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

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.

GunnzAkimbo 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.


Sad story:

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...

It's really weird, I know the card has more headroom, but it seems like beyond just a power limit throttle, maybe a voltage/hertz limit on the card. If I set the curve to more than 1.05, it doesn't matter what I core clock I set, it will default to some arbitrary number much lower than how I have it set for curve, and if I set more than [email protected], it will default to 2040...There is more left in this chip, I just dont know how to open it up. I feel like it's a BIOS lock to keep from cannibalizing the higher skus, or something.



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.

oblivious Anyone here have an MSI Ventus 8g OC 2080? I ordered one Sunday evening and having a little bit of buyers remorse since I didn't go with a more expensive card. At first I was only concerned about prices but now I'm wondering if the performance and cooling is up to snuff.

Guru3d has a good review of the Galax 2060 Super EX with the same cooler showing great thermal performance and even pretty low noise so.
Yes it seems that way, local pc shop has the galax in stock too.

What is the better option:

Galax 2080S EX = $1189 AUD (best value card here in Aus)
MSI 2080S GXT = $1349 AUD (is it really worth it?)


My case is on the ground, its not for show - for funtionality.
Don't care what it looks like, no one is going to see it.
Noise level would be a secondary but not too loud at 100% usage.
And yer, a basic decent OC would be good for 4K.

Doing both will put the card in safe mode every time(thanks to der8auer's video for finding this). Final overclock is not stupid high or anything, but I got 2040 at 1.05V, max temp of 45C under synthetic load, and it is rock solid during benchmarks and games. Not bad for a non-A chip.
