    I have had no problems at all with EVGA and they have some of the best customer support in the industry. I have run EVGA, 670, 780 Classified and 980 Classified under Windows 10 and have had no problems at all.

    As @specialkone said, no matter what manufacturer you use, the architecture is from Nvidia and the drivers are the same.

    Looks like the queue is starting to move. From registration to step 2 email took 2 months and 10 days.

    Now I just have to hope that Amazon mislabeling the invoice doesn't screw me over.

    Edit: Well, they verified my invoice. All that's left to do now is pay the difference, ship them my card and wait on my new one.

    Great news. Welcome to the world of Pascal speed, 8 GB of GDDR5x memory, a core clock you'll never see go below that 1847 MHZ boost number and cool temps. Enjoy.

    What do they do with all these older cards that get returned in the step up program?

    I always wondered that. Probably used as replacements for people that RMA

    Thanks man. I'm pretty stoked.

    That's what I figure as well. Either that or they refurbish them and then sell them again.

    Even if you're not really an overclocker (I'm not), what I like about Precision XOC is the OSD display and most definitely the ability to set customer fan curves.

    Oh yeah, custom fan curves are a must, although going to a single card should lower temps quite a bit for me. I'll definitely look into Precision again once I go to Pascal. Seeing as how I'm getting one of the lower end 1080 models, I'll likely be wanting to OC at least a bit.

    Congrats on your new card. If you have trouble with XOC, here's a look at latest A/B including the XOC kind of skin on my 1080 Gaming. And current O?C until rest of my fans get here. More juice left

    Personally, I don't see that SC card as lower end. 1708 base clock and 1847 boost compared to the FTW 1721/1860 means nothing for gaming. Depending on your specific rig temps, while gaming you will always be above that 1847. The differences with the FTW are features (not really game performance) two 8 pin, two bios and changeable LED lighting.

    Of course, we boys below, will be waiting for you to run a Time Spy score and of course you're expected to be in that 1080 group

    Oh, I guess you guys got the Gaming, ACX 3.0 in the step up, not the SC. Still 1607/1733 I don't think will make a difference at all with in game FPS.
