Yeah, but that only happens if the card is well oc'd. Because of this I don't think that nvidia will fix it. Seems like the only way out is to mod the voltages for the specific clock states within the bios (as soon as this will be possible).
post #3023 of 10534
Well maybe we could find out if they are going to fix it...if Nvidia would ever release a new damned driver, it's only been 5+ weeks and tons of games still completely lacking SLI support, go Nvidia!

I can go an hour with 1535 on the core in A3 before driver issues. Can go hours + at a core/boost of 1517........................ go figure.

I get a BETTER overclock at STOCK voltage (ie dont touch the slider)!!!!
Thanks for that. Sounds like the same issue alright, seeing as your having problems with the voltage slider too. It's a relief to hear that it may be driver related. I'll keep an eye on the evga forums.

Max boost clock, which in my case is indeed 1367. Thought that was normal? I checked the specs for the SC and it lists the max boost as 1340 or thereabouts.

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

Gigabyte GTX980 G1: No coil whine, "no powerlimit" (max usage is 80%), overclocks very good, cold and quiet.

I got 2x gtx 980 G1. 65%asic and 79% asic. 1559mhz VS 1584mhz. There is no drop in frequency on this card on full load, because the powerlimit is very high thumb.gif

I tested 2x evga 980 SC reference and 1x msi 980 reference. All these uses more power than the powerlimit, and drops in performance. Reference sux compared to G1. Almost the same prize too here in Norway.
post #3026 of 10534
If that was the case, couldn't we all just flash the G1 bios onto our reference cards?

Nah, reference does not suck when it doesn`t have the power limit, hehe

This doesn't -always- happen for me though. It only happens sometimes.

Guess gotta wait for new driver and see if the problem persists.
