When you see their custom pcb designs is when binning may be involved as they are only buying chips at that point.

Its not luck of draw when dealing with EVGA trust me yes their FE they receive are from nvidia BUT they use the best cards tested for their SC model.

After a month or so they start manufacturing their own reference PCB and make their own FE and sc gets shafted by even higher end cards as it becomes GPU binning not just testing cards

Tell tail is the logo by the PCIE and EVGA even told me they eventually start produce their own FE.

Ordered a ASUS Strix 1080ti yesterday when I saw it was finally available.

The rest of my system is fairly old at the moment and I have been thinking of upgrading but just haven't gotten around to it.

Currently running a i7 2600k clocked @ 4.6 ghz, 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 RAM & a 2GB Sapphire Radeon HD6970.... So yeah I've been running this build for about 6 years now, it has aged well and still runs great.

Only thing I don't like is that the 6970 has gotten annoying with it's high temps and loudness. Part of the reason why I even wanted a new video card in the first place. I figured I would future proof myself and get the brand spankin' new 1080ti and figure out if I want to upgrade the rest of my stuff later on.

So basically... should I upgrade my system now or wait on it as everything else still runs pretty great? Maybe there is better stuff on the horizon I should wait for?

Short answer, ur fine. Unless you are gunning for 120FPS type monitors with no Gsync then I wouldn't really bother about the CPU.
I myself only noticed a difference in CPU when I upgraded from a 4.5ghz 3770k to a 4.8ghz 7700k with the GTX 980ti (1450mhz) in one single game, FFXIV while sitting in Idyllshire town (this is basically the central hub town with at least 50+ player characters being rendered). I went from 45 FPS to smooth 60 FPS but I knew this was a CPU bottleneck from the beginning since the GPU usage was only 55%.

Long answer, it depends on the games you play and what your expectations are. I only upgraded because a mate was willing to buy my old crap straight away for $450 so I went ahead with the heavily subsidized cost.

Good luck holding a playable min framerate in more demanding titles like Battlefield 1 or the new ghost recon. Not to mention basically all the upcoming titles that can utilize 8 cores very efficiently.

Really depends on res and frame CPU bottleneck will happes when pushing like 1440 and 100+ fps BF1 is perfect example their forum is littered with people complaining with i5 and 4/8 i7 and 1440 gsync monitors are very popular.

Here is my 5960x usage at 1440 /165hz game runs great and hold high consistent frames
No way 2600k would not bottleneck when my 5960x usage can look like this in BF1.

Does anyone know if the Watercool Titan X Pascal/1080ti block works with the stock backplate? (This block: http://shop.watercool.de/HEATKILLER-IV-for-TITAN-X-Pascal-ACETAL/en)

would you mind DSRing that to 4k and let me know what your CPU usage is like. I'm not getting the answers I need about BF1 on ultra setting, minus AA, at 4k.

That makes sense! Can you say that this is applicable for all games if your aim is 144fps (144Hz)?

I agree that EVGA definitely tests their cards and sorts them into FE and SC performance levels - as does other manufacturers. Binning is a term better suited for chip-level testing but your point is valid. Steve covers this pretty well in the latest Ask GN where he actually talked to EVGA and Asus about this practice:

Tell tail is the logo by the PCIE and EVGA even told me they eventually start produce their own FE.

The only thing the SC card gets tested for is to hold the higher clocks within the same thermal envelope.

Your message I originally responded to was talking about hitting 2100 MHz.

In that sense, it's still luck of the draw. There is no guarantee an SC card will OC higher than a normal clocked.
