Thank you so much! I've heard of people talking about that with power supplies but never with video cards. Crazy stuff.

It should be something with the card itself, header not seated in, broken/frayed wire, or seized up fans. If the wiring itself is in good shape, wires in the connector pins look good & the connector is in the header properly, not much else can be done besides replace the cooler.

Well I do have one option still open. Since I got one card that the system can't see but the fans work fine and another card the system recognizes and works with but the fans are DOA then.... I bet you can see where I'm going with this wink.gif

What I need to know is if EVGA is going to give me any flack with swapping the fan assembly. Also need to know if that entails also removing the heatsinks and having to apply thermal paste again. If so I'd rather not bother going through all that. I can and did it with my CPU but not really feeling that whole procedure. Just want to replace the fan assembly. Any videos or FAQ's on removing the fan around?

The cooler should just be 4 screws at the back, the heatplate doesn't need to be removed. You will have to apply new thermal paste on the gpu core.
Evga is good with cooler removal, as long as the card is in full factory condition (the same as it came out of the box when new) RMA shouldn't be a problem.

There is also one more screw on the top of the cooler where the cooler extends above the PCB that has to be removed in order to remove the cooler.

I don't have a classified, all my other non-reference coolers have just been the 4 screw type, thanks for the heads up!

In the process of removing it now and see what you guys are talking about. No easy way out!mad.gifmad.gif
I called them up a little while ago and they said the same thing you guys said. At this point I'm really getting heated, no pun intended.
I'm just wondering why I'm over playing manufacturer on almost twelve hundred dollars worth of hardware that's supposed to be top of the line.
Just venting right now fellas. Back to the operation, I'll let you guys know how it goes.

UPDATE: Come to find out the fan was NOT connected. It was pretty much just jammed in there and looked connected as it was pressed up against the circuit board. I didn't need to swap fans after all but I did have to remove the whole cooler assembly. Fans are working correctly now. I jumped them up to 100 percent to see if I could hear them and they passed muster. So now I can at least get to enjoy the card. I gotta admit though this whole thing has taken alot of the biggrin.gif out of me for sure. I'm gonna have to put a word in with EVGA and voice some displeasure from this whole ordeal. A broken card first then another one that needed an "assembly required" sticker on it. Not a good track record for trying to win a customer over to the green team. I was seeing red and not AMD if you know what I mean. mad.gif

Ive done everything to try to lower my SLI temps. I even jimmy rigged a 120mm fan on, which only made my top go to 78c. -_-.

I have 78c reguardless of 1.75v vs 1.212v too lol


Also, my new card back from RMA doesnt like my second PCI-e slot for some reason, It wont be recongized in the bios unless I have the pc sideways. but if i have this card as the first card it runs fine reguardless...weirdness

Would love to be added to the list.

780 Classified under water with EK block. Passively cooling VRM with Enzotech MOS-C1 heatsinks. Backplate installed with help from BGKris.

Looking to be stable at 1267/3104 @ 1.21V running skyn3t's LN2 bios and a night of testing. Temps hover around 42-45C (22C over ambient). thumb.gif

Will take some better pictures once I get a second radiator and light strips.


EDIT: Forgot one of the block.... This was of my previous card (and worse VRM cooling) that had major issues with display corruption on POST after benchmarking for a few hours (***?)
