I will use liquid metal on the shunts for the shunt mod. The nail polish is to isolate the small parts around the shunts, in case the liquid metall accidantelly spills on them.

Oh ok, I guess that's a whole another level of modding biggrin.gif

The shunt has been going on since 600 series cards. So who knows when and if that warranty sticker will come about.

Hopefully one day someone figures out how to modify the BIOs, that's better.

As you can see, NVidia is locking down more tightly each successive generation -- it seems almost in reaction to overclocking revelations. You didn't need shunts for 600/700/900 series, because the BIOSes weren't locked -- at least AIB's had access to unlock power and voltage beyond reference specs. With 1000, you had Boost 3.0 and AIB BIOS lockdowns as well. The OC headroom and opportunities are dwindling and the next logical step is to make hardware mods like this impossible.

Agreed! redface.gif

Hoping they stop impeding the modding and ocing potential of their products.

1080ti_strix.zip 154k .zip file

Nice! There was a guy here that analysed the FE one, will be interesting to see how the power limit compares to the FE.

In theory this could be flashed to a card right? i.e. it's already signed?

Good luck! I have cryonaut (edit: Conductonaut) on my GPU die now and I needed more than I expected to get good contact between the block and the die.

Thanks for the advice!

In theory yes, that is how I did it with the 1080 at least.

I notice that my 1080 Ti won't idle down to 138Mhz or whatever at idle. It's stuck at 1544Mhz with no load. This same thing happened with m y outgoing 970. I did a fresh install of the drivers and it seemed fine at first but now it went back to doing it. Anyone seen this before and have a solution? Thanks.

What monitor are you using and what is your desktop resolution/refresh rate? 144Hz may be keeping your card clocking higher.
