    Overclocking Help on Gigabyte 2070

    As far as OCing goes just because it works in one game doesn't mean it will work in another at the same clocks. You need to find a stable OC using programs like Unigine Heaven or Valley, then run Superposition. Also run 3D Mark Fire Strike and Time Spy. Then start testing the games, if it crashes lower the clocks and try again. This will give you a good idea of how to do it.

    2080 Ti Aorus - weird fan noise like vacuum

    What Model exactly? AORUS 2080Ti doesn't mean shit. There are 4 different models.

    2080 Ti Aorus - weird fan noise like vacuum

    You are getting 88C temps? What card is that exactly? Mine never gets above the mid 60's even OCed to the MAX and stressing it out on Superposition. In FS is stays in the 50's, even OCed to the MAX.

    Artifacts on brand new 2080ti Strix

    I would wait to replace the GPU. Personally I would buy a new PSU and send the old one to Corsair. If they send you a new one or reburb etc you can use that one as a spare. Not sure how Corsair works that or how fast they are.

    I would just replace it and be done with it. Then send the old one to Corsair and have them look at it. With as many problems you have had I wouldn't risk it running the PSU. Error on the side of caution always.

    That's a good one. Although with the other problems it is possible that the PSU could be having issues. If you have been losing that much hardware I think the PSU is suspect.

    What is the PSU exactly?
  8. I have a pile of PSU's too, some are like 20+ years old and LOUD, really LOUD, like hear them 2 rooms over LOUD. And some newer ones like the Seasonic X-650, G-550, M12ii 650 and 620, EVGA G2 750. Some old ones also that I need to dump (P3 and P4 days) along with the M12ii units as they are retired now and a bunch of other old stuff that I need to get rid of.
  9. Yeah, those CX's are loud. The RMX is MUCH quieter.
  10. Primes loud? I have never even heard either of mine and I run quiet systems, they have 135mm fans. Have to put your ear right next to the case to hear anything. In gaming I wouldn't hear anything above the CPU and GPU fans.
  11. You will be fine, you won't have to worry about it for a VERY LONG TIME.
  12. Exactly, those are the best of the best, buy and forget about it for a very long time.
  13. You do actually have it sorted, the Primes are excellent. Or pick something from the top 2 tiers on the tier list.

    2080 or 1080 Ti?

    What RTX 2080 are you getting for $600? Have to be careful what you are buying.

    2080 and a 550w PSU

    Yeah I know. Much better than the old one. The only thing I disagree with is the gaming system recommendations of Tier B. Budget units and gaming machines are not normally a good mix, especially with the high end GPU's. Should really be Tier A and above really. (Ideally) I won't recommend anything below Tier A personally, no way.
