EVGA Releases Patch to Stop GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 Cards From Catching Fire


EVGA has released a bios update for its GeForce GTX 1080, 1070, and 1060 graphics cards, after some users reported that their cards overheated and sometimes caught on fire.

Recently, it was reported from several sources, including Tom’s Hardware Germany, that the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW PWM and memory temperature was running warmer than expected during Furmark (an extreme stress utility). It was found that the card reached up to 107 degrees Celsius, or 224 degrees Fahrenheit, when put under the Furmark stress test. Regular users also started reporting that their PCs were overheating, and their EVGA cards were smoking and starting on fire.

EVGA investigated the reports and acknowledged that during testing, the thermal temperature of the PWM and memory, in extreme circumstances, "was marginally within spec" and needed to be addressed.

To resolve this, EVGA has released a VBIOS update, which adjusts the fan-speed curve to ensure sufficient cooling of all components across all operating temperatures.

EVGA is also offering optional thermal pads for users who don’t feel a VBIOS update is sufficient.

The company offers full warranty support on its products, with cross-ship RMA.
