    Hi there

    If you don't have water loop,then EVGA Hybrid will be probably easiest way how to cool GPU,but not sure if you can use that on yours SC,as these kits are usually for stock GPU with stock cooler or Founders editions

    EK do have that,but you will need extra EK Predator 280 or 360 with QDC and then you will need to get EK water block,something like this

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/ek-w...qdc-graphics-card-block-bundle-bu-007-ek.html

    Not sure where are you located and this depends on prices etc

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    That EVGA Hybrid is only 107 on amazon and it definitely fits the 1080 SC. I will regret it if it dies within 6 months like yours did but it seems to get good reviews and it is way cheaper. As my first step into the world of watercooling, I think it is a good option.

    Hi there

    Yes agree price for EVGA Hybrid is good and above mentioned EK Predator plus block can run to hundreds £££ and if its worth,depends because you will have "water" cooled CPU

    Just register EVGA Hybrid over on EVGA website and you should be fine,I think warranty over here in UK is 1 year for them,but I would check this

    If you will regret it,hard to say... Few people have same issues,but I know several people who run them without the issues,I've had just bad luck

    My recommendation get better fan there,I've used EK Vardar F3 1850RPM and if you want quieter fan then have look on Noiseblocker something like this

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/noiseblocker-blacksilent-fan-xlp-fan-120mm-pwm-2000rpm-fg-023-nb.html

    or this

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/noiseblocker-nb-eloop-fan-b12-ps-120mm-pwm-1500rpm-fg-056-nb.html

    Stock or supplied EVGA fan is way too loud for my liking there

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    No worries, installing the EVGA Hybrid kit is very easy, just I would recommend get good tools as some EVGA and Nvidia screws are just pain in arse to remove

    Have installed few kits and only on two cards have issuecto remove screws and this has been on my Titan X

    Second option is put NZXT Kraken G10 and use Corsair Hydro or NZXT Kraken AIO/CLC which can be expensive and you will need to use some sort of VRM cooling

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I should probably pick up a good tool set for PC. Any recommendations?

    Hi there

    There are few kits which are pretty good,you will need PH1 and PH000 and hex which I right now don't remember 4mm and 1.5mm Hex bit I think they're using or they're used

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    Got a GTX 1080 yesterday!!!!!! its an Nvidia Reference Founders edition (after owning several different GFX cards with 3rd party coolers, i can safely say, i am starting to like the Reference (Nvidia stock) GFX card coolers...

    Dont get me wrong, i absolutely LOVE the STRIX lineup (by far my fav of the 3rd party cards and product line.) but even the STRIX cards suffered Incredible sagging over a month of use....


    anywho, any good games (that came out in 2017) i should pick up to play on my new setup?

    ASUS ROG G20CB-B21 (came with a Weird Unmarked and extremely cheapish GTX 1070)
    Core i7 6700
    Nvidia Reference FE GTX 1080 (i had to get one lol)
    16GB RAM
    27in 4ms Curved Samsung (C27F591FD) Display (turns out its a freesync monitor... DOH!- wasnt marked as such on the box\wasnt even looking for a monitor with Freesync or G-sync)
    Logitech G910 Keyboard + Logitech G602 mouse

    For those of you with EVGA 1080s, have you been happy with them so far from a performance / noise perspective?

    My current card (780) is dying so need to get a replacement - I was looking at either the SC GAMING or the FTW GAMING models

    Very happy. I've had 5 different EVGA cards. 3 SCs when they first released, and now the 2 x FTWs. They all overclocked pretty decent. The SCs hit the power limit pretty easy, though. Thus my move to the FTW, with the increased power limit.

    Well, we knew it was coming. 1080 is old tech now. But my question is how many of your are happy with your 1080 rigs.

    For me it was a no-brainer - going from 2 x 7970 xfire to 2 x asus strix 1080's.

    I couldn't wait for another year to pass before I could play 4K.

    I see next big jump is when 8K monitors become mainstream and there are cards that can run that resolution.

    That will be my next upgrade - until then, 1080's are doing just fine! No need to go to 1080Ti

    I would love to get a 1080ti for 2160p 60fps gaming but it's a little more than I want to pay for a gpu and I already just got a 1070 not even a year ago. The good news is the next generation of cards looks promising for 2160p. I'm guessing based on the past, the gtx 2070(or whatever the 1070 of next gen is called) will either match or slightly beat the 1080ti at a much better price.

    I have found a good compromise on my GTX 1080 with my Sony 4K TV. On old games, 4K at max settings is fine. On new games, I run a custom resolution of 2880 x 1620P (3K), and I run max settings no problem. Anyone trying to run new games on a 4K panel should give this a try. It is a great compromise.

    Even titan xp can't play all games @4k how will a 1080ti xD, well unless you tone it down a lot, i rather play 2880x1620p then with much higher eye fidelity and faster fps.

    You do realize the 1080ti outperforms the titan right?

    By about 5% so again, it won't make a difference.

    4K 60 fps gaming is still not entirely possible, especially with new games. Volta Ti will probably easily do this.

    Thing is (and always has been) that by that time new more demanding games are likely to pop up too, so the circle will go on. But still, there are some people who prefer to drop some settings here and there to cope with this. I myself couldn't, hence why I'm still on 1440p, ultra 4xmsaa ftw. :nerd:

    Consoles are moving to support 4K as native and the hardware there isn't going to catch up to PC. So PC will easily do 4K games next generation.

    I also disagree about the 1080Ti and 4K support. Yes, obviously their are some newer games that you can't max out entirely at 4K and hit 60fps.. but most games have a few "visually minor" settings that can be disabled to hit 4K@60.

    Then you have the entire swath of older titles that are easily driven at 4K.

    I play tons of stuff on my 4K TV with my 1080 - the Ti will be more than capable and I actually intend on buying one + the 4K 144Hz HDR monitor when it comes out.

    Hi guys!

    So i was shopping for a new gpu and i was looking at a 1070 when suddenly i saw a Gigabyte 1080 Windforce OC for 515€! Normally i wouldn´t spend so much money at a gpu but when i saw a 1080 at the prices of the 1070 i couldn´t resist and ordered one! Not to mention i´m thinking about buying a 4K screen so i need all the firepower.

    My question now is, did i made a good buy with this model??? I´ve been looking for reviews of this card but i can´t find a single one... I hope i didn´t bought the card this "cheap" because it´s crap...

    Thanks!

    I would not recommand buying a 4k screen for a GTX1080, it just dont have enough gfxpower for it imo, 1440p would be perfect.
    BTW, nice deal on the GTX1080!
