Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Owner's Thread - Page 38

post #371 of 1108
Proud owner for a week now smile.gif i have to mention out of the box fan bracket was bend a little enough to prevent 3rd fan from spinning. Cooler keeps it at 69F(72F ambient) with oc boost 2036MHz stable on non extreme edition with stock bios.

Have anyone try water cool this gpu? if yes what gpu block did you get

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.

Yeah flashed back to F3, I just did a fresh install of Win10 and seems that was holding me back on my clocks. I reinstalled because I moved from z77 - 2600k to a X79 - 3930k.

I used to crash with voltage curve @2037 core and no memory. Now it boosted to 2037 core, with only +35 core and +400 on memory and no volts added. Did a long session of WItcher 3 and played Battlegrounds(Which didnt like any sort of overclock before it crashed within 1 min of the game loading) and no crashes. Interested to see how much I can push now, now that I know that my Win install was the culprit apparently.

Haven't run a card on air in years, hopefully it'll be worthy of getting a waterblock otherwise I'm switching cards lol!
yep, good plan, but go ahead and order some thermal grizzly kryonaut now. it's a 5c-8c gain depending on how bad a paste job your card got. It is quite a though out engineered card but the paste is terrible, too much, and off center in some cases.

Received my 1080 ti xtreme Saturday. With 100% load and temps 68-71C, GPU core was running 2012Mhz solid for 15 minutes. Settings: 100% voltage on the core, 125% power setting and 60% max fan setting.

This was too low for me. Updated bios to the new F4, which gave me the 150% power setting. With 150% power setting and 100% voltage core setting now I am at 2036Mhz core and rock solid after 15 Minutes running at 4K res. More power now, so raised the fan speed to 90% max. Fans are quite so no biggie. Another note: Memory running at 12,080 effective. Great card!! thumb.gif

Time spy score increased by 175-200 points by going to the 150% power setting. Score hitting from 10,200 to 10,370. Have hit 10,400+ a few times.

Hope this feedback helps someone.

Which software did you use for flashing BIOS? Unfortunately I can't find the newest VGA@BIOS flash tool from Gigabyte.
Thanks.

it's the same amount of power (300 base +25%=375w, 250w base +50%=375w) but one BIOS or the other usually works better for guys so congrats on finding a better one for you.

Many of us have found our best clocks with NO voltage added, however. In my case +100 is bad but I get 2088 with +50mv. And mine prefers F3 bios. Go figure , lol. play around with less volts , i guess im saying.

Has anyone with a Seahawk X flashed any other bios successfully and found better OCs?
post #378 of 1108
Yes, I played around with the voltage settings, using 0 and 50% settings, boost was lower at load temps.

100% voltage and 150% power setting gave me the highest core speed (2036) under load (72C) for a solid 15 minutes running 4K resolution. (highest stress)

Fan speed 75-85% to maintain low 70's.

I'd try this, bro.

350W power limit, 100 points more in Time Spy than any other BIOS I've tried. Getting 2052 core at 1.025v and not crashing, had to do 1.050v before. cheers.gif

And getting 2100 core sustained in Heaven at 1.093v, no power limiting. Best I could do since Windows 10 Creator Updater was 2088 1.093v. biggrin.gif

And not power limiting at 1.025v. band.gif

My new go to BIOS!! biggrin.gif

DEFINITELY run fans at 100% over 50c. it helps way more than you'd think. Like, they are twice as effective at 100% as they are at 80%. It's weird. But it's still quiet, too. And those fans are double ball bearing and will last so no worries.
