post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and i am looking to pick up a EVGA Hybrid cooler for it to see if i can cool this down and maybe do some over clocking just wanted to know if this is even worth doing?

See if thermals are keeping you from overclocking the card further, if you are hitting an OC wall before the card is hitting a temperature wall, then it's not worth it. If not, then a bit of modding is in order with the EVGA Hybrid cooler!

I have ran Heaven Benchmark and was hitting little over 80c so did a little digging and downloaded the MSI afterburner and made it when my card temps get around 70c to put fans on to 100% and that seems to help a bit but i still feel like it should be a little cooler...

I have never tried to OC a video card as of yet but i am sure the temps i am getting now and OC the card would not be a good idea. mad.gif

So should i bother getting the new cooler? I am going to Micro Center tomorrow and i plan on picking one up if not i guess i can just deal with it. Suck to see this with a 700$ card coming from the manufacturer.
