liud21Still trying to blame the the users PSU...
dmfp42I did check the PSU just in case, but My 7970s pull way more power than a 3090, and voltage stays up, so not the PSU in this case, lol.
arestavoYou said that your house lights flicker?Have you thought about protecting your investment with clean power? A PFC compatible, pure sine wave (not simulated/square wave) UPS would likely be a shrewd investment.
RickJamesBishSorry you had issues. Be sure to add it to the poll. Its likely not anything you did based off others reports. I ran my 3090 FTW3 on a 650, daisy chained for two weeks. Not that I would recommend a 650 but EVGA Power Meter recommended a 750. I temporarily swapped in a 750 and gamed with it for over a month. Ended up getting an EVGA 1000 G+ simply because the price was right and I wanted upgrade the PSU in my other system with a 3070. Moved the 750 there and put the 1000 in mine. I have no doubt, based off the amount of gaming I did per day, that I could have continued just fine with the 750 and maybe even the 650. EVGA has good support so just go through the process and I hope you get a good one.
Gogod2020There is a failure pattern. During November-December there was tons of posts for 3080s that went bad (including mine). Seems that RMAs went out and work so those posts subsided. Now we have recurring problems.The pattern:3080 ftw3: either red light of death, or black screens, or black screens crashing the system and fans revving high crashing the system3090 ftw3: red light of death and some black screens crashing the system.3080xc3: Coil whine and some black screens crashing the system. From my personal experience I will tell you that the card problems excibit themselves from day 1. This is not something that just "happened along the way". Its something that was there and perhaps we didn't notice it. The first time I logged into a game after installing my 3080 I heard the excruciating fan noise. I was like "**** is this" but dismissed it as being normal for a card of this power and size. Only it wasn't normal and soon all hell broke loose until I had to RMA. The replacement is working like a horse out of the box and hasn't shown any of the previous faulty card signs. I strongly disagree that "its just waiting to happen". Something either works or it doesn't. If it works and no setting changes there is no reason to stop working. Simple as that.
dmfp42My 3090 didn't even give any red lights... Just stuttered as a game or two crashed to desktop, so I rebooted, and it wouldn't post. Just the beeps that tell me I have no GPU, lol. Even then, no red lights.
dmfp42After about a week or so of use, my 3090 FTW3 Ultra is dead :( Doesn't post anymore, monitors get no signal. Didn't even get a chance to overclock it, lol.Just gives me the beeps of no video card. Tried reseating it, different slots, different PSU cables (even though none gave the red light).I'm sad Any other suggestions for me to try?Currently back on my R9 Fury for now... So far my first NVIDIA card hurts, lol. On a side note... the 3090 is 50 - 100FPS faster than a Fury in pretty much anything, at 1440p lol. Ryzen 3900xAorus x570 MasterCorsair AX1200
flg2010 Read some of these comments.. I mean I don't know about the rest of you guys but I purchased a 2 year warranty extension for my 3090 FTW3 Ultra.. that's a 5 year warranty lol. So when it dies I will get a working one.. and when that one dies I will get a working one.. etc.. etc ... etc.. And in like 4 years I will be using a different GPU anyways. The original poster has a 1200 watt psu.. I doubt its his psu..

The original poster has a 1200 watt psu.. I doubt its his psu.. The warranty is great and all. But if this is a recurring problem that causes some users to have to RMA multiple times over the lifespan of the card then that in itself will cost a lot from shipping expenses. If a user didn’t opt into advanced RMA then it can cost $100 or more to ship the GPU with insurance depending on where you are in the country (USA).
CLL1990these posts are freaking me out. everything is already marked up 200%, if i end up dropping my entire savings account on a build that gets fried after a month of use i am going to be screwed
SprayingMangoI've reached out to multiple sites to investigate the high failure rates of 3090s. So far I've sent info to PC Gamer, Tomshardware, Anandtech, The Verge, and Hothardware. I'm hoping they can get a response out of EVGA. This is absolutely unacceptable for GPUs that cost upwards of $2000
dmfp42$132 Canadian to ship, fully insured... Cheaper than I thought it would be, lol
phrozeCLL1990these posts are freaking me out. everything is already marked up 200%, if i end up dropping my entire savings account on a build that gets fried after a month of use i am going to be screwedDon't get a scalped card. You'll only be able to get a secondhand warranty most likely.
