Be Warned,

Nvidia GTX 1080 & 1070 EVGA Cards Reportedly Catching Fire & Dying Due To Overheating VRMs

Thankfully, EVGA has acknowledged the issue and has already implemented changes to the production line. Namely quipping all of its future graphics cards with VRM thermal pads to combat the issue. The company admitted that the lack of VRAM & VRM cooling was an oversight and has promised to honor warranties.

It is currently offering existing GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 owners a VRM thermal pad kit for free, which you can get here. Alternatively, users have the option to return their graphics cards directly to EVGA in exchange for a card with the thermal mod already installed.
