And in particular, these 1080ti, i have seen a bunch of ~2000 and not 1 gaming x owner claim to have a golden yet. So, as i sit here (blessed) with a 2088 Aorus, msi's name have deteriorated with me. "trash" was a bit harsh and not truly indicative of how I feel. More like disappointed in them lately and I imagine the volta will have a whole new cooler design/look as well as bringing out a High End version again, like Lightning. Seems leadership over on the island took a weird turn. Or just got plain lazy.

Wasn't the 980 Ti the last lightning they made? I believe they didn't make any for the Nvidia 10 series cards. The most beautiful was the 580 Lightning Xtreme with the blue fans and the gunmetal cooler, it was just missing a back-plate to make it perfect. It had 3GB too back in the day that was a LOT! The overall design of the gaming series is horrible and red is my favorite color lol, it will never beat the lightning design.

Aorus is great replacement for me wasn't digging much the Xtreme Gaming name they had.

Man I'm loving this 1v challenge. So I bumped up my core from 2012 to 2038 @ 1.00v and it's completely stable. I'm getting no Perfcap's and with the locked bin and gameplay seems smoother since it's not always jumping all over the place. Been playing Ghost Recon Wildlands at this clock speed for a couple hours now. I'm really surprised I'm getting no Perfcaps. Will enjoy my 2038 tonight and tomorrow after work I'll try to bump it up a little more.

I just got my Aorus Extreme on Friday. I haven't had very good luck over or under clocking, but I don't know what I'm doing yet. So far without re-pasting with TG the card boosts to between 2012 to 2050 and +500 on memory (it may go higher but I haven't pushed it yet) and the temps get into the mid to upper 60's. I'm sure the current paste on there is pretty bad. Also, I got my card from Amazon, does anyone know if they have a free game offer or one directly from Gigabyte?

Are there any closed loop water cooling solutions for this card? Something like the H115i but for the GPU.
post #415 of 1117
So I tested my card. Just did a couple runs in benchmarks, highest temp I've seen with the fans at 100% is 60C so I'm guessing the TIM was applied properly, however the card starts downclocking starting at 57C. The flimsy shroud contacts one of the fans above a certain RPM and becomes extremely loud, but otherwise I can tell it's a quiet card even at 100%.

I set the power target to the max in Afterburner, which is 125% so I'm guessing this means I have the F3 BIOS. The highest boost clock I've seen and it usually happens at the beginning of the benchmark is 1999MHz, then it stays at 1987MHz unless the card reaches 57C. The reported TDP goes as high as 110% and the voltage 1.063v

What do you guys think? Also what the hell is this BIOS flashing procedure explained very poorly by Gigabyte:
"GTX1080TI have two BIOS and should change to different port when BIOS flashing,
please refer as below:"

Flashing the BIOS on this card requires flashing twice, once using the HDMI2 port and once using the DVI port?!!

I'm pretty sure you need to do everything through the EVGA website and you'll get the games.

to flash the card you only need to flash it once. you get two different files when u download the bios from gigabyte one will have an h at the end of the file name the other will have a d. all that means is if u use the h file u need to be connected using one of the hdmi ports. if u the d file u need to be connected using the dvi port. this is only during the flashing process though once your done u can go back to port of choice.

Thanks. I will try to reflash the F3 and flash the F4 and see what kind of clocks I get. Looks like I got a poor overclocker, can't hold more than 1987MHz under load...

EDIT: the drop from 1999MHz (highest boost I get) to 1987MHz seems to occur when the card reaches 44 degrees, but GPU-z says the PerfCap reason is vrel.

Hey Guys, been lurking on this thread since the beginning when I got my Xtreme! Props to everyone here!

Got one of the first ones and loving this card! Running F4 and overclocked great out of the box. Bench and game at 150% with no voltage increase and I hover around 2063Mhz with a memory clock of +500Mhz. Sometimes it bursts to 2101Mhz, but never holds tongue.gif

Upping the voltage doesn't cause instability and I get slightly more clocks on the core but I opt against it for day to day use as current clocks are more than enough.

Running aggressive fan profile (not 100%, about ~70% max) and I reach ~70c during benches and about ~63c in Mass Effect (60Hz 1440p).

So question for those running additional cooling on the back plate. how are you securing the heat sink? Adhesive thermal paste? I go to LANs fairly frequently so my cases gets moved around a bit so I want it to be pretty solid.

Keen to implement something more permanent biggrin.gif

Here's an update on BIOS flashing.

This card does contain 2 separate BIOS. I used a spare monitor with a DVI port to flash the "D" BIOS update. After shutting down my computer and plugging in my DP monitor, GPU-z would still show the old BIOS version. When I would turn off the PC and plug in the DVI monitor instead, GPU-z would show the new BIOS version. Since Gigabyte claims that this card has two BIOS, and the "D" update did not seem to apply to when DP was used, I made the assumption that the "H" BIOS would apply to both HDMI and DP. Since I don't have an HDMI monitor, I just did the flash using my DP monitor and it was successful. From now on I won't bother plugging in a different monitor for flashing the BIOS.
