    Did he overclocked? Did he use any bios mods? FURMARK????????????

    If he did overclock, what was the frequencies, also, if he did bios modding, which one did he use, or if he modded on his own, what was the power targets and or the TDP???, what was the fan speed during the time of the smoke??

    Also, that's a first, A gpu being seating without seeing a mobo inside the case, what the hell, the mobo is covered or something? never seen anything like this before, not to my knowledge.

    No OC, nothing like it. Only factory settings.
    Rest of the components are working fine.
    VRM's are burned out at the first place i think , then the GPU.

    I don't know if evga will take that back my friend.

    They will cover overclocking etc, long there is NO physical damage present, I fear, soon as they see that, they will say forget it however you can tell them about the situation, that everything was at stock settings and see what they say then, doesn't hurt to ask, but that burnt thingy, wow, I don't know man.

    There should be no warranty issue as that is clearly a failure not caused by the user.

    After seeing the 2nd pic, I think that the CPU Cooler is too close, there's not enough place between Gpu backplate and Cpu cooler...

    RMA, to me it honestly looks like a card failing. Not sure if the cooler could have any impact on the card, especially not making it go up in smoke...

    Not really , had very similar setup with Scythe Mugen 2 and HD7970Ghz, there was like 1cm gap at best, 3 years no problems with the temps.

    Actually there isn't much heat there between the cpu cooler and gpu..

    Yeah the slot/hole is readily there, looks like my card (GTX 980 Ti SC+).

    Could be something conductive got into the hole and short-circuited the PCB?

    There are no VRMs in that area, they are farther away. The burn mark is at the edge of cooler fastening, near GPU die or even under it.
    Those slots are probably there for venting some power-delivery related components though.
