    Default BFG 8800 GTS 512mb

    Hi everyone,

    I have just sorted out the issues with my PC crashing when gaming but i still feel that my GPU (BFG 8800 GTS 512mb) sounds a little noisy under load,
    not just the fan noise but it also makes a sound like a hard drive running when gaming (hard to explain), I have never had a graphics card like this one before (BFG 8800 GTS) so unsure if the noises it's making is normal. This may sound like a stupid question to some but best to find out before i go and send it back to BFG.

    Thanks for your time.

    Well, my XFX 8800GTS 512MB makes no noise while gaming. My fan doesn't even spin up since the card stays cool. Sounds like a real problem with the card. One good thing is BFG has quite possibly the best possible RMA service on the planet.

    Thanks casecutter, i had a feeling the noises where not normal, and you are right about BFG being the best possible RMA service on the planet,
    I contacted them earlier this week and they did not mess around asking a 1000 questions they just took my card details and gave me a RMA number with in 24 hours of first email.

    I just RMA'd a power supply with them and got it from Illinois to Ontario in 3 days too.
