Is there any reason to get this when I have a hybrid kit for the 1080 I can adapt?Any suggestions for installing the 1080 hybrid kit for the Ti? Should I be cutting the 1080 hybrid kit backplate to make it work with the Ti or do you use the Ti backplate and just install the waterblock portion? I guess it depends on how the Nvidia cooler disassembles with its fan location. Can the 1080 hybrid shroud be put back on with the Hybrid LED in white?
What kind of numbers can you expect on air? I think I got a dud overclocker, it only does +125 Mhz core and +550 memory. The boost is around to 1900 or so for the core, but I haven't tried running the fans at a constant 70-100% or anything else to see if it goes higher. If my card is that anemic, I dunno if it isn't worth bothering with a hybrid kit once they are finally released. Well it depends on what I do with my 1080 - I could sell it with the hybrid kit...
No slack. When I initially stress tested it, there was slack/gap and temps shot up to 100 C. But remounting it, now there is no slack and temps are in the 85-90 range, but they should be closer to 70 C when stress testing an overclock or perhaps lower. I'll have to give it a shake to see, but it looks like either RMA or try a different cooler. Wish I had done this within 30 days of purchase so I could just return it.
The pump is running full speed at 2910 rpm and I have no idea about air bubbles, but the water temperature will go from 30-31 idle to 35 C under load. That is the main problem - I have no idea if the H100i is defective and needs an RMA or if it just the mounting system and I need a different AIO cooler with better mounting. I wish I could just return it, but I never stressed it when I first got it. Instead, I just recently looked into it because I noticed gaming that...
I kept have to replace my D5 pump because after a few months (or 1.5 years in previous case) it would start to have massive amounts of vibrations that would drive me crazy. I couldn't figure out how to fix it so I got rid of my custom loop. Now, I've tried a Corsair H100i V2 and I'm getting horrible temps under load even when not overclocked. When not overclocked Intel XTU would go up to 75 C, and when overclocked I get temperatures in the 85-90 C range under load with...
So I have 30 days left on a potential EVGA Step-up, I'm currently running a 1070 GTX FTW edition and was thinking about stepping up to the 1080 GTX Gaming ACX 3.0 edition. Is it worth it? I decided to forgo SLI with my 1070 FTW since most EVGA 1070 FTW now come with Micron memory instead of Samsung memory found in the launch units (Micron on 1070s are either crappy overclockers or have voltage bug that still hasn't been fixed in firmware). Also, SLI doesn't look very...
Hah, I sympathize with you because I always lose the silicon lottery too. My 4770K only stably overclocks to 4.4 Ghz (I can get it to 4.6 Ghz but I want perfect stability), none of the video cards I have purchased have overclocked well, either AMD or Nvidia. I also had my first EVGA power supply fail even though they were rated one of the most reliable, but I RMA'd it and haven't had issues since (I think it has a 10 year warranty?).It seems normal for most 1070s to...
It's 99% likely that is the DPC Latency Issue. The beta 368.95 drivers have the DPC Latency fix for single cards. Not sure about the new drivers just released if they also include the fix, I know one of the leaked 369 drivers did not. But the newest driver is now 372.54 - anyone know if the DPC latency fix is included in this release?
Ah that's what I figured. Watercooling currently would only make sense for SLI configurations. And if I ever do go back to SLI, I'd likely only watercool the top card since the bottom one should have adequate air flow for proper cooling. Unless of course we get bios mods, then watercooling both cards could be beneficial.My two radiators are going to waste with only cooling the CPU . But buying a $130 waterblock (+$30? for backplate since I assume default backplate wont...
So the highest clock I've been able to stably get is 2075 Mhz core (+75 overclock on FTW edition 1070) and when the card gets hot (65+ C) in games it can drop to 2050 core. Does this mean water cooling would pretty much only give me the extra +25 core speed since extra voltage doesn't do much for these cards? If I try +100 overclock to get 2100 core, the game or benchmark will crash and I suspect better cooling wont do much. My card's temperature is usually around...
