Let me correct what i said, typo.
Mine has the ACX 2.0 cooling I think its pretty good? Don't you rate it? I mean is there better after market stuff thast doesn't involve liquids?
eVGA Hybrid card owner here. I love this thing it's always around 40c - 46c on load.
The ACX 2.0 is pretty good for a single card setup, with multiple cards it might not cut it, didn't see any review upon it so just guessing since something simple as dual SLI can add significant heat to at least the top most card, remember that a lot 980Ti's will start to throttle beyond 80 something.
Yah will have to look into it... not sure what would fit my cards. Also would need to figure out where to fit radiators/fans.
after changing pt to 120,
Whats the custom test? just selecting the gpu tests?
yeah, just test1 and 2 @ 1080p
It looks like just the 2 gpu tests were selected.
Didnt rate mine at all. Thats why went Kraken G10 and Corsair H75 AIO on my ti in the end.
ACX 2.0...Noisey, high temps. Couldnt be doing with it. But then again I have a near slient case so that thing was way to loud for me when gaming.
When I had the 970 Msi 4G Gaming, i even swapped that cooler which is FAR superior to the ACX 2.0 for an Arctic Accelero Xtreme iv just for some near silent gaming.
However I sold that 970 with the Accelero Xtreme iv on it, orherwise would have put that on the 980ti aswell.
The only good thing about the ACX 2.0 cooler is the midplate that cools the VRMs and RAM
test your powerlimit in Skydiver or 3dmark 2011 or 3dmark Vantage or 3dmark06 ps3.0 tests, firestrike is nothing
What difference would it have, you mean it'll exceed the 120 or what?
Aren't those ancient benchmarks free now?
Don't really care about those anyway, only firestrike is relevant now..
Haven't read everything but you flashed your vBIOS with a custom one?
Not really, some games use a lot more then firestrike, just saying, I would never optimized my powerlimit around one benchmark.
Besides Skydiver is part of new 3dmark - run whole suite by Skydiver.
I don't find those old benches relevant anymore imo barely run 3dmark 11 nowadays.
Did I ask you if you still run 3dmark2011?
The point is they use higher powerlimit and that is the real scenario what a certain gpu OC outputs by max TDP, firestrike doesn't even go that far @ UHD mode.
I don't think most people care about those benchmarks any more, you can count me in that crowd. If you find them relevant for your self that's fine.
I don't really need any special "optimzation" anyway, we're talking about a 10% pt limit increase here, that's nothing, and enough for us 980 ti users, enables the card to not throttle that much anymore.
I'm fine with that.
I just gave my card a 10% pt limit increase, works much better now, stays at max boost more. In the 1470-1480MHz range.
