    Glad you got your temps down. Enjoy ROTTR. It's a great game.
    Yes, it's three fans and one of the AIB designs where Tom's Hardware/Gamers Nexus/Guru3D seemed fine with VRM temps.

    Although my game play doesn't show it this is the second time through ROTTR. Couldn't remember at first what I was supposed to do with the barrels.

    I have no unfinished games and don't see anything out there "newish" that much interests me. Pretty sad state for a gamer with a new 1080TI. I might try WD2 again next. My 1080 couldn't really handle HFTS shadows that well at only 1080P. Now that I have a 1080TI GFE seems to think I can handle those shadows, but even more handle them at DSR 4K. Are they kidding? BTW I don't like DSR much. I don't see much difference in the looks/graphics and it drops FPS big time.

    Yeah, I'm not really a fan of DSR either. I feel like where I'm at now, 1440p144, is just about the sweet spot for me in terms of both quality and performance.

    I just restarted Dishonored, as I never finished it before and I just picked up Dishonored 2 on sale for half off. Also still need to finish WD2 and Fallout 4. Still plan on picking up GRAW at some point as well. I need to hurry, too, because as soon as AC: Origins comes out, I'll likely drop whatever I'm currently playing to play that.

    That looks to be a cool game

    It does. I've completed every AC game aside from 1 and 3, and Egypt looks like a really great place for some assassin activities. Hopefully Ubi taking a year off between series entries will have it running smoothly at launch.

    I can't run anything in DSR but it was interesting to mess with. I think the concept is very interesting, but I don't understand it fully. ;-;

    Same here. Mostly I just noticed the massive drop in FPS.

    So I fired up WD2. 1080P Ultra with HFTS shadows. Took a drive across the SF bridge. So far experiencing no stutters whatsoever. FPS drops sometimes to the 40's but not the 20's as before.

    Look at the OSD numbers. GPU 98% sure but CPU goes to the 90's as well and RAM is 8.7GB used. With games like this, my hardware isn't overkill for 1080P.

    PS: Did you see me blow by that police car? The joys of gaming - didn't get stopped.

    That was quite the nice, leisurely drive @specialkone

    WD2 is definitely a game meant to take advantage of higher end hardware. Congrats on joining us in the 1080 Ti club.

    Thanks, Blackrose. Ya, big bikes in California. Guess you could live that dream if you wished. I did have a bike when I was much younger. My GF at the time said "you have a choice. Buy the bike and you lose me". I bought the bike, took a course and convinced her to take a ride. After that, she loved it. Man did she look good on the back of that beast. Never could convince her to drive it, though.
