    core voltage is 1.168 in the bios on auto so I don't think it's that. The cpu is still running slightly higher than I'd like but hasn't topped 70 (max I've seen is like 67 or something, and that's a...

    I guess I'll give it a week, and if I don't see better temps I may completely clean and reapply. I've got paste left.

    X method. I'm not expecting miracles either, but having my temperatures INCREASE (by 5-10C) using better paste is concerning.

    keystroke boot?

    I have a Maximus IX Hero, and in the bios, I can't find any options to enable/disable boot by keystroke (or any sort of external device management). Does my motherboard support this feature?

    I was mainly concerned with the gpu, with the 1080ti being a new model and all. I guess I'll wait until I have all of my hardware, and then if I have any problems, I'll address them then.
