hi all, sorry for my english
 
my GTX 1070 FTW has already installed this thermal pads ( is it possible that this pad installed in factory ?)
but when i chek my serail number on this site: https://www.evga.com/support/register.asp it says recommended steps to do
my bios version is  86.04.1e.00.70, proposed bios version is  86.04.50.00.72
If this procedure was performed in the factory ( thermal mod) , why does not have this card new bios
 
 


More than likely it is just a bios update in general, and the current bios isn’t going to hurt anything. Bios updates happen for numerous reasons.

Those look the same as the pads that were sent out by EVGA.

Did you purchase the card brand new or from someone else? If you bought it from someone else, they may have added the pads themselves and it should be fine. If it is new, then they probably applied the pads and it just didn’t get updated in the system.

As long as there is a bad installed, there shouldn’t be anything to worry about. The pads EVGA sent out initially were not a super expensive pad, so it shouldn’t hurt to just keep the one that is already installed where it is. You could still ask, but I doubt it will make very much difference.

Hi all - I've come to this forum out of necessity after hearing about the thermal issue and need for updated bios.
My 1070 was purchased prior to the updated bios & thermal pad upgrade and burst into flames. Yes, Flames. Taking my motherboard with it.
So my question is: Was this upgrade something that any of you were contacted by EVGA via your GTX1070 registration or was it only available if you looked for it here?
 
Thanks!

The bios update & thermal pads wouldn't have stopped your card from bursting into flames.

I have just bought a brand new 1070 ft 2 days ago. Is the thermal pad still an issue or have evga put the correct pads in after the problems was raised? I don't want to open up my card just to check if possible

You wouldn’t need to open the card, you can just look from the side and see them.

“Brand new” 3 years after the issue started is a little hard to believe. Is it brand new to you, or actually brand new with full 3 year warranty from EVGA? Most of the possibility will depend on the actual card, as the thermal pads were set to be replaced a couple of years ago.

You should contact EVGA customer support and have them verify the serial number, and they can tell you more about the card as well as the status of the thermal pads.

Re: How to apply the Thermal Pads for the 1070/1080 Cards 2020/10/06 04:37:41 (permalink)
I got to tell ya, having a huge CPU cooler and an ITX motherboard is scary for overclocking. Thankful for the Temp sensors. Was getting degradation in performance over time and though my temps were in the 80s C, both CPU and GPU in hardware monitor, I didn't think too much about it. Then I remembered that it has other sensors so I pulled up the temp sensors, and my jaw hit the floor. The main die temp sensor was reading 82C, but the back of the GPU temp was 96C. This was insane so I first ordered a GPU stand and PCIe extension. And this helped my temps a lot. CPU would spike in the 70s C, but be in the high 60s C with a load. The GPU was amazingly now never going over 65C but was still unstable. Had never taken a GPU apart yet have replaced the thermal paste on my CPU many times so I figured I would try it on the GPU. I got it apart, cleaned the old paste off, and put the new paste on fearful it would never boot again. And it booted, better than new. Able to OC my GPU much higher than before and very stable. Good thermal paste for the win!!

Re: How to apply the Thermal Pads for the 1070/1080 Cards 2020/11/24 02:36:29 (permalink)
hey, @the_Scarlet_one , just to be clear I don't have to do this if I bought my 1070 FTW2 recently, right?

Because I did check with my SN, however I can only find the checking process on the American site and I bought my card in Europe, also yet again there is no feedback when I input my SN... so all I can do is "assume" I don't need the thermal pads, but you know what they say about that.

Well, I don't have an issue with temps per say, though I find it a bit suspicious how far I have to crank up the fans compared to my previous gpu.

I get 49C which is ok, at 60-70 % fan speed at ~97% usage, which is, loud...


Tldr: is there a way to check this without opening up the card and does the American evga site have the data for cards sold in Europe or do you have a link where I could check (I know they say "sold after..." but for all I know this card could have been sitting in a warehouse for years before I bought it...)

Nope you shouldn’t have to worry about this with the FTW2.

ok, thanks, I was really worried about this prior buying this card because I read all kinds of stuff on reddit... info seems to have been wrong tho, and yeah, temps seem to be obviously very good on my card. :o

I can't get them to respond to my ticket. I've asked them if they still deliver these pads or not because I plan to re-paste my GTX1070 AC3 and should put those pads in. I've heard that pads they send have subpar thermal conductivity (<2 W/mK) so buying my own might be safe solution.

You can buy your own, and currently EVGA is going to be closed during the Christmas break.

The 2W/mK Doesn’t mean much, as long as the pads are in good condition. I have tried the 6, 11, and 17 w/mK pads, and they all performed exactly the same from what I could tell. In the end, the only noticeable difference was that the extremely expensive ultra high performance pads fell apart when trying to remove them. The company claims of performance asked just that, claims.

Speaking with gamersnexus, I sent over a couple of hundred dollars worth of thermal pads, and they were going to try and find a way to test them. They were never able to find a definitive way to test the pads.

Don’t buy into the hype of super expensive pads, as it is a waste of money.

Roger roger. I have those pink thermal pads 6W/mK sitting around, but Im out of 1.5mm one so I will have to wait for that. Thanks the_Scarlet_one :)
 
PS I have asked them a week ago

I have got the 1080 FTW2 and had this since release and also updated the 11ghz bios update and I've just replaced the tim with Mx4 as the temps and fans were playing up on default fan profile, thing is 2 thermal pads were damaged removing but i did manage to refit them to fully cover, on testing temps/fans were fine and looking good, but after i was looking at thermal pads and seen EK (blue) for water blocks but don't seem to sell any other type but price was good as some pads are just silly money, question is will they be ok on the graphics card ? or people used them on here, as if they are ok ill buy just for future backup
 
also why so many dam screws lol, remember the days when it was less i had to use a magnet tray, might just be me getting old and fluffy

If the pad is thick enough to fit between the cooler and it makes good contact, it will work. Make sure you remove the plastic cover on both sides of the thermal pad, because the thermal pad itself is gray, not blue. I say that, because the blue side is extremely thin, and will feel like it isn’t covered by anything else. Also be aware, the blue side is the most difficult to remove of the two sides lol.

I hope this maintains the warranty. I saw posts on reddit saying people were getting denied rma because they opened up the card for the same procedure.
