So we are starting to play around with our failed RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition card this evening. Below are two pictures of the card operating on an open test bench with an ambient temperature of 68F/20C. The card ran Heaven for about 45 seconds before locking up with the same artifacts we saw when it failed last Friday while gaming. We did purchase two 2080 Ti FE cards, so we will likely start dissecting the "good" card to get some better temperature readings. It is hard to test when your $1200 video card is broken. Thermal images with Temperature Sensors. While 138F/59C on the exterior of the backplate might seem a bit excessive, we will surely find out. As a side note, the FLIR ONE Pro is on sale.
