Still rocking my 970 liquid cooled with custom bios.
Screen is 2560x1080@75Hz and it usually chugs along rainbow six at over 100FPS smile.gif

Hey GTX 970 owners,

We are having our monthly Foldathon from Monday 20th - Wednesday 22nd - 12noon EST.
Would you consider putting all that power to a good cause for those 2 days? If so, come sign up and fold with us - see attached link.

March 2017 Foldathon



To get started:

1.Get a passkey (allows for speed bonus) - need a valid email address
http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py


2.Download the folding program:
http://folding.stanford.edu/


Enter your folding name (mine is the same as my OCN name)
Enter your passkey
Enter Team OCN number - 37726


later

I need help in taking my overclock further.

Currently my overclock is this, on both cards.
https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/details/d4vv8




Overclocked further with MSI as well. (After BIOS flash)


1314/2008/1633 boost mad.gif


After some more pushes - One hour 1080p 8xmsaa Furmark run passed!

Yep,

These company's don't prioritize RMA department, most of the time they will just give you the part as long as you are within the manufacturer's date time frame, you don't even need a receipt!

I sent my GTX 970 in and got a refurb (works fine but there was a dent in the heatsink) within a week! (Granted I am within a 30 minute drive to their RMA centre).
Request was automatically approved!

The best RMA though is EVGA, who will take your credit card number and send you the part out the next day priority shipping and wait for your part to come in. If your part isn't approved for RMA service they will bill your card if you don't send the working card back. However, most cards are probably approved.

The 970's always perform better on a modded bios. 9 out of 10 times. I still have my original MSI card. I actually benched it yesterday. I did my own bios, it's 1506/8000@1.225v. Card still runs great. The only issue it has, one fans fails to start sometimes. A flick of the finger, and it's good to go.

EDIT: The only reason to NOT mod....voltage is hard locked, or your PSU can handle the wattage. They will pull 200w easy with a nice power limit increase.

Yep your core clock definitely on the low side. I did 1500/2000 as well on sli gtx 970s. 91 temp target with two gpus.

If i had one couldve pumped a bit more out of the core and maybe memory but appears that 2000 is pretty peaked out on memory.

Voltage is generally hard locked so unless you shunt the transistors you wont be able to pump more than a certain voltage no matter what.
My cards were capped at around 1.24v

Nah....1.314v on most cards. Although, 1.275v is all you would ever see in monitoring software. The card I still have can hit 1590-1600 with the voltage pumped up. The power limit is at 305-315w, can't remember. I still have all the bios' that I can run though. smile.gif

EDIT: I did go SLI, the second card wasn't a very good OC'er. Had Hynix ram on. I could run them both around 1545/8000 though. Samsung ram would go up to 8400!

No longer in production if I had to guess. frown.gif

I have a MSI that I am thinking of selling. I don't really need it anymore. It's a dam good OC'er too.

I posted this last night:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1621551/unigine-superposition-benchmark-developers-need-your-help-to-make-it-better/180#post_26006637

That was on my "Time Spy" bios....lol

EDIT: Is this your card?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-970-04G-P4-3975-KR-4GB-SSC-GAMING-w-ACX-2-0-EB545-/262934547409?hash=item3d381ecbd1:g:rmgAAOSwB-1Y7oV0

200.00 ish with shipping.

EDIT II: Here's a pic of the one I still have..it's the top one, metal custom made backplate:
