Some forum members got their Christmas gifts early in the form of a neatly packaged PCIe power adapter mod, while the rest of us are left bones to chew on in the subzero winter snow.  I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting more annoyed as time passes.  Now those of you that got YOUR early gift, don't preach to me about having patience.  I know that patience is a virtue, but my computer is not sentient, therefore has no problem burning out a 24 pin connector whenever certain conditions present themselves.
 
EVGA owes it to its customers not to drag their feet concerning PCIe power adapter mod availability; the earlier the better.  However, I'm getting this twisted knot in my stomach quietly whispering the song:  "That Witch Left Me In The Cornfield All Alone and Broken Hearted."  In translation, the EVGA PCIe power adapter mod for the masses may never see the light of day, and we may all be in for one of the biggest corporate hoaxes in recent memory!  I truly hope I'm wrong!!

    The way Supply and demand works, means that it doesn't matter what you demand, until they have something to supply. However, if it makes you feel better to get upset, by all means do so. It won’t change the facts, but at least you have had the opportunity to vent. We can blame the company that developed the fix, the company that is making the fix, the company that designed the card, or the guy that invented electricity, we can even blame the person that bought the product, if we want too, but in the end, what is important, is not who we blame, but how it gets fixed. If Evga, had pulled an ASUS, and said it’s not our issue, would you still be up-set? Even a dog won’t bite the hand that feeds it. (And if it did, I wouldn’t be surprised if it went to sleep hungry.)  If you cannot wait for Evga to give you a solution, you would be well within your right to build your own, or purchase an alternative.  When the power goes out, you can sit in the dark and gripe, or get up and get a blanket, and a flash light, either way, your still not going to watch TV until the power comes back on. How mad you get about that is in-material, don’t get upset about what you can change, change it, don’t get up-set, about what you can’t change, you can’t change it anyway.
     
    It's natural to have to wait, When Bell invented the phone in 1876, he had to wait 4 years, for Eddision to be able to put a light buld in a phone booth, then they both had to wait a hole year for someone to construct a power station. I bet they didn't sit at a computer complaining over the internet.

    That was absolutely EPIC! I loved it! I am seriously going to save it as a quote and bust it out in other forums I am involved in when something like the OP happens. Thank you good sir!

    I somehow don't remember the Law of Supply and demand ever being remotely described as such. Must be that New Economics that the country is falling apart under.
     
    The consumer drives that Law, not the buisiness.... at least not if they want to survive, anyway.
     
    @OP,
    Go ahead... If you paid for something that that you feel is not performing as billed, let the Vendor know (possibly a bit differently tone-wise) and keep persuing until a mutual satisfaction is reached. It's what keeps all the players in the ecocosm honest.. It has been a long time for such a simole fix.

    Actually, it was quite a few years after the invention of the telephone before there was any such thing as a 'phone booth', let alone one lit electrically.  The first phones were installed directly into homes and business's.  Also, after perfecting a workable light bulb, Edison didn't have to wait for anyone to build a distribution system.  He, (his company actually), built the first few systems.  The first one was for a system of street lights and a few houses in London, England.  A few months later he turned on the first system in the U.S. in Lower Manhatten in New York City.
     
    Anyway...., I'm as anxious as anyone for the new parts for the earlier X58 MB's, but I can't do much except wait patiently.  I'm sure EVGA will get them out as soon as they can.  It may not make one happy, but the first duty of EVGA is to make money for it's owners, and they make more money getting new video cards out there, than designing, producing and distributing modifications for older products.  The apparent fact that there may be a problem with certain MB's doesn't mean that EVGA designed that fault in there on purpose.

         Thanks for the support.  Yeah, the PCIe power adapter mod is just taking too long, and I'm sure there are more people than just myself that are more than slightly annoyed.  However, the "good old boy" mentality on these forums gets disturbed if someone complains too harshly.
         EVGA's decision to pre-ship initial power adapter mods to a "chosen" select few is dubious corporate decision making, even in the best scenario.  Behavior like that reeks favoritism and alienates those that have been left out.
         KMoore4318's description of the Law of Supply and Demand theory in relation to my original posting does not fit and is a bad example.  I'm a social studies teacher with a degree in economics (highly qualified status), however I will not attempt to engage KMoore4318 in a discussion of corporate responsibility within a capitalist free market economic model.  Glenn Beck has a number one selling book called "Arguing With Idiots," where he has a whole section devoted to our capitalist free market economic model; check it out.
         I just hope that EVGA makes good on its promise to make the PCIe power adapter mod available to all those that feel the need to utilize it.  In my 49 years of experience, I've seen to many corporations make promises that they can't or won't follow through on (BP anyone??)

    Well I don’t have the background to argue Social studies, but I'm pretty good at math, if you have 50 of something, and want to send out 2,500 of them, someone is going to be disappointed. Perhaps you can ship what you don't have, but in my example demand exceeds supply. Stock quantities of negative numbers, are undefined. I guess the New Economics, is not supported by the New Math.  
     
     
    Had a similer issue with a hospital a few years ago, after an emergancy room visit, without insurance, They insested in sending bills for $587,000, I kept telling them that a person that spent 6 months in a hospital, with no job or income, that had exhausted their savings, and already lost one house was not going to write them a check, for 1/2 Million Dollars. I could have used your Economics then, it would have been nice to pull cash out of an empty account, to pay a bill with nonexesting funds. Because I just saw no way to send them something I did not have.

    Get it right if you take shots my friend. I am one of the first to bring this issue to the table. did my research, posted the research and did something about it. Sitting around and complaining does nothing, thus no reward for you my friend. boasting? more like telling members i have recieved it and posting my results from it.
     
    BTW- I am enjoying it as well

    OP you have done nothing but whine and complian about evga and the pcie powerboost. then attack members for there thoughts, much like you did toward evga. jacob replied to your post, so imo let it go. if you did your reasearch, you would find even more that the gpus need to be over 1.2v for this to happen. extreme overclocking. sure i can get a bit hot with lower volts, but will not catch your house on fire. to your resaearch and you will see you dont need to worry so much. 
     
    to be honest, its the owners of non classified mb thats really need to worry. the traces are smaller than the classys and can produce the effect you and others are worried about easier than that of the classifieds.

      Glenn Beck has a number one selling book called "Arguing With Idiots," where he has a whole section devoted to our capitalist free market economic model; check it out. 
     

    I was actually leaning your way until you used Glenn Beck as a backup for your argument. Seriously Glenn Beck? If I asked for psychological help would you direct me to Dr. Phil?

    yes you got yours but did you have a system power supply ext.

    Not going to use the sec. one till i get a fix. and my sec. system is still working ok with the two GTX 480's on it but today I am going to take one off it to be safe.

    comment was directed toward the OP, no one else. im entitled to post my thoughts as are you. to all that are waiting, imo should be thankful, we tested the first batches on various mb and posted results for all. had there been any issue we would have been affected not you. eitherway im sure evga will release a mass product of the powerboost now that the results have been given and customer testing has been done imo. flaming is the intention of this thread imo, started bad will end bad.

    Sir, you are quite mistaken in your assumptions of my intentions concerning this thread.  Your accusation that I started this thread to inflame is wrong.  I'm an EVGA customer that is tired of waiting for this mod and took my right to voice my opinion.  It's EVGA fanboy satraps (look up the definition of an ancient Persian satrap) like yourself that often move in quickly to stamp out posters that have legitimate grievances who voice concerns.  When they do voice concerns, you embarass and mock them for their issues.  An example is your "I got mine" posting.  You sir are no better or special than anyone else on this forum.  Yes, you got your mod first and I'm glad you're enjoying it.
     
    It now appears that EVGA will be releasing the mod next week.  Thankfully, the rest of us who have been patiently waiting will now be able to protect our systems from premature meltdown.  Thank you EVGA!

    dude take a freaking joke already. you knew evga was releasing these to the public soon. testing need to be done on the units sent out by evga to the "first ones"  to reassure there would be good feedback and everything working as it should imo. never the less you will have your soon. not to mention your rig configuration is not in question for the powerboost, you are fine and would be fine imo. say what you will, your comments and "voice" is welcome. shame how a small poke a hummor turns out this way. well you sir will have your powerboost soon eitherway. and remmemmber to install power boost in a pcie x1 slot if you can, not x16/x8. the power draw needs to come mostly from the molex. by placing the mod in the highest pcie slot your drawing more power from the molex mod vs the 24pin, other wise middle would be equal and bottom would be more draw on the 24-pin, but still some from the molex.

    Because you dismissed another posters legitimate concern.  jrmitchell1983, I have no beef with you, and in reality you're probably a pretty nice/cool guy.  However, you sometimes show little tack/empathy for others by dismissing or making light of their feelings.  All of us here are EVGA supporters, however, when any corporation produces a product that is defective, it should be corrected at no cost to the consumer.  Just because EVGA produces a fix, doesn't me that "I should feel lucky" and shut up.
