I live in calif.
I contacted Newegg earlier they said I can only replace the card in an RMA (I pay return shipping), they send the same model back. I would have loved exchanging it with the twin frozr III one, but they would charge me 15% restock fee for it, pluss I still pay the return shipping, thus I feel like if I return the card, I will not buy another one from them. I have amazon prime, so free shipping,a nd often tax free, but most 7850's are OOS through amazon. I coul dperhaps get a 7950, but then that is more cost, and I would have alread burnt $40 returning the 7850.
I wiggled the fan (per what other reviews and people said) and the rattling seems to have stopped, but there is still the hi-pitched wwwrrrr of the fan blades even at 20% speed.
