So seems like a lot of mixed messages. My source is from their forums, Matthew Hurwitz at EVGA.
Yah this seems to be a fairly new issue. Posts are just starting to pop up here and there. For a company like Evga that is pretty much known for reference cards. Its weird they would do this without telling anyone when it even makes their own water block not work.
This first reo I spoke with was in disbelief and said there was no way they would do this without putting the information out there.
