  1. the customer service EVGA provides is worth the extra you spend imo id gladly spend 100$ extra for EVGA over the rest. one of the only companies that allow you to take there card apart without voiding warranty
  2. i actually like the EVGA style cards better and am the opposite and think the strix is ugly lol
  3. I'd highly recommend EVGA
  4. yeah im not worried about the temp, and today it is pretty warm as it's 80 outside and was about 78f in my room. and believe it or not but ffxiv is what gets my card the hottest out of all my games so far
  5. i would so do that but even with this current fan curve temp climbs to 75c
  6. so ive been trying out different curves for my gpu and power fan curves to keep the noise down and temps under 80 and been wondering if im missing something these are my current settings i am using any input would be appreciated
  7. so i currently have 2 8 gb sticks of 3200mhz corsair Vegance red LED ram and was wondering if i can just buy another 16gb of the same make/model to make 32 gb and work nicely with each other, mainly just doing it for looks but yeah
  8. id recommend FTW3 just for the warrany alone tbh and from the reviews and comparisons ive seen the FTW3 seems to be the best out of the box. well as long as you dont mention overclocking any brand will allow it.
  9. the 1987 mhz is what i did. the card gets up to 1890 by itself with gpu boost. i just keep it at stock to keep temps even lower and the extra fps i gain doesnt really make a difference in the games i play. i just highly recommend EVGA as with their customer service they allow you to overclock and even change the cooler etc and they dont void your warranty
  10. no the SC2 does not have a indicator like that, but the fans do stop at idle as long as temps are below a certian point i think its 40 or 50c. though the EVGA ICX cards do have more thermal sensors allowing you to monitor it more, and the fans move independently of each other which is nice. also they both have 3 lights that change color letting you know at a glance if there too hot and you can change the color of them too, and the SC2 is also fully RGB, though the SC2 doesnt have a LED on the backplate like the FTW3. The SC2 and Ftw3 are both 2 slot cards which will make them easier to Sli with if you ever go that route. as you have seen in reviews they're overengineered with thermal pads everywhere. my SC2 stays at 1890 mhz stock at around 70c tops, with overclock it stays around 1987 mhz at around 73c tops with fans around 60% or so and i have to really pay attention if i want to hear the fans so there not really noticable.
  11. no my SC2 has no coil whine and i think the FTW3s fans are either the same size or slightly smaller, the secound bios allows you to up the power target even higher. and power limit does help a bit but Pascal is still limited imo it doesnt really mater what AIB you get as long as it runs cool most seem to cap around 2050mhz at most some higher if you get a golden chip but everything still revolves around the silicon lottery and voltages doesnt seem to push the overclock that much farther as all the AIB cards are within 5 fps of each other. though id highly recommend EVGA for there customer support as its one of the best. this time around i would just pick a card you are happy with the aesthetics with and it cools effectively enough for what you as gpu boost 3.0 boosts higher the lower the temp. also to note EVGA should be releasing the EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid soon
  12. i have the EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 and its fairly quiet as you can keep the 2nd fan off until the VRMS get to about 70c or so and i have noticed no sagging at all and temps stay below 75c even while overclocking and my fan never goes above 60%. the FTW3 only has a slight clock speed difference and with the limitations of pascal voltage or higher power doesnt really make a difference. id even say save some money and just grab the SC2, only real benefit the FTW3 has over the SC2 is slightly better thermals only like 2-3c difference and slightly lower noise and a 2nd bios
  14. is it safe to unplug and plug in a led strip that is connected by molex from a pc that is currently powered on?
  15. no i have not, its just why would they make one specifically for a card when one they already have works?
