    I may have just retired from running 3DMark. I haven't tried the Vcore adjustment yet but like I said I get that message at 1.25 at stock or 1.37 when overclocked. Assuming that is a fix, not going to play with vcore every time just to run Time Spy or Firestrike.
    Benchmarks can be a pain. Wait out another update and maybe it will run for you

    4.4 at 1.220 + 0.040 offset for 1.260.
    4.6 at 1.280 + 0.060 offset for 1.340
    4.7 at 1.320 + 0.060 offset for 1.380
    4.8 at 1.360 + 0.080 offset for 1.440 too hot! I hate corsair fans, still looking for better.
    Thanks, fellow gamer. U R the best!

    Sometimes it runs and sometimes not. In my lifetime I have had GF's and acquaintances who were that moody. Retired from running them as well.

    Hi worf. Unless I missed a post, did Zotac ever get back to you on VRM/Vram heat?

    No and yes. I had to send them another email to get a reply.

    Original:

    "Hello Zotac Support,In regards to the following article: (http://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews...extreme-review) I wish to have your expert analysis of what has been found within the above linked article. I am now very concerned about this heat issue and claimed poor thermal design on a top of the range graphics card which I have spent over £800 to buy. If you have a solution that can be supplied for home install to rectify this serious issue, please give details an d if not may a RMA be in order.

    I would really appreciate a response to this matter at your earliest convenience

    The reply:

    Dear Andrew,

    Had you accidentally send emails to our US counterpart? I reviewed and found a handful and none of the replies were automated.
    For overclocking you may want to use some sort of water-cooling which can be purchased in the aftermarket. As this will void warranty, in the event od a claim just replace the original cooler and this will reinstate your warranty.

    Kindest regards,
    Eurotech Team
    Not much use at all. Their are no after market coolers for the 1080 Ti Amp Extreme that I can find.

    Oh, my R5 1600x is doing just fine. Just needs a decent MB and RAM and it's flying time. At 4GHz easily beats 7700 at multitasking and is neck to neck at single thread even when 7700 is heavily OCed. R7 should run rampant at serious SW.
    Whatever you do, think only about X models, so much easier to set up to run full tilt. Only thing that's holding down Ryzen is immature BIOS most MBs have so OC is not very easy but that's improving every day. Of course, top tier MBs get problems saved first but it's trickling down the line.
    I see you have somewhat similar system I just upgraded from. I upgraded from Ga 990FXA-UD5 MB and FX 6350 at 4.8GHz and this Ryzen is real revelation. It's probably twice as fast.
    Thanks for the reply! I'm looking at 1600X upgrade kits.

    Have you tried fixed RPM or a custom curve based on H110 temp or CPU package where it's flat until temps are significantly higher?

    At fixed 1300RPM CPU temp is in the low 40's or less in gaming and never above low 50's in benchmarks when CPU is at stock. When flat lining a curve at 1300RPM and not increasing curve until temps are significant I hardly hear those cooler fans.
    I run a Corsair H115i, with two Noctua 140mm fans (NF-A14 PWM) running off the pump. Using Corsair Link, I run them in balanced mode (the Noctua fans run around 850ish idle when not gaming).

    I also run two case fans, one rear Corsair ML 140 Pro fan, and one front 230mm stock case fan (Cooler Master HAX F). I've got these fans running off my motherboard's fan headers. For these, I've setup individual power curves as my Gigabyte Z270 Gaming 8 board allows this for each header.

    Here I've go the Corsair fan tamed to 1000 RPM, until the case hits 70C, (which it wont), and my front Cooler Master fan at 400 until the case hit's 55C. Since I don't OC these work very well for me, and keeps the fans nice and quiet, even when gaming. The only fans I hear ramp up are the GPU fans when gaming.

    Anyway I too like to keep things quiet since I've got a nice audiophile system hooked to my PC - I run a Teac USB DAC, which pushes my Audioengine A5+ powered speakers it's sub.

    Except for gaming, my system is very quiet, you don't even hear it when powered on. Even my PS fan doesn't run until needed. Same with the GPU fans. Heck, I've even dumped all mechanical drives for SSD's. Yeah, this is an extremely quiet system
