Mr. Skupples, I was wondering what TIM you have on your Titans right now. I am about to reTIM mine and I was wondering how well it is holding up. Also as I search, I thought you had the XSPC waterblocks on your Titans.

I recommend GELID GC Extreme thermal compound.

i'm running all copper EK short blocks. I was using Cool Labs Liquid Ultra, then noticed it didn't get along with pure copper. Switched to PK3, noticed ~3C increase, across all three units, so went back to CLU, the galium eating the copper, no big deal. rolleyes.gif

Hello my fellow Titan holders, I have loved the day I joined the Titan team 1 1/2 years later this thread single handedly made me spend 4k to find out my great system only took 3 titans, to selling mine and finding out that I broke Even.

So my black friday slight upgrade craze came on, and I thought I would be going broke upgrade... Well as we know there are no new titans and the 980 / new revamped Titan Black 2(my way of calling their new upcoming release) is a joke....

So what to do, I have a slight problem I posted in another thread since I cant get my Creative Omni to to give me the option to "Balance the Volume" so I figured I would upgrade.

Would love your guys input on new speakers:

It's a bit Off Topic but whom else would I ask but other than my fellow HARD CORE enthusiasts:thumb:gunner.gif Would really appreciate the input since I just spent the last 5 hrs trying to get the balance function work.

Sorry for the ladies but down in the big city its beneficial to put the sound to one speaker for those "special occasions" 8-)

Love you guys, and sorry for the inebriated message have been up since 8am yesterday... Occam Twins... Port.... Christmas Market adventure coming!

Having more VRAM and DP capability is beneficial. With more VRAM you can run larger tasks, and with DP you will have better accuracy. That's really what you're looking for out of a workstation. Sometimes SP vs DP won't matter, and SP may be sufficient for your task. But if you're doing a final production run on anything, you're probably going to use DP anyway.

It's almost like in real life, from physics, we have equations that work well to describe the macro world around us (single precision) but as you shrink down and get more fine, they start to break down, and then require better (double precision) equations to be correct. Ok, that's not the perfect analogy but same thing applies in my engineering simulations. Coarse mesh = SP is sufficient, where as fine mesh I start to see the computer round off errors show up in SP vs DP calculations. It doesn't change the result too dramatically though.

As Mrtooshort eloquently answered already, the 980 and Titan are very similar in terms of raw performance potential (of course the 980 has big advantages in temperature and power efficiency as is to be expected). Another factor to consider when comparing gaming/benching scenarios is game/bench specific. For example, the Titan does far better in the Unigine benches than the 980 does while Maxwell cleans Kepler's clock in the Futuremark benches. In general, I typically recommend Maxwell for new, single-GPU builds as it really is a great card with lots of OC potential and low temps/power usage but I just don't see the 980 as a good "upgrade option from things like GK110 or even Hawaii cards. Just not impressive enough performance to justify the expense in my opinion.

As Mrtooshort already mentioned, this supposes that gaming is your only concern. There are other applications where Titan with its 6GB of VRAM can be beneficial.
