    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.

    Is it fairly quiet under load? I'm expecting it isn't too bad.

    Inaudible in general use, when it's under big strain it's a nice purr, like a powerful lion purring away xD.

    I needed a blower to dump the heat out my my MATX case. Thinking about an NZXT AIO setup near summer with rear exhaust. Keeps temps low and no noise under big load.

    Ok great, guessing you're feeding it with cool air to help.

    Went and gots an EVGA 2080 OC Gaming as an upgrade to my venerable 980 Ti.

    Already seeing doubled 3DMark graphics scores, before any overclocking. Also I wasn't expecting my CPU scores to go up 14% too? :)

    Urrrggghhhh!!!

    Two different 2080 designs in SLi?

    My OCD combined with a windowed case, could never permit such an aesthetic abomination. :p

    Right what a week I have had got a good deal on a 1080ti but guess what Hermes apparently left in my out house lol I don't have one what a waste of space. Cut a long drama short I now am the owner of a EVGA 2080 RTX black for £ 650 think it was a pretty good deal now my question is what sort of clocks people getting in general managed to push core +150 +1000 mem just waiting to see if it crashes' in any games yet. touch wood been ok so far. so boosting to 2015 memory 8000

    Well, what do you know, I ordered myself a Palit Gamerock 2080 today, will have it on Monday. At £679 you can't really go wrong. My Palit Gamerock 1080 has been an incredible performer and will be going up for sale.

    This week I bought a new monitor, AOC AG271QG, 500GB SSD and 16GB RAM. Now the 2080. Guess I'm ready for The Division 2 :)

    Heya guys,

    Also new to this forum and proud owner of a MSI GeForce RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO. Arrived yesterday and after installing it yesterday evening immediately started OCing. Will post photo's when I return from work again.

    Managed to get a stable OC with a memory clock @ 8000mhz (+1000) and core only +40. Will run some benchmark and post some photo's of the setup once I'm home.

    Does anyone know if the cards are still being shipped with Micron memory? Checked GPU-Z and mine showed Samsung, and the +1000 went without any problem. No artifacts at all and will continue the push once I return home, since I ran out of time yesterday to test any higher values then the current OC.
