Are there any owners of 3090 FTW Ultra that have that card for a while now without issues e.g. "red light of death" how is the card holding on what do you guys think of the single red light issue is it coincident, defect or something else.
 
Should I worry about getting 3090FTW and the same single red light of death?
 
Please give some advice

    Ive had the card since launch, had no issues yet. Performs as expected and I have not flashed the bios. Didn't even know people have been having issues until now.

    Launch day 3090 FTW3 Ultra owner here - other than the driver issues, and the LG CX Gsync issues (all of which are slowly being resolved) - everything is working quite well.
     
    I've been working the card all day when at work, and all night when I sleep folding work units for folding@home for a while now, no issues as long as I don't push my OC too high (I've settled on +100 GPU +600 VRAM for rock solid stability gaming/folding, and for benching I do +200 / +750).

    I asked that somewhere else but didn't get response. I don't OC so say if I get the card within days how is the card run straight from the box, how the fans at stock are are they curve quiet. I hear a lot of people talk about undervolting, why would they do that, will I have to even think about the same. Also I was never fen of precisionX so I was only planning to install just to turn RGB's off and uninstall it, how will that wok, any advice would be great

    Even overclocked and auto fans I can barely hear it over my case fans, and my case fans are not loud. However, I have a large case with two 180mm fans blowing cool air onto the card. Max temps gaming/folding 72C, and now that it's colder I see around 68/69C.
     
    I uninstalled PX1 after updating the fan firmware and turning off all RGB. I use afterburner.

    So once I get the card, do I need to update the firmware. I have heard about the fan firmware so i don't want to install firmware other then for that, will I be told what is the firmware for before I move foreword.
    And also,  what is the thing that I hear some people talking about undervolting.
    Thanks a lot for giving me the info I appreciate

    The fan firmware prompt will happen when you open PX1 version 1.1.0.9 or .11 for the first time. No clue how to undervolt, as the voltage slider goes from 0 to 100. You can set a voltage curve with frequency, but that's fairly advanced and if you don't plan on overclocking I don't see much of a point. Other folks may find it useful if they want to limit the card.

    Yes, reason I asked about the deal with undervolting if perhaps there is an issue why they even talking about that. I have never played with either precisionX or afterburner I let the card run as it comes from the box that’s why I ask if I will be able to do with this 3090FTW ultra, just install and of course the fan firmware, but other then that just run the card.
     
    Do you know how much time I have after getting the card to get the extended warranty, last I check it was 30 days. I know when I got my Titans here at my local store years ago , then  I registered them on EVGA website and got the 10 year warranty on all 3, I hope that is still eh same I mean if I get them here in Canada and registered and get the 10 year warranty through EVGA
    Thanks

    If you run it 100% stock out of the box, I recommend setting the VBIOS switch on the side of the card to OC (flip switch, reboot - or just set it to that with the PC off and boot). It doesn't actually OC the card, but sets a minimum of 33% fan speed along with a slightly more aggressive fan speed profile to keep the card cooler.
     
    The extended warranty info is all listed here: https://www.evga.com/support/warranty/extended.asp
     
    "The option to purchase will be available at the time of registration if registration is completed within 90 days of purchase. If you decline at the time of registration, the option to purchase the Extended Warranty will be available up to 90 days from the original date of purchase."

    So since I removed precision x, and DDU'd the drivers and reinstalled them, I haven't had any black screens or flicker issues. I've since updated the nvidia drivers to the latest and have run plenty of games maxed or near-maxed. The only major difference is no Precision X. I'd said in other threads I had crashes every time I tried to benchmark. 
     
    The only two things that have changed are no Precision X, and totally fresh drivers installed. Precision X was also not working and bugging out before I finally uninstalled it. OSD failed a few times, and then the graphs bugged out. I think I likely have a card that isn't going to be stable over 2Ghz, but that's fine. I was never actually intending to OC it. But I wonder if my issues were in part precision x having problems. Like I said, no black screens, crashes, and benchmarks have run just fine since DDU and removing Precision X entirely. I'd still be fine buying a 3090 since the performance is top tier and EVGA's warranty is the best in the industry.

    When my card is working fine, I'm not on the forums. It's one of those "you see it because it's a problem" type things. There are issues with the 3000 series. The amount of issues compared to the small number that have gone out IS a bit worrying. Luckily, EVGA's warranty covers it. Not ideal as launches go, but we're luckily not dumb folks that bought from scalpers without a warranty, I hope.

    At this point, it seems like it was a bad batch of both 3080s and 3090s that went out as maybe the 2nd or 3rd batch they got?  Seems a lot of people that got their cards around the same time are the ones having the issues, and I don't think anyone that go some from the last "wave" had problems.
    I got my 3080 from the first wave of Notify Me cards & have had no issues with it at all thus far, been using it for weeks with a lot of long multi-hour gaming sessions in things as light as CSGO & as heavy as benchmarking 3DMark, GTA V & other games.

    Are there any owners of 3090 FTW Ultra that have that card for a while now without issues e.g. "red light of death" how is the card holding on what do you guys think of the single red light issue is it coincident, defect or something else.
     
    Should I worry about getting 3090FTW and the same single red light of death?
     
    Please give some advice
     



    I have one. It works fine.....I haven't seen a 'real' issue yet...I saw some issues with drivers (or Precision X1 coupled with the driver...took out X1, no more issue) but that's it..
     
    I wouldn't hesitate to get one if you want it and have the cash.
     
    eVGA will stand behind it unless you abuse the card ..

    Most of those failures were caused by bad PSU. Been using my 3090 for 2 weeks. Runs flawlessly.

    the hell are you talking about red light of death, ive been on these forums for 2 hours a day since a week before launch, ive never seen or heard anything about this



    There's at least 5-6 different threads about people experiencing the card randomly "stopping working" with one (or more)of the red-lights near the PCIe power connectors lit up, and the card doesn't work after that.  Some of them have already been RMAed, eVGA is aware of the issue and suggests an RMA straight away when asked via phone customer service.
    It's a known issue, like I said probably with an entire batch of 3090s/3080s (same PCB) that I'm guessing were made improperly resulting in the cards bricking themselves either hours or days in to use.  I don't think anyone that's had the issue has used their card for more than a few days before it happened, most people that have had the issue have said it crops up within hours of initial use.

    3090 Ultra Owner here! My card died, but I may have some input others may be interested in since I'm in a unique position where I have access to 2 3090s in 2 nearly identical setups.

    Got my card last Tuesday had it running a mild overclock +600/+100 when it died on Saturday while playing the game 'Grounded' which uses about 80% of the gpu. Screens went black while playing but could still hear discord. Restarted pc and display ports no longer would work. Just a black screen. I believe it was making it into windows, just no display. Switching between normal and oc bios did nothing and second computer behaved the same way when card was installed.

    Few more notes: I was running the newest bios from precision. Drivers were a clean install.
    On day one my overclock was +800 / +120 with a power target of 107%. And it black screened on me in the exact same way playing Doom Eternal. Sound still playing, just a black display. At the time I thought it was just an unstable OC, but now I believe it may have just been early signs of the issue plaguing my card.

    My brother got his 3090 last Monday and it's been running fine for him so far no black screens or crashing. He has not dabbled with overclocking.

    Both systems are running :
    i9-9900k @ 5.1 all core oc.
    16gb DDR4400
    My system has an HX1200i psu and his has HX1000i.

    In 3dmark timespy my out of box score was 17,300.
    When I overclocked I got it to 18,100.

    His out of the box score was 18,100.
    He has not overclocked, but I wonder if issues with my card affected this score. I'll know today when ups delivers my replacement card and hopefully I'll remember to come update this as stuff happens.

    Went to Canada computers earlier this morning as they do have few 3090FTW Ultra in stock, got back home all exited, installed and it worked for literally 4 minutes.
     
    I honestly was so hesitant on getting this card and speaking with current users that don’t have issues I convinced myself these people who were facing issues must have got bad batch and who knows maybe they did.
     
    Here I am facing the same thing, one of the red lights is ON and the card is literally dead, installed my titan back on and it’s all good.
    I'm going back to return the card I have 15 days.
     
    Honestly, at this point I'm not sure how I feel about this 3080/3090 launch I really dint need the card but I always get the best I can for time been I just hope that the current owners who enjoying their cards won’t face issues down the line and I hope whatever is going on Its going to get totally fixed.

    Oh no, it's like some of the early 2080 ti's that had the space invaders memory issue.
     
    and are you the one with nephew that had 2 bad cards?

    With a 3 year default warranty and EVGAs customer service, I'm not worried about mine. I do have an older computer used for backup that got my 2080 Super XC Ultra if something does happen, so even more peace of mind with that.

    It does suck that the card died on you. Out of curiosity - what PSU and are you using the cables that came with that unit or not?

    Yap it’s me. How many times and usually when something bad is going around, you kind of thinking "it won’t happen to you"?
     Secretly I was really hoping for that. It’s very disappointing, but not the end of the world I hope within months whatever that is will get fixed and I mean fixed the right way not quick band aid that will fall off as time goes on.

    I got bit with the 2080 ti memory deal. two early nvidia founders with micron, they quickly replaced with samsung so it happens, but i did not think it would get me.
     
    are you going to return to store? or RMA with evga?
