YMMV severely depending on the game... I currently have 2 FE 1080Ti's *Previous 2 Aorus 1080Tis (Sold due to poor thermals) and 1 TXp (yes the new one. I sent it back.)* and I also used to have an X99 and 6950x. *Now on R7 1700 and X370.* But in both cases, FPS at 4k can be well over 300fps in some titles and in others be in the 30's with everything turned up. Scaling and optimization are a real PITA. And I don't think Pascal can really deliver a turn 4k 60fps gaming experience. *VOLTA and VEGA Can't come quick enough if you wanna do 4k 144hz on one of those new monitors coming out*

Be prepared to turn settings down, and occasionally forgo AA, if you wanna get 60fps in some titles, if you don't wanna compromise there then game @ 2560x1440. Or get yourself a 3440x1440 or 3840x1600 display. *MUCH MUCH MUCH less demanding than 2160p.*

And as for your choice to go with the Strix in SLi, be careful as card spacing and case airflow can cook your cards pretty good. IF you don't have a board with good slot spacing or don't plan to get one one I wouldn't recommend stacking AIB cards. Had this issue with the Aorus. Top card would cook and flush heat onto the 2nd card making for card 1 to load @ 95C and card 2 to load at 80C. *Yikes, I know* You're better served saving some $$$ and water cooling 2 FE's with blocks or hybrid kits, if you're dead-set on the Strix and don't want to watercool you're gonna need some VERY good airflow pushing the head out of your case, and a lot of fans, I'd also suggest re-timing the cards as the stock paste jobs and tim itself, isn't great. And also using MSI Afterburner to create a custom curve for GPU load/gaming, as yes 0db is nice and all for web-browsing and some FHD video watching, but it can spell thermal issues with your cards when under any kind of actual load.

Finally, if you really wanna maximize your gaming get a 5775c or a 7700k, the higher cache and or clock speeds really shine in gaming (we're talking 5-20fps more over a chip with more than 4 cores!!!) this is due to most modern games not being well optimized for multi-core systems and topping out at either dual or quad core, however if you use your PC as a workstation and do more than just game, then stick with your CPU and OC the crap outta your CPU and cards to compensate as much as you can to get as much of your FPS fluidity back. Personally I'd get the 7700k as it's newer and can push 5ghz pretty easy with a modest OC. some can even run up to 5.5ghz. drool.gif

*Fast memory over 3000mhz helps with an extra 2-10fps depending on the game as well.*

TL;DR, DO NOT get an AIB card that vents heat into your case for SLI, FE would be better, and even better if you can water/hybrid cool it. You have the wrong CPU for 4k Gaming, consider changing or getting a different display, or gaming at 2k or 21:9, if that's an option, finally get fast ram over 3000mhz if you can/don't already have it.

Thanks for the info buddy. But STRIX is fine for SLi. I already am using GTX 1080 STRIX OC in SLi and Card2 only reaches a max of 76°C @2050 boost. That's competly acceptable by me. I have a Corsair 900D with a X99s Gaming 7 M/B, i think 2 slots apart for the cards.

But your comments on getting the 7700k is interesting. But I would need to see evidence of that being considerably better than the i7-5930k for gaming. If anyone could link me any benchmarks of the i7-5930K OC'd and the 7700K OC'd @4K gaming and the latter did show better results then I would definitly like to put that on my to-buy list.

Supo 1080P high - same as above but 41 degree core temp.

Can probably improve on this by blasting the radiator fans for a few minutes before a run.

Ok that is right in line with what mine runs at, just making sure it is doing the job!

I went am4, not gonna look back. Quad cores are too outdated at this point to consider and I can drop in zen 2 or zen 3 in the future with the same mb/ram and blow the 7700k quad out of the water. I plan on getting big Volta when it comes out and will use my 1080ti Hybrid kit on it on launch day, thats gonna be a fun day for me.

Hopefully if ASUS hit their RMA targets in the last two quarters they'll release the BIOS.

Anyhow, I've asked if he'll send me the BIOS privately via PM. Waiting on a response.

I'll keep you all updated.

if I get my hands on it; it might be "share via PM only" but hopefully not.

Watch this space. And keep your fingers crossed.

Those passionate about O/C'ing may be in for a nice treat soon ;-)

Not making any promises. But my calls did get answered last round. So its looking 50/50.

Plz! just secretly leak it and don't let Asus know. I'll not tell anyone! just give me the BIOS!

the core temp seems a little bit high to me. I'd expect 10 to 12 water-GPU delta C under intensive loads
post #8307 of 10487
I'm comfortable with 20 degree core-ambient deltas. Could probably drop a couple of degrees with some better TIM, but low 40s under deliberately high 4K loads is not of concern to me.

Anyone with a 1080 Ti Founders Edition waterblock (that you've not yet fitted) do me a quick favour please?

Put a measuring tape across your block like I have done in this picture below:










Then either post or PM me the photos please?

Thanks a million!

I had a quick exchange with EVGA and they assured me that using my own thermal compound, in particular the one you suggested, would not void the warranty. I'm glad EVGA is willing to warranty the unit with the card when correctly installed (this was part of me wanting their hybrid cooler) and I'm doubly glad they'll let me use my own goop with it. I look forward to the lower noise and temps. This reference cooler is a little better in tone than my old 680 coolers, but not by much and the 1080 Ti heats up much quicker. At least with the 680s I could keep them under the throttle limit at 100% fan speed, unbearable though that was.

Awesome! thumb.gif

Skip to the 6 minute mark. Bare in mind he is using a 980ti and these are stock clocks. Pay extra close attention to minimum frames and not averages. OC-ing a 7700k to 5.0Ghz or beyond will widen the gap as most cpus with more cores can't go much higher than 4.0 (ryzen) or 4.3 (Broadwell-X/Skylake-X)
