Might sound like a strange question but can we actually undervolt the card?

Does presicion give the option to set negative voltage offset?

(pretty sure the min value i could set it was 0mv last time i checked, can't check it right now, i am not home)

You can downvolt to the level it would normally idle at but that will never keep the core stable at normal clocks under load.
I also don't see why one would undervolt a 1K card as you could just buy a gtx680 and get less power consumption with undervolted/underclocked titan performance.

For starters i am talking about only under full load. Optimization is the word and it has nothing to do with the actual cost of a card, at least not in my book. wink.gif

My card boosts at 1058Mhz by default (talking about max boost) and normally runs at 1.15V. I'd be very happy if i would be able to check if i can reduce the voltage a bit (again, under full load) in order to stop throttle because of the tdp limit (106% set in my case).

I am very interested in experimenting with lower freqs and voltage just to see at which values my card will stop exceeding the 106% power limit.

PS: no i don't care about power consumption and i would doubt if a GTX680 could stand side by side say with a Titan at 980Mhz @1.13V (random numbers) while the Titan wouldn't exceed the 106% power limit and therfore it wouldn't lower any further the freq (again, hypothetical situation)

Just got my Titan yesterday. Playing around and this is what I got for 3DMARK 11 score after refreshing bios:

What did the card core clock boost to?

I'm not too worried though, the PC only ever sleeps and it boots pretty quick from cold on an SSD anyway. I'm not sure how much Windows Fast boot would actually benefit me

I should have said that with some of the beta bioses I have had to disable fast boot options to get the bios to retain settings. However fast boot on the official release F5 bios works fine. FWIW I prefer the beta bios without fast boot, I frankly don't see much difference and Intel Rapid Start works fine. However I have had no crashes so the UEFI bios on the card seems to work fine, I get the settings issue with or without CSM enabled. . I have a GA77X-UP7 Board.

Hi Guys,

I finally fixed it. Love the BIOS from the EVGA Master @ http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=1891166

I used BIOS 3, not too much Volt 1.187, Very stable @1.2Ghz. Benchmark Firestorm Below Results.

Cool, I suspected it was something with the Z68 boards, but I wanted to make sure it was not an issue with my system.
Thank you for testing.

People will tell you that converting MBR to GPT is impossible, but I did it not 3 days ago. Follow these directions.

http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/222853-convert-drive-gpt-guild-without-losing-data.html (this tool worked for me while the tool in the article above did not)

I'm pretty sure I installed in on a gpt partition, but I'll verify when I get home.

then just flash RR09SS.rom and be done with it. that bios sets the max limit to 100% = 300W, the card's spec max power usage.
