    I did 2-day. It's being delivered today. I completed my order just a couple minutes after they initially went on sale Tuesday.
    Vega didn't use the included shroud; he just used the mounting bracket to secure the pump to the core. He is still using half of the reference shroud to cool the VRM, old-school style.
    I was wondering what it looked like with that car radiator in the loop. I love seeing this kind of full custom modding.
    I got a shipping notice in my e-mail around 3 hours after FedEx tracking said it left the airport. Signature is optional; you would have had to selected the option during checkout. I think it was an extra $3 USD.

    Question for you tech guru's, will the main computer below bottleneck this beautiful GPU, do I need to consider upgrading the whole system?

    Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 | Intel Core i7 4790K | 32GB Corsair DDR3-1600 Vengeance LP | EVGA 980ti Hybrid | 2x Samsung 850 Evo SSD 250GB | 3x WD 2TB Red | Corsair CX750M

    My company absolutely forbids it. In fact the sole time I tried it, the facilities staff ignored the package and it was stolen. So it depends if your company allows it or nor

    Same CPU and system as me, basically. You won't have a problem.

    I have a pair of 980Ti Hydrocopper cards that I got when they first released. The new Titan X looks tempting, but I'm not sure the upgrade price is worth it from my current setup. Seems like I'd only gain FPS in games that don't scale with SLI well. And of course consume a bit less juice at the wall.

    I'm moving up from dual 980ti's and I'd argue that it is well worth it. SLI is a stuttery awful mess with terrible minimum frame rates, extra input lag and high frame times that doesn't even work at all a quarter to a half of the time, forcing you to constantly edit SLI profiles every time you install a driver, etc. etc.

    There is more to gaming performance than average frame rate. I'd never go multi-gpu ever again, unless something significant changes.

    I've done crossfire and I've done SLI. SLI sucked less than Crossfire, but they both sucked pretty damned bad.

    That be tuff.. easy going from 980sli to 1080s was worth it huge for me,but ti's is ruff.

    Though going from 2 1080s to 2 titans would be awesome. Hehe

    I wonder how much of a delay there is going to be for the 1080ti a few weeks maybe or months.
    I wonder if they are saving chips up for the 1080ti knowing people will just hold out for that instead of the 1070 1080 and Titan.

    Never had a problem with sli with stuttering and never messed nor how to do any of that sli profile crappie.

    4 way 480-580gtx, yeah I had stuttering probs though it was butter smooth with just 2 cards.

    980s and now the 1080s are butter smooth and problem free for me.

    I've been running at 3440x1440 @60Hz since I got this setup. I've never really noticed the SLI stutter problem in most games. I've seen it once or twice, but it wasn't something that happened all the time, and not enough to bother me. While I agree a single-card solution is probably smoother, I don't think SLI is as much of as mess as advertised. Maybe it's different if you're running >60hz...

    At 4K, going from 980Ti overclocked to 1520 MHz to a 1080 Overclocked at 2100 MHz gained me a ~13% performance boost. Going from a 1080 overclocked to 2100 MHz to a Titan-XP overclocked to 2100 MHz has given me a ~40% performance increase. ;)

    I'd guess not until AMD's Vega comes out, and then there might be a 1080ti, if and only if it can match or beat the 1080.

    Man there are supposed to be two Vega GPUs, one for GP104 and one for GP102.

    Nice. This is basically ~55% faster than an overclocked 980Ti. Ouch.

    Are those SLI or single GPU numbers?

    It probably depends on the title more than anything else.

    I don't play a ton of titles, but the ones I have enjoyed the most have all - without exception - had massive SLI problems, either having no profiles at all (Verdun) or claiming to have a profile but only loading one GPU unless tinkering with the SLI profiles and even the best result being a massive stutter fest with terrible minimum frame rates when you need them the most (Red Orchestra 2).

    This is at 4k60hz.

    That is some kind of performance improvement there. Very nice indeed.

    I'd imagine it is title dependent. I'm only able to play one or two nights a week, so I'm not that heavy of a gamer personally. But all the stuff I've played in the past year (Fallout 4, FarCry 3 & 4, Witcher 3, Just Cause 3, Shadow of Mordor, DOOM, and a few others) seem to work pretty well at 3440x1440 @ 60Hz. Even on the titles that don't support SLI properly. I think I'll stick with the 980Ti's for now, just based on all those numbers. I'd like to jump to single card, but I need a better reason than just a couple FPS or saving power. Maybe a Volta-Titan or Ti will be more appealing.

    What you should wonder is if there will even be a 1080ti.

    Just got mine. I cranked up the fan to 100% and was able to hit 2050 MHz stable on the core (+200). May be able to push it further but already really happy with that result.

    Time Spy bench (no idea why it didn't recognize the GPU...):

    I scored 9 083 in Time Spy

    This card is only using 203W in normal gaming with stock clocks. Just fucking wow.
    My 980Ti's are using 600W (Classifieds come OC). This is some incredible engineering.

    I'll get one by the end of the month.

    Weird actually, pretty sure other reviews showed it hovering at 250w?

    It peaks at 260. Normal gaming is lower:

    I know, just a different way of measuring it I guess. They also gave 211w average for 980 ti anyway. Apparently they were throttling quite a bit though. If you cool that thing better or OC it the power consumption is going to be a lot different.

    But yes fantastic perf/watt as expected, that's Pascal for you.

    This is the phase I am referring to. I measured that area from the stock Titan cooler and cut it on the hybrid cooler using a dremel with a metal cutting disc and a cone shaped grinding bit.

    Considering the negligible price difference between 1070 SLI and a Titan XP when waterblocked (~$100), I'm heavily leaning towards a TXP.

    Does anyone know how warranty claims tend to go on Nvidia-built cards? Do they void your warranty if you waterblock it?

    Bummer, even though I ordered mine early this morning and paid for overnight shipping, it looks like Monday for me. First world problem for sure, but makes me a sad panda :(

    S_T - FYI, they ship overnight via FedEx, so maybe we'll see it by Saturday at the latest since FedEx delivers on Saturday.

    Well, that settles it, if I'm gonna upgrade from my trusty 780Ti, I'm gonna go with the Titan. Now to play the waiting game until it reaches local stores...

    Same here. I have never had a bad experience with SLI and I've never learned how to edit an sli profile.

    Could someone who's taken theirs apart please let me know the precise dimensions on the GPU chip please? in mm?

    Thanks.

    I wanna know if it's possible to mod something together with what I have to hand, cheers. ;)

    Good news! I got a shipping notice about 1:00 AM that it had shipped and should be here by 8:00! Hopefully you will see something soon.

    No shipping notice for me yet, BUT I did check FedEx Delivery Manager this morning, and it finally says a shipping label has been created (by Digital River CS Shipping Dept in MN). Delivery is scheduled for Monday. :( I paid for "FedEx Priority Overnight", not FedEx 4 day.

    That sucks! But think of it this way.. a lot of people would love to have one and can't buy it.. the excitement only lasts till you get it.. now you'll be all excited for 4 more days!

    SysInfo hasn't been updated to recognize the 369.05 driver required for Pitan yet.

    I tried +200 with 100% fan last night and was crashing within 10 minutes of gameplay testing... I'll have to play around with it more, but it was stable at 1823 MHz during 30 minutes of playing RotTR after just increasing the power and temp targets to maximum. After making a slightly more aggressive fan curve it topped out at 72C running at 60% fan speed in my warm room. The fan is definitely much quieter than the Mitan, but I'm still going to be putting it under water.
