would these even be something buyers would be interested in?
For yourself clearly Not. but for those who use the Cards Power for Compute and other applications beyond just gaming such as BOINC and F@Home.
the Overkill on the Cooling really pays off in spades. In the Past it's the overkill extra bits of Cooling that keep the card operational at the end of the Day.
I've purchased this card and cannot get it to detect on my motherboard.
Full troubleshooting details here,
If you're thinking about buying one of these and have an Asus Maximus Extreme VIII Motherboard (Pretty damn unlikely) i'd strongly recommend making sure you can test it on your setup first - i've just had to sell my card 2 days after purchasing and lost $150 because of this mistake.
That sounds like a pretty big issue... you're 100% sure it's because of the Motherboard model/chipset?
I wasn't positive before but now I'm fairly certain after seeing that there are several other cases online with the same issue using the same motherboard, all saying theyve had success using a different video card - unsure if the issue is on the motherboard or the GPU side...
Thanks for getting back to me on this... I'll let our engineers know so we can test it in house.... would be very strange if it was on our side, but I'll see if there's a fix in the works!
I started a thread on the Asus ROG Forums -
How did this go?
Just got back from a short holiday, but still no update from our engineers... but they've seen similar issues, so no fix just yet :/
Who's at fault, pitchforks await
This is normal for these cards due to Nvidia gpu boost 3.0
My one factory clocked to 2037mhz. That's almost 300mhz above the official max oc settings.0
While benching I can see there is a power draw issue as the program uses more than 100% power draw on stock settings.
When this happens it will drop your clock speeds severely as system recovers so as you don't crash.
There is an easy fix.
Don't use Aorus software it's buggy as hell for overclocking, and clashes alot with other monitoring tools.
I reccomend Msi afterburner or EVGA XOC to monitor and adjust gpu settings.
I use EVGA X OC prefer the layout.
Adjust your power percentage to max.
F3 bios will be 125%
F4 bios will be 150%
They both have the same max of 375w, just represented differently in each bios.
What this does is allow your system to use max about of watts available to the gpu which 375w instead of 250w. This will stabilise your system and stop the clock speeds suddenly dropping. The only drops that should occur now should be from nvidia 3.0 based temp reduction which are slow and gradual. Please note that pascal based cpu,s also have an in built temp based performace reduction feature as temps increase. For every 5 degrees temp increase there is approx 13mhz reduction in clock speed performance with stock voltages. With pascal based cards keeping temps as low as possible is very important if overclocking.
You should not need to adjust voltage if your not manually increasing clock speeds. If you had to do that for stability on factory clocks, that's unacceptable and a call for an RMA.
Now Run your Bench programs or games of choice with hardware monitor on and observe the power draw of progrqms. Once you have established the max power of your system, lower the power percentage and keep a few % above your maximum power draw from your previous program testing.
I have mine running over clocked to firstname.lastname@example.org with a gradual reduction due to Temps in in at email@example.com and that's where it stays. I have tested and adjusted both the power percentage, voltage percentage, and custom fan curve in my overclock to achieve this.
I bought this card and put itunder water with the EK block. I immediately observed that it is boosting way beyond advertised ranges - 2000Mhz is being passed out of the box and thats without changing power limits at all.
My card shipped with Bios edition 4, now replaced by "3P" which I have applied. This keeps the 375W max total with a lower idle vs "3" which is apparently equivalentish to the redacted revision 4..
There are many reports of 1080ti cards in general not always being stable with increased power and this is what I am seeing. Heaven crashes if I increase power to 150%. Same all the way down to 120%. I do see boosting increasing before the crash well above 2000Mhz. Its not a temp issue - the card never gets over 40 celsius. It looks like the stock card is set with a very high clock and that even just allocating more power will raise the clock further thanks to gpu boost.
The card benches flawless at stock settings but yet to find any stable increases at all that provide any benefit.
I'll do some testing on mine which is just using the stock cooler (that's why I grabbed it though) and let you know how I fare.
I'm getting 1,936MHz boost out of the box (higher than I was expecting) and a max of 75c under full load which is nice, considering it's still very quiet.
EDIT - I just realised that this is for the Extreme edition and I've just got the normal AURUS. I'll still look into the power limit vs. boost clock situation.
We've seen some mixed results from users and reviewers when it comes to overclocking or changing voltage.
Bryan from Tech Yes City took it up to 150% of the power target, so it might just be an unlucky unit for yourself?
What would be the best CPU to get the absolute best out of this card ?
9837 is the 3D Mark score with just remove the old card and throw a new one in
edit: its not the extreme edition but I guess the question still remains the same ...what is the best CPU to go with this card ?
You could also look at an i7 7700k from intel, just to make sure there isn't any bottlenecking
well going to wait a little bit and see how things go
had a look at Amazon and I can save over $200 plus shipping buying an Aorus X299 Gaming 7 mobo and 7820x CPU
but going to wait a bit longer.........
