Hey guys just came in to say that I'm joining the club. If you asked me last week if I had plans to upgrade I would say no, but I told myself that if any of the Aorus 1080 Ti's were in stock by the time I woke up I would buy one. I was 100% sure they would all be gone immediately after midnight launch... and they were. Feel bad for the people who stayed up. I woke up in the morning a couple minutes after they put the Aorus back in stock. I was honestly shocked, but a promise is a promise! So $730 later here I am. Just kind of stinks that the waterblock for this isn't coming out until early next month.

I'm going to try to avoid draining my loop so I'm going to just stick this card in the slot underneath my 980 Ti which is currently under water. Maybe use the 980 Ti as a physics card? Then when I get the waterblock for the Aorus I'll drain the loop and sell the 980 Ti. Hopefully EK doesn't delay the blocks!

At this point physics cards are totally useless. You're talking 1-3 fps difference on average and maybe max a 5fps increase on a heavily physics based game in optimal conditions. Save yourself the electric bill and the heat. tongue.gif

That "governing body" however does not stand for something being flame resistant at all. It is simply a regulatory agency that you submit a product to for a certain testing parameter and if your product passes you get a UL number associated for that product. You *can* test products for flame resistance, but simply being a UL listed product does not at all mean something is or isnt flame resistant.

Now myself I do much prefer a silicone because it is easier to apply, and easier to remove, and allows you to be even safer. I am just confused about the whole "UL" thing you are talking about.

I have to submit a bill of materials to them of all the connectors, wires, etc for them to approve.

They audited our soldering process and the materials we used to solder things.

They also went over the documentations on how our boards were fabricated.

And that's how Nissan, BMW and Tesla got some of their car chargers biggrin.gif

I don't work in that field anymore BTW. If I used nail polish as a sealant, it would not fly with them.

Sure, I think the nail polish will do it's job for what the user wants it to do. But just because something works doesn't mean it should be done that way.

All I was pointing out is that RTV is made for what he was doing. Why not just use it? Cost like $3 at some auto stores.

So if I may ask among the 1080 Ti owners what games do you guys play at what res/settings and what kinds of frame rates do you get?

Bud, you're better off just looking at all the reviews for that. Here's a collection of nearly all of them.

https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/5ycn82/gtx_1080_ti_review_launchday_megathread/

You'll find 1080P, 1440P and 4K benchmarks in there.

Here's also a comparison of 3,660 benchmarks all put together.



THREE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND SIXTY ******* BENCHMARKS ALL PUT TOGETHER!

I don't even trust reviews any more. The benchmarks vary so much from one site to the other it's insane. One site reports 40fps of average and the other might report 60 with the same cards and same settings. I don't bother with benchmarks any more.

But thanks. 3000+ benchmarks should be accurate.

Just got my hands on a Strix last night and so far it's seems pretty beastly It's boosting into the mid-high 1900s straight out of the box which I'm pretty good with. Fans don't get too loud but sometimes pulse on and off when not gaming which could get annoying (although it looks like it might just be after gaming it does this, need to test more).

Issues I have with the card (any help or suggestions much appreciated):

- When it boosts up the boost isn't stable, it jumps around constantly by small amounts even though the temp seems stable
- I'm getting jittering every few seconds, which could be related to the boost jumping around. It isn't unplayable by any means but it's annoying. I have vsync on and a frame cap at 58 fps on a 60Hz monitor. These settings were fine with the 980 Ti
- The colors seem washed out compared to my 980 Ti (same settings). I've tried adjusting settings in the NvCP and on the monitor but I can't seem to get back the 'richness' of color I had before. I'm using a display port cable if that makes any difference.

I should post a screen of what the boost is doing but I'm pretty short on time at the moment sorry and am just testing the card quickly when I can. I'll get to really work it out in the weekend hopefully.

Thanks to anyone who can help thumb.gif

So the jittery boost seems to have gone away and it's staying much more stable. Generally it clocks to 1974 and I've seen it go as high as 1999, hovers around 63-64 degrees. I know it's not up there with the overclocks I'm seeing but straight outta the box, I'm pretty happy with that. Now I just need to get these colors sorted and I'll be a happy chappy thumb.gif

Edit: The coil whine at 4k is pretty bad. I don't notice it so much at 1440 but I would like to downsample so that's a bummer. Any tips on getting rid of the whine would be much appreciated smile.gif

sweeet. getting the full $770 back so even after shipping I made $20 and switched to a Aurus, which is almost the one I wanted most (auros xtreme) as I dont sli i dont mind the 3 slot width. Gonna be sexy. My penence for ho'ing nvidia store is i cant catch the xtreme in stock. The regular Aurus still comes @ +114 and I only hold about that anyway so it's all bonus headroom for me. Btw, they are in stock off/on 30 times today on newegg.
