    I downloaded BF1 last night. Now, I have to find time to play it.
    You need to make time, essenbe.

    Meanwhile, an update on my EVGA FTW 1080 RMA. Below is part of the email they sent me a couple of days ago. Yep! It's a brand new card and it has those thermal pads installed. In addition, I figured it was going to ground ship from Brea, California to Montreal. Nope. They sent it expedited international at no charge to me.

    "We wanted to reach out and make sure that you are aware that the graphics card shipped was updated with our optional thermal mod update, and is a new fully tested replacement."

    So I just fired this puppy up and tried Tomb Raider. I didn't see a clock as high as 1974 in game with my previous card. Additionally, the lowest clock I saw in ROTTR so far with the RMA is 1936, about 38MHZ higher than my previous card. Maybe it's those thermal pads.

    Looks like I will be an EVGA customer for a VERY LONG TIME. Their customer support is incredible.

    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.

    How to Install Thermal Pad Mod on EVGA GTX 1080 1070 - YouTube

    EVGA FTW VRM Failures - What should you know - YouTube

    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.

    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.

    Xaa's mod for DS1 "MageWorld"
    - Pookah and Mantri have reached the island of the White king..
    - that's on square K1, natch!

    first, buy DS1 on disk for a tenner (- the Steam version won't work with the mod..)..
    Dungeon Siege (PC): Amazon.co.uk: PC Video Games

    - then find the mod online and figure out how to make it work..
    ..it's part of the fun..
