    If really you are not looking to run multiple GPU like SLI then I would go rather Raijintek Morpheus II and some good fans and still you will never have high temps

    In my case have run Raijintek Morpheus with EK Vardar F3 1850RPM, fans mostly run at 1000rpm and temps never went above 48°C, usually they been in 42°C as max during long periods of time in gaming or rendering, idlectemps has been in 18-24°C as max(lowest I've seen 12°C),with fans running at 400-450RPM temps has been in high 50's andvas above I have used Enzotech heatsinks on VRAM mostly

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    No problems per se but as I had to make cuts to it to make it fit with the cooler I didn't feel happy about it and just replaced it with heatsinks.

    Ofc removing the midplate means you need to use small screws and nuts (or cable ties) to fasten the backplate as the threaded holes for attaching the backplate are all on the midplate.

    In retrospect I should have ordered the Enzotech sinks straight away to avoid cutting the midplate so I could put the card back in to factory state.

    Just found this thread and was wondering if you could run Valley at the "Extreme HD" setting and post your results?

    Here is mine for comparison, 1471mhz, but it downclocked half-way to 1458Mhz. Ram 3610mhz bios OC @ 376.09
    [​IMG]

    This was max OC 1482, ram 3870mhz,
    [​IMG]


    From what I saw when I compared all tests, Valley really likes fast vram at 8xmsaa, from 3510 to 3870 ~4-5fps

    This is when I got the card boost 1342, vram 3510

    my modded bios oc 1418, 3610mhz

    You should have gotten a 1070 for 300 to 350 dollars ?

    I definitely wasn't able to find any 1070s for $350 or below when I bought this 980 Ti. Even now, the best price I see for a 1070 is $370 on Amazon with Prime shipping. If I found one for $300-350 I definitely would have grabbed it.

    For 1080p it's still excellent. 1440p still good. 4K is hit and miss. Mostly miss (unless you're OK with 30FPS.)

    980 Ti is still very good. Can max out all games @1080p for 60 fps (excluding ssaa/msaa) I have like ROTTR, DX:MD, The Division.

    Overclocked to 1.4 Ghz+ it beats a 1070 readily. Most cards can do 1.4 ghz without problems.
    Run mine oc'ed to 1.45 ghz with stock voltage.

    (It can manage up to 1545 mhz with increased voltage but I use that for benching only. Plus extended gaming sessions may crash with that clock so it's not 100 % stable but close.)

    I can confirm what RealNC and AsiJu have said. I am currently still playing games at 1080p and it has been butter smooth in Battlefield 1 and The Division at Ultra settings. Since you already have a GTX 980 Ti, I wouldn't bother upgrading right now unless you need to run 1440P with GSync & high refresh rates or 4K. You probably at least want to wait for the "GTX 1080 Ti" or whatever the Pascal equivalent will be called to be released. AMD's Vega GPUs are also on the way.

    Do you people use dsr? I got 27" lcd and most games look bad and like no antialiasing at all on 1080p.
    I'm using dst 1440p or 2160p for most of games

    I am still really enjoying my 980ti's they play all my games with all the eye candy. I have just upgraded to 43in 4K/2160p and I also purchased a HTC Vive for some VR fun and I have no problems gaming or using them with VR.

    I see no reason to upgrade yet or any time soon.

    I really like the 980ti's, but I think for 1440p it is beginning to get a bit long in the tooth for v. high details, I find the lack of SLI (or good SLI support) in pretty much every recent AAA title a killer, and the VRAM seems to be a real limiting factor on top of that.

    Gonna go single card next time unless SLI gets some more love, or DX12 becomes the norm. (ROTT DX12 SLI = <333)

    Yup same here, 27" monitor and 1440p or 1620p if games allow. Run Doom @1620p and DS 3 @ 1440p for example.

    Native is 1080p.

    Nice card you get there, just make sure you put an extra fan on the side of the gpu, where the blower is, the heatsink portion(VRM's), as this heatsink gets REAL hot under load.

    I have 1 140 fan on the side of my 2 980ti hybrids, and seems to do very nicely.

    This is what I would strongly recommend, boy do they run extremely hot, vrms.
