devilhead So my experience with 2080ti lightning with Bitspower waterblock. The card size is huge with block, but he size this time doesn't matter so first some problems with "safe mode" stuck 1350mhz, but found bios - flashed with fans plugged. For now it works, temps ar ok, max at room temp 24c at gameplay is around 38C OC. But now is the funny part for stable gaming i can reach 2050-2070mhz Memory oc is ok, because of samsung +1400. one year i used reference 2080ti with EK waterblock, was rock solid gaming card 2130mhz, after i got Titan RTX, that could do same 2130mhz for gaming i don't understand HOF/ Kingpin card are cherry picked and asking more money because of that, but why lightning?

Eh, 1 guy welded a half a 7970 to his Titan..these things happen.

I'm sure it was a month's pay for him. The Titan alone.

No risk= No reward.

That instance ended up in fail.
I've had fail instances myself. It happens.

That 1 guy is still on the top of many benchmarks.

Years later.

Today I shunt-modded a gtx 1080 Ti. Why? Because I know how to do it, and it works and free performance.

Shunt mod with dead headphone wire and eraser to hold it in place. LOL!

It works! This card is a dog, but it's good enough for me.

The pursuit of performance, baby!

Imagine how I would connect fans on a card that doesn't have them after flashing vbios so you saved me time money and frustration
