I would go with the G1.

Hi,

yeah I also cranked up the voltage, temps are totally fine, but she won't boost higher. Even worse is the memory. I live in China and bought my MSI GTX 980 GAMING 4 G here and it came with Elpida (!) memory chips which wont go higher as +200. My GPU is +160. If I go to 165, I start to get artifacts...

odd, my PNY reference has the Elpida vram chips and I can get them to +500 with MSI Afterburner.
you do know that the MSI 980 and 970 have the worst vram cooling per what I read on a number of reviews,
maybe set a small fan close to your gpu and see if that helps.

Thanks for the tip. thumb.gif Maybe I'm just unlucky. Before I had a MSI GTX 970 Golden Edition with Hynix which I could crank up +500 on the memory and +190 on GPU. It boosted up to 1550 Mhz. But nevertheless, my GTX 980 overclocked is around 13 fps faster than the overclocked 970 I had before.

yeah my Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970 had Samsung memory, the card is a beast, I like it so much I still have it as I just can't part with it.
it would run stable at 1605mhz core clock all day long. I'm still on the fence on my GTX 980, only gives maybe 7 fps improvement in games over my 970

I know what you mean. Those 13 fps I have more re a nice reserve for the future, plus the 980 doesn't have the 4 GB memory issue biggrin.gif
I'm happy as it is for now. Im not a hardcore gamer and I have to admit I play on 1080p for now lol, so the 980 is more than enough for now biggrin.gif

Always late. I only have a small bump on the cpu- @4.2Ghz and just got the card week or two ago. It's the first night it's been running under water so I'm still testing it out.

Here's mine

Hi guys, i have sort of have a silly question ... so last night i was playing GTAV i was like hell lets see what happens when you max memory bar in Graphics, it was like 4178 out of 4096 memory and the bar was obviously red but still my game was flawless with 45+ fps and no fps drops or lags or delays what so ever, so i when the online mission completed i did the same thing on AC syndicate and maxed the memory bar in graphics on ACS i had 35+ fps and no lag or instability ... i have been really confused how come exceeding the memory bar on both games and yet the games were working fine .... very confused ...ehhh sorry if i sound stupid tongue.gif

That memory bar is pretty much pointless. It's there to give you an idea, but it is in no way accurate. If you have MSI Afterburner installed, your better off just keeping an eye on GPU memory usage in OSD.
