    I have been reading up some more on it and it seems a couple of dozen Galaxy cards have been the ones affected.

    cards exploding surely not ? would take out ur whole pc , who would be responsible then to replace everything ? nvidia or 3rdparty ? imagine house caught fire :O

    Re: GTX 780 Ti Allegedly Being Suspended and Recalled in China

    People can mean very different things by "exploding". If this is an unauthorised change to reference design it could be something like Galaxy using lower grade caps or chokes, which can "explode" with quite a violent pop, sparks, smoke, etc. without doing horrendous amounts of damage. "Explode" doesn't necessarily imply the card violently and utterly dismantled itself

    However, if a card did die violently taking out the rest if your PC, I suspect the liability would depend on the law in your particular jurisdiction. If this is a manufacturing fault the manufacturer (Galaxy, in this case) would be responsible for replacing the graphics card, and I suspect you could make a good case in a small claims court (or local equivalent) for compensation for any other damaged components caused directly by the card giving way - that's why companies have to have public liability insurance etc, after all. But YMMV, and particularly your local legal system may vary.

    This will all get sorted, galaxy are pretty good at rectifying issues where they can.

    On a lighter note, I bet these nvidia cards still ran cooler than the newer AMD offerings

    At least its not something that you would typically hold in your hand or have on display in, say a vodafone store - Like the iPad Air

    :-\ They run that hot to keep your legs toasty and warm in the winter when you're sat at your desk.

    You can also keep your cup of hot beverage at the perfect temperature for longer by resting it on top of your pc case

    p.s. I really want a R9 290 - just one that runs slightly quieter than my washing machine

    Eh? Chip temperature and total wattage are not the same thing at all.

    High chip temperature (can be) as sign of a cooler not up to the job. And in the case of the R9-290X it is.

    But total wattage is what will keep your legs warm.

    So if you have a R9-290X drawing 271W and a GTX 780Ti drawing 269W (taken from W1zzard's TPU reviews: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N...780_Ti/25.html), they will both keep your legs equally nice and cosy (well if you legs can tell the 2W difference they really would make great thermometers!).

    Actually, as the ht4u.net article showed, if the R9-290X had a better cooler it use up to 30W less (running silicon hot means higher leakage which can make a big difference in power consumption).

    Not really. The fact that uber mode keeps the chip constant at 95C and steady at 1GHz indicates that the AMD cooler is absolutely up to the job. It was AMDs design decision to engineer the card for a 95C target GPU temp. As you've pointed out yourself, the *heat* dissipated by the chip is only indirectly related to its temperature: it generates no more heat than a 780 Ti, which means the PCB and other components will get no hotter (except perhaps those very close to the die mountings). As long as the die mounting has been engineered to withstand constant operation at 95C, there's nothing wrong with that choice.

    In fact, the high temperature is likely to come in part from them having a relatively small die size for the performance and power draw of the chip - more power going through less silicon is going to increase heat density, and therefore temperature.

    Does this mean the KFA2 model could possibly be affected too? Seeing as KFA2 is the European division of Galaxy and their cards are identical (different name).

    My bad - I was trying to be funny. Interesting about the power efficiency of the coolers though. I'm looking forward to see what the non-reference R9 290 boards can achieve :-D
