I have very light coil whine when running fire strike. But that's it.

I actually switched from Asus Strix OC to MSI Gaming X. Strix was getting too hot and very noisy, it was a poor overclocker as well. My Gaming X is much better: cheaper, very quiet in comparison to Strix and also a bit cooler. It is performing a bit better as well, so win, win, win, win wink.gif

BTW has anyone here tried to set up a voltage curve, to lock voltage at 1V or lower (to keep stable clocks and consistent FPS)?

I've NEVER had an issue with an MSI graphic card and the 1080 Ti is, like all my previous MSI cards, a solid purchase.

I'm able to get the same overclocks as you guys are really easily and keeping temps low with a semi-aggressive fan curve with Afterburner. Although. I keep my Memory at +350 as I don't see a noticeable difference between that and +500. This card is a beast! And I'm sure it'll get even as the drivers mature for it.


At first I thought +100 on core was stable but unfortunately crashes in some games. So I am settling for +75 for now

So as you guys know I sold off my Aorus as I will be SLI down the road soon. I was going to get the Asus Strix OC but decided to get the MSI Gaming X instead as it looks great for my build as much as many would disagree with how it looks.

I would say I've got a better binned chip than even my previous Aorus as I can hit 2,075Mhz with voltage. My previous Aorus could only max out at 2,050Mhz. The MSI Gaming X is a much more compact card and there is no sag at all as it's shorter than even the Asus. I'm actually not even using my GPU stand and it's just collecting dust now.

The card also is quieter than the Aorus at 100% fan speed. Yes, the difference is noticeable and it runs slightly cooler than the Aorus too. One thing I feel that the Asus and MSI design gets right with their cards is that the memory section is being cooled by a midplate between the cooler and the PCB board. This also structurally prevents much sag also unlike the Aorus which is just a huge copper block cooling both memory and GPU.

I have played around with the card extensively for a couple of days and this is my best run with the card. I have a 140mm ML140 Corsair fan that blows into the fins of the backplate and that helps with cooling alot. Look below for my run with Timespy.

Basically, I'm at +101Mhz for core and +360Mhz for memory. Can go higher for memory but GDDR5X loosens timing as you go higher and your scores remain the same or become less and I find around +350Mhz gives the best results for memory. Core max is +101 with +100% voltage in afterburner. If I don't utilise voltage at all, my max overclock would be +95Mhz for the core and will boost to 2,062.5Mhz only. Memory remains the same at +360Mhz.

Also,I've maxed out this card as it's already hitting the max 1.093V which is the max Pascal GP102 is allowed to run by Nvidia. I will never use this settings for 24/7 and only for benches. Regular 24/7 I'll just max out power limit and thermal limit and let GPU boost handle everything as what some of you have mentioned. I'll use my more aggressive fan curve to keep my boost clocks more or less linear as temps will be much more controlled.

I don't mind the slightly more audible noise as these fans are double bearing fans and they are so much more efficient at >80%. Basically it's set to run at 100% above 60 degrees and trust me, these torx fans on the MSI is seriously quiet. At least to me cause my Aorus was noticeably louder. There is a slight coil whine during Timespy but it is hardly audible unless you concentrate and place your ears near the card.

So for those looking for an alternative between the usual brands, I'd say MSI is a very good consideration. The card works flawlessly, software is tip top from MSI Gaming app to Afterburner.

Exactly the same for me. But you can try 90-95Mhz and see if it works.
Mine works great on +95 Mhz Core and +350 Mhz Memory without any voltage.
I initially tried 100 Mhz Core and it crashed during Timespy. You can only hit 100 and beyond with voltage at least for me and possibly you.
Unless you are really golden on Silicon Lottery.

Mine does 110 on the core stable with no voltage, that is not to brag. Just a data point. I don't overclock mine at all in every day use. I also don't really care about benchmark scores, I just overclocked it the first couple of days I had it, to see where it would go.

I have been toying with the idea of getting another one for SLI, but I really like how quiet my pc is with only one in it. I am also pretty happy with the gsync monitor, and I kind of think that defeats the need for SLI, not sure though so I am really on the fence. Anyone have two of these, and can say how the noise and temps are?

The problem is that most of the 100+ core you guys are having success with will not crash in benchmarks most of the time. I have found that in intensive games, its a different story. What is stable in benchmarks is not stable in actual games sadly

Well I played BF1, BF4, The Division, Ghost Recon WIldlands, Dishonored 2, and Prey at 110mhz fine. Lucky card i guess.

You must have won the silicon lottery bigtime. Crysis 3 and Witcher 3 cause crash at +100Mhz. I have not touched voltage at all and I set power limit and temp limit at maximum. i also have a custom fan curve and I don't see more than 75 degrees under load

I don't think it is that huge of a win, a lot of other card owners are hitting much higher. 110 bump up isn't unheard of. That 110 puts it at what 2035 to 2050 ish...I think probably about 40% of the cards are hitting that pretty easily. Silicon lottery winners are hitting 2100.
