i have seen it downclock before but its not anymore.
can anyone suggest why and how to resolve this issue

It should downclock and voltage be around 750-800 on idle. Are you sure there are no applications that demand even a little of the card? Also, did you overclocked your card via BIOS modification?

Check to make sure your power options in NVCP are not set to perfer maximum power. otherwise it will remain at that speed.
Also if you have a game set to perfer maximum power, it will not downclock to the lowest settings if the game is alt tabbed and open.

So if you're not having issues with your games running on adaptive power settings, i reccomend you keep it on that if you want the card to fully downclock to 100mhz.

Also if you have more than 1 screen this usually disables the lower powersaving options.

If all else fails, try a fresh install of drivers.

Hi guys installed my 2 Asus 970s today
Whent in heaven got first bench of 39.1 in 1400p max settings was getting 42 with 780ti classy.. Why is this seems a bit stuttery as well
Valley got 57.3, 49 with 780ti
Rome 2 max 1440p 780ti 44 970 SLI 67.9
Played crysis 2 in 60fps (my monitor limit) for 5 min
Shadow of mordor 60fps max ultra settings
Just really bad on heaven so far
Down loading 3d mark
My case is a atx so cards are close together
My temps max has been 75 on valley is this to high it is winter now,.. Thinking of retuning n getting 1 980? What you guys think?
post #11387 of 26263
The 980 is only 10% above the 970 in performance (OCd card vs OCd card). So returning them and getting a single 980 would be a huge step back performance wise.

Your card is getting hot because you have 0 gap between them, how is the upper card supposed to get its cold air from? I understand that's how your mobo is set, and really there's is no way to do it in a different way there. Maybe try to put some side fans blowing cool air right onto them. Either that or go watercooled.

I don't see any other solution that may help temps, because you got a hot sandwich there.

I would not have upgraded from a 780ti Classified unless I needed the additional gigabyte of VRAM or was going SLI, which would not be ideal in your system in its current configuration. 780ti to a 980 is not a particularly big jump up. Whether it's worth it is entirely up to you.

1080p, I know, but...



It surprises me that the 970 surpasses the 780ti by such a large margin, even with the overclocks and the stock 780ti.

Compare that to Guru3D's 1440p review in Crysis 3. An overclocked Classy 780ti will not be very far behind a G1 980.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_980_g1_gaming_review,17.html


Also, MSI 980 4G:



eVGA Classified 780ti:



Classified 780ti beats MSI 980.


Unless you were going SLI 970/980/780ti/290/290x/780, I would not have recommended replacing the Classy 780ti. The extra gigabyte of RAM is of course very handy, so if that was your incentive then fair enough, but otherwise it was not necessary. And to be honest, 1GB extra isn't exactly a lot. I've seen some games draw even more than 4GB of VRAM at higher resolutions and higher AA settings.

I was just itching to upgrade and though the 970s with all the bench marks would help me a lot @ 1440p and the 1 gb of ram... It's a lot faster just the temps I think could be a problem
Got 2 noctuas 140mm 2000rpm fans in frount intake set to 70% max 97dcbb2728142aec68baee7bf1addce1.jpg
I got a week to return my cards so mite just do that..
If I got the 980 I could over kick it very high or go back to 780ti
Just got 15416 on fire strike7a77a75ec6d6438d1a60a33a4fd460bd.jpg
What's a good test to test temps?

When I am wanting to test temps I let Unigene Valley run for a while. It tends to simulate a gaming environment the best for me.
