This needs to be upvoted. Buying that card is like throwing money away.

take it this is the non-k version. Are you shooting for 60fps?

i have 1440p 144hz monitor and the 2070 super does well enough for me. AAA games won't reach 144hz on ultra of course but that's where a gsync monitor steps in and makes things look glorious.

nice build! couple of questions about that AIO: Aren't you supposed to have it so that the cables aren't hanging down on the fan portion? That's what i've seen in other builds anyways and feedback from others.

Also, with the AIO tubes resting on GPU, wouldn't that warm up the water that's circulating?

Not so sure what you mean for "casual."

I have a 2070super and not sure if I would go for anything less for 1440p. Division 2 and Outer worlds go above 60fps in 1440p in very high settings, but not by much in many areas. 75-80.

I def wouldn't go below a 2070, that's for sure.

Mind sharing your 1080ti sc2 fan % RPM's under full load? I've tried a couple and they are way too loud for me, getting up to 59% fan speed under full load in my meshify c case with 2 140mm fans at 1000RPM on the front.

Reviewers say how quiet this card is, and I guess I'm just spoiled from my 970sc that i never heard. Great build btw.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "650watts enough for this build?"

I'm with you 100%. Right now my mindset is this: I have over 400 days left on warranty. I'll enjoy my 1080ti until the latest refurb they send me dies when warranty is up, and then buy a NEW gpu then.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "650watts enough for this build?"

Thanks for the feedback. I'll stick with my 650w and return the one that's coming.

I got a little paranoid since this is the second GPU I had to RMA. I guess I just had bad luck with buying a used GPU that was used for mining, and then the refurbished one they replaced it with simply didn't hold up...

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Please help (power supply issue?)"

  • 1 month ago

So thought i had it all figured out, but when I stress tested the GPU on my friends rig with a particular game (Resident evil 2), it never froze.

I tried this game out on my rig, and of course it doesn't freeze as well. Though other games will on that same hard drive. I cranked the resolution on both so that the GPU was doing what it could.

I though I ruled it out being the GPU but this nightmare continues.

So this is what I plan to do:

1) Swap power supply and see if that helps. If not... 2) RMA the card.

Any other suggestions would be great. This is bothering me more than I should let it, and can be hard to think straight.

I never RMA"d a PSU, don't I have to send it in while my computer sits there? Or will they send a working unit in first and I can send back the old one?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "PC frozen, new gpu. any ideas?"

  • 1 month ago

Try manually cranking the fans to 100% on GPU. My first 1080ti would freeze once it hit a certain temp (even though it was still in low 70's). That told me all i needed to know and RMA'd the GPU.

P.S. my second GPU is doing this now, so I feel your pain to say the least.

If you can afford a more powerful CPU, then go for it. I've learned the hard way in the past skimping on a cpu and putting it all in GPU. Years later you can be proud that your 3900x going nice and strong while you install your RTX 4080 ti

yeah i'm def RMA-ing the card. But was looking at more of a discussion to see what ppl may think it may be. Bad memory or something?

It's still under warranty by evga, even though I bought it second hand. Won't be doing that again, regardless of the rep teh ebay seller has.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "580 used vs 580 new?"

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

I will never buy used again, even though it was probably mostly bad luck:

Seller had great reputation and bought what seemed to be a great deal in December. "Excellent like new condition." The GPU seemed to be running hotter than it should, so i opened it up and it was absolutely filthy. Worked hard on it to get it cleaned up and apply thermal paste and it ran fine until recently where it always freezes up.

Never wanted to buy used in first place, but needed to upgrade and 2080's were awfully high considering only 8gb vram.

So if you have a choice, go new.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Gtx 1080 ti fan curve"

  • 7 months ago

It's common for FE to be at that temp. 84c is fine, and in fact it's designed to throttle so that it stays at that temp. If you want it to be lower you can by cranking up fans. Should give a little extra boost while adding noise.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Buying USED?"

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

Thought I'd never buy used, but didn't want to spend over 800 on a 2080 when I could buy a 1050ti sc2 for 550 used. So I went on ebay and made sure it was a card that had 30 day return policy.

It wasn't in the best shape, despite the description and user feedback. But I couldn't blame seller really since I had to wait for other parts to arrive before putting together and testing out. It seemed to be running warmer than it should have but a good cleaning and reapplying thermal paste did the trick.

Won't buy used again though unless I'm absolutely broke and if GPU prices remain a joke.

Do you know where I might start with my current 4.7? I'm guessing you up the voltage in small incriments and stress test to see if it's stable.

that's great info! Overclocking is addictive. I should be happy with 4.7 but now i want to push further lol, esp after you wrote this.

I ask because with my 1080ti i had ZERO issues with apex. Then with the 2080 it's lagging like crazy and crashing Rolled back drivers to what you prob have but still it almost freezes for split seconds routinely then back to usual.

Are you getting this intermittent lag with apex on the 2080? I rolled back to the same drivers you probably did and it seems very routine that there's a spit second lag taking place ever few seconds and it's very annoying.
