DrunkenDemonAs said above, it isn't just eVGA. They just have a very active forum compared to others. I think its a mix of a couple things. People with "problems" posting on the internet while the people without don't bother. Add that to so many people playing with their BIOS (flashing BIOS from other manufacturers, etc) and just about every other setting they can think of to get higher benchmarks and you are bound to see failures. Before it was primarily people with experience doing these things while now everyone thinks they can do it adding again to failures. Combine that with all the people mixing these power hungry monsters to old worn out PSU, older motherboards, using divider cables for power, etc and you will get more problems. Not to mention, I doubt most people complaining about problems give us the full story. They might leave out certain points in case they need to RMA and posting on the manufacturers own forums is probably not the best place to list everything they did to a card.
AWK16Not to be mistaking luck of draw with ticking bomb (cheaply build cards) Last night I reported one of my friends FTW3 3090 that was 4-5 weeks old died and he was so happy that the grace period of test was past him, what you say about that. Literally this morning at work another guy reported he got his card 3 days ago (black lip) died. I'm sorry to say but EVGA cards are problematic this time around. What’s worse, Jacob have been asked ### of times by ### of people to give explanation, no answer to date, that is indication of sweeping issues under the rug, I lost my trust in EVGA
MBrown1964What is going on with these cards? I happened to get lucky where the lights are messed up I can't control them and my far right fan that cools 4 power phases in it and is super important im sure and is why all this is happening... i guess since i have my fans in my computer ramped pretty high it still works and i can use it but who wants a card that has a super important fan on it dead and no control of the lighting whatsoever and with it like this there is only a matter of time til its dead cuz something obviously shorted out or something... its either off, white , or like 5 leds on the left are lit up and that's it and they light uyp white and the rest is dead lol but soo many people are having these problems like my MSI 2080 ti gaming x trio is still running just fine and for about a full year i've ran it on 100% fan speeds and those fans still are working great and no leds are out so im kind of mad now cuz i dont know if its just the FT3s only or is the other 3090 oc one that's black is that one having these problems? Can anyone tell me if the other 3090 XC3 Ultra Gaming anyone heard this card dying cuz im probably going to just get this one cuz of how many FT3s seem to have just died with some people it resets and dies some its dies in a game. i wouldnt have ever figured it out if i hadnt tried to change the color of my led on it then it wouldnt change and i then look at the EVGA Precision the thing that shows all the temptures in the card now mine shows 0 on everything but it still reads the masin cpu and its working and is cool but i bet the power where the fan used to help it those must be getting hot cuz once in a while my computer will reboot or the screen will go black and stay for a while then come back on so EVGA what is going on with these cards and no fans on a card should die before any of the actual other components cuz ive never had 1 single dead fan on anything until now...

Intoxicusme to wonder how many failed cards are using both connectors on a daisy chain power cable.EVGA is saying it's ok to use and I've come to heavily question if they should be used at all.Stick with one connection per GPU power cable and it will likely work better overall.
SprayingMangoI'm worried as well and i'm trying to figure out if there is a correlation between serial number and failure rate. I see many 2014 serial number cards being posted as dying and only a few 2012's. This reminds me of the 2080Ti cards that were failing at launch due to memory die issues. I have a 2012 3090FTW3 Ultra that I put the hybrid kit on and i'm very worried it will die in a month. :(
flg2010I dunno... I suspect its the stress on these cards when people play newer games at max settings. I am seeing temps in the high 60s and low 70s just playing ff14 1440 max settings at 165 htz I have no idea what would happen if I played a newer game.. I am actually avoiding anything more taxing then warframe right now. Until maybe there is a bios fix or driver fix.
Scales218Is this still happening?
Gogod2020DrunkenDemonNot to mention, I doubt most people complaining about problems give us the full story. They might leave out certain points in case they need to RMA and posting on the manufacturers own forums is probably not the best place to list everything they did to a card.I told my S/N to support and got an RMA in 2-3 min if that says anything. No questions asked either. Something is just bad.
Cool GTX If there is an NDA from Nvidia ... nothing will be postedIf EVGA has the ability to make public comment - then they will decide when & what is appropriate
SprayingMangoSo this comment confuses me. Did you just call support even though you had a card that worked perfectly fine? Or did you call because your card died? Why did you call and what did you say?
FatalesAdd me to the list... 3080 ftw3 ultra with sn 2012 seems to be dead. Freezes, blackscreens and artifacts started a week ago and happened more often every day...
Gogod2020FatalesAdd me to the list... 3080 ftw3 ultra with sn 2012 seems to be dead. Freezes, blackscreens and artifacts started a week ago and happened more often every day...I RMAd just when the artifacts started. Exactly same story as yours mate. Good luck to us. May the next be the last.
