That's the max boost clock you observe and not the average right? Because 2088 average means the card pretty much overclocked itself to the hilt, leaving little to no OC headroom for manual overclocking.

Seems to be the case for most AIB overclocked GTX 1080s. Even my 1949 MHz is only around 100 MHz away from the max.

I just tried Dragon Age: Origins (modded plus 4x fullscreen supersampling) for the first time on my GTX 1080, and it was very nice to see that my average frame rate went from 70 FPS (GTX 980 Ti @ 1488/7100) to 100-105. Bigger improvement than I was expecting. So a Titan XP would bring this game up to ULMB territory for sure (120 FPS).

My card pretty much jumps to 2036 on loading a game and holds it throughout. Since it never gets higher than 65C I get no throttling. I can't OC at all. Almost anything above +50 to the core fails. I don't really mind though with the boost I get at stock. The cooling on the Amp Extreme is ridiculously good. I have never seen better. Remember I live in south Florida and those are my temps in summer.

The AMP extreme has the best air cooler out of all of them for sure. You just cant beat the temps. I dont get over 53C atm with a +45 core holding steady at 2101 mhz at stock voltage. This is with stock thermal paste, custom fan profile, and im in New Jersey, weather in the 90's range. It stays pretty cool in my house and I have a Phantom 820 case with huge fans so it helps keep my gpu cool. My cpu is water cooled with a H100i which also helps with the temps because it doesnt dump hot air in the case.

Overall the AMP extreme is where its at if you need the best air cooling. I have no plans to put her under water so for me its the perfect fit biggrin.gif

Ive tried +100% voltage and it doesnt do much. I can get 2114 out of her in stable gaming and thats about it. At stock I usually got 2050 mhz so it looks like your gpu is bringing it down a tad due to how hot it is in Florida.

I thought the Gigabyte 1080 Windforce had LED lights so I snatched it up.

It didn't have any sad-smiley-002.gif

In every review i've read, the Gamerock PE models produce only 1 db less than the other high-end 1080's. Those results have to be wrong.

Hello!
Nice thread. First I was considering the MSI Sea hawk X (AIO) but I can't justify the extra cost. So now I'm either considering Palit 1080 Gamerock Premium or Gainward 1080 Phoenix GLH. The Phoenix costs about 71 more usd where I live, is it worth it? Have any of you had trouble with any of these two cards?
Cheers,
