Re: Sticking with EVGA 2080ti. Now possibly making the jump to 3090
dwoodward I did a little digging and see what you mean. some cards had thermal pads that were applied crooked etc. I remember months ago it was said that they were pumping out so many cards that these defects were common. I'm just sticking with EVGA. I think I will keep the 3090 so far, so far nothing has really changed my mind yet. But I'll also watch and see what comes up the upcoming weeks. Generally I am fine with ASUS products, their motherboards have become more reliable over the years. I haven't had issues with EVGA stuff that wasn't user error on main boards or the board just getting too old.
