MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio & GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio Overclocking

Since the card is clocked at reference specifications, there's a lot of room for it to be overclocked. I pushed the core to +175 MHz (RTX 2080 Ti) and +170 MHz (RTX 2080 Ti) beyond its overclock profile and +1050 MHz on the memory.

I had the power and temp target slider maxed out in EVGA Precision X1 so that meant that the GPU was under no restrictions or blocks when it came to overclocking. The clocks were stable after testing for an hour under stress load.
