I think my paste job is crap. My card runs in the mid 1950 and can get in to the mid to upper 70s when I'm gaming. I really wish EK would hurry up with the FTW3 water blocks, the release date keeps getting quietly pushed back. I'm still not getting the custom voltage curve down. Every time I set a speed and voltage then lock it to a a specific point it still moves around like it's not locked, am I doing something wrong?

Its a 3D graph. The settings you set are only relevant for whatever temperature band you GPU was on at the time. IIRC you need to set a curve every 5C temperature band.

You guys with an FTW3 who want to put it on water may find the following interesting. Just received an update regarding the ETA for EK's block for it from EK support:

Thank you for reaching out to us.

We apologize about the multiple delays on this waterblock and we thank you again for your continued patience.

We are now anticipating the EVGA 1080 TI FTW3 waterblock to be released in early July. If you wish, you can subscribe to our newsletter and we will send you an e-mail when we have the official announcement for it that will provide preorder information and dates when it will begin shipping out.


If EVGA comes up with a Hydro Copper version before then, I may go with that; or sell the FTW3 and simply use the 1080 EK X cards I already have on hand and wait for Volta.

Is EK the only company coming out with a 1080ti FTW3 block? Back when I got my 780 classified's there were a few to pick from.

EVGA is the only other company I know of which might release a block (in their Hydro Copper line).

I actually came to this thread to see if anyone knew when the FTW3 Hydro Copper would be released? JayzTwoCents did a brief preview of it in one of his latest videos.

Well after running my current GTX 680 for 5 years (4 under water) I have finally retired it and slotted in the new hotness biggrin.gif This also marks my first non reference card as well. From the 7800gt till just yesterday all I used were reference designed cards and I got to say this card is huge





Will put it on water after EK releases the block for it as the QDC's show thumb.gif

But on air I was able to get this out of Unigine's SuperPosition Benchmark
