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!

Shane

Have 1080ti Aorus Extreme Edition.
Came with BIOS 86.02.39.40.5E

I see there's new BIOS versions from August 22nd 2019 on the Gigabyte site.
https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Graphics-Card/GV-N108TAORUS-X-11GD/support#support-dl-bios

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

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.

I have a watercooled Aorus (normal version, not extreme) 1080ti. This is my bios: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/gigabyte-aorus-gtx-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+.

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?

Hi, so I have some problems with a Aorus 1080ti xtreme the problem is that the card is not being recognised in any of my systems besides a x99. Systems that I tried for now and nothing.

-Asus z390 Maximus XI Hero
-Asus z370 Maximus X hero
-Evga z170 Classified K
-Gigabyte Aorus z390 Master
Yet on my Asus X99 Pro its working and giving video output any ideas what would be the problem here? Tried different bios as well with no luck.

Yesterday I tried to flash bios taken from official Gigabyte Aorus 1080Ti page. And... It can't be flashed :) Tried different variants and always get "This BIOS version does not match". So, I used latest .rom for extreme version from techpowerup, flashed it with nvflash and now I can oc my gpu like extreme without limits of usual aorus. But I have one last question: is .rom from techpowerup latest? Cause it was uploaded in 2018, and latest bios from gigabyte, that i can't flash, from 2019.09(?)

Any way to adjust the lights on these things without the Gigabyte RGB program that simply doesn't work?

So I have a very weird issue. The problem seems to be the displayport bios is corrupted. Basically my card only display's if I have something plugged into DVI before turning on my PC. Connecting DVI after the POST does nothing. If I have my second monitor plugged in via DVI it will POST but mobo gives a error code related to GPU only if I have something also plugged into displayport. If only using DVI and HDMI then no mobo error beeps. If I have something plugged into DVI and DP then I get bios beeps for no GPU however it proceeds to boot to windows and displays normally. I can then log in and do whatever I want including gaming with relatively zero issues. Part of the problem is I've been thinking about selling this card to try and get a 2080 or 2080 Ti, but obviously people need DP working without DVI. I'm just lucky to have a 2nd monitor that only has DVI. I've tried flashing the bios with a few different Stock bios's. Mine is the Aorus Xtreme Edition as well, but obviously it's only writing to the DVI bios. I tried hooking up an old GTX 650 that I know works, and making the 1080 Ti a secondary GPU but I get no video output on either GPU. So what I'm left with is tomorrow I plan on buying a Ryzen 3400G to replace my 1600 so I can enable onboard graphics and then only connect the 1080 Ti to my displayport monitor and try to flash the DP BIOS. I might keep the card, but ever since getting this new monitor I've been using DP so I can do 2560x1440 @ 120hz with HDR10 and GSync however, it's finicky. When going into a game the monitor black screens for a solid 5ish seconds while switching to GSync, and sometimes when I change windows volume in full screen game it black screens twice while trying to overlay the windows volume in the top left. I have a feeling it's the DP bios issue. I doubt there's another way, and I think it's unlikely someone will see this before I try the 3400G, but I figured I'd make a post and see what happens.

Any thoughts with this issue?

Tried Asus Strix Bios, EVGA Bios and other Aorus bios but nothing seems to work any thoughts'?

Hi, I've recently bought an used 1080ti non-extreme.

1- Is there any benefit from update to a newest bios?
2- Regarding temps, the card is almost in contact with my noctua nh-d15 and ambient temp is nearly 25C. Playing some COD:MW campaing, the card reachs 77C, is this ok? the fans are dead silence if I compare to my previos 1080 G1 Gaming.

thanks

Regarding 2: I re applied thermal paste, mx-4, and now temps are 73/74C with fans on auto (60%), so an improve overall

I've used Arctic Silver on my Xtreme version, and I normally use MSI Afterburner and set custom fan curve for normal use, then I have 2 profile's saved. 1st is for 150% power limit and 90% constant fan speed, and the second is 130% power limit, 90C temp limit, and 90% constant fan speed, which under full load I'm typically below 70C all the time, even several hours into gaming. Usually between 50-68C depending on the game. I also have a Thermaltake View37 that I leave the side panel off, with the GPU vertically mounted, and my room fan I sometimes turn off it's rotate and let it point air directly at my computer from across the room, which helps when room temp is pretty warm, like 70F or hotter.

thanks for your feedback. I need to play a little with the fan curve to achieve better clocks, and this could be related to curve OC which I read it's better for this GPUs

Hey Fellow! I'm In the same desperate situation like you. I search as well for the latest 86.02.39.40.5E DVI-Version.
Did you had success in the meantime finding this version?

My original Bios is F20 and cannot be udpated with latest BIOS from GB Website. I have the old (not passwort protected) Bios' F3/F3P which can be flashed with nvflash. But I really like to have that 86.02.39.40.5E :)

I found nothing...nowere - Only some posts in different forums of some "other" guys searching for the same.
But I guess its you all the time :)

Is there a bios that doesn't make this GPU crash at 72-73C? Pretty much the only game I have this issue with is Overwatch. Basically if I don't have my room fan pointed at my open case and GPU fan at 100% then it reaches 72-73C and Overwatch crashes saying it lost the rendering device, if I keep room fan pointed at case and gpu fans at 100% then it stays below 70C and game doesn't crash. Other games I play I can keep fan at 90% like the new MW, and temps average 55C. Why tf is overwatch causing gpu to heat up to 72C and why would it crash the driver at 72C? And I know its not my CPU because I play 1440p high refresh, and cpu utilization is low, and cpu temps are low because of 280MM aio liquid cooler, cpu temps are maybe 30-40c.

Overwatch is a weird game, this rendering device thing is a known issue although I haven't heard about temp issues.
Anyway, you don't need to edit or flash any bios, just download msi afterburner and downclock the card to something like 90% power limit, 1V, 1900MHz, should be fully stable and not heat
