Nvidia’s newest Pascal architecture has been quite popular since its release, offering significant performance gains at relatively reasonable prices. The GTX 1080, 1070, and 1060 GPUs, in particular, have become the choice of gamers at all price points.

All of the major GPU OEMs have adopted the Pascal line with a slew of different options, including highly overclocked versions meant to squeeze out the most performance. As it happens, not every OEM design has been without its issues, as manufacturer EVGA’s GTX 1080 and 1070 cards have been suffering from some serious overheating, Wccftech reports.

The issue has been showing up in a variety of venues, including EVGA’s forum and a number of PC subreddits, where users are reporting literal flameouts in their EVGA cards. Although the number of reports of actual flames shooting out of their GPUs is limited, there has also been reports of smoke, sparks, and generally unusual high temperatures.
