Will EVGA explain what are the real issues behind:
 
3080 FTW3 Ultra stopped working, 1 single red light and FTW3 Ultra Shutting down PC
 
I think its only fair to current and future owners to know why is this happening.
 
Please!

    I think several places have said the 750GA has issues with the 3000 series. Specific to the 750GA line of PSUs.

    There are several people with different brands and wattage PSU’s having their cards dying (red light). EVGA should be the one giving definite answer since they are asking to RMA cards without questions, they already know what that is and it shouldn’t be a secret, unless there is more serious damage done to the card and they don't want panic anyone, unfortunately We can only guess and that is not good enough, It shouldn't be good enough to all users

    Pitching in here as the owner of a 3090 that was used with stock settings that is on its way for RMA after a single black screen with no video output afterwards. In my case, I highly doubt it was my psu (thermaltake 850w). Prior to the 3090, I used to run an OC'd Aorus Xtreme 2080ti which neared stock 3080 TDP (which is 30W less than stock 3090 tdp) with zero issues for 4 months. I do realize the 3000 series are known to cause transient power spikes but I still doubt my psu was the culprit because when I got the blackscreen, the protection on the psu did not trip and my PC never shut down. I had to manually shut down my PC. After ~10 hours of troubleshooting, I swapped my old 1070 and my PC is up and running flawlessly with zero issues since for 2 days now.

    Shutting down is a PSU design problem.
     
    Some models of PSUs can't handle transient power spikes. (Also happened with the 1080Ti and 2080Ti and Vega 64)
     
    Transient power spikes can easily be twice the normal measured load wattage, however they are only microseconds long.
     
    The PSU design issue is on the secondary side of the PSU. It has to do with the cap size and or how the caps are used. If they can't handle the trainset power spikes the PSU will just simply shut down.
     
    PSU wattage has nothing to do with it, a 750W or 850W PSU is plenty normally.
     
    It's always good to take a PSU very seriously and research before buying. It is the most important part of the PC. Getting a good high quality PSU is paramount with the high end GPUs.

    And that's why I believe EVGA should at least let people know what is up, you paying $1800 and you want your card to last for a while. Even if you get 10 years warranty, it would be a half useless if you have to pull the card out of your system every so often just send it for RMA.
     
    I know EVGA has one of the best group of team mates with great Customer Support and that will be accounted if they shine bright light on this issue.
    It’s only fair to ask for explanation, it shouldn’t be a secret.
     
    My nephew received 3090 last Friday or something like that and following Monday card died (Red Light) He was not a happy man and still waiting for the card and no one gives him explanation to what was wrong..
     
    Come on EVGA, make an extra step and let the cat out of the bag.

    For the sake of argument, lest say Its PSU issue when comes to reboots (I highly doubt), there is a bigger issue with dying one after another

    Could just be a bad batch of GPUs, it happens sometimes and not just with GPUs either.
     
    Who knows, I am sure they will figure it out.
     
    Thankfully for those who are effected EVGA has an excellent warranty and Customer service. 
     
    The good thing is that's it's happening this soon so they can solve it quicker.

    Where do you see that? What % of 3080 evga users are failing? Most people won't even come to the forums unless there is a problem.

    This is confirmation bias through and through. Find me an electronic product especially one that uses as much power and handles as much heat as a gpu that doesn't have some % of failures. That's just reality man.

    There is clearly an issue involving the power-plug system on the GPUs going bad, I think it's one particular batch of both 3080s & 3090s, there is a consistent amount of reports... again, forums numbers are exaggerated because the majority of people "Happy with their card" aren't going to post about it, but there are several users here that have had this "red light" issue with AMPLE PSUs. 
    There are also a lot of people that have had/are having issues that are CLEARLY the PSU being inadequate, which is making the issue harder to dictate which is the problem.
    I can tell you, almost everyone that has posted about the "red light" issue, and has said they contacted eVGA, have setup an RMA & proceeded to start the RMA process, which eVGA suggested without hesitation, so they know this is an issue with at least a small percentage of 3080s & 3090s both, in the FTW3 Ultra range at the very least.
    That's why I think it's a bad batch & they know there's a bad batch out there. 
    Some people are experiencing this when the card is basically brand new, some after a few weeks.
    If I had to guess, it's an issue with a batch of PCBs that had inadequate tracing for the power systems on the GPU & after some use, or right away, it's going "C YA" and red lighting.
    Just a guess though.
    Contact Customer Service & get an RMA setup, it's really that simple.  You'll be amazed at how friendly & fast eVGA's RMA department is, one person that had this issue said they sent their card in & received a new card within 10 days of sending the old one in, which is a pretty fast turn around considering how slow mail in general is moving at the moment due to the Rona.
     
    Edit: TBF, I got my card from the initial batch of the first "Notify Me" cards, and I have had zero issues with mine.

    Exactly.
     
    People who aren't having an issue and or aren't part of a forum etc aren't going to complain.
     
    I am sure it is a small percentage of cards overall.

    No, they're just going to A: return the card where they bought it from, or B: Do what is says in the box & contact eVGA to get an RMA setup... Which is what everyone should do if they're GPU kicks the bucket & it's from eVGA.
    The people that are getting burnt to a crisp are going to be the ones that bought cards from scalpers, as they aren't even guaranteed to qualify for RMA, thought most of the time now the "second owner" qualifies under eVGA's warranty, but they have to purchase extended warranty first as far as I know, but that part I could be wrong on, I don't routinely purchase GPUs second hand (anymore).

    Your PSU isn't the issue. I have both the HX 850W and HXI 850W and they both work fine with the 3000 series.

    Exactly.
     
    People who aren't having an issue and or aren't part of a forum etc aren't going to complain.
     
    I am sure it is a small percentage of cards overall.




    No, they're just going to A: return the card where they bought it from, or B: Do what is says in the box & contact eVGA to get an RMA setup... Which is what everyone should do if they're GPU kicks the bucket & it's from eVGA.
    The people that are getting burnt to a crisp are going to be the ones that bought cards from scalpers, as they aren't even guaranteed to qualify for RMA, thought most of the time now the "second owner" qualifies under eVGA's warranty, but they have to purchase extended warranty first as far as I know, but that part I could be wrong on, I don't routinely purchase GPUs second hand (anymore).




     
    Then there are the ones who just love to tell the whole world about their issues.... Or just like to complain about everything..... Plenty of them out there.

    Im just saying, there arent many people with EVGA 3080s out there... look at newegg, the reviews are under 100, Amazon? 2.... Safe to say there is only a few thousands EVGA 3080 Cards out there, if you think about it and we there is many people people here bringing up issues... its a lot..

    For dead cards, just a small handful, here.
     
    And there are a lot of 3080's and 3090's out there already.
     
    More than just a few thousand world wide.
     
    Forums are a very small part of the internet and user base.

    Its the Fuses on the graphics card blowing.
    GN did a mention on one of his videos when he was asked why he soldered over them.

    That was because of the unlimited power VBIOS he was using, 900W....

    Ill try quote his words as accurate as I can remember but cant find the link to the video, It was in a live stream.
    Question was why he soldered blobs next to the shunts.
    His reply was it was non-related to shunt modding since they were trouble shooting a red light problem with EVGA when they got the card before modding it.

    I don't think this is unexpected with such brand new, heavily power-driven cards. Not saying it doesn't suck for those affected, but at least you can be reasonably sure that EVGA will take care of you- not so much with some other brands I could mention. The problems will get back to the manufacturers and the weak points will be sorted out over time, just like they always do.

    It would not be surprised if this issue was caused by blown fuses on the cards.

    You're taking anecdotal evidence to think there's a wide spread problem.
     
    A lot more people have the cards than are complaining about it.
     
    Not to mention if you have a crap PSU that also contributes.

    I don’t know what is causing this, but wanted to reiterate what jankerson said about getting a good PSU. As voltages drop in CPUs and GPUs, power gets to be more and more of an issue. Motherboards and graphics cards have power stages but the cleaner the power they get, the cleaner power these chips get, and the faster they can run. Cheap supplies really have no place in high performance applications.
     
    EVGA wanting to rma cards is their only way to get “failed” cards to test. It’s normal and important to know if those cards meet specs, if part failures were induced, etc. It’s important to know even if returned cards are fine.

    I had an 850 watt GA with a 3080 FE that was causing my system to reboot when under load.. replaced PSU witha Corsair 850 and it solved my problem... It's confirmed that the GA PSU's cant handle 3080's.

    I believe issues that needs explanation are more the cases where the gpu won't come back at all after a reboot, regardless of testing in a different system/with larger PSU, thus making the whole point about PSUs pretty moot here ... We all know a good PSU is required for those cards, and stability issues can indeed lead to question that component, but the real question being asked here is about so many cards crapping out after hours/days/weeks of regular use when they're supposed to be overclocking beasts, and what happen in a few years when we start needing this overclocking headroom ? I know DOA exists in the industry, it's usually exactly that : Dead On Arrival, not after a random amount of time ... that tends to get customers think there may be some QE issues (mine is pending rma approval after it lasted exactly 5hours, others lasted days or weeks before showing similar symptoms ...) 
    Those QE issues may or may not not be evga's, we don't and won't know for sure, but we still can ask them to try and communicate about it since that's part of what people seem to love evga for (new customer here, but came to evga because friends kept telling me how good they were with service and community ...), as it would also avoid (both potential and existing) customers to feed their own FUD based on lack of information

    Just chiming in here. I understand the frustration as I too is having random reboot issues with my card under light load / no load. The issue is difficult reproduce since its mostly random..on very light load such as watching twitch or if I left the pc on overnight in idle. Regardless, I trust that EVGA will work with their customer since they respond much quicker than other vendors. This is my 4th product with them over the past 5 years and did not have any issues prior to now.

    Same issue with basically brand new 3090 FTW3 Ultra.  Blank screen while gaming without computer rebooting; game still running in background with audio etc.   -> no video output, not even while posting BIOS.  Single red light on board.  Don't think it's my PSU as I have more than enough overhead.  Corsair AX1500i, with 3 separate power cables directly connected to PSU.  EVGA customer service was great and initiated RMA process right after I called describing the issue.  Swapped back to my 2080ti in the meantime.
