  • @Peorth dito ko na lang itanong hehe.

    Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti Aorus Xtreme Edition

    Abang na lang siguro ako bumaba ulit.
    May nabasa ako na may heat issue ang aorus and also may problem sa speed nya kasi company overclock daw.
    Wala po prob sa inyo?

    TIA

    Based on your explanation, i think i'll go for the Gaming X version. If ever di ko ma optimized un PUBG ko. Salamat!

    Dunno where you read that but there are a lot of reviews for the Aorus Xtreme Edition and none of them mention any temperature issues. In fact it's praised for the high performance of the cooling solution (low fan noise, no temperature hotspots, etc.). Note that all these reviews have a section where they put the GPU under stress and check the temps, with the better reviews having thermal cameras and individual temperature probes. For example Guru3D tried to overclock the already overclocked card and here is a quote from their review: (<click here for link>)

    Use any tweaking utility of your preference of course. We use AfterBurner based on personal preference, Gigabyte has nice tweaking software available as well, it's just that advanced overlay and tweak functionality that AB offers that has my personal preference. Our applied tweak:

    Core Voltage : +100%
    Power Limit : 150%
    Temp. limit : 90C
    Core Clock : + 40
    Memory Clock : +510 MHz (=12246 MHz effective data-rate)
    FAN RPM: default

    Now we increased that power limiter to 150%, now that is total brutal overkill. But the bigger TDP does boost performance a bit overclocked until the GPU runs into other limiters like voltage and load. However we noticed that after a ~330 Watt TDP, no substantial perf increase was really detected. Hence in the end if you tweak we recommend you to keep that limiter at say ~ 130% - Increasing it higher (withouth gain) also heats up the VRM more which is not necessary then.

    Now +40 MHz on the core, you might feel that our sample is not the best overclocker on the GPU core right?, but you need to revise that idea, Gigabyte already nearly maxed out the overclock for you by tweaking it so close to it's maximum capability. And that standard tweak is covered by a 4 year warranty. Not bad eh? More Voltage 100% offset applied was stable. Memory as well, we noticed some artifacts at 550 MHz under a stress run, 510 (x2 DDR rate) thus 1.225 GHz was the maximum. Once overclocked keep this in mind: Due to the dynamic nature of the boost clock, your frequency is not fixed. Limiters and monitors, temperature, load, power and voltages will continuously alter a maximum clock state.

    With this overclock and with that 150% power limiter the card is only slightly more audible at 40 Dba (you can hear a bit of airflow, that's all) at roughly 75 Degrees C. Impressive.


    So far, the only GTX 1080 Ti review I've read that has issues with temperatures is the Zotac one, due to a faulty cooling design with regard to the VRMs.

    BTW, I've done the Unigine Heaven and Superposition benchmarks myself and the highest temps I've seen are around 74 or 75C, on a case with somewhat limited ventilation (Phanteks Enthoo Evolv TG) and no aircon in the room.

  • ^thanks Sir,
    Nice review - mukang matutuloy na ako sa Aorus kasi gusto ko din talaga Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming tapos nakita ko tong Z370 GAMING M5 with free MSI headset pa.

    Ang price difference is 3k so imbes na sa mobo sa GPU ko na lang ilagay un 3k na budget? hehe any inputs sir?
  • I have good experience with my MSI Gaming X 1080Ti SLI..Even though the top card is hotter by 10-14 degrees, avg temps are still on 50 to 60 degrees while 40 to 50 degrees on the bottom card..Although my room has an AC with ambient temps of 23 degrees..

    I had the 1080Ti Gaming X's since April and they still going strong..I overclocked them to 2050/2038 and been running for 24/7..

    Actually, my suggestion is to go for the non-Xtreme version of the Aorus because at its price point of 40,960 it's the cheapest of the higher-end GTX 1080 Ti models. Here's a comparison of the 3 GPUs:

    MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X
    Boost Clock / Base Clock / Memory Frequency
    1683 MHz / 1569 MHz / 11124 MHz (OC Mode)
    1657 MHz / 1544 MHz / 11016 MHz (Gaming Mode)
    1582 MHz / 1480 MHz / 11016 MHz (Silent Mode)
    Price: 41-42K

    Aorus GTX 1080 Ti 11G
    Boost: 1708 MHz / Base: 1594 MHz in OC mode
    Boost: 1683 MHz / Base: 1569 MHz in Gaming mode
    Price: 40.9K

    Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G
    Boost: 1746 MHz / Base: 1632 MHz in OC mode
    Boost: 1721 MHz / Base: 1607 MHz in Gaming mode
    Price: 44.9K

    Just in terms of overclock speed the aptly-called Xtreme Edition pulls ahead at 1746 MHz, followed by the vanilla Aorus at 1708 MHz, then the Gaming X at 1683 MHz. Since the vanilla Aorus is actually the cheapest of the three while being second fastest, it's the most bang-for-buck. Unfortunately it was last posted by P***b in early August so this might actually be out of stock. In the end, I think you won't actually notice any difference between the three because the difference is likely only a few FPS, so any of these GPUs will do. Cooling is also no problem with the three, so maybe aesthetics (and availability!) will dictate what you'll buy.

    Regarding the Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming versus the Z370 GAMING M5, I did a quick peek at the two and they're pretty much identical specs-wise. The former just has more software bundled and fancier aesthetics/lighting so if you're just going for performance I doubt you'll notice any difference if you got the cheaper mobo.

  • guys i have plan upgrading my gtx 1070 to either 1080 or 1080ti

    im using 1080p monitor vg248q

    gusto ko sanang ipush up to 100fps+ lalo na sa mga triple A games, i have read na minsan hirap parin ipush ung 100+ fps ung 1080ti?
  • A GTX 1080 Ti is an overkill for a 1080p monitor. AFAIK, a 1080 Ti will only fail to push the FPS to 100+ in some AAA games at higher resolutions, not at 1080p.
