Should I be concerned? Has anyone else has had blue screens in that particular game?

Which clock are you reporting there. That doesn't sound right considering the SC default boost to like 1413 or so. We are all using our max boost core clock speeds when we are listing them.

Hopefully that does the trick

I've tried that. Doesn't work. frown.gif

Any more ideas?

Threx are you using an Asus GSync Swift??

Yes but I was just trying to point out that I am hearing a whine now and the ASIC dropped 3% so it might mean something? So should exchange it for another MSI or switch to Gigabyte because the coil whine either way I am getting a water block

I believe i found out why my GTX 980 has been crashing on relatively "weak" games.

Some context:

- My Gigabyte GTX 980 (ASIC 82.8%) boosts to 1303Mhz with a stock voltage of 1.21v

- I managed to achieve an OC of 1513/8000 without touching the voltage. I checked the stability with some loops of 3dMark 13 @ 4K, Heaven 4.0 @ 1440p (MSAA 8X / Tessleation @ Extreme) and 45 minutes of Crysis 3 @ V.High (1440p).


For example when i play F1 2014 (1440p / Ultra / V-Sync ON) with the OC profile enabled at some point because of the low GPU Load the 980 will downclock to 1400Mhz and 1.08v which eventually causes a driver crash (the nvlddmkm thing).

I've also seen it downclocking to 1240Mhz/0.97v with the same result: driver crash, it always happens with the GPU Load is low (Very)

If i leave it on stock it won't crash when it downclocks (1130mhz @ 0.97v) but here is the trick: with the OC profile enabled (1513/8000) i played F1 2014 @ 4K (DSR) + MSAA 8X V-Sync off and didn't have a single crash for over 3 hours.

Is this a driver issue or i've to RMA the card ?.

OC vs Gpu load vs Boost Clock vs Voltage proof (check gpu clock and voltage):

Yup, I am.

But my desktop resolution is set to 120 though, not 144, so it should be downclocking properly. (But even if it were 144hz, it should only keep the boost clock at about 800-900, not 1117.)

Hmmm. Also have a swift. My desktop is 120Hz., It downclocks RIGHT down to the lowest setting/clock. The only other thing would bet to re-install the drivers. Have had that before.

I really think until nvidia gets these drivers sorted out, we aren't going to get great stable clocks. Both my 980 sc have a whine but they have given me zero problems besides that so its hard to send them in.

My bottom card never reaches the voltage I set it at. Its always .05v+ lower.

gotta be driver, I can replicate it perfectly, I was testing out gsync last night and was cycling through my refresh rates on my monitor, everytime I'd get to 60hz from 144hz, the cards would jump down to 12xxmhz and the voltage would jump down to 1.012 or something low like that and it would crash within seconds, tried it 4 times in a row

So basically every maker has it own problems?
Talking bout custom cards btw

Msi = coil whine and no backplate
Gigabyte = loud + coil whine
Zotac = voltage lock
Asus = low tdp (I think?)
Galax = no idea yet
Gainward = nothing so far
Inno3d = airboss is kinda loud
Evga = to much to sum up?

Doesn't make it easier to choose lol
