    You have been busy the last few weeks buying new gear !!

    I also 'upgraded' from a 980ti to a 1080 in the last week or so.
    With the recent price drop and a free copy of Ghost Recon Wildlands I couldn't resist.

    It's s nice fps boost in most games tbh, I was surprised how much.
    My 980ti was running at 1487mhz so was no slouch, (it was water cooled with a Corsair H75 and Kraken G10) and therefore cool (50-55'c under load).

    Went for an eVGA 1080 FTW Hybrid, it was on offer via eBuyer for £569.99 (think they messed up the price as it was cheaper than the bog standard Hybrid, is clocked higher and has the upgraded power delivery/components, they've now put the price up to £708 on it !!).
    Boosts to 2025 out of the box, I'm running it overclocked at ~2150 and 11000 on Ram... max temps under sustained load..... 40'c
    Beast.

    Free copy of GR Wildlands and I've got 80days left to step up to a 1080ti which I will do in a couple of months.

    But to be honest this card is so good, I may not even do the step up.

    Nice one! I might try to push mine to 2100 but honestly, even at 2000/1100 it's a dream at 1440p and the temps on this are so good, really happy.

    I got a game code too, Wildlands or For Honor, I'll go with For Honor most likely, but I see you have to redeem it via Geforce Experience, is there any other way?

    BTW, my debit card was a bit weird when I was buying this 1080. I was trying to purchase from OcUK, the payment wouldn't authorise. Tried from Scan, again, same thing. So I rang my bank and they said they temporarily disabled my account because there was suspicious transactions on it. It turns out the transaction they flagged up was my 2x Noctua fans from Amazon. So the bank re-enabled my account and I tried buying the card from Scan via paypal this time. Paypal timed out and Scan page said the payment didn't authorise.

    So I went on to OcUK and it went through... Only to discover later that I have another card coming from Scan too, apparently somehow that Paypal transaction went through. I contacted Scan this morning and said it was a mistake. They said no worries, they'll have the card back for full refund. Only, last night I received an email with the game code from Scan and later on from OcUK too.

    So I might have a code to give away, will have to check if the Scan one works, if so, I'll give the OcUK one away.

    Wow sounds like quite a lot of faffing around, but at least you got there in the end. Not surprised it didn't authorise you've been battering that debit card last few weeks!!

    Re redeeming the code(s) you do have to do it via GFE.
    It needs to be installed and you logged into your nVidia account. You then redeem your code and it asks you to sign in to your Ubisoft account and you pick your game. It's then available in uPlay.

    You can then uninstall GFE and all the crap like I did.

    As for your second code, well there are those nVidia keys on eBay, anyone with a 1070/1080/1080ti can redeem it so there is a market for them. You could sell it and make yourself £20 I guess !?!??!!

    But come on though youve gotta get Wildlands... it's fantastic.

    I may PM you at some point and see what games you've got as I'd love to see some game benchmarks clock for clock on the 1080's just to see what (if any) effect your 7700k has on FPS.

    I'm looking daily at 7700k's for a new build but I don't want to throw money away for not much gain.
    I've also found out I have something of a golden Haswell here,only taken me 3 years, it does 4.8ghz at less than 1.25v's and since I delided it the other week max temps at mid 60's

    Ok sure, I do have a lot of games tbh so feel free to pm me. I'll look into Wildlands, from what I've seen it looks a bit meh. But let me look into it :)

    Welcome to the club. My card runs at 2050/10800 out of the box. In intensive games, I see 56-58 degrees on the core. A couple months ago, I checked to see how far she can overclock. I ended up with freezing at 2163 on the core. I ended up with artifacts with 11,200 on the ram. Since the card runs at 2050/10800 out of the box, I just decided it was not even worth it.

    Nice one! No need to push the card further tbh, I would maybe put the vram to the nice round number of 11000 because I have an OCD but other than that, awesome.

    Are those temps with a custom fan curve? Or stock? What is the fan speed under load at those temps? I only run my fans at around 55% to achieve my temps (65C under load in intensive games).

    Today i´ve got the confirmation that the store where i bought a Gigabyte 1080 for 515€, and a Gskill memory kit, can´t satisfy my order and are going to give me back the money...:bang: I knew this deal was too good to be true...

    Now the cheapest 1080 that i can find is a MSI Armor for 550€...

    I use a custom curve. I see 56-58 in new titles with a custom resolution of 2880 x 1620P (3K) at about 50 percent fan speed. I ended up with a great card in terms of temperatures. You got a great card as well.

    Is that capped to 60fps or uncapped? Either way that's really good. Do you have TW3? It's the game that pushes my gpu temps hardest. Some games my 1080 doesn't even hit 50C lol. If you have TW3, could you test the game uncapped and report with temps? I'd appreciate that.

    Yes, capped at 60fps with vsync. I am really sensitive to screen tearing. I cant play without vsync on. I do not own TW3. In The Division, and other intensive games, I see 56-58.

    I see... I'll try The Division later to check how my card fares with 60fps cap. I'm thinking it'll drop below 60C because it's capable well over 80fps with most things maxed at 1440p so running 60fps should allow for lower temps. Will report back when I'm home from work, 15 hour day bois! I'll also test Twitcher 3 with 60fps cap.

    If you don't have hairworks maxed (but at medium) you will be able to ultra everything else no problem with a 1080 @1440p v-synced, if I can do it with a 1070 (well, granted, for me hairworks are on low and also the grass is not maxed iirc :p).

    So I just tried TW3 and The Division with a 60fps cap at 1440p, both maxed (HW on everthing with 2x HW AA) and in The Division all maxed, including the fancy Nvidia shadows and HBAO+ etc.

    In TW3 the card peaked at 51C, around 78% gpu load. Weirdly, in The Division, the gpu load stayed below 70% but it ran hotter, peaked at 55C for me.

    All in all just wow, superb results imo.

    Yeah, similar results in pretty much everything I play. I have to say this round goes to Palit. They simply have the best GTX 1080. Warranty sucks, but the card is fantastic.

    Been looking at this Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11GB Video Card on NewEgg but never had a Gigabyte card - any opinions?
