gpvecchi Are you on latest bios?

Varjo I'm having a very niche issue with my card (1080ti extreme) and wondering if anyone else has encountered a solution. I've used it with a DVI monitor for over a year, no problem, but have recently switched to a different DVI monitor, the Dell 3007wfp. Apparently, this monitor is an "auto sensing" monitor, and it seems to not like the 1080ti. What appears to be happening is that the monitor is not detected during boot, causing the card to always load the hdmi (and not the DVI) bios. Is there any way to force this damn thing to stay in DVI mode?

Looks like I would need the F3P version ending 9E since my current BIOS ends 5E - right?

I wonder why Gigabyte is releasing a new BIOS this late when the card isn't even manufactured anymore?
The conspiracy theorist in me wonders if Nvidia want to slow the 1080ti down to make me buy RTX!

I would like to push my OC a little more and have felt the card has never gone as far as it could.
I can get 2038Mhz at low 60's temps, but occasional crashes in some titles.

Appreciate any input
I have a watercooled Aorus (normal version, not extreme) 1080ti. This is my bios: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-spec...-1080-ti.b4397
My best tip in overclocking this card is to curve-overclock and not slider-overclock, and either get a power-free bios like FTW3 Kingpin fix (but remain only with DP and DVI outputs), OR stick with stock bios but undervolt when overclocking instead of overvolting.
I can do 2076 core / 6000 memory on ~45c, 1.05V which very rarely power limits and never crashes. Aorus cards seem to be good core overclockers but memory will artifact on some tests/games at 6100+.

gpvecchi No, your bios is newer, I checked the build date. BTW, do you have a DVI monitor? If so, can you please dump your bios? This card uses different bioses if DVI/HDMI/Displayport monitors are connected.

Quick question

Hey there guys,

Just wanted to come over quick and ask a quick question for people with the Aorus Xtreme edition. Had this card a little while now, more than happy with it. Been solid since installing. Just today had an odd occurence that I have never had before and wanted to see if anyone more experienced than I could offer some clarity. Turned on my PC today and was just downloading new Nvidia drivers when my monitor shut off with blinking light and my GPU went dark except for the two white LEDs above the power connector. Never had any issue like this before, everything has been rock solid since I upgraded my rig. Had to manually power off and the restart and we are all good again now? Anyone else experience this before? I tried to find something similar but thought no better place to ask than here. System is not that old as just last year pretty much rebuilt the PC. Any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance!

fan header on aurous 1080ti

hey guys, I have just installed an evga 120mm aio on my gpu with kraken g12 mount. thing is I want to be able to control fan speed as I could before, with MSI afterburner.
now there are 2 headers I can plug in my pwm fan adapter to, but I used 2 different adapters (since I thought my first is DOA or something) but none of them works, when I plug the fan (noctua's 92mm instead of the crap kraken's) to a motherboard header, it works, so I wonder if those 2 headers I tried are the wrong headers? maybe it's just for rgb or something else, could you please guide me and tell me where the fan header is sitting at? thanks a lot!

I have a base Aorus 1080 Ti (non extreme) and it gets *hot* (80ºC) when playing, and would really like to go with a hybrid route. I had an EVGA 1080 FTW Hybrid and loved it, but traded it in for this Ti. I don't really want to go the Kraken route, but will if there's simply nothing out there anymore for these things. Any input would be super appreciated. Thanks.
I have the standard version as well. The Alphacool kit seems nice and robust. I'll tell you this, I went with the Kraken G12 and I'm very pleased. I bought the bracket, some mini heatsinks, thermal tape, a Be Quiet! 92mm fan, Kraken X41, 2x Noctua AF-14 Chromax, and a NA-FC1 to link the fans. With 24c ambient, typical gaming temps are 44-50c with quiet operation (fans spin up to ~1200RPM). If I ramp up all the fans to maximum and run the most powerful stress test - FireStrike Ultra, the temps will stay right around 48 (51 with the quiet profile). The card is overclocked to 2063/6000 at 1.043V, but it can handle higher voltages easily (with custom bios, I could do 2088/6100 at 1.093V).
The card went through ~150 hours of gaming if not more, and about 50, if not more, runs of FireStrike Ultra and TimeSpy Extreme stress loops. So overall you can achieve excellent results with the G12.
Note I bought way too much stuff, you can get away with just the standard bracket, a simpler cooler like H55 (had that too, temps increase by about 8c), the standard fans, and maybe no heatsinks, although personally I wouldn't do it (they're very easy to apply).

I might be wrong, but Id be happy to help check it out


EDIT


Mine is specifically as follows from back of card
GV-N108TAORUS-11GD


Does that match what you are looking for? My card works fantastic, and I could try and make a clean upload of the BIOS for you


EDIT #2 my card is NOT the extreme model, so I dont think it will work. Crap
I have non-extreme, so it will work for me if you could upload it. Thanks.
As for the BIOS on gigabyte site, it's not a direct rom, at least from what I noticed. So I can't just go and use "nvflash64 -6 aorus.rom" or something like that. I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to do that.


I did end up finding the right bios for DVI but it's really confusing. If you try to flash the wrong bios into DVI, the card will not function properly. Oddly enough if you try to flash any OTHER bios over DVI, it will work just fine.
