oh yeah, i have a 970 too, old roommate left it behind. guess we can call it even for the h110i i put in his rig...
Oh yeah no I used a toaster oven. The look on my brothers face, priceless!!At least Taco did not use the microwave.
I'm fairly certain that this is a true lifetime warranty based on purchasing the "Double Dissapation" model of the card and getting it registered with XFX at the time. Although if it died I am sure I would get whatever "equivalent" old card they have lying around, and certainly not a 6700XT.
Unfortunately nothing at the moment
Would be a really $hitty time for my main GPU to take a dump.
I so want to update the paste and pads on my 3090 but the sheer cost, and chance of replacing it being nil, scares me.
I'm good for the task being an EEE but theres always that what if?
Even though I have a spare card I'm just as scared as you about harming my top card.
If it was a 3080 and I could get another I'd be all over the upgrade.
Might still do it though, I have some nutter days
It hits 96C but in the summer its gonna be higher.I don't blame you. If the memory is legitimately overheating (spec is 95C for Micron IC's), I would be raising hell to RMA the card. If a company wants to sell a $$$$ graphics card, it's THEIR job to build it right, not the consumer's.
@JSHamlet234 , I am sure their reply will be:
"works as intended, no malfunction present. RMA when failure occurs and you are within waranty period."
What is a backup GPU? Can't get a primary GPU
Taco thinks he meant you can't even get a decent gpu to be used as a primary; some people are stuck on what would be considered a "backup class" unit.One you will use as a backup if needed.
