Couple off issues I have found. I tried up to +225 and that made the benchmark freeze. Massive performance penalties were apparent in exchange for convincing reflections and light blooms. When overclocked the cooler responded well and still kept the card cool without the fans ramping up to fast and becoming a part of the auditory experience. I can't speak to current models, but I have original 2080ti and when I was talking to other water coolers, 100% of have coil whine. Thanks for sharing your results! You don't have to custom cool it as it's a learning curve and you'll need to do the proper research. The only difference is the factory overclock clock settings.
I have some thermal grizzly paste coming today. This indicates manual overclocking remains the way to go for many, and you can see that is the case when looking at our Shadow of the Tomb Raider results next. In reality those bumps don't equate to much of a difference in terms of raw fps so it seems like the Black Edition is a really good bargain, especially under water. Check out the list below. To be blunt, there was nothing discernible here either.
I might change this in the future, especially when something new and better comes out. What I've noticed with the firmware for both Pascal and Turing is that if you can keep 'em under 40c you'll see some magic happen with the core. Again, there are other brands that are not included in this list. With my single 2080 Ti I'm getting great performance. Did you get coil whine after you added water block.
Positive air pressure is magic. You can usually improve that by turning the pump down to 80% or so, and it shouldn't make that much difference on cooling performance. At least the cost jump from 2080 to 2080ti is somewhat comprehensible. Flip your fans as intake and try it out. I had a 2080 before this one, I definitely notice a huge difference as well. I added a Barrow waterblock that I previously bought for my 2080 which brought the temps down to about 64c under continuous load I overclocked the core by +180 and the memory by +900 and it runs stable just over 2000mhz. I was surprised it performed so well.
This was a rock solid overclock and between all of our games, was a 4. The card supports up to an 8K resolution, giving you plenty of options when it comes to monitor shopping. Typically, the actual running clock speed is well over the base boost clock anyway. I thought it would be detrimental, but actually reduced the temperature to a max of 78c, and helped with positive air pressure so the hot air escapes from the side panels. The software is able to adjust the fans manually or set custom curves, core voltage, and overclock the cards manually. That might help with the whine.
After putting a heatkiller, the temps were great, but I'm having trouble overclocking past what it was already set at before putting it in a custom loop. Ray Tracing will also not be tested here as none of the titles out that we have, currently support the technology. But compared to a Founders Edition 1080 Ti blower its much quieter and lower pitch. You can put the fanciest cooler you want on a 2080, it's not going to compete with a 2080 Ti. Note: This page is best viewed in Desktop or Desktop view. This is when bullets start flying, explosions and volumetric fog really kicks in. With the stock fan, it'd be closer to 1900s when heated up.
At 2205 I can only get the ram to 8300 without a crash. Check the full description in the wiki before making grand claims. My 2080 Ti has been running awesome!!! Proud to say my last 3 gpus were evga 980 ti, 1080ti , sadly I just couldn't justify the added cost of the other models this go round. But I did overclock as well, why not? I replaced the stock cooler with a waterblock, so I wouldn't know too much about the noise. Is it something a complete beginner can do? Hopefully this can help you decide.
It isn't the best waterblock, but it is generally better than air cooling. I posted a pic in the owners thread from my timespy score it at that time it held 2115mhz. The benchmarks have not changed, just the name. I recently bought one and it didn't have an A chip and so did someone else on Reddit. I'm waiting mine to arrive on Friday. You should always use your own judgement and realise that the only person responsible for any damage caused by overclocking is you. Also, I wouldn't plan on switching to watercooling, so I'm not sure what the viability of trying to overclock it would be.
