yea? Furmark comes to mind.
Furmark only kills shitty or already heavily abused cards. I've only stopped using it for testing, cause it's old and uses wa-a-a-y too little VRAM. Superposition or Timespy work much better.Furmark
On the other hand, it's not the first time EVGA has released a poorly-designed card. GTX 10-series comes to mind, where most 1060s had abysmal VRM that liked to overheat, 1070s had an issue with VRAM power circuit design (VRM would usually burn the hole on the edge of the PCB) etc. etc.
Also quite fresh in my mind ASUS Cerberus GTX1070Ti, which had no VRAM cooling at all (just an ambient breeze). Lots of those died a long and painful death even without super-intensive loads and overclocking. Had one just a couple of months ago: giant f#$%ing triple-slot HSF that screams "Gaming Powa-a-a-a", while in reality it weighs less than some of my old ITX-friendly cards and doesn't do shit for actual cooling. Memory had to be downclocked to below stock in order to prevent artifacts from happening (and this was the "new-old stock", barely 6mo out of the box).
