i shouldn't think so given that the only connection on many TVs here in europe are scart.. i.e. for hooking up DVD/PS2 etc.. and there is no way that they could have that low a refresh rate

Re: Overheating problem

make sure you use core temp for monitoring the temps on the chip... that way you can see if it really is overheating... if it is then probably not seated the heatsink properly..

My setup with a Scythe Ninja Rev.B. personally I'd recommend you dont go ith the Scythe Ninja.. i found the pins on mine were loose and basically nothing could be done bar bu...
