Literally no need for this and it makes you look like a hypocrit as you once told me in this very thread to stop acting in a similar manner. If the other user has put a ACX2.0+ card in SLI with a non + card then there might be some substance to what he's saying just like when you said my MSI might not be compatible until I used DifferentSLI, if we could get someone to test it out it would be educational for the thread too.

I hear ya. Did you ever get it exchanged, or did you keep the one we worked on?
I don't care for the whole boost thing...lol For the most part, the card is on, or it's off. With boost disabled, the card can still throttle itself when it doesn't need full power. biggrin.gif

I send it backed, but next time I am just going to sell it on Ebay, wondering how to safely sell it without getting rip off though..

Man I am just sad I've barely even used the GPU at all.

Coil whine bugging you? On the replacement card? A good way to reduce coil whine is to leave it folding for a day or two, you can cover the coil with nail polish too but tbh it never bothered me enough to send back after I left it folding. My MSI card has coil whine too but it's not as bad.

I don't know man my build is so quiet without the thing, it feels like I am at peace with this 750ti right now.
Hell I even overclocked it..... and didn't crash... AMAZING. doesn't even go above 50c while doing benchmarks neither...

The coil whine didn't annoy me the 2nd time, the first time it did.. it was REALLY bad, but the fans man.. 40% and I could hear them through my headphones.. Meanwhile I can only hear my exhaust fans on my case with the 750ti at 40%.

tl;dr: peace and quiet.

hey i figured out gigabyte's confusing secret fan speed formula haha. lachen.gif

just multiply the number by a given CPU tempurature and it gives you the fan speed percent.....such a dumb design, but also sort of effective i guess.

so if you set it to 1.5 "whatever value crap it says" /*C and your CPU is running at 25c your fan speed is 37.5%, and will go up actively with each degree. so by 65c you at 97.5% fan speed. i can confirm it does work too lol thumb.gif its super nice haveing the fans dead silent when idle and then blazing loud when your under load.

I played those games too and i liked them a lot. Its a different story with Dirt rally though, its a game only for experience drivers because its very very hard to control the cars compare to other racing games.

Hi guys,

I was having a weird issue with my MSI Gaming 4G 970 card. During games the GPU usage of the card would spike down to 0% for half a second and then come back up to 99%. I modded my bios because I thought it might be hitting a power wall and down throttling but no. Currently I am using a modded bios with everything stock except voltage has been increased to 1.25V constant on the card and Power Limits have been raised to 280W.

My card never even hits 65C on load so it can't be throttling because of that. In GPU-Z reports and everything else I've used to test it out, the only thing that changes is the GPU usage, itll randomly spike down to like 0-20% values severely killing FPS and then itll come back up to 99%. Nothing else changes, my clocks, voltages etc all remain the same.

Is there anything else that I can try? I've been going crazy over this, I can post GPU-Z logs or anything else if someone wants to take a look.

Have any of you faced the same issue? I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong with this card.
post #23760 of 26263
Hi all. First of all sorry for my English.

I need help, i have a Gigabyte GTX 970 Gaming G1 (Elpida) and i need the last updated stock BIOS to reflash my card with Nvflash.

Can someone help me?
Best regards!
