Hey... what about 1080 SC?
 
I have requested the thermal pads just in case, but I'd like to know if there are reports of 1080 SC cards having this problem.
 
Thanks.

So the 1070 SC models are unaffected, yet EVGA is still offering thermal pads to those owners. I have a 1070 SC and would like the thermal pads, but the thermalmod page says I don't own a qualifying product. What do I do to get the pads?

Welcome to the Forum
Only the FTW Models are part of the "Optional EVGA Thermal Pad Mod Request" that is in place.




Thanks for the reply.

EVGAtech> so 1070 SC owners dont have to be worried about this overheating issue ?

And can you show me that 1070/1080 from other brands had this issue too ? I make a quick search, I only find "evga, evga and evga, always evga..."

Also, I dont know what to think between the article of WCCFtech and what you are saying, you and glorious...
 
Is this really a "FTW owners" issue only ?
 


I cannot link directly to any specific pages and I do think all of our neighbor companies have excellent products as well. What you can try is search terms such as "caught fire" or "melted" along with specific brand names and you will see we are not the only company that experiences this. Also, as I mentioned, the EVGA forums and community are far more active and we have a large share of the 10 series cards in the wild. It is inevitable that the top search entries will yield results for EVGA.
 
I have worked with many thousands of cards over the years and I can assure you that this is not a problem that is unique to the 10 series or EVGA. To my recollection I have not had to issue a single RMA for a 10 series card that has caught fire.




My 1070 SC edition is in your hands right now under RMA.  Quit lying and trying to sugar coat this issue. You all need to do a full on recall before someones' house burns down.  Mine burned out while playing Black Ops 3, not overclocked, in a very high airflow case.  EVGA just needs to step up and take responsibility for this issue and try to earn some respect back.

Do you have the latest Video Bios Update installed? its suppose to fix that issue, luckily my Black Edition came with it shipped so I didn't have to apply it myself (Bought my card early last week)

I thought that the Back Plate was part of the Cooling System?
As far as i know the plate has 2 functions: stability for heavy cards and a heatsink, provided you have proper surface connection. Which is why evga offers the pads to cards with a backplate.



Quickly looking at my dismantled 1070, i can verify there are 4 small rectangular thermal pads on the back-plate
that make contact right at the back of the GPU in a square pattern. That is the only point at which the back-plate
makes contact with the PCB. Like mentioned earlier, i'd feel better if those tests where taken with the back-plate
off, as theres no direct contact there. I would hazard to guess the temps will be higher once it was removed ?
Theres like 3mm of air between the back-plate and the back of the PCB where the VRMs live.

Hello I have an EVGA 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0. Does the same problem of overheating VRMs effecting the FTW versions apply to the 1070 SC?
Or Is this problem ONLY specific to the FTW cards, or could it be an issue on my 1070 SC.
Should I get these thermal pads being offered? 
There seems to be so much contrasting info out there.
Thanks

Guru3D tested 1070's with the VRM's using 3DMark Firestrike, using thermal imaging equipment.  The EVGA 1070 SC Gaming hit 96℃ where the VRM's are located, that's between 27℃ to 39℃ hotter than three of it's competitor brand cards.
 
 
See below for results.
VRM = 64℃ - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 GAMING >> 
 
VRM = 57℃ - ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 STRIX Gaming >> 
 
VRM = 69℃ - MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming Z >> 
 
VRM = 96℃ -  EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC Gaming >> 
 
 


Well after reading EVGAs response to my question, I felt much better, but now seeing this I just don't know what to think. Guru3d, I believe is a very reputable site... I managed to order the thermal pads for my 1070 SC. some people said they could not order them, as the system said there SC did not qualify, but I had no problem ordering it. I guess I will just wait and see what happens and keep up to date with this issue. I have never taken a GPU apart, and really do not want to if it is not necessary.  I really like my 1070, (having come from a AMD Gigabyte R9 290, that heated up like a furnace, and sounded like a freight train). I am reluctant to take it apart to install the thermal pads, but at the same time I don't want it to catch fire...

I hope EVGA is saying the truth here because a lot of people will never know whats going on with this overheating issue and another lot of people will not put the thermal pads..

This is what I find disconcerting, no one from Evga is directly responding to this article and it's really confusing right now. (By all means if I'm wrong point me to the reply) I've been considering getting a 1080 for Xmas and my normal brand is Evga, but after this issue cropped up and after I've read in a dozen or more places that yes, ALL EVGA MODELS ARE AFFECTED, I come here to get real solid answer. Evga rep says no, only the FTW's but then we have some articles that say otherwise.... Can we get some clarification? Because at this point I may have to go with one of the competitors, even if it's not going to catch fire like the FTWs, no one wants reduced lifespan for such an expensive piece of hardware.
 
Edit: When I try to link the article from Guru3d, it's automatically deleted... lol

Ah that explains the disappearing link.
 
So all Pascal Cards with Back Plates have this issue, forgive me for not knowing anything about what is or isn't a pascal model but what does that mean to the layman? Is there a specific date I can go by? Is there a specific brand line I should be avoiding? How can I quickly figure out what card is or isn't pascal model?

Just requested the thermal pads for my 1070 SC.
I really didn't want to disassemble my GPU I just got less than 3 weeks ago when it seems like everything has been working fine.

Where is your Prof, you never posted a Thread Here showing us.
Post some Photos so we can all see this card that burned up.




I wish I would have known this was happening so I could have taken photos before I sent it off for RMA.  Unfortunately the card had a back plate so i couldn't see the exact issue, could only smell the burning smell.  I didn't know this problem was occurring until someone linked me to an article on twitter a couple of days ago (about a week after I sent it in for RMA), and now it is all adding up. I've been a Memeber here since 2014 but have never needed to post before since I've never had an issue, or needed help overclocking etc since I don't do that.
I just hope EVGA steps up, presents the truth and takes good care of those with problems.  

So for now all I can do is help others avoid having similar problems, and try to correct or detour false information going around.
 
Here is a picture while everything was fine with it https://twitter.com/ZCTxCHAOSx/status/792598395206545408
 
I now have my old r9 280x back in it and everything is working wonderfully (besides the lessor performance of the 280x) but luckily I still had it as my PC is my work machine to work on Call of Duty Levels.

No I am not say that, ZCTxCHAOSx is say that all cards that have back plate are.
Myself no card is having an issues unless you are seeing them on your own personal card.
Some users are saying that they are have Temperature issues and they are the ones that might need the extra thermal pads.
A Pascal Model Graphics Card is the current GPU that NVIDIA has released to the Market.
The GTX 1050 1060 1070 and 1080. NVIDIA also has a Titan X Pascal Card that some users call the Titan XP
Remember that this is an Open Forum open to anyone and also that I am not an employee of EVGA.

When did you buy that card, from where and did you check the manufacturing date via http://www.evga.com/support/guestregister.asp and entering your serial number?
Has the card been manufactured before 8/30?

My thermo mod set is just ordered. After log in to european EVGA site I enter evga.com/thermalmod and on the bottom I found my adress and registered card details (in my case 1070 SC bought in August) which was approved for order this thermo set.

I bought my1070 SC ASX 3.0 from microcenter last week. So if the manufacturer date is after 8/30, it's safe to keep and use?

What I'm really asking, what's going on if the graphic card makes damage on other parts of the computer ?

The motherboard for example ? evga will pay for that ?

Look at the top post. (Warning There is a VRM PROBLEM Protect yourself) He had a 1070SC burn up. Also my 1070SC gets checkerboard crashes if i apply any overclocking at all. Even if my card is running 65C it still crashes in every game with a slight overclock.

That's a good question and EVGA should clarify.
