Thanks! That will save me almost 60 bucks.

How did you mount the FE backplate If i may ask? smile.gif

I think I'll order the same block as you got.

Do you have any pics of your rig/loop?

just recorded a video playing Witcher3 with 2165 to 2139mhz clocks @ 4k

playing @ 2202mhz is possible but it will produce textures pop-ups and weird red dots every 3 seconds

Just saw a review of the Gaming X 1080 and the part where the VRMs are situated gets VERY hot. Like 82ºC. Wouldn't a backplate with good quality thermal pads help keeping it cool?

Probably not to that degree since it's watercooled and not aircooled.

Yeah, I forgot that..sorry. Waterblock will cover the VRMs also...

Anyway, for aircooled cards it's still a valid point, isn't it?

You know I probably should have specified that what I said was only with regard to the FE cards using the reference design. There just isn't anything significant there on the backside of the PCB that needs cooling.

My water cooling loop is nothing fancy, its in a case that doesn't have a window so I didn't have to pretty things up per say. Click on the 1080 club in my sig and that should lead to 3 pictures I had put up before in this thread.

As for how to use the FE backplate with an EK block, just re-use the hexagonal screws that you're going to remove when removing the FE air cooler. By the way, if you're going to use needle nose pliers to remove those hexagonal screw, take it freakin slow and steady. Its beyond easy to break off a component, scratch the PCB or sever a trace on the PCB if you're spinning pliers willy nilly while unscrewing them. So after looking at my photo again it appears I had re-used 9 of those hexagonal screws. Either way you can see my finished product in that photo to see what I mean.

Link to heatsinks used:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00637X42A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They were secured with a generic thermal tape.

I used an artificial benchmark (I chose it because it was short and it utilized almost all of the VRAM) It is the MSI Kombustor Lakes of Titan test.

This card is a "Hybrid card" I used an NZXT G10 Bracket and an NZXT Kraken x61 Cooler, The Memory/VRM fan is silent, so I left it at full speed.

Here are the OC results:
Core is always at 2190 MHz

Memory was stable up to +825 MHz

+0 Memory Clock | Score: 41902 | 698 FPS

+100 Memory Clock | Score: 41544| 692 FPS

+200 Memory Clock | Score: 42325 | 705 FPS

+500 Memory Clock | Score: 42679 | 711 FPS

+600 Memory Clock | Score: 42864 | 714 FPS

+650 Memory Clock | Score: 42450 | 707 FPS

+700 Memory Clock | Score: 43164 | 719 FPS

+750 Memory Clock | Score: 42566 | 709 FPS

+800 Memory Clock | Score: 43139 | 718 FPS

+825 Memory Clock | Score: 43463 | 724 FPS (Stable in CS:GO, GTA V and Garrys mod Vsync off)

+850 Memory Clock | Unstable


Great work. Any other games you have tested?

hi guys, my 1080 FE overclocks like a turd, only 2025mhz at 1.093v stable :/ tested in unigine valley and heaven benchmark, i didnt win silicon lottery i guess smile.gif

Anyone attempt GTAV @4k with the 1080 getting acceptable frames @highest settings minus AA?

yes, GTA V runs very very good at 4k, with very high settings, high grass, fxaa, 60fps, gtx 1080 is having hard time only in heavy grassy areas but still can maintain 60fps, other than that is downclocking in city cuz very low on gpu even at 4k smile.gif crazy, prolly at 1080p this gpu is consuming less power than ps4 smile.gif
