Being Pascal so temp sensitive, the Extreme gives you a much higher shot to achieve +2100Mhz stable (2126 vs 2066 in my personal experience with both cards).

If one day those Pascal BIOS limiters get "hacked" (pretty uncertain atm), the Extreme cooler is so good that it would allow 2200 on air without problems, while the AMP version is already temp limited hitting +80C on fans@100%.

Thanks for the suggestion but I don't believe an Extreme AMP would fit in my case due to the 2.5 slot cooler. (NZXT Phantom).

So what is everyone using nowadays to manage these cards? MSI AB? EVGA PX? or something else?

I think MSI Afterburner 4.3.0 Beta 4 is the most widespread as far as I´ve seen. The only "problem" I have with my card is that it runs so fine that without the possibility of tweaking the BIOS it gets almost boring very soon. With the 980ti the Bios tweaking was pretty fun biggrin.gif

Dont hold your breath we probably wont see bios tweaker for long time if it comes at all for maxwell bios tweaker was released very soon after card release kepler and fermi too

For those who are interested in OC, there is this step by step guide on how to OC the NVIDIA Pascal by "JayzTwoCents" tongue.gif

Just thought I'd post my experience.....I have a 1080 FE and on air the max in-game clock I could get stable was 2012mhz and it would drop to 1999mhz occasionally and temps would be around 65-70C I could get it up to a little higher in benchmarks and games other than overwatch, maybe around 2050mhz....so I thought I had a pretty dud overclocker.

What I noticed was that when I set my fan profile to 100% it would stay in the higher range of boost clocks until around 55C and then it would jump back and forth also in overwatch I was hitting anywhere from 110-128% tdp which is over max so that was throttling it as well. When I set an fps cap to 60 or 100 (144hz monitor) the tdp% would drop a good bit and then I could bump up and maintain slightly higher clocks.

After that I decided to get the EVGA AIO cooler and after putting that on I was immediately able to overclock to 2100mhz but in overwatch it would drop down to 2025 and anywhere in between with temps maxing out at about 52C

So after this I put Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut over just the one resistor right under the 8 pin connector and then since I already had to redo thermal paste anyway and the water pump was copper I put the Conductonaut on the GPU as well. This made my temps drop to 40C in game with the max i've seen in heaven at 45 with probably about 50-60% fan speed. This led to me being able to achieve 2126mhz stable in-game and no drops in clock whatsoever and TDP doesn't go over 80% anymore.

Memory clock set to +300 throughout. Couldn't notice any discernible differences between 300 and 500+ so I just left it there.

Kinda sad there isn't much else for me to mess with lol.

i installed that AIO cooler on my MSI GTX 1080 Armor OC.









Thermaltake Water 3 Performer C 55€
NZXT Kraken G10 34€
GELID PWM - VGA Fan Adaptor Cable for Cooler from 3 4 PIN to VGA-PWM-ADAPTOR 5€

finally the armor cooler bad performance is going away.

from 87° with noise to 65° without noise.

PS: fan over the radiator spin very slow... but i prefer the silence over the extreme cooling.

PS2: tomorrow i exchange the kraken original fan with a dead silent noiseblocker pwm

Thanks for your input - it is greatly appreciated!

Could you test with 100% fan speed on the rad? Just a brief load test is enough. I'm planning on watercooling mine and I'm not sure if a 120mm rad will do it or if I need to go 240/280mm. It would help me a lot! Thanks!

I read on the 980ticlassy club site that the ek780classy block my fit 1080 classy card, it fits the 980ticlassy card.
