Pny sticker slides of center of fan after card heats up, could cause to overheat if you do not catch it in time.

This card is great. I download nTune and can overclock. Two issues though: 1. It crashes Media Player whenever play a DVD. My PC is a Dell. 2. The PNY logo sticker on the fan was spinned off center due to heat. It caused noise and overheat. I removed it and it is good now.

Excellent video card

by Yang Liu on 4/3/2008

very nice video card. Good performance, and easy to install. I install it both on XP home, and Ubuntu 7.10. It works well on both platforms. Low price and high performance. Strongly recommend. Read More

Good card, with some glitches

on 4/4/2008

Got the card from Buy.com for a real good price, and that is the main reason I bought the card. Card shipped in two days to my door, installation was breezy. However, the card start to make noise after 2 hr of usage. As it turns out, the stupid sticker on top of the heatsink fan came off the fan head and slowing down the fan considerably. Taking off the glued sticker off solved the problem of intermittent noise, but the fan is still noisy. Other than the card noise, I really hate how hot it runs even at idle, in my case 58C.
