    That's assuming heat is the problem in the first place. In my case I just think I have a bad batch of cards. The heat only happens after it dies. The temps were otherwise normal when the thing worked properly.

    If the 7700 draws 3000mA at max..(Specs seem to say that it can)
    And the sled is designed for a Gobi1000 which looks like it draws 2000-2500mA at max.

    The sled may not be able to provide enough current which causes a slow meltdown of the card and a temperature increase. Once the components fail from lack of power, then they really overheat.

    I wish I could afford it. I just opened up my wallet a minute ago and I think a moth flew out.

    Yesterday I walked down the street and a bum actually gave ME some change.

    This morning I ate cereal with a fork to save milk.

    Then I opened up a gmail account so I could eat the spam.

    Fried yet another MC7700. This time in the CF-19Mk4.
    The previous two times I wrote in this thread about how they went bad by failing to properly scan and acquire channels and started to overheat. This time the module's USB devices cycle through a routine of disappearing and partially reconnecting with the OS every few minutes. It's definitely toast.

    The good thing is they go for 25 bucks US on cheesebay these days and I also have a spare that I can steal from my CF-30.

    Did you flash with the latest firmware? I read somewhere of something similar with the 7750 cards getting stuck in some sort of endless loop that fries or locks up the card.
