This isn't actually the first Intel-exclusive game content. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood disabled fast galloping when riding your horse, unless you had an Intel SSD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHrqlV00sLY And of course it was total bull, because all the game did was gauge your loading times, and enabled galloping if it loaded quickly enough, even if you used a HDD:...
I want to change the forums' date format from MM/DD to DD/MM. How do I do that?
http://cdn.videocardz.com/1/2016/06/MSI-GTX-1080-review-vs-retail.jpg As you can see, the retail card's boost clock is at 1823MHz, whereas the review sample's boost clock is at 1848MHz. At first, it looks obvious that MSI has given a "modified" card to the reviewer. However, if you look at MSI's website, the card is advertised to have a 1847MHz boost clock: https://us.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GTX-1080-GAMING-X-8G.html#hero-specification TechpowerUp's card is 1MHz...
So, has anyone managed to reach 2114MHz at 67C yet?

There's no such guide, to be honest, but it's not that complicated. Firstly, check your boost clocks. If it's around 1440MHz like mine, start with a 60MHz increase in core clock and a 300MHz increase in the memory clock, and leave voltage alone. Try to find the highest possible core clock without increasing voltage, and work your way up (or down) from there. Also, set the power limit to the maximum. The Xtreme has a pretty generous maximum TDP of 390W which technically...
Most EU countries allow unconditinal returns of products within a set time period (it's two weeks here in the UK), so long as it is kept in as-new condition. I'd personally return a card within this period (as I did with my old G1) if it didn't overclock well. You don't need more than a few days to max out your overclock, given how quick and easy software overclocking is these daysThis is also one of the reasons I shy away from used or B-stock graphics cards, because I...
Do let us know just how good the temp decrease is.
While I have not owned a Lightning, I'm fairly sure that the Xtreme's stock cooler is not as good as the Lightning's. The latter is a wider, taller, and longer card, with a bigger heatsink. Given the same frequencies and power draw, the Lightning should be a little cooler and quieter. The Lightning also has certain features like memory overvolting and VRM temperature monitoring that almost no other 980 Tis have (I believe the Kingpin and HoF cards support this as well)....
Hm, that does complicate matters a little. How do I even know how thick the new thermal pads need to be? Take apart the card, measure the thickness of the existing pads, order new ones, then wait a few days for them to arrive while the card lies there in an unusable state?
