I got lucky and won the coil lottery with mine. They have never whined.
Interestingly enough, it only really had coil when when the EK block was installed. I noticed the coil whine on my KPE card was louder with the Hydro Copper block as well. Granted, the KPE has MUCH less than the FE with or without a water block installed.

Thanks for the photos! Those will probably help others who want to do the same.

I wonder what your power limit is now.

mattxx88 i did it

i tried with liquid metal and seems works

i insulated resistors with liquid tape, and put a very little drop of liquid metal each resistor

what do you think about copper conductive tape?

Asmodian I had no whine but my guess would be that it would not change it unless you were actually hitting the power limit, where it might just change the tone or something.

You need to get a very specific resistance with Turning GPUs. If you just short the shunts the GPU goes into safe mode, locked to 300 MHz.

If you want to lift the limit as much as you can without putting the card into safe mode you need to solder. A very precise application of liquid metal has been reported to work but that is at least as much of a pain as soldering and you might not lift the power limit very much after finally getting the application light enough to avoid safe mode. I also tried silver conductive pens with no luck.

Doubling the power limit requires adding a 0.005 ohm resistor but that will put the card into safe mode. So we add a 0.008 ohm one, but this only raises the power limit by 62.5%. This means you need to add liquid metal thin enough to provide ~0.008 ohms within about two thousands of an ohm. Also liquid metal will probably change over time so the resistance might go up, lowering the power limit, or down, triggering safe mode. Then there is the liquid metal potentially dissolving the solder under the shunt causing it to fall off... which makes it so the card cannot turn on unless you resolder it.

Renegade5399 You are throttling due to only power limit, correct? Not temp or anything like that?

If only PL, then yes, shunting will give you more headroom.

Those should be the correct resistors. Please verify with a DMM first however. Plenty of videos on how to check continuity out there.

The one in the lower left can be left alone, yes.

Liquid metal is not recommended. Metal pen, while not as corrosive to the components, is still not the best method. Soldering the 8mOhm resistors on is the most reliable way to do this.

I did one of my eVGA 2080Ti's and have been nothing but happy. For 24/7 gaming use, I can set to 2075 core and be done on the stock BIOS which gives me the best memory clocks. Plays everything in 1440p at 144 fps (Gsync max for my monitor). Water cooled, I hit high 40's load after about 60 minutes of gaming and it stays there.

Spoiler!


i am getting mad cause of frequency throttle, can't find a bios that fix it properly.
do you think is possible to shunt it? i did shunt mod on my Titan pascal and worked great for years

this should be the 8pin resistors:

Spoiler!


the one in the left corner should be the pci-e resistor and i think is not fine to shunt it, right?

Spoiler!


do you think using metal pen or liquid metal works? or the only way is soldering 8 mOhms?
