Thanks you very much for your help. Greatly appreciated !

Sound stable to me..

flash this and call it a day

GTX980-KFA2-3850-Dark.zip 147k .zip file

Same bios but with 1925mhz memory clock, remember to reset OC software to the stock before flashing the new bios.

You're most welcome smile.gif

EDIT: Sorry to double post, figured it out. Syntax error...you need to put "--" in front of "index", it says it right in the command listing of nvflash, i feel pretty stupd right now... card 1 flashed, heading to number 2, will keep you posted...

Deathangel74 and of course, Mr. Dark, thank you very much! With my stock BIOS, my two 970s in SLI under water produced the following Valley score:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Here's my Valley score with Mr. Dark's BIOS flashed to both cards:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Honestly, I am sure that I could squeeze more out of this in PrecisionX, upping my GPU let's say +5 at a time until I find the limit and upping the memory +10 or +15 each run until I find its limit too, but for now, with the BIOS sitting just the way it is, I am EXTREMELY happy!! Some might say "Oh, it's only a couple FPS and roughly +60 points to the score..." Yes it is, it's more FPS than I had before, and it's 60 points higher than it was before, indeed. With the voltage unlocked to 1.25, I know I can get more out of this by increasing the clocks, so that +60 may very well turn into +70 or higher...

In the end, even if I kept it the way it is, it's better than what it was (in my opinion "by far better"), and my power limit is no longer an issue whatsoever, and that is pretty stellar.

I gave both of you guys +rep before I even installed the BIOS just for being such great help to this community, honestly though thank you, you guys don't "have" to do any of this for anyone, and yet you choose to, it's people like you who make this a great community, as well as JoeDirt and all those who spend countless time and energy writing in depth guides to all of this for this community.


EDIT: For example, here's a very modest +15 to the GPU and +25 to memory in PrecisionX...I've still got plenty of headroom as compared to the stock BIOS where my score was literally a little beyond the "crash" limit and I got a "lucky" run... Honestly I am really excited right now, like a kid in a candy shop, it's as if I just bought two brand new GPUs and they're the same ones I've had all along. Should have done this a long time ago!!!

You're quite welcome. I know this is going to sound like a weird question, but I did have issues with my old GTX 670 FTW and I want to be clear before I do anything...

When I reinstall Windows OR update NVidia drivers, do I need to flash the original BIOS back on to each card before I do so? Again, I ask because when I had flashed my old GTX 670, about a month or two after I had reinstalled Windows 7 64 and of course installed the latest (at that time) NVidia drivers, and I thought I bricked my old card.

I got the lovely multicolored vertical lines all over my screen, could just about see Windows, fortunately I had kept my stock BIOS for that card and was able to see enough to flash it back, but again, that was a different card, Kepler architecture, different BIOS, etc, and I am wondering if anything has changed with the Maxwell architecture, or if I should just be flashing back to stock upon driver update/re installation as a general rule of thumb?

EDIT: Seems I have reached close to the "limit" of the voltage on these two cards, that is, in Valley and in actual gaming, I think I still have some memory overclocking left in them, but honestly I am good with this the way it is:

Nope you dont need to flash the bios when you reinstall windows, just dont let windows install the drivers from windows update. Just disable the card in device manager when you do flash a new mod bios, but not after windows/new driver install

Again, I thank you both very much for your hard work and invaluable insight!

SO there was a time when the original VBIOS for the Gigabyte G1 gaming v1.1.1 was downloaded and opened with maxwell bios tweaker. The file was renamed from .f3 to .rom. After that the voltage was shown as 1.343v as the max, is this true and can it be turned up that high?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




also, if its true or not, can the voltage be at the max - max for how many CLK's?? At what point does the volts neeed to be reduced?? like lets say current 1.312-1.312 for CLK 74 then 1.281-1.312 for CLK's 50-73.

Aye?





Truely yours,

Tekodax
