Details: http://www.evga.com/articles/01107/evga-geforce-gtx-1080-ti-sc2-hybrid/

Finally! That means maybe we will see soon FTW Hybrid with 2x8 pin and higher TDP.


For now I want to try Kraken G10 plus Corsair H90. Which card would you recommend? I thought about Palit since it has 350W limit or Aorus non-Xtreme for 375W TDP or FE because with sub 50 temps I should be able to squeeze it a little bit more.

Anyone had any experience with Palit? Do they void warranty if you remove cooler and slap block/AIO on it?

Really need to know coolant temperatures to get any valid insights. I'd try running the D5 at a lower speed, I have CPU + GPU + 50mm thick 480 Rad + 420 Rads running the pump at like half speed.
i agree that the "whatever reason" return policy drives up the price. equivalent of theft driving up the price, ie uncontrollable costs passed on to the customer.

But if that's their law, that is already figured in and might as well take advantage of the situation, be it by binning, or buying those returns for a discount.

Meanwhile, in The Land of the Free, we get this:

Return Policies
Return for refund within: Non-refundable
Return for replacement within: 30 days
This item is covered by Newegg.com's Replacement Only Return Policy.

Sounds like ole Ralph Nader and Bernie Sanders and them were right...

The real dirt bags are the ones who shunt mod the cards, and return them .Seen a few advocating that crap, "well if it goes wrong just clean it up and send it back hardee har."..scum of the earth. Seriously I cant believe how seriously legit terrible some people are around here.
post #8064 of 10838
I've never actually read a post on here where someone performing a shut mod did actually break their card.

On the 1080 owners thread, over about 5 months there was one isolated incident (in that whole timeframe i spent there) where the solder points were eaten away by the LM causing the resistor to fall off. But it was nothing that was going to make his card blow up, become unreasonably expensive or difficult for him to fix.

In fact I think he soldered it back on himself. Card is probably still going strong with Liquid Tape protecting the base of the resistor this time ;-)

i totally feel you but I actually think their is some truth to what Slim was saying. Some of us are straight up on the spectrum , I know I am. But knowing is half the battle and I check myself. Usually there is a period of madness before I accept that I have reached to absolute highest clocks, etc.

Then something weird happens and I start geeking on low power consumption, and topping out perf at less watts/volts, and undo all my overclocking. Im a nutt, lmao

However, I do agree that we have to keep it real and not "blow up the hustle", b/c we used to be able to return gpu to Newegg, and people have ruined that FOREVER. Once they stop, they dont start back. One day Amazon will do the same, and then what?

I side with consumers over corporations all day everyday. But there does come a point where you have to let the company be profitable, ya know? Hardmodding a card then returning it to a STORE is douchey as hell. Now, sending it in for a warranty replacement , where they send you a refurbished anyway, that I can get behind. But don't be shunt modding and what-not and then walk that dude back into Best Buy.

Speaking of Best Buy, I have been known to "borrow" a gpu from them for up to 10 days before , lol. Waiting on that cross shipment from EVGA, grabbed a 1070 for the week. But, I didnt hurt it . And Best Buy put that dude RIGHT back on the shelf like it was brand new...

Consumers will always be consumers. Some things never change. Like human nature. The rich, the poor. The hard-worker, the lazy. The privileged. We all different, all see it from different perspective and would all do things the other wouldn't do.

Nvidia is the true bandit.

Look at recent Ryzen launch. How come AMD can release the same performance at half the price? lol

And everyone still makes a profit.

That's right; I think we all know VEGA isn't going to nail it. But imagine if it did. 350 for a 1080 TI.

i think that's true. but there have definitely been some that have shunted, LM on the die, slapped blocks on it, OC it until it crashes repeatedly going for 2100Mhz, and then end up "returning it to it's previous condition" and returning it. I seriously doubt they tell the store about what the card's been through.

It's a fine line. WE can't be getting screwed by multi-billion dollar corporations and having to get beat out of a bi-weekly paycheck's (for most) worth of money when a shady company refuses a return on a faulty product. But if we take too much advantage of the system binning a have dozen cards per actual purchase, the tide will turn and we'll be the one's getting screwed. All it takes is money in politicians pockets and consumer right's erode away...

jah. but even AMD bilked their customers buy selling a $500 cpu(1800x) with the exact performance of the $320 cpu(1700). CompANIES BE SHADY.
But, I do cheer AMD's success (while not expecting it) because monopolies SUCK.

In all seriousness, if AMD delivers on Vega , like actually competes with Ti, for <$500 , especially if it's like $350-400, it would do wonders for the industry. We need that competition. And it would make Volta come proper, too.

They really are bandits, though, Nvidia. Because we are giving them SO MUCH MONEY and instead of re-investing that into graphics R&D, they are using it to get in good with Big Brother with Spyhouse TM, and self-driving cars, and AI supercomputing. None of which will advance gaming tech at all. I don't like that crap.

Lol, then I change my statement. For nearly only 1/3rd the price. (as you're right, you can overclock the 1700 to same leve as 1800x for nearly £200 lessl).

So imagine that folks, a 1080TI performance for $238. Because that's effectively what AMD just did with Ryzen.

I'm only measuring the PC usage. Think i might grab that kill a watt power strip. I'm only using a little less than 1/3 of my PSU's power. I'm still rocking an Evga G2 1300w from my tri-fire 7950 Setup. Man i remember having a golden card if you could hit 1200 on the core. That's chump change compared to what we get out of the box these day.
