    Yeah true!

    What do you think about SLI 1080 or selling my 1080 for a single 1080TI?

    Single 1080ti is pretty fast. I'm not a fan of SLI/CF Unless your 4K 100Hz i dont think SLI is needed for the most part. Unless you have time to configure if something goes wrong i would be inclined to always opt for the fastest single you can afford.

    Unless you need to have a rendering PC it doesn't need SLI enabled.

    Im no enthusiast though so some of the other fellas here will probably give you a different perspective as im a casual gamer.

    wont be this year :p

    I was suspect we hear about it next May. NV can take their time, I want big improvements from Volta not an incremental. Basically grab a 1080ti and game untll your hears content.

    Yeah I'll probably save and wait then. A GTX1080 at 3440x1440p is still very good

    I'm not ready for a new build again, my current rig is the only time I've gone all out. I'm happy to skip this coming generation since my rig still pushes well beyond 100fps @ 1440p Ultra.

    Maybe 2 more generations, I'll be ready. When 4k @ Ultra can push out 100fps on average :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: Ohhhhhh yeaeeaaahh!

    Hi guys,

    I have a GTX 1070 from an acer predator G3 desktop, it looks a bit like a founders edition in the fan design. What options do I have to overclock? Was thinking of at least replacing the thermal compound with some liquid metal. Should I get an aftermarket cooler? Can I flash another bios on the card to increase core voltages?

    1. Overclock till you hit thermals
    2. No use just any normal NON CONDUCTIVE thermal paste
    3. Can get a water cooling block and possibly AIO for the reference
    4. No biosflash will help, you have to hard/shunt mod to get past power limit which beds water cooling at a minimum

    Random questions guys

    My water loop just leaked and a few things need replacing.

    PSU is cooked.
    Mobo is cooked.
    CPU still works I think.

    My GFX that I got from last year still works though. I am thinking of keeping it because from what I can see in the past year nvidia doesn't seem to have any signficant leaps of performance this year - is that comment more or less correct?

    Is it the Titan X in your sig'? I assume it's the Pascal version?

    If both those answers are yes, then I'd keep it because there's nothing worth upgrading to yet.

    Yes its pascal

    I read that the 1080Ti and the titan Xp are faster but even then it looked like only a few %. I haven't followed the market for a while so I just watched to make sure I was right about that bit. It used to that graphics cards advanced at least 30% per year.

    Importing that titan was such a pain I will just keep using it for now.

    Definitely not worth upgrading for the few percent, stick with the Titan X mate :thumbup:

    if it is indeed a reference cooler, grab 1 of these (finding stock can be tricky) and run a decent fan.. ive never seen over 50c on my 1080ti version and its silent..
