post #8471 of 28136
Hi all, first time poster long time reader. Just wanting to see if i could get a quick answer in regard to the fix for titans and the throttling issue.
I have a pair of EVGA SC titans turning up this week and want to clarify that the fix is to re flash the bios to disable the Boost side of the current bios? If so any particular bios i should be looking into? Thanks for any responses in advance as i didn't read all 800+ pages but picked up bits and pieces from each post. Thanks again.

Edit: Going to run both cards on water so heat shouldn't be an issue with overclocks.

Hi, thanks for the reply. What is different between the bios on here and the one at the TI forums?

Nanneon didn't charge money for his BIOS. He did it because he's a good bloke. Lol.

But seriously. Nanneon left GPU boost in, he just edited out the restraints that caused throttling and TI's BIOS completely took GPU boost out and edited the power limit to 150% or something.

Neither is better than the other I don't think. Comes down to personal preference. Try them both, decide which you like best and let us know how high you can get them.

You are welcome. Good luck and let us know how you go with it all. Just remember to test for stability with FarCry 3!

Just wondering how many Tech Infernos bioses are out there and what the differences are?

It seems there are 3 so far.

2 are identical except from the starting 3d clocks, one is based on the SC so the 3d clock starts from 928Mhz, the other is based on the plain Titan bios,i guess starting 3d clock is 876Mhz.

I have only tried (and actually using at the time being) the SC version, starting voltage is 1.137V.

The 3rd is supposed to be the "plain" bios but with lower starting voltage, 1.05V according to svl7, havent't tried it myself.

That's the differences between these 3.

For the record, i have spent about 16 hours (2 long sessions) the last two days testing the SC version with my card, running stability tests and i have a ton of graphs that capture it's behavior, being an ex-Fermi user it's like OC my old GTX580 (skipped the 6xx series myself so i never got used to the GPU Boost bahavior/limitations).

No fixed voltage, which is something i need since i don't OC all the time or the same way each time, my OC depends on why i do it and what i want to achieve (for instance no, i don't need to OC at all when running F1 2012 at 1080p with everything maxed up so no need for me to run the card at anything above 1.137V. But Crysis 3, Farcry 3 etc maxed it's another story). I have made and use profiles with different freqs/voltages according to my needs.

Max TDP is 350W (=100%), my personal record while testing these two days was max 96% which translates to 336W (first time i saw readings on the kill-o-watt that reminded me my OCed GTX580), no throttling whatsoever in any case. I am on air and exceeded the infamous 80C threshold, but still, no throttling.

Max voltage is 1.212V, max fan setting 100%.

The only "issue" i see is that the auto-fan is not as agressive as in stock bios (the author knows about this and will take care of it). I guess most of the users don't care about auto-fan because they either make a custom fan curve or run the fan at a fixed speed or they water cool their babies...

Also AB beta 9 cannot set/change/adjust the voltage or so it seems (actually i hope someone else can confirm this), that's a bummer for me since it could store voltage in the profiles. So i use Precision (works fine) but the Precision itself doesn't store the voltage in the profiles (setting th voltage myself manually to the wanted value depending on the profile). Nvidia inspector works fine but the interface is a no-no to me so didn't bothered with it.

That's all i can think of for now...

I 'd hate to get involed in a family fight but its been 4weeks and 15 posts still not allowed to dl stufff from there.
Its not that i need the bios but i wanted to try it,but i wont pay or bother with that bs anymore at all

some head action on air acXIII cooling runs easy like bf3



post #8479 of 28136
oh yeah maybe 3 and a half weeks


Yawn.... lets just move on can we


If you need a bios to,stop throttle,thats has stock clocks and volts + add some to the power limits its been out for weeks.
No voltage adjustment thuo

http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=71489


That bios is good for the 24/7 guys and sub zero guys

edit
PL is up to 300%

2d .887
lp 3d 1.018v
3d 1.238v
clocks

Z68 isn't supposed to be but I think it depends on the Gen version of the board. I remember my P8P67 WS board showed up as PCIe 3.0 x16 for my GTX 690 SLI when it released also and was most definiatly not running at that speed.

Maybe this will clear things up and help you determine if it's actually working at those speeds. Either way I would still switch to a Z77 board for native PCIe 3.0 if PCIe 3.0 is what you're after.

Ah I see in terms of using SLI it could be the fact that the gen3 mobo don`t do PCI-E 3.0 because of the splitter and only do 3.0 on a single slot.
