ilyamaEVGAtech> 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 ?
EVGATech_JosephL 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.
email@example.comHello 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
yatz10Goodness gracious - WCCFtech has an entire article that is more or less full of apparent mis-information on this. You all should set them straight... Nvidia GTX 1080 & 1070 EVGA Cards Reportedly Catching Fire & Dying Due To VRMs Overheating(e.g. "The issue affects EVGA’s entire range of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 cards equipped with the ACX cooler, all of which lack direct VRM cooling. This includes GTX 1080 & 1070 ACX, SC, FTW & FTW DT models. Essentially all dual fan models except the Classified.")
HeavyHemiWCCF is the Enquirer of the tech world...or Breitbart if you're politically inclined.
EVGATech_JosephLGloR1ouS_ is correct. I can assure you that there is no overheating/VRM issue. The tests that were performed are not considered to reflect a real world usage environment. We performed similar tests at a higher temperature using more accurate equipment and found much different results. Even if you owned an FTW the thermal pad modification is not necessary but just an added bonus we are offering because we would like our customers to be as happy with our products and services as possible. If you would like to install the thermal pads you can feel free to request them HERE. Here is the result of our tests: As you can see the temperatures are well within spec.
Salem13 Here is the result of our tests: As you can see the temperatures are well within spec.I would feel much more confident if you took that thermal image without the black plate installed.
tvicemanSo 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?
