    Exactly what I'm thinking, Seems a bit underhanded considering they are identical cards. Ah well no real harm done when you can overclock manually so easily these days.

    I noticed similar on my non-OC but have had no issues getting to around 2000 on the core with a +100 offset.

    What have you managed on the memory?

    I've set my core to 152 which gets me 2012 (sits at 2000 avg) and I'd have to double check when I get home but I think my mem is +200 (crashes around 300, 350 iirc)

    Kinda weird the way the core jumps up when overclocking, if I set my core to +151 it goes down to 1987 +152 it sits at 2000 and I have to go +160+ before it moves again from 2000.

    It wont move in intervals of 1 mhz I guess (Though I remember overclocking my 780 and it did)

    Sounds exactly like mine. As though there is something else limiting the boost other than thermals or power. I have not messed with voltage yet mind.

    Still ~2000 on a Ti is good stuff particularly in near silence. I am really pleased with mine :)

    How hot does your backplate get? Mine is too hot to touch. Was thinking about trying to increase airflow over it but GPU temps are excellent so not sure it's an issue - gamers nexus say VRMs are good to 125c !

    They move in intervals of 13 mhz.:)

    Kaap is the toasty backplate an issue? On a strix?

    I don't have a Strix 1080 Ti but backplates can get very hot even on watercooled cards.

    One of the functions of a good backplate is to draw heat off the card.

    Cheers :)

    Amazingly good at load but I noticed the sun directly on my case earlier and the card was idling at 55c - just the point at which the fans come on. So they spent the day cycling on and off even though all I've done is played with memtest heh.

    Getting toasty, 77C today in a 29C room.

    With regards to others and the Strix can't say the OC model is any better as I briefly had an OC model but it would only do 1936-1950 with a maximum +60 OC.

    I guess it's more of a bit of free cash for Asus and let the cards boost 3.0 go higher on the OC model.

    Card itself did look lovely though especially the backplate. It was hard to send back but still do prefer my zotac in terms of temps, noise and perf.

    Yeah I think it's the best card to keep under 300mm which is the max for a lot of cases (including mine with the front rad).

    I would be going with the following personally

    300mm limit - strix
    2 slot limit - SC2/FTW3
    No limit - amp extreme.

    That said the best test for these cards is cooling performance at a given noise output. Gamers nexus did a great article where they set the fan speeds as fast as possible with a 40Db noise limit on each card. Then under load they compared the temps. The strix destroyed the MSI gaming X, FTW3 and gigabyte auros extreme by 5-8 degrees. They don't have the zotac but that would be interesting.

    I bought an OC, but it feels like I got a non-OC one. It won't get over 2000 no matter what settings I use.

    Same my strix couldn't get to 2000 regardless of voltage. I guess it's just all silicon lottery regardless of model (unless they are binned).

    :o Damn that is one sexy looking block

    My Strix 1080ti peaked at 67 degrees (playing GTA) yesterday in this weather. I couldn't hear it above the ambient noise of outside. Taking the glass front off my already un-dustguarded 460x to bare my front fans (2 fans with a gap in the middle) has made a surprising difference.

    Still waiting for my ti today. Dpd txt me saying between 15:44 and 16:44. It's 19:02 and still nothing. Customer services can't reach the driver, dpd website is down.

    Company has turned into a bunch of cowboys on donkeys.

    Is that with V-Sync off? If so that's really impressive.
    I just hit 80C on my MSI 1080 Ti Gaming X.

    My fan profile made it up to 55% yesterday which saw the GPU at 66.

    The ASUS profile will keeping ramping can to try and maintain 65c. Not at any cost, but things have to get pretty extreme for things to rise into the 70s.

    I remain extremely impressed. I suspect my rig will be completely silent during gaming with normal ambient temps :)
