Thanks, testing some different voltage curves in Afterburner using the Extreme bios on my non Extreme vanilla 1080Ti card. I highly doubt there is a big difference, the biggest difference is probably slightly higher stock/default clocks on the Extreme bios (which is nice if not overclocking using Afterburner). If overclocking using Afterburner I doubt the Extreme bios giving higher performance comparing to to non Extreme bios on a non Extreme card.Meh, all the 3 cards share the same hardware, but Aorus and Extreme share same cooling, so you'll have no issues if your chip keeps the clock. WB has better cooling, so card can go too high on temps and crash.
Same for bios with removed power limit, useless on air.
Not sure yet if I will go for maximum performance or if I will try to optimizing a 1000 mV curve in Afterburner giving me slightly lower temps and perhaps a more stable fps. Did some quick tests yesterday and a 1000 mV curve giving me between 10200 - 10300 in Time Spy comparing to when going for maximum performance I reached between 10700-10800.
Yes, unfortunately I have air cooling too. Talking about GPUs then cooling with water helps a lot, that's for sure. Many users are using AIO for CPU but not for GPU, probably a mistake since water cooling the GPU would give many users a bigger total performance boost (at least for gaming) comparing to water cooling the CPU. Perhaps I will try cooling GPU with water in the future. Very nice being able to run the system more quiet and with higher performance.
