Bonjour à tous,
je voulais seulement faire pars de mon expérience avec ma carte graphique acheté maintenant il y a 3ans et deux mois. 
En effet, il y a 3ans et deux mois, j'achète ma carte graphique qui est une GTX 970 EVGA FTW 4Go. Elle fonctionna à merveille jusqu'au 9/02/2018.
En pleine partie de Fortnite, mon ordinateur ce coupe. J'ai cru à une panne d’électricité ,mais au vu des lumières encore dans ma chambre, j'ai tout de suite su à un problème avec mon PC.
Impossible de le rallumer, je commence à débrancher tous mes ports pour laisser seulement l'alimentation. Toujours impossible de le rallumer. Je me dis que ça pourré peut-etre venir de l'alimentation, mais celle-ci ne sent pas le cramée, et je vois une petite LED s'allumer pendant 0.2s à l'intérieur de mon PC. Par la suite, je retire ma carte graphique de mon PC et test l'allumage. Là, mon pc démarre. Je l'éteins, re branche ma carte graphique, re test l'allumage et ne s'allume plus. J'ai isolé le problème, la carte graphique. Je la test sur un autre ordinateur qui fonctionné également très bien, impossible de l'allumer une fois la carte graphique installée. 
Après mes tests, j'ai repris mon ancienne carte graphique que j'ai depuis 7 / 8 ans, ma GTX 660. Une fois installée, mon pc démarre parfaitement, sans aucun soucis. Je me rends sur le site d'EVGA pour voir si ma carte graphique est encore sous garantie et c'est avec stupeur que je vois que celle ci à expiré le 11/12/2017 , il y a même pas deux mois....
Après un bref échange avec le CM EVGA France ( très sympathique ) , il me fit comprendre qu'il ne pourrait rien faire pour moi ( ce qui est compréhensible parce qu'elle n'est plus sous garantie ).
Obsolescence programmée ou simple problème de production ? Je ne sais pas, aucun composant m'a l'air brulé.
Je passe donc d'une 970 à une 660 et je suis en larme :'(
Durant les 3ans elle a parfaitement rempli son rôle, elle à très bien fonctionné, c'est une bonne marque, mais je doute y retourner ,car à peine la garantie passée elle m'a claquée entre les doigts alors que m'a 660 que j'ai depuis 8ans n'a pas un seul soucis.
 
J'ai souhaité vous faire pars de mon histoire.
 
Bonne soirée.

Hello everyone, I just wanted to share my experience with my graphics card bought now 3 years and two months ago. Indeed, there are 3 years and two months, I buy my graphics card which is a GTX 970 EVGA FTW 4GB. It worked perfectly until 9/02/2018. In the middle of Fortnite, my computer this cut. I thought a power failure, but in light of the lights still in my room, I immediately knew of a problem with my PC. Unable to turn it back on, I start unplugging all my ports to leave only power. Always impossible to turn it back on. I think that it may be rotten food, but it does not feel like burning, and I see a small LED light for 0.2s inside my PC. Subsequently, I remove my graphics card from my PC and test the ignition. There, my pc starts. I turn it off, re plug in my graphics card, re test the ignition and do not turn on anymore. I isolated the problem, the graphics card. I test on another computer that also worked very well, impossible to turn on once the graphics card installed. After my tests, I took my old graphics card that I have for 7/8 years, my GTX 660. Once installed, my pc starts perfectly, without any worries. I go on the site of EVGA to see if my graphics card is still under warranty and it is with stupor that I see that it has expired on 11/12/2017, there is not even two months ... . After a brief exchange with the CM EVGA France (very friendly), he made me understand that he could do nothing for me (which is understandable because it is no longer under warranty). Scheduled obsolescence or simple production problem? I do not know, no component seems burned to me. So I go from a 970 to a 660 and I'm in tears: '( During the 3 years she has perfectly fulfilled her role, it worked very well, it is a good brand, but I doubt to return, because just the guarantee passed it slammed between my fingers while I 660 that I have since 8 years does not have a single problem. I wanted to make my story. Good night.

    Scheduled obsolescence or simple production problem?

    Sorry to hear your gpu died. Definitely not scheduled obsolescence.

    Sorry to hear man. But that's just sadly how things go sometimes. I know eVGA has at times accepted RMA's slightly beyond that of the warranty period, but with the current GPU shortage, it's not surprising they weren't able to help. A bummer none the less. If worst comes to worst, you can always try baking your GPU in the oven at a last chance revival.

    My EVGA 970 GTX FTW 4GB just smoked and went on fire yesterday. Looks like it's 4 months out of warranty. 
     
    Bad time to have a GPU failure. I might try and replace the burnt chips...

    Ouch.
    That short out of warranty is just bad.
    looks like the warranties are getting to be like car maintenence: If you dont do it before the schedule says to, then you risk it going out.
    With video cards, if they say 3 year warranty, expect to buy a new card soon after the 3 years.
    :)
    HDD and SSD are the same, not saying video cards are any different.
