Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Owner's Thread - Page 60

post #591 of 1158
I shall just post it again.

Hey Guys,

I have been following this thread since I got my Aorus and you guys are really a helpful bunch.
I am on the Gigabyte Aorus Extreme version and Slackaveli, you have been really awesome.
I used your fan curve in the previous posts and I am getting extremely good results based on this.
Guys, running your fan with a good fan curve allows you to have a sustained boost at high clocks which I have observed.

My core is stable in games but my memory overclock seems to be very bad in some games. I can bench but games like Battlefront throws me out after a while so I run no memory overclock in all games.

F3 Bios : (No Voltage) +22 Core / +200 Memory





I updated to the F4 bios even though I had no issues with stability on F3 and I realise that stock to stock, the GPU Boost is alot less aggressive. It runs slightly cooler too probably due to a lower base (everything on stock). You will only boost high 1,800Mhz low 1,900s with everything stock (including Power and Thermal Limit) compared to the F3 Bios which boosted over 2,000Mhz. So what I did was use Slackaveli fan curve and set my Power Limit to 125% and Thermal Limit to 87 Degrees with no overclocks, and I get 2,037.5Mhz GPU Boost with a maximum temperature of around 60-62 Degrees maximum in my airconditioned room. This is PERFECT for gaming with full stability as I have played Battlefront 3 hours straight with no crashes. Frostbite engines are very sensitive to overclocks. Singapore is tropical weather so I have to run the air-conditioner to get these temps. I am thinking of re-pasting my card but for sure my warranty is voided but I may do it sooner as I realize thermals is so important on these cards.

F4 Bios : (No Voltage) +22 Core / +200 Memory



I also benchmarked on Timespy and I got around the same as the F3 Bios with 125% Power Limit and 91 Degrees Thermal limit. F4 Bios you can max out at 150% which is eventually the same as the F3 running at 125%. The F4 bios seems to allow clocks holding for longer before they drop if you have a good chip. Slackaveli and some of the others may have been much luckier with better binned chips to allow them to hit higher. I have not tried with more voltage and I would only try it once I re-paste my TIM as the thermals are way too sensitive with respect to clockspeed.

My setup is with a 120mm Static Pressure fan from Corsair and I seem to drop about 3 degrees having it over the rear copper plate which helps as well.

So is that just a fan on the back plate? No heat sink?

Thanks mate! No I didn't put a heatsink on the backplate at the back of the core for one reason. Look at the torn down photo of the Aorus. The centre is empty and the area surrounding it is affixed with a thermal pad.

What I did though is got elevated rubber feet placed at the bottom of the fan for some elevation so that the air can escape through the openings in which the rubber feet serves to do with some slight elevation. I think having a heatsink there might add a degree in reduction but brings a host of mounting issues so I left it out. Plus the card is already heavy as it is with a slight sag which I fixed with a GPU holder. Nevertheless, I am happy with the results this far.

Does anyone have the download file to share for the MSI afterburner 4.4.0 beta 6. Can't find it anywhere! The original links are missing

Edit: Found it : http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=5412373&postcount=216

This works, whereas previous links posted in the thread re-directed me

So I took this thing off and re-applied TIM.. A lot of the pads were not really properly aligned over the components they were trying to cover so I reseated them, applied AS5 cuz that's all I had laying around. Huge improvement so far. I'm idling @ 35 with fan @ 40%. Full load barely breaks 60 C now and fan @ around 60%. Going to be keep it. But still want to put it under water at some point.

Wow that's really making me tempted to retim the beast. I just wished Fujipoly or some good thermal pad manufacturer has pre-cut thermal pads for the Aorus. Makes it a one stop for changing the TIM and the pads at one short.

For those that changed the thermal pads, what was the thickness of the pads? 0.5 or 1.0?

I'm thinking of changing mine out once I retim the card.

Very easy to use and free* are the UNIGINE benchmarks "Heaven", "Valley" and the new "Superposition". All of them are quite taxing on the system and will easily crash or give an error-message when your system is not stable.


*(Superpostions free version is a bit limited, but not as much as the free 3DMarks).

Thanks for the tips! It has been a while since I've had a high end graphics card (my last good GPU was an 8800 GTX which I replaced with a GTX 750 when my gaming needs were basically WoW and QuakeLive... until now). I didn't have much time after work, so I'm starting with the Superposition benchmark, especially since it included VR tests which is where I'm headed with this system over the summer.

Thus far it looks like it's stable and operating nominally. I did not use the PCIE splitter the card came with, but rather ran 2 PCIE cables from the PSU (Corsair AX860i). This may just be silicon lottery that my card runs a bit hotter (or I need to repaste it?) compared to what others are reporting (30C to 65C is what I've seen a trend of 'good' cards).

Unlike others in this thread I could run using all 3 presets (Silent, Gaming, OC) and there was no stability issues. Gaming setting hit 2000 Mhz, OC hit 2025Mhz. Temp range was 45C to 84C. When i took the side of my case off this dropped 5-10C! Do these numbers make sense?

I was able to get a few games in (QuakeLive, Paladins, and finally H1Z1 which I couldnt play before). All solid FPS with no artifacts or other noticeable issues, so I'm quite pleased!

Lastly, I ran the benchmarks a few more times and tried removing the case and using a IR Thermometer I checked how hot that copper plate was getting and that's where it got interesting. The center'ish part of the plate was ~50C, the edge near where its' screws are were 55-60C and the non-copper back plate itself was 66C. I definitely need to get the airflow up in my case, especially across the back of this card.

I'm going to try some overclocking tonight, what would be a typical OC to first try?

@Douse: Thanks for the advice, I think I'll avoid Furmark as the last thing I need is CPU damage!

And I agree with satinghostrider, everyone in this thread is an extremely helpful bunch, thanks!

Awesome! Try running your power limits and thermal limits at max, fan set to max and run some benchmarks with your side case open. I suspect you're running auto fan profile which is why you're seeing higher temps than usual. During this benchmark runs, don't add any core or memory first. Use GPU-Z to see what is your maximum boosted frequency and you can tweak it from there. This should be a good starting point.

For gaming and normal usage, run Slackaveli's awesome fan profile. I wouldn't use the Aorus software because the CPU usage is sitting at almost 20% and there is some bugs with the Aorus engine software. Try running some benchmarks or games and look at your task manager, I believe you'll see the Aorus engine software using 20% of CPU which is crazy.

I use the MSI afterburner as with most on this forum.

Use this fan profile for normal gaming, etc.

38 Degrees - 0% Fan
45 Degrees -50% Fan
58 Degrees -90% Fan
63 Degrees -100% Fan

That's weird! I may be the thread starter, but i don't have the power to delete posts.
