EVGA motherboards have not been that great ever since the z/87/97/x79 platform?

I may have referenced my ASUS MB, but I voted for EVGA 980 Tis.

Is it not that MSI version of 980 Ti has somewhat disappointing cooler? Yes, it is silent, but under load it runs at 80 degree celsius. This is what i saw in topics around here and on other sites.

Let's say if i dont' want to OC it, what temperatures can i expect. Around 70 would be perfect in demanding games (Witcher 3, etc on 1080p or 1440p).

The more and more i research these cards, the less i want to buy one of them and just wait for pascal frown.gif For a cards which cost around 800-850€ (at least here) there are some really stupid negative sides. Card which costs so much shouldn't have any problems with coil whine or running on 80 celsius on stock or slight OC. (whats the shortcut for celsius, alt +??? biggrin.gif)

My pal has that card and I was surprised to hear he says it is super noisy when working hard.
I just use a capital C for celsius. Need it over here in europe a lot.

Need help on deciding on my next 980 ti card, Asus Strix, MSI Lighting, EVGA Classified

All I care about is raw OC Gaming power

Will be on Air and then putting under water in a few months

Asus PG278Q ROG Swift 27" 2560x1440 TN G-Sync

Whats Your Vote?

Lol if only raw OC Power and water cooling- Gigabyte G1 Gaminng 980 Ti hands down. Currently it is best overclocking card from all non-reference 980 Ti (apart from KINGPIN and Lightning, but those are for LN2 cooling). Rest cards you mentioned are more silent (and EVGA support tongue.gif). But if we are talking about RAW OC- Gigabyte all the way.

Not to mention they have best stock cooler in terms of temps and EK released waterblocks for it so you are settled here for water cooling.

Currently on average Gigabyte has best OC results. MSI Lightning (and KINGPIN) is useless for you since you will go water. Lightnings are for LN2 cooling. You won't get more from Lightning then from Gigabyte on water.

If somehow you would not like to take Gigabyte, I would take Classified for EVGA support.

My opinion. You can drop to Gigabyte thread and check that those cards are beats and easly achieve minimum of 1500 on core any day.

Thanks for the heads up.

With your help, seems it's down to 2 now.

Classified, warranty and support
G 1 Gaming, price and O/C

Top stuff 😆

That was exactly my dilemma. In the end I went with Gigabyte and no regrets. Card is quiet (subjective, I know), looks great and allows you (as only one apart from KINGPIN) to customize your LED "WINDFORCE" logo to 7 different colors to match your RIG. It OC like beats and keeps great temps.

Classified has also good looks and best support, but apart from that- everything else Gigabyte is better. And you just have so easy time to OC Gigabyte. No need for any flashing BIOS or anything. Mostly you just move some sliders more or less and boom! 1500 on ease.

I had previousy EVGA cards, but know I am just amazed with Gigabyte 980 Ti.

There are always two things to consider, temps and noise. If the Palit is less noisy but the PCB is above 90°C at this clock, its insufficient.
My GPU stays below 75°C during benchmarks while maintaining a good noise profile and the PCB does stay in normal temperature regions.
The PCB on the 980Ti tends to get very hot when overclocked, which makes sufficient cooling extremely important.

Its quite a difference in noise and only +1C 2C to heat, and with 1515Mhz
