  1. Apparently, EVGA's support & customer care are excellent so I decided to try them! :ph34r:

     

    No, but seriously - I've got terrible luck I guess, I received my new GPU and after two-three days this connector died:

    I noticed during playing BF1 that the card was at around 85C (!) when normal gaming temps are around 50C. I immediately turned the game off and went to check if everything was okay through my case window and noticed the radiator fan wasn't spinning. I shut down my PC, decided to try plugging the fan in to my motherboard - turns out the fan is working perfectly so it's the connector that died (I verified by reconnecting it again).

     

    I already contacted EVGA's support to ask for assistance and they responded: "I apologize for the trouble with your card, we can replace it under warranty for this." and instructed me to file an RMA request so I'm waiting for acceptance and I'm going to ship the card to them. Sadly, AFAIK they don't have an office in Poland so I'll probably be forced to send it to EU HQ in Munich, Germany.

      To be fair I don't know why there are GTX 1080s with enhanced power delivery etc, the FTW version has a 10+2 VRMs while the reference PCB has 5+1 VRMs.

       

      Since both can overclock to the same levels, why does the FTW PCB have two 8-pin power connectors instead of one? I mean, the 1080 shouldn't be able to draw that much power and its overclocking potential is limited by solely by voltage... The only real difference is that the FTW PCB allows for a higher power limit threshold...

      they are overkill...even a basic reference card with a crap cooler can max out the overclock, it's limited by the quality of the chip you have on it...

      my card has 8+2 power phase and it's said on the box itself that it's ''over-designed for more overclocking'' lol :P
