  1. Update: The first MSI RTX 2080 i bought at best buy was also defective straight out of the box. Both my monitors said no signal. I returned it and had them confirm that it was indeed defective and couldn't get it to work. Go figure 3 gpus in a row!! my luck with computer parts are trash! Thankfully they had one more left in stock so I snagged it and installed it in my pc and managed to get both monitors up and running. I opened up my MSI OSD and launched Bo4 and after one match my temps didn't go past 60°c! So buyers beware of the GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 8G Geforce RTX 2080. Thank you to everyone who told me it was more than likely another dud.
  2. I think my cooling is fine because my other card was pretty cool in the same exact set up. And ive heard from multiple people that gigabyte is notorious for sending broken refurbished cards, even without my side panel on the card was getting up to 77-78°. I've requested a full refund and bought an MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDRR6 256-bit VR Ready Graphics Card (RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO). I'll keep everyone posted to see if the problem is still there.
  3. my gpu in bo4 is 80-90%. Sometimes I noticed it matching my cpu utilization at 60% sometimes 70%
  4. Thanks for your reply, so I should download the gigabyte software and hit the reset button or whatever it is that uses default settings and see what happens?
  5. Hello, I recently had to RMA a gigabyte RTX 2080 due to a bad fan after 4 months of use. My new one came in 2 days ago and I used DDU to uninstall all old drivers and install the recent one. After everything was cleaned and installed I hopped into a match of Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 and about after 2 matches my fps spiked down to 40-50 fps for about 20 seconds before returning to my fps limit of 144. I also noticed my gpu temps were 84°C after only 10 minutes of playing. I set a custom fan curve in MSI afterburner and managed to maintain a somewhat stable 74-76° but the problem still persists. A few people said high gpu temps wouldn't cause fps spikes but considering I didn't have this problem with my old RTX 2080 I don't know what else it could be. I tested apex legends as well and while the fps didn't drop to the extreme like bo4 it had little skips. Bo4 is way more graphically demanding than apex though on maxed out settings.
