    Waiting on the Classified has turned me to the drink.

    I have seem some dodgy looking bios's out there, but I didn't think the Strix OC had overrided the 1.09V limit in their vBios. Any owners out there can confirm this? Cannot find much anywhere about this, just that the Strix OC's were scaled back due to a large number of RMAs from the early batches. I assume it was the cooler limiting the ability to maintain the factory overclock rather than anything to do with the power limit.

    I did have the same opinion as you, I had thought that it would likely be the classified that would solve that issue. In the end I went for the FE just because I could have it straight away. We might get something that overcomes the power issues later, then having an extra power connector and more power phases might give a bit more performance - but by that time we might have a Ti version anyway, running HBM2 memory.

    Damn was hoping for some news today especially after Ben said that some 1080 Sc's would be arriving here on Friday. Like many others I am now restless due to the wait.

    These look like the lowest priced items in stock that would work:

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/inno...-graphics-card-n1080-1sdn-p6dn-gx-063-in.html

    The FE cards are £20 more than that. You would need to double check compatibility with your block, but I'm fairly sure it uses the reference board (as varified by EK)

    It wasn't even planned like he said it was, no shipping nothing, a pure blag if I seen one.

    I probably should have posted in the 1070 thread, I realised my mistake after posting so I edited in the (1070s) at end.

    Yeah micron make the 1080 memory.

    So far on 1070s its only been samsung but now micron started appearing on 1070s. Sorry for the confusion.

    You and me both!

    I decided to look at it from the perspective of - at the 60+ days since paying and waiting, it now draws the potential for a Ti closer and to be in step up range !

    Knowing I'm 9th in the queue has been haunting me too xD

    Seeing pictures of them on Reddit in the states on retail store floors frustrated me even more >.<

    Finally had enough of this debacle.
    Cancelled my order and bought a Zotac GTX 1080 Founders Edition from another etailer through Flubit for £577.50 and it arrives on Monday.
    Its a bit more than I wanted to pay, but it feels worth it to put this sorry episode behind me.
    Good luck to everyone else still stuck in Overclockers version of Groundhog Day.

    One of the reasons i picked this card was the 10400 memory so if it isn't up to that then it's not the product i ordered
