Could you please ask your buddy if the clicking noise only happens in games and also changes clicking rate when she moves around within the game? The clicking I hear seems to be directly tied to the frame rate within the 3D game.I`m hesitant to send my card back to the States (EVGA). How much would shipping cost? And will we be charged tax? I might just wait for the new cards to come out and pay a little extra to step up to those using the EVGA step-up program.
Just got off the phone with my buddy, she also gets clicking from her BFG 8800GTS. She never really noticed since her PC is in a cabinet with small air ducts about 10feet away.
