That's really amazing.
Not sure if trolling but prior to the Kitchen video of Mr Jacket man clearly using a 220-250w max RTX 2080 Ti to compare against the 3070 & 3080 and especially the RTX 3080 vs RTX 2080 Ti video of Doom Eternal at 4k. I ended up running the exact same sequence at the beginning recording the FPS of my card and it wasn't far off the 3080, prior to my el' cheapo water cooling. I had just finished Doom Eternal days ago maxed at 4k and was 100fps+++ at all times. I ran the same intro of the video where you first meet a boss on Ultra Nightmare (max settings for everything graphically ) + HDR, which they didn't do, and my FPS was within 2-10% of the 3080 and min 25%+ faster at all times compared to the 2080ti they show cased.
Hate to think how many other RTX 2080 Ti's are out there needlessly underclocked with the TU102-300A chip. Some must have super crappy cooling, fan profiles to boil the card & low power limits. So weird how a card can range from 220w-380w with the same PCB and and even the 3x 8 pin models can run 525w if needed. Get some super speeds with that with good case air flow and decent water cooling no doubt.
Funny, how prior to those videos was going to sell my 2080ti to get even the 3070. This was even prior to the AIO water cooling upgrade a few months back due to the hype. Considering I bought my card in late 2018 for $1279 and the price went up a fair bit, especially main covid time. After plonking the upgrade from 260-312w bios to the OC branded version of my card with a 338w PL, adjusting fan profile keeping it in the mid 60s max (the overkill 2.7x heatsink and overkill couple big fans did a fine job) had no issues running a constant 2085-2115mhz +800mem all day. Now its 2115-2160mhz +1050mem with the AIO and lives in the 40s. Just voltage limited to 1.093 or 1.068 without the +100 in MSI Afterburner.
So, if you want to enjoy the fruits of the ever improving drivers for the RTX cards, such as DLSS 2.0 & have a TU102-300A chip plus Samsung memory.. Fix any cooling issue, put a 312-380w bios on there that is suited to your card and happily beat 3070s in everything and even give the 3080 a run for its money.
If I come into money and there is availability, I will probably get a RTX 3080 Ti with 3x 8pin though but for now, its the fist time haven't moved up a "generation".
Apart from beating every 3070 in the world in Time Spy, Port Royal, Wild Life etc (see attached) it beats the average 3080 in tests apart from Port Royal (less than 10%). Checking vs the RTX 3080 in Wild Life it also beats the avg RTX 3080 by10% but makes it into the top 60. Has the same 4-5 people making up about 50% of the scores above mine. Weird
All that is the reason, why I normally skip one architecture iteration, unless you get something fundamentally new or better. Running a 2080 ti, I can't see how I would gain anything "tangible" in the games I play, with a RTX 3xxx series card.
I'm having some temperature issues with my Aorus 2080 Ti, mainly due to the heat in my house; but it made me do some research to improve the cooling.
Has anyone looking into the ID-COOLING IceFlow 240 AIO VGA Liquid Cooler? https://www.ple.com.au/Products/643...ei_KYpYAXes7eLPLHlzr_-OYeQ1bJS2MaAkMUEALw_wcB
I haven't but considering I am just using a 120mm rad that comes with the Corsair H55 and keeps my memory and GPU temps right down with the Noctua G12 bracket and replacement 92mm fan that it comes with.
Just now with it running near 375 watts 2145mhz & +1000 memory everything seems to be in order. Certainly not overheating. So, as long as you install it correctly it will kick arse?
I have the same card and my thermal paste looked similar to the OP's. Only about 60% of the heatsink was in contact with the die and my temps were around 83c. Put on some fresh paste and it's now running at about 72c so a huge difference.
