GIGABYTE GTX 9xx H2O/AIR BIOS Tweaking ┌(ô益ô)┐ - Page 234

post #2331 of 7493
everything's good thanks!

After running several benchmarks and games I found the stability at 1546/1980... my top card was hitting the 91C so I had to do some modification to help dissipate the heat between the two cards. I've put x2 NF-A15 and now it doesn't go higher than 83C... thumb.gif

@cookieboyeli,
Maybe try using this as reference? Take a look and try experimenting. I have boost off and never hit 66*C( ON AIR ). Game stable bios, not no limits/benchmarking bios. 1531.5/8000MHZ 1.2500V 297W(82+106.5+109=297.5). Works well for my 970, playing TW3 and Batman AK without Afterburner, for a little over a week now.

Excellent! I like that idea too, looks clean smile.gif

Nice build thumb.gif


When you get a chance, after gaming touch the top backplate with your finger. If you can't hold it there without being too hot I would highly recommend a fan blowing DOWN on to the back plate. The top card is taking care of the back plate heat for you...it is getting sucking up into the top card.. which is why the top card will always be hotter. The fan (80 mm) blowing down on the back plate should keep it nice and cool. Use zip ties or something creative to raise the fan up to a little bit to allow the air to flow. I think your Noctua fans come with those little rubber feet that might be perfect smile.gif

There's already too many fans in this puppy lol, give him a break. rolleyes.gif

I might try it if the temps get over 85C, thanks for the suggestion and bios settings!!!
post #2337 of 7493
So I copied the settings of that bios DeathAngel74 and found out a few interesting things. One, which I already knew from messing about, is that certain power limits will cause an nvidia kernel BSOD when MSI afterburner starts putting you in a boot loop unless you are fast enough to flash another bios before it BSODs, in which case the adapter disables which stops it even after it re-enables, so there's no risk of a brick.

Just to be safe since I've had the Maxwell fan settings cause a BSOD as well I changed everything back to my bios but left the voltage like yours. I am very happy to report that 1250mv actually runs with the same or within a few % of the stability 1313mv provides. At least at 1493 | 3900. As soon as temps get to about 82c the risk of errors is there, and by the time it's at 84c I almost always have an error. 87c and there are too many errors to call it stable, hundreds quickly instead of 10 every minute or so. So temperature is a big factor after you have "enough" voltage that more won't help but possibly hurt. I'm also pleased to report peak wattage was 484w instead of 505w during the OCCT stress test! Idle temps are at 37c instead of 47c.

Laithan, considering my card is "crap" it might be worth a look changing/lowering the voltage steps because even mind can handle it. You could smooth out that rough voltage transition. It also really wouldn't hurt to have the max voltage on clock 74 AND 73 just in case..

Lastly, why don't you run with the TDP Entry, Base Entry, and Boost Entry all on State #0? It throttles when it's set to #1, #2, #0, even if you change the clocks to the same thing.

I'm going to try to modify the fans and possible test up and down in voltage while I'm still awake. I've been awake for almost 30 hours... (I am really bad at this whole" keep a sleep schedule" thing)... redface.gif

to prevent the bootloop when using afterburner, you have to set the power limit 1 watt higher than the power target... see below...

Oh thanks!

In Kepler the Power limits mean nothing but limits you can set them all to 996w and be done with it. I tried it here and got a BSOD probably for that reason. Now that I know this I wonder if I could just set the power limits to 996-1000w on everything? It's not like they actually matter right?

Here's my Hybrid bios of your 1.250v and Laithan's 1.281v. It's using your voltage until the last few clocks when I step into Laithan's. It's using His power limits as well. Wait a second... when I use your power limits I BSOD. Why don't you?

EDIT: 1.281v works better for me as it takes longer to reach errors and can get to a higher temp before errors.

I don't get blue screens because I stopped using MSI Afterburner. If something is edited in the vbios and AB doesn't like it ==bsod.

This should fix the bsod's
