    HardOCP have done regression testing on drivers and found very little change over time.
    Why do you think it will be different now, and why so high as 15%?

    Hi Vlad

    I would probably go route of blower style GPU coolers if you are planning to run two of them

    What motherboard do you have and how many PCI_E slots you have on yours motherboard?

    Top GPU always will be running hotter than bottom one, if I was you I would keep GTX1060 as well with RTX 2080Ti , I would run 3*GPUs as you do use CUDA and you will gain a bit running 3*GPUs setup than 2 of GPUs

    Titan V I would probably choose rather than RTX 2080Ti but agree they're expensive and if its worth it hard to say

    Temperatures I would say you will be in 70-80's with bit of luck, which is not bad

    Have tried 4*air cooled GTX1080 FE and temperatures has been pretty much in 80's and noise has been unbearable

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    RTX 2080ti STRIX
    I got my Asus 2080ti STRIX today.

    After some problems installing the card (I've seen "fat" cards, but that long??? what the hell?) it runs like an absolute beast, it has destroyed everything I've thrown at it so much that I'm upping my refresh rate from 60 to 100 Hz for now, aiming to cap at that with Vsync unless the game goes well with gsync (IME sometimes they don't)

    Temps are low, noise is excellent, and I'm the guy who has been shopping for ultraquiet componentes for his last 6-7 PCs, this card might be the quietest one I've ever had.

    crap, the missus made a joke that I love the card (and my Acer X34 monitor) more than her.

    So overall, price is still stupid but I'm very happy with the card, I probably make the best decision for my specific situation.

    Hi Angelo

    Yours clocks are nice, as I said previously my GPU is proper dud, 2113MHz is max I think and 2235MHz its just not possible on my RTX, VRAM clocks +1100MHz is max I think which my GPU do

    Glad you are happy with Phanteks Glacier block, used them on few GTX1080Ti and loved them and as you are said, they are nicely built and would use them again there and will be using them on my brother loop or Heatkiller will see

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Is there a waterblock for the TITAN RTX yet? I just got one and it runs kinda warm.

    Also, the MSI RTX 2080Ti GAMING X TRIO is such a nice card. So quiet and it boosts up real fast. Stays cool too but its HUGE. I hope someone makes a waterblock for this card as well.

    Also thinking about picking up the Asus ROG Strix 2080Ti Overclocked version.

    Hi there

    I'm pretty sure RTX 2080Ti waterblock will fit Titan RTX as previous generations of Titan WB usually has been compatible with Ti

    Only Titan V using different waterblock and they're compatible only with V

    Regarding the MSI RTX 2080Ti Gaming X Trio waterblock I'm sure Bitspower, Bykski or Barrow makes one, EK will be making one and many makers will be making them like Phanteks, Watercool

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I use workstation motheboard from Asus Z10PE-D8WS.
    My plan is to use only one GPU. My actual GTX 1060 got 1280 CUDA cores and it is nothing compare to 2080ti (4300+ C.cores). I don't need more then one GPU. I use Houdini FX software for fluids simulations. Those algorithms still uses heavily CPU over GPU....but OpenCL can significantly increase some levels of my work.

    Thanks again for all the help guys!.

    In my country the dual fan Palit cards are 100-150$ cheaper than the MSI Trio. That's quite a lot of money and I really wonder how much the two coolers do on performance/acoustics.

    Probably worth to get that Trio after all for ultimate cooling performance.

    Hi Vlad

    I done one builds with Asus Z10PE-D8, in first instance we are used 6*1080Ti and in second we are used 4 of them, both of these builds has been used as render workstations and second one has been used too for CFD simulation etc

    If only one GPU then I would pick up any good aftermarket GPU with good cooler

    Why I do suggest running multiple GPUs is stacking CUDA cores, more CUDA cores faster render or simulation will be in yours case

    HoudiniFX I have used for while amd still use for volumetric effects etc

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    What do you guys think about OC versions? Like the Strix normal version vs the Strix OC version or the Gaming Trio version vs the Gaming X Trio version?
    These OC versions are OCd a little higher than their counter parts (for example Gaming Trio 1635MHz vs Gaming X Trio 1755MHz meaning a 120MHz increase) but does MSI or ASUS do this because the chips perform better? Or are they all pretty much the same anyway and it's just down to the silicone lottery which OCs higher or lower.

    I actually got the Asus strix advanced 2080ti, the OC version was not available.

    I can hit 2100mhz on the core just fine and temps are good too. Really could not care for the oc version now, but of course if its available for you - go for it.

    @Geryboy @TaskMaster
    Thanks for your advice. I've decided to go for an MSI 2080Ti Gaming Trio which is currently available from a very respectable retailer and has great RMA handling in case of Space Invaders :)

    I've always said in the past that the price for the 2080Ti is too high and it still is, but I really need the extra power given the games that are released in the near future. I've also sold my PS4 Pro since I don't have time for both that and the PC. I also don't think AMD will manage to release something good enough in the near future.

    Got my card but the seal was broken and it was obviously used :( Imagine my frustration.
    I'll give it back to the store tomorrow and have them order a new one from their main warehouse since there is a high chance there's something wrong with the card (wouldn't be sent back in the box in the first place right?).

    The store accepted my return without question and ordered a brand new card.
    The story continues...

    I picked up 2 x PNY Geforce RTX 2080 ti XLR8 Gaming OC cards in the beginning that died within 2 weeks. Tried out 2 x Inno3D Geforce RTX 2080 ti Gaming OC X3 cards which have performed great. Did some overclocking on the 2 x Inno3D cards, but never took the base clock up more than +44 Mhz and kept the VRAM at +40 Mhz and was well impressed with the results. I tried like hell to get 2 x MSI 2080Ti Gaming Trio OC's, but could never get any in stock in Germany. I now have 2 x MSI RTX 2080 ti Lightning Z's and WOW, +60 Mhz base clock & +1000 Mhz VRAM. These are truly unbelievable... Yes, all on air.

    Dual Lightning Z's, that's some serious stuff right there. I was thinking about that one too for a while but there is still a significant € difference at play plus the availability isn't the best.

    Yes, getting 2 was quite the challenge. But they do Rock!

    It finally arrived!

    Comparison with my old 1080Ti, what a beast!
    [​IMG]

    Ran out of sleeved cables but the RGB sure looks sweet!

    Only tried one benchmark so far and it's SotTR
    1080Ti (OC to 2000MHz/11074MHz)
    Min:67
    Max:123
    Avg:82

    2080Ti (stock ~1875MHz/14000MHz)
    Min:83
    Max:173
    Avg:121

    So I tried to do some OC which wasn't easy. The OC scanner added a curve but there was no OC when I ran a test.

    It seems that adding Voltage does nothing for stability. At +170 for example 3D Mark crashes regardless if I put +100% or leave it at +0%. To me it's more a matter of temperatures which in a way pains me a little that I didn't opt in for the Inno3D 2080Ti iChill (it was quite expensive though).

    The card is completely silent and the fans hardly spin. Out of the box the card boosts to arount 1825-1875 like Hilberts card. I seem to be able to add +150-160 which makes the card throttle down to ~2040 after a while with the fan set to Auto. If I ramp up my chassis fans and set the card fan to 50% it's audible but is a quite pleasant whoosh. This makes the OC clock more stable (~2050 or more).

    I'm a bit disappointed since it seems that Guru3D cards boost to 2100MHz on air, still the OC itself is good I believe.

    Edit : Ran a few more tests at stock. It's completely silent (except for some coil whine) and holds a temp of 70-71 (fans Auto) at 1875MHz. I'd say that's better than my old 1080Ti.

    Nice card. If you really want to take it for a spin, try out the new Metro Exodus if you like that sort of game. I just bought an EVGA 2080 TI FTW3. It's my first Nvidia card for quite some time and this game is simply superb with Ray Tracing turned on.
