    I been using a Gigabyte 980ti g1 gaming edition. It stop working all of a sudden. I sent it back not once but 3 times. All 3 cards stop working. My question is. They are out of stock on the 980ti g1 gaming I was using, and offered me a 1070 G1 gaming to take its place.

    What would you do?

    The 1070 is not that much faster than the 980Ti, but I would take it. It has better power management and also runs way cooler. Definitely a deal for you.

    Didn't do anything, not even overclocked them further....plugged them in, 3 hours later they were a brick.

    The reason I am asking, they the reviews were from 2016 I look at said it was a tad slower than the 980ti g1 series. felt like a downgrade..

    The drivers have since improved for Pascal and decreased for Maxwell, with latest drivers you should be on par or ahead in many games. I would take the 1070.
    But the question remains, what do you do to kill 4 cards? :D

    It might have been that all the cards had some type fault, but I would make sure that it's not actually your PSU or something that broke them. After you get the 1070 and it breaks down, I doubt you will get new card.

    Just take that 1070 as replacement and don't think twice. As few others here mentioned it REALLY WEIRD to see total of 3 cards to die just like that. I would check that PSU of yours for sure, if something is gonna kill GPU not once but 3 times it'll be a faulty PSU.

    I don't think its the video card fault. Its most likely your PC's hardware issue - in specific PSU / Mobo.

    As stated above, if you fry 1070, they will give you a middle finger. Check your hardware first, that's where the issue is.

    I would agree, but I am using a 7970 ghz model card right now as I type this. This 7970 is working just fine, time after time. I too was worried. The second card they sent me, I could hear the ballbearing from the fan and the fans wouldn't turn correctly. I think I just got poor luck or bottom of the barrel on the cards they sent me.

    Why don't you ask for an 1080 (or Ti) if you can afford it the difference in price? I'd do this.
    Opportunity for future profit I may say.

    Take the 1070, that's a no brainer. If the problem persists then it's most likely your power supply.

    if you know they were 3 different cards, I'd say your system is the issue.
    PSU or such.

    As for 1070, it's about the same performance but uses less power and more vram.

    My bad, I missed Holyneo's post about the fan failing on one of his replacements. If the 3 cards stopped working for different reasons, fair enough it's just bad luck and the 1070 should be fine.

    I would be worried about putting a new GPU in a system that's had 3 GPU failures.
    I would be looking at my PSU I would also be putting in an old GPU to test the system before risking a new GPU.
    As southhamptonfc said if they are all failed for completely different reasons I would be less worried but I would still check the system

    You may have developed a marginal PCIe slot too. They can and have gone bad in the past. I suggest a good cleaning of the port, and check for any pins that are off-center. Also try different power feeds if your PSU is multirail.
