    Got a couple of questions.

    1. Could anybody tell me if this Firestrike score looks correct? Card was around 2050 on the core +- 10, and 5500 memory. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9096862

    2. For some reason, my card doesn't downclock in idle. It stays at 1607mhz. Anybody know what's up? Driver bug?

    1. It's the score one should expected with your system. Great score.

    2. Sure? Have you checked form diferent sources? i.e. MSI Afterburner, GPU-Z. Anyway, download and run GPUShark in the link below. In the detailed view it will show you active 3D applications. Perhaps there's one preventing your GPU to downthrottle.

    I was totally wrong. Opened case and i can confirm with 100% confidence it's the PSU where the coil whine comes from. It didn't happen with my previous Gigabyte GTX680 wich draws aproximatelly the same power as MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X.

    Before running to buy a new one, i want to try to fix it. I have lot's of devices in my PC, i.e. 3xSSD and 3xHDD. I also have the CPU overclocked.
    But high power consumption shouldn't be a problem for my Corsair HX750 (it has now 6 years but it's still a little gem). Look it's efficency and the real max. power it can really supply: 913W with 83,1% efficency

    I will plug only the minimum components to minimize power drawn and see what happens. By the way, i would appreciate if MSI GTX 1080 users could tell wich PSU they have and confirmation it doen't whine paired with this card, even at high FPS and GPU OC.

    Regards.

    1. Cheers for the confirmation. I've seen people talking about 25k graphics scores and just wanted to make sure.

    2. I've only checked in MSI AB, but I'll try some other apps and GPU sark, too. It's worth noting that sometimes after a reboot, the issue is no longer present, but as soon as I enter 3D, the card only downclocks to stock 1607MHZ, rather than dropping all the way to idle clocks. I haven't been able to find a direct, repeatable cause, as sometimes off a fresh reboot, it stays at that clock, to.

    GPU shark looks useful. Hopefully it's not Origin or something causing my card to boost to (non-boost) 3d clocks.

    I don't have an MSI card (Inno3d Twinx) but I use a Corsair Rm750x and I get no coil whine at high FPS (300 or so), or GPU OC (mine's not super high, but 2050/5500).

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I will monitor nowinstock, and I also put in for product notification at B&H Photo, so let's hope theirs actually works unlike Newegg's.

    As for NCIX, they are charging a large premium for U.S buyers so they aren't an option.

    Well I bit the bullet and bought a Strix 1080, comes on Wednesday. Before my 980 I had a 690, performance between the two was relatively unchanged in games with decent SLI scaling. So it's going to feel good to finally make a leap.

    My 980 was watercooled but I think I'm going to forego watercooling for this one. Might end up selling it when the Ti/Vega drops then WCing that.

    Honestly it seems strange but one of the biggest reasons I want the 1080 is for 4K Netflix support. I hope Netflix pushes that update soon if they haven't already.

    I'm thinking of getting one of these bad boys. Would you guys recommend it?
    Anything i should be aware of? Any advice on which model. Looking at the STRIX.

    Well... I dunno there it was and I just bought it lol but stock is veeeeery scarce here in the UK so you just have to keep checking various shops or pre order... if you're prepared to commit.

    Ran 3dmark11, CPU at 4.4Ghz.

    Score: 22979
    Graphics Score: 32831

    All in all seems to be running really nice, quiet, and cool.

    Unless you have some spare cash or really want a new toy it's defo not worth moving from a quality 980Ti but then I NEW that previously, I went in with my eyes wide open, so I'm really enjoying this card so far, even a few pleasant surprises.

    I just find my self periodically(once or twice weekly) checking for a GTX 1080.

    Must not get one. But if I find one for a good price I don't think I will resist.

    This comment is mostly for my self so I can get it out of my system.

    Must wait for bigger Pascal.

    Will be curious about your experience with it, getting rid of SLI and all :)
    Still not sure if I should get rid of mine and grab a 1080, or wait for a TI, or even wait longer for Volta or Vega...

    You can always wait for a bigger Pascal while rocking a 1080. :giggle2:

    That's what I'm doing. I doubt the 1080 prices are going to shift much, especially if the August Titan P frametime is true. I'll just sell my 1080 and get a Ti when it comes out.

    Someone better put out a 144hz 4K by then too, with HDR.

    Me too, but I would settle for a monitor with a proper 1440p 144Hz IPS g-sync panel as well... can't believe I'm still on my U2711. :p

    Prices won't shift much until AMD puts out a direct competitor to 1070/1080, but we will lose a bit from the premium we paid for having the cards bought so early, with **** availability and all.
