The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 featuring EVGA ACX 3.0 cooling has arrived. This new graphics card features NVIDIA's new "Pascal" graphics processor which is the most advanced gaming GPU ever created. This breakthrough GPU delivers industry-leading performance, innovative new gaming technologies, and immersive next-gen VR. These cards also feature EVGA ACX 3.0 cooling technology. EVGA ACX 3.0 once again brings new and exciting features to the award winning EVGA ACX cooling technology. SHP 2.0 gives increased heat pipes and copper contact area for cooler operation, and optimized fan curve for even quieter gaming. Of course, ACX 3.0 coolers also feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU. Select EVGA ACX 3.0 models will even feature a 10CM fan and RGB LED, allowing complete control over the color from EVGA PrecisionX OC.

I was able to slightly overclock it as well while changing the fan curve so I was able to get the card to run cooler while running faster. The fans are super quiet compared to the rest of my fans, so it makes no difference for me to run these fans at 100% all the time to give it a slight overclock just for fun and to ensure it stays cool. Thankfully I did this since apparently these cards have a heat issue if purchased before November 1st 2016. EVGA has a BIOS fix that basically changes the fan curve to provide proper cooling to prevent overheating. They also offer an optional thermal pad kit for free. Just register your GTX 1080 card on their website and search their page for "thermal kit" and you will find a place to request the free kit. I haven't received mine yet, but sounds simple enough. Overall I'm just glad they owned up to the issue and are providing a solution. I have a mini-ITX build with a Corsair 380T portable case. The way it is laid out makes my Corsair H100iv2 liquid cooler fans blow directly on the back of my GTX 1080, so I think both my fan curve on the card and having fans blowing directly on the back of the card saved my card from overheating like others have been known to do. Just to be safe though I am still going to install the thermal kit and update the card's BIOS. It sucks when issues like this happen, but it is not necessary to avoid EVGA all-together. They fixed the issue and made it known. They didn't try to cover up the issue by blaming some type of user error on customers. If you bought the card before November 1st like me just go to their website for instructions on how to update the BIOS and request a free thermal kit. They said their new cards shipping out will already come with the updated BIOS and thermal kit already attached. If you are buying the card after November 1st 2016 you shouldn't have to worry.
Update November 22 2016 -
I received the Thermal Mod Kit that I requested on November 7th. Took a couple weeks, but that's fine. I just installed it today. It took me a couple hours since I read instructions over an over when I really don't want to screw something up on a $650 piece of hardware. I have read on EVGA's FAQ though that they if you mess up on the installation they will replace your card, so I wasn't too worried. I don't see how you can mess it up though unless you drop it or forget to re-apply the thermal paste on the GPU. I could probably do the whole process again without the instructions in about 15 minutes if I were helping a friend. It is really easy. They send instructions with pictures in color that are very easy to see and read. The installation requires you to take apart the whole graphics card to where the graphics processor is exposed. The vRAM is right next to it which is the main issue with the recall. The vRAM got too hot for some people. They provide new thermal pads to cover the vRAM after you peel off the old ones. They also include other thermal pads to increase thermal flow between other components on the graphics board and the aluminum backing. The vRAM thermal pads are really all you need, but since they included the extra thermal pads I figured why not install them. It didn't take much effort to do anyways and if it makes my GPU cooler that's even better. In the kit EVGA provided the thermal paste in a small plastic container. I don't know if it was silicon based or the silver type. Since I build a lot of computers for family and friends I happened to have the Arctic Silver thermal paste on hand that is really great for processors, so I figured why not put it on my GPU since I have to re-apply something to it anyways. In reality the Arctic Silver paste will really only reduce temperatures by 1-2 degrees so it isn't crucial to have the best stuff on it. After everything was completed I noticed my maxed out gaming temperatures were reduced by 5 degrees Celcius based on my gameplay in Overwatch. I play on a 1440p monitor on Epic settings (the highest possible settings) at 122% resolution scaling. I get about 85-90 FPS and out of the box the card hung around 82 degrees Celcius. I overclocked the card slightly and adjusted the fan curve to spin faster even at lower temperatures since the noise is minimal and i'm wearing headphones anyways. After overclocking and increasing fan speeds my temperature stays at 72 degrees Celcius on max settings. After this Thermal mod kit and thermal paste upgrade my card plays continuously on max settings at 67 degrees Celcius all while enjoying the same maxed out graphics levels. That is pretty darn good for a fan cooled card. I could probably overclock it more if I wanted to, but this card is already so fast I don't think I would notice a difference.
Even though my card was part of a recall for a heat issue I never noticed or had a problem with I am not unhappy with EVGA. They corrected the problem with a BIOS update, but they offered the optional free Thermal Kit for those who wanted extra security. I like the peace of mind knowing my card is running at its coolest possible temperature and I definitely liked getting permission from EVGA to take apart a graphics card without voiding a warranty and being promised a replacement if anything goes wrong. It was actually fun for me to install. I like taking things apart to see how they work especially if you can improve it in the process which this definitely did. Go buy one now!
I was very pleased with the looks of this card, and with the size. It's not small by any means, but it's shorter than I thought and easily fit in my Corsair 540 case. Just make sure you have two 8-pin power connectors, and a good quality 600w PSU.
Performance wise, I was blown away. I test played BF4 for almost 3 hours after getting everything installed and updated, and I'm talking about on a Dell 27" 4k IPS monitor. I got a solid and rock steady 60FPS on BF4 with all Ultra settings (no V-Sync either) in 4k!. It's bumping up against or matching the refresh rate of 60Hz obviously, but the frame rate didn't dip or drop down. It was weird like the card was actually being held back by the 4K monitor's 60Hz refresh. Astounding. Very impressed. The card's clock seems to boost automatically to over 2000MHz and is very quiet. I mean really almost completely silent. EVGA updated their Precision X "OC" app for Pascal, and it works great. This card runs very cool. While gaming with a 55% fan profile, the card stayed in the low to mid 60s (C) and was silent. This is a very attractive card and the backplate looks great too. You can use the Precision X app to set the RGB colors and make them kind of pulsate with several different colors. It's pretty cool.
Yes this is a high end card and its pricey even at it's "regular" price. But if you can afford it, it is well worth the money. I love this card. Can't wait to really start putting it through some paces and benching. I hear no coil whine, nor see any other issues with this card. Nvidia hit the nail on the head with this one.
One thing I will say about this price gouging - just try and wait it out. I got lucky and paid retail price of $679.99 plus shipping- but it was just right place right time kind of deal. Like I said, I just got lucky. If you wait a month or so, these $800 prices will drop.
Don't write this card off. It is awesome!
Then a tragic day struck where my GPU started to smoke. Yes, it literally caught fire in my case. Was watching youtube before I slept and my computer shut down. After freaking out, I angrily called customer support. Usually I'm really calm in these situations, but I was caught off guard and I was a dick when I didn't need to be. The guy I contacted audibly sipped his coffee after listening to me bitch and said, "No problem man, what's your address? We'll ship you a new one." I was shocked. I dealt with really bad customer support recently, so I was expecting to have to fight tooth and nail for a new GPU.
Nope, that's wrong, I simply just called, sent my GPU in and got a new one back. It took a little bit, but there rules made sense and the guy ended up cheering me up and getting me to laugh over the phone.
BASICALLY! The EVGA customer support is hands down the best computer hardware customer support I've ever dealt with. Easiest, coolest, and fastest. On top of having such an amazing card. If you're considering this, then get it. Obviously the TI version is out and everyone wants that, but hell, I love my 1080
