HARDWARE INSTALLATION
03
Before You Begin
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is a PCI Express 3.0 ×16 graphics card.
Your computer may already have a graphics card installed in the PCI Express
slot. If so, you will need to remove that graphics card and replace it with the
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
If you do not have a graphics card, this means that your motherboard has onboard graphics (there is a graphics chip installed on your motherboard or
integrated in the motherboard chipset). If this is the case, there is no action that
needs to be taken before installing your new graphics card.
Installing the GeForce Graphics Card
Because there are so many different computer systems on the market, the
procedure to install the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card can vary from system
to system. Use the following instructions as a guideline and consult the
documentation for your computer system for any further information on your
individual system.
Note: It is important that all power to the computer be disconnected before you install
the graphics card.
Discharge your body’s static electricity by touching a grounded surface before
touching the graphics card. A grounded surface is the computer chassis, or some
other surface you know to be grounded.
Use the following procedure to install the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card into
your computer system.
1
Turn off your computer and monitor and disconnect the power cord.
Depending on your computer system, you may need to disconnect the cable
going to the back of your system. Mark the cables so you can make sure you
reconnect them properly.
2
Open your computer by removing the cover/side panel. Refer to your
computer documentation from the original manufacturer for assistance.
3
Remove any existing graphics card (if there is one). Save hardware (such as
screws and brackets) to use when installing the NVIDIA graphics card.

4
ATTENTION: If your system has been running for a while prior to opening the panels,
it is very important that you wait until the graphics card in your system has cooled
before taking the card out of the system. Graphics cards get very hot when they have
been operating for any length of time.
Remove two adjacent slot covers if you do not have a graphics card installed.
Remove two adjacent slot covers that
corresponds to the PCI-Express slot you
are installing the GeForce GTX graphics
card in.
Note: The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card is double-wide and will require removing two
slot covers.
5
Plug the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card into the Primary PCI Express x16
slot on your motherboard. This is often the slot closest to the CPU but may be
the second or third slot. Look for the slot labeled ×16. It will likely be the only
PCI Express slot with a retention lever on the end of the slot or the one
closest to the CPU
Install your first GeForce GTX 1080
graphics card into the Primary PCI
Express x16 slot.
Note: It is recommended that you install the graphics card into the primary PCI Express
x16 slot. If you install the graphics card into the secondary slot, your system may not
recognize the graphics card and there will be nothing displayed on the monitor.
Also note that on some motherboard SBIOS, the physical location of the primary slot can be
configured when there are more than one PCI Express x16 slots.
9
HARDWARE INSTALLATION
If you are installing additional GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards for a 2-way
SLI configuration, continue with step 6. If you are only installing one GeForce
card, go on to step 7.
03
Note: All of the graphics cards in an SLI configuration must be identical. Therefore,
both cards in a 2-way SLI configuration must be GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards.
6
Install a second GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphic card (2-way SLI):
Install the second GeForce card into the outer most PCI Express x16 slot on
the motherboard.
Connect the two GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards together using the dual SLI
bridge connector that came with your SLI-ready motherboard.
2-way SLI configuration: Install
your second GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
graphics card into the outer PCI
Express x16 slot (the outer slot is
the one farthest away from the
CPU).
Connect the two cards together
using the dual SLI bridge
connector that came with your
SLI-ready motherboard.
Note: For 4 K and surround gaming performance, use the NVIDIA dual-link SLI
bridge available from http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/sli and select
NVIDIA SLI Bridge. There are three sizes available depending on which slot you
choose to put the second card.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION

7
Connect a 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors from the power supply to the
power connectors on the top edge of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
Note that the connector and socket on the graphics card have a unique shape
and connect one way only.
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card
requires one 6-pin and one 8-pin
PCI Express power plugs from the
system power supply.
Reinstall the cover on your computer and reconnect any cables that you
removed earlier in the installation.
