After 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.

    PSU is a few years old, but holds a rock solid 12.168 volts under all loads... Even when I was running 2x7970s and pulling enough power to flicker my LED light bulbs. PSU didn't drop any voltage on any of the rails.

    Just another ostrich amongst the FTW3 owners, living in denial that their card could be a ticking time bomb.  Until it dies someday, and then they become believers.  Hopefully before the warranty expires or they'll be SOL.

    I 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.

    most of us know it's not your PSU. Chances of PSU killing a GPU is remote, unless the user is using different PCIe cables from 3 different brands. Also, it shouldn't take A week to kill your GPU if it was a PSU issue... Some fanbois just couldn't accept that some eVGA cards are faulty or made with a low quality part that results in a card dying out of the blue....

    You 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.

    I said that yesterday in response to the ones who aren’t been asked, yet! Imposing themselves so persistently and keep on bragging about their cards still been alive, while everyone else’s suffering from dying cards, that’s not nice.
     
    Well.... I tell you, enjoy your cards when you can. It’s not whether will break or not, it’s a matter of months or year, but you'd be back with similar dilemma, unless your pride won’t let you to show others that someone is actually right about these EVGA 30 series, especially FTW cards having serious design flaw.
     
    Threads of possible solutions, blaming PSU's or perhaps someone’s systems specs and other BS, Its absurd, total nonsense.
     
    No disrespect, but honestly, some of you guys have very limited to no commonsense

    That was only when I had the power limits cranked way up on my 7970s... I was pulling 1000 - 1100 watts from my rack mount UPS, lol. Both my monitors, Logitech 5.1 speaker system, and room fan also plugged in to the UPS. The lights are on the same circuit as the UPS outlet.
     
    Power still stable with the R9 Fury pulling close to the same power as the 3090, according to the UPS display.

    I tried pulling one of each 8 pin cables on the video card and with the middle one out the system at least would try to boot. Card was still dead :(. Sorry to hear that your 3090 FTW died as well.
    I think a lot of us would like to know what is the cause and fix for this issue. As my retailer gave me a refund, I am sitting waiting to hear something but if this goes on much longer I will end up buying a non evga card.

    Sorry you had issues. Be sure to add it to the poll. https://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=5fef66fae4b01140b9f9833b 
    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.

    There 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 system
    3090 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.

    My 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.

    I must admit in the 3-4 months that I follow this forum, I can't recall a no post problem like yours. I will check the internet in general and see if this is a manifested problem and will get back to you. I have vouched to help anyone facing problems with their GPU because I really don't want them to feel as bad as I did when this happened to me.

    RIP, sorry to hear that.  My card also died after 5 days of gaming.  What happened for me was I was in the COD cold war menu, the game crashed.  I started it back up and saw lots of different colors which were small spots then the screen when black with no signal and after that she was dead.  RMA'd the card and the new one has been fine now for 3 months.  I have the same PSU as you and have had it for 5 or 6 years, so its not going to be your PSU.

    I'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

    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).

    There ir no point in this guy´s comment. If you buy a $2000 product the minimum you expect is that it will work normally and that you DO NOT have to use the warranty. 
     
    Imagine you for people who live outside the USA, like me. The cost of sending these defective cards.

    I'm really not surprised.  Look at the cards that are being delivered by EVGA: they are all Ultras or other high clock cards.  None of the base clock cards have moved from Sept.  Not by a day.
     
    Real strange that ALL of the silicon they are getting is capable of top clocks...  Then some folks (not talking about OP) take that highly stressed, past red line card and OC it for good measure. 
     
    And eventually, the silicon proves it is NOT capable of top clocks and stops working.  Nope.  Not surprised at all.

    I don't know.. my card has yet to die.  I am sure it will at some point though since there are 100s of incidents posted here and that's just the ones we know about, and I am sure I will fight paying any shipping cost..  however.. I am happy I have the extended warranty because I plan to use the card in one of my two PCs for around 4 years.  If it costs me $500 bucks over the next bunch of years in shipping and insurance I will simply just go with a different brand next time.
     
    I read a comment up there about not using the warranty.  Almost had to with an ASUS motherboard.. however Amazon does returns easy so I was able to get one that worked.  Seriously, half the brands out there have issues.  Don't even get me started.. here.. because I can tell you horror stories about Asrock.
     
    My point originally:  The OPs PSU was not the issue the card is bad.
     
    My other point:  Do yourselves a favor.. extend the warranty on these things to 5 years if you plan on using the card in some rig for over 3 years.. because it will fail at some point.

    Don't get a scalped card. You'll only be able to get a secondhand warranty most likely.

    I'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


    I am really interested to hear what they have to say.  I live in New Zealand, and bought my card from PB Tech which is the largest retailer for Computer hardware here.  I asked them if they had more EVGA 3000 series failures than normal approximately a month a go while I was in the store for something else, they said no less.  I asked about my particular card (3090 FTW) and mine was the only one to have failed so far, although they did mention they haven't sold many of them due to the cost and they wouldn't say how many they have sold when I asked for a specific number.  
    One thing the person did mention is they have had several customers reporting random computer restarts with their 3080 cards, all had 750W PSU's and upgrading their PSU's always fixed the restart problem.  He said he just wished Nvidia recommended 850W PSU's instead of 750W for the 3080's.

    You call that cheap!  and I'm not a cheap person by any means, but that's not cheap in my book.

    It isn't so much about buying from a scalper and missing out on a RMA opportunity, its downtime. I use these cards for work, and planning a studio around hard-to-get hardware that may-or-may-not work is incredibly worrisome. I am stuck.
