    Is the shy OC just a matter of Nvidia clocking the FE so high to begin with compared to the after market cards?

    I just learned that EVGA's Precision 1 OC Scanner hates AMD Ryzen systems......

    I have a feeling that is some of it. Too easy to clock it higher without much issue and now they have a better cooler with the FE. I finally dialed in a bulletproof overclock a bit ago. 2050MHz actual clock. RAM OC I will hold for a surprise.

    Been working on getting bulletproof long term usage OC now for about 8 hours.

    One of the reasons I was kind of happy my first order fell through is that I ended up with a Gigabyte 2080 instead. The one and only teardown review I saw on Guru for that card was awesome. You take out 7 or 8 screws on the back side, the back plate stays on, and bam the whole front of the card just drops off.

    So... well... you know... I have some liquid metal left and a lot of clear nail polish from my last 8700k delid. :) Should I?

    Hehe, well, all the AIBs were banned from sampling HardOCP cards, so I have not seen but one of those yet and we sourced it out of China...

    I actually did read it mostly, but I had to read the article twice more to catch that one short sentence at the end of the paragraph, lol.

    So far I've only read about one custom BIOS. I believe it was the MSI Duke/Trio series and it allows something up to around 300 watts vs 250. Also uses 3 connectors to do it.
