2b) see #1

I can max the power target in the modded BIOS as well if I up the memory to say plus 700 etc. no throttle.. I can't run the mem that fast for stability issues. As far as I know I am seeing the same thing with the modded bios every one else is seeing. I am not saying your hypothisis is wrong, but I am not seeing how my experience with the modded BIOS "proves" or disproves anything. I just do not see it adding up with what I am seeing in the stock BIOS ... So I throttle at 90% on stock bios but can go to 115% on the modded and not throttle (just crash if my clocks are to high).

I do get how the differences in the actual gk110 in each card does have an affect and that might be all this is, but again that does not explain why my cards are reporting its current draw incorectly where some one elses is not... I realize it might be drawing more of course.

I do think in essence your guesses are likely spot on in terms of the root cause of the throttling, I am just not clear on this "reporting bug" on some but not all cards. smile.gif

My GPU is absolutely caked in TIM. Typical bad factory application wasn't helping me out at all. Yours didn't look anything like mine. I have plenty of TIM spilling up over the support.

I dont even own a Titan, but isnt it posible to just increase default power limit with Kepler Bios Tweaker 1.25 to whatever you want ?
Who cares what reading nvidia drivers report ?
I mean, what exactly is the problem ???

You can, and then you're just limited by voltage, which is probably why people get crashes rather than throttling on the modded bioses. That's my guess anyway.

Which BIOS gives us 1.25v?

I am curious if my cards do well with that voltage, I am currently testing the 1.21v bios.

It is NOT good news. They're basically saying that the throttling is intended, but the power % is misreported. The power % is being reported lower than it really is. The throttling is working as intended.

In other words, if your GPU is now saying 90% and throttling - the 90% is misreported. The throttling is SUPPOSED to happen. Read the nvidia statement again.

Right, but the card won't throttle until it hits 106% if that's what you set it at. So if you only want less than 106% it won't throttle. I don't see the problem here. You can also flash a new bios with a higher percentage and it wont throttle until it hits that too. So it's good news.

Yeah exactly flashing the bios is solution.
Nvidia is saying lower values are beeing reported, so in your example of 106% it would throttle at 96% or something.
But it doesnt metter as you can increase limits as much as you want, so who cares if limit is for example 140% and it starts to throttle at 130%, when 130% is still more then enough smile.gif

edit: actually for #2, the % seems to vary with the middle power limit set in kepler bios tweaker (Min, Def, Max). But the example still holds true. Stock bios is set Min - 60% 150W, Def - 100% 250W, Max - 106% 265W.
People have been getting readings in the 110% while keeping the base 100% the same so Nvidia is either telling lies or not using their design as intended.
