but I wonder, if need be, could I double up on the pads too?

This may be a silly question, but better safe than sorry.

I finished my build earlier today, just didn't have time to install drivers before leaving for work. I could flash the skyn3t bios before I even install drivers, couldn't I?

Air cooled. I've seen many people here with the same card talking about 1250-1280 on air.
No dust present since the card is brand new (5-6 weeks old).
I got a Define R4 so very little dust should accumulate inside the case.

IMO, get the Classifieds, (Voltage control up to 1.500V), water them, OC them to 1400mhz and forget about Maxwell all together! tongue.gif


Cheers

(Team skyn3t)
Any idea on how do reinstall DX and .Net on a Win8.1 machine? :s
Hehe going to Classy on water seems very expensive smile.gif If I'm lucky I'd get 622€ for my card and a classy is 720€ something in EVGA shop. And I have no idea how much water costs.

Ed, do you know if graphics card performance can degrade over time? I've run my card on stock BIOS and stock voltages (1,625) all the time.

I haven't tried a rollback yet however.
Yea those drivers were really nasty! Im starting to wonder if the anti-vir I got messed up the driver installation.

Yes you could double up, that's exactly what I did on my card.
I use 2 layers of 1mm thickness thermal pads between the BACKside of my card at the vrm area to make contact with the EK backplate smile.gif
That way the backplate also 'sucks' out heat from the vrm area, in addition to having the 'front' of the card watercooled thumb.gifsmile.gif
And you could also use a little thermal paste between the pads, although they are sticky enough by themselves.

As a constant reader of this Thread over the last few weeks now, i still feel that i could not Flash my GPU'S to the skyn3t Bios.

Due to my total lack of how to do this and the fear that i could end up Bricking my 780 TI's.

Yes i have downloaded the Advice and the Bios as well, but that is as far as i have got to.

What's the point to this post, is do you take the risk with £1200.00 worth of kit?

If you have no idea what you are trying to do??

Respectfully,

AJ.

if i was to purchase another 780 Ti, could i just buy a reference cooler EVGA SC, instead of buying another ACX cooler as the other 2 i have are ACX cooler versions underwater, im sure they'll work fine, but will the vios be different and need to be different for the Reference cooler version? if so i'll just buy another ACX for simplicity.

Yes, a reference 780 Ti would work in SLI with the EVGA ACX versions, and yes, the reference card would need the reference bios.

Does anyone know which OS is best for benchmarking in Fire Strike? From what I see on the top 100, majority of the top scores are 8.1 with classic windows enabled?

Also, is there any data on which driver currently seems to give the best results too? I looked again at the top 100 and I see a lot of 331.82.

Lastly, is there anything else I can do to increase my scores besides setting my theme to classic windows?

Thanks.
