OccamRazer, you answered my post about a week ago asking which BIOS file to use for my EVGA 780 Ti. I was just wondering if there might have been some level of confusion in my post. I've been using the Skyn3t BIOS on both of my Asus 780 Ti's, but after flashing my new EVGA GPU, my computer acts up quite often. I get a strange flicker when my one of my GPUs tries to downclock itself back to idle, or at least that is what I'm assuming is causing the error. This mainly only occurs while watching Youtube, and not while playing a game. I assume that's because during gaming, the GPU is constantly in its peak power state. It's not just one monitor though, it's all of my monitors.

What I've read on this issue is that it applies to overclocks. Mainly for AMD GPUs though, and the only fix that I can find deals with the CCC, which I don't (have) use. Something about the downclock from peak to idle causes the strange flicker, and the MSI Afterburner log (GPU POWER) reflects this as well.

Strangely this wasn't an issue prior to the custom BIOS flash. Whether the two are actually related, or if it's just coincidence remains to be seen.

Flash the card again and make sure you are not using drivers 334 branch (just to rule the drivers out of the equation)! Give me feedback so i can help you further! thumb.gif

I bought an EVGA 780 Ti SC w/ std cooler a couple weeks ago from new egg for $720. Thought about the ACX cooler'd one, but I didn't feel like paying $10 more.

I went to buy another one for my build and noticed the same card was $730....
BUT, the ACX cooler'd one was $710. biggrin.gif


I also bought an Asus M6E.



It's going to be a slow build...trying to buy all the more expensive stuff first.

Just make sure you at least POST the motherboard and test the GPU's, if you wait till it's time to do the full build and one is DOA it's a real PITA then to RMA them versus just doing a quick swap with the EGG!!

I have the 4770k already. am I able to see if the mobo will post without ram?

I'm going to get all my hardware first before I start getting the case and other stuff.

My plan is to get all my hardware (need to get ram and my hard drives) and get everything set up properly before I stick everything in a case.

This is also my first build.

So THIS wont happen! (there is always a chance for something to go wrong but we have to take precautions to diminish those odds right? wink.gif )

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Cover this area (+- 1,5mm thermal pads) on the back of the PCB as its opposite to the VRM modules and will optimize heat transfer to the backplate (you wont see much difference but its better than nothing IMO) thumb.gif

Sorry for the machinegun answers! tongue.gif

Take care

Same with my XSPC water block. No pad on these 2 inductor so I unmounted my block and stick some 0.5mm there, just to be safe. That's when I'm glad I put 2 no spill quick disconnect at the RAD to the GPU and from the GPU to the reservoir. thumb.gif

Thanks for the heads up!

Can't post without RAM. Also when I made my build, I got an Intel stock cooler to test the components on the bench before installing all the water cooling stuff. Everything was working but like JimHans1 said, you don't want to find out something is defective once all the build is finished.

I got a reference EVGA 780TI and want to flash Skynet BIOS. So how do I use EZFLASH what commands do I enter? Everything is in a folder and the Skynet BIOS has been renamed to 'X.rom'?

Do I need to disable EEprom? Or go just a normal flash
