Is it safe to run the skyn3t BIOS 24/7 at stock clocks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just flashed my 780 SC to the latest version of the skyn3t BIOS in order to disable GPU Boost 2.0. It worked perfectly and allowed me to run a few benchmarks with the core clock rock solid at 1240MHz. I'm done with my benchmarking for now so should I flash back to the stock bios or is it safe to just run it this way with the clocks/voltages all set back to their defaults? My concern is that I don't fully understand the Power Target function and I noticed that with this skyn3t BIOS, 100% power target equals 330W whereas the stock BIOS only hits at 250W at 100%. As long as I am at stock clocks and voltages, does this matter? Any help would be appreciated and thank you to skyn3t for the awesome BIOS!

Since it runs stock clocks at all times you aren't going to have any throttling.

Other than that though you're completely safe (or should be as long as your cooling is working/decent). My 7970 is constantly running at stock clocks (disabled throttling) and I've never ever had an issue. So yeah, I'd say you're completely fine.

Thanks for the reply. Just to be safe, I downloaded the latest version of the Kepler Bios Tweaker and adjusted the skyn3t BIOS so that the Power Target was 250w at 100% (just like stock) and 400w at 160%. I don't know if this even makes a difference but it makes me feel better knowing that everything is the same as a stock card but if I want to overclock the hell out of it without worrying about GPU Boost 2.0, I'm all set haha.
