Two months ago, I RMA'd my RTX 2060 because it just died on me after 10 months. I got in touch with EVGA's customer service (lovely people btw) and I shipped my dead card and received a replacement in about a week. Right away the card had issues. Whenever I played any game even on low settings the screen would like spasms and flickers. I made a post about it and serval forum members gave me some tips. I reinstalled drivers and tested it on a different PC and monitor. The problem persisted and I determined that it was because of the GPU. However, because I was focused on school and was tight on cash I kept it since I got used to the minor artifacts. However, now games either won't launch or they will cause my computer to crash. I tried testing the card on UserBenchmark and Furmark and my PC just crashes when it hits the GPU tests. Now I'll have to pay for shipping from Toronto which cost me $60 for base shipping last time. Now I'll have paid an additional $120 on top of my GPU purchase simply because the products were faulty. I wasn't too upset that the original GPU died but I have expectations that the replacement won't have more issues. Sorry for the rant, I'm just annoyed they don't pay for shipping for their errors and overall disappointed in EVGA.

Yeah, that really sucks. A replacement card that is bad should have return shipping covered ....

Best practice with EVGA is to let them know immediately that there was a problem with your replacement. They have, in the past, paid for shipping if a second RMA was needed - one just has to ask.

I am currently going through the exact same issue. Two 2080 GPU's have been RMA'd and died within 48 hours of using them. Code 43 on both. I am so confused how two cards sent to me (of which were in new boxes, not an RMA box) died within the same time frame. The GTX 960 im using currently in between RMA's is working flawlessly.

They probably do check them, but its quicker to assume theyre faulty
