  1. I used to have one these. It was crazy hot. What sort of case are you thinking?
  2. I've always loved small form factor cases over bling and led. The build below is my dream build. Having discovered £1 listings on ebay and getting some really good prices for my old hardware I set about building this mini beast. It had to be small, quiet and pack a punch. Fitting the dual AIO's in was a challenge but once the orientation is right it goes in nicely. The CPU AIO radiator is actually sitting over the PSU and the GPU radiator sits over the CPU block. I found this to be the best orientation to avoid kinks. I only use the PC for gaming and Revit which is primarily single threaded so figured a cooler 9700k would be a better fit for the small form factor than a furnace 9900k. Temps 50C/60c gaming CPU GPU RTX games 62c with normal games running around 50c. All in all I'm over the moon with it. Just tempted to swap out to the better noctua fans on the rads. I'll post another pic in its second habitat. The living room tonight. OLED 4k/60hz HDR single player games are a sight to behold.

  3. My Gigabyte 2080ti gaming OC was reaching 86C and running well below 2000mhz prior to me fitting a Kraken G2 and that with with a noisy fan curve. Now the PC is much much quieter, runs 2020mhz undervolted and under 60c. Its not just 2% it's more than that. It's the whole picture. But different people want/value different things. I see you run a Corsair AIO on your CPU. What is your opposition to fitting an AIO on your GPU?
  4. It's not about life though is it. The 20 series cards love to boost higher when the core is less than 45C. To do that on air would be very noisy!
  5. Agree with the above. The cheapest solution is to buy a higher rez monitor if you don't want to upgrade your CPU.
  6. Your clocks are just via Nvidia GPU boost?
  7. I agree. But I like benchmarking when I get new hardware it's half the fun. I then settle on a sensible compromise between voltage, heat and performance.
  8. Good numbers Good numbers! I had a 2080 Super and it ran considerably cooler than the 2080Ti. What cooling solution are you using?
  9. Yes totally agree other than on GPU OCing. IMO it depends on the card and resolution you play at as to whether its worth it. I play at 4k/60 or 3440x1440/100 and with the help of DLSS I can pretty much max the games out so no massive need to overclock too much. I did need a little extra clock speed to get Metro where I needed though.
  10. I think that's what I was getting at. People are saying it but are they actually achieving it in a heavy load game? If so i'd love some tips. Chip by chip difference isn't coming into play as yet because i'm hitting the power limit and not getting any crashes. So people that are getting 2100mhz in metro exodus must be under a larger radiator or custom loop i'm guessing?
  11. I'm seeing across the internet people claiming to run their 2080Ti's are 2100mhz+ on the core?? How and is this locked or for the first 10 seconds of a benchmark? I've got a water cooled Gigabyte 2080Ti Gaming OC (A Chip) mounted under Kraken G12 Corsair H50 AIO with Noctua 1700rpm 120mm fan on the rad, Noctua 92mm mounted to the G12 and copper heat sinks on the RAM and VRMS. This is installed in a SFF V6 Ncase M1 with another 120mm intake fan mounted below the card. I have flashed the card with a KFA 130% power limit BIOS. When gaming in metro exodus or benching time spy ultra I am hitting the power limit and card can run at 2140mhz for a short while then settles around 2070mhz with temps around 72C. Thats at 4k/60 RTX on. I tried undervolting the card and it now runs at 1920mhz and 62C during metro or 52C on PUBG (3440x1400/100hz). I'll be keeping this setting as i've maxed out the refresh rate of the respective monitors. More for my personal interest or future performance headroom but how are people hitting 2100mhz+ on air without hitting a voltage limit? What am I doing wrong? As a side note.. wow DLSS 2.0 on 'Deliver us the Moon' is a game changer! Decent performance bump for no discernable drop in image quality at 4K and lovely lovely reflections Please please Deep Sliver go back and patch metro Exodus especially now its on steam!
  12. Thanks for all the replies everyone. Good point regarding the heat over time through the cable. I'll go with one for now so I can fit it all in and am awaiting a response to an email regarding custom ones. I'm hoping 25/30cm should be long enough without too much left over. Unless anyone has seen any already made up for sale in the UK that aren't £20 a go!
  13. Corsair SF750 is the best SFX PSU you can get but I have no idea if it can keep up with a full size one. The Gigabyte Gaming OC which is on the way apparently has LED's by the Pcie connectors which will flash if the the supply is unstable so I guess I could try both.
  14. I've got quite a small SFX case (Ncase M1) and an SF750 psu. It's got x2 double 6+2 8Pin connections. Am I best connecting two individual cables from the Psu to a 2080ti or just use one of the double connectors? Space is tight so if two individual cables are better I'll order some shorter custom ones.
  15. Yes within 5% I believe. I wonder if a golden 2080 OC vs a golden 2080 Super OC would be within 5% of each other?
  16. Yes its the new Samsung DDR6. That's an average overclock people are getting more. I'd love to see what a golden chip could do on a 130% power limit BIOS. I
  17. Yes I think out the box 5% probably is a bit of a disappointment but it doesn't cost any more. However once overclocked it certainly becomes are more attractive option. I'm only just reading about power limits now and if there was a BIOS with a higher limit i'm sure I could have gone further with the 2080 Super. It wasn't that it was crashing above 2050mhz it just wouldn't hold clocks sustained over that amount. So who knows, perhaps I could have closed the gap some more. RIP little 2080 Super, sorry I fried you.
  18. Well picked up.. Compare just the GPU score and my point still stands.
  19. On its release the 2080 Super got a real panning from the youtube community saying it was pointless etc. I managed to get my hands on one at a great price (£480) and set about overclocking it. The GDDR6 Samsung Memory on these things is unreal. I was able to achieve a stable overclock of 9000Mhz (18Ghz double data rate) on the RAM which will close the gap on the larger memory bus of the 2080Ti. The card I had wasn't a great overclocker and only achieved 2050Mhz locked using a Kraken G12 AIO with temps around 50C. Performance was fantastic and I was very happy with the card. Unfortunately due to an error all of my own creation the card is now dead. I replaced the 2080 Super with a 2080Ti which arrived yesterday. Unfortunately the Ebay listing was wrong and I got a Gigabyte Windforce none A chip vs the Gaming OC A Chip I had paid for so it's going back today. However this didn't stop me running a few Time Spy Extreme benchmarks. The overclocked 2080 Super is within 502 graphics score points of a stock 2080 Ti. Obviously overclocked the difference will be much bigger. However an impressive result nevertheless for a significantly cheaper product.

  20. So.. i've been bitten by the bug recently and have owned the following over the last 2 months: Sold my 1070 for £240 on ebay and bought a 2070 Super for £480 including COD/MW (which I was going to purchase anyway) so call it £450. The 2070 was a good match to my 3440x1440 100hz monitor. However I was playing Metro Exodus at the time and didn't rate the RTX performance or the impact DLSS had on image quality. It also was good but not great at 4k on my living room OLED but not able to hold 60fps at the settings i'd be happy with. Wasn't a great chip ether so was never truly happy with it. A 2080 Super appeared on Facebook marketplace for £480 so I jumped at that and sold the 2070 Super for £440 so a £40 upgrade. Now the 2080 Super overclocks very well on the memory. At this point I also fitted a Kraken G12 and was running 2050mhz on the core. This was killing everything I played at 4k/60 bar metro but I was really happy with it.. Until one day the fan adaptor from GPU fan header to standard fan header somehome broke and caused one of my fans to spin up to 100%. Stupidly during my investigations I unplugged the fan from the header and then reattached it.. while the PC was turned on.. Idiot.. fried my 2080 Super... Gutted. I had to claim on the house insurance and they've just paid out £630. I've just won a Gigabyte 2080 Ti Gaming OC for £710 which is arriving tomorrow so £80 upgrade. I'll report back how it performs in 4K because TBH the 2080 Super overclocked was ample. I just thought i'd make the most of a bad situation. I've probably not answered your question there but despite the bad youtube videos if you can source a 2080 Super for a good price and overclock it you'll be very happy at 4k/60
  21. 1) I'll give that a go 2) I've already OC'd the GPU a fair bit was really impressed with the 2080 Super's samsung memory 9000mhz vs 7800mhz on the 2070 Super. I know the 2080 has been panned in the reviews but most the reviews i've seen have been stock. For the same price as the 2070 Super and overclocked its a great card. 3) Fresh drivers using DDU software 4) Fresh Windows 10 UEFI Install on my new M.2 drive and the 2070 results which were the same were on my old legacy SSD install. Its gone from 0.9 Shader rate 60fps at 3440x1440 on Metro Exodus at the settings I run (inc RTX) to being able to run at 1.0 Sharder rate at over 60FPS. I can finally enjoy Metro the way I wanted!
  22. I'm currently in the process of building a new PC. I've swapped various parts in and out as i've seen deals on FB or Ebay, maybe I have a tech addiction I don't know.. Anyways I've gone from a not great silicone lottery 8700k @ 5.0Ghz to an 'ok' 9700k @ 5.1Ghz I've also gone from a 2070 Super which I got new for £480 with a game I was going to purchase anyway to a new (without box) 2080 Super for £480 which I thought was a pretty good deal. In addition i'm also running 3200 LPX Vengeance at 3750Mhz OC and a Mini-ITX Z370 MSI pro Carbon Mobo + 1TB Saberant M.2 SSD. I'm seeing some strange 3Dmark results mainly with my combined score varying massibly. Clocks and temps have remained pretty much the same. Please see below for some examples: 9700k - 2080 Super: Compare - https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/21209161/fs/21209358 59 vs 53 FPS combined same clocks on card and CPU 9700 - 2070 Super: Compare - https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/21097497/fs/21097901# 58 vs 49 FPS combined What could be causing the large fluctuation in FPS on the combined score? This is usually the test which throws the numbers out.
