We'll know more when he gets his replacement card from EVGA.

I am nearly certain that my Issue is a below average- average GPU chip. And the I THINK idea that my card/chip will not allow more than 1.275 volts.

I think that maybe something on his card is no allowing the Wattage he thinks hes getting, and is being reported by software. There is something on that card, be it the power phases or some "wattage regulator" that is not allowing him get the wattage he is trying to force through those cables. I understand you can send more watts through 6 pins and 8 pins than what they are supposed to send. Something on the card is " not haveing it". Its saying I wont allow that, no matter what you have set your Bios to. Just a guess

Original bios I had all sorts of issues, according to GPU-Z. I have since eliminated them all*.

I am at 295w. 110+110(Pins)+75 pcie. TDP 260(100%) 295(113%). I think my PSU is 744w(62amp) on the 12v rail.




I still get a PWR perfcap in *Catzilla!! Just the one test. It bothers me, but I'm not going to touch it again. lol

I set his bios up with a 310 watt power limit just like mine has, and bam...power limit issue gone.

I do know that if I set my power limits in the bios to under 293 watts, I get a PWR perf cap. /shrug I just can't imagine a scenario where EVGA would put different parts on cards with the same pcb, coming off the same line, to restrict them further than another. It just wouldn't make good business sense.

Are you sure that you and him have the same PCB? One way to tell is can you both buy the same back plate? I read that the Best Buy card he has is based off an older PCB revision. I did read the threads that the guy you were talking with and disagreeing with posted. I can't confirm but I think that there has got to be a significant deference between your FTW and his Best buy card. Check out if you guys can use the same back plate. If not, its a different PCB. And that means different hardware "limiters" or whatever.

The way I understand it, is that the Best Buy card is ACX 2.0...just like my cards. It's going to be either the ACX 2.0 or the ACX 2.0+. Well, unless it's the reference SC model pcb. But I'm not sure how that'd work exactly..... In which case, he isn't going to get that card back from the RMA anyway.

Look, when they limit the 6 and 8 pins intakes on the cards they do it for a reason. How much sense does it make to have all these different cards with different 6 and 8 pin connectors and NOT have some hardware limits attached to that choice?

If the BIOS is the only thing limiting what the card will accept from different cables, why would they even make these cards with different pin configureations?
post #20056 of 26275
I just checked the EK site. The 3979 (Best Buy model) uses the same water block as the rest of the ACX 2.0 models. It's the same.

Also some links indicated that the Best Guy card was actually built on the ACX 1.0 revision PCB.

What about back plate cooler? This is going ton the idea that just because a cooler or plate fits more than one card that both cards have the same exact hardware on the card. This is surely not always correct.

I'm not qualified to answer that....lol
