What 980ti to get... evga hybrid? gigabyte gaming? - Page 3

post #21 of 34
Sorry op for stealing your topic a little, but to avoid spamming with the similar one im going to ask here.

Just when i dropped the idea of getting 980 Ti, i got a chance to get almost any brand new 980 Ti for half the price (except Lighting, Kingpin and and few more rare models like MSI Armor edition, etc).
I'm thinking of getting Palit 980 Ti Super JetStream. It seems like the golden middle. Silent, good cooling (better than MSI) and it's only 1 fps behind MSI and 5-6 after G1. What do you guys think?

To me it seems like all the rest have some bigger downside; G1 - high chance of coil whine, MSI - high temperatures, Zotac - fan problem, Strix had some cooling problems too, but they fixed it, but still it seems kinda hot. There is also Gainward's Ti, but don't knwo anything about them.

The only problem could be a warranty since i don't get the store's bill, only warranty list and i'm not sure if one is valid without the other.

I don't know from where are you buying it, but if it is retailer or some legit store then buy G1 or Zotac Extreme. G1s are imo best for OC and really, even if you get coil whine, just RMA and replace it. G1 is worth hassle, although mine didn't have any whine at all. Zotac is also great. Both brands has absolutly awesome temps on air, with OC and overvoltage.

If you are not buying from legit retailer (so you can't replace it) I would agree with you and get Palit as there is least chance for any issues with it.

But if possible- I would fight for G1 or Zotac. Cheers!

Why not the EVGA Hybrid card? smile.gif

It's from store, but without a bill, so i will get it "off the record", for a little higher price than they get it.

I bought mine the same way, without a bill, so without VAT, so total cost was 650€ instead of almost 800€ biggrin.gif

Total cost for me would be around 450-500€, depending on the model.
Oh and yes, Hybrid is out of the question, they don't have it.

That is a shame frown.gif Then the Super Jetstream is a very good option, I have a friend, who has 2 in SLI and says nothing but good things about them smile.gif

The Classy would reach 65-70C while running GTA 5, 1440p, but in order to keep it under 70 I had to set a custom fan curve which made the card the loudest component in my PC by far, and I aircool my CPU. So, in comparison, in the same chassis, the Hybrid is at least 20C cooler under load and much, much quieter.

How about when your not gaming?
I use my PC more than half the time for non-gaming and prefer it quiet during office work, etc.
My EVGA ACX fans shut completely "off" when temps drop, making my rig stone silent. To me, this is huge.
I heard that the hybrid radiator fan run 100% all the time. This would make it much too noisy.

You heard right, sadly it runs always at 100%, when connected through the GPU header, BUT when you connect it to the motherboard or fan controller instead, you can regulate it yourself, which I plan to do also smile.gif

I would have to say go with the Hybrid as well...

There is just so much going for it when compared with non-reference, "open face" cooler options:

1. Over clocks surprisingly well for a reference PCB...
2. Can be run at dead silent fan speeds while still maintaining great idle temps
3. Can be run at moderately silent fan speeds while still maintaining good load temps
4. Everything is powered off the PCI slot (pump, fans, etc.)
5. And even at full fan speed, it's more quiet than most other standard coolers and the load temps are just insanely good.
6. Reference fan still cools VRAM nicely
7. As with the typical reference cards, most all of the dissipated heat is sent out the back of the card or out of the case if mounting your radiator in a PUSH configuration; this is a HUGE deal to me as I run two cards in SLI and I just can't handle the non reference, open coolers bleeding all that heat directly in to my case.

(regarding the Hybrid card still using the reference fan inside the shroud? I can attest to the fact that it still dissipates quite a bit of heat out the back of the case, even when cooling only the cooling plate and VRAM; in gaming, with the reference turbine fan running at at modest 30%, I still measure the air coming out the back of the card at 110+ Fahrenheit ... which is just nutty; the radiator exhausts at around 95 to 98F as well ... so together, that's a lot of heat I don't have to worry about roasting the other internal components inside my case).

...

For a warm ambient environment, I'd say the Hybrid (or a custom loop) would be the non brainer solution; reference cards and non reference, "open cooler" type cards will overheat quickly in a warmish environment....

That said ...

I don't have the Hybrid 980ti ... but rather *two* Hybrid 980's ... though the thermal performance and otherwise between the Ti's and the reg 980's are pretty much 1:1 when comparing. Both run rock solid at 1515 mhz core speeds...

Even with two in my case, the noise level is ridiculously low.

Great cooler design. (Also, anybody owning a 980ti Hybrid can get the new shroud design that EVGA is releasing; I like it quite a bit better than the typical Hybrid Shroud:
