Future will be difficult. The Phoenix line is EOL which is why it's on a super cheap clearance sale now at EK and local retailers that still have stock. I'm in EU and the blocks about €76 for a reference and they have some AIB blocks as well for a few € more. The rads sold out for the 240 version tho. Might need to source that from a retailer or online shop.
I fancy a bit of YOLO. Time to play with the XOC BIOS at 1.2v.. hehe..
If for some reason it goes pop, well I haven't sold my 2080 yet so...
EDIT: Oh god.. this thing LOVES voltage lol. Here's half an hour of Borderlands 3 on 1.200v XOC BIOS with 2152Mhz core. Had memory on a pretty basic OC, nowhere near what it can do (~6500Mhz and maybe even more).
I'm kinda scared i will absolutely blow the VRM to the moon and beyond with this load tho. It is hitting around 350w average load peaking at 380w ish.
Would it survive that? lol.
EDIT2: It needs every bit of 1.200v for 2152Mhz. Dropping a couple of voltage bins to 1.180 ish crashes almost instantly. Card hit almost 70c core in Division 2 so I can only imagine the VRM temps at a constant 370w load @ 1.200..
I'm going a little easier on the card as it is well known GTX10xx hates high temps when overclocking so I'm testing 2126Mhz @ 1.162v now. It ran for a good while on 1.143v but crashed Borderlands 3 after a out 10 minutes so I upped it a bit and let's let it run AFK for a while. It's already looking way better lol. 64c so far and temps equalized nicely. It's sitting around 340-355w now according to hwinfo.
