I was actually kinda shocked when I got my EVGA card and it had a stamp that said Made In USA. I didn't think they made any consumer electronics in the US anymore.

It's probably assembled in the U.S., but a lot of components are sourced from overseas.

Im sure they understand a reference 4GB card can hit the same speeds and will perform just as well as this $800 card. There's not much they can do though. Theyve already done the R&D and produced the custom blocks. Gotta get what you can out of them.

EVGA should have released it sooner... with the voltage controller.

I didn't know they even assembled those in the US; I thought Nvidia made them overseas and they just received and sold them.

This is like driving a Nissan Skyline GTR but the twin turbos are disabled.

FAIL.

Hello gentlemen,

I signed on to this forum to ask 1 question of 1 member and it has evolved into something sooo much larger than I had originally intended! I'm not much for participating in forums but I felt that I should try to give back something for the help I've recieved. In regards to the "no EVbot" connection issue, there is a solution but doing it will void your warranty. you simply solder in a 6 pin connector (I don't have the exact part # but I can get it) and then clip 1 pin from the backside and pull it out. Apparently the firmware supporting EVbot was never removed! I admit this is a more technically difficult solution but since most of you are capable builder's it shouldn't offer too much of a challenge. If you have never done any soldering it's a fairly simple proccess, just make sure you have cleaned the area of the PCB you are going to solder. then fit the 3 connector pins into the coresponding holes on the PCB. since the connector can only mount to the board in one way you can't screw up on polarity. Fron the underside of the board apply a bead of flux to the tips of each of the 3 pins. Lightly coat the tip of the soldering iron with the solder then touch the tip of the iron to the tip of the connector while touching the solder to the iron at the same time. The flux will melt and draw the solder down and into the gaps. I'm sure there's a youtube video on the subject since there seems to be a video on everything! I hope this helped and I will be posting images of my rig sometime in the future to show off what I've learne:thumb:d.

EVGA should switch over to AMD.Should teach Nvidia a lesson or two.
post #70 of 74
I have done just that. But there are no real cost saving in doing it because you have to buy the waterblock, the backplate and pay for shipping but apparently the ones you assemble yourself can reach better benchmarks. And for those who will point out there's no evbot, I posted a solution on that thread.
