Hey guys, I think i'm going to RMA the 81% ASIC 970 SC. EVGA offered to "upgrade" me to a SSC and that seems to have better power delivery, VRM cooling and dual-bios. Downside is that it seems coil whine in the 9xx series is pretty common so the new one may have it too.

Out of curiosity which GTX 970s are known to be voltage unlocked from factory? for example my 970 SC was locked at 1.2v.

Thanks

Uh...the SC isn't voltage locked. It'll go up to 1.256v to 1262v in the stock bios, just like the rest of the EVGA ACX cards. **Unless you got the reference design with the blower cooler**, then I think a bios mod would get you above 1.2v.

I'd think you a fool if you RMA'd an 81% ASIC card...just sayin.

I concur, unless you are having power delivery issues.and the green pwr perfcap. None of my cards have ever been above 76% ASIC.

When you say in the stock bios, are you referring to using a bios editor such as maxwell tweaker or do you mean actually running the stock bios.

Cause running the stock bios the slider in afterburner doesn't change the voltage reported by gpu-z.

Unless... is 1.2v the highest the sensors are able to record and I would need to measure it manually with a multimeter?

Do you have an ACX 2.0 SC version, or the blower style reference SC?

GPUz will read voltage as high as 1.275v. I've never seen an ACX card locked down at 1.2v. Get a copy of your bios, zip it, and drop it here.

Here, I fixed it for you. It was set at 1.212v in the bios. I upped the max voltage to 1.262. The slider should function now, and I also went ahead and raised the TDP to 330 watts, and the power limit to 250 watts at 100% and 330 watts at 132%.

The stock air cooler should be able to handle the voltage just fine, just watch the temps and create a custom fan curve.
