I do pick up on subtle noises in my computer as well. One of my gentle typhoon AP-15s earlier this year started making a slight little squeaky noise at RPM above 1200 or so, and it drove me bonkers. Wife couldn't hear it, and I do have partial hearing loss. Just doesn't seem to affect frequencies so much as volume.

Maybe I've just been very lucky!

None of my AP-15's have ever gone bad like that (yet), and I have had dozens of typhoons scattered around. However, one of my Gelid nanoflux flux bearing uv green fans has a small strange chirp-click, almost like a very small cricket has entered the system and singing for a mate at low volumes, seriously. And it only presents itself once every other month or so. Its one of them noises that can't really be pinpointed (sounds like it is coming from everywhere), so I walk around the room trying to figure out where it is coming from. VERY annoying and time wasting... When I grab the spinning blades with a finger, push on it a little bit, let go of it so it will start spinning again the sound is gone, and then does not come back for weeks, or several months at a time.

The GTX coil whine would just force me to leave the room entirely though, lol to retain my sanity.

What I don't get is a third party seller called "Spicy Bomb" on Amazon has had several different models in stock since they were released, but at a $100 markup. That seller has somehow managed to have a pretty steady stock for the last month. Worst part is people seem to be buying them at the asking price, but I suppose that is supply and demand. The whole appeal to these cards is their low price, but then that's why they are selling so fast from the normal retailers.

I'm waiting a few months to get my second card and block anyways. Hopefully by then they will be more readily available and we'll have an unlocked BIOS to play with. Getting a new monitor is a priority, but the Swift is also difficult to find these days too.

Nice, looks like Newegg is able to send me a new SC after all. Good timing.

ASIC is basically a way of telling you that if its lower you are gonna have higher overclocks and allowed more voltage when its watercooled and its the other way around when its higher.

And you can find the ASIC quality by right clicking the top bar on GPU-Z and selecting read ASIC quality.

You should also turn the settings in the benchmark all the way up.

Hi, I'm sure this has been covered before but I didn't have the time to read through the whole thread.

My Asus 980 Strix sometimes refuses to downclock even when the computer is idling. The core remains at 1117Mhz, which in turn keeps the temperature at about 60C and so the fans keep spinning the whole time.

Only a PC reboot will fix this issue.

My windows power savings is set to Balanced.

Anyone have the same problem?

Ya but what does it measure to tell you this? Just the stock voltage at idle and on load?

Picked up a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! Extreme Edition yesterday and was so exited to test this card that looked so good on paper.
Two 8-pin power connectors and a couple of LN2 switches made me hopeful that this card would give me some extra vcore to OC higher than the ref cards.

Boy was I wrong, first of all this card doesn't work with either MSI Afterburner nor EVGA PercisionX so you have to use the FireStorm (Rev 2) to adjust speeds, TP and vcore(this is kind of DRM isn't it?). The card also have a USB connector to connect to your motherboard not sure why as I couldn't see any difference in OC'ing with or without it.

This card comes with a high base-clock at 1393 MHz boost so I hoped it would go much higher but I was very disappointed. First of all on the MSI GTX 980 Gamer card I tested the vcore max was 1,25V measured with DMM on this ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! Extreme Edition it was 1,225V and that was all I could get out of it.

So how high could I push this card? Max OC on core was 1503 MHz and then it only could pass Firestrike half of the time, memory went to ~2000 MHz. So this "Extreme" GTX 980 wasn't extreme at all and is going back today after reading this review.
