I would stand clear of using AI Suite for now there is an issue with AI Suite and the newer nvidia driver library and I'm not sure it's been resolved. I don't use it and do my overclocking manually in the bios. If you're new to the UEFI bios and overclocking I know it can look overwhelming but you can let most settings on auto and just play with the multiplier and the cpu core voltage, but before you overclock your cpu let's see if we can get your ram stable.
I'm anxious to know if it goes with up to 1.45v on the Dram voltage and up to 1.368v on the cpu system agent voltage, hopefully it won't need that much with the bump in the Dram voltage.
I'm looking forward to your update. 🙂
The cpu temperature controls how far you can overclock it so the better your cooling the further you can overclock it.
Nice rig !
I was also wondering if updating the bios might help with your ram stability, you could try that too.
Your temps are fine but with two 1080's gpu 1 will run hotter and your psu looks like it could partially starve gpu 2. For your particular case it would probably be good to liquid cool two 1080's and your cpu with....
Something like this?
And then of course EK's top radiator.
It performs just as well as these rads which a 360 rad can cool quad sli, so you should be fine cooling two 1080's and your cpu with one 360 rad.
Yeah keep it all EK I was using the koolance as an example.
All right bios is updated to 1401 which is the latest for your motherboard so good there.
The EVGA 1200w is more than enough power, I bet it runs nice and cool too.
I'd like to see the parts you pick out when it comes time to do it so yeah post them any time or send me a pm. I did liquid cooling too and this last time I went with Mayems ultra clear tubing and I haven't had any problems with it so far. The size of the fittings of course will determine the size of your tubing.
Thanks ! 🙂
According to the performance chart with the nemesis gtx a 360 rad can dissipate up to 1800w so how can you even be close to that when you only have a 1200w psu?
Here is the black ice nemesis 360 gtr which is even a little better than the gtx with a 1950w rating, the gtx and gtr can handle cooling everything.

Are you able to get your ram to 3200MHz, give us an update what you've tried.
