    Asus 1080ti Reference
    Hey guys, just got my 1080ti (asus reference) since yesterday. Great performance, but I got my first tdr in Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Game ran smooth as butter in 4k, and suddenly BAM crash to desktop, TDR.

    I know this is a driver problem, and since 378.78 is the first driver that supports the 1080ti I wondered how long it will take them to fix problems like this.

    Gotten tdr's with 980ti as well in the beginning until the driver matured, then everything was running rock solid.

    Any other owners that gotten a tdr yet ?

    Ow btw, I made a custom fan profile with slightly higher fan speed and the card stays at roughly 76-77 ° at 57 % fan speed. There is quite a lot of noise difference from 50 % to 60 % :p

    GTX 1080 Ti OC
    Got my 1080 ti for a week, upgrade from R9 290.

    4K 60FPS in most of the game. However, really cannot bear the noise from the stock fan.

    OC to 2G+ core, and mem 6000MHZ, custom fan curve by afterburner.

    Need 60% of fan to keep core lower than 75 degree. But at this point, the fan really sounds like a jet fighter.

    Order a EK titan x water cooling block....must replace the stock fan.

    The step up program is not valid for the same model . I had a 1080 EVGA founder's edition and was told 3 times by Customer service once FTW model was available I could step up.

    FTW 1080 was available and I was told the step problem is only for low-end models only.
    So here is how the step programs works.
    So if you just purchased any 1080 model within 90 days you could step up to 1080 ti founder's edition.

    I will never purchase another EVGA product after this.

    Why would a customer service rep tell you something that EVGA has never done as a regular step up? The models and the program is clearly spelled out.

    http://www.evga.com/support/stepup/
    That you would not use EVGA because of an optional program that benefits you that nobody else has is strange. Never mind they have the best warranty and service.

    @HeavyHemi
    I was told 3 times when I called I could step up to a better model of same card and the phone conversable was taped and verify by the Supervisor.

    So again I will never purchase EVGA again.

    I have actually used the Step Up program. Back in April, before the 1080 release, I upgraded to an EVGA 980 TI FTW. When the 1080's were released, initially, there was a step up to the 1080 SC for a very short time and then the 1080 ACX 3.0 reference Gaming. After one day, the SC disappeared and the step up options became the founders edition, the EVGA blower style and the Reference ACX 3.0. Under normal circumstances, the reference designs are the ones that are part of step up program. I did see about a 25% increase from the 980 TI FTW to the 1080 ACX 3.0. The idea is that they get you into the new generation card with the increases in performance that come with them. There is no SC for SC or FTW for FTW in all the years that I have been buying EVGA. The step up program is a win / win. They use the old cards that are stepped up for RMA replacements and B stock...and you get the new generation. A step up from a 1080 FTW to the reference 1080 TI or Founders is going to net you about a 22% performance increase. I am in the queue for the Founders, however I would much prefer the ICX version of reference should it become available.

    I understood it to be that you could step up from the 1080 Ti FE to the next better model, ie the 1080 ACX most likely.... not to the top of the line FTW model.

    You are limited to ONE stepup. You cannot step up, and step up again. If you have the ACX or ICX version of any 1080, you can step up to the TI Founders, right now. Perhaps in a few weeks, EVGA will release a reference ICX cooled version of the TI. They have to release their AIB cards to find out.

    Correct, it's one step up only. I have the EVGA founders edition and might consider stepping up to the next in line AIB model once they are out. It really depends on how much more the price is. The performance is excellent @ 4K even at stock, so I really don't think I "need" a AIB version unless I OC it.

    The only reason I am even contemplating waiting for the ICX version is that I did the ACX to ICX upgrade...and frankly, my 1080 SC2 never exceeds 53C no matter how I overclock it or how hot it gets in Texas...and right now...mid 80's. My original SC would hit 63C. Even that one was cool. I have good airflow in my system, so the FE TI might do the trick...I just want to keep the card under
    80C...what temps do you get?

    Mid 70's around 55% fan speed running Doom uncapped. If I cap to 60FPS at 4K, temps and fan speed are a bit lower.

    I just ran the Hitman Absolution benchmark:

    1080p it only hits 56C on stock fan profile.
    4K it hits 76C on stock fan profile.

    It has reach 84C a couple of times after gaming (ESO) at 4K for an hour or two. When it hits 84C the fans ramp up noticeably and it pushes the temps back into the 70s for quite awhile.... It boosts to ~1890-1900 at stock.

    I just set the fan to a fixed 40% and ran the same benchmark again at 4K. It only hit 67C this time and is completely inaudible at that fan speed.

    so I guess the best thing for me to do is call EVGA to find out for sure if I can get a better custom heatsink model next week.
