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.
