more importantly , you need that 2076 at least to say you are running a 15TFLOP card. My OCD loves this!

I am going to return it however, due to a couple of issues.
1. No backplate.
2. Heat seems a bit higher than i'd like. I think it's averaging around 75°C while gaming.
3. I can't seem to get the oc higher than 1830 in the Aorus oc settings. I'm new to the nvidia side, so i'm not sure if that's the end result that i'm looking at (Don't burn me at the stake).
I'll probably end up dropping the $80 extra bucks and get the Asus Strix, or hold out for the eVGA FTW2 edition that comes out in May.
Anyone else with the same card, hmu and let me know what settings you're using.
bro, set your LEDs how you like them, reset clocks/prfiles in Aorus software (the curve in it is terrible and you need the curve), and close it out (make sure you dont have it set it load up at startup), and USE MSI Afterburner to OC. That's first. Definitely run it high fans, and have you considered a re-paste with thermal grizzly kyro? that's 4-5c right there for $10/10minutes time.
You can get better clocks than that. Remember, though, you are already at +89 core off the top (edit: that's Aorus reggie, yours is +39 i believe) and some Tis only accept +100 to 120 core(from default FE which is 1480 core). just go up in increments of 13 until you freeze up in Heaven then back down 13-26 for stability. Set up a fan curve that hits 100% (it aint bad noisewise , the benefit is huge tempwise) at 59c. hit ctrl+f to open the curve, click on the 1.05v spot and hit ctrl+L to lock it there and save. Also, you may only be able to run about +250-350 on the memory for best performance and no artifacting.
ENJOY. Card is a beast.
EDIT: misread what card you had but the premise is the same. I recommend the Aorus, Aorus X, Asus, or MSI gaming X. Or, SEAHAWK X MSI hybrid. All of these can be had.Edited by Slackaveli - 4/10/17 at 10:28am
