GTX 1080 Ti Overclock Test

With the upcoming launch of the GTX 1080 Ti, a video uploaded to YouTube yesterday runs through a GTX 1080 Ti overclock test with an Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140.

At stock specs, the overclocking potential is limited by the thermal solution, and those who have picked up this new card, will naturally not want to damage it. This is where aftermarket coolers come into play, and sometimes it’s difficult to find a suitable and good performing solution, especially if the card is new and there are very few products around that actually fit it yet.

The Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140 is a cooler that fits multiple cards, there are lots of different fittings for lots of different cards, and even if your card is not supported, there are generic kits you can pick up that you can use. Basically, it’s one of few coolers that will fit practically any card.

The cooler features liquid cooling for the GPU core with a 140mm radiator, a backplate that features a heatsink for cooling the RAM and a heatsink for the VRM with an 80mm fan. Overall they have every base covered, and should allow for some great overclocking as all the key components are very well covered.

The video goes to show the various increment increases to the GPU and uses The Witcher 3 to perform the test. The cooler actually performs very well, keeping the card below 50°C even when overclocked to 2000/6000.

While the cooler allows the overclock comfortably, and could probably be pushed further, it’s worth pointing out that even with such a powerful card, and with such a big overclock, it struggles to stay over 60fps. It would be interesting to see the full system specs, and if the CPU was creating a bottleneck.

Here is the video, if you can’t speak German, you can always try to make sense of the subtitles, good luck!

Have you pre-ordered a 1080 Ti?  Will you be overclocking it and would you consider this cooler?

    Never had any issues with any of their products, no matter if gpu or cpu coolers/case/case fans.
    can recommend anything without problems, as long as its verified that it fits the application.

    support is nice too, shipped me replacement part (cpu cooler bracket) for free,
    since i was stupid enough to throw away the intel on, since i was never gonna run a blue chip.. 😉

    I would prefer getting the 120 solution with a matching vrm block (chipset),
    and not the generic one (PITA to mount), and use another 120mm AIO for the cpu (like corsairs upgraded H60; thick hoses), as this will give more options where the rads can be mounted (location/type of case).
    It will also improve temps a lot, not just because of the better “cooling”,
    but because there is no heat (cpu/gpu) being dumped inside the case, and both rads get cold air.

    major reason for me, why im not going back to an air cooler
