    Is there any alternative software out there for monitoring and controlling EVGA iCX cards than Precision XOC? I'm getting really annoyed with that amateur hour bullshit software, but since I've got a 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid, I seem to be kind of stuck with it.

    I might just switch to Afterburner anyway and live with the loss of monitoring and control over the card.

    No alternative, it's really just a skin on the same code as afterburner so I don't get what's the big deal. Both apps have shit UI

    No, it isn't. Precision XOC is a completely different program from Afterburner.

    And for iCX cooler cards, in particular, Precision XOC offers controls (ie. separate radiator and PWM fan controls) and sensor readouts (2 GPU temps, 3 mem temps, and 4 PWM temps) that I don't believe any other program can do.

    Just don’t use Precision X. While it lets you stare at a bunch of temp sensors all over the card, doesn’t mean you have to. There is little real world benefit to knowing all the temp readings like that.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. My issue was more the ability to control the fans, but I'll just let the ones I can't control do their thing automagically.

    I agree precision X is pretty buggy, but afterburner can't control individual fans with profiles and doesn't have the sensor functionality for the EVGA cards. When it works though and I can get it to launch in a particular game, Precision works ok
