    It's tempting, I think OCUK will have a dedicated number for me soon I've got in touch with that many times since I originally ordered my FTW last week lol

    Has your card arrived yet? It's coming today, right? Got everything crossed mine arrives on Friday!

    Has anyone had artifacts while OCing? I need to know before I send mine to RMA.

    How does overclocking with artifacts justify a RMA? :D

    The prices the GTX 1080 cards are selling for here in the UK due to low stock availability is ridiculous. I've seen some Founder's Edition cards list at £699 and higher! You'd have to be crazy to pay those kind of prices. Even the cards with third-party coolers are selling for MORE than the reference cards, which was the norm previously but with the additional £80 that NVIDIA added to the reference card, these should mostly be cheaper with higher end ones coming it at the same £619 price as the reference card.

    Mind you, I shouldn't complain as these prices are definitely helping me resist buying a GTX 1080 right now (assuming I could even find a non-Founder's Edition card that is actually in stock).

    Funny :D but what I mean is that normally if you OC, your driver crashes and that's it. If you OC your memory you get artifacts, that's the information I have. And not that you apply a little bit of OC and suddenly the card starts to artifact but wait...you can go even higher and the card is stable, but the artifacts are there.

    And if it is then it will be on a hell of a premium price, since afaik there are no other cards out there that do it. Maybe the MSI Lightning will too, but still, that will likely just be the maximum boost, and with 1070/1080 it's all about the average clock.

    I had a 780 Classified that produced artifacts with minor OC's that my second Classified handled w/o issue. Evga accepted the RMA w/o question and cross-shipped another card. It definitely depends on the situation ....

    It isn't, that's 'the target oc'

    I'll wait for a "normal" non founders edition, no rush... I'm good to go with my 980ti

    That just means your overclock is too high... that does NOT justify a RMA unless it artifacts at default clocks too.

    I'm just asking since I've never had artifacts on core OC before, only on memory. And my OC is not high, it's low. Just compare it to any other HW review or people in this thread.

    I'm planning on selling my 780GTX and moving onto my i7 glorious integrated graphics.

    I haven't quite made up my mind on AMD or NVidia this round, might hold out
    until mid July before making my choice.
