I was always scared to death about getting Elpida memory. I don't know why. They have been around for a long time but don't seem to work as well as Hynix. I am certain my second MSI 980 had Elpida memory and it flaked out and failed giving me pink and green squares. One RMA later I am back to matching ASIC and Hynix memory.

Hopefully there is a way to see without taking the card out of the system.....

Use GPU-Z. https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/

Yeah. I would have never expected a High End Card like the 980 would come with Elpida. But my MSI GTX 980 GAMING did.
Even my former 970 Golden Edition had at least Hynix. Right now +200 is the max in my afterburner. Everything above it.. squares and artifacts.

I am at +280 on my memory clock right now and had it as high as +300 without problems. IDK how far I can actually go as I don't see much difference when gaming. I don't know if I would notice any difference if I had Samsung memory but what I can say is that I have never had any problems from any of my five EVO drives. I can't find any reference to it anywhere I look but I am sure that I'd seen a video board or two where the VRAM could have its voltage boosted. Has anyone else seen this or am I halucinating? Maybe it's the Kingpin boards or at least one of the AMD boards. I imagine it is specific to Samsung memory modules too. Is there any real benefit to over-volting your VRAM?

hey guys! i just picked up dual asus strix 980's in sli to replace my 970's (evga ftw+'s) sli i had.

i'm wondering if these benchmark numbers seem about right:

according to gpu-z (checked by running two instances to log both cards to a .txt file):
core on both cards: ~1279mhz - 1302mhz - average of 1301mhz
memory on both: 1752.4mhz (both samsung)
nvidia drivers: 361.75

bench one: unigine heaven:
1080 x8AA fullscreen
quality ultra
tessellation: extreme

fps: 130.3
score: 3283

bench two: unigine heaven:
1080 x8AA fullscreen
quality ultra
tessellation: disabled

fps: 169.0
score: 4248

bench three: unigine valley:
1080 x8AA fullscreen
extreme hd

fps: 127.4
score: 5330

edit:
3dmark / firestrike 1.1: 27281 graphic score, 13637 physics, 7638 combined, 19386 total score

i tried googling but they're all over the place. all the results are MUCH better than my 970 sli's.

These are my Firestrike scores: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/8593860
I don't run the Unigine benchmarks any more so I can't help you there.
