    Strange still there are no comments from AMD-hysteric-fanboys crying how Nvidia is at fault here, or how "again" Nvidia ruined their cards\PCs\lives.

    Regardless it is not good when card manufacturers skip the usage of 1cent thermal pads... (manufacturers, not Nvidia.... AMD-fanboys, I note this specifically for you as your precious AMD-cards may also be affected one day)

    yeah seems a bit stupid really, it's like yeah we know people like their cards to run cooler so we will ship cards that run hotter. (ehh ?) or until people moan then we will ship some pads. okie dokie lol

    so if they know people like stuff to run cooler why didn't they fit them in first place lol ... hmmm

    the R9 390x is a good example of how cooling can be done, with the gpu being an ex-nuke reactor I have to say MSI do a very good job.

    Yeah, but it appeared an NVIDIA FANBOY/troll, trying to start flamewar for no reason.

    Amazing how people feel the need to instigate rivalry or even hate... Come on man... was it even necessary to say stuff like that?

    A problem has been found that customers aren't happy with, EVGA have responded to that problem, given a statement that the cards are operating within spec but offered customers an option to put customer's mind's at ease with a simple solution.

    Ok, I will bite:

    "EVGA has promptly re-titled their EVGA FTW 1080/1070 line to EVGA FTL 1080/1070..."

    Now to dignify this with an actual response: Probably because this is EVGA specifically and not something nVidia did.

    I was on the fence about buying one of the EVGA FTW models of the 1080 since I read the review of the 1070 on here and saw how hot it was getting in those images. Kind of glad I did now.

    well I disagree, Nvidia may not be directly to blame, but they have been tremendously aggressive with their GPU lifecycles lately. this could be having adverse affects on quality control from the vendors. reminds me of Samsung's issue with their phones lately...

    Thing is for company's like EVGA these pads should of been fitted from the start simply because people like more of a premium built card, and it stops stupid bad press for their company name, if your going to do it, you might as well do it right the first time, rather than faff about.

    like EVGA say it's with in spec, but they should know having a bigger margin between the spec will always be favoured, even more so for those who overclock.

    and its probs when the card is overclocked it at risk of being well out of spec so these pads should of been worth fitting from day 0 just to keep the masses happy.

    surly happy customer is worth the little extra cost, they pass the cost on to the consumer anyway, if they only cost few cents then well, what can ya say....

    It is Furmark and in extremely heavy conditions. Like, no games today can even achieve that stress enough on graphic cards. Besides that, i believe EVGA give 3 years warranty for their products.

    I wonder if the card warranty is lost if people order the free thermal pads and remove the backplate and heatsink to install them. After all, they have tampered with the card at that point, which technically should serve as a justification for voiding the warranty.

    Yes, it was. It was an honest surprise and a preemptive measure against AMD fanboys.
    Did you see the Thread regarding 1070 RAM issues? It got totally ruined and f***** by Nvidia-haters.

    The card is known to be faulty without checking it physically. Shouldn't be a problem.

    gonna test my card with furmark now just to see how hot my card gets lol max I've seen under Metro last light benchmark at 1080p, DX11, Tesselation high, motion blur normal, ssaa enabled, quality very high, AF x16

    closed PC case, room temp 24c

    after 10 runs of metro ll

    GPU max 79c
    VRM 1 max 72c
    VRM 2 max 46c

    after 5 runs of furmark, version 1.18.1.0, preset 1080 (FHD)
    GPU max 83c
    VRM 1 max 81c
    VRM 2 Max 46c

    monitored with gpu-z 1.12.0
    :O

    oh forgot to add when running metro LL GPU stuck at a solid 1080mhz and didn't not move, with furmark the gpu was being throttled between 938mhz and 1000mhz ...

    You act like NVidia users don't do the same **** in every AMD thread.... Seems like every AMD thread I go into, whether it's about GPUs or not, has instances of NVidia users attacking AMD.
