Just create a custom fan curve guys using or set it to agressive. Mines custom set the same as the aggressive curve, accept I changed it so the fans don't start until it reaches 40C As soon as you start gaming etc the fans will kick in.

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080/1070 PWM Operating Temperature Update 2016/11/02 01:33:58 (permalink)
I thought I was all up to speed on this, but after reading this thread and the earlier one I am as confused as heck!
I will ask a question which only pertains to my card. A simple direct answer would be much appreciated.
 
1. I have EVGA GTX 1080 FTW. Until today, I thought that for that model the only thing to do was put in the thermal pads. End of story.
I thought the vBios thing was only for GTX 1070 and had no connection to this heat issue. That is what I had been thinking.
 
Currently: I know that I will get thermal pads as I ordered, I am planning to put them in my GTX 1080 FTW. 
But, after all this reading I am totally lost regarding vBios updates.
 
Question: For the GTX 1080 FTW only. Is there any kind of vBios up-date in addtition to the thermal pads for the GTX 1080 FTW. Only that exact model (1080 FTW)
Thank you. A simple answer from anyone who knows properly would be greatly appreciated!
 
Idea/suggestion:
P.S. Jacob, the table at the beginning of this thread is very useful. Thank you. But now due to many different, interesting, but contradictory, posts it's difficult to be 100% certain.
So, I recommend some kind of list, which contains all Pascal cards regardless. Then next to each one, two columns perhaps. One For thermal Pads (Simply a tick or blank) The next column would be the same but for vBios. Again, a tick or blank. That way absolutely everyone with an EVGA Pascal card can easily see if they eligible for, PADS, VBIOS, BOTH, or NONE.
Please Jacob please do something along those lines. I sincerely beg, and will be eternally greatful. It seemed simple at first, but now with this thread and it's first linked iteration, just about everything is as clear as MUD.

I bought the ACX3.0 because it was one of the quietest cooling solutions on the market, now it will no longer be. :(

What should be the nominal and under high load temperatures for the VRM's on these cards according to factory specifications? Even with a fan curve modification/bios update it still seems to be around 95 degrees Celsius according to Gamer Nexus. That still seems quite high with that being close to the boiling point of water (100C) although it isn't water, but temperatures of 90/95C+ are usually still a reason for alarm. Does any electronics technician have any more information on this?
Also, what will the temperature be after the thermal pads modification?

What you can't forget is that they were pushing the cards to the limit with furmark loops. They'll never reach those temps when gaming.

Now users are going to complain about fan noise. 


At least we've finally moved on from "there is no issue".

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080/1070 PWM Operating Temperature Update

 
EVGA_JacobF
Q. Which cards are supported by these updates?
A. EVGA ACX 3.0 GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 or 1060 cards...

 
Given the above, would you consider updating the thread title to include the 1060? Understand you probably don't want the 1060 being dragged into the various click bait articles on games and tech media websites, but given the last post by a moderator in the "Are ACX 1060's affected by 1070/1080 Situation" thread still links to a post talking about defecting testing as opposed to there being a cooler/bios issue, given how this story has changed over time I think it would make things a little clearer for 1060 owners.
 
EVGA_JacobF
Q. If my Graphics Card is not an ACX 3.0 design is it affected?
A. No, all other GPUs sold by EVGA including Founders Edition, Blower type, HYBRID, and HYDRO COPPER editions are unaffected.

 
I know it says all other GPUs, but any reason why seemingly all the other cooler types where mentioned and not the ACX 2.0 single fan cooler used by some 1060's? The German Tomshardware article linked to in the "Are ACX 1060's affected by 1070/1080 Situation" thread shows the VRM hitting 112.2'C under gaming load (and higher for a stress/torture test) for a 1060 using a ACX 2.0 and this doesn't appear to have been addressed officially anywhere that I can see.
 
As the model numbers aren't mentioned, also assuming there will be no bios update for the ACX 2.0 models? And no offer of thermal pads?
 
EVGA_JacobF
*The EVGA EAR(Advanced RMA Program) and Cross Shipping options are available in the Continental United States, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, EU, UK, Norway, and Switzerland.  EVGA offers Standard RMA replacement options in the Middle East, Africa, India or outside of the before mentioned supported areas.

 
As Australia falls under "or outside of the before mentioned supported areas", guessing the RMA process here isn't going to be as friendly or timely as EVGA's solid reputation States side?

@Tzeh-Pesh  I agree with you. You probably saw my post a few above yours. For me it's the 1080 FTW. Anyhow, bottom line is not a few people are confused now!! The information keeps changing, a small number of people are posting opinions as fact. Only adds to the confusion.
 
So, yes, Jacob, please keep us updated. Please update the table on the first page to cover ALL Pascal cards, affected or not. Finally, EVGA is famous for it's great customer service. Having had previous dealing with them I fully agree. Excellent.
 
Keep in mind in such a wide reaching issue as this full transparency and updates, daily hopefully  are essential for maintaining your best in the business reputation.
 
People have spent a lot of money and deserve to be updated regularly. I also wonder why my Pads page (I ordered on Oct 25th and got an email reply/receipt) I was impressed. But today I checked it and it says something like "your request is awaiting approval." Approve WHAT?!? My card is fully registered, even the reciept was uploaded back in July when I bought it, so there is nothing to approve. The answer should be "on the way", or just "awaiting delivery", something like that. The current message is yet another small matter of concern to add on.
 
But above all, I'll say it again, that absolute transparency is essential with this kind of thing. That way when it's all over Customer Service outstanding reputation will remain intact. Thank you.

I have a question if I have a card who's part number matches one of those listed but has a BR after it when looking at my products on the EVGA website does that mean I should update it as well?

Should create a new ACX 4.0 model because after all this, our VGA will depreciate in the resale market.


This upset me big time, some of us paid full price few month ago...and the card lost half of his value already if not more due to these problems.
Let alone the part where we need to flash "put the problem under the carpet and play ostriches FTW BIOS" and now adding pads?...because we "EVGA" don't want to fix the problem properly Infuriate me big time!
 
Free cross shipping FIXED cards or a FULL REFUND are the only things that i'll accept now "exclamation points font-size 124" .

I saw that link, but it doesn't specify what the thickness of thermal pads should be at the VRM's between the PCB and the back-plate.
I'm assuming EVGA are sending that pad out for us to install ourselves.

This is absolutely unacceptable.
 
What were you doing instead of testing your cards before releasing them ? You just found out that your cards get so hot that they not only destroy themselves but can damage other components of people's PCs ? Oh wait, you didn't. Others did after you cards literally got cooked !
 
This situation is a joke especially after people pay over 400$ for your products. I shouldn't have to deal with applying thermal pads myself, when I have paid that much money for your GPU. I shouldn't have to RMA my card, because I shouldn't go through all the trouble after I've payed so much for a card. RMAing means I'm left with no card for days, which in my case hurts my work on top of me not being able to play games. I don't have the time to deal with your incompetency, and neither should anyone else after paying for a product that was guaranteed to be able to able to handle getting pushed even further.
 
Funny thing is you put it in a way that you are doing us a favor instead of apologizing for your incompetency. Thermal pads are not needed but we give it to you for free?! Even with the BIOS update the temperatures are not looking pretty, and it makes the card noisy for people who chose this brand for being silent.
 
I'm definitely not going with Evga next time I'm purchasing a GPU.

From this thread "bad(HOT) PCB Layout on GTX 1070 FTW? " on EVGA forums, the back plate space is reported to be 2.0mm, with 2.5mm thermal pads bending the backplate a bit.

Has anyone got their thermalmod ticket approved or am I the only one waiting for approval?

I'll add the pads but I'm not going to update the BIOS since the temps should be fine with the pads. In the future EVGA should make VRM are to have direct contact with the cooler and also add pads between backplate and PCB. If I remember correctly VRM cooling was shoddy on their Maxwell cards too.

I bought the SC 1070 because it is (was?) very silent. My machine sits on my desktop therefore every component needs to be nearly dead silent. I already adjusted the default fan curve because I really don't need this 0dB-"feature". Until 40 degrees the fans will run with 10%. In games I never reach temperatures higher than 70 degrees with the fans spinning at 35-40%.
 
If the fans would hit more than 50% with the new BIOS it would annoy me even with headphones or speakers while gaming. And to me this is then a different product, it's not anymore the silent card it was reviewed around the globe.
 
Would it be still possible to adjust the fan curve with the new BIOS? (I had cards at home from different manufactures where you could not adjust the curve anymore.) But if I do so, will I damage my card and will EVGA still take care of that? I'm fine with installing the thermal pads but not setting the fans to a maximum.

I'll add the pads but I'm not going to update the BIOS since the temps should be fine with the pads. In the future EVGA should make VRM are to have direct contact with the cooler and also add pads between backplate and PCB. If I remember correctly VRM cooling was shoddy on their Maxwell cards too.


The ACX cooler with this same type of heat spreader has been in every card I have purchased since Kepler. Kepler fans ran constant and moved a lot of air. Maxwell was the first generation with 0% fan speed up to 60c, and hest suddenly became an issue.. Then Pascal lowered the fan speeds more... So, constantly running was cool.. Occasionally running with good fan speeds was warm.. Barely running suddenly reveals hot components.

Watercooling provides silent cards with very low fan speeds on the cooler. Air cooling can not provide the same type of cooling, so higher fan speeds are going to be required to remove heat.

This is absolutely unacceptable.
 
What were you doing instead of testing your cards before releasing them ? You just found out that your cards get so hot that they not only destroy themselves but can damage other components of people's PCs ? Oh wait, you didn't. Others did after you cards literally got cooked !
 
This situation is a joke especially after people pay over 400$ for your products. I shouldn't have to deal with applying thermal pads myself, when I have paid that much money for your GPU. I shouldn't have to RMA my card, because I shouldn't go through all the trouble after I've payed so much for a card. RMAing means I'm left with no card for days, which in my case hurts my work on top of me not being able to play games. I don't have the time to deal with your incompetency, and neither should anyone else after paying for a product that was guaranteed to be able to able to handle getting pushed even further.
 
Funny thing is you put it in a way that you are doing us a favor instead of apologizing for your incompetency. Thermal pads are not needed but we give it to you for free?! Even with the BIOS update the temperatures are not looking pretty, and it makes the card noisy for people who chose this brand for being silent.
 
I'm definitely not going with Evga next time I'm purchasing a GPU.

Cutting corners will ends up costing them more money if a class action ensue (looking forward to this if they do not handle it the right way).




I could not agree more. Not replacing the cards with new ones, and offer
upgrade for ALL customers is nothing but discrimination. Just because I`m
in ASIA, I have to settle with refurbished cards on top of being without 
cards for a long time. I`m not accepting this!

I bought the SC 1070 because it is (was?) very silent. My machine sits on my desktop therefore every component needs to be nearly dead silent. I already adjusted the default fan curve because I really don't need this 0dB-"feature". Until 40 degrees the fans will run with 10%. In games I never reach temperatures higher than 70 degrees with the fans spinning at 35-40%.
 
If the fans would hit more than 50% with the new BIOS it would annoy me even with headphones or speakers while gaming. And to me this is then a different product, it's not anymore the silent card it was reviewed around the globe.
 
Would it be still possible to adjust the fan curve with the new BIOS? (I had cards at home from different manufactures where you could not adjust the curve anymore.) But if I do so, will I damage my card and will EVGA still take care of that? I'm fine with installing the thermal pads but not setting the fans to a maximum.


You can just continue to adjust the fan curve with Afterburner or precision.. You don't have to install the bios since it is only changing the fan speed.

Thanks for confirming, Scarlet-Tech!
 
Will do this and also install the thermal pads. Haven't had any issues regarding temps/blackscreens yet.

Yep. I'm sick of all the apologists on this forum and elsewhere saying, "oh it's ok, EVGA has excellent customer support, they'll take care of everything." Yeah, but this type of things shouldn't have happened in the first place let alone gotten to this point where it's a total side show. This is because the response has been pretty disjointed. They pushed out a quick test to say everything was "in-spec" and said thermal pads would fix it. Then after 'extensive testing' a week later it looks like the fans are under clocked. What's it going to be next week?

I guess some people enjoy having their leg pissed on and being told it's just raining. This is what I'm going to do: install the damn thermal pads, flash the vBIOS, keep my aggressive fan speed curve profile, and then forget about this whole fiasco until it's time to buy my next graphics card in a couple years which as sure as hell will not be EVGA.

Hello.
How I can get thermal pads in Russia?
Here  I see that You don't ship to my country.

You're letting it go way to easily, for sure i will NOT. For now i have an EVGA "listed on the defect part", and they have to replace it (cross shipping for free) with a brand new one (refurbish is a no no), all FIXED of course.
 
Now for my future card, well, i'll think about it when the Future comes.
 
Be smart EVGA, don't cut the branch you're comfortably sitting on.

I think for EVGA this is gonna be a before and after "the 1000 series drama"
 
They are gonne lose a lot of customers... I have to say that the only reason now that will push me to buy another of their product, this is the warranty extension... because I had a very high "image" of this brand, this is not the case anymore...
