Take it off from the back plate, not the front. Remove all screws/nuts from back and two on vent. Takes all of 2 minutes if you have the right tools.

Here is the set.

Watch this video. This is for a Titan XP, but its the same story for the 1080ti. It explains exactly why you need a socket. I clipped it at the right timeline. Basically without the hex socket, you will slip if trying to use pliers and as they slip under the force from your hand squeezing them, they will invariably break the tiny, fragile components on the back of the PCB. Those screws have Loctite, so you need leverage to get them moving. Pliers will break the card.

A 5/32" imperial socket is very close in size to 4mm, so a 4mm would likely also work if that's what you have.

Well thanks.

I haven't actually received it yet.

It's in the post.

But obviously I've been reading reviews & you-tube. Incl. that video someone posted when Steve Burke does it.

I assume he over-complicates it then? It's easier than the video makes out??

If thats true, good to know ;-)



P.S.

You guys finding the nvidia power limit too restrictive?

What about with slider at 120%? Still ??

Reason I ask; most partner edition cards have higher power targets; and I don't really fancy doing physical hardware power mod on £700 card.

der8auer says it doesn't do any harm, but I've heard the LM eats the solder. Buildzoids answer to that is use conductonaught instead of the traditional liquid metal, but i remain skeptical.

It is done, I could not resist anymore, go to hell budget, I bought one. that what credit is for rolleyes.gif

After missing the one on newegg.ca because they got the stock in the 15 minute that I decided to close my computer to clean it... (to prepare for the eventual new card) I can't believe the timing and irony in that lol...
I've been waiting for hour just to miss it by a dust... tongue.gif

I did manage to get one from Nvidia website at arround 9:15 AM EST (8 hours later) but Its like 100$ more because of the taxe (I'm from quebec)
(how come newegg charge only 5% and Nvidia 15% taxe?)

But I don't care, I needed it ;-)

Those 2 gigabyte gtx970 served me well at 1080p but not at 1440p (predator) I need more power.



Anyone from canada who bought from NVIDIA, its my firs time, how long should be the shipping.

Also I'm going to eventually water-cool it,

I would really like a EK-KIT P280 and a EK-FC Titan X Pascal

But I already have a h110 corsair so I will probably go with EVGA HYBRID Water Cooler. much cheaper.

Is it that much cooler to justifies the price difference.
It will probably be enough for now.

I will post result of my overclock when I received it, I hope I will get a lucky card like my 2x970.

Edit: the evga kit that fit with little cutting is 400-HY-5188-B1 ?

Instructions call for a 4mm which IIRC is like 5/32"? I see a 4mm in that pic you posted so that should work.

EDIT: 3.97mm is what 5/32" is...so yeah. Either 5/32 or 4mm.

Nothing yet... Maybe once the STRIX OC is widely available then the same guys will be willing to release a similar BIOS.
