Haven't tried the kill-a-watt since then. Not a fan of Vsync at all actually.

Is a pair of 1080 Ti's even fast enough for that configuration? Doesn't seem like it would be.

Sure is! Project Cars 2 hits the magical 144hz with No AA and No motion.

re: guy asking about Ltng SLI temps

I'm getting low 60's top card high 60's bottom card open case but 6 case fans disabled looping Unigine Heaven benchmark maxed out 8K

running a pathetic overclock though (1.99GHz core 11.40GHz mem)...my goal was just to match stock Titan Xp SLI performance without the jet engines taking off and I think it meets that bar without breaking a sweat.

What app and game were you using to bench the temps at full load?  What's your ambient?

Thank you for the nice comment 😀 They do run better than I expected temp wise. Althpugh its getting cool up here in the northeast although it was almost 80 saturday.

I have two EVGA 1080Ti FTW3's in SLI along with a 5820K pulling 700-800 Watts load alone using four separate 6+2 PCIe cables.  It's usually recommended to use six separate cables to feed your setup instead of piggybacking the cables like that (At least four).

I can't speak for Corsair but i'd imagine the idea is the same as this Seasonic diagram:

While I get what you are saying regarding the daisy chain, It's prob not optimal. But I pretty much put the system through he ringer for the last couple days. not one hiccup. at all. I do.. however plan on getting a 1200 watt unit very shortly. Buying the 2nd lightning was top priority because they are becoming scarce.. quick. Try finding one new or on ebay =) 0 to be had. So the second I found one I had to snap buy it. which was not cheap lol. PSU is ideally the next step. I will be upgrading to a 7820x or a 7900x after that to complete the system Then drop some EK water cooling flare in there too. The way I have this running at the moment power supply wise is 3 separate double 8 pin leads off the PSU with 1 plug off each lead going to each card. So it is the best and safest split possible for load on the PSU imo. The 850w psu does not have 6 pci-e ports on it so this is the best possible setup for this psu. the Corsair Ax1200i has 8 ports and is likely what I will upgrade to with 6 separate custom sleeved plugs for the gpu's

:thumbsups  Yea i figured as much. Looking fwd to your final build.

heaven benchmark

a typical room temp 22-23 Centigrade. I live in the northwest and the heater's running in the house.

I've left memory default...to even match Titan Xp bandwidth you need to be clocked up to almost 12.5 GHz...the Ti's stock matches Vega's HBM2 specs so that's good enough for me as I find there's basically negligible gains in mess'n with the mem.

Not touching the volts. At the end of day, longevity is more important to me. Yes it's overkill to run dual 1080 Ti chips only @ 2GHz on a beefy overengineered platform...I guess at least they're collector's items even few months in worth more alive than dead so there won't be too big of a hit whenever the big Volta Lightnings come online....good gosh I hope they can go with that name..Volta Lightnings.

speaking of longevity...anyone setup a good fan curve? I wonder if hybrid fan that kicks in at 60 degrees is worse than just running them at lower rpm consistently. The idea of idling at 60 degrees instead of the review samples at 25 degrees also seems to worry me a bit.

Just ordered a Lightning Z from newegg boyz, first time using newegg im a bit nervous, really used to amazon prime. I noticed the Lightning Z had a replacement only return policy, hope all goes well. I was initially waiting for the Gaming X Trio but after seeing every single review the Tomshardware german site had a 30 minute burn test for the trio which the other reviews didn't do and the memory vrm and memory module area hit the high 90's Celsius, thats a no go for me. It seems the Trio sacrifices memory and mem vrm cooling for Gpu and gpu vrm cooling, as their test had the trio with lower Gpu temps than the lightning. Pretty dissapointed that the trio has 100 C mem temps, so I went for the lightning as it has the best overall cooling and noise of every other 1080 ti there is, for air cooling of course. Il post updates on Overclocks and temps when i get it. Wish me luck boyz.



Heres a direct comparison of identical test scenarios for both cards at stock settings and fan curves. *** on the Trio??! high 90s is crazy, arent those components rated for 90 C? If anyone here was looking at the trio, I would look away and get something else. Apparently the trio gpu vrm is also insanely hot, thank god i spent hours looking at all these reviews. The 3 eight pins really bothers me though, im pretty sure they arent necessary from what Ive seen but maybe it helps somewhere with something I dont understand.
