    I've been so busy with work and then going straight to testing this card, that thought hadn't even crossed my mind. I'll look into it but I have to be able to use my computer for work every day and I'm not going to have a backup GPU soon. Never tried my onboard Intel GPU but maybe that would work. Also, reading through some posts on the EVGA forums it looks like they recently changed warranty/RMA stuff so I would somehow need to get an invoice for the cash I gave my friend so that EVGA believes I bought and now own the card. Maybe @HeavyHemi could clear that up since I saw a good bit of them over there.

    I mean, technically, it could be any of those things. I don't think it is Windows since this 1803 install is pretty recent and my previous GPU worked just fine. Possibly drivers, I've only tried the most recent 2 and had the same outcome. Also MSIAB/RTSS is a fresh install as of yesterday and power monitoring is off. It isn't that the card *can't* clock past 1860MHz, it just isn't stable when stock settings boost it up around 1950MHz. If anybody wants to compare with my current stable settings (-50 core, +300 mem) I'm getting 3837 points in Heaven with max settings and 8xAA @ 1080p.

    Speaking of EVGA 1080ti, I had one (the 12Ghz vram clock edition) for a week. Was never impressed by the card, noisy, heavy, not impressive temp, mediocre evga percision software (and the only solution to control fan and voltage), and mediocre out the box clocks compared to compition(barely boosts to 1911 under load, and dips to 1898 in intensive scenes). I returned it (too much for a $849 card)

    Hi. Wrong thread. Unless you have a customized laptop model with 1080-Ti inside. Your gpu is just a 1080. :)

    I returned a card that would lock up / reset the driver with its highest OC profile loaded (manufacturers profiles).
    That’s what it’s supposed to be able to, so if it can’t do that anymore, back to the dealer I say!
    That’s my main reason to shop hardware like this at a reputable dealer (or Amazon) so that I can exchange it without hassle.

    My first card booted to roughly 2050 out of the box, but I wasn’t able to overclock the core at all, neither was I able to lower the voltage.
    My second card now boots a little lower at default, but it’ll boost and run perfectly fine at 1950-1980 with 0.95V, which lowers power consumption quite a bit (I think 80W roughly with Witcher 3).

    OC profiles from additional software are not guaranteed to work ever, the only thing you are guaranteed is stable out of the box.

    I bought an Aorus 1080Ti Extreme Edition and I received my replacement from the dealer, so I don’t mind *why* they did it.
    It’s not so much an additional software, as it’s needed to control the LEDs.

    i want to put a second one, but i'm just current looking for cheap ones, my options are the zotac amp and msi gaming x, the zotac amp looks big but apparently have better cooling and the gamin X looks really cool, which of them would you choose.

    MSI is a top notch 1080ti. I would easily recoomend it over Zotac.

    The last one, huh? That must mean the 1100 series is right around the corner!

    Would be really appreciated if your share your cpu info, far cry 5 before and after sli, BF1 and GTA 5. I hope you game on 1440p 144hz.

    I don't really get this voltaje, overclock stuff, for example i want mine to go 2070mhz with 1050mv since i found that voltaje is the perfect one for my card, but when i go to that core clock or higher my voltajes inmeadiatelly start to drop to 1043mv and below but if i up my voltaje control even just by one digit then the voltaje starst upping from 1062mv and above

    If it runs at the advertised clock speeds, it's working as intended and not defective. You guys are playing the silicone lottery where sometimes you win, and sometimes you don't. It's like when you lose your shirt gambling in Vegas. Suck it up, don't complain on the drive home, and don't expect anyone else to pay for your bad luck. That means don't file bogus RMA's because it always costs everyone else in the long run.

    I agree with your sentiment, and the GPU does in fact run at 1569MHz base and 1683MHz boost, but it *isn't* actually stable after being installed. I can only get it stable (in 3 computers at this point) by downclocking from -26MHz to -50MHz, otherwise the vast majority of games I try to play will CTD or freeze. I'm not going to RMA this card since I'm going to sell it once 3rd party 11 series cards are out, so it isn't worth my computer downtime to gain ~50MHz.

    These cards dont run at advertised clocks, they boost higher.
    With the card at default settings it is unstable at boost clocks.
    Its not our lack of understanding thats at issue.

    In general, I do not. In fact, I didn't want to. I'm just not willing to pay crypto/memory hiked prices for new cards. After testing and clocking the core down a bit it is fine for me until the next cards come out, and I'm enjoying gaming while not worrying about stability anymore.
    With the introduction of Boost 3.0, or any boost really, it has become harder and harder to determine what "stock" clocks are anymore. Especially with EVGA and how they seem to make their own BIOS's compared to other brands. Again, I'm over the whole thing and just enjoying gaming at stable clocks.

    I was finally able to find my dream 1080 Ti for a decent price. (Better then most offers anyway.)
    The Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti 11GB (Someone tell me if its really 11GB of vram? i thought they are 8GB only.)
