  1. I wonder how much of a temperature difference their will be compared to the conventional variants.
  2. I know multiple people with that card who have never had an issue with it, all of EVGAs products are generally solid they did have a slip up in the initial launch of the 10xx series but, can't think of another time they've messed up
  3. I mean they have different pcb designs and coolers (hince the custom) So they have better power delivery than a stock Nvidia board but, silicon quality is the primary deciding factor in what a gpu will hit similar to a cpu and motherboard.
  4. Yes Vsync caps the frame rate so when it's off, the gpu has to render more frames (thus more stress on the card)
  5. I mean just about every custom 1080ti will hit around the same speeds overclocked as it's really down to silicon lottery the only deciding factor is cooling (so watercooled or a beefy cooler) Otherwise the kingpin cards are pre binned so they will overclock the best but, they're pricey and good luck finding any.
  6. Actually with the amount of items sold with feedback (most feedback is copy paste as people are lazy) I'd say your fine not to mention amount of time on ebay. Usually the fake ones have only buyer feedback as they just buy a bunch of 1 dollar items from china were the sellers have automated feedback to buyers.
  7. Don't bother, more than likely all it will do is waste your time for nothing.
  8. Try using different cables/ports on the monitor/pc first
  9. It shouldn't thermal throttle or anything but, it's going bump up temps of whole system (since it's on the intake) and will run louder/hotter. I'd say run it till you can swap them with ML fans or something along those lines.
  10. Those hexagon blocks looks really sick! Don't think I've ever seen one in a build before, very cool looking!
  11. I mean the issue is those kind of rads increase the overall size due to 240mm being already used for the radiator fins alone then using space for the ports on each side opposed to condensing to one side and the other empty. The only thing you could really do is either do a single 120mm rad or just use a normal 240.
  12. I mean is their a particular reason you need xflo opposed to a standard rad?
  13. They're optimized more for airflow opposed to static pressure. Radiators tend to favor fans with higher static pressure as they need push the air through the fins of a rad. However, unless your cpu is overclocked you shouldn't notice to much of a temp jump though it will cause your pc to run hotter over using SP fans
  14. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9F94T42627&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-_-DIY+Cooling-_-9SIA9F94T42627&gclid=CjwKCAjw3qDeBRBkEiwAsqeO7htgdgfJLC7b3FZzWmu8wn-LsLJTdVQ5XHKoBC6HHUexEbVUfrrw7xoCe8gQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds This?
  15. For sure buy the gpu used no point in buying a new gpu with used prices being so good
