Got my GPU yesterday, Asus GTX 1080 Turbo.

 

Rest of my setup Asus ROG Maximus X MB

Samsung 32" 1080p TV Refresh rate 60Hz

Dell 22" HD PC Monitor

 

SO, went into Bios, Set Graphics to the GPU, instead of Auto or UHD 630 IGPX

 

Installed Asus Software and nVidia Drivers/Software and what I see is boggling me. It looks like crap on both the TV and the Monitor (Which was my primary Display on my old computer and looked great)

I've played with TC settings, Driver Serttings, WIndows Color Calibration, etc and nothing is working. 

Why am I not seeing HD on either device??? 

 

Here are some pics

 

These are on the Samsung

Have you tried playing with the DPI scaling? If you haven't, I'd play with that and see if it helps your issue.

 

Open Display Settings (Windows), and play around the with "Scale and Layout" options. I'd start with 125-150%. (You can also do this in your Nvidia Control Panel)
There might also be an option in your Nvidia control panel that could be causing this- like an overscan option.

Also, having your refresh rate set at 60hz will be contributing to that blurry effect imo. Bump it up as high as it goes. :)
Nevermind on that. I see it's connected to your TV.

One more edit: Try playing with the cleartype settings too, if you haven't already.

If nothing else, it never hurts to ditch the ASUS software, uninstall the drivers using DDU- and grab the latest version from Nvidia, install those drivers and reboot.

Thanks. I turned Sharpness down, and turned Dynamic Contrast off, which helped a lot, plus there was a new Nvidia driver today that I installed and it looks much better. Still need to play with colors, digital brightness and gamma but it's WAY better than it was

So I've been tweaking the settings for the last day and it's looking pretty sharp now. I guess I just panicked expecting it to be amazing out of the box, but WTH, I moved to this beast from a GeForce 9800 lol. Like going to a Cadillac from a 73 Vega.

 

BTW, I just want to thank @TulsaGeoff who has been the main man throughout this entire Build process and @Fisticuffs for helping me out a lot on CFG settings, etc. You guys are amazing! I owe you a few good beers

Very good! Success is what I like hear.
I'm a little baffled that it didn't work "out of the box" (ootb). Normally at least better than what you posted. As long as it looks good with calibration though, all is good. :thumbsup

Some of these settings sound like they're on the monitor/television (sharpness and dynamic contrast), and others sound like they're in the control panel... but you should make a tutorial on calibrating an HDMI connected monitor/television for those who have that setup, it would be super helpful. :geek:

That's a great idea. I think I'll do that

okay i us a  1050 and i have my  quality setting like this this could be why your is so poor i always late it pick the  best  quality it's self games have  different types of quality and even  web bowers have the same 

 

 

P.S jacking your quality up like that can and will burn your video card out faster to that means it's running the best quality it can at all times so your using your GPU at all times

I changed mine to that after I got it to start looking better

I wouldn't worry about "burning up" your graphics card. Modern engineering and hardware has that taken care of.

 

First of all, there are usually multiple fans, with variable speeds, spread over a large heatsink. This makes overheating very hard to accomplish.
You'd need a counter-action to the fan's dissipation of heat. Either lots of dust built up, a poor thermal interface material, a fan controller failure on the GPU, or another fan (such as a power supply's) counteracting or restricting the air flow.

If the card does overheat, automatic thermal throttling will start, preventing permanent damage. You'd notice framerate drops, and "lag" well before permanent damage was caused. If throttling cannot prevent thermal-runaway, the graphics card will power down and restart or freeze your computer. Once again, you'd be well aware there was a thermal issue.

The only way a card can really fail based on heat is if the actual GPU chip itself is a "flip chip" design, somewhat similar to a ball-grid array internally. Basically the substrate itself has little "bumps" and "ridges" inside of it to different contacts. Those would warp and cause intermittent contact, causing graphics artifacts followed by complete failure. This design, while popular from 2008-2013, is no longer widely used. Therefore, over-voltage due to overclocking is the only "real" way to "burn-out" and destroy a GPU.

You're welcome dude. Glad you finally found that video card and have it setup nicely. I wouldn't worry about burning up the card in any way as long as you don't significantly increase the voltage through a bios modification as Xernicus elaborated on. The first thing that typically goes are the fans on the cooler which you can always replace. I would still play with the overclocks on the CPU and GPU. That german Maximus X Hero tutorial is good on yourtube. :D

i also agree .. your not gonna burn your card up with  quality settings.

 

i also think a 9800 card is little better than a 73 vega .hahahaha an i had a Cadillac it was big piece of shit!

 

any card i ever burned up was cuz fan failed not gpu. dont they all have a shut off threshold  nowadys ... mine will shut down at 80c but its older than a 73 vega i guess.lolthink mines a 70 vega.lol 8800gts.lol

 

 

and i once burnt a hole right threw a 462a socket cpu . from over clocking it .lol was trying to pull 3.0 ghz out as 2800amd single core .lolgot to 2.9 lol

yes they have them  now but still running your  card at full blast takes away from the  life  expectedly of the card i'm not saying the card will not last  a long time i'm just saying  it will last  longer if you  us it  as little as you need  you don't need a  video card to just  hope on the web and play around on sites you need the video card for  playing videos  and games not for ever little thing you do  that why it's  recommended to have your  screen hooked up to both your card and your pc if i'm not mistaken must  pc already have a build in video card that  is used when  playing must videos  and lot of games you don't need your big boy to you play  high end FPS games 

 

 

i just think it's wasted to run your card in to the grand before you even get your money worth out of it

2 things will destroy electrobics: temps and\or overvolting. If you keep them on recommended specs its all fine.

Heard nvidia doesnt throttle down with multimonitor setup, might wanna check if gpu\memory go Hz go down while idle.

So basically you deleted you colorprofile with new card? if calibrating on monitor the settings might stay..

modern graphic cards can easily see 80C or more in heavy gaming. they are built for it, but cooler is better. my goal is 60C maximum on air

Mine is running at 38C under while gaming :)
