L_T33Don't leave that thing unattended!
SladeXI have been following the threads closely. It was reported on Hardforum. I currently own both the EVGA XC and a Asus Turbo Dual fan 2080 TI so it has been of interest to me. On both my cards, I have measured the temps from the backplate to be in the 105-112F range in those affected areas while the GPU area has been around the 122F range which is reported to be 55C by precision x1 and gpu-z.
glenn37216Hey evga..just send out some thermal pads like you did the 1080sc fiasco...problem solved. lmao.
the_Scarlet_onesquall-leonhartthe asus's origin of failure is not in the same location.It’s within an inch and at the same location on the card. That is pretty close for two completely different brand boards.
squall-leonhartthe asus's origin of failure is not in the same location.
squall-leonhart the source is the white point, the black points are just plastic smoke. Different locations.
squall-leonhartAh, yeah sorry, matter of perspective on the cards being from different angles.
MuXuSSLearn how to manage your temps with Precision x1, even if it still in beta...definitively not for kids this device!! RIP human brain
santa_ryanMay very well be current overflow from a chip getting too hot and destroying itself, and taking everything along with it in a dead short. The burned area is I believe part of the power supply circuitry for RAM.
squall-leonhart its not.
Quad5NyThere was probably a loose solder ball (or other metal) and that shorted out L64 and also L65 blew.Pic's of a good PCB here:
jdelcidThis just happened to me on the same spot and it looks like the same thing. Isolated or not, DO NOT leave your computer running at your house while your away (i have the RTX 2080ti black edition). I owned an evga 780 for 4 years and always left my computer running to while i was gone. I never had issues. I left this computer by itself before but thank god it decided to burn while i was home. Just be cautious. Also on a note, EVGA costumer service is handling it fine. It just sucks because i cant play for a while and i dont like typing on my phone.
