For black friday I managed to pick up a Gigabyte Aorus 1080Ti Waterforce WATERBLOCK (not aio one) for $425 BRAND NEW.
For some back story, my previous GPU was a watercooled Vega 56, which I managed to powerplay mod and get a World-Record (for vega 56) score of about 22,300 on firestrike. This card got 24,000 which is lame for a GPU that sells for 2.5x more.
As for some more back story, i really, really hate nVidia as a company. Only reason I got the card was because how cheap it was, I haven't owned an nVida product since 2013.
Anyways, I need some tips and tricks on Overclocking this card to the limit (which I already did on stock bios). I managed to do +150 power, +100 volt, +50 core, +350 memory and thats my maximum. +55 on core crashed 3DMark.
I know about the Shunt mod, and would be willing to do it, but I would preferably like to do a simple BIOS flash. Which XOC bios is capable of working on this card? Do I still need to shunt mod? I wanna squeeze everypoint and FPS out of this card as possible, I love overclocking and enjoy it.
Here's the video of me breaking the Vega 56 record on 3DMark:
