    on a z170 board with an i7 6700k am i good as in terms of pci lanes with a wirless card in a x1 slot a 1080 in the x16 slot and a asus essence stx in a x16 slot but really a x1 if i also add a 960 evo nvme?

    The ASUS TUF S has 3x PCIe x1 slots and 3x PCIe x16 slots(PCIEX16_1/2/3, PCIEX1_1/2/3).

    TyrantofJustice since you have the Essence STX in the second pcie(PCIEX16_2) can you check if the gpu is running @X16 or X8 when under load?

    well i am not sure how to check but GPU-Z shows it at 16x pcie 3.0 even in there stress test option under that tab if thats what you are asking me?

    So when running the GPU-Z stress test it says "PCI-E 3.0 x16 @ x16 3.0" or "PCI-E 3.0 x16 @ x8 3.0" ?

    Just curious. Because I would assume running a second pcie device in the second pcie x16 slot would drop the gpu from x16 down to x8.

    If not, all is good then!

    Should one consider replacing the original thermal paste on the MSI Gaming X gtx 1080 ?

    I have Gelid Extreme at home.

    I wouldn't. I mean the difference would be negligible at best and don't you lose warranty if you do so? Unless of course you mean to put it under water or a different cooler, then you'll have to do it anyway.

    Oki thank you already. As i'm not planning anything extraordinary on this card i'll leave it as is.

    Yes.

    I've never seen a good application from the factory, always way too much and usually dried out.

    Today i saw a 0C3D review of this card and it was odd but one of the GPU's VRM and one of the GMemory weren't covered by a thermal pad...
    I am going to check this anyway and as TinyTomLogan said it himself there was way too much of it all over the ship.

    OC3D's review on this MSI Gaming X gtx1080: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aT2lJX_EFY

    You confirming this and that's case closed. ill do it no matter the warranty

    Thx Agent-A01 and Solfaur

    If those specs are true (and I have a feeling that they are), then the 1080Ti will be nothing like the 980Ti was vs old Titan X. They simply stripped it down too much, except price, I bet they will even bump that.

    I was initially bought this 1070 back in June as a placeholder for the 1080Ti, but if the 1080Ti will be like in those rumors then meh, I'll probably skip it.

    Ah I though I posted in 1080TI thread :D

    True, well it "can't" be faster then TitanXP, but also it can't be slower then max OC'ed 1080GTX.


    If you compare those specs with TitanXP, then its not so crippled by tflops, it has higher gpu frequency, also higher Gpixel because of it - both 96ROP.

    well I looked at the specs and dont seem to understand why they slowed the memory 2ghz. I think they can do better there, considering 1080 1070 and Titan have an effective 10000mhz gdrr5 memory.

    Its normal GDDR5 not X with apparently 12GB ram, current maxwell did 7GHz 336GB/s, now its 8GHz like e.g. GTX1070.

    But why? The higher end 1080 and Titan go balls out with the better memory. Do you really think those specs listed would literally be the choice of RAM? Why do they Gimp there?! I dont like that.

    Finally got a Gtx 1080 after years with Radeon. Watch Dogs 2 made me do it so I could run it faster on higher settings. And apparently my i7 3820 won't be a bottleneck to any bothersome degree, but maybe not everyone will agree with that.

    My 2600k doesn't bottleneck a 1080.. You're fine.. Bottleneck is one of the most overused, and most misunderstood terms in computer history.. Especially when it comes to CPU/GPU pairings. People just throw it around to throw it around without even understanding what it even means. It's a buzzword. Truth is CPU technology really hasn't moved much in 5-6 years. They're more efficient, and the architecture streamlined but in RAW horsepower.. Negligible.. Especially with an overclock. Especially with modern CPUs which are becoming less and less and less overclock friendly because they're pushing the limits of clockspeeds that 5 year old CPUs could easily reach with an overclock.

    Push further
    FSU 6k+
    TS 8.5k+
    FSX 12k+

    Are doable in 2150/11k+ ranges.
    Edit: Speaking for GPU scores of course.
