You should have PhysX set to GPU.
I would go with EVGA SC + ACX 4995 version, it comes with the backplate which is nice.
I've been running mine an EVGA SuperNova 850G and I've had zero problems. Anandtech shows the full power consumption for the whole system at 386 with just a single 980ti. I can't imagine a second one getting anywhere close to filling up the remaining 450w of power.
How did you break the card?
I used a EK full-cover block on my 5870, my 580 was an EVGA with pre-mounted block, never had issues with my loops.
Didn't use water on graphic cards after that, since it's close to 200$ for a good full-cover block each time.
But I wanted a 980Ti none reference, we got to long of a waiting time for these though, so went reference with getting another cooler for it later in mind.
Ordered a ref EVGA 980Ti + ek waterblock
Where are you getting your EK block from?
Performance-PCs, only place i could find it in stock
I'll have to check them out. Will likely be ordering me one soon. Gotta justify it to the wife. LOL
just bought a EVGA GeForce GTX 980Ti Superclocked ACX 2.0+ (06G-P4-4993-KR) from Overclockers for £539 Hopefully it will be in stock for my week off next week.
Well ill get 500~ for the titan + block on ebay so im not losing too much out of pocket
I'm selling my i5/780 rig to a friend for $600 so not much out of pocket for me either.
Will be purchasing a G1 Gaming soon for 740€ approx, can't say I'm not excited.
I have a Corsair AX860 PSU and ran my OC'd SLI GTX580's and my i7 950 perfectly fine and those were some power hungry cards, along with a full water loop and fans to boot.
Awesome, so it looks like I'll be set with my RM850. That's an extra $300 that I don't have to spend. Lets me put more into fittings lol.
Thanks for the answers guys.
No problem. Oh how's the water loop coming along? Got any blocks for the 980TI yet?
Nope. Almost done planning everything out though. Only a couple things I'm undecided on.
Every time I think that I'm satisified with the layout I've chose, I come up with another idea. Now I'm looking at getting an EK res/D5 combo and mounting it near the PCI brackets.
Going to measure it up when I get home from work today.
If I can mount it there I'm pretty sure I'm set. Got everything else picked out and my bank account is just about ready to take a massive hit from all this equipment lol.
Was dissapointed when I saw the Fury X review. So I ordered an Inno3d iChill X4 Ultra. That thing looks BRUTAL. Any experience with these cards/ the brand?
I had some Inno3D cards before, haven't had any issues with them.
What clocks are you guys running? Currently my boost clock reaches 1450 with +280 offset on the core, might flash it soon though so I can up the power target and voltage.
MSI GTX 980Ti GAMING 6G Twin Frozr 5
It looks like I will be busy this weekend
That's the card I want. Keep us posted on your impressions.
