  1. Hi there! I just recently bought an EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC GAMING (11G-P4-2382-KR) and would like an opinion on if I should flash the Galax 380w BIOS to it. Side note: research led me to this site actually via this thread: https://www.overclockersclub.com/guides/how_to_flash_rtx_bios/ First, through a little bit of research I believe the XC GAMING edition is an "A" chip. I guess I'll find out when it gets here tomorrow for sure, but in the event it is and this is possible I have a couple questions. First, I am not going to upgrade the cooler at all - leaving it stock air. Any concerns there yet? Second, I realize this voids my warranty. I've tried to get the most out of my EVGA cards over the years (580, 680, 780ti, 980ti and now this card) and I have never had problems with overheating or a card dying or anything - but I've never flashed a card to a different cards' BIOS before. I've also read that this is one of the single best things you can do and there's virtually no risk. Is this true? I'm planning on keeping this card for a long time as I don't play that many cutting edge games, so I just want to set it at the most I can get out of it and forget about it. Current specs, if that makes a difference: 7700k @ 5ghz Maximus HERO IX Z270 chipset 32GB RAM @ 3200mhz 980ti SLI at a mild overclock (+170 mhz core, +300 mhz memory) EVGA platinum rated 1000w PSU Samsung 950 Pro SSD 500 GB Dell U3011 (2560x1600 @ 60hz) I'll be happy to answer any other questions. Looking forward to joining the single GPU club again!
