Which, usually doesn't work very well if you're adding voltage. lol

G'luck! Let us know your results!

I'd also be interested in this "modification" made to AB.....and, can you give it out to others? I know a LOT of STRIX owners that would kill for voltage control....

Agreed I've been there and battled with it myself and it isn't just core temp you need to worry about its also how hot your ram chips get. You need to keep these cards cold as much as possible they hate heat and voltage will only do so much the scaling is quite poor at least that's what kingpin and the likes say even when they have their cards under LN2.

Well some sad news.... My card didn't blow up but I've started to have a probably that's grown into my gpu not displaying anymore. Started probably earlier this week. Nothing changed except new nvidia drivers and a few bios flashes...the gpu wouldn't display in HDmi so I've tried to get that to work, in the process going back to dvi has created issues, sometimes when I boot it won't display a signal... So I have to plug it into the motherboard, shut down, unplug the psu, plug it back in, and then it finally boots the gpu. That was easier, it was good till late last night, with no overvolt I can no longer get the gpu to post. Like at all. I've tried everything. So I figured, heck it may be the coollaboratory liquid ultra that I've got as thermal paste. So I took my entire system apart and cleaned the clu completely. Some did look close to the caps but I'm pretty sure none got on it. So this time instead of using electrical tape I went with nail polish. Put that on, redid the clu and still nothing. I almost feel like it's my psu now. I get 12,22v on the 12v line and the white light goes on with the gpu also. When I first turn it on the fans spin for a split second then go into the passive mode. I almost feel like it could be bricked bios over time??? Either way i haven't been able to get the card to post and I'm running out of ideas. This royally sucks...

$89.99?

No thanks.

I can get a refurb Corsair for $50 or less.

But thanks for the suggestion!!

I've thought about getting the RX480. I think I'm going to hold off and ride my 970's until the big chips drop, and the dust settles. I only play a few games, and they are serving me well.

We are still waiting for the actual numbers on the 480 though. I think AMD has hit the right price for a lot of people who have older cards, or limited budgets though. I'll guess we'll know more in a few more days when they hit the street.

One a different note.....

I got bored today, and thought I would run Valley/Heaven/Firestrike at 1440p and see the numbers. I updated the driver benchmark sheets that I have been keeping. I only went back I think 10 sets of drivers. Firestrike no longer gives you a valid score on the older drivers. I've combined the 1080 and the 1440 numbers into two spreadsheets. I thought about going back and running Valley/Heaven all the way back to 353.62, but I don't think the results will be that different. We're talking may a few FPS in between all the sets of drivers.

Valley/Heaven 1506/8000@1.225v CPU 4.0ghz
Valley and Heaven 1080p and 1440p 361.82-368.39

Firestrike 1506/8000@1.225v CPU 4.0ghz
Firestrike 1080p and 1440p 361.91-368.39

I'm debating snagging another MSI gtx970 that's on CL for $200. Think it's a good deal or should I just pass on it? If I skip it, I would be waiting until 1080ti or something, which is honestly fine.

I think I would just stick with the single card for the moment. Unless you are going to keep them. Once the RX 460/470 and 1060 hit, the value of the 970 will drop even more. Once I upgrade, I'll put the 970's in my son's computer. They will replace his R9 270x(4gb) card.

Yeah it's real tough to decide, I was really hoping AMD would release the 490 soon so we would have some competition for the 1070 and hopefully force down the price. I am gaming at 1080p still so a single 970 is plenty, but I would like to upgrade to a 1440p and the 1070 seems like the sweet spot. I just wish the prices were a bit better.

I'm still on the fence with nVidia....not sure about the bios mods that may or may not be there. It seems from what I've read that they are a bit locked on power and voltage. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. We still have the big chips in waiting....so who knows.

I'm completely happy with my SLI set up though. I mainly play BF4 and it runs great. I have a 144mhz monitor, and they have no problem maintaining that. In a HUGE battle it might drop a bit briefly. I can also use DSR to pump up the resolution. I think I was getting like 125fps +/- at 1440 with V-sync off. I think at 1080 it's around 200fps with V-sync off. thumb.gif
