So bought an Evga product for the first time new and was completely dissapointed it was doa. It is actually my first new product to ever come doa. I guess I have been lucky. I had bought a pny gtx 570 a few months ago when they first released and figured it was time to pair it. Kicked myself after I first bought it for not getting the Evga with the lifetime warranty but now am not so sure, considering that I have not had to rma the pny and, have had it oc'ed since day one to 1.1 volts.
Well since the pny cards are now non reference and I plan to put them underwater here eventually I wanted reference. So went for EVGA. Kinda bummed now. Was looking forward to some benching tonight.
That is all.
