    That is why I don't use or trust these janky aftermarket homebrew coolers. EVGA isn't the first to have these problems with janky coolers. People think these companies have teams and labs testing this stuff but the reality is a couple guys in a room holding this together with duct tape and zip ties. My Founder's Edition doesn't need surgery or bios updates to stop the bleeding. It also default clocks higher than the posted clocks of even the FTW. It also vents out the back of my case instead of inside like a clown cooler.

    Well at least the fan bearings last a decade longer...

    Fact that EVGA give another fail. Don't mean all "custom" coolers are bad.
    You should not blame all brands for bad custom coolers :)
    Many brands do job really good. It reference builds are throtle more often.
    Especially high TDP GPU's. Where GPU performance is limited by GPU Boost trchnology, coz reach 85*C.

    Other thing is.. that some regions have some problems to get cards direct from nVidia.
    If its not from nVidia, its not fully 100% reference model - right?

    Probably none whatsoever. Even though the temps are high, those chips are designed to handle that and a bit more.

    Here's the one thing that's not clear to me....I have a 1080 sc acx. But I installed an evga hybrid cooler on it. So I'm not exactly sure if I need to worry about this now. Or if I should install the pads. Also, i run the fan at 100% cause i dont care about sound, i care about maximum cooling. Any opinions?

    Someone really loves their reference cooler. There are plenty of decent custom designs regardless of EVGA screwing up here.

    I took some thermal imaging from my colorful igame gtx 1080. I want to know at what temp or condition should we call this gtx 1080 is overheating. The back side of my card is over 80ÂșC when running furmark, is this overheating?

    This is my thermal imaging video, just skip to the middle.

    well its all about bios (basically fan preset)
    hardware wise (chip,cooler etc.) there nothing wrong right ?

    cant say they saving component cost
    except there really issue with the hardware, and they avoid replacing unit, then we can say they cheap out

    You installed it didn't you? You must have seen if it has pads or not. Pads are needed for better thermal transfer.

    I think Furmark still needs to be used for stability testing. If the cards survives that, it survives regular use for sure. And I have that claim at build quality. A card that doesn't survive Furmark isn't good enough.

    The damage is already done.

    The Heat sink or plate they use on their cards is very poorly designed compared to other gfx cards that i've seen.

    The whole thing doesn't look like it's even been made to bother with anything other than the gpu.

    Even once you do get pads where are you meant to place them because just sticking them on the HS's fins is not going to work out very well at all.

    You need a proper flat plate for heat transfer so i doubt this can even be resolved with pads. Ramping up the fan curve through VBios is not really a fix but more like a bodge.

    everyone do cost savings, but with 10% on production, 10% developing, 40% marketing and 40% revenue proportions they cut only production costs...
