SajinDefinitely remove the riser and retry.
deepseamk21I wanted to give an update because I'm a bit perplexed. I haven't had the opportunity to install a new riser yet, however I was playing with some settings in afterburner. Currently I have core voltage at 100%, power limit to 105%, core clock +100, and mem clock +500. I'm able to play several hours without a crash, though game just crashed again so I suppose I still can't consider that "stable". in HWinfo, the voltage maxes at 1.050v, GPU power maxes at 276.995W, core clock maxes at 2,055 mhz, and max temperature is 52C. To me, all of these numbers are well within the capability of the 2080 TI and nothing "dangerous". But what I don't understand, is that if I keep all settings BUT the power limit the same, and increase power limit to 130%, games crash immediately upon loading into the game. Wouldn't giving more power to the GPU allow for a more stable overlock as long as thermal limits aren't exceeded? Perhaps when I set the power limit that high it boosts beyond a stable core clock I'm guessing? I just feel quite unlucky if my 2080 ti can't even stay stable at 2,055 mhz. I fully understand that the overclock from EVGA gets me to 1650 mhz without changing anything and that the card further boosts itself higher than that when underload. What am I missing here? Did I pull the short straw and nothing is actually wrong, it's just that my card cannot handle it??
