-gtx 780 Zotac amp : min fps : 38.9 Asus gtx 780 DCUII : min fps : 31.1
max fps : 62.1 Max fps : 60.3
av fps : 51.6 av fps : 44.9
I tried to overcloked the Asus stronger but the min ips stayed arround 31....before that I have overckloed the card by pushing the temp on 90 and the power target. (I was followed a website indication) But after 15 minute of gaming the pc reboot and i smell the smoke. So I open my tower ( master cooler silencio 450) and reboot the PC.
Since this bad times, my card run correctly but I don't understand 3 things :
1) why, with the same frequences of my past Zotac Amp ! my bench are so different ?
2) why GeForce experience told me to run Titanfall at max setting, and I could not keep the 60 frames at ultra +MSAAX2 (with the Zotac it was almost ok at ultra+MSAAX8).
GPU tweak says that the game use all my vram !
3) the green led of the card, light occasionally when my pc is completly off
All of this could be link to the bad overclocking ?
Please help and sorry for my English.redface.gif
1 - you may have a driver problem, did you re-install drivers after switching cards?
2- Do not use GeForce experience...
3- Your card still gets minimum voltage from the PSU, make sure to turn off the power line to the PSU, re-check your electric cables!
If you wish i can help translating as i speak a few languages! PM me!

I can raise Core +100 Memory +400 Usage stays at 98-97% through whole test on both cards, clock barely throttles on #2 card 16.4k score, and doing the same on manual voltage of any sort makes it have 80% or less usage on the #2 card with a 12k score.
What was your PT in the AB monitor? Hitting 100%? increase it if that´s the case!

No, there is no way to unlock cores they are laser cut!
Read my OC guide for some pointers: OCCAMRAZOR ADVANCED GK110 OC GUIDE
For bios flashing you have EZ3flash in my SIG and my flash guide too!
