Gainward GTX 1080 Phoenix - Is it stable ???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So finally got my GTX 1080 Gainward Phoenix. Had it for about 1 month now.

Runs amazingly cool, I'm talking about 60C under full load at about 50% speed, about 1400rpm.

I want to know what is truly stable on video cards or the GTX 1080 in particular. For example, one game in WarThunder causes artifacting and flickering when OC'd to about + 170MHz on the core and 400 + memory. Hell I have to drop it to + 160Mhz using MSI afterburner and it still flickers and I get annoying red artifacts when the GPU gets slightly warm. This yields actual clockspeeds from around 2063 max to as low as 2012mhz. No video card driver crashing.

Yet, I can do +214MHz and 450mhz memory when running Unigene for 3 hours. Actual max of 2114 and a low of 2088mhz. No crashing. Can play games such as Doom, Naval Action, Rainbow Six Siege, Witcher 3 (I do see artifacts when I was testing at about 230Mhz + on core as an experiment which I lowered it), Starcraft 2 and Crysis 3. These games do not show any artifact at all at +214MHz core.

But in war thunder even at +160 I can still see the odd flicker. At +180 its very noticeable. at +190 its unplayable with flickering all over the screen.

Should I back down my GPU clock to +160 or leave it at the +214 if it runs perfectly on every other single game except War Thunder. ???

What I typically do, is after my most stable highest bench, it's loss up my most demanding game and play it for a good solid few hours.
Stable in a quickly over benchmark is one thing, no issues after a few hours of gaming is another.
That's my two cents though.
Make different profiles in your OC program, that way you can easily switch between games.

Tried it at default. Still got the same flickering when pushing core.

But is that normal ? Its just one game that craps itself and the others do not ?

Based on what I have read about the issues people have had with this game and video cards, I would say yes.
From the games you listed, Crysis 3, and Witcher 3 appear to be the most demanding. I have played both Crysis 3 and Witcher 3 at the max clocks my cards can handle for an easy six hour straight session with no issues.
The recommended card for war thunder appears to be a lowly gtx 460, so I'm thinking maybe it's just poor coding/optimization?

Same here. Its just annoying to think that the card is stable, except on one game. Makes you question whether its stable in the first place because you want to be able to play any game without any problems.
