LMK what they say - though I doubt they'll do anything - nothing is broken, and everything is working, and I doubt the tech support is going to have the tech knowhow to agree with an assessment of "too high idle temps"
Anyway, so far, though not many people have posted - I see that these cards *can* idle at low temps.
It makes me want to take mine apart and see if there's just some loss of contact or something silly like that....
Maybe I'll just reseat the existing heatsink with some Ceramique or something and see if that helps.....hmmmmmmmm
