I will be only too happy to RMA this board AGAIN if it fails due to high MCP temps. Which incidently is exactly what I think happened to my last board. Somebody needs to actually ADDRESS this problem and quit expecting consumers to foot the bill for repairs or modifications to a system that obviously does NOT WORK.
nVidia get your **** together!
I am not going to "mod" this chipset cooling, but I am going to replace the crappy chipset fan with a Sunon KDE-1207PHV1 . I may work a mod of the existing fan in too for a push/pull setup. Even though I would RMA the board AGAIN, I would like to actually USE it for a while. Tomorrow I am going to put it in it's coffin - oops I mean case.
On the upside of another nightmare in my ever so dull existence, I now have half of a new roof. The roofers FINALLY arrived this morning. They should have the job done tomorrow.
