  1. Actually.. I tried running Rise of the Tomb Raider with EVERYTHING maxed INCLUDING AAx8 at 1440P/144 Hz and I couldn't hold 60 FPS with 2000 Mhz+ GTX 1080 Ti. I was around 45-55ish in the beginning stages of the game. Once I dropped the AA down to FXAA, I think my FPS was around 100+. How important is AA to you?
  2. Bought MSI GTX 1080 TI Seahawk X. I can maintain 100+ core / 500+ memory (2038/12000) during Heaven 4.0 with 51C Max at 36% fan speed. It drops down to 2012 at the lowest during benchmarking. I might have to unlock the voltage to increase the core since anything more than 100 crashes. Not the best but I'm still happy as it can maintain 2000+ during gaming.
  3. Hey guys, I recently bought a MSI GTX 1080 TI Seahawk X edition and had a question on what the orientation of the tube should be. I installed the radiator as the exhaust to the back of the case with the tube on top of the radiator. Maybe it's not a problem for any case but I see some people placing the tube on top of the radiator or bottom of the radiator. Is it a preference thing or am I doing it wrong? Off topic, the card is great! Max temperature is 47C with the fan speed at 40%. I can maintain 2000+ MHz during benchmarks! Currently at 100 core / 300 memory
  4. I disagree. Many games still have SLI issues from day 1. I JUST went from GTX 980 SLI to GTX 1080 TI Seahawk X to avoid all the headaches I went through with SLI problems. I had issues with Fallout 4, Doom, Watch Dog 2, Dishonor 2, etc. Some were fix in the later patches or even had to use a custom setting that the community makes. I understand they get FIXED eventually but what's the point of having SLI if you can't take the advantage of it. I'm much happier with one card set up. And will probably keep it this way for a while. At least until developers stop releasing their ga
  5. Depends on how much you value the graphic setting vs FPS. I'm currently running GTX 980 in SLI at 1440P / 144 Hz and it cannot keep up with most of the games I play. Not to mention, many game titles don't carry SLI profile until 2-3 patch later. Therefore, I literally JUST placed my pre-order on EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3. I don't NEED 144Hz to be my MINIMUM frame, as long as I can get 80-100 FPS average, I'm a happy camper. Good luck!
  6. Did he announce if 1080Ti is going to be Nvidia exclusive only? I'm hoping to pick up a FTW version from EVGA!
  7. $799 since they dropped $100 on GTX 1080.
  8. So I've been thinking of having an alternative PC speakers on top of my headset (G933/Hyperx) and I came down to these two alternatives. The reason I do not want to spend much more is because I use my headset most of the time. So currently I found Logitech Z623 to be at $99. From what I have read, it has a good bass but lacks a bit in the sound department. Unfortunately, I missed the sale on the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 by few days and the prices jumped back up to $150 ($140 from Groupon). I know Klipsch is an audio company so perhaps it has a superior audio system. I'm not too
  9. It really depends on your monitor. If you have 144 hz monitor, take the advantage and get a 2nd card. If you have a 60 hz monitor, single GTX 980 should be sufficient with AA at minimum for recent games. I'm running GTX 980 in SLI with XB270HU and I barely pull 60-90 frames for Rise of the Tomb Raider with everything maxed out with AA off.
  10. I also received one of my GTX 980 ACX 2.0 SC version. Card looked pretty new but some defects are there. The E from EVGA doesn't light up and does not boost to 1367 MHz (it boosted to about 1310 MHz. Yes I tested the card by itself.) as advertised. I also tried refunding it but they said 15% charge will be applied so I decided to RMA. It's in testing process so hopefully it gets back to me by next week.
  11. He wants an i5 or I would've done the same. He said under $1000 but I kept it around $900 due to 9% tax.
  12. Hey LLT, I'm helping out a friend that wants a new gaming desktop. He actually ordered a desktop from IBUYPOWER for $800 USD which had GT 720 as the GPU with an i5 4460. I immediately told him to return the desktop and I'll help him build a brand new one. Here is what I have so far.

  13. XB270HU. No dead pixel and minimal backlight bleed. $900 when it came out.
  14. Hey guys, I just received my K70 RGB Brown Switches yesterday and I had some time to play around with it. I noticed that my Left Shift key seems a bit weaker and wobbly compared to all other switches. All other switches seem solid when pressed and makes a "thud" noise when clicked but Left Shift key makes a spring-y noise and seems not as solid as other keys. I tried switching the Left Shift key and the Right Shift Key (Right Shift Key is solid and good!), and the Right Shift Key becomes wobbly and weak. So I assume that it's not the key cap but rather the 2 support of the MX switches are
  15. You see more negative reviews than positive reviews obviously since more consumers have tendencies to leave negative remarks when they do get a bad unit. I bought mine as soon as it came out from Newegg. Aside from small backlight bleed in the bottom right corner, I have no complaints so far. If I was in your situation, I would wait a little longer to test the upcoming ASUS product. More choices never hurts!
