Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Owner's Thread - Page 215

Kryonaut works well with the spread method?

Do you need to heat it up first or does it just work?[/quote]
Spread method is recommended and that's what I used to good effect. I just make the entire surface is covered such that no area is 'see through'.
It work straight away. It seems to work very slightly better(-1c?) after a few days.

Hi guys. I have the Waterblock edition. Do I post/ask questions here?
post #2143 of 2371
Thank you for your post, SavantStrike. 4 of these bad boys OUCH. I bought just 1 for $849 at Newegg and LOVE it in my 5960x rig. VERY fast and runs cool. How many and what type rads are you using?

I have 3 XSPC RX480 rev3 rads so PLENTY of cooling capacity.

A phobya extreme g changer 1080, an Alphacool ut45 360, and an XSPC EX240.

I hope to start heat soaking the machine tomorrow to see how bad the temps get. Flow should be excellent so I'll be at the limit of my radiators.

hi all, I'm assuming I can post here. what are you guys using to overclock your cards? are you sticking with the Aorus OC software or are you using Afterburner? I'm not really getting any good overclocks with AB. Have any of you guys flashed the bios? I haven't flashed since the 780s. Can we still remove boost 3.0 with a custom bios? unlock voltage?

The best you can do is cross flash another BIOS from a different 1080 TI. That will give you higher power limits, but the Gigabyte cards will give you 375W out of the box. If you are getting bad clocks on the stock BIOS you may just have a weak GPU.

Definitely use Afterburner, the Gigabyte software is buggy.

Hey guys,

I'm switching to nVidia (from a R9 Fury) and want a 1080Ti. In your opinion, should I get the Aorus 1080ti (non extreme) or the Asus Strix (non OC)?

The Aorus is $30 canadian cheaper

correct me if I’m wrong. The the Aorus triple fan PCB board is the same as the PCB board on the extreme Waterblock edition?

Identical. Even the vanilla 1080 and 1070 Aorus cards use the same PCB from what I understand (just with fewer RAM chips), same power delivery etc.
