I bit the bullet and got 2x GTX 980 K|ngp|ns, I was debating on two Titan Xs instead but after reading I figured the 980's would hold it's value and will be easier to sell should I decided to upgrade again. Hopefully I made the right choice. I would like to enjoy 4k but from what everyone is saying graphics cards are still not there yet, maybe Pascal will change that.

hey guys,i have asus gtx 980 matrix on 1570 mhz whit max 125% power target.... and i notice when i am playing or benchmarking that when card will use arround max power target voltage 1.21v is on max also but when power target usage will droop a little bit also voltage will droop and clocks of 1570 mhz are same...from there i just don't get why voltage will droop when power target usage droops also to lower %....
say on 115% voltage is on max 1.21v but lower power target say arround 100% voltage will droop from 1.21v to 1.198v.it seams that voltage is connected whit power target usage.from there i have some crashs cos of that....

dear 980 owners, which 980 is the best for oc-ing ? I mean it gotta have at least 8+6 pins connectors, unlocked voltage and power limit that won't make it throttle. thx in advance

Asus Strix used to be the main recommendation due to it being easy to unlock voltages and whatnot. Plus the fact its still significantly cheaper than the Classifieds (which seem to be a bit of a bust this go-around), and the Kingpins have had rather mixed reviews (cores don't always clock as high as reference or Strix cards, although memory apparently overclocks like a bat out of hell).

Biggest factor is still silicon lottery though.

Same question for me: does the majority of 980s come with locked voltage?
Is the power-limit locked down in some cards?

Help! Is one of my 980s fried?

I had 3 x 980 in SLI, everything was working fine, three-way SLI had been set up with control panel when I got the cards a few days ago. It was all dandy and 4k was looking great.

Then today (inconveniently during a heist mission on GTA V) the screen froze, the speakers emitted a continuous buzz and the system hung. When I restarted, NVIDIA CP told me that my "SLI configuration had changed" - when I looked, it was only showing two cards in SLI, worse still, device manager is only detecting 2 980s redface.gif

I've narrowed it down to the offending card, I can confirm from testing with the 2 good cards that all the PCIe lanes are working fine.

...but the card that was in the lower slot (lane 3) won't be detected by windows regardless of which slot it goes in to, moreover if I try to run it as a single GPU in lane 1, I get no VGA output. The EVGA LEDs light up on the card when the system starts, although the fan only spins a couple of revolutions every 5-10 seconds or so.

Where do I start here? Inspecting the card, it looks fine, no visible damage, is there a chance is overheated and fried? Is there any DIY repair I can do or do I head straight to EVGA for the warranty returns process. FYI it's an EVGA 980 ACX 2.0.

All of the cards were running at stock with no OC.

Any help welcomed.

emm check the gpu in a friends rig if possible , is it giving any display when connected to a display , remove all gpus and just use this one , does it give any display or not /
if there is no display even in another pc then most probably some thing has gone wrong - get a rma

Hey all

Out of all the "Extreme" GTX 980s (HoF, Amp Extreme, G1, Kingpin) etc, which is considered the best of the best (on air and on water)

I am currently looking at going either SLI Kingpins or Gold Editions by Asus.
