Are you freaking serious? I ordered this 2080 XC from NewEgg exactly on 09/21/2018 and tonight, 09/22/2020 it literally blew up two years later. One week after the launch of the RTX 3080 no less. What are you trying to tell me EVGA?
 
Here's a vid of me trying to restart the PC after it suddenly shutdown after 15 minutes of gaming and smokes pouring out of it.
 
Edit: Weird, it won't let me post links or upload pictures even when it shows up ok in the previews.

    It's for bot spamming and stuff. I think you need a certain amount of posts before you can place links in your comments. You can still post it, but take a few characters out of the link when you paste it here.
     
    Anyways that sucks your GPU blew up like it did. You still have warranty on your card I'm assuming? So at least you won't be high and dry without a GPU for a while. 

    I will either find a way, or make one.

    Assuming you talked to CS, interested to hear what they had to say
