I only get a Vrel Perfcap which I just ignore it since the card is perfectly stable. Once the water block is released for the card I'll actually push the limits and see what the card can do. Although I get great temps though. This is by far the coolest card I've ever used with an air cooler.

F3 BIOS is better suited for overclocking, F4 is for power savings and stability the %'s don't mean anything when they both top 375W on both profiles. The F3 has a higher default TGP. On water you'll hit a wall at 2100Mhz it's the architecture that's the limit. You're just gonna get better temps going water.

Yep and that's exactly why I haven't flashed the F4. Totally satisfied with my clocks. I don't expect much higher clocks under water, I just want to get this thing as cool as possible so I'm not dropping bins. Although, I do have a pretty solid overclock right now. 2063 @ 1.063v never drops bins while playing games. Only benches drop the clock down to 2050. I don't even expect to hit that 2100 clock, but I'll try. I just don't have any interest in running 1.093v daily. Pretty happy with where I'm at now. Just need EK to released that water block and I'll throw some Fujipoly thermal pads and kryonaut TIM on it to get the lowest temps possible. I have a 30mm thick 240mm rad, a 45mm thick 360mm rad, and a monsta 80mm thick 420mm rad so temps should be nice since the only other thing that's under water is my delidded 6700k @ 4.7Ghz. Running dual D5 pumps.

I just wish I knew what size thermal pads they are going to use on the Aorus block so I can order the thermal pads. Hmm, maybe I'll ask in the EK thread.

for anyone interested


4.4.0 beta 7 ;-) ... I tried changing url from 6 to 7 and it works. nothing any higher though

http://office.guru3d.com/afterburner/MSIAfterburnerSetup440Beta7.rar
in the main Ti thread they were warning about glitches w/ Beta 7. you may wanna roll that back to beta 6.

i concur. no need to go lower power unless you have a bad overclocker; llike the ones struggling w/ 2000Mhz may prefer the F4.

Can you give some more info on the Fujipoly thermal pads. Where would one order from in USA and which model number? What are the thermals compared to EK? I am also waiting EK to release the block.

Fujipoly makes the best thermal pads period. I use them on all my blocks. Their ultra extreme pads are 17W/mK heat transfer which is top of the line. I couldn't find both the 1.0mm and 0.5mm Ultra Extreme pads in quarter sheets, only in 60mmx50mm which is pretty small. So I settled with the next step down which is the Extreme varient with 11W/mK heat transfer. So now those are ordered and I just need to order some Kryonaut for the GPU core. For some reason Frozen CPU doesn't carry it so I'll just order if from Performance-PCS when I order the waterblock from them.

Here are links to what I ordered. BTW this stuff is like clay so be careful handling it, it can easily rip.

0.5mm Thick

I installed my Xtreme today - first run on Default settings with 100% fan gave me a result of 2025/2012. I will do further tests in the next days.
What is the maximum power limit setting with afterburner - 125%? I thought 150% ?!?

Regarding BIOS - is it possible to install the F3 bios although the F4 is already installed (downgrade)?

If I run it at the stock OC clock speeds than my games all crash and 3dmark benchmarks crash and freeze 10 to 60 seconds into it. Sometimes it causes PC to freeze with artifacts on the screen.

After troubleshooting on reddit they though the card might not be getting enough power, but I have a Seasonic SS660xp2 which is a 660w Platinum+ high end PSU and my rig should only require about 500w.

Anyway, when I underclock the card by putting it on Aorus software's silent mode it seems to run fine, but on normal/gaming/OC mode it crashes games.

Do I send it back to Newegg? RMA it to Gigabyte? Or is it my PCs fault?


Hello,

I have the same problem, only "silent graphic mode" work saflely... (GPU 1825 HMZ maxi and temp and fan Ok only in "auto"

Well I wasn't happy with my non-Extreme Aorus 1080 Ti always hovering in the 70-80F range, and the big plastic hump with the Aorus logo stuck out too much and prevented my case cover from closing (Corsair Air 240), so off came the fan shroud. I re-pasted with MX-4, and ziptied a couple 120mm Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM fans to the heatsink. Now with fans spinning low enough to be silent I get Temps in the mid 50s full load.

Really didn't feel like returning and dealing with Newegg's restocking, but longterm I want a cheap AIO liquid cooling mount for this. Will keep my eyes open but for now temps are much more manageable, and the overall profile is smaller - win/win. Now I'm just questioning what I really gained over a FE card.

The Xtreme bios is 150% with a 375w max and the regular Aorus has 125%, also with a 375w max power. The Xtreme has a lower default voltage. I have the regular Aorus and have the 125% max power slider. If your card has a max power slider of 125% then your card must have been flashed with the regular Aorus bios (which is usually better for overclocking).
