The cursed card survived 7.5hrs of Furmark unscathed, and is currently 52% through a GROGPU2 wu. If it's developed the 'bad solder' problem that plagued the 8xxx-series then perhaps keeping it working hard will stop the joints cracking?
Some bad news: the a3 core crashed ("program has stopped working" msg from Win7) just after I woke up this morning and I lost a 2500pt wu - checkpoint didn't work for some reason.
update: woohoo, I think it's finally died!
