We might have had bad luck or were just plain stupid with the 12% overclock today, but something is not right in our opinion. The base fan speeds are extremely low at idle (26%~29%) and then do not ramp properly as the temperatures increase during load. Playing around with fan speeds utilizing Riva Tuner or nTune can solve this problem, but should a user really have to do this? We think not.
Geoff found the same with his 8800 GT sample; the fan speed ramps up too slow

His sample didn't die on him though? Gary Key implied Anandtech has lost 4 8800GT cards now... If G92 cards are having problems with sudden deaths, then that would conveniently explain why Nvidia has released so few of them and been slow to meet demand if nothing else.

Nah, mine has already survived 24hours non stop 3D overclocked 680/2000, looks like they did something wrong ?

considering the crappy cooler, high failure rates wouldn't surprise me

Didn't have the time to test those cards week after week, sorry :/


EDIT: seems like they can die shortly after arrival, electromigration perhaps? Although 65nm is not that new, it is the first time NVIDIA build such an powerful processor that small, a failure in design?

I really don't know. I haven't browsed any NVIDIA support forums to check just how many issues are being reported, but despite the lack of supply I am noticing some threads reporting artifacting with 8800GT cards already.
