OK then. That's a warranted upgrade. I'm on a 1080...
more testing, and maybe the first thermal step down happens at 34? FTW3 bios.
MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X
1080 Strix. Went from 1080p to 3440x1440 so needed some umphf
Not logged in for a few weeks, so a bit delayed, but here's the Timespy run. This is with Afterburner putting +40 Mhz core and +125 Mhz memory (+50 doesn't actually increase the core clock more than +40 does and can cause an isolated crash in Timespy for some reason):
An much needed upgrade from my old 980GTX which served me well.
Welcome and on TROH.

To get on the Roll of Honour all you have to do is post a pic with your user name on it of your RTX 2080.
Have any of the three fan or three slot cards proven to be faster than the Founders Edition?
I just took a quick look around and it seems the FE is still the fastest 2080 on the forum.
When it comes raw performance numbers there isn't much to separate any of the cards by more than a few percent. The reason to choose a card will be one or more of the following: price, aesthetics, noise levels, desired temps (all are well within range though, case config dependent), and/or brand loyalty. There is no card that can be chosen because it performs significantly faster.
The FE is a fine choice. Personally though, it's always on fan and awkwardness for cleaning put me off (getting to those fans is a nightmare, given how many screws they've put in the damn thing!). If watercooling, it's a fine choice, although I'd lean towards the cheaper EVGA Black Edition for that purpose.
Anyone using the 2080 black edition ? If so what fps are you getting on games at full ultra such as Bfv at 4k only any other top titles please feel free to say thanks.
I've got my card set-up in my system now, will a picture of it installed with my name be OK?
So I've been lucky enough to get my hands on a Zotac 2080 (won it) blower card, not my choice of cooling which is where i'm headed with this. I'm assuming it'll be a reference board under the blower so what are my options regarding upgrading the cooling and as long as I'm careful will my warranty survive should I need to refit the original cooler at a later date? Is it possible to get hold of Nvidia's reference cooler as I much prefer the look of it and I would expect it to be a fair bit quieter than the blower at speed.
Also this is an upgrade from an out of warranty Gigabyte 980oc G1 Windforce so I'm used to a lot less noise than I'm expecting form the new card. Just waiting on my DisplayPort cable to arrive today before I try it out for the first time.
Edit: Well as long as I don't mind temps in the low 60's and keep the card spinning at 50% or below the noise isn't an issue for now. If I want more than 50% fan speed it's ridiculously noisy. Definitely wants a cooling upgrade by Summer. Otherwise completely underwhelmed by the performance due to lack of games that really benefit from any of it's features.
Which SKU have you got there please?
