Disable Boost and "Bake-In" Max Game Stable Clocks for Maxwell - Page 67

post #661 of 707
Can Someone Explain Why to set in Nvidia Panel -"Power management mode" to "Prefer maximum performance" ?
Will "Adaptive Mode" work fine with this bios overclocking? To avoid High clocks for apps that don't need full clocks.

Well the purpose of this thread is to bake in the max clocks as the title says which means the cards will run at max speed all the time to avoid possible fps drops etc in games.

The adaptive power management mode has never boosted for me to the max and overall has given me a bad experience. Even with max performance setting my card boosts only when it needs that power. With adaptive the clock rates dropped to like 400mhz but voltage stayed at 0.987v or something -- same as at 1.1ghz. Windows UI and browsers lagged because it didn't boost the clock speeds to give enough power for a lag free experience. With max performance it stays at 1.1 ghz (stock speed) and the same voltage, and when needed, bumps both up. And there's no lag. It also doesn't need to boost up at all in some games if fps is like 60 (my g-sync monitor refresh rate).

If you want to create a BIOS that will boost to max stable clocks only when gaming and when it needs that performance, you can do so by starting over and putting your max stable clock to the maximum (change currently biggest clocks in stock BIOS) and adjust the voltage of the last few steps in the voltage tab to match the needed power. Same as here, but without setting all the dropdowns in first tab to #0, instead letting them be #0,#1,#2 or whatever they are in stock BIOS.

If you want I can post my MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G stock and custom BIOS for reference, so you can compare what I've changed and how you could proceed with your own files!

High voltage is what really hurts so this kind of a solution shouldn't lower the lifetime as much as baked in clocks or high oc through an app. My card goes nicely between under 1v and 1.25V, stepping up together with clock rate when needed. It took quite a while to find stable voltages for all steps but it was totally worth it!

Hi people. I am very new at this. I have Gainward 970 phantom. I put settings like in tutorial, just changed core clock to 1493.5 and I get artefacts in few games when gpu fully loaded.
What could be a problem? :/

Yes and my highest temp was around 72-73C

Clocks too high / voltage too low / memory speeds too high.

You can't just use the tutorials voltages and speeds, you need to know what your max OC is before you BIOS mod and use those values.

Had a play with this today, trying for 1557mhz fixed at 1.23v.
I see that it works, but then sometimes its drops to 1468Mhz.
Tried with performance mode in nvidia CP, and tried keeping temps below 60c, also saw power usage was only 50%.
But still down clocked.

Any ideas?

Also how can i set up the voltage table such that i can still ramp up the voltage in MSI AB, as currently i cant use more than 1.23v, but i could use 1.27v before i limited the voltages. Which slider would help revert that (for those random benching sessions)?

When I move the slider down it doesn't go all the way to my default boost clock (1304) it stays at 1392, how is that possible?!

Nevermind my previous post. I flashed the second firmware in the OP and it's working perfectly!! ^^

My only concern is that sometimes even just idling at desktop the clocks aren't going down when they should be right?

Nvidia Control Panel -> Manage 3D settings -> Power Management mode -> Adaptive .

This will change the Voltage that goes to the gpu based on the Utilization.
Maybe in some games you will see that its not run on the full clocks due to small gpu utilization, i haven't came across this issue.

Thanks! Even with the clocks baked in? They will vary on 3D applications?

yep, there is no point to run full clocks in idel/game menu screen.
i haven't seen any issues with that while being in game, max clockes all the time.
