    That is what I have and the power limit is only 120% for me.

    You have to restart the pc after choosing the BIOS that allows 130%.

    Awesome. Thanks for that. I thought both Bios where the same and you could just flash the second one. I feel a bit stupid now. Thanks for your input.

    Cant load the H overclock article atm. Got a Gigabytr Xtreme Gaming yesterday. Out of box boost clock is 2.0ghz in geaven. I imagine next steps are to max temp and pl sliders, then go from there.

    Can't wait to get my grubby hands on the ASUS Strix AG cards that are incoming. Sold my 980 Tis so am without a PC at the moment.
    Will post my results once I get them in.

    I have twin PNY 1080 FE cards. The first I managed to get +215/+460 but the second wasn't nearly as good with driver crashes and lockups with anything over +190/+410. Afterburner lists the average boost clock on the first GPU at 2052mhz (3DMark lists clock at 2,076, never checked for the second one :p) Together they give a graphics score of 44,853 in FireStrike so I'm pretty happy with them.

    Why is everyone posting their OC values and not what their cards boost to? It doesn't really tell us anything when nearly every card has a different base clock. :(

    Installed only one card since my SLi bridge isn't here yet.

    Is it me or does boost 3.0 works in mysterious ways that can't decide what clocks to run the card at.
    I pushed about +185 / +500 on a single AG card and am scoring about 5717 in Firestrike Ultra (5698 graphics).
    I see boost clocks ranging from 2000 - 2088 during the test with no clear single clock where it stabilizes.

    Need to test more. Haven't opened my second card yet.

    Remorse is settling in since I was scoring about 5100 with a single GTX 980 Ti Classified... [​IMG]

    My understanding is that only Micron makes the GDDR5X modules.

    A few questions for the guys.
    1) Can't seem to push beyond 5700 marks in ultra. Dafuq! My CPU is clocked at 4.3 Ghz about now but don't understand how I am almost 1300 less than the norm on my clocks (2050 is where the card stabilizes). However, 3dmark is the only application where the card keeps jumping around between 1948-2088 clocks. In Deus Ex MD it is pegged at 2063 and down to 2050 during the bench and gaming.
    2) Can it be because I didn't do a clean driver install?
    3) Can it be because I am only using Windows 7?
    4) Can it be that the latest NVidia drivers 372.70 are crap?
    5) Is there any way to run OC mode on the card without resorting to using GPU Tweak 2?
    6) Where can I download GPU Tweak 2 from? The website that I am directed to doesn't let me download it (asus something).
    Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Runing with v-sync/g-sync enabled during benches? That would limit frame rates.

    Tried with and without GSync with no difference. I don't have vsync on anyways.
    Did the DDU. It cleaned about 30 GB of crap in my OS drive lol.
    Re-ran the bench. Scored the same.
    Installed second card and first default run was 9182 in Firestrike Ultra. My 980 Tis scored about 9003 maxed out.
    Need to test more but thus far, what nonsense people say about 1080s being 30% faster than 980 Tis. Will test games and see what's up.

    I dont seem to have much luck going above the stock oc, so either in soing it wrong or had bad luck. Ocassionally can get it to 2050 in heaven, but crashes quick anywhere near 2.1. This is with all sliders maxed.

    You mentioned 1300 less than the norm. That could be Windows 7. Seems like that consistently scores lower than Windows 10 by a decent margin in similar systems on graphics benches. What motherboard do you have? It's definite strange you're getting almost the same score in sli as you got with the 980ti's. Something isn't right. I plugged my 1080 in and instantly got 2k higher in firestrike than I got with my overclock 980ti.

    Yep my oced 1080 gets over 18000 vs 16000 for my oced 980 ti. And my graphics score went from 20200 to just over 25000.

    I was using the mobile version when I mentioned which mobo. Ha. That's a hell of a good OC on your cpu. And that's one weird issue with 3dmark. So how is actual gaming feeling? Maybe it's something screwy with 3dmark.

    So I played a ton of games over the weekend to test out the cards. My biggest improvements were in the following games:

    Ass Creed Syndicate. Game was smoothest as ever. I don't know what frames I was getting but getting around the city was butter. In the past, it did feel the game was hitching a bit everytime I had a line launcher across far distances as new buildings were loaded. I went to the settings and I see the RAM consumption is marked as 7 GB. I can see how the 8 GB is beneficial to me in this game.

    Replayed a couple of levels in Doom and my word, what smoothness. At 1440P maxed out settings the game was butter whether I was doing glory kills, jumping off areas, blasting stuff. The game was virtually hitting 145+ fps all throughout. Previously, in the first levels, I used to see dips at around 120 and sometimes even 110 when doing a glory kill. Now, it never goes down. The smoothness was real.

    Fired up The Division and again I see the game performing fantastic. I do notice difference of fps from 75 up to 90 outdoors. Indoors, I am hitting about 120 fps. Game runs fantastic though no change in smoothness apart from high fps increase.

    I also tried Tomb Raider for a bit in DX 11 and it was fine. No real difference.

    Tried StarCraft 2 and no real difference. Actually the card was not boosting to full in that game which was weird.

    BF 1 Open Beta was blissful. 95-120 fps was the norm. Nothing was bringing down frames in that game.

    Deus Ex is tons better than my 980 Ti. Not because of SLi since I am not sure if SLi is working for me. I am getting only 53 fps so need to trouble shoot that bit.

    All said and done, it is not all that bad. 15-20% was expected. Some games see real gains whilst others are nice to have.
    I still have remorse though and if FH3 does not support SLi and Gears of War 4 then I will be pissed.

    P.S. I am running the cards in OC mode. They boost to 2050 but then back down to 2025 or 2012 depending on game. I can max out without any change in voltage or fan curve to 2050/11000. Card temperatures are also decent with top card maxing out at 76 C and bottom at 60 C. Usually in most games, they hover around 70 C and 55 C.

    With my Xtreme Gaming I've had more luck with the new afterburner. Stable 2050 boost after 90 minutes after increasing fans to 66% plus maxing all sliders. This is only a +25 offset, which is the default oc mode.

    My MSI 1080 Armor OC with a 3570K@4.4ghz results:

    Core +175
    Mem +400
    Power: 121
    Fan: default
    Voltage:

    Boost in games at 2075-2088-2100 (usually 2100 stable). Temps around 65-75 (usually 68-72). It's being a hot week over here so I'm pretty comfortable with these temps.

    It was stable on benchmarks and games at +225 but OCCT detected errors at +185 or higher and I know for experience that this means the OC is not really stable and would crash with some game eventually.

    Memory was stable at 500 but I didn't gain any speed over +425 and it started to give lower benchmark results over 450 (ECC joining the party over +425 then).

    3dmark11 extreme graphics gives 10933 (with the stock OC gives 10042, so a 9% improvement).

    Firestrike gives 15704, with 24468 graphics and 7819 physics. Yeah the CPU is lowering the score and probably hurting performance at 1080p on some games but I doubt it will be the bottleneck once I upgrade my tv to 4K soon (and if it does I'll get a 6700K).

    My MSI Gaming X 8G managed to get +150 Core / +150 mem stable, with clocks staying at 2075 in most games, this is with 121% power target.

    I haven't really tried pushing further, I will do so over the weekend.

    (Also, got Micron Memory).

    Otherwise though, I am happy with the card, my 970 was really preventing me from playing any of the newer games, and it's a nice change that I could play FO4 with everything maxed and still be as smooth as butter (970 sli struggled with God rays, 1080 was fine with it).

    MSI 1080 Aero OC.

    Core: +150
    Mem: +400
    Power: 100
    Fan: N/A
    Voltage: +0

    Boost in games is 2063-2076 and stable. Max temp is 48. I can probably go higher with my custom water cooling setup; But I'm satisfied with these results.

    Just got my 1080 from EVGA's step up program. It's just the ACX 3.0 model with a single 8 pin power plug, but tweaking the curve (MSI Afterburner) I get 2,202MHz/11,112MHz! I scored 20 066 in Fire Strike

    39C is the most I've seen it hit while under my Kraken X41.

    Lol you are not even close to maintaining 2200mhz. I get a little higher graphics score than you while just running 2100. I scored 18 038 in Fire Strike

    It's true that it fluctuates a little sometimes in 3Dmark tests. In games and in Valley it's bang on 2202 though - and all I really care about are games since benchmarks are just for penis size comparisons :)

    This thread is pretty much completely useless since all the cards have different stock clocks from 1500 to 1800 and all these +90 or +200 give absolutely zero information. So did you go from 1500 to 1590 or from 1800 to 1890? See what I'm saying. At least post your default clocks. Jesus... 7 pages and noone figured this out.

    So you bump this old thread just to make that comment? And looking at most posts, people did list their actual clocks too...

    I have a Founder's Edition card with an aftermarket air cooler. Was able to push the core +275mhz and reached a max clock of 2.177Ghz in Heaven Benchmark. Boost in GPU-Z shows 2.009Ghz so go figure

    This seems like a good thread to ask a stupid question.

    I'm running a Gigabyte GTX 1080 Waterforce WB in a custom loop. Power slider maxed, voltage slider maxed, +100 core and +500 mem, in game core clock of 2152MHz. Temperature tops out at about 41c.

    Yesterday I had a driver crash. This OC is pretty new so I figured I'd back off the core a notch to +90.

    In game core clock still tops out at 2152MHz. No crash since then, but I don't understand why my offset change didn't do anything.

    Using Gigabyte's OC utility since it also manages the LEDs in the card.

    The card tried to go up a voltage bin from 2152 MHz and crashed when it requested the new voltage. Backing it down 10 MHz in the settings prevented the card from trying to go up to the next bin. Bins are actually in 13 MHz increments on NVIDIA cards, meaning your card tried going up from 2152 to 2165 MHz with the next voltage step and crashed.

    Try your +100 offset again, but this time turn the voltage slider down to +0%. If it's not stable or won't take to that setting then increment the voltage by +5% at a time until you get stable. You'll probably get better results with a lower voltage offset as increasing this setting just makes your card hit the power limit faster.
