Somebody at EVGA needs to double check the specs on the GTX 1080 SC ICX page.  It says 8 GB of DDR5 at 8000 Mhz, instead of GDDR5X at 10000 Mhz.

Can someone please clarify, this is not available to the 1070 Black Edition?  I was very excited to see about the upgrade program and I see that just about every ACX 3.0 card is on the list BUT the Black Edition.  I hope it's just a mistake because I don't see why the card wouldn't be eligible since it does have the ACX 3.0 cooler just without the backplate.  Can we still upgrade?  Even if we need to pay a small premium?  Thanks.

Important Question
 
Will the existing PCB's (card) simply be swapped with the new cooler.
 
Or is the PCB changing? Will my EK waterblock still fit?
 
Will I get the same PCB (card) back, with just the new cooler.
 
Or will it be an entire new card I get?
 
If it's entire new cards going out (new PCB's too) what is EVGA doing with the old ones?

Fully redesigned PCB.  Not sure about EKWB fitting.  I would take a good picture of the PCB when you get it, and send it to EKWB for reference and see what they think.

What would be better is a picture of the PCB from EVGA so that I can check with EK before I decide whether to upgrade or not?

If evga has a direct overhead picture of the bare PCB, there is a possibility they can do a visual with the waterblock. The hard part would be guaging the height of the new components to guarantee they wont hit.

Was compatibility with waterblocks considered (taken into account) when the EVGA team were re-designing the PCB?

Thanks @Scarlet-Tech
 
On another note, Pandora's Box is open once again. Since this thread was started, I see that four other sub-threads have been created by various users. Is there a way to merge them all? I'm not trying to be a jerk, but can't we all ask and post here, rather than cluttering up the main page with new questions/comments threads about something already stickied? 
Regards

Would it be possible for EVGA to provide a detailed picture of the new PCB so water-cooling users can check if the new design will be compatible with their water-block?
 
It would help them make a decision whether to upgrade or not?

$100 is steep for my GTX 1060 FTW+ like more than 1/3rd the cost. I still applied though as the new cool design seems better for my HTPC use. I guess I wish is was a bit less for the lower end cards.

For existing ACX 3.0 owners, we also have a $99 upgrade program, details here http://www.evga.com/icxupgrade/ 

 
If a owner has purchased an extended warranty on a ACX 3.0 card, will the extended warranty transfer to the upgrade ICX card?
 
If the ACX card fails and is covered by the extended warranty, will the owner get a ACX 3.0 card as a replacement or will the replacement be an ICX card?

Graphics Card: EVGA GTX1080 FTW  Monitors: Acer XB270HU, Dell WFP2407

The extended wareanty i can not 100% say for sure, as i do not work for evga, but i would suspect it transfers over .

You would definitely get the icx, as they would charge you for an upgrade, and later downgrade you. If they were forced to, i would think they would make up for it somehow.

I'm still stuck at "pending" and "upgrade request received". How are you already in queue? I processed my request in 10:30 AM this morning. 
Did I miss something or did I just misunderstand your post?

Thanks for killing the resale value on ACX 3.0 cards. Been building PCs for almost 20 years. Loyal EVGA guy who paid $20 over the competition, that had a legit cooling solution, and now I have to consider spending $100 after being a thermal beta tester because you release a PR-driven rehash of the same cards, that will absolutely tank the resale value on ACX 3.0 cards?
 
What should have happened is you should have upped the warranty, and gone into PR mode. You recycled the incomplete thermal solution from ACX 2.0 in an age when various component temps were becoming an issue. Then you bone ACX 3.0 buyers a second time by hurting their resale value. Absolutely incredible. 
 
Nobody should be okay with this, let alone celebrating putting patents on things to stop other OEMs from making safer products for their customers.

So either pay the $99 to get what should have been built in the first place, or keep the defective card that is worth even less now. Thanks, EVGA. Last product I will buy from you.

 Thanks, EVGA. Last product I will buy from you.



I won't go that far. But I will be loyal to my wallet, over EVGA. Which is what I should have done all along. Then I wouldnt have had to preform surgery on something I purchased, only to be boned a second time a few months later. I am absolutely gobsmacked by this move.
 
So if in the future EVGA has the best product for the best price, I will buy it. But I won't feel good about it. Why the hell was I loyal to a company anyhow? It's a ridiculous concept that I am embarrassed to admit to. Be loyal to your wallet. I guess this is EVGA being loyal to theirs.

I followed the instructions on the main site. I then received my confirmation email about how EVGA will be in contact with me for my new Icx GPU and additional options such as shipping etc.

It also states first come first serve so there is a que. When EVGA tells me where I'm at I'll go from there. If there is some misconception about the que I didn't realize there was a place to check. Like I said I received a confirmation email which is a que spot.

Any estimate on when these new cards will hit retailers?

I won't go that far. But I will be loyal to my wallet, over EVGA. Which is what I should have done all along. Then I wouldnt have had to preform surgery on something I purchased, only to be boned a second time a few months later. I am absolutely gobsmacked by this move.
 
So if in the future EVGA has the best product for the best price, I will buy it. But I won't feel good about it. Why the hell was I loyal to a company anyhow? It's a ridiculous concept that I am embarrassed to admit to. Be loyal to your wallet. I guess this is EVGA being loyal to theirs.

So either pay the $99 to get what should have been built in the first place, or keep the defective card that is worth even less now. Thanks, EVGA. Last product I will buy from you.




 
If you got the updated firmware your good. If you installed the thermal pads your extra good. You dont have to spend the $100 to get ICX and your card works fine. They choose to launch ICX after learning from ACX 3.0. Not doing this would be like putting the Note 7 back on the market after being fixed again (to a lesser extent). Who would buy that with the bad press? I mean they could have not done this but I see it as the smart thing to do. Also EVGA is on the shelves of normal retail places like Best Buy. They need to put confidence back into their resellers. I assume now theyll sell out of the ACX 3.0 and only sell the ICX. Stuff like this doesnt happen often, especially for EVGA. I for one think they handled it well and better than other companies have in the past.

Thanks for killing the resale value on ACX 3.0 cards. Been building PCs for almost 20 years. Loyal EVGA guy who paid $20 over the competition, that had a legit cooling solution, and now I have to consider spending $100 after being a thermal beta tester because you release a PR-driven rehash of the same cards, that will absolutely tank the resale value on ACX 3.0 cards?
 
What should have happened is you should have upped the warranty, and gone into PR mode. You recycled the incomplete thermal solution from ACX 2.0 in an age when various component temps were becoming an issue. Then you bone ACX 3.0 buyers a second time by hurting their resale value. Absolutely incredible. 
 
Nobody should be okay with this, let alone celebrating putting patents on things to stop other OEMs from making safer products for their customers.




 
Its not like other companies dont reuse coolers without issue has happened a number of times in recent years. Also with companies cheaping out on the AMD side of things (that do both) when those cards actually ten to run hotter.
 
They design something they get to patent it. They could allow other companies to use it well still retaining the rights. It is however an advantage over the competition. The competition will just have to develop something similiar just like whats happened in the past with motherboards and GPU's. Not too long ago ASUS was the only one that didnt have hand soldered cards not most are nearly fully machine soldered. Its like MSI's NVMe heatsink/shield as much as it doesnt work no one else has it or tried it. Was the same with ASUS fan control. Well still the best IMO others have comparable tech. The same will happen here.
 
Also you probably better off not spending the $100 as you not going to make that back at resale even on a 1080, much less a lower card.
