I think thats quite a good result with a Q3 2014 cpu.

|microchidism||I'm on the fence about grabbing a water-block for my rtx 2080, I read somewhere that for Turing there are no gains to be had by water at all? Can anyone who has gone from air to water confirm this? Just lower temps and more stable boost clocks?|

Please can i join?
I just picked up a MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 8GB SEA HAWK EK X
It is such a beast! Running 2085mhz core and 7700mhz memory at the moment.

Hitting some limit at 1950Mhz boost.
Superposition 4K didn't get through the test...
2200 memory is more than enough.

What else can I use to overclock my 2080 super aorus. I currently use msi after burner but I'm kind of new to overclocking it. I dont think I have a A chip since I can't seem to get past 30mhz on memory of. Unless it's a power issue I currently have the 8 pins plugged in using the one cable that splits into two 8pins if that's right or wrong I'm not sure.
It isn't the preferable way to hook up a graphics cards, but if it is the only way your power supply will provide enough amps to the GPU, then it is unlikely to do any harm. What power supply? I haven't seen those connectors on anything but pretty low quality units.

welp, got a Trio X, glad i did.
Silent card at default fan profile. My entire system is silent now, at last...
So far testing this level of OC with the default fan profile, it will do (see pic).
4K is still hit and miss, not concerned as 2560x1440 in a desktop window on this TV = 36" monitor equivalent.
I was turning the system on and off while troubleshooting many times, then
Unfortunately, upon installing the card, the M.2 drive dismounted itself and is now dead... dunno if its the drive or the socket?
No big deal, was no faster than a normal SSD.
Then, found a dismounted cable that broke out of the mobo ATX connector... had to use another atx cable.
This must have damaged the cpu as it now doesn't like 8 sticks of ram installed.
A simple task of installing a GPU turned into a complete system rebuild!!!! hah, the bull**** in life.
At least it's cleaner and quiter now, besides my cpu, mobo is nearly 5 years old so...

That is pretty impressive for a non-A. Both my A chips (Aorus Xtreme which I traded for a MSI Gaming X Trio) topped out around 2115 on 1.093v but the MSI does occasionally hit the power limit on 1.093v but not enough to warrant a shunt mod tbh.
I didn't know about the bin variant when purchasing, otherwise I would have spent a few more dollars and gotten an A bin. I typically buy the lowest priced card I can find, watercool it, and overclock it til it bleeds...but even after a shunt mod, there seems to be some limits that I just can't break through.
Not bad for a $700 card though. It is in spitting distance of fully overclocked and pricier AIB cards.
Edit to add: MSI Afterburner lost all voltage monitoring with the shunt mod installed.
