This particular trick will not get you more voltage, but rather high power limit.

1500 can be ran as low as 1.1v and as high as 1.25v minimum

you can get the card up to 1.3v in bios, it's about 100mhz more

Sorry guys on my phone so it's hard to qoute.

So my power says it's using 110% and voltage 1.2 I assume that I'm running into a voltage barrier. I see where I made my mistake thinking that mod would allow for more voltage.

2. I thought the strix were voltage locked so that even if I model the bios it wouldn't do anything?

Am I forever stuck at 1.2v? or do I need to get out some conductive paste and "paint" a resistor?

Easiest and safest (relatively speaking) thing to do would be extract your stock BIOS, and following the plethora of threads on the subject (on mobile so can't link them at the moment, one is in the driver's section of NVIDIA graphics cards), modify it to increase voltage, and flash using NVFlash to your card. Make sure to keep a backup of the stock one. You could raise your voltage with that method. However, I believe there is still a hard cap even through BIOS editing on these cards in terms of voltage. I forgot what the number is though. I could be wrong about that last statement.

Open GPU-Z and look at the Sensors tab --> PerfCap Reason. While maxing out card (read: in a bench or game), watch the PerfCap Reason bar and mouse-over what is causing your cap. It might not even be voltage, you might be hitting the power limit/TDP, which again is an easy fix in BIOS editing. If it's the TDP, it will show green for PerfCap Reason, if it's voltage there's two different entries that are two different colors, I can't remember the colors off the top of my head. But like I said, you can mouse-over to see while it's maxed out.

What is everyone's opinion of the best 970 currently available?

I have gotten a little frustrated with my EVGA SSC cards. They seemed like they were running hotter and hotter for some reason. Before I would never go above 73c with my top card and last night it was going above 80c. I am not sure if it is a fan issue or what. Also, EVGA already discontinued the SSC model I bought (04G-2975-KR) and replaced it with a different SSC model. I called and talked to Newegg and they are allowing me to return them for store credit. I am going to be replacing them with different 970s.

I have the Strix. You should be able to bump the power limit up to 120% to get a little more out of it. The Strix is restricted to 1.2v but all 970s are without bios modding. I haven't modded mine and don't plan two but there are some people on the Asus forums how've done it and a few that have posted they've tried in the 'flash' thread on OCN.

Honestly I wouldn't expect a heap more with the Strix's lower TDP, but trust me, their numbers are very competitive.

I really like my MSI Gaming 4G one.. I'm getting a pretty solid/stable 1504 on it OCd at 66 degrees. And silent the entire while. Idle? 35 degrees (Which is roughly the ambient temp in my room so...) and the fans are shut off...

----

Side note, Is going to a 970 SLI rig a good/bad idea for a 1440p setup? Would i be better off sticking with a single? I've been down the SLI route before and wasnt thrilled with it...but it was more to do with everything -demanding- 4gb of VRAM all of a sudden that it didnt work out. Now that thats not an issue I was just thinking of pushing my rig up a bit....

I can't vote in favor or contrary to SLi because I never had a SLi system (will be running 2x 970 soon). But I don't buy that overkill thing. I have been playing these new games (FC4, RYSE, AC:U) and I can't max out those in 1080p with a FPS that I feel confortable with (Imagine you with a 1440p screen). Obviously, they still look tremendously beautiful with ALMOST everything maxed out, but that talk that "one 970 is everything you need to max out everything today" is nonsense.

With the ASUS card don't you use GPU Tweak to allow it to go to 1.26v? You don't mod it and don't use AB/Precision..
