yup, i was waiting for the cheapo evga $610 as the extra vrms and power phases are no use on this card for regular 24/7 use... Even if so, the extra mhz dont provide the performance gains wanted..... so i decided to go reference and call it a day. But evga or the other partners are taking to long so i pull the trigger on the first one i saw which was a zotac founders...


I only paid $39 bucks for the hybrid kit on amazon

I have FE for the time being but maybe i am getting the MSI twin frozer tomorrow, my plan was to put the card under water, will the extra vrm and power phases actually make a big difference?

The AiO/custom, offer better cooling so less or no throttle at all.... more vrms or phases or more power plugs or what not i havent seen nothing wow so far..

Even the zombie cards are struggling and this people have tools and knowledge for those problems

At this moment, there is no difference on the voltage locked BIOS. When the unlocked BIOS is available you could squeeze like 100 MHz more on air. For record the highest clock now is 2500 MHz Galax HOF under LN2 with an voltage unlocked BIOS, not that impressive per cent wise.

In short, if you under water, just grab the cheapest available imho.

but with bios mod this could make a difference no? 5 vs 10

This is what I'm sort of doing too (EVGA SC Gaming) + the reference design actually has water blocks available.

I'm not sure which brands will bin their 1080s, but that can make a nice difference - including the ability to show off thermals in certain presentations biggrin.gif.

As already pointed out, the problem is the maximum voltage and clock the chip can handle, due to the smaller node. They can only reach higher voltage and clock under LN2 with subzero condition.

Still, more VRMs will bring more stability and that is definitely a plus. Just don't expect more performance though.

Yep seems right...i guess i am trying to justify keeping the FE over more robust designs but some also say that more power phases are usually just marketing ......then again cleaner power is all ways welcome thumb.gif

Still, if you are under water you should have adequate cooling for the VRMs, and that is enough to ensure their stability thumb.gif
