TwilightRavens So I just ordered a new monitor (1080p 144hz) a few days ago and I figured i’d ask here before it arrives, would a 1080 be able to push those kinds of frames in a lot of games? I don’t play a lot of super new, super demanding games but my most played are probably Forza Horizon 4, Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn, Sims 4, Fallout 4 (I know the physics are tied to the fps on that and Skyrim), Mass Effect Andromeda etc. But was just curious if anyone was able to get well north of at least 100 fps in games similar to that. CPU isn’t really a bottleneck in my case, Its pretty much overclocked to the max that my cooling allows (only game that really pegs it on all 8 threads is Fallout 4).

Yeah I’ve heard people with even the GDDR5 on 980 ti’s say the same thing, I know my 290X I had before I upgraded to the 1080, you knew when you pushed the VRAM too far, it didn’t have the Error Detection/Correction especially when it looks like a terrifying purple space invaders on top of whatever you were doing. I guess Nvidia started it with Maxwell because neither of my 660’s did that, it just outright crashed if I went too far, didn’t even artifact.

More voltage doen't really give me any boost in clockspeed, at least not stable enough to run any significant benchmark.
For gaming I'm down to around 2179. Above that I get the incidental C2D, and it's quite frustrating when that happens, so better a bit slower and stable. I do realise that I've got a heck of a 1080 (GB GTX1080 G1 Gaming with an EK full cover block), and 2170 stable under heavy gaming is quite rare.

TwilightRavens Woo! Got 2126MHz stable (in firestrike at least) on the highest performance state (1.093v), finally learned how to use the voltage curve graph in afterburner and Pascal overclocking suddenly makes sense. I’ll try and post some pics once i get the graph cleaned up (clocked higher at the lower states). But so far she only drops to 2050 worst case, might be able to do 2113 at the next state (I think its 1.081v right?) and then 2100MHz at the state below that. But as it is my curve is kind of a mess as I didn’t adjust anything below 1.043v, or should mess with those that are lower (I haven’t seen it go below 1.043v when under actual load though).

Skye12977 I was wondering if anyone owned a 1080 Strix and had issues with one of the fans coming loose and thus making noise.
I can simply push the fan back up into place, but it's only a matter of time until it happens again...

Yeah no problem.

Is that fairly good OC?

It would be nice if the voltage was unlocked tho....
