I just got an EVGA GTX 460 and a Seasonic X650. After throwing those two parts into my system I got some beeps on my first boot (1 long. two short). Everything boots up as normal and the card works fine...until the temperature skyrockets and the card overheats.
If I throw my old card back into the computer it doesn't beep. I am wondering why the computer would throw those codes and the system still boot.
The voltage is auto set at 1.012 for some reason. I tried lowering it to .950 but that did not help the problem.
I am probably going to RMA the card. Good idea?
