Yes well, business is as business does. Evga also had an issue with certain cards being distributed with the wrong bios. In the case that I looked at, it was to the gain of the client as the 'faulty' bios actually provided better performance than the card's advertised specs.

The problems I experience seems to be heat related. Heaven knows how they can ship a card that every second client experiences lockups with because of overheating. Their solution is to 'underclock' the card to just above their 'standard' 88gt range and improve the fan settings.

The new bios was adapted for me by one of their support guys as I was and am not willing to change anything related to the specs of the card. It lowers the clock speed but (on par with the official bios release for the sc range) "improves fanspeed auto sensor".

Then again, there are a lot of people out there who have only good things to say about the card like how well it overclocks.
