    I'm using the 368.69 WHQL drivers, temps don't go above 50ºC

    Same card on the review with a much better CPU: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_1080_sea_hawk_x_review,29.html

    19996 Total

    My OC isn't that big, i'm using the MSI Gaming App OC mode.

    Your graphic score seems about right, but i am surprised that you cannot get your chip higher than 4.2GHz.

    And forget about the physics score. I only get around 8500 with my cpu at 4.6GHz because.... well i5. lol

    Yeah, mentioned in my edit in my last post, it's the fact you've got an i5

    Play some actual games to check your performance, sythentic benches aren't going to do you many favours unless you can find someone with an i5 to compare to

    How is stock looking for the GTX 1080's?

    I saw a gigabyte model on Newegg, but it seemed to be a stock board. It was 8+2 phases and 1 8-pin connector.


    Any idea what some of the best models are? I've heard good things about the Zotac model. I've been eyeing the STRIX since I currently have a STRIX 970 my brother will be getting. DHT is pretty amazing.


    I'm looking for more phases and more power connectors because I will be modding the card at the BIOS level to raise the TDP limit and setup custom fan curves without using software.

    EL1TE, checked your score and you're 100% CPU bound. Hilbert used an extreme processor for its benchmark which gave a huge boost to 'Physic' and 'combined' scores.
    BUT if you check the graphic score you're actually higher, Hilbert scored 21900 and you're at 22k+.

    [​IMG]
    3dmark is a Benchmark not a video game. The overall score doesn't translate literally in video games, most-of which are not really CPU-bound nowadays.

    With 22K+ in Graphic score you'll perform slighlty better than someone with 21K in video games with low/mid cpu usage.



    TL DR: your score is good. Yet, try to overclock your CPU, this is your limit right now. You'll only see difference with 19K hilbert score in High CPU usage applications (and most game don't take that much).

    btw, i had a i5-4670K before, and those babies can reach solid 4.5Ghz. You should focus on this if you wanna improve your gaming experience.

    Thanks i get it now, i just bought 3DMark on the Steam sale and run it for the first time, no idea how it worked at all, guess i should have looked t graphics score, and it's only higher because it's in OC mode lol.

    As for the CPU i can't really get it higher, i've tried 4.4 and 4.6 with different voltages and they all crash, 4.6 worked on stress test for 40m straight but then crashed.

    With 4.2 i don't need to touch the VCore and it's completely stable, do you remember how much VCore you used for 4.5?

    Not to forget i probably have a bad chip.

    Disable any economy feature if there is (speedstep etc..). Then put 1.22V Vcore and set your ratio in Fixed mode, and work your way up playing with ratio and finalizing with BCLK if needed (i'll stay between 99.0 and 101.0 ideally).

    Pretty sure any ship can reach 4.4 at least.


    A fast test to check if your ship is in the upper 50percentile quality ship is to set vcore to 1.20, ratio fixed at 46. If you can start your computer, or even just pass the BIOS/UEFI, you've a top 50% ship.

    Getting a Palit Jetstream 1080 soon. Does any one know if the NZXT krakenG10 cooling system will work on it? Will it void the wartranty if I remove the factory cooler?

    Not sure bout voiding warranty but the Kraken G10 will work.Plan to do the same to my Zotac 1070 FE once I receive it.

    A nice card so far:
    gpu-z sensor log:
    2016-07-12 15:35:47 , 2100.5 , 1395.0 , 43.0 , 27 , 0 , 3641 , 55 , 17 , 0 , 1 , 95.4 , 0 , 1.0930 ,

    The curve overclocking thing isn't that easy though :p

    I hit a wall on the top card with 2100...The other one can do about 2150...When SLI is enabled 2100 is the max sustained boost of both...:D

    Here trying to find the best OC with my new Zotac GTX 1080 AMP Extreme:

    [​IMG]

    Starts at 2126 but soon falls to 2114 and stays there. Maybe I need to push a little more and then find best VRAM OC.
    I'm also getting good temps, but it is winter here and ambient room was only 16ºC.

    Which is the best software to search for artifacts?
