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
Strix is probably the best card alonh with MSI lightning. It has the best cooling and quality of VRM. Tho a bit lesser power limit.

Does that mean the Aorus (non extreme) has a higher power limit?

Would getting the STRIX and flashing the AORUS vBios be the best of both worlds? (or some other card with a higher power limit?)

The 375W power limit of the Aorus card is hard to hit. You have to be under water with a lot of voltage before it becomes an issue.

In general it's not a great idea to cross flash a BIOS unless absolutely necessary (like raising the power limit on a founders edition card). You can lose display outputs and even have reduced performance, or soft brick the card if you flash a BIOS from a card with incompatible power delivery. It only works as well as it does on the 1080/1080 TI because Micron is the only GDDR5x vendor for the 10 series cards.

If you're considering the Aorus BIOS then just get the Aorus, the Strix, just get the Strix, etc. The only knock I've ever seen against the Aorus is that not all of the cards seem as well binned as others, so occasionally someone will buy an Aorus Extreme that's slower than the non extreme.

Having a very frustrating issue of not getting a 4k/60hz 4:4:4(full rgb) output.
I only managed to get 4:2:0.
I have a Samsung UE65KU6400S 4k tv.
If I enable HDMI UHD color(for full rgb input signals), my screen is flickering/blinking and most of the times looses signal.
No problems if i set the refresh rate to 30hz.

Tried all combinations of ports/drivers/settings with no luck.

I have to try with another cable, but this cable worked like a charm with my rx470 and the same TV.

I will appreciate any help from any Aorus(and not only) owner who faced similar issues and maybe resolved them.

Hi,

I'm having hard time figuring out what is happening when overclocking my Aorus GTX 1080 Ti (non-Xtreme). I'm getting power limited even with PL 150%/375 W (F3P BIOS) and forcing only 0.950 V to my card. Also when polling with NVSMI I can never get above 300 W power draw. F3 BIOS, fresh drivers, maximum performance in NVCP/Windows made no difference.

Is this supposed to be normal? For what its worth I can run it 1974 MHz constant with 0.950 V, still seems very odd to me. Something physically limiting?

What are you using to test the card? Mine can easily breach 150% power draw.

So in theroy I should be getting somewhat the same or close to overclocks that you guys are getting.

Yes, but not every 1080 TI can get there. It looks like all of the cards have this problem, both AIB and Founders editions. Most can break 2ghz no problem, but some are stuck considerably slower, and some can break 2.1ghz.

Ok great. I haven’t really started over clocking too much yet. Just finished building my system, but I’ve already seen my card (if I remember correctly) running around 2150 or so. What you just said makes me feel better.
