The 1080 acx 3.0 will be a completely different beast. I wonder if I could use the leftover 970 for physx or let the 1080 handle it? Then sell the other 970.

After about 1500 on the core, the returns start to fall off though. SLI is another beast to tackle. Thankfully, I had done enough testing to get a nice stable OC that I was able to apply to both cards without having to test the second card a millions time. My second card has different Vram and the ASIC is lower, but it holds my everyday OC of 1506/8000 @1.225v. If I up the voltage the second card just doesn't respond like the first. The first one I could bench around 1600/8300. The second card my max was about 1550 or so. The Vram doesn't want to OC at all.

Overall, I very happy, and see no need to upgrade to AMD/nVidia soon. I don't play that many games, and the ones I do....my SLI set up runs them all fine. biggrin.gif (Same can be said with the CPU, but I am looking forward to see what Zen offers up)

I hope you enjoy tinkering with yours as I have with mine. In fact, with my next GPU upgrade, I hope that I will be able to have as much fun as I've had with these cards. thumb.gif

I am, thx smile.gif

Even though my card has a low ASIC, not sure how low but was low according to GPU-Z, it seems to be able to do 1500MHz+ on clock but not sure i can get the 8000MHz+ on memory, not without changing voltage a bit, maybe some +25mV, kumbuster has proved me this almost 100%, also with furmark, both freeze PC during test if i get memory close to 8000MHz without changing voltage control, strangely neither valley/heaven's or firestrike bench break down i can do 1500clock/8000mem and they don't complain about the stability, not sure if it's that kumbuster and furmark are more demanding then 3Dmark valley/heaven and firestrike bench. Thinking of testing with S.A.N.D.R.A. sys software, i usually trust in it's reports.

Probably won't be testing this during the week, weekend is more lightly.

According to what i can check, i'm at work atm and can't check men chip on the card itself, i have revA1 of 2014 manufacturing and everything points it being a samsung mem thumb.gif will check when i get home, don't know how i forgot to check that xD i already knew about the different mem supplier/manufacturer.

GPU-Z will give your ASIC, as well as the memory maker. I don't use Furmark or Kombuster. For stability, run Valley looped for a hour or so. Then game.....then game some more. Folding@home is also good for checking stability on the core speed. It doesn't ramp up the Vram unless you mod the bios though. Everyone has their own way of testing their clocks. The best way is to use some benchmarks, then play the games you normally play. The benchmarks are good for finding the max clocks though. The voltage and power are issues with the 970's, at least when trying to push higher clocks.

It's all good though. thumb.gif

Hmmm folding@home...need to check that, seen it a bit all over the forums but never looked it up. Valley for 1h, sure that is doable, gaming not so much. Only games i got installed that demand anythjing of the card are Diablo3 (running with DSR on) and UT4 pre-alpha (which is still in development and isn't fully using the unreal engine) so i'm limited in that aspect. Could install some other old games like far cry 1 and the sorts, it's what i got ^_^

Throw what you can at it....lol

Valley/Heaven/Firestrike can all be bumped up in resolution to tax the cars. I've also used a Final Fantasy benchmark that was free. I will see if I can find you a link.

It really doesn't matter what you use, as long as it is loading the card on the core.

Note: You can also run Valley in Windowed mode, and open more than one.

Hey, if you ever need help setting it up just go over into the folding section of the site. biggrin.gif Us folding peeps are a friendly bunch over there.

Thx again for the pointer smile.gif Didn't know about FFxiv bench and multiple instances of valley when in window mode. Only ran valley in windowed mode when i would do changes in afterburner and wanted to see any bad reaction as valley was running, then i would run a few loops of realbench, valley and kombuster. Will check if putting more then one instance breaks my current OC settings since i will be doubling the load on core, that sounds better as a make or break OC test.

Will check if putting more then one instance breaks my current OC settings since i will be doubling the load on core, that sounds better as a make or break OC test.

It really doesn't matter what you throw at it. A good mix of benchmarks and gaming are the best way to go about it though. Drivers will also play a role in things. Some driver sets really gimped the performance over other sets. Again, depending on whether a game needs the newest driver or not, dictates what set you might have to use. Valley is good for finding your Vram limit. It seems to love Vram over clock. Firestrike is good for finding core clock limit. At least that is how I've always looked at it.

Idd, sounds good to me as well.

Will probably do the following; 1h valley, 1h furmark, 5h realbench and finish with firestrike for a result. Will check the other bench's you pointed out as useful and perhaps switch out furmark for one of them. The 5h realbench is sort of a requirement for me to test the system completely, because i also have a OC'ed CPU (@x46) and above mobo controller spec (2133MHz) RAM @3000MHz T2 (which i'm looking at timings to also improve/OC that above RAM kit spec with T1).

At this time my current system settings are stable and tested with several stress tests and bench's and i'm almost 100% happy with things as they are, now just need to test GPU max OC and fiddle with RAM timings yet again to be completely happy with the system i thought out and am almost finished, still need a few more things as external PSU and some more SSD's, but enough of my rambles off topic biggrin.gif

Thx again smile.gif
