    It's a great card but if I put any overclock on it then I get red flashing defects and games crash after a few minutes.

    that's weird, what's the out of the box boost?

    TBH all these 1080's seem to go around the 2000-2100Mhz either manually or factory clocked.

    2038mhz out of the box for me, around 2088 Stable.

    I'd say it's significantly more than twice as fast.

    How much are you overclocking it? Aftermarket Pascal cards with high factory overclocks are already close to their limits, unlike how it was with the Maxwell cards.

    Overclocking results in much smaller gains, unless you're rocking a F.E card with the standard base clock. The most important thing is to purchase a card that can MAINTAIN high clock speeds over time.

    For example, I just finished playing 2 hours of Doom at 2K maxed settings, and my GPU clock stayed above 2ghz the entire time, and with the fan speed on automatic at that.

    With that kind of performance, manual overclocking becomes totally unnecessary.

    I don't know how it is with 1080 ZOTAC AMP, but with my MSI 1070 there is definitely a lot of headroom for OC on memory. And the gains are pretty significant, so it's worth it.. Core is another story, +~100 is all I can get there.

    The memory overclocks really well but if I increase the core clock more than +50 in afterburner, games just crash within a minute or so.

    This is the settings I have at the moment and this runs fine in games:

    This is what they managed to get it to on the kitguru site:

    I have to say seeing it "live", the Gamerock looks A WHOLE LOT better than in the promotional pictures.

    And I do mean a lot! :thumbup:

    It's worse here, not only are there very few 1080s, but they cost between 850-1000+ euros...

    1070 is different though, there are several now and at more "decent" pricing. And frankly i'm surprised that it's not the other way around, the 1080 has a really bad price/performance ratio (imo), yet it sells like hot cakes. :3eyes:

    Any GTX 1080 Jetstream owners here? If so how's the cards?

    Also anyone got any info on the Jetstreams(Non Super)? Should I jump on it?

    Would appreciate any info/feedback guys. Thanks.

    Probably not, they aren't designed for that much stress

    But I'm barely 200 pounds! :D


    Yeah I gather as much. Since most gamerock owners look happy I should be too I guess.

    Thanks Geryboy. :thumbup:

    I tried to pre-order a regular ACX 3.0 version off scan when it first came out on the 27th of may, at first they removed the page saying that the card is EOL, but its coming on the 7th of june, waited till the 7th, they moved it again to 15th, waited till 15th, they started delaying my dispatch date every single friggin day for about a week, that pissed me off completely, so I cancelled it, ordered a Founders edition for a little bit extra, and water cooled the bugger :D

    Oh, it is just as bad here, believe me, since the UK voted to leave Europe the prices of GTX 1080 cards has shot up by around £30-£40 for the Founder's Edition cards and more for the non-reference cards. There are resellers on Amazon selling the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW card for between £823 and, wait for it, an unbelievable £1,571 (some retailer in Germany, I believe!!!). Even Amazon have it listed now at £670 which is why I kept my order rather than cancel it.
