980 TI's

I know a lot of people have upgraded to the 980 TI, and have either used Afterburner or have got the 330W Dell Power Supply. I wanted to ask you guys if you are using the Referenced Design Card, or a SC card, and exactly what cards will fit that would the be the best option. Thanks in advanced.

230W PSU has nothing to do with the SSD or other stuff as they get their poer from that 180 PSU.

I had only one crash with GTX980TI and 230W PSU during a highly intensive movie scene on dragon age inquisition maxed out.

Use 330w PSU and you`ll feel the difference, I ordered one too 🙂

What is the peak temp of your GPU without those fans?

Mine is 71 when I play those games you mentioned above with maxed out settings

I can keep anything below 70 degrees without putting the fans higher then 65, if I crank Battlefront of Battlefield 4 to like 150% upscale (fps still stays nearly 100) temps can rise to upper 70s.

well thats good. 70 has no bad effect on the GPU functionality.

Yeah I generally feel more comfortable keeping it in the 60s (C)

Place your rig below a window or near where fresh air can flow, open the window a litttttttle bit and you`ll see how that changes the whole story 🙂
