I'm no electronics genius, but isn't this a problem?







When I say RoF killed my video card...



Well I'm destitute now and it's all Hawgs fault.  I went down to Fry's to get a GTX 660 Ti and because of what he's been saying to me I walked out with GTX 770.  Thanks Hawg!  Since I don't have a wife of my own I sold somebody elses to get this, threw in the kids as a bonus.  Just hope nobody involved can find me.

Holy Cow!  It's a real monstrosity!  Getting that thing into my box...

Ok I don't get the translation: 'I think that we're not here to socialize.' Why do you say that Flat?

My translation came up "...not here to communicate"


Anyway, ahem, I can fly the channel map now.Dance

Whoa! You have a 600W power supply? I'll bet fitting an 11.5 inch card in was a trick! My SATA plug-in block wouldn't allow that! Not enough room. What $375.00! Gulp

Nice card, glad you can fly the CM.

"I think that what we have here is a failure to communicate", ie: I couldn't tell what SS's photos were supposed to mean. I see your translators made my point gloriously! LOL!

I have a 650W power supply

Yes it was a .... well lets just say I had to reposition all my cards, thank goodness for open slots, and move my main hard drive. Oh and lets not forget a new system for cable management.

Try $445 Yeah I paid too much, but I was there, the card which had the best price I could find wasn't, and it was a long enough drive I hated going home empty handed. And the longer I stood there the more I was willing to pay.



Flat notice the split tops on the little grey cylinders.

Flat, look at the capacitors on the card. They are all split open.

SS was the card actually working like that?

Ahh! My professional opinion is that could be problematic.

Ahhh, now I see it. My mechanic once handed me some... thingy off the helicopter then was rolling his eyes when he had to point out the crack in response to my confused look. I learned to not ask.

Yes it was still working, however, as I said, I felt I was getting signs it soon would not be.

When I saw the damage it was an (holy crap! - well that explains it) reaction.
