does anyone know if ek full mb cooling blocks for the e760 will fit the new classy 3.damn harder for us with water cooling to fix this if it becomes a problem now i cant leave my pc running when im not home


I'm hoping to have the 770 here by this weekend or early next week.  As soon as I can I will see if the EK block fits on it or not and let you guys know.  I sure hope it does.
 
I'll say it again, and keep saying it...we need official word from EVGA on what is going to be done about this.  I have a 760 board that I can step-up to the 762, but I've been number 1 in the queue for several days now and still no word on that one either.  I have another 760 and the 759 that are not available for step-up, but I want EVGA to fix this.

So I'm about to pull the trigger on the MSI XPower mobo. Looks like a great board, it has military grade components, 2 8 pin for CPU and a 6 pin for the pci lanes. But with all that said the problem I still have is that they only offer a 3 year warranty and tech support is only 6-6 pst. That sucks since I live in Chicago and most of my gaming and benching happens after they close. I don't know what to do! I guess I'll be in a holding pattern till (insert company name here) gives is a fix.

It will fit for sure.  Aside from some caps that were removed and no eSATA on the C3 the layout is exactly the same with the same mounting holes as the E759/E760.  I have the C3 sitting right here beside me but I do not want to unwrap it as it is going back to EVGA.

Anyone know anyone in the Denver, CO area that can do the mod. I don't feel i can/want to do it. AS of now, I have the 770 coming, but if i could do the mod, I would keep my 759 and send them back the 770. PM me if anyone knows anyone. Thanks ahead of time.

Does this only affect multi-rail PSU's? My 24-pin doesn't even get hot period. Always cool to the touch.

Re:EVGA X58 759/760 Classified 24 pin mobo/psu burning up Defect With High Power GPU's 2010/10/14 18:42:48 (permalink)
Just wanted to chime in. I did a test running GPU-Z and E-LEET with Furmark in SLI with my 480GTXs. My current was 58-61.5A on average(one spike to 64). This was after about 2mins run time. My GPUs settled on there temps at 62C though i am sure they would climb a couple more C over the course of 10mins. These cards really run alot cooler then my 280GTXs. My 12v rail drooped to 11.89 under load. I felt the plug with my finger and felt no heat what so ever.. I did feel a nice breeze on my fingers though from a fan in my system.. not sure which fan to be honest.  These numbers are comparable to the after fix numbers of the gentlemen a couple pages back. This maybe a PSU issue? Perhaps the Corsair AX1200 has a better plug/pin quality? I hope this helps some.

It takes a particular kind of setup added to the system one guy already burned the pins on his corsair 1200ax, and many of us have burned though Corsair 1000hx's, as well as other brands of psu's.

So do my values correlate to anything we know? Are these even valid messurements for determining if a system is safe?
 
I called EVGA to get thier scoop. They claim "yes we know about this issue, it happens in 1-2% of users and those 1-2% are very vocal". I dont know about you but this does not make me feel any better...

It is not something that happens right away, you may be fine and not meet the particular hardware setup. Then again a matter of days, weeks or months down the road you may be in the same boat, like if you add more ram, extra hard drives, or a gpu, or a network card. So far EVGA has not commented on what particular setups cause this. The best info we have is those it has happened to, and those who do the mod. All we really know for sure is 2x GTX 480's or more can cause this thats about it at this point. Like my system ran fine for three months until i had the burnup, you dont know at this point if your a canidate until it happens...=/
 
Yeah we are vocal so people know... look at the market for these kinds of setups its very small to begin with. All you have to do is look at that xtremesystems post to know something like this is very real and can happen... its coming from the fingers of Shamino he helped make the board...

Nice  That's not a very nice thing to say, whoever said it.  I would hope that it was nobody that I was dealing with as everyone I dealt with seemed a lot more professional.  Also, pulling % is pulling them out of their rear end.  They really ought to focus on finding the cause not putting down people.
 
On topic, your system seems to be behaving normally.  Just watch it, though honestly, adding a Molex connector or two would not hurt for a piece of mind.  As donta1979 said I too ran my system for about 3-4 months before failure and in that time I did not notice any issues except for the last 1-2 weeks leading up to the failure when I started getting strange BSODs and then no start from cold boot and finally "bam!" the connector went.
 
Edit: How ironic eh that they would say we're vocal and it's "only 1%-2%" yet they just put out a board with a pre-soldered Molex connector on it for additional power to the PCI-E lanes.  I think we can all agree it was not added there for aesthetics or ****s-and-giggles.  That comment was very low, whoever made it.

It was done in a condescending manner clearly, otherwise they would not have said "[it's only 1%-2%, just they are very vocal]".  Anyway, beside the point so let's leave it at that.
 
Thanks for the props!

Well, if what your alleging EVGA said is actually true, then 1%-2% is not enough for a recall.  By the way I am not saying that you are lying, I'm just saying there is no proof of that statement.  Now if we dig a bit into those numbers and assume that EVGA sold 50,000(could be totally off) 758/759/760 mobo's and there is a 1-2% failure rate, then the risk of loss is 500-1000 people.  Total loss would include fire to which I have not heard anyone loosing their house to this issue.  But worse case scenario, total loss of house and belongings with the average home price in the USA being $190,000(per last count), and say, I don't know $50,000-$100,000 in personal property per house.  We can have a number of $120,000,000 up to $290,000,000 loss.  I'm pretty sure that would bankrupt one of my favorite computer companies  Now I did pull the number of mobo's out of my arse and who knows the value of peoples stuff in their house but it sounded reasonable.  Just thought I would take a look at extreme scenarios and see how much loss there would be to the responsible company/companies.  Class action lawsuit on Nvidia, anyone?!? anyone?!? J/K of course.

Actually no I don't know that you know that. You went on and on about EVGA motherboard sales and the impact of 500/1,000 houses burning down then end your post with "Class action lawsuit on Nvidia, anyone?!? anyone?!?"
 
I mean wth, why did you even make the post? You trying to force EVGA to do a recall by slamming them? Why even mention a law suite on nVidia? Basically your post is worthless to this thread.
 
Drats, now I have a worthless post in this thread.

Fair enough, i didnt add any value in your opinion.  I only used those examples because of what another person posted that EVGA said.  I guess my joke at the end missed its mark completley.  I really don't know where you get that I'm slamming EVGA, far from it man read closer and maybe look at all my parts and you will see where my loyalty is.

Add some value now emach. Have you done the molex mod to your E759 mobo? If not, have you had the melted pins on your mobo? If not, when you place your gpu's under stress does the 24-pin connector feel hot?
 
Helps us out here bruv, you seemingly have the combo of components to have this issue, except for you have a single rail psu. I know some cat a few pages back said his AX1200 melted a mobo, but he has never made a thread on it that I can find.
 
I'm like KMoore, I want to know the envelope in which both my E759 and E760 boards will operate safely in. Right now I'm not sure EVGA can even give us that info.

Emach's post does have a valid point, but KMoore does also, and yet, so does EVGA's stance on the matter currently.
 
Could this develop into a massive problem? Possibly...
 
I understand KMoore's point also though as I am in the same boat, if I know a safe config I would make sure to stay in that safe zone until next chipset release.
 
But at the same time EVGA has a valid point, don't think they don't have a decent idea of exactly the main config's that are having this problem. I mean they do handle the RMA's to know for sure. But if EVGA said A, B, and C put together will cause a fire, there is the possibility someone might attempt to stage in a ploy to attempt legal action against EVGA and/or other companies.
 
Having owned NVidia and EVGA products for ages myself and spending thousands every year with EVGA for a long long time. I do trust that they are working on a solution. Now as to if I will like it or not who knows. I have no desires to replace my 759, as there really isn't anything thats a worthwhile replacement for me currently.

@trilogy3337
Dude if you want to keep it and make sure you never hit the ideal setup for meltdown"still have no clue what that is=/", just do the molex mod who knows you might get more stable voltages like some have, cooler running gpus. Plus you dont have to worry about a thing.... TBH I feel a bit cheated getting a Classified 3 w/ a sale price of 369-380 where I spent almost 500+ on my classified 759 w/ shipping stepup shipping and so o. But yeah Thurs of last week I put the info out of this is not just some random thing. With RMA's and so on EVGA should be able to say something...
 
But yes I am taken care of in a sense even though i got a downgrade tbh... I could stop posting and be like forget it. But I dont want alot of you to go though the same crap I have had to, or cannot dish out the extra cash for mass rmaing of parts, or trying out new ones to see if they suffice. Not everyone can do that esp in this economy. So will try to keep this post up to get some type of response from evga instead of a genaric response that leaves many of you scratching your heads and wondering do you have that setup, is your stuff going to go out in a poof of smoke or worse.
 
I would understand for legal reasons, yes other boards from other vendors have this issue. But the post on xtremesystems shows it was known in the classifieds custom construction/engineering pcie lanes beefed up so they would not burn up, just the molex would had been the last piece of the puzzel.... sadly its up to the consumer to add this... I am sure many feel they are getting the blind eye. Of oh whatever it will blow over and be forgotten.

pm jacob and ask someone else was told no it would not, you get the go ahead save the pm/email and have at it. But I feel that not everyone can do the soldering job nor should they have to=/

I talked to them about it (I had to call about a RMA for a different board unrelated to this issue) and the said it was not advised as for an RMA there can not be physical damage. The rep also stated that I "should be fine" as long as I do not overclock my system. Look at my sig and you will see my CPU is definitely overclocked, but I do not overclock GPU's (i hope this means a factory overclock is ok too). I just ordered a corsair ax1200 and plan on getting another 480. When I talked to them they did not seem to have a plan in place and when I asked if special considerations would be made for burnt out boards due to this issue and the basic answer was that you will get the same board. Those with classifieds they might work with, but it seemed to me that others may be faced with buying a new board, so i know I am having a hard time deciding what to do. So as long as it looks like nothing was done you should be ok

Donta, I completely violently agree with you. I remember you stating that your GPU's were @ stock when the meltdown happened. My OC'd 295's are pulling the same/more power than the stock 480s'. So I am in the same boat you are/were. I don't want that classified 3, it's junk compaired to the 759 from my stand point. But I refuse to mod my board, currently I just have the board on a single GPU.

I don't think calling EVGA asking 'what if' and expecting a definitive answer is going to happen. As you can see however from other users posts if something does happen they are handeling it on a case by case basis and trying to work out something that works for both parties.
 
If your looking for a guarantee, in writing, that if XXX happens they will do YYY you not going to do anything but go in circles.
