post #16471 of 21376
Been benching my 980 KPE w/ EK block. Doesn't seem to want to hit 1600 core :/ On a funny note, I've been benching 1575/8000, 1575/8100, 1575/8200 @ 1.3v without issue (7495 highest in Fire Strike Extreme). If I try for fun to set the voltage to 1.325 or 1.350 or 1.400 in GTX Classified Controller tool (without even touching core/memory voltages), then 3DMark crashes almost instantly and I have to reboot the PC otherwise it will keep crashing.

Does the BIOS in these cards matter if you use kboost and set your volts/clocks manually? I know there's an OC and LN2 BIOS, wonder if I should give those a go.

Sounds just like mine!

Damn Aussie Classys!

This second one I bought in October last year was the last one at pccg. And I've had nothing but problems. Literally 90% of the time is trying to find a solution than actually gaming. Might need to contact evga to send me the default ln2 bios that came with the card, as I cannot find it anywhere. And send it to pccg to cover the costs sending it to evga as it's still under retail warranty. This card cannot even hit 1200mhz! It needs around 1.4v (tested with DMM) to be stable at that clock lol.

man that's horribly low. What's interesting is, one out of 4 classies i've had also did poorly - 1200mhz-ish @ > 1.3v to be stable. Evga replaced it though.

Yeah it is very low. My first card does 1400mhz at 1.31v. As you know with sli yore limited to the lowest dominator. What did you tell evga for the reason for RMA that granted you a replacement?

Yeap.

NO 980 will read proper voltages in software.

I could get 1650/8100 on air with (under water now also) the 04pc bios but in SLI I can't regardless of volts tested .................so far.

Same crashes as you.

My temps never go over 55c (70ish on air) so I haven't really pushed voltage high yet.

Try a custom bios if you haven't already, I found at higher voltages you get better OC. Also there was an issue with PX that if you had a driver crash you needed to re-install as you kept getting constant crashes, not sure if that is still the case it was posted back about 4/5 weeks ago. I also found 374.88 drivers to be more stable then 350.12. Since you noting voltages I also imagine you have multimeter to check you voltages.

sounds identical to mine. I have the standard bios mate.

Happy to upload it when I get home tonight.

Thanks, where can I find this BIOS? I tried the xoc bios on page 1 but didn't read the info and ended up with the black screen issue XD. Luckily I switched the BIOS with the physical switch, changed to the iGPU in my mobo BIOS, switched back to the other BIOS on the KPE and flashed it back to a working one.

Where do you get custom BIOS versions? I had to reboot after a crash to fix the issue, which worked for me. Otherwise it would constantly crash afterwards. I'm on the latest stable driver before 350 since I have g sync issues on the latest whql driver. No dmm to verify but it would seem odd going over 1.3 and getting lower voltage. I know that software can't read voltages accurately but I'm not benchmarking seriously, just trying to hit at least 1600 and using fire strike extreme as a quick stability test.
