Trying to decide if I want to WC my ole 970. Just trying to figure out if I want to spend the money (about $150, full cover block and backplate), or just invest in a better GPU.....

I'd sit on the cash until we have a better idea of a time-frame and the specs of the GTX 980 TI. It's not a question of if it is going to happen, but when.

I haven't had this DSR issue people are referring to and have been using it in WoW and TESO to run 4k, and in TW2 and SoM to run 1600p . They seem pretty solid, I have no problem recommending them.

Edit: My cards exhibit a bit of coil whine as well, but it only happens in uncapped FPS scenarios like benchmarks. I run all of my games with vsync and the coil whine is completely absent.


I got my cars from bestbuy and the whine is even with vsync on ... when I say it's bad I mean it's bad it's really getting me upset now I have to take another trip to bestbuy might even end up getting another card with the same problems.

What type of Vram does your card have?

It seems a lot of the Hynix won't overclock as well as the Samsung. I have my Vram modded in the bios to run @8000. I've been able to run it at 8100+, but it really didn't seem to affect the performance as much as I thought it would.

I used both to find the common ground then modded my bios so I don't have to mess with MSIAB. Not that there is anything wrong with using it.

Use the benchmarks to find the "sweet spot" for your card, then try some of your favorite games. You can still make adjustments if you need to in MSIAB.

I own a r9 290 and 290x I just lurk the 970 the ad because I was considering purchasing one for my fiance's build. But both may cards have hynix memory and they will overclock to 1600 at 1080p 60hz but only to 1500 at 1440p 96hz.

I have a R9 270x(4gbVram) in my other computer. I didn't really spend a lot of time trying to OC it. Maybe I will and see how well it does. smile.gif

Hello guys
I think after updating my 970 G1 to F13 bios it OC less then befor either i messed up somethin when i flashed her or its juts been like this i even tried with older nvidia drivers coz i heard .88 are not very good. Been teseting with Shadow of Mordor and i've been getting some freezes. I think i could easily get to 1560 on core and somethin like 300-350 on memory. But now only 1520 core and 300 memory.
It would be very lame to have messed up my gpu sadsmiley.gif

If that's the case then just flash the old BIOS back. I flashed using the same BIOS anything I get more OC headroom.

I don\t see anywhere F10 DD and DP files else i'd do it. I didn\t back it up my mistake.

My question is has performance dropped in benchmarks. I know that if I clock up to something like 1540 my benchmarks go down.
