How are you even getting the volatge to adjust using AB? I have G1's as well and the voltage slider in AB does nothing at all for me. What version of AB are you using?[/quote]

Evga 970 card and yeah i have MSI AB and the voltage slider does not work for me either. Evga Precesion X does however. I suggest you try useing Gigabytes overclocking utility to adjust voltage.

Trying different voltage and frequencies can help. Its a vibration, caused by these voltages and frequencies in range of human hearing that causes the whine. Changing the voltage and or frequency can push the vibrations out of hearing. Give it try.

Is there a Coolmaster AIO that directly fits a GTX 970 like Ive read/heard for the AMD GPUs?

Or is something like the NZXT G10 Kraken required?

corsairs bracket is for reference amd 290(x) as far as I know.

The nzxt bracket is the only choice on the nvidea side. You could just mount it using zip ties as an alternative as well.

Meh, EVGA precision doesn't work for the voltage adjustment either. I assume this card has some sort of lock in it that stops voltage being adjusted. I wouldn't mind but the cards aren't even running their correct stock voltages.

Example:

You have your voltage at 1.300v. AB/GPU-Z/ect. may only show 1.750v, even though you know that your card is running at 1.300v.

I think before I modded my bios, it would maintain a voltage of 1.225v maybe....it would boost to 1.250v, but would throttle back down to 1.225v. This would throttle the core down as well. I upped the core voltage in MBT to 1.256, and now I am running great. 1556/8000@1.256v Max.

Again, every card is a little different, and it depends on what you want to do with your card.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks Hequaqua. I understand I need to edit my bios for higher voltages. I guess I just wanted to confirm what the max stock voltage was and confirm/verify what the max voltage in HWMon and GPUz will show (if they are accurate). Some cards only show up to a certain voltage in monitor programs even though it is truly getting more voltage (as you explain above after you modded your bios or like how my old 7950 acted).

My plan is to see how much core and mem I can get on stock bios, then flash modded bios and push further. Right now, I’m only playing with core on the stock bios.

I’m pretty sure I am at max core (assuming my voltage isn’t actually going up anymore).

I got up to +160mhz on the core with voltage slider at +0mV (1.218v). Once I went up to +180mhz, I needed more voltage. With voltage slider moved to +20mV (1.243v which is +0.025v difference), it was better but not there yet. I then moved the slider to +40mV (still 1.243v) and that did it. But, since the slider was greater and stability improved while the voltage reading in HWMon and GPUz stayed the same, I wondered (and still kinda do) if the voltage was increasing but not reading any higher. So I asked the question. I played around with +200mhz and +60mv but didn't get enough time to test if it was stable. Even at +60mv, the voltage never reads above 1.243v. What do you think?

The screenie below shows a short run of Heaven with AB settings and other info including max core voltage.

Interesting. I’m using AB v4.1.0 and have some range on the slider. Granted after a certain point, before the slider itself maxxes out, I will reach max voltage on my stock bios. I haven’t used Gig’s utility short of opening it up and looking. I prefer AB.

What card are you using? I've got 2 gigabyte G1's and even leaving this SLi voltage bug aside, I think the cards are limited to 1.2V in the BIOS. I'm no expert when it comes to tinkering with the BIOS editor, but it would explain why the AB voltage slider does nothing for me.

A Gig 970 G1. Are you saying you have no adjustment range on the slider or that the slider just doesn't do anything if you move it? The slider for me changed my max voltage from 1.218v to 1.243v (+0.025v).

I have a stock bios still and have range on the Core Voltage slider (as seen in the screenie). Again, the stock voltage was 1.218v and after adjusting the slider to +20mV and then again to +40mV, the monitor programs maxxed out to 1.243v but I suspected I got more volts than that with the slider at +40mV. I believe every card is slightly different on what the max stock core voltage is but it should be the same for all stock G1's, I think. Again, with the stock bios (no edits) and AB v4.1.0, I had range on the slider.

I have read plenty that the card maxxes out at 1.243v but my stability improved after going from +20mV to +40mV. So, simple question to other G1 users who actually played around on there stock bios (lol) is/was; Does the card actually max out at 1.243v or does it still go higher to maybe 1.275v or something, on stock bios? Or was my increase in stability just a hallucination wink.gif
