I am now officially an owner of a working 690 gtx. Purchased one couple of months ago for acustom rig, and just finished the build very late. Then i realized card was not working properly. It is a asus 690 gtx with a xspc watercooler and a custom loop.
Thanks to a very nice user from hardwareluxx he got it working. Seems the problem was that it had the uefi bios with 2 different bioses on it. Now he got it working with standard bios from evga....
As of now, i would like to get out everything i can from this card by overclocking it. With afterburner, i could get 1228 stable with no voltage mods whatsoever.
Now since i havent been into gaming for many years, i really am a little bit out of ideas on where to start... Have played a bit with keplertweaker and flashing but for now, i am stuck with max voltage of 1.175
Can anyone give me advice or maybe make a custom bios for me? This friend of mine who fixed it told me to ask if anyone could check the bios since he didnt exactly figure out what was the problem. I COULD NOT Flash skyn3ts custom bios files on it because of an invalid board id...even with override. One of my cards has sp8, the other sp16(same board,not 2 690gtx).
I have modded my bios to 1.21V 175 power limit and getting stable results at 1202 mhz and 3499mhz for memory...
If i go beyond 1202 mhz it will not actually raise my core clock (at least thats wat afterburner osd shows).
Why is that?Edited by philsrb - 1/27/14 at 9:15am
