Need Some Help XOC'ing My 1080Ti

Hello all!
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:

XOC bios has no power limit at all.
It does how every have thermal over volting and all safetys removed.
By thermal over volting, Say your at 30C at have 1.1V set. If the card reaches 40C normally it would downclock on other bios. Instead Xoc will add voltage so its easy to get into thermal run away.

Also the XOC bios has loser vram timings so unless your getting a vastly better overclock then one of the ones with just high power limit youll be losing performance.

I'm good at BIOS editing, so I'll play around with it.
I'm on a custom loop with 1x hardware labs 120mm, and a 1x hardware labs 240mm, so I think I'm okay thermally. Can you point me in the right direction to a newest / proper XOC bios?

you can't edit the BIOS on a 1080 Ti, you can use the XOC BIOS or the stock BIOS (or a different card's stock BIOS in some situations), but there is no editing it.

if you want to do that you need a 900 series or older.

I tried flashing the XOC bios but I still get crashes anything past 2076 like before.

woe is you? lol

my 1080 Ti won't finish benchmarks above 1975 and it's not really stable above ~1950 regardless of BIOS.

yes, we remember your vega video. no need for that copy pasta at the start of every thread, i promise you, anyone who did care or thought it was cool is now just annoyed by it.

this forum sports owners clubs for all of these cards with info logged on basic observations in the OP. Pascal likes to run cool, and scores best with a voltage curve. MORE VOLTS =/= better on pascal and turing. COLDER = better, n that's about it. these arches start throttling at 25-40c (temp is debated, not sure i've seen it confirmed)

BIOS alone won't fix that much at all, shunt and LN2 FTW.

oy vey, i'm being too honest again, must be time for sleep.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I tried the XOC and used the Afterburner volt curve to get 2150 stable in benches for the combo that would max out at 2050 otherwise. But my scores didn't improve much. I also tried some other bioses and none were better for my cards than the stock one. I think the ram timings must be nice.

I get a little over 2k all day on stock settings and can push that up 30 or 40 hz, so I just oc the vram, slide up the power limit and usually leave the core at stock. The power limit on the waterforces is plenty to avoid throttling after you give it the +50% slider so I personally don't have much reason to go with anything else.

But since you already have the XOC in there, you may as well check your volt curve and see if adjusting higher clocks for higher volts helps. You seem more motivated to get high scores so you may find good uses if it works.

Can you explain the voltage / frequency more?
Also I found keeping my core around 2063 (away from my 2076 threshold I'm hitting) seems to keep things more stable. My memory is currently +600mhz (6221mhz) in a looping firestrike ultra GT2 test.
My powersupply is a 750watt evga (supernova I think?) Is that fine for my goals? My cpu is a stock ryzen 7 3700x because my Mobo is garbage
