My first card from Nvidia directly was faulty. I wanted to cry! Especially considering how hard they are to get. I could not believe my luck. It would crash with weird colors etc and over heat. It was hitting 90c! So, I sent it back for a full refund. They just received it today. In the mean time while it was being sent out. I was able to score another new FE. This time its EVGA. From my favorite brand! Card works great and boost to 1911MHz out of the box doing nothing. I also installed a new EVGA SuperNOVA 650w psu. The performance increase from my 4GB EVGA GTX 960 FTW compared to this 1080. OMG! Incredible and I love it so much.
Totally worth the money. Next will be a case swap. Waiting for the EVGA DG-85 case to hit. Then a new 1440p monitor. I also had to remove my dvd/cd player for the bigger psu. Which is fine since I never use the thing any ways and just takes up space. Rest of the specs. i7 4790K liquid cooled, 16gb 1600 ram, 256gb Sammy ssd, 2TB Seagte drive and Intel 7260 wireless AC. Model HP Envy Phoenix 810-430qe. Have had the machine now for a year and 2 months. Barf I know its a HP. But, its been a great system so far.
