    Just need to disable UEFI boot for PCI-E devices.

    See the 8th post here: https://forums.geforce.com/default/t...21538/#4921538

    Anyway back on topic. Those getting FTWs and SCs now let us know how you get on with your over clocks in the owners thread :)

    To be honest man, it's not even something I've given a second thought to, as I've never even attempted using the box via a DP adaptor, as I keep the Vive to a separate system with a 980ti (though that'll be a 1080 as soon as EVGA get their StepUp program together)..........good to know there's somewhat of a fix in place for those affected though.

    when you use HDMIs inside it will disable 2 of DP . so you need to make sure you connect your monitor ( one HDMI or first DP ) only the first 2 ports and DVI you see in picture

    What a complete fail this launch has been, especially for EVGA, their reputation has taken a massive hit off the back of this complete shambles.

    EVGA has been ten thousand times better than asus. No info at all on when I will receive my strix 1080

    Agreed.

    They were number one on my list, so glad I changed and went with Zotac instead.

    Everyone seems to be able to build cards and ship them, everyone except EVGA.

    Couple that with funny statements that apparently EVGA shipped more cards than any other company when we all knew no one in UK has even seen a single EVGA card.

    Not sure what's going on with them. Let's just hope it's a hiccup and they recover the ground and reputation they lost.

    They do have a few good things going for them, UK centre, Step up but that's not enough to ignore the most important thing which is the actual delivery of the product ...

    Did the Gaming X come in and go out of stock again?

    Is it profit if the value of that £ price is only worth the same or less in buying power? :)

    People keep writing this but it's obviously not true.

    Are you going to stop buying graphics cards now? Obviously not. Are EVGA in any materially worse position than any of their competitors? Not really.

    Supply is thin everywhere, cards are flying off the shelves faster than they can be put on them. This is probably one of the most successful launches in history and I'm sure NVIDIA's reports will bear that out.

    Fact - EVGA as well as Asus have been an utter shambles in the UK at least, and I believe wider Europe!

    Other vendors have shipped a lot of non founders cards, as can be seen from out own 1080 owners thread. EVGA and Asus, nothing! Although EVGA are starting to trickle through.

    You can buy direct from EVGA on their website. If placing an order on OcUK I'd pay with Amazon so they won't take your money until they have a card for you.

    Has there been any news on why only 40 SC's turned up today rather than the promised 50?

    Well that's pretty disappointing. I guess my X34a will have to stay in it's box for yet another week.

    I assume someone over Ben decided to divert the 10 units elsewhere.
