post #24571 of 24915
Hi guys, I know this forum isn't as hot anymore. I've tried to help as many people as possible in here.. Hopefully someone can help me right now. I haven't flashed a GPU in a while. My 1st Gpu I flashed was an ASUS DCU2OC 780 with REV 1 I'm ready to flash my 2nd gpu, its a reference MSI gtx 780. after reading I don't see any exact version for this . I see skyn3t-37-Ref-OC.zip which is REV 3. it states it can be used on any Titan cooling chamber. It matches my bios from my card which is 80.10.37.00.05. Can anyone confirm rev 3 will work for my reference none oc MSI gtx 780? Any help, of course is appreciated!..

Hi guys, hopefully someone will see this smile.gif

I have a EVGA ACX SC that Ive repasted a couple of times over the last couple years. Core temps are great except now GPUZ is reporting its limited by PWR as well as Vrel at stock settings. Used to be just Vrel at stock.

Can anyone tell me if this is normal degradation over time or if its possible that I have loosened the thermal pads on the VRM's when removing the cooler causing them to heat up more?

Also when I first got it, it would boost up to around 1200 on the stock BIOS before hitting the PWR limit, now it wont go further then about 1175/1162 and more volts just causes more heat and doesnt help it go any further. This is what makes me think its just a bit of degradation.

Card works totally fine no crashes no artifacts etc yet, I would just replace the pads and see except that the card has a baseplate



....and as such if I removed it to check the condition I would have to replace them anyway. I'm looking to sell it this weekend and dont want to have to wait for thermal pads/tape next week before I do so.

Anyone else found the PWR limiter coming into play more over time?

My experience tells me that in every game the Power limit is different example :

Mad max with oc reaches easy 110+ power
Syndicate with oc never go above 102 power

Yea I should have said I'm talking about in Uniengine Heaven, its what I usually use on a loop for testing temps etc. smile.gif

Hey guys,

I am new here but I am interested in getting my dual 780 bios hacked and cranking as much performance as they can handle but I am unsure of which GPU I have. I got this PC custom built. I only know that they are EVGA Reference 780s. I was wondering if anyone can clarify which ones they are and more importantly, tell me which bios to flash?

Well first of you need to know what your stock bios is using gpuz. The difference between a few of the bios is if it has dual fans or a reference board. It doesn't really matter if it's the superclocked reference or just the plain one. If you have the acx cooler then you need one specific to it for the dual fan profile.

My stock bios for both cards is 80.80.31.00.82. I have the reference design with one fan. But both my gpus are on waterblocks. So would I be flashing the EVGA 780 SC Reference B1? Thanks so much for the reply!

Well if you're sure it's the SC the only difference is a different base clock. You need the v4 for the b1 gpu. IMO it doesn't matter if you use the SC or straight reference since you plan on overclocking.

I'm like 80% sure. When I click the card lookup button on GPU-Z it lands me on this page: http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b2594/evga-gtx-780.html. So maybe you can be a better judge of this information. Yeah sc vs reference probably doesn't matter but I just don't want to brick my cards while they are in a water cooling loop.
