980 KPE blocks do not fit - Page 8

post #71 of 76
Thread Starter 
Honesty if your just going to be on water, you should of just stayed away from the kpe and gotten the classy. I learned that lesson myself thumb.gif

I seriously considered it especially cause I didnt agree with the asic promo the difference in prices is way to great.
Theres several reasons the classy is not for me. One being EVGA not using Samsung memory. My last kingpin did fine on water. You cant believe everything you hear.

The only 980ti using Samsung is the KPE. I would have to find the post, but it was said all other cards were Hynix. The MSi lightning supposedly has hynix, except for the test pieces going to reviewers, which are said to possibly be Samsung so that they get better reviews.

The 780ti is a completely different overclocking beast on water than the 980 or 980ti. On water, the 9xx classified/KPE just don't gain enough.. They truly have to be cold to get the best out of them...

I know the kingpin is the only graphics card using Samsung, thats one of the reasons posted above for not getting a classy instead, as nycgtr suggested.
I understand that any gpu is gonna perform much better sub zero but its just not for me, Im sure its loads of fun, I love to stress a gpu with benchmarks. Im just not ready to put a $1000 card through all that. I saved for 2+ months to get it, dont wanna expose it to that much abuse, moisture, voltage etc. And I like to keep the resale value up as I like to upgrade often. With that being said not sure what it will be worth in a year when HBM2 cards are out from Nvidia.

Well a year from now the price will have gone down just like with any tech. But I think you might still be able to get decent return price wise due to the card being a Kingpin gpu, There will always be someone out there that will want one I would think but I could be wrong also smile.gif
