[OFFICIAL] GTX 770 Owners Club - Page 899

Yeah, and what does that very first condition say again? Something about customer modification being outside of factory specification voids the warranty is it?

I turned off the throttling also, and my card never went above 82c and the fan never went above 60% so throttling isn't an issue for me. I still have a good 8-10c I could push this card on air.

Yes, I know electronics perform better when cooler, but there is no reason to believe temperature is the issue for my instability at clocks over 1202mhz

I have confirmation via ticket in my account and ticket # of an EVGA rep certifying that custom bios's and either overclocking via bios and/or software overclocking in windows on dual-bios cards doesn't violate warranty on superclocked cards.

So I'm fine and dandy and good. And even confirmed if it bricks the card just send it in and they'll still replace it. Part of buying dual-bios superclocked (and above) cards.

You will need heat spreaders or heatsinks on your VRAM and VRM, but your card should already have that. At MOST you may need a copper shim if your heat spreader interferes with the AIO seating properly on the GPU, but other than that it should work fine.
Most GTX 770s throttled at 80C. They'll all run up to 80C and then start backing down the GPU speed to maintain that temp.

I've got a comparison for you here. This is my own system with one G10/X41 installed and the other running on air. This is the highest overclock I could achieve with one card running air cooled.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Air cooled = 1246mhz




And this is with both cards liquid cooled =1303mhz



The initial overclock went from 1246 to 1302mhz on the GPU, but even more important since the cards stayed in the mid 40C range there was never any throttling which resulted in a 7fps increase in average frame rates.

still got a bit more to go if you can unlock your voltage

Hello.

I'm asking for help with following issue (I've also asked for help on MSI forums):

I have MSI GTX 770 Lightning x2 in SLI.
I had one then bought another one on ebay.
I'm trying to activate Win10 features in my MSI z97 gaming 7 motherboard and getting message: "There is no GOP (Graphics Output Protocol) support detected in this card". So I think I need new vbios for my GTX770.
The problem is that the second card shows UNKNOWN bios in GPU-Z or some strange version when in SLI.

QUESTIONS:
1) Does UNKNOWN vbios sign means that former owner tried to flash some vbios and failed?
2) Can I flash new vbios when SLI is activated or should I deactivate SLI and flash cards one by one? Should I remove one card and flash another?


- MODEL 01 (bought in Europe):
BIOS (GPU-Z): 80.04.c3.00.38
BIOS (MSI UPDATE): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

- MODEL 02 (bought on ebay in US):
BIOS (GPU-Z) - NO SLI: UNKNOWN
BIOS (GPU-Z) - SLI: 80.04.bc.00.10 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.

I'm just guessing here but it looks to me like you got different cards. That is they may be the same make (manufacturer) and the same model, but different revisions of the PCB. This is a common thing that sometimes happens when buying one then another one much later. The reason I say this is because it says right there in the GPU-Z, one is revision "FF" and one is revision "A2". It may be possible that these two cards are not compatible at all in an SLI configuration and will not work together. I'm not entirely sure.. and just sort of speculating here. But it's something I have heard of in the past (different PCB revisions not working together).

The second (most recent card you just bought)... have you tried installing it solo, by it's self as a single-card and verify it actually works and functions correctly on it's own outside of SLI yet? That would of been the very first thing I would do myself, before even trying SLI.

I haven't tried second card solo but I will.

Actually they are working in SLI in my computer with no problems.

If they were working correctly then you should be able to view the specs and bios's of both cards independently with gpu-z, at least normally.

sometimes during shipping the cards get thrown around and the vbios memory will drop settings , and sometimes a reflash will help i would try msi live update
i dont know if it will run on a non msi board hope this helps

Could anyone upload their 770 custom BIOSes (and accompanying stock bios) that have throttling disabled (and list other changes too please)? Going to try modifying my 4GB Gigabyte Windforce since don't have the rep for request thread and no one with my card has done a prior request.

EDIT: On second thoughts, my card doesn't seem too rare so if it anyone has a custom BIOS for the Gigabyte Windforce 4GB I'd greatly appreciate it!

Cheers all.


Don't worry all, I am a nincompoop who didn't use the search function properly on the request thread.
