    Can't say for sure about the catching fire, but if the fan stops working on a high-end graphics board it can burn out the GPU pretty easily.

    Thanks yah iam RMA it but they said they may not cover burns. even thought i had nothing to do with it. So i have to send them in and i might not even get my cards replaced. Since i bought them they barely would ever run quad gpu either i got the crappy 2 out of the groups of 7950gx2s

    Might see if instead of replacing them, they give you a credit for the purchase of something better. There are quite a few very solid performing video boards out since that series.

    Quad SLI never had proper driver support and I warned you months ago that it was not worth it unless you were running a 30" super high res LCD or larger. I am sorry to hear this news though, that really sucks. I highly doubt they will RMA a card with electrical burns. If they did indeed burn, that motherboard is probably toast too. Sure sounds like your case cooling and airflow is not up to snuff. What case do you have?
