I've been trying to check ATX specification and it seems spec 2.2 calls for overcurrent protection to kick in if the load on a rail exceeds 240W. PSU manufacturers must have been building their units to exceed this spec to allow for graphics cards for a while now but we'll have to start looking at our individual PSU spec and 280 Ti variant spec very closely. I think we either need a new ATX spec or graphics card manufacturers need to think about signing up to the Paris Agreement.

Thanks for the update cyber!

i was wondering if you knew the procedure to changing my cooler master 1100 to single rail mode, like you advised.

seriously almost RMA’d this thing and went for a EVGA brand. 

Im going to postpone the return because of your post so thank you!



Not sure about the Cooler Master. On my Corsair AX1500i I connected a USB cable to the PSU and then used CorsairLink to disable OCP (over-current protection) on each cable which switches the mode. This seems like a risky change, so I'm not sure it's a great idea, but it got things working.

I don't know what's going on with this 2080 ti but my system reboots under any amount of GPU stress, I have a beast 1100W PSU... so im at a loss as to what the problem is... what a shame. Tonight im going to remove the overclock on my cpu if that could free up some power... however, 1100W should be enough for both...  What a bummer.


 I had crashes and lockups with my 2080 Ti too. There were two things I did that seemed to fix it. One, I downloaded the MSI Afterburner Beta and set a good custom fan profile (50% at 30C up to 100% at 70C) which stopped the overheating. Then following a Reddit thread, I switched my PSU into single rail mode. It seems that Corsair digital PSUs have some issue by default, but single rail mode helps. Not sure I totally understand the problem, but after I did these two things I stopped getting game crashing. However, Windows sleep in now unreliable and most of the time it does not wake up. I'm not sure if that is related to changed PSU settings, there was no problem previously with my GTX 1080 and same PSU.



How about performance in VR games, have you had time to test the 2080 Ti (SLI?) thoroughly? Would be great to read about your experiences, especially because I'm also using a 1080, thanks!

I’m not playing this game, I’m going to return this. Which 2080 ti is the best one on the market? 

I was was reading the nvidia forum and it’s a complete shit show, for this kind of money I want something solid. So does one brand stand above the rest?

This is probably King of the Hill:

Asus is known for the highest quality, like:

TechPowerUp has tested many different 2080 Ti cards, Asus Strix was the only card to receive a 95% score:

I would wait a little bit longer, most if not all cards are still based on the same reference design PCB layout from Nvidia, custom ones should drop soon ...

Is there a benefit with custom layouts? better performance or?

Usually, better thermals, as they can have proper custom made cooling, better grade components and better power delivery as they use their own PCB design, for example, the Kingpin series of cards have completely custom power delivery to squeeze out every bit of performance out.

Custom PCB design boards usually lead to better overclocking and stability in my experience.

Reference design boards are all almost identical in performance (providing the cooling is half decent for a sustained boost clock)
