The gpu is stable at 1566... But I can't get stable mem

Yeah Vrel and Vop. I guess I'll mod the bios and see if I can get more out of it. 1600 would be awesome

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.





I guess Im lucky my memory goes to 8164

So, I decided to test something out.
So many people were complaining about ACU performing horribly, even at 1080.

And alot of other people saying gaming at 4k is practically impossible with a single GPU.

So I decided to make a single GPU GTX 970 test recording of Assassin's Creed Unity at 4k resolution.
All I've done is turned off AA because it's completely useless at 4k, and changed Ambient Occlussion to SSAO from HBAO.
The result was extremely better than what I had expected...

It seems pretty fluid. I'll definitely try that later.

What really improved my ACU performance was cutting the internet. Game was very "stuttery" before, just block it on firewall, BOOM, it's fluid.

Don't ask me why, because I don't know and it doesn't make any sense. It just works.

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.

I've been doing ok, I think because i can lower AA in most titles (Which is very demanding) because the higher res screen makes things look smoother to begin with.

but that said SLI would give that little extra push to manage a solid 60 in everything out there. and give me headroom should i decide to go to a 21:9 or a 144hz GSYNC screen.

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....

For 1440p, a single 970 is fine, but it's not ideal. A 980 is about right, or two 970's.

There is a massive difference between impossibility and 60 FPS. wink.gif It's 60 FPS on any game at Ultra settings that people claim cannot be met on a single GPU.

If you are curious about how fast GTX 970 is in SLI feel free to look at my review.
