    Undervolting works great for the 3080. In 10-15 mins you can get a nice cut on temps and W without losing performance.

    Got mine at 1950MHz with 0.925V, dont remember the exact numbers but was around 10ºC cooler and 50-60W less.

    I just got the EVGA 3070ti via Newegg shuffle. So does that mean I can join the step up queue for a 3080? I’m a little confused on if you can step up to cards that are already out or if it’s only newly released cards after you buy one.

    It's for cards that are already out.

    I haven't had an EVGA card in a while, but as far as I recall you can step up to higher tier (price) of any cards that are released until your step-up window expires, including those that have already been released when you bought the card.

    Awesome thanks guys. Worked out pretty well for me then. Only payed $70 over MSRP for a bundled PSU and will only have to drop another $80 to step up to the card I wanted in the first place. I’m sure it will take a while but at least I have something good now to tide me over. That 980 ti just isn’t cutting it anymore.

    Does anyone know if EK backplates installed on already water-cooled 3080 make things worse or better?
    Sometimes I touch the black plate in gaming and it's the hottest thing in the case!!
    I have the very basic EVGA 3080 XC3 Black, no FTW etc etc
    Some people say it can cause coilwhine, which I have in abundance.

    i dont know about your first question but all 3080/3090 have very hot memories even at idle, but it is fine while you dont stress it with some mining stuff. The best way to keep it always safe is to improve your case airflow.
    Also check your hotspot and memory temps with GPU Z.

    I'm running an EK Backplate and waterblock on my Palit 3080 Gaming Pro, memory temps are 34 degrees idle and max around 42 degrees under load, Hot spot is 42 degrees under load as well.

    Anyone else have the MSI Ventus 3x RTX 3080 OC card. Wondering what the optimal settings for temps and performance.
