Yeah, I've thought about this. The 780 Ti Classy is part number 03G-P4-2887-KR and the 980 Classy is part number 04G-P4-3987-KR. Both can't be bought new anymore (although Newegg is selling the 04G-P4-3988-KR part and I can flash the BIOS if it's any different from the one I'm getting). I just don't know if I want to dip into the used market to get a 780 Ti without warranty (after all, I just saw one of mine die a little while ago) or spend some money out of pocket for another 980 Classy. I dunno, I'll think about it some more.

Side question, anyone know the difference between the 04G-P4-3987-KR and 04G-P4-3988-KR models? They honestly look the same to me...
pardon the potato:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

got that back from an RMA myself (had hoped for a maxwell as you got). flashed the skynet bios but i would'nt OC anywhere near as good as what went flonky. the one i sent had a fan die w/the other going 100%. so i threw my hands up in the air and grabbed whats in my rig now off of ebay.

it's been sitting in the RMA box for months and i have an old 570 to use in a pinch. if there is something i can do to help you out - send a PM.

Kill the second card and RMA it.

Geez, people are really going to screw you over. Contact evga and let them know. They will exchange the other 780ti for a 980 classified. Its that simple.

And DO NOT kill the card and RMA it as kickasscop said. That is an ignorant suggestion.


EVGA should have noted the checked SLI box when you sent the first card in, but they often ignore or miss it. At this point, i dont even think they care if it is checked.

Either way, they will take the second 780ti back and exchange it for a 980 classified to get you back into SLI without much hassle. Just email them through your original RMA ticket and explain that you had them in SLI, and want to continue to SLI but are unable after they returned a newer card.

Furthermore, about KAC's suggestion: IF you kill the card, which would be foolish to do, you are screwing someone else over. If your second card is good, and you send it back, EVGA may be able to use it to replace someone elses older card, like a 780 Classified, and upgrade them to the 780ti. If you kill it, they will get sent a 970 at most. The 780ti still slightly out performs the 970, so you would potentially be stepping someone else up rather than causing more delays for someone else.

Selling it is beyond ignorant, when the 780ti is selling for $250-$300.. how are you going to afford a 980 at $600 off that amount of money? it may cost you $30 to send it to EVGA for exchange and then again, they may pick it up for you at no cost. Don't fall for the above traps of people trying to get you to waste your own money foolishly. Do the proper thing.

Oh cool, this is a great idea. I'll try it out for sure. Thanks!

I updated the post a bunch of times, so make sure to read the most recent one. If you have an EVGA account, you can also post on the warranty section there, and the RMA Manager pops in quite often to help people out in this exact sort of situation.

They don't like to see people lose performance :-)

I am pretty sure my suggestion was a joke.
post #20147 of 21377
Could use some help guys, I have a 780 ti classy. At some point my fan speeds started going at 100% or near it at all times. But nvidia inspector tells me that it is set to 35%.... updating drivers did not fix the problem. any advice?
post #20148 of 21377
Well I found the problem , I had installed a sound card and it sits right next to my card so one of the fans on the gpu was hitting the sound card so I just wasnt spinning up at all. So I fixed it, but when I manually set the fan speed to 100% the fan sounds a little weak. Any suggestions?

Hey, man, thanks for your help over on the eVGA forums. They've approved my request for a 2nd 980 Classy. Superb customer service.
