It was like the limit never lifted.

Then you applied the mod incorrectly.

That's the one I was considering to make things easier but I have been sticking with EVGA since I had a problem with MSI RMA that I had to go thru.

Also trying to get an idea of what kind of clocks people are getting on water, from what I have read already not much of a difference from air. I would WC the card anyways as I already have a full custom setup.

I was thinking about the EVGA FTW 1080 because of the extra 8-pin power connector, not sure if that will help the OC though. The heatsink/fan means nothing to me since I will be WC it anyways.

Join the club, I dumped my fire breathing dragons in favor of the 1080 for the same reasons. 295X2 + 290X may have been more power when tri-fire worked properly but all that heat, power consumption and needing an extra radiator just was an annoyance. Frankly multi-gpu setups aren't good enough and aren't supported properly enough yet. Was the same for my GTX 690. So for the foreseeable future I am sticking to single powerful GPUs.

Just tried the HOF bios on my gigabyte G1 and now the gpu won't post past error 62 on the ASUS RE10 motherboard and Z170 MOCF.
Maybe just a bad flash on my part but be careful guys when you flash a non reference gpu bios.

Obviously.

I think you're all a bit naive for flashing BIOSES. None of you have any idea what you're actually doing to the card.

Learn how to solder and watercool. Not flash BIOSES from completely different cards from different PCB's for god sakes.

This is not the first time I've said this.

I would agree with them giving more performance, 2.0 definitely did not have such a wide spectrum of conditions. It's currently not working out for the enthusiasts though.

If there is any merit to 39c throttling we are effed. 39c is impossible to hold on air/water under load. Without a doubt.

Err, for enthusiasts, wait: isn't this a good thing? We get higher clocks, if we go lower. You don't have to get to 39C; every 3-5C apparently helps.

Maybe I'm thinking about this in a weird way. In my mind, it's like if Intel let your 4.4GHz i7-5930K boost to 4.8GHz if you kept the temperature below 50C. When you went over 50C, you went back to your normal OC. I mean, like a Turbo Boost on top of your overclock.

It's just that NVIDIA's choice of 39C as the start point is....curiously low.

True. But, I think 39C is only for the highest bins. Seems like every 3-5C you can drop, you gain another 13MHz.

Just upgraded from a Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.5GHz to a Core i5-4670K @ 4.5GHz

As I said earlier....it just reinforces what a lot of us already knew. The cooler you keep them, the higher they'll clock.

Pretty easy to figure out. Maxwell was the same way. Keep a 980ti cooler than 30c peak, your chances of reaching 1600 increase exponentially.

Has anyone redone the TIM (thermal paste) on the EVGA 1080 FTW to see if it helps? Was considering doing this while I wait for the waterblock to come. I know it helped a lot on my 780ti but I think they have started to use better paste since then. Could be wrong but heard it was shin etsu now.
