Who would trust a film review written by someone who didn't watch the film? Or a car review by someone who didn't drive the car? Or a hardware review by someone who didn't use the hardware? As I said, he didn't even install the card, let alone make any judgements or comparisons. All that stuff you listed is purely superficial and can easily be done just by looking at pictures of the card (which is exactly what they did for the VRM analysis, where one guy used a picture of the PCB in GIMP without even physical access to the card: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UURdOEMrCA ). Not even Gamers Nexus are calling it a review, because they know better. They just want to get the preliminary stuff out of the way early so people who are looking forwards to the actual review have something to watch while they wait.

Hey all 1080Ti on water cooling, can you run >2ghz stable for a full gaming session?
Heard the 1080Ti are purely heat limited. thumb.gif

Others have been "sold" just watching those videos already :-)

But fair enough.

You have no downclock at all during the full run? I would consider this a very good result!

How's your card doing in FS Ultra? I found this test very demanding concerning power limiting. My FE(water, shunt mod) can do Supo 4k, Metro Redux, Valley, Doom at 2100MHz without any downclock. But it crashes in FS ultra above 2075. And at 2050 it still has a few minor downclocks to 2038 and 2025.

With an under-volt, many can run 2GHZ all day long (1999Mhz bin), even without water. And still have 50 watts of power left to play with on a FE. (in games). Benches: maybe a bit different.

Cards which struggle on the lottery (maybe just falling short of 2GHZ on air) will probably still do 2GHZ with a really good custom water loop.

Scale on PASCAL is about 100mhz for every 50 degrees C.

I have been looking at some reviews and benchmarks of this card and it has caught my eye that the 0.1% minimum frame rate seems to dip very noticeably when the card is overclocked to its limit, altho the average and max fps are increased.
Any ideas what could be causing this? I find it very strange. Some kind of aggressive hardware level throttling maybe happening?

Guys, if my card stable on 2050/12000 Mhz with water block and stock bios, do I need flash custom bios ? Will it give more performance?

If you're hitting the power-limit, a shunt-mod would probably net you more performance than cross-flashing another manufacturers BIOS.

You would then indeed get a more consistent frequency at higher clocks; but in terms of the real-world performance gain that brings -- in all honesty it's negligible.

If you're going for a "benching-score" then by all means go for it.. if its just for gaming then you may be disappointed.

If you like to tinker and push the envelope and scrape every last degree of performance (just to say you can, like me lol) because you enjoy overclocking; then again-- I'd say definitely go for it!

By the way; I checked your system pictures out. I like your radiator. it's huuuuge lol. very nice setup ;-)

I received my replacement Gigabyte OC today. The coil whine is much improved, but I'm getting the exact same black grid flashing during WoW loading screens, intermittent black bar flashes horizontally while in game, and the screen goes black for a split second every 30min or so. Could this be something other than the card?
