    RMA Fraud on Amazon Targeting AMD Ryzen Buyers

    Similar thing happend to me buying a warehouse deal EVGA GTX 980 around December 2015, when Amazon UK had that extra 20% off the prices. When I opened the EVGA box their was a GTX 460 or 470 in there. Amazon UK refunded me straight away. So whoever bought the GTX 980 from Amazon UK stock must...

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SuperClocked 8 GB

    Any non-reference EVGA ACX 3.0 card with a shipping date prior to September don't have any thermal pads installed. On the instructions on how to install the thermal pads it includes Classified, FTW and SC / stock versions, the methods differ due to the screws on the PCB being different for the...

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SuperClocked 8 GB

    A score of 9.8 looks abit silly now, considering the findings of three other review sites for the EVGA ACX 3.0 pascal cards not having sufficient cooling in place to cool the VRMs compared to all other brands. I guess it could be time consuming and costly, I read on the Guru3D website that the...

    EVGA GTX 1070/1080 Overheating Issues Update - New BIOS Revision To Be Released

    The black screening is an entirely different issue. As per an EVGA statement - it was caused by On Semiconductor (VRM IC Manufacturer) VRM IC's being out of spec, triggering the OCP (Over Current Protection) The percentage of the IC’s that were out of spec has been confirmed by On...

    EVGA GTX 1070/1080 Overheating Issues Update - New BIOS Revision To Be Released

    Yep, I don't really care how you want to swing it around, I'm not prepared to risk damaging the card. No one can even read the temps of the VRMs like you can with AMD cards, no reading comes up in GPU-Z to monitor it with Nvidia cards. I guess I could just use it anyway, if it blows then...

    EVGA GTX 1070/1080 Overheating Issues Update - New BIOS Revision To Be Released

    Having installed the card and within hours reading the overheating issues, I've not even ran any benchmarks, no gaming whatsoever in the last two weeks or so, my card is old stock running Samsung memory, shipping date of July even though I bought towards the end of October. I did request the...

    EVGA GTX 1070/1080 Overheating Issues Update - New BIOS Revision To Be Released

    Maybe thermal testing can be implemented in future TechTowerUp reviews? I know it's costly, but still... Having only bought an EVGA 1070 FTW a week before the news came out, I feel an absolute fool for not reading the Guru3D 1070/1080 reviews. The Toms Hardware results were in German and I...

    Specs Don't Matter: TechPowerUp Poll on GTX 970 Controversy

    Problem with these polls is you will get Nvidia fanboys just praising the card even though they don't own a GTX 970. If the vote was somehow able to let only people who own the GTX 970, how different would the actual poll be? Who knows...

    Please Reset Your TechPowerUp Forums Password

    Thanks for letting us know, probally sounds daft saying that, but Scan the retailer here in the UK got hacked in 2007, and never bothered to tell anyone, then they got hacked again about two weeks ago, and never bothered to tell anyone again. It was only when people received emails with their...

    Received my MSI Z77 MPower yesterday, will be interesting to see if any overclocking improvements since that 17.0B15 pre-release beta bios that was used in the review. [17.3] Enhance OC ability. [17.2] Support GOP detection function. [17.2] Improved memory compatibility. [17.1] Release BIOS...
