I ran 1620 for three days when I got my card. I forgot to flash back to stock...

if your gpu is stable at 1585mhz I think thats great, like I said mine at 1605 is stable in benchmarks but is only stable in some games and not others
so I don't run mine at 1605 in games.

Not sure if its been proven, but people have said the way Maxwell (or was it GDDR5?) works is it will fix errors it comes accross, which will cause lower fps/scores. So a higher clocked card, doesn't always give better scores for this reason. Lower more stable/fully stable clocks will give better scores cuz there is no errors to correct on the GPU side. The awful score you speak of might mean its not fully stable at 1605. Even if it is fine with every game you play, at 100% load (hard for a game to stress this much due to ever changing environments) it may not be.

yes I have heard that too. all other benchmarks 1605 is stable and get good scores, firestrike is just eh.
also I'm running an old X58 pcie 2.0 system.

While this was written before Maxwell I'm sure it still holds some truth.

"Stable" is a relative term. A lot of things may seem stable, until just the right situation injects itself. BOOM.....you're like "What the....". We are all just still lottery winners or losers(silicon). I'm not implying that anyone has a "loser" card. I think all of the 970's are able to hold their own@1080p(1440 in some situations). These cards OC very well for the most part. The bios' on the other hand left a lot to be desired. I can look back at some of my Firestrike runs and see just how bad the original bios was. OMG. Horrible. It made me nervous to run GPU-Z. Looked like a rainbow on my screen. Now, nothing but grey when not in use. biggrin.gif

I've tested in PCIe 2.0 and the difference was maybe 1-2fps in most benchmarks.

I just found this.....this was the first run of Valley. Out of the box. CPU was i5-3470.



EDIT: Added Valley screenshot.

Just wanted to ask a couple of things about the general situation with 970's, in particular gigabyte G1's.

Ages ago there was a problem when running them in SLi where you had to set one card at a higher core than the other in order for both cards to get anything like the same/correct voltage, this as far as I can see is still the case?

G1's also didn't seem to accept the overvolt from afterburner or any other OC software I tried. I assume there is still no work around for this either (other than custom BIOS)?
post #19876 of 26262
In a german Forum there is a guy (freezy94) who reches 1753MHZ COre clock with his 970 StriX with stock cooler, bios and cooling. Everytime, not only in short benchmarks. Amazing. Asic is 96%!!!.
Thats what i call golden chip:

You just need a custom bios to match the voltage/clock.. something like 1500mhz 1.22v should work just fine ..

check my Sig for custom bios thumb.gif

I'm running a stock bios on my G1 and it accepts and raises voltage with afterburner, not as much as if the bios was edited.
I can put my G1 at the Gigabyte factory oc settings and only move the voltage slider in afterburner to +50 and my core clock
will boost to 1405mhz from the factory oc boost of 1329mhz. voltage at +50 is 1.262

mine boosts from 1342 to 1455 without a bios mod.....For some reason, I don't remember having these throttling issues with my GM206's in SLI

will boost to 1405mhz from the factory oc boost of 1329mhz. voltage at +50 is 1.262

I'm going to have to look into this more tomorrow when I've got time, but I just tried adding +35mV and it seems that it's adding now. This was definitely not the case about 6 months ago when I gave up trying to clock these things because the drivers had all sorts of problems. Some of those problems still remain, as I say, if I leave them stock they both clock to about 1366 but one of them gets far less voltage than the other at 100% utilization. Fixing it required setting the top card to +40MHz on the core to make them both boost to about 1400 with one card getting 1.2V and the other about 1.212V (not perfect but better than at stock where the voltage discrepancy was ridiculous)

What is the stock voltage on these G1's meant to be at full load?

Is there an consensus on what a "safe" voltage is for cards like this? I want to get the voltages even before I start even thinking about overclocking. Fortunately it seems that this is now possible through afterburner unlike the last time I tried.
