Hi everybody!

I got a new Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming a few weeks ago. It came with a 65,9% ASIC.

After a lot of testing and overclocking I created a F42 custom BIOS myself with Maxwell Bios Tweaker following the tutorials here on the forum, disabling boost, raising voltage to 1.25v and overclocking by default to 1545/2003. Then with MSI Afterburner I just raised power limit to 150% and also raised GPU clock a little bit more by 20 mhz to reach the right now stable 1565/2003 as seen on the screenshots below.



The temperatures were crazy, above 90ºC, so I created a very aggressive fan profile in MSI Afterburner.



Now the GPU when not used stays at 45º C and when playing it can go from 70ºC to 80ºC. I always play with headphones so I don't mind the fans noise.

I'm not seeing artifacts at all, for now. The card is rock solid. 100% stable. If I overclock to 1585/2003 I start to see some artifacts and glitches but can play OK. The maximum overclock I can get is 1605/2003 but games will crash after one minute. smile.gif Do you think such overclock, 1565/2003 for daily gaming, can hurt the life of my card?

Thank you very much.

BIOS HELP REQUEST

Hi, I have a Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 GV-N980WF3OC-4GD with GV-N980WF3OC-4GD.F50 BIOS. I'm trying to flash GV-N980WF3OC-4GD F51, N980WO4DD.F51 / N980WO4DP.F51 but i get a 0x2000000C err code which means absolutely nothing to me, could somebody steer me in the right way to facilitate this? As some of you may well know with Gigabyte BIOS version variants are a debacle.

Many Thanks
Richard

You need to unzip the contents of the BIOS folder. Did you right-click on the zip folder and select 'Extract all'?

Hi,

Why with EVGA Geforce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 when I overclock it +85 core I can see some artifacts (black blinking) in Fire Strike (even if I rise the voltage +81mV and TPD target 124%, Temp target 85).

I cannot pass +85Mhz without artifacts in this test. +74 OK, +80 OK with +6mV, +85Mhz artifacts (sometimes) no matter what (+81 mV).

Furmark crashing OpenGL driver at +90Mhz, no matter of voltage and TPD target.


And in Valley/Heaven even at +105Mhz there is no artifacts at all.

ASIC = 70%.


ps. memory is +500 without issues.

Thanks

I just tried with nvflash and it says it has to be .nvr or .rom. Why does gigabyte provide .F51 file extention
