post #21201 of 21379
Hi Everyone,

I have a pair of 980Ti Kingpins I am having some problems with, which I believe may be due to running sensors-detect in Linux and allowing it to probe all the ports it found.

sensors-detect is, as it sounds, a utility that comes with the lm_sensors package that is used to look for hardware monitoring sensors.

Since doing this, the cards work in text/console mode -- but in either Linux or Windows (7), very shortly after switching to GUI, the display on all monitors either goes blank, flashes, changes to one or more solid colors, or displays random graphics garble. The machine then generally locks up or shuts itself down and reboots. (Asus X99-E WS).

I'm not sure how big into Linux folks are here, but it may not matter too much. If I am right about sensors-detect causing my problems, it is likely because of allowing it to probe the various i2c/SMBUS devices it found (which are embedded on the video cards). There are a few cases documented out there I have since found of people having persistent problems - such as with laptop displays - where sensors-detect probing caused problems such as color changes, gamma, etc. Some were lucky and able to use a different i2c-specific utility to set byte values until they found the one that made the display work properly again.

The main thing I am trying to find out is whether it is likely that re-flashing a BIOS onto the Kingpins would have any chance of resetting the original values of i2c/SMBUS devices on the cards. I have not customized/OC'd either of these cards and they are still running the BIOS they came with in Oct. of last year.

Unfortunately now sensors-detect does not even see the i2c devices it found before, and I do not have the original output of running the utility to show the I/O addresses of the i2c devices it had found previously.

I'm just trying to avoid having to send them back for service/replacement/whatever.

I know... my bad for doing this, and no, I'll never let sensors-detect just go wild probing stuff ever again.

But if anyone has any ideas, it might make for some interesting discussion. smile.gif

Thanks,
PharaohsPaw

Have you tried all 3 bios's on the 980ti KPE cards ?

Thanks for the replies. That thought did hit me earlier, I could try switching to another BIOS and see if it works from there. I will have to read up on which is best to switch to when doing standard/stock air cooling fans. I probably need to make sure I do not use the one intended for LN.

If that helps then theoretically I should be able to reflash the stock original BIOS to that slot...

Thanks

You are fine to run either the OC or LN2 bios without worry. The only difference is they run 7096mhz on the memory standard, and have increased power limit slider.

Hello classy community. I'm in a dilemma right now. I just purchased my Asus rog pg348q 3440x1440p 100hz monitor and it's putting a slight strain on my dual 780ti classy's with the skyn3t bios. I'm trying to decide if the 1080 is worth it or just hold out for a 1080ti if we get one or Volta which I've read tumors of next year?

Depends on what games you want to play and at what settings, on the that monitor. Have you considered getting a used 980 Ti or maybe a new 1070 as a tie me over? Only reason I say that is the 1080 isn't the best value for money. A few posts ago somebody mentioned getting ready to sell their 980 Ti Classy w/EK block.

Nah i dont buy into old/used tech. Im one of those i buy the best i can so it lasts me the longest. I want 100fps basically at all times so if i upgrade it would be to the 1080's in sli as i dont see paying 70% more for 30-40%'ish performance increase for a titan XP. I was really wanting to wait it out for HBM2 but not sure i will have that luxury. I'm a spoiled enthusiast and like my settings at all max lol. Hence why i purchased the 780ti classifieds basically as soon as they released. Right now i play bf4 at max settings no issues and BF1 if my next game of choice as im a BF fan all the way back to bf 1942 (the best one apart from bf2) but i also play division, doom and maybe the new titanFall. Division of course sucks at this res cause the optimization for division sucks something awful. Just not sure if i will see the HUGE performance gain going from 780ti to 1080 like i did going from my old 560ti classified to the 780ti classified

Arma is not really GPU demanding. You need like a 5Ghz 6700K to run that game decently LOL.
