    Strix 1080 temps

    Hi!

    My Strix 1080 non OC hits around 68-71C @100% load no matter what the clock is set to. It boosts well over 2Ghz and still same temperatures, however I put fans to 70% as I noticed the "factory fan curve" is a bit "low" to keep card around 70C. I also moved the CPU radiator from the front as intake to the top as exhaust and that resulted in 7-10C lower temperature on the 1080 under load but 3-6C higher temps on my CPU but still under 60C @4,5Ghz (6700K).

    To keep highest boost clock you need to keep the Strix 1080 under 60C, next intervall seems to be @70C when it drops some Mhz and another intervall close to 80C.

    I experimented a bit to see what gives best temps, ofc that is 100% on all case fans and card fans but that is very loud. 70% fan speed on my Strix 1080 is max I use and I cant hear the card when headset is on. I also bumped up the speed on my Noctua 140mm intake fans instead of raising the fan speed on the Strix further (Strix fans sound a lot more than my Noctua 2000rpm PPC fans) and that got temps down further.

    Conclusion: I keep my Strix at factory clocks since it doesnt improve gameplay significantly and that gives the card a boost over 1800Mhz. When I say "doesnt improve gameplay significantly" that means I couldnt notice any difference unless I looked at graphs. All games I play run over or around 100fps @1440p ultra settings anyways so why draw more power and stress the card? If you game @4K then a 5-7fps difference could be huge.

    Hope my rambling helped any1 (I also hope France wins tonight ^^)

    Your ambient temperature as well as airflow inside the case also helps to lower operating temperature.

    Calvin,
    It sounds like you found your sweet spot between noise and temperature, enjoy your new card
