not stable


I get the error Kernel-Power 41

I try to increase the Vcore?

I would just keep it at 4.4GHz You are lucky at 1.32v for 4.4GHz, IF you are stable.

Unfortunately it comes with the price of a arm and a leg at the moment due to Nvidia effectively paper launching the 1080 and the 1070, price gouging, Founders Edition being the available first and limited supplies.

I would love to give an unbiased review, but the prices are just to high for me to justify the GTX 1080\FE purchase. When I purchase things I'm using my own money with ZERO help. So that's no Patreon support or anything like that. I'm thinking about picking up a much cheaper 3rd party RX 480 overclocked for benchmarking. it's cost effective and I won't suffer a greater than $700 loss lol. In the future I'm thinking about building a i7-6700K rig for gaming benchmarking purposes. We need more unbiased reviews for sure. Hopefully by then I'll find away to get funding to help for future benchmarks.

From what I have been reading about the GTX 1080 it has it's fair share or problems like many GPUs:
https://forums.geforce.com/default/board/172/

Off the top of my head:
Pros:
-Great DX11 performance across all resolutions.
-DX12 improvements due to the massive increase in core clock.
-4K is very playable, but not quite 60fps which the requirement for many people.
-Memory Speed is very high out of the box [10Gbps!]
-Still overclocker friendly, even for novices.
-It is the best GPU in the market at the moment as far as FPS performance goes.

Cons:
-Only supports a 256-bit Memory Interface. That's the same as the GTX 980 from 2014
-DX12 still shows negative scaling. Little or no performance increases.
-Like Maxwell, Pascal Async Drivers are still nowhere to be found. [Drivers won't help it though]
-Heat is an issue and the card throttles as low as 40c. That's very low. Hopefully 3rd parties have a solution.
-Claims 1733Mhz, but doesn't average this number during actual gaming sessions [read below]
-After playing a game for more than 10-20 minutes the GPU only averages 1667Mhz or lower thanks to throttling heat issues. Core clock is 1607Mhz by the way.
-Founder Edition = Reference Card for a premium price = Enough Said
-Only supports 2-way SLI officially

Overall a solid card, but far from a 100% GPU. There's a lot of great things and bad things surrounding the GTX 1080.


In the meantime I'm still running 4K benchmarks with my Fury X. I'm going to be uploading some gameplay videos with the FPS showing to show people my 4K experience since I'm always talking about how smooth and great my 4K experience has been in several games. I'm guessing I'll have to record off-screen.


Thanks for the reply. That's interesting about the base GPU clock. My 670 boosts to 1205 but only when it's loaded. I rarely see it. I've got the memory clocked ~ 500MHz + over base - 7.2GHz It's actually a nice improvement. I've never overclocked any of my GPUs till a few days ago, lol.

Might as well always overclock the RAM, it's usually pretty easy to find the limit and if you don't touch the voltage then you won't blow it up.

Most GPUs benefit significantly from RAM overclocks.

Core...another story.

No problem man. There are other issues surrounding the card like Nvidia showing the card hit a very high OC while staying relatively cool, but after reviews came out this was not the case. It made some people upset because some people just want to know the truth before spending $600 - $700 or more on a GPU.

I suppose overclocking isn't always necessary. I normally run my Fury X at stock and get great results. I retired my dual GTX 670s 2-way SLI. They were the reference 2GB versions and just couldn't stand up to the competition and gaming sessions after late 2014. Games started requiring more RAM and 2GBs just wasn't going to cut it for 1440p\4K. I can't remember the boost or anything like that, but it was a reference version so I'm sure it wasn't that high. I OC'd them a few times for benchmarking purposes.

I might overclock my Fury X again.

the system is free of errors after 2 hours of linx .
to 99 % it is stable

The W3680 and W3690 are unlocked. Not every board model will see them as unlocked for whatever reason, probably because Xeons are not officially supported would be my guess.

you know someone who uses a series P6T motherboard with a w3680 cpu?

Not exactly... I do have a W3690 and a P6T SE, just not in the same rig. I have a X5660 in the P6T SE. I could try swapping the CPUs and seeing if its unlocked, if you'd like. The W3690 is sitting in a RIIIE.
post #7160 of 7924
So I'm debating just to keep up for a little bit moving from my single X5650 to a twin X5690 rig. My concerns surround the upcoming titles and is DX11 going to be dropped or legacy supported? The 900 series didn't appeal to me and now the 1080 series is doing just that too


Time to finally move to AMD? I just don't know anymore frown.gif

I here DX12 has some massive jumps in perf for us with lots of cores
