Windows 10: What Games are you playing right now?
Just goes to show you Technology advancement is the shyt lol
Good news on the GPU
Thanks, Dude. I think in a way the timing was good on the artifacting (happened only twice) as the RMA went in just before the potential for VRM heat issues surfaced on the web. So there we have EVGA taking care of everything and sending me a new card with the thermal pads installed. Good news and good stuff indeed.
I'm considering RMAing mine as well. The only thing holding me back so far is that I'd have to rely on integrated graphics for however long the RMA took. I did flash the new VBIOS that EVGA put out this morning, so that should help a little at least.
Are you thinking of RMAing just to get the thermal pads installed (no other issues right?). Assume you know you can order the thermal pads (free) and install them yourself. Gamers Nexus and JayZ have videos (links below) of how to install the thermal pads. Doesn't look too hard but I can understand customers who rather have EVGA do it.

Whatever method I would strongly suggest you get the thermal pads installed. Look at this from Gamers Nexus. No thermal pads, original bios without the new fan curve, 109 degrees C on the VRM. With the thermal pads and the new bios, 81 degrees C on the VRM. Big difference.
Oh, I'm certainly planning on getting the thermal pads on either way, I'm just trying to decide if I want to risk doing it myself or just sending my card in for RMA. I'm leaning towards the latter, just because I've never taken a GPU apart before.
Even if you messed up evga will cover it. I vote go for it. Good learning experience. I watched the vid, it isnt that difficult.
I must be getting close to the final battles in GOW4. Look at the armored suit I picked up, including guns and the ability to call in air strikes.
Wish I could order one of these suits for myself at the Microsoft Store .
GOW4 still running in DX12 with zero glitches.
