MSI GTX 1080 Sea Hawk X Overclock issues,settings,limits ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a MSI GTX 1080 Sea hawk X from http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1260338-REG/msi_gtx_1080_sea_hawk_x_geforce_gtx_1080_sea.html.

I'm fairly new to Overclocking in general, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

the card maxes out to 105% Power limit and 92C.
Using 100% power limit and voltage slider maxed out.

Issue:

I can get it to OC to roughly 2050 before nvidia driver starts crashing. I had to mess with the curve via CTRL+ F in Afterburner beta version.

If GPU reaches over 100% power limit it results in a nvidia display driver has stopped working error...

Max Temp. that I've seen on mine is about 54 to 55C.

I can not even get close to OC results listed at https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_1080_sea_hawk_x_review,39.html

Questions:

Anyone else experience the same thing?
suggestions?
Could someone with the same card share their OC settings?
Have i lost out on the slicon lottery in this GPU?
Can I flash any other card's BIOS in this to "increase" its power limit? (for that matter is that even possible?)

Thanks in advance!
