Definitely nore that enough to power the 970. I had to ask cos you dont have a rig on your sig. wink.gif

Then 2 options left:

-Bad or loose cable shorting.
-970 is fried already and causing short to ground when powered.
post #23112 of 26187
Yes indeed, point well made - I do need to sort my sig out.

Thank you loads for the assistance.

It would appear the card is faulty - I tried it without the extenders and just the stock PSU cables - still nothing. Tried it with different stock cables - still nothing.

Tried my old card with stock cables and extenders included and it worked fine both times.

I've initiated the RMA - many thanks again. I will confirm either way if the replacement card is a success.

Hello everyone! I've had my MSI 970 for quite a while now, but I just recently started to overclock it. I was wondering how good this OC was (note: I'm still very new, and I haven't actually reached the point where I started seeing artifacts/crashes/bugs yet, so I could get it even higher, but for some reason I'm scared, LOL)

Do worry, you can't really hurt anything on the stock bios. You will be limited by voltage/power. What you want to do is run GPU-Z while you are benchmarking or gaming. You will see what is limiting your higher clocks. As I said you will probably limited by power and voltage. Perfcap is the one you want to look at. You can grab a screenshot and post it here, then we can help point you in the right direction.

Here is my card showing that it is limited by power(example): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

If you want to get more out of your card, you will more than likely need to mod and flash a new bios. I have the MSI GTX970 Gaming 4g card and on my own bios. Love it.

Take a look at this thread, it will help you understand a bit better:

NOTE: You may want to use rig builder on OCN. It will let everyone know what type of hardware you are using. It posts it at the bottom of all your postings. You can see mine down below. It is really helpful.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Most everyone here will help answer them.

Good luck!! thumb.gif

EDIT: You can put the sliders for voltage and power all the way up, then find your max stable clocks. Then go from there. What type of Vram does your card have? GPU-Z will tell you when you first open it: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

With stock vBios running at 5.0ghz on my devil's canyon, here is where I am on FS Ultra - 5611 for SLI 970, once I put them under water with my CPU, I'll push the voltages further and really test the limits.

Thank you for the help!

Here are my results (I paused in the middle, thus the dip)

My VRAM type is Elpida.

I don't think I'm ready to unlock the voltage, as I don't think I want to risk it at this time.

Looks pretty good. thumb.gif

About 1525 is a decent OC on air really. Past about 1550 or so you really don't see a big gain.

Was that with the voltage set all the way up? Just curious.

EDIT: Your welcome btw. wink.gif

I don't think I changed the voltage. Is that safe to do without bricking my card? I also can't seem to find it anywhere on Afterburner (unless I'm blind)
post #23120 of 26187
You may have to unlock it first.



No, it won't brick the card. The max voltage is set in the bios. If you haven't modded the bios, you will never hit the max. The cards are locked at 1.31v anyway.
