rale317 It is under warranty though for another year, but I want them to give me an equivalent performing card that's newer cause I don't trust their 980Tis anymore and for good reason. (I'm not asking for a 1080Ti, I'm not looking to score a free upgrade. I only want something that performs the same that's a differ model in case there's a manufacturer error here.) Any thoughts, opinions, experiences?
j2345912At least it's under warranty. But very odd regardless. How far did you push the card in terms of overclocking& voltage?
ty_ger07It's not a resistor. It is an inductor. I have no idea why they don't label them Lxx on the tops of the components. Impedance? They are labeled as Lxx on the PCB, at least.It is Very interesting that those large inductors, of all things, would burn.
Dr.DeathI guess like the ones in this thread with the links I showed ? don't know seems a few substandard / defective /bad batch parts ?? I guess there systems was at fault as well ??? good luck
Dr.Deathwith the rash of these posts on this something seems up . makes me wonder about mine now
VegetaCreeperLet’s not forget when gtx 480 sli burned down houses ;)
Dave3dI have NEVER lied about OC'ing my cards.I never have.I dont know how, and I dont want to know.I buy the BEST video card out there, so I dont have to buy a new one every year and a half to keep up with games (not so much an issue now that 60 FPS is a bonus feature on games).Why would I spend $1200 to just fry my card, or make the life of the card much less than it normally would be, because of the extra voltage and heat?This is probably why I still have working video cards from AGP to current cards.
Dr.Deathit now there not going to support nothing but what ''THEY'' want to , now has nothing to do with you and your wants and needs . your personal computer is now going to be ''there'' public one ...
