sorry to bump lol, but i want to buy one tomorrow morning a sometime (im in uk) and would like a few opinions before i do. So has anyone used gigabyte before and know of this product or about their warranty?
Yeah... I wouldn't call Gigabyte anything special but they've been putting Zalman fans on there cards for quite some time. I have a Gigabyte 7950GT and its pretty solid and hasn't given me any problems yet.
If you do have to ship back for service at any point, I hope they are quicker on service on your side of the pond than they are on mine. I had a 7950GX2 that went belly up I got an RMA on. (only took 2 days for them to issue the RMA) But they have had the card for almost 3 weeks now and not a peep out of them.
I am considering getting this card at well... but I've run into a little snag. The 8800GT were running hot, because the BIOS wasn't turning the fan on high until in was melting... like 80C or something.
Now the other manufacturers have updated the BIOS on the graphics card so the fan starts cooler more, sooner. But I've read that GIGABYTE has NOT done this.
I've checked their website and it doesn't seem like there are any updates for the 8800GT.
Can anyone provide anymore information on this situation, and if I've got my facts straight?
