Just going back over the bios files I've edited for people in facebook groups. A couple of 970SC, a 970SSC, a few 970 FTWs, a couple of Galax 970s...ew. A 980 STRIX, a 980 Classy, a 980ti Classy..both on air...ew. And a couple of G1s.

The only card I haven't been able to work around the power limit problem on is Death's card.....I don't get it.

Perhaps there is some type of issue that is preventing it from running properly. If he had a Bridge, he could sli them real quick before sending them back.....wink.gif

The power delivery goes through the shunts....which *should* be the same, but....now I'm not so sure.

It almost has to be though, because I just checked, and the guy I helped out on facebook about a month ago was an SC model ACX card, and the power limit settings I set up in the bios (310 watts) cleared up his power limit issues. He wasn't pushing a whole lot of clock though...and didn't change the voltage settings at all. But it was running at 1.25v with KBoost enabled in PCX.

Well Toms Hardware did a micro-second review of the 970, as far as wattage, voltage, and temps where focused. This was an offical Toms review, not some noobs like me. At max load these cards draw WAY MORE than 300 watts in THE MICROSECONDS SCALE. . Its the Maxwell architecture that allows for these fluctuations. Lets just see what he gets with the new card. Might be that EVGA sends him a "Golden Sample" just because EVGA Jake is monitoring this thread. smile.gif

His scores are pretty good, yeah. But the power limit issue is annoying as hell. If the core wasn't dropping clocks, it'd be worlds better, because then he could add more core clock. lol He's running near 14k graphics score with a core clock that drops constantly...he'd have a top 10 single GPU score if it'd run 1550+ all the time without PWR throttling.

I dunno....I'd be sending it back too. If the bios mod I did on mine hadn't worked, they'd have been traded up for 980s.

Hmmm...if they're drawing that much power though, why would NVIDIA gimp them all so hard with lowered power limits? Were they that desperate to get a "low power" GPU out there? Not like AMD was any kind of competition in that segment of the market.... /boggle

I'm glad an EVGA rep is monitoring this thread. Maybe not every 3979-kb is "bad" , but something is up with mine though.
