Yeah as long as I can get 2GHz I’m alright with that, even if its 2001MHz. Card arrived today and will probably test later on tonight and post my results.

Edit: Did some testing on the card, without even doing anything in Afterburner except creating a fan curve it boosted straight to 2012MHz, that's stock power limit, stock voltage etc.

Furthest I’ve had mine boost on stock volts with a +100MHz overclock is 2100MHz, fluctuates between like 2066 and 2088MHz depending on the temp it stays at. Afterburner does let me do 100% fan speed if I want but its freaking loud so 75% is as high as I can go without hearing it over everything. I’d say I’m pretty lucky I guess. I’ve heard that Pascal is mostly limited to what 1.09v or something so I am assuming moving the voltage slider wouldn’t really do a whole lot so I opted not to even bother with “overvolting”. If I need more GPU horsepower in the future then I may do it.

It is pretty nice to actually see my i7-5775C above 30% utilization for once in its life during games, for the longest time I thought I was CPU bottlenecked but my old 290X really was holding me back way worse than I thought.

Also would like to add in case anyone was wondering, don’t use driver 418.81, that driver prevented my 1080 from going into its idle state of 139MHz and it just stayed right at 1709MHz with fans not spinning at all, so temps would creep up in the 60-70C range. I dropped down to 417.71 (I think was the version) and it works as it should.

hey guys. need a little help and heads up.

i am buying a new gigabyte windforce 1080 oc edition today or tom (depending upon time). now can anyone guide me regarding

what sort of base performance i should be expecting with boost 3.0. and also

since this card comes with only 1 8 pin, what bioses can i flash to ensure maximum performance. (i mean palit or strix t4 or any other)

how should i play with the voltage curve. i am not new to overclocking but since i was using a 980ti earlier, i have no idea how the voltage curve should play. i know that keeping the card cool gives the best results but since i cant loop i kinda would settle for best temp to performance ratio.

and last how good this gigabyte version actually is?..i can buy a palit (40$ less) and a zotac mini (10 $less) but both are well used. with this one the seller says its brand new box sealed hence m kinda inclining towards it.

thx.

so guys...i ended up buying the gigabyte windforce just because it actually was box sealed new as the seller said. but as is my luck always..i ended up losing the silicon lottery. my card stock boosted up to 1911mhz and settled at late 1800s with temps around 64c with my custom fan curve.

i then started to play with the clocks. adding 25 mhz on increment and using heaven i started to crash at anything above 2012mhz. raising the voltage or power limit only found that 2012 ran with higher volts + power throttle. but since the chip itself is as bad as my ******* LUCK (i really like oc'ing for the fun of it) i dont think it can handle even 2050. however i thought since i have my stable at core i might as well lower the volts for the sake of it .

playing the v/f curve for the above said challenge with max volt and power i figured that i can least achieve 2000mhz at 1.05v. at this point the card doesnt power throttle much and stays between 1950-2000 (2000 90% of the time due to lower volts). i couldnt find time to test for same freq at even lower volts.

i might as well mention all these tests were done with memory clocked at +550.

what do u guys think should be the lowest volt for 2000mhz. i mean i really havent got the energy to test all volts between 1.5 and 1. so any ideas would be nice.

another strange thing i noticed was that with memory oc'd i found my card to power throttle harder than with only a clock oc. any ideas on that as well?

as i said earlier m not new to oc'ing and did my fair part on 970 and 980 ti.

another thing to add is that i cant water cool. my custom fan curve at 65% gives me 65c. i dont wanna raise the fans much due to noice.

closing request. how can raise my performance with the above stated conditions.

ty.

lolz m really sry this post is getting long but i thought i should mention. i read like the last 100 pages honestly. but i really couldnt find much about windforce. so if anyone can actually link me to a possible high power limited bios for my 8 pin

Fyi you need to do the core or the memory first. Typically you go for core and get it totally stable before messing with memory, since these cards have ECC you NEED to run heaven or valley benchmark (windowed, high res) and enable "walk" in the camera settings so you can render the exact same thing over and over. Now put AB over top Heaven/Valley and bring the memory up while watching the frame rate. Once you see the frame rate start dropping take the speed back about 20Mhz or so.




Not sure how accurate this is today but in the past we had the G1 Gaming and the Windforce. Same exact cards but the G1s were binned higher with less limitation in the BIOS. You might try flashing the G1 before anything else since you know it will work 100%. When cross flashing you need to flash from a GPU with the same pin count or there's a good chance of bricking it or getting bad performance.
2000Mhz is really good, I can't even get 2000mhz in games. Usually only runs at around 1960mhz.

ty for replying man. what u said is exactly what i do. i benched using heaven in windowed with AB. the core oc's were found without mem. i havent really found a mem max oc but thought 550 was ok enough ( i did bench 700+ on mem but dialed it back coz i was tired and didnt want to really find the max, i might do it today and find lower volts as well).

yeah i kinda realized that 8 pin to 8 pin is the best bios bet. but do u really think g1 with the better binned chip would have any diff at the bios level. i am not saying that maxwell and pascal are the same but i dont really think the basic of bios engineering differs a lot, i mean ive gone through a lot of bioses with my 980ti and the only diff i could ever find was power draw and higher base clocks. but since the WF3 chip m sure is not a champ, higher base oc's might cripple my sad little chip. plus g1 has the same power draw to the WF. thats all just my guess..maybe m wrong. but does the bios level really differ beyond what is evident i.e power draw and base clocks.?

ok another update. m gonna keep this thread alive...lolz kidding..i really any input i can get. anyways.

played with lower volts on 2000mhz. went 1.043 which was stable. the went to 1.032 which crashed immediately. hence i went back upto 1.05 on 2000mhz for a little head room.

tweaked the v/f curve a bit more for stable clocks for more stable performance. tried my overclock check from AB oc scanner. it gave me 90% confidence.

then later not having fulfilled my hunger to extract the max, i flashed the latest g1 gaming bios from techpowerup using the latest nvflash (i guess its 5.XXX)..flashed fine but upon reboot my memory was stuck at 405 mhz...gave me a scare. flashed my stock backed up bios and all went fine again.

so i guess this is it...unless someone can tell me what went wrong with my flashing or even if flashing a g1 bios would prove to be any beneficial, m ok with my clocks. getting 64 fps on shadow of the tomb raider @ 1440p all settings maxed out(stock AA).

Seriously 2000mhz on air is not bad, I don't even get that and have great framerate at 1440p. As for the memory just read a few pages back, you're card could have the same BIOS issue theirs did.

Hi guys. I am now officially an owner of a EVGA SC gtx 1080. I am a little late to the game(came from a 980 ti) but I am excited. I wanted to go over a couple things with you guys.

1. From what I remember reading that because there are no custom bios with pasal and it's pretty locked down voltage wise etc that the best way to get the best overclocks is keeping thermals down. Is this true?

2. ^^ If true, outside of keeping my side panel off and putting the card on water, does anyone have any cool diy cooling tips/tricks they wanna share? I currently have an old 3000rpm 80mm fan sitting atop the card over the VRM area(it was a little tip someone gave me from the maxwell days with my 980 ti)

3. Does anyone have a certain driver they love and feel like performs the best/ is most stable with the 1080? I am on the latest 418.91 and it seems to be fine but of course if there's something better out there I want it.

4. Does core clock or memory clock make the biggest difference in added fps? Right now without much tweaking I am stable at 2100mhz on the core and 5200mhz on the memory clock.

5. Just double checking, there aren't any worthwhile custom bios for the gtx 1080, correct? Lol.
