    Der8auer overclocks a GeForce RTX 2080 using dry ice

    But a 20 per cent performance uplift requires 50 per cent more power.

    Re: Der8auer overclocks a GeForce RTX 2080 using dry ice

    I remember before the launch a lot of people (to be fair, the usual Nvidia fanboys on various sites) were claiming that 2.5GHz on air would be simple with this range.

    Turns out that 2100MHz is the practical limit. Still, it's still a beast.

    Undervolting mods might be more interesting.

    Am I the only one that water cools CPU/GPUs and never overclocks them? I do it to get better temps, prolonge component life and be in control of the thermal and noise aspects. Not to get a score on synthetic benchmarks.

    Yes you are ...as long as the temps are below that of the air cooled card your still doing what you want
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

    2x GPUs at 100% use and not passing the 45 C mark is why I do it

    Hardly surprising with a big fat power hungry chip like that.

    I never OC GPu's as i've no need to and mostly run CPU's on stock coolers (wraith) and AIO for intel and amd in others but i don;t usually oc them. if i do, i select 'turbo' mode in the bios and don;t mess with the other stuff as i cannot be bothered. i know it defeats the object but i like the look of AIO's and the wraith coolers look good.
