I have an Overlord Tempest 27" X270OC monitor that used to work with my 1070 with a dvi-d cable. I just got my 1080ti in the mail, then put it in my rig, and my monitor won't work. I got my son's Acer, and plugged it in to the ti and it works(the video card and the monitor). So here's my question, is there a reason why it wouldn't work with my Overlord monitor? I basically swapped monitors with my son's, and the Overlord works with his computer, and it was working before I swapped video cards, so it's not like the monitor is broken. I know that Overlord is out of business now, so I won't be getting any support from them. Any help from you guys would be much appreciated.

    So far all my Monitors with DVI-D Connectors work fine with my new GTX 1080Ti Graphics Cards.
    Is their a Firmware for your  Overlord Tempest 27" X270OC Monitor? Most likely not See Below.
     
     Overlord Computers -- Gone out of business?? or Overlord Computers -- Gone out of business??
     
    Before you changed cards did you remove the NVIDIA Drivers and Software restart and run DDU in Safe Mode to clean out the Drivers.
    If On Windows 10 make sure you network is OFF to stop Windows Updates from installing Drivers.

    Same thing happened to with my Qnix qx2710. I'm assuming these Korean panels exclusively runs on dual-link dvi. The included adapter is only a single-link dvi. My monitor wont even recognize that there is any input going in, even though the computer can see it.
     
    I just ended up ordering an Asus pg279q.

    Why on Earth would they not include a dual link dvi adapter with the ti? Nvidia. Buy a display port to dvi-d cable/adapter from Amazon.

    That's correct about the dual link. I didn't notice the adapter that came with it not being one. That stinks!!! I'm looking at adapters and they are NOT cheap.

    You will need an active cable/adapter, a good one, to be able to output 1440p. Don't even think of overclocking past 60hz.
    TBH I should've waited for the 1080ti SC black edition to be available for step-up or a version w/ DVI

    That's what I'm doing. I have an old Aw2310 only 120hz/1080p but it works great and I'm not planning on getting rid of it so I need that dvi-d! Obviously I'm not the only one with potential issues with older monitors.

    Yeah, I had no idea that my monitor wouldn't work with my new card. I knew there was no dvi port on the card, but they said they world provide a adapter, so I never gave it another thought. I trusted EVGA to send me an adapter that would work. I didn't think I would have to spend another $100+ to buy an adapter that would work. I'm very disappointed.

    That sucks regardless, I am just learning this also. I read in another thread that the adapter should work but only @ 60hz. 
    If you guys run across a "reasonably priced" adapter would you list it for other users. I didn't even think about this when I was checking out the FE ti's info. I have a 120hz monitor, waiting on my step-up card to ship out. The only reason I like the no DVI, is the single slot capability for water cooling. 
     
    Will your guy's monitors not run @ 60hz??

    As timmyboy04 stated, nvidia is at fault here. Evga and many other companies are putting dvi ports on their AIB cards, so you need to look at NVidia for the lack of support for a founders card. Evga, msi, asus, gigabyte.. none of them are allowed to change the NVidia reference design, so blaming them for what nvidia did is a moot point.

    My Qnix doesn't detect an input. It turns on for a second and goes back to sleep.

    This is the cheapest adapter that SHOULD solve your problems: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OQQ2HDC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
     
    HOWEVER... you may get added latency because of it.

    Thanks for looking, but I don't think it will be enough
     
    MOST VIDEO RESOLUTION SUPPORTED: Supports up to 1080p @ 60Hz, 3840x2160 @ 30Hz <- OUCH
     
    I haven't found an adapter that you won't lose your refresh rate. They've all said 60hz or 30. ****, I'm not ready to buy a new monitor. Now I'm using a  24" 1080p @ 60hz, that's no good for a card with such immense POWA!!!

    This adapter will let you do 2560x1600@60 or 1920x1080@120.

    WOW! almost $100 Bucks, I think I would just buy a new monitor from a company that is still in business.

    Yeah, I'm looking for 27" 2k @120+. There's ebay deals for Refurb Asus Rog for $630, freeship. The brand new ones are 799. Still though, I wanted to find one with my specs for $500 or under, I'm hoping there will be an end of the first quarter sale, which gives me like 10 days for a dream sale to happen, fingers crossed.

    I bought an Open-box Asus PG279Q from Newegg for $650. They also have refurbs for around the same price. My open box was almost new condition, definitely looked someone has turned it on and used it, but it was pristine. 
    I couldn't justify buying a $100 adapter and not even able to use my Qnix at 100hz

    This is ridiculous. I have 27" Asus monitor that has HDMI and Dual-Link DVI. So my options are spend hundreds on a new monitor or spend a hundred minimum for an active adapter -_-

    Just wait for the SC to come out through step-up. That's exactly what i'm doing since I don't want to drop $500+ on another 144hz monitor. I'm hoping EVGA will come through with the step up options before my time runs out in April.

    To be honest I am thrilled that DVI is gone.  

    Why? I could see if was VGA that was first introduced 1987 and can still be found on new pre-made computer which I do think is stupid. Digital Visual Interface is basically the same High-Definition Multimedia Interface and were designed only one year of each other. And what, you wish for everyone that still has this as the highest connection on their still functional monitor have to spend hundreds of dollars on a new. DisplayPort was only designed four years after HDMI but wasn't implemented until '08.

    Because every forum has a troll. There's absolutely nothing wrong with using DVI-D which is likely why EVGA decided to include it on every card they are going to make for the 1080TI after the FE.

    Yea - if you have the FE without a DVI-D output (and using the display port -> DVI adapter) - wont work with Korean dvi-d monitors. You'll need an *active* adapter - and they can get pricey, and may not hit 120hz. I had an Accell adapter and it only went up to 80hz (ish)
     
    Id give the monitor to you son and grab the Microboard [link=mailto:3440x1440@100hz]3440x1440@100hz[/link] to match with your 1080ti - at least thats my plan
     

    That or exchange your FE with an AIB with dvi-d outputs.

     Digital Visual Interface is basically the same High-Definition Multimedia Interface and were designed only one year of each other. 



    The problem is DVI has not kept up with the times. Dual link gets you a max 7.92 Gbps. HDMI 1.4 can do 10.2 Gbps and 2.0 can do 18 Gbps. DisplayPort 1.3 can do 32.4 Gbps. DVI is just plain outdated at this point and not to mention the connectors on HDMI/DP are miles better than DVI/VGA with the screws.
     
    I get his joy, DVI was never a very good standard and it's elimination makes single slot cards possible again. I won't miss it either.

    Great thread. I'm going to step up, I hope and the monitor I currently use is dvi will dvi restrict the bandwidth of the ti ?

    DVI will reduce the maximum resolution and refresh rates you can use compared to DP and HDMI. As far as your monitor, we don't know your model, but as long as your DVI input is compatible you should be able to drive your monitor at its maximum.

    EVGA  X99 FTWK / i7 6850K 4.5ghz 1.35v
    32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3200
