@Mumak, what do you need to know / see to be able to determine if we can see the VRM temps of the 970 Gigabyte G1 cards? I'd love to be able to see them and am wondering if it's possible if we can get the right information..
Just for the last 2 posts..
1) Why are you entertaining Adaptive? There are plenty of posts and I still see it coming up everyday. Your board, set to Manual and use C6/C7 to get nice low voltage when idling.
2) Why are you disabling C6/C7. Those are the ones you want enabled so you get a nice low voltage when idling.
Can someone confirm this is the right block for the Giga G1 Gaming?
I don't REALLY want blocks for these but the bloody summer is too hot already.
Just for comparison.1392Mhz stock everything but raise the volts via AB by +19 then it bumps to 1405Mhz (this is in fact a +25 rise but it kicks in at +19). If I then raise clocks and use something like Firestrike Ultra as an example, it will downclock by 13Mhz during test 1 as it drops those volts for some reason. To remove that "problem", I have to raise volts via AB to +45 and now it's steady and won't change.This GPU won't go above 1.2430v which is voltage after +19,...
If you want the best and RAID0 .. then 256GB 850 Pro will perform very nicely. That's obviously not the most cost-effective, you could always entertain something like a pair of MX100.
RAID0 doesn't boost QD1 4K reads which are very important but games do use more than just that.
