Self immolation is a tough way to go out, but we have to give it up to this EVGA 2080 Ti XC video card owned by HardOCPer shansoft. He was simply browsing the web, undoubtedly adding to his HardForum post count, when all of a sudden his computer shut down for no good reason, and then flames started shooting out the back of his EVGA 2080 Ti XC video card. We are sure that a flaming EVGA video card is a pretty good reason for your computer shutting down unexpectedly. At least when my personal RTX 2080 Ti failed, it did not try to burn my house down. In totally unrelated news, EVGA has started selling discount fire insurance this week (get it while it's hot) through its RMA department.

All these pictures are large resolution so you can see the carnage. He does have a few more in his HardForum thread.

Scared the shit out of me since my kid was right around it when it shoots flame.
