    Just received my Aorus Gamebox 2080Ti eGPU.

    I am recording some videos on pulling it right now!

    here’s a quick unboxing.

    PART 1, opening the box packaging!






    PART 2! In the rig!!





    PART 3! Testing the GPU inside a desktop! THE BEST PART!




    PART 4! Bios flashing!




    PART 5 SHUNT MOD SOLDERING! 450 watts!!!





    First Time spy run! Shes a beast now! Shunt modded! And bios flash! Cracked 17K graphics like it was nothing! These are daily stable numbers, so this performance really does well in games now. The card has more left in it for sure.

    Why not use the inbuilt screen shot functionality in the OS instead for bothering with a phone?

    I like using my phone. I used my phone to record video, upload, and post everything on here. So it’s just a habit.

    This card hold 2,115Mhz in games very nicely! With a 2080Ti, that is just blazing power!

    Playing RDR2 I am pulling around 402-410 watts steady just from the graphics card.

    AWESOME!!!

    I must have had stuff going in the background I suppose. 9,200-9,230 is my usual physics score. Not enough to affect my overall though. The CPU is scaling properly for sure. (4,350 R20) / (1,790 in R15) (22,800 Firestrike Physics). And runs CRAZY cool.



    But check this out, I am actually CPU limited in firestrike. I couldn't believe it when I saw my GPU utilization dropping from 89-92% and averaging around 93-95%. So, I am literally stuck at SUB 41,000 graphics score. And anymore GPU overclock will result in the exact same graphics score every single time. Because GPU utilization just goes down the faster the GPU is lol.

    It will affect your overall score. You will gain +600 points:D

    Then increase Cpu overclock:)

    Or get an 8700K.

    Strange, yeah my physics score is 1,100 points higher, compared to that Firestrike score with 42,000 graphics score. And my combined is over 600 points higher too. I am seeing the GPU usage dropping. I’m gonna tinker with my cpu OC some more. I’ll do some 5.5 runs.

    Here is my firestrike run. I get roughly the same or higher physics score at 5.3Ghz or 5.4ghz.

    Getting 40,600 or 42,000 in firestrike graphics is literally margin of error almost, at about 3% difference. These CPU's are bottlenecked in firestrike. He is running faster memory than me. So, maybe that's what helped him!

    That above 42K graphics score is running 9% faster system ram than me too. So, maybe thats what is helping him? I dunno.

    Lower cpu score and combined due Cpu running 5GHz. Still not the Cpu that stop the Gpu from reach above 42K in graphics sub tests.

    Yep, I am at a GPU limit. My card is a NON-A variant so with my 1.05v voltage limited 310 watt bios and both 8pins modified for lower power sensing, my GPU can pull a absolute maximum of 434 watts. I cannot get my GPU clock above 2,145MHZ because of this. Not even for a second. Due to power limitation and voltage limitations. It will however lock that 2,145Mhz in even the most demanding loads “Forever until is died years later lol”

    I was using a Palit 2080Ti NON A bios. So with my fans and pump at 100% in MSI AB. They are really in spinning around 40%.

    So, I went back to the 300 watt Gigabyte bios and now I am getting 100% pump and fan speeds. The card runs another 5C-6C cooler. But, I’ve lost 10 watts of juice. And it is much louder from pump vibrations and (2) screaming 120mm fans.

    Still good enough.

    This GPU easily performs on par with a 2080Ti Kingpin on its default 240mm liquid cooling setup. Most can sustain 2,130-2,175

    Still, extremely impressive to see a card perform this good.

    My “A” bin 2080Ti will be here Friday. These cards have bios that allow 1.091 volts and even higher and up to 570 watts of power draw with power sensing mod. So getting up to 2.2Ghz and maybe even 2.25Ghz is very possible with custom loop or maybe a 240mm rad.

    As for CPU bottle neck. GPU usage still drops off around 5-11% in Firestrike. Which doesn’t happen if the card is running stock around 1,800Mhz.
