I was going to try this with a 980ti cooler (same as titan x) but the dude with the 980ti stood me up so I never got it to try
edit: it should fit though if I'm correct

I'm playing wow at the highest settings and my 980 is using 1.8GB of my video memory but i've seen on GPU-Z that my card goes up to 99% load while playing, doesnt seem right to me, any1 knows why?

It means that your video board is being utilized to its fullest. This is a good thing in my opinion.

^This. The 1.8GB will mostly be filled with textures in use, or waiting to be used, and is not directly related to core usage. I am actually surprised to hear that WoW eats 1.8GB, I would think that for its age it would use significantly less. But like Zhul pointed out, if you are maxing out your cards core, then you are getting your moneys worth...

That's an awful lot of boost on your Memory Clock. I never boost over +250 as I can't see any benefit with anything higher. Try lowering your Memory Clock and focus more on overclocking your Core Clock.

Yep but I've been rs stable for hours and hours on bench / stress tests and even gaming in the last month, at 1551/8000
This seems to be a sftware thingie, now it won't let me play at 7500 memory clock, after 15' or so it goes down to 6000 but that's not all, my gpu loads instantly to 100% also increasing my memory mb and te memory controller load but the game starts to stutter like hell.
Consider that I'm using a modified bios with 1.275v and increased tdp and power on the pcie but I'm under water, the temps are never exceeding 43-44 C

And how come it won't even let me increase the slider to go and increase the memory any more?

"One other thing I've noticed (even before I was gonna start playing TW3) trying to oc with the nvidia inspector:
so, after the first oc (1531 default gpu, voltage and the other two sliders maxed and the memory to 7500) I was trying a second one starting from the first one but applying to the new clocks (1551/8000) was not possible as the memory slider was always remaining at its 7500 value"


Could even be a virus or it's just the windows 10 driving me crazy, I'm seriously thinking to downgrade to windows 8.1

A few days later I was inching to flash just to see what the cards capable of with out the limits, got Mr-Dark to hustle me up a 1500 template as i was in a hurry, my card is absolute game stable. I haven't had time to OC more so probably i'll create my own ROM over the weekend and test it for max game stability.

Single player Crysis 3 with a texture pack incoming, happy days. thumb.gif

So, I had to reinstall windows 10 to get rid of the weird above issue
Right now I'm on the G1 Gaming's stock bios (F51) and was trying to overclock a little less (with the nvidia inspector).
I'm playing TW3 with the newest 358.87 whql
In order to get around 1500 gpu (7500 on memory) I had to slightly increase the voltage by +25mv, getting a 1.237 vcore (I don't want to push more for now) but after some 20-30' of playing I'm getting a grey screen.
Try to either increase to +37.5mv or lower the gpu clock to 1497 but it still ends up with the grey freeze screen.
Let's say I'm gonna leave the +25mv only and try to lower some more the gpu clock.
But do you guys confirm me that is the gpu clock too high (or voltage too less) to cause the instability?
It can't be the memory, since I was benching (and even playing some other games) before at 8000, am I right?

It could be that your gpu just want hold a stable overclock that high. Mine can bench at 1580/8100 but is only game stable around 1480/8000 or so. Its just a matter of getting lucky on the silicon lottery. If you are getting crashes/grey screens then the only option is to add voltage and try again.
