    Spoke to soon on my part. My OLED has a blown Power Supply board and the just want to replace the board and not the TV. Well, that sucks.

    from what I gathered from reputable sources,it's oc that causes problems.
    I know with ventus I'm not going to get any of that anyway.
    I did however watch people live streaming their 3080 ventus on yt an they never said anything about crashing on stock,even though the gpu was boosting in the 1875-1935mhz range (higher than infamous trinity card)
    I don't think the card has the thermal capacity to cool down a +2G oc anyway,and I'm not paying a 20% premium on tuf/trio for that.for 2100 maybe,not for 2G.

    I paid 10% premium for the TUF OC not my wisest decision but hey I had the $ for it

    By the looks of it, it is one of the better cards. If you're happy, that's all that matters. Don't let anyone tell you different.

    Caps only making a 20mhz difference, looks like vbios or driver was the issue. Either way new drivers looking pretty promising that it's fixed :D still waiting for my 3090 to test ><

    I don't see undervolting as a good solution tbh

    I'd pay the 10%
    but in my country it was 20% over Ventus
    10% could only buy me Gigabyte Eagle
    Ventus was pretty much the only AIB card at msrp

    I still wants me that fancy FE,gonna sell Ventus when FE is available.

    I guess it depends on the situation.

    I think there are two major advantages, one being lower temps and the second one is more stable frequencies which could translate to smoother gameplay. I checked out a video where a guy undervolted his FE and he actually got practically identical scores in Division 2 benchmark, lower temps and better frame times.

    The big problem with Ampere is the constant power limit hammering, undervolting seems to alleviate that problem by smoothing out the frequency at a very small performance cost.

    Clearly those crashes seemed linked to sudden jumps in clock speeds (from Derbauer video - sudden jump from 1940Mhz to 2070Mhz) ? In which case hopefully driver maturity could handle this issue?

    It appears to be a capacitor array and driver issue.

    More stable cards at high freq and lower clock speed/voltage look to be the solution.

    Looking forward to further investigation on the topic, but i would keep an open mind on "the issue" if there's any. The RTX 20X0 serie were extremely good overclock cards to the point i would argue they were underclocked.

    The last three generations were actually good overclocking cards, i remember getting a lot out of my 980-ti and 1080, maybe this generation just overclock less and we need to get use to it.

    My GTX1080's been great OC GPUs, one of them would do easily 2164MHz and another 2139MHz, GTX1080Ti that would do 2152MHz at 1.07v

    RTX 2080Ti Strix is still one of best OC'er from 2080Ti series what I tried or tested , Asus RTX 2080Ti Strix doing 2205-2220MHz in benchmarks, in gaming running rock stable 2175-2190MHz and +800MHz on VRAM

    Zotac RTX 2080Ti AMP that card would do 2115MHz as max, in RT games I could run only 2070-2085MHz as max

    Palit RTX 2080Ti that card been one of worst cards, couldn't push that GPU without the hitting power limit and max OC been in range 2055-2070MHz with 1200MHz on VRAM

    Tested as well Gigabyte and MSI which usually OC in region of 2055-2070MHz

    I only tested them under water and not sure how they OC under air

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
