@maniacvvv you welcome (hope my results help someone)

I will be doing the mod to my E758 (I don't want to worry anymore about this) & Screw the warranty
The only problem i run into is, will a single molex be enough to help power all three PCI-E slots on my board? or will i need to go with a 6-pin connector (like the MSI BIG BANG does?) Also is the 3.3v lead necessary or not? (if using the 6-pin it could not be)

Maybe some of you hardcore modders can chime in here and help me out. I will be test dummy on this one. I don't want to have to think twice about how i run my rig. so 4-pin molex (enough)  /  6-pin (will it work or cause damage) I would much rather go for the 6-pin to have the extra power if possible.

What I will Do with My 758 should I decide to Mod it, is the three wires running from the back of the 24 pin to the PCIE http://vr-zone.com/print/...-booster-mod/3101.html :
 and the molex to the 24 pin, here ( the 759 and 760 claim to have beefer traces, so I will only be doing the plug on the 759, if i decide to do that, will watch and wait, before I decide to do either, I think the classies have the capability to pass the power through the traces, not sure about the 758. would be nice if those in the know, that built and deigned the product would share a little information, ( may just decide to avoid the 400 series compleatley and stick with 200 series cards, if there is no forthcoming information. )I don't mind doing the mods, but want to know for sure, it resolves the issue, is the best way to do it, and hopefully, doesn't void the warranties,

+1 same boat here my friend. but here is something to think about. assuming the traces are able to with stand the extra current, is a molex enough, or would a 6-pin be better? The only difference between the 4-way classy and the SR-2 are the dual cpu's. (both 4 way sli capable however the 4way classy has a 4-pin molex while the recently revised SR-2 has a 6-pin... also there are other MB with the 6-pin as well & boards that are not even 4-way sli capable (such as the MSI Big Bang) mentioned above.
 
Another thing to think about my friend is that the issue seam to be drawing to much from the 24-pin connector. why would you run leads from the PCI-E slots to the 24-pin then to a molex? (IMO i would think you would want to keep them off the 24-pin all together) and just run the leads from the PCI-E slots to a well placed molex/6-pin.

I have dealt with ASUS in the past and they have the worst customer service next to that of Samsung. That is why I no longer personally recommend either brand to anyone. Maybe in the USA their service is better but not in Europe in my personal opinion.

all i know is i have had enough of this BS. no one can say for sure that my e758 board would fry anything if i run 3 way sli 480's. even the upgrades to my board look shady at this point. Im with falcon on this one. time to jump ship and go asus. seam to have less issues and have the molex connectors for piece of mind. I keep running evga gpus, but MB's not anymore. sorry guys but this issue has not been resolved and if i cant run the latest gpus on my board without fear of these issues then it's not worth it. even jacob nor EVGA can confirm anything or even reassure me that i will be fine.
 
(Will my e758 handle 3 way sli 480's without having to worry about my rig catching fire...ect.) you know what i mean guys.

a replacement to what may i ask? the e758 board was out before the 400 series. i really dont think evga will do anything in that aspect. the 4 way classy is nice however i put alot of work ito my custom haf 932 and the 4 way is not meant for my case. the only option left is the classy3. i really hate the red and black scheme, but i guess the rampage is no better... what to do, what to do.

 
They also seem to be offering todo the molex mod for people, so maybe you could just get that done. At least that way it should theoretically still be under warranty? Dunno... check with EVGA in that regards.
 
Look at it this way, the only board that'll work your situation from ASUS then is the Rex 3, as none of the lower level ASUS boards have the molex connector - including the X58 Sabertooth, which only came out recently! Unless the P6T7 would fit in your case, Falcon would know that.
 
For me personally, I love the slot layout of the Classified and it was the reason why I got one in the first place. Being able to run 3-way SLI + PhysX + Sound is awesome.

i7 4930k - 32gb 1866 DDR3 - ASRock X79 Extreme 11 - 2 x GTX 780 3GB - Corsair AX1200 PSU - Xigmatek Elysium case - 3 x 1920x1200 monitors - 1 x 1080p 50" 3D Plasma

ok  CraptacularOne just confirmed he running 3 GTX480s in the e758 right now. And haven't had a single problem.
 
what a relief.
 
Also sengutso stated - the trick not to get ur 24 pin power supply burn is not to overvolt ur gtx 480 too high. stay within 1.075v on vcore and u should be good to go. now if ur mobo has the molex connector for the gpu like the classified 3 or rampage 3 extreme or formula then u can overvolt ur gtx 480 as high as u want just make sure u have sufficient psu.
 
Jacob has also confirm for me that i will be fine running 3 way sli with 480 SC.

@Afterburner
 
What about all his other stuff? all the money for shipping? What about the hours and hours and hours of hard work, testing and struggle? So its OK for all those companies to RMA (that did), even though it's EVGA's fault?
 
Donata is just a really nice guy, with enough money to let it slide....
 
Lets just be clear, His defective EVGA motherboard cost him how much out for pocket? $1000/$2000?  and weeks of headaches to no end...
 
And they gave him a motherboard that cost EVGA $150?
 
Wow, what an awesome company!! What great and caring service!!!
 
I suppose if I (or someone else) dies in a fire caused by this defect, EVGA will send $20 worth of flowers...
 
EVGA has "earned" whats coming to them..  greedy, dishonest, cheapskate crooks.
 
I'm quite sure that 98% of EVGA staff and Mods are good people.
Too bad they were NOT the ones who made the decision a year ago, when the techs came back with the testing results... to keep quiet and continue selling defective products, just to protect their bonus checks...
And the most disgusting part, they are STILL doing it -today- 
 
EVGA just suckered me for $700 of videocards I cannot run as intended....
Thank god I ran across this thread when I was putting in my new PSU.
-->I am quite sure that if I ran my cards as I had planned, my motherboard would have fried 
 
Thank you Donata
 
I will be looking after you when I'm dealing with EVGA

Not sure why your coming at me with this, in this fashion. I simply cleared up a point for accuracy. And if you think for a second that I am taking sides on this your dead wrong. I spend at least $10k a year on this hobby and absolutely have no tolerance for negligence.
 
Not to mention that I know Donta quite well. Just ask him.

Then you agree?
 
Why should EVGA not be responsible for this?
Everyone who does not work for EVGA (and is under orders to keep their mouth shut)....
Knows exactlly what the defect in these motherboards is, that causing this issue.
 
That EVGA refuses to be honest about it, is the part that is making me so angry.
 
I am sitting here with a 760 and $1000 worth of upgrades I am unable to use, as they were sold to me.
 
You have no idea how upsetting that is.
 
Since it seems to be no big deal to you and you spend so much on parts...
Please send me $700 and I'll send you my brand new cards...
Then I can buy a non-defective motherboard and a single 470
 
The saddest part is, if only EVGA had been honest about this... I would have bought a Classy3 and a 480, and given my 760 to someone who would run it below meltdown. The 760 is a great board, it just cant run high voltage cards. 
 
But EVGA lied to me and many many others, about my motherboard... I never had that chance. 
 
And EVGA is still selling and promoting these motherboards and videocards -->today, right now<--...
Even though they KNOW its a damn lie that these boards can run out of spec high voltage videocards, they cannot.
And EVGA does not care about the fire hazard or expensive components their defective motherboards burn up when they fail... with users who had no idea there was an issue. Remember, EVGA is marketing these boards and cards as "Enthusiast" class overclocking products -at top dollar- without restrictions, disclaimers or disclosure. 
And EVGA is not, has not and will not be warning anyone about this defect, they just want to make money....
 
 *unethical ( adjective)

immoral, wrong, improper, illegal, dirty, unfair, shady, dishonest, unscrupulous, under-the-table, unprofessional, disreputable, underhand, unprincipled, dishonourable,
 
That sums up EVGA's conduct over the defect in their motherboards, which they have known about for over a year.

I do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth. I stand by what I typed. I have more than earned my right to spend what I want how I want and not a single person can tell me otherwise.
 
If in fact there is or will be an issue, I am 100% confident that EVGA will stand by their product and do what they always have done and it is the very same reason many of us are here now.
 
My how short folks memories can get.
 
One other thing. Just as a way of helping. Remember the Consumer Reports "Report" (I think it was them) that showed the 1970's Chevy pickup exploding on impact? And many years later they truth came out and they found the filming was rigged? But Chevy took the hit in sales and PR, settled lawsuits, and replaced trucks anyway???? One example of crying and screaming, but how interesting it is that Ford/Toyota and many other manufactures had Fuel tanks on the side and had no issues.. hmmmm. In fact, my 2010 F150 has a HUGE tank on the same side to this day.
 
Or how Ford blamed Firestone for accidents. There are countless examples of really bad situations, and companies making it right.
 
It does not take a fire or a death for companies to take responsibilities for their product. It does however take a defective product in order for a company to have something needing to be replaced in that manner. So lets continue to collect data, not emotions or false dramatizations, and see where the chips end up.

^ I agree with Afterburner. We need to put the tinfoil hats down, and step away. EVGA is not out to get anyone, and NOBODY wants these failures to happen, and yes, that includes EVGA.
 
And just so you know, I have been through a very similar situation as this problem, only with AMD boards. I had THIS happen, only to find that it was a rather common issue, therefore, to escape MSI, I had to move to Intel. But before I moved, I was scared to death that it would happen again, so I can honestly say, I know how some of you feel.
 
Let's face it, anyone could be blamed for these. So instead of blaming, we should just collect info, and continue to ask (but not harass) EVGA about the issue, and a possible solution.
 
Now, I know I don't have an X58 board, and I only asked a couple of questions on this thread, so I can't really contribute anything here. It's just that I hate to see people posting angry and hurtful comments without thinking through.

Hmm, so many posts to go over I apologize if I missed it. Is this occurring with cards at stock speeds, or overclocked? - Not referring to SC, I mean OC'd past factory settings. Just wondering.

Hmm, so many posts to go over I apologize if I missed it. Is this occurring with cards at stock speeds, or overclocked? - Not referring to SC, I mean OC'd past factory settings. Just wondering.

 
Depends on how many cards. A single overclocked 480 should be ok, 2 overclocked and highly volted however may be pushing it.
 
FWIW, I've overclocked my 2 480s to 900/2200 with maxed out voltages in Afterburner, with no issues on my E759 Classified. I'm also running a 9800GT for PhysX. I put my hand on the connector while Furmark was running and it was cool to the touch. I'm using a Corsair HX1000 PSU.
 
I suppose that's the irritating thing about this problem, you may be lucky like me and never have a problem, or you may not be... it's only by collecting more data about it we can try and solve it.
 
If you want to be sure, try and get a Classified 3 as a replacement (maybe a step up?). Or send it back to EVGA so they can do the molex mod to your current board.

Re:EVGA X58 759 Classifed Limited Edition #551 down... going to get an ASUS....=/ 2010/10/27 23:02:56 (permalink)
i still don't see why your so quick to jump on EVGA, EVGA designed boards to run on a indistury standard spec, namley 300 watts, the 480 is listed by Nvidia,as needing a 6 pin, a 8 pin and power from the PCIE slot ( 75W+150W,+ 75W =300Watts. ) Nvidia quotes the cards Max draw at 250W see http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gtx_480_us.html 
If you can get your 480 to run at Nvidia specs, or below, you should be fine, the problem is many sites say that the Nvidia speck is a lie. http://tech.icrontic.com/news/nvidia-geforce-gtx-400-series-official-today/
 I do not know if you want to belive 250Watts, or 480 watts, but on a circuit designed for 300 watts, I would say EVGA gave plenty of head room for a 250 watt demand, that they were told to design for. Now you choose to Blame EVGA for failing to not trust Nvidia information, when NVIDIA, was the one that exceeded the ATX specification, and EVGA just desined a board to meet what they were told. what we are doing is trying to push 400 watts through a 300 watt hole, and the rusult is heat, the mod, just makes the hole bigger, and shifts the power to the traces, by passing some of what goes through the 24 pinn connector, Thankfully the classified has " Beefier traces " not sure what those with a 758 have. or other manf board can do, they may have to go to the PCIe slot with an alternate mod.  http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=226942
all I can see that you can ligatmently blame EVGA for, is not realizing that the standards were not the standards, the rules, were not the rules, and the spec, is not the spec. 
 
On one hand it's sad, that many of us just found out about this, but on the other hand, the boards are doing what they were designed to do, and that is to meet a specification, that wasn't followed.
 
EVGA is in a precarious place in that they sale, the re-branded Nvidia product, but they did not design it, and are at the mercy of Nvidia, as to what is provided. ( Or at least this is how I see this )
 
Now the next step is to find a fix , not scream fault, fowl, or fire. I see EVGA as a victom in this as well. allbeit, they probably knew before we did.
 
For now the three choices are
Find a board that handles more power,
Find a card that demands less power,
or find a way to make the board and cards supply and demand match.

Truer words have not been spoken! If people really want to break out the pitchforks and torches, then maybe they should go pay NVIDIA and AMD a visit...

Collecting data?
 
And just how many months are we supposed to do this... 12-16?
 
After well over a year of "collecting" EVGA has NOTHING to say?
 
So I'm just supposed to crank it up and "hope" for the best?
 
And if my PSU, CPU, MEM (about $900) burn up, then EVGA will just give me a new motherboard? All the rest of my parts the EVGA defect takes with it are "my" responsiblity..your joking right?
 
You really have no idea how hard it was for me to save up for my upgrade... like eating only once a day for a year, turning off the heater all last winter.. etc.
 
I do not have the funds to replace anything, without it taking months to do so for even a single expensive component.
 
So I'm supposed to just sit here with everything at stock.......
 
EVGA can GTH, they know damn well what the issues are, what is causing it and how to fix it.... they just dont want to pay for it.
 
EVGA just wants this to "go away" and they might have gotten away with it... too bad for them the X68 was delayed, and more and more people are upgrading into the higher voltage cards causing more failures with these boards.
 
Thank God I was lucky enough to see Donata's post before I was ready to complete my upgrades...
 
And EVGA are STILL not warning anyone of this issue, and continue to sell these parts as compatible, overclockable and without known issues.
 
What part of lying, do you not understand?
 
EVGA sold me a $400 motherboard and $700 worth of videocards... They said it would work correctly and overclock safely and that they would work together without any known issues...
That is false, misleading and incorrect..
Doing so "can" lead to --->burning, melting and component destruction.
 
Not on my expensive system. EVGA is nuts thinking that everyone is rich and stupid.
 
I am neither...
and I will personally see that EVGA gets its outright lies shoved into its face, until it starts being responsible or is out of business.
 
I really dont give a damn whos fault it is, it certainly is not mine. I paid full retail to EVGA for my motherboard and videocards, it is EVGA's responsiblity to ME to make this right. If its someone elses fault, then EVGA can take it up with them, its NOT MY PROBLEM.

First of all you have no clue what your talking about like 95% of the people trolling this post. BOTH of my e760 boards and PSUs melted at stock speeds and voltages with 2 GTX 480s.
 
Second, I was very angry but in the end EVGA took care of me. They initially offered me the e762 which would not fit into my tiny corsair 800D case. I was then offered the classified 3 board which I accepted and it is running flawless with 3 GTX 480s and there is no sign of melting pins.
 
Third, this talk about a lessor or downgrade when going from a e759 to the Classy 3 is nothing more than a bunch of BS. The NF200 bridge only allows 2 cards, in a 3 card configuration, to share x16 lanes (16/2 is 8 each). The bridge itself communicates to the x58 at x16 and since we all know the x58 can only handle x36 PCIe lanes then we all know you are not getting true x16/x16/x16 right? good.  The fact is as shown on many review sites is the NF200 does nothing to improve performance and in most cases, is out performed by a x16/x8/x8 board. Need proof?  go research.
 
I am satisfied in what EVGA has done for me and I am positive anyone else who is facing this issue will be taken care of like I was but I think it is time this post got locked.

Sorry how am I trolling exactly? If stating my experiences is trolling then yes, I'm trolling :-\
 
I'm sorry that you had this problem but like I said, it happens to some and doesn't happen to others.
 
EVGA_JacobF for example ran 3 x 480 on an E759 Classified with no issues. So is he trolling too then?
 
The person asked a question so I offered my feedback based on what I've read in this thread. If that's considered trolling then what isn't trolling?

When so many users of these boards have NO IDEA they are at risk?
 
The only reason many peoples rigs are not a smoking ruin right now, is that they saw this (or other posts) about this subject.
 
And the only reason I am not at EVGA's front office door demanding a total refund... is that this post is here, and it very probably saved my system.
 
If were not for Donata's post, I would quite possibly be expolsive and ballistic over this issue...

I feel this thread has gone on its course back and forth and that all applicable points have been covered. During the course of this thread there have been insults and trolling. I am locking it down. If anyone disagrees with the locking of this thread contact the webmaster.
