AndzxYesterday was day 1 with it for me, its crashed a lot until I put -100 core clock, seems stable now ran it for a few hours in games last night.

pixelcowboyXC3 for a day here and no crashes. I ddu'd before installing a it.
Rage_MI have the XC Black 3080, which isn't factory overclocked. OC'd GPU+40 and Memory+700 in Precision X1, using a Thermaltake 750W Toughpower G1. So far I've yet to run across any crashes in games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Monster Hunter World, Skyrim VR, and DOOM Eternal. Gonna try out some more games in a little while, but so far so good.
pau164Argh, so this is going to be like silicon lottery? :(I guess maybe there's a silver lining to being unable to get a card.

An up close picture. @FrammishExcellent post, and I concur. I’m glad I missed out on a first wave card now. 2 years ago we had the Space Invaders and now this. I always seem to get caught up in hype, but at the same time, I’m glad that I’ve missed out on a card right at launch because of these issues that always seem to crop up.
FrammishI think Igor is onto something. A few things to keep in mind, though. This effect will depend on a lot of things and circuitry elsewhere could mitigate the noise making the difference between POSCAPs and MLCCs a moot point for EVGA boards. But it also may not be mitigated and could affect EVGA boards. 3090s have slightly different/higher current draw and that could also change things up. I’d expect that to make things worse but that is not a given. It looks like 3090s have an extra power phase or so that could easily make this not apply to the 3090s. It takes good test equipment to see things at that level and speed but overclockability is a practical handle on this. Got to emphasize there will be lots of things likely affecting the noise levels so just because POSCAPs may be used doesn’t necessarily mean problems. The 3080 XC3 Ultra has a patch of MLCCs in the EVGA product photo but there’s a majority that appear to be all POSCAPs. The board I wanted (3090 FTW3 Ultra) shows all POSCAPs. Could be the line was changed to switch to at least some MLCCs and the photos just need updating, or the photos could be accurate. It will take people getting their cards reporting what they got, if they have lockups or low overclocks, or a statement from EVGA to clear this up. For now at least, I’m glad I didn’t get a 1st wave board and will be watching this closely. Very curious if the product images here are accurate (those could be early production and not up to date), what capacitors are actually shipping to customers, and if the effect is even real (though I suspect it is), and if this applies to 3090s too or just 3080s.
Rage_MA bit on the low quality side, but you can still sort of make it out[image]https://i.imgur.com/3iBE6Z8.jpg[/image
torickWhat exactly are we looking at and looking for as i have no idea what MLCCs and POSCAPs are? Any pictures and location to at.
stroker425Crashes usually happen first week due to drivers and games not being properly optimized.
