How is Ebay dead? which ebay are you using? The blackmarket one? Ebay's full of independent sellers ESPECIALLY Titan wise, that's how I got my other 2 for less than a 780. The only business/resellers are the ones selling Titans for like 1k+ which will never sell and they'll just waste their money hosting it.

As far as the Paypal incident, that's outside of Ebay if it's directly between 2 people, the best you can do is open a claim and escalate it. Also this is why I ALWAYS purchase insurance w/ shipping because issues do happen.
Ebayyyyyyyyyyyyy


I personally think eBay/paypals fee structure is horrible for us consumers, buyers not so much, but I will rarely sell anything on eBay now. Craigslist and the forum are so much better due to no fees. Selling is also risky due to the buyers protections, it is easy to sell a perfect condition item and be scammed by a dishonest buyer who disputes it, and paypal will side with them in almost every case. Hence my preference to sell items in person on craigslist or via the forum where Rep matters.

Still ebay is a great place to buy Titans. I got my SLi Titans from the same seller. One was $600 with a XSPC waterblock, and the other was $500 and it was practically brand new in the box. Most Titans on eBay are rought $700ish, so mine were both exceptional deals.

Also, did you check performance with the CPU at stock? I have my 3770K at stock and I suspect 'only' 3.9GHz is not being able to keep the minimum FPS high enough.

Also, I know it probably varies from GPU to GPU, but is there a certain amount of voltage required to gain a certain amount of core clock when overclocking?

Do you think there might be something wrong with my system in some entirely different area than the GPU that is causing this problem? If so, what steps should I take to identify and get rid of the problems?

I apologize for asking so many questions. I hope that I'm not bothering you too much. Thanks a lot for your help! smile.gif
Fortunately it's winter now, and temps are very much in my favor. So I can afford to push a little further.

I have checked for throttling, and it is non-existent. I sat through a full run of Valley and kept my eyes pegged on the core clock and it sat tight at 1202MHz. and the temperature was below 80c at all times so I don't see any reason why it would throttle.

As for the performance gains with 1254MHz, maybe so, but I want to avail all the performance I possibly can.

And yes, I suspect that problem causing the low performance lies elsewhere as well. Do you have any suggestion on what I should check for problems?

Thank you very much for your help! smile.gif

Something is definitely wrong with your setup ahnafakeef. My GTX 780 got around 60fps in BF4 at 1440p, and my 780Ti got 70fps (at 1440). This was with everything "maxed" basically. I select the Ultra Preset and then dial back the MSAA from the defaul Ultra of 4x to a slightly easier 2x (can't even tell at 1440 anyway). Your Titan should be getting 60fps easy. I play mostly Team Death Match, so you may get less FPS on 64p conquest, but you shouldn't be in the 30s either.

If I were you, I would run stock clocks and see what you get with FRAPS. My SLi Titans get roughly 90-110fps in BF4 with the same settings as above. You shouldn't have trouble getting 60fps. Is your CPU downclocking? Something is definitely bottlenecking your rig. As others have stated, maybe your GPU is running at the lower 2d clocks (600mhz).

Let us know.

Please provide me with the following info so that I can test properly. Also, I'm only playing Campaign, no MP.
i) Does FOV settings affect Campaign mode?
ii) Other than Ultra, what were the Resolution Scale, FOV and AA set to when you got 60FPS with a 780? (So that I can try with the same settings)
iii) I checked with AB's OSD, and there was no downclocking of the GPU according to it. Do I still need to check with FRAPS?

Thank you very much! smile.gif

I will post back for you later today, my Titans are doing some folding right now and won't be done for a few hours. My settings look just like this photo, except AntiAliassing Deferred is 2x (NOT 4x). I am using the default for everything else. My resolution is 2560x1440.




If ABs OSD was giving you 20fps and says you were running 1000+ mhz then I would believe you are not downclocking and something else is wrong.

Please do. Thank you for the effort. I'll try out the settings and report back. smile.gif

And that is exactly what worries me. How do I solve a problem that I don't even know of? Anyways, I really hope that I can get this fixed soon.

Here is my watercooling plan? What do you Titan owners think?

I'm looking at the XSPC AX240 Kit for $250 here at FrozenCPU. I will put it at the top of my case.

EX280mm Rad at the front with 140mm fans in push pull. I have to cut corners somewhere, so for the meantime my fans will be 140mm Corsiar AF140s in push, and the stock Fractal 140mm fans in PULL. I know they are not the best fans, but I'll upgrade them later.

I already have 2 XSPC Titan Blocks, so I'm good there.

I'll need to remove the little HDD bracket that holds the HDD cage underneath the 5.25" bay, other than that, will I have any trouble with a 280mm RAD in the front?

Appreciate any and all feedback.

Thanks

Looking good brother. It looks similar to my current rig (see sig). I would put both rads getting fresh air into the case

Fired it up, overclocked and overvolted. The damn thing runs 1-3 C cooler than my other card which has Phobya HeGrease on the die and stock pads on the VRMs, could these pads really be that good to directly compete with top tier TIM? A more detailed experiment would be neat to see. Either way, I am impressed, and I have such an aversion to thermal pads of the past.

thermal pads were common place for that use a few years ago.

Hahahaha a very apt name indeed. Thank you for the reply!

Interesting. It does not really have a SLI profile yet, just using the Arma2 and Arma3 SLI profile for now.

Never get mad or upset with you guys tongue.gif You all have been extremely helpful and cannot thank you all enough. I changed drivers yesterday, made sure SLI was enabled, redone the LLC mod and AB settings as well as used Nvidia Inspector to force a SLI profile for the game. The graphics engine is far from complete and optimized, I was more concerned that I had skipped a step with the volt mod or overclock with the card.

Thank you all, again I really appreciate it.

Cheers

It tells you to put them on the main chokes and VRMS, but then only on the smaller VRMs and not the chokes next to them.

I took my second titan's block off and thermal padded it just in case but the other card is now hopefully working its way back to Asus....

Also - sounds so similar, I had a cracked waterblock too!

Isnt it funny, originally I did put thermal pads on there, put them all together, then noticed that the instructions did NOT say anything about putting pads on those, so I took them apart and removed them! When I changed the blocks about a month ago, I did not put pads on there either.

Now you have me worried redface.gif

I have been overclocking my cards to 1206 core and 6400 mem at 1.212+ volts when playing games only.

Will have to pull the blocks off and redo. Will get some FujiPoly ultra again.

Love the idea of using the thermal pad for the GPU core, but even at 0.5mm I would be worried that it was too thick to install with a block that was designed to use a thin coating of TIM and therefore possible cracking the core. Might give it a go though thumb.gif

looks like it was just an 850W PSU under the G2 line for eVGA...sucks ... (not the PSU just the fact it wasn't the 1500W Jacob said was coming )

Nice mouse though, sucks it doesn't have additional buttons.
