Consider getting one with a hybrid cooler or installing one. Not sure what you plan to use it for, high end graphics apps, gaming or Cuda/OpenCL apps, but I installed hybrid coolers on a couple EVGA 1080s and can run them wide open on any Boinc project and temps go no higher than 50sC. Don't have to monitor temps at all really. And it's quiet.

Off-topic: Crypto-mining is a process I do not understand. I will have to so some research on that sometime down the road.

Here are 2 videos about bitcoins explaining it in 2 different ways:

No gaming for me! CUDA, for use with this project.

By hybrid, you mean water-cooling. I have one on my i7 CPU, and it does make a difference. I would be hesitant about violating a warranty at the beginning.

I have my funds now, so it is a matter of pick-and-choose. Personally, I hate that part.

The hybrid cooled Nvidia GPUs use an AIO liquid cooler for the GPU die but the cover has a blower to cool the rest of the card. I run my 1080 overclocked at as high a utilization rate I can tweak and temp never goes over 60C and it's pretty quiet. With the stock founders ed blower cooler it would be running at 90+% and noisey as you know what. Evga is the only card I know of with a hybrid kit you can install on one of their GPUs. The hybrid kits are getting rare though. If I had the funds to buy a new one, I'd consider springing for a new Hybrid GTX 1080 Ti. Of course the GTX 1100 (Turing) series GPUs are supposed to be released in June/July. Either snatch one of those or wait for the used Pascal GPUs to hit Ebay then. The Voltas should be released then also and they are made for what you want to use it for. They have DP 50% of SP and a lot more memory bandwidth but they will be pricey.

Ordered.

I ordered the one in my OP plus an extended warranty. An additional 12 USD for next day, so I went for that as well, primarily so I would know when to be here.

It may not be for others out there; This is a significant investment for me.

It was significant to me (as in, 'probably shouldn't have') to buy a GTX 1060 before the prices shot up.

Default Anybody compiled CUDALucas for 1080 Ti?

Hello!

Have anybody compiled CUDALucas for 1080 Ti on Linux? Could you show your Makefile?

I was able to compile and run mfaktc, and it works great, but not any LL or PRP test programs that would work on my GPU...

Same here. Back in November, I could have gotten the one I ordered today for 180 USD less. I hesitated because I figured the prices would stay fairly stable. Was I ever wrong!

My 1080 arrived today. Installing the card was easy. Getting the drivers installed was Murphy's Law gone wild. Running the setup from the root folder on the CD took me to what turned out to be a driver for Windows 7. Naturally, it failed, twice, before I determined what the problem was.

Browsing the disc, I found a Windows 10 64-bit driver. This one appeared to install properly. Upon restarting, the desktop only showed the recycle bin with the bright blue window wallpaper. The mouse pointer was not visible.The file explorer indicated that everything I had installed on the drive was still there.

To keep this short, I wiped the HD and restored an Acronis image from April 3. The correct driver installed properly. Windows 10 must have seen this as a major hardware change. I had to re-enter the product key from the original v1507 DVD

mfaktc: I ran the standard test and everything came up zero's, as it should. I picked a composite from the results page just to do a test. Below is a sample.

CUDALucas
: Again, I picked a composite from the recently-cleared page. It was in the low 80M range. Four days and two hours was the estimate.

I had my gadget plugged into the power source. At idle, and minus the monitor, the system was idling at 56W. The GPU core was at 30°C. Under a load, the GPU ranged from 67°C to 70°C The power consumption, minus the idle value, was 210W. The GPU-Z sensor capture below would, on occasion, indicate an over 100% TDP.

The absolute best part is: I cannot hear the fans.

Sorry, I have run only mfaktc.
