Gigabyte GTX 1080TI Gaming OC 11GB Overclock Guide
 
Hello I do overclock guides in another forums and today I will guide you to do one of the best overclocks in this GPU.

Avoid stupid ideas or questions and follow this steps if you want to get better performance in your gigabyte gaming oc 11gb.

Main ideas:

1 - The bests overclocks have always watercooling. This is a guide with watercooling.

2 - The best overclock is not the higher clock that your card can get without crashing. Its the clock that give you the best performance in a benchmark test.

3 - Don't flash a different BIOS in your videocard.

The components that we will use are:

- Motherboard MSI Z270I Gaming Pro;
- Gigabyte 1080 TI Gaming OC 11GB;
- Kraken G12;
- Kraken X62;
- Coolermaster Masterbox Q300L.


To start, as you know, this gpu have worse benchmarks than 1080TI from evga, zotac and msi.

Dissassembly the original cooler and the fans:

After the cooler have been removed, I used heatsinks to cover the different chips and vrams:

Then, I buy a Kraken G12 mount and, after a long analysis, I found that the best option value/performance/noise was the Kraken X62.

This is the final result:

After the hardware have been selected and mounted I started the software part.

You need to install the nztx software to control ONLY the fans.

For the overclock, you will use the msi afterburner and this are the clocks that I used:

Of course I could use higher clocks BUT it will not improve the performance.

Better late than never ;)


Anyway now is the time to buy 1080ti and not buy 2080 or 2080ti so I think that this guide isnt late.


New pics links.

I was considering a G12/X62 for my 1060, but my 1080 Ti barely hits 60c on the air cooler (and it's quieter than my 1060).

those mini heatsinks, did you glue em to the vrm, vram? what were the temps?

glue'd are pain to take off, if u ever must, even saw some ppl actually dmg vram chip by trying to take em off.

i might use some and put on top of my back plates, should help a lot with good airflow from front. it will look like gipsy mod but nowdays there are no backplates with heatsinks like those small ones -.-

my top card back plate is sometime warm to touch, wouldnt say hot but aint far from it, even when back fan is mounted as intake and blows some air on it but without success to cool it down a lot since surface is, how it is...

Those mini heat sinks come with thermal tape on them and based on the picture he posted, he used them on his memory modules, mosfets, and VRM.

So what kind of overclocks and temps are you getting w/your Gigabyte 1080Ti Gaming OC w/the kraken installed?

those heatsinks didnt have any glue.


i buy tape ultra thin from 3m (1st picture) and used so its easier to remove in the future if i need.


also there are videos on the internet that show if you remove the main heatsink from the gpu that normaly is sticky with the vram, and switch to a fan (kraken g12) the temperatures drop 10ºC.

About the clocks you can check the best performance overclock in my image that is in the first post.


About the temperature, all depends of the speed that I put in my fans.


If I put 100% fan speed in my fans I got: 24ºC


But as I like the "sound of the silence" I put my fans at 30% so usually I´m in 51ºC (as you can see in the 1st post too).



Both temperatures in full load.

Nice job. Are you sure you can't squeeze more out of it than 2062Mhz.? Maybe by raising vcore a little higher?
