direraptor22It worried me because I have an EVGA 970 FTW+, same type of card as the SSC I think......
zopharNever had one that bad. But I did have a 9800 GX2 with a water block on it that decided to go out in spectacular fashion with pretty colors. Also left some marks on the copper block from the heat.

direraptor22I work as a parts salesman and sold an EVGA 970 SSC to one of my customers the other day, he brought it back the next day saying that it was great, ran all of his games smoothly until it went SNAP CRACKLE POP, then smoke and flames everywhere! Almost burnt down his house! Thankfully his first instinct was to unplug the PC and that put the fire out (whew). We swapped his card out with a Gigabyte G1 Gaming 970... and his replacement has been working great so far. AFAIK, the card was installed properly and even had a nice RM850 power supply running it. The rest of the system was not damaged, fortunately. Has YOUR graphics card caught fire before? And if so, was it an EVGA card?
chosini dont know my back plate on my ftw+ gets super hot. I mean hot like barely touch it. Since i've been swapping cards lately. I have a corsair 780t with 5 intakes and 2 exhausts over a air conditioned vent. i need to put my inferred gun on it. i wonder what under the heat sink looks like?
