    Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Gaming

    I bought one of these and had better results out of the box with the card boosting to 1950 and sometimes as high as 1974.
    Unforunately I can't get it to overclock at all. Anythinmg over +50 on the core means that 3d apps won't run. Am I doing something wrong ?
    I aslo cannot hear it all - but it is inside an R4 silenced case.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    The gaming benchmark numbers for the SC2 seem to be way low - they should at the very least be well above the standard 1080 Ti scores.
    Thinking you either got a bad card, are having driver issues or possibly fans are set to lowest setting and it's running into heat issues.

    Why bother with thermal pads on the VRMs if the heatsink's only contact plate is over the GPU core? Surely the pads are doing more to restrict airflow than improve heat transfer?
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    The bottom of the fins over the pads are bent over to increase contact area, and you can see corresponding impressions in the thermal pads. So it's still making some contact, just without a separate contact plate
