And yet not a peep from any of the trades about how EVGA has a half millimeter gap between their GPUs and the cold plate on their coolers (i.e. without any TIM >zero< heat is being transfered). Guess ad dollars speak louder than informing people. But let’s shill some overpriced grease for them.

Is this a common issue? I searched for it on google and the EVGA forums and found only one example of this happening.

If this is an issue in all of their cards, wouldn't it be noticed in reviews as causing over-heating/throttling ?

- Big difference between a design flaw and an occasional (solitary?) QC issue.

I couldn't find the reference to the ABYSMAL thermal transfer performanced mentioned by Neils, but if 1.5W/mK is true, then they seriously need to have a re-think on this stuff! That woould rank as attrociously BAD, and one of THE worst performers on the market. And the joke of a 'comparison' chart is really laughable - compared to WHAT exactly - Plasticine? EVGA need to explain themselves.
