Better temps are even more effective than a custom pcb and a beefed up power delivery.

Yeah, I'm a stubborn fella and will put it under water. Just deciding if I'll go overkill with H100i or uber overkill with H115i. I'm hoping to keep mid 40s after all that. Also, will apply CLU.

If you have a powerful CPU you'll probably get 100+ in most games (considering heavy ones like ROTTR).

1440P you can expect sub100 FPS and you won't have as much CPU bottleneck as you would with 1080P.

My advice? Go futureproof and get youserlf a nice 1440P screen. Don't make the same mistake I did buying a 1080P screen ins 2016.

I cannot agree more 1440p is the sweet spot, I have no interest in 4k gaming, it would basically diminish all of the gains I got going from a 980 Ti Classifed to the 1080 FTW. I am currently rocking a 27 inch Qnix panel and I love it, but I noticed all the new panels coming out are 4k and I want nothing to do with it. So I orderd an Asus PG279Q and it should be arriving tomorrow, I really hope I will end up getting one past the previous QC issues, but only time will tell.

So, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to overclocking GPU's. I downloaded MSI Afterburner for my two FE 1080's. Anyone have some decent suggestions to gain some performance? They're in a waterloop, if that matters.

Maximum TDP possible and test, then go up in 25 increments on the core and test. When you hit instabilit, go back 1 clock (13mhz) e go to memory overclock (here you can start at 500 and se if your card can handle, you should see artifacts very soon if not).

You'll probably get 2100/+500 minimum with those FE thumb.gif

I got unlucky. Received my 1080 FTW Hybrid yesterday and while temps are always under 45 degrees, my max stable OC is only 2050mhz. I crash at 2063. For gaming I'm not sure 2050 vs. 2100-ish makes a very big difference. But it would be nice to be able to OC a little higher. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Theoretically the extra 50mhz would give you about 1 extra fps for every 50fps.

I have a 420mm rad for my cpu and a 360 for my gpu. I'm still yet to hook this up to it...

It's not just core temps you need to worry about, you also need to cool you memory chips as best you can when overclocking those. Ideally you should find your max memory overclock first then do the core. You will see nice improvements with memory overclocking and benchmarks like Valley love memory clocks, that's why 10x0 cards obliterate 9xx cards in valley because of the sheer clock speeds.

Guud lawd! Brace yourselves, winter is coming biggrin.gif

Just pulled the trigger on H100i V2. The price difference for H115 was like 30% more (H115 delivers 2% more performance in some situations)

Hopefully with a nice push/pull I'll be able to keep my 1080 in mid 40s. Will adapt a kraken g10 so i have some cool air blown directly to my FTW's heatplate.

I will give the memory a try when I have the chance, thanks! P.S., that's some serious cooling in that photo, LOL.

My sister is giving me her old NZXT phantom case so I'll probably mod it to take as many big rads as possible and maybe mount the 1080 on the rear panel some how so its pretty much contained. Just can't be bothered with noise so the bigger the rads the lower the fan speeds under load means I can enjoy silence while overclocking as far as I can.
