EVGATech_LeeMGTX 1070 ACX 3.0 and ACX 3.0 SC:08G-P4-517308G-P4-5171
CutholenEVGATech_LeeMGTX 1070 ACX 3.0 and ACX 3.0 SC:08G-P4-517308G-P4-5171you mean 08G-P4-6171-KR08G-P4-6173-KR/KB right?
seahawkgfxCould you give some info on the quality of the pads? How many w/mk do they need?
kacketonCan You tell us what w/mk You recommend? Also thickness of pad directly on mosfets?
EVGATech_LeeMNo minimum W/mK to recommend, generally. As above, make sure you have the right-sized pads. If you're adding an additional pad on top of the MOSFETs, I'd need to know which card you have. Only the 1080 Classified is suggested to have a new pad replace the current one in that region. Otherwise, I could only offer an educated guess.
kacketon[...] I have 1070 FTW 08G-P4-6276-KR and i want to replace original mosfet pad because it doesnt have contact with two mosfets for VRAM VRM. (they have a little bit less height than rest). I think that original pad is 1.5mm. If i use 2mm would that be ok?
EVGATech_LeeMAlternate Backplate Pads (make sure to remove rubber standoffs in the same area you would for the regular Thermal Mod pad):
EVGATech_LeeMGiven that the Classified uses a 1.5mm pad for the same area, I would still probably recommend 1.5mm. As far as 2mm goes, it may make the baseplate a little harder to screw back down, but nothing inherently wrong with the idea. However, after first screwing the baseplate back on, I'd suggest checking the three memory pads on the opposite side of the PWM area relative to the MOSFETS to make sure they're making good contact, since the memory pads should be 1.5mm thick.
dJbLoWI use 1070 FTW. I'm expecting a thermal pad to be in for 4 weeks. Sorry, but if you do not send in the near future, it will be filled with burned cards. What are you still waiting for? Let's open the RMA and return the card. We have been patient for over a month. Now hold your Evga hand quickly and start submissions.We will disassemble the cards and install them again.Thank you!
LUCKSTARi dont buy any evga products again. Evga must be call back all affected cards and refund our money.

adestiny27Is 3.2 w /m.k ok for 08G-P4-6173 - EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC ACX 3.0 ?
DasHaMMeRTomsHardware has a page about the EVGA GTX 1060 SC within this new Roundup : Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card Roundup. March 21, 2017 . by Igor Walossek The author talks about The Cooler and VRMs heating to 120C . INCLUDING INFRARED THERMAL IMAGES. He suggests a simple mod : add thermal heat pass to the "leg" of the HeatPipe just 2.5mm above the row of VRMs. I am thinking of carving a Copper block instead of the Thermal Pads he used, which reduced VRMs Temp by ~8C ! . A Copper heatsink would definitely be betterThan I was wondering if I could create block/s for the memory chips .. Does the Stock card use any Thermal Pads - to worry about replacements ( location ? sizes ? ) Would heating the Pipe at its heat expelling end hinder its performance with regard to the GPU ? I think it needs external Temperature difference. What are the measurements of the Heatpipe pipe ? Width x Height , and maybe the Length for the VRMs row ? I chose this thread as the original poster is an official man "in the know", though his answer would not be regarded official EVGA's. Thanks in advance
