The average is what is the bad part, pal. The spikes are irrelevant as many guys here told, but you stay ignorant. We provided you with a video of PCPer where they explain this in every detail. Yet you stay ignorant and go on in your story.

To still hit on the ASUS GTX960 STRIX although the story has beeen debunked show me how either uninformed, stubborn or borderline fanboy you are. To explicitly mention Nvidia here gives me a clue. Seems to be a heavy agenda of yours.

Dude, you are hilarious! No 750 Ti was ever out of PCIe-Specification. The average of the power over the 12V-PCIE-lanes is what matters. it has a limit of 66W of the 12V and 7,9W (rounded down) over the 3.3V. The 12V over PCI-SLOT is where the RX480 has its problems. Instead of a maximum of 5.5 Ampere, the card draws 6 to 7.5 at Stock clocks. If you had a slight clue about electronics, you would know how devastating for hardware this is ... or at least can be.

If you had read the sources we provides you, that would have been clear to you. For the last time, here is the whole video explaining everything compressed in 30 minutes.

Tell me did you plan on buying one of these cards? or are you just White Knighting for all the plebs who have cheap motherboards/pre-builts that don't visit enthusiast forums?

Actually yes, I wanted to buy one. I already had one in my cart, but stopped because reference is always worse than AIB. Even if I know don't buy any RX480, I could still be effected. Yes, even then it will happen. Think about some of the careless persons here stressing their card over a longer time with the RX480 going overboard. The hardware components this guys use might be for sale on the used market some date in the future. What if you bought some of this potential flawed parts and the die really soon after my purchase?

Has anybody even thought about this as a consequence?
