After some time I'm again Folding for a bit. I don't know how it will continue though, as it may become somewhat constant...
I bought myself a second EVGA Geforce 1080 FE on which I put an EK waterblock. I figured that for 4k this upgrade would make more sense than switching to a 1080 ti, especially because the 1080 FE I already had was such a sweet overclocker and ran 2100 MHz stable 24/7.
Now I thought I'd stresstest the second one too. I overclocked both to 2072 MHz, which I figured was plenty if I needed the extra boost at some point. The "stresstest" in this case is [email protected]
which is now running back home 24/7 for a few days, while I had to go on a trip...
Unfortunately the gaming experience kinda sucks with 2x 1080. The games I really wanted the extra power for, do not seem to support SLI, so I can't say I really benefit from the second card.
I definitely won't return it, because it is kinda sweet having that extra power if needed, and I bet at some point I'll buy a game and be thrilled that I do have the second card.
After the stresstest concludes on Wednesday, I kinda have a couple of options. I am considering folding on that second 1080 whenever my computer is turned on. Whether this makes sense approaching the summer time, I don't know.
Either way this stresstest will be pretty cool, because I do hope to see over 1M points today, tomorrow and on Tuesday. [email protected]
Control actually predicted 1.5M PPD which I kinda doubt, but if it is true, I could add 5M this week.
