@Zuhl3156 wow you got nice screenies. Your real folding numbers are way less the 1mil PPD




If you really want to get 1mil PPD from 2 980's then you need to be folding in Linux.
If you think you got mad folding skills come on over to TC instead of folding for EVGA Bucks yessir.gif

I have recoreded 1.2 million in a single day with just my two GTX-980 boards.


I didn't mean to hurt or offend you I'm sorry.

No offense taken. Sorry I reacted like that. I know I can't come close to what you guys are putting out. The last time I Folded 24/7 was for the Time Zone Challenge and my daily average was around 875,000 ppd. I am the first in a long line of cancer victims that has a chance to fight back and I do what I can afford. Hopefully my maternal ancestors are smiling down on me for avanging their slow and painful death from stomach cancer. I am getting up in my years and fully expect the same diagnosis. I have an Endoscopy scheduled for next week. I am just waiting for the doctors to drop the bombshell.

I repasted the evga 980 last night and the TIM that was previously used by them was absolutely caked on. It was dried out and very apparently they used some cheap stuff. Replaced it with gelid gc extreme and temps under 40% fan dropped 8 degrees. That's crazy. Switched the fans over to aggressive profile and OCability increased from 15XX to 1900 completely stable using max voltage max power limit. Running benchmarks and auto fans temps stayed around 68C. I'm also running memory at 8Ghz. I'm sure I could get a bit more since there are 0 signs of artifacts however I have decided not to spend the money on the thermal pads since the amount of OC I was shooting for has been achieved without it. All in all the repast job took me no more than 10 minutes total (4 screws) and the difference was very much worth it. Just thought I would share my experience for others that may want to give it a go. FWIW I also repasted my 970 G1 and temps did drop but only around 4 degrees since the card tends to run much cooler anyways.

I agree that they use some cheap TIM trying to pad their profits. When I reapplied the TIM to my EVGA GTX-680 I got a 8 to 10 degree drop in temps too.

How easy is it to remove the heat sync on EVGA cards? I'm going to start migrating components to my new computer cases soon, so while I'm at it, I might as well reapply TIM to my processor/ GPUs.

EDIT: I see it only involved a few screws. Disregard tongue.gif

What's crazy is how much more stable it was OCed. I had it running a loop on Heaven for 25 minutes at 1600Mhz. Really thought it was going to be stable but eventually it did crash. I'm sure if I sacrifice memory a bit I can get 1600 stable now. The difference isn't that make as far as FPS but every little bit help to achieve 60fps constantly in witcher 3.

Question: Ok so after a lot of reading I've found that may claim that their overclocks are more stable if they do not touch the voltage slider. While it may appear this way after a lot of time playing around I can overclock to say +130 on the core at stock voltage. This could bump up the boost clock to say 1520Mhz. If I adjust the voltage slider I found that as voltage increases so does the max boost clock without adjusting the clock at all. For those that say they are more stable without touching voltage most likely this is due to the chip clocking higher than previously.

There also seems to be some debate to if max voltage can hurt the card. My understanding is that if you do not reflash the vbios then the cards vbios will auto limo voltage to ensure that you can't fry the card. If that's so then is it at all harmful to run max voltage all the time? I mean why not?

Yeah there are 4 larger screws on the back with compression springs on them. These are the only screws holding the sink to the chip. After removal it slides right off but be careful as there are two connectors on either side that must also be disconnected to remove the sink. Attaching the sink correctly is a bit tricky since the wires are very short but once you reconnect the wires the rest is a breeze.

Thanks for the walkthrough thumb.gif
