(Talking between us though i must give you some more details: The Xtreme's cooler is NOT
the "100W" better the numbers suggest than G1's cooler!
i had a G1 980ti with a custom BIOS and i assure you that the difference between them is closer to 15C
under load. Both my current Xtreme and my
old G1 have the same 72.8% Asic but the Xtreme enjoys a full 100Mhz
better core OC!
My G1 was max @1481/7600 and up to 67C
with the fans 100%.
My Xtreme goes at a massive 1570-1590/8000 only up to 55C
with the fans 100%.
Now that 55C is water territory
and maybe is part of the reason the Xtreme OCs better. Using your old H2O BIOS the card barely broke 60C under Hours of heavy load.PERSONAL
Conclusion is this:
I feel pretty safe to test your new H2O BIOS with my PARTICULAR
XTREME card, even though based on my earlier findings it won't do much for further OC.)
True and I speak a lot to the "Audience" also in my replies to individuals. I am sure you get it
I just want to say for the record that when I speak of temps I am talking about the worst case scenarios. These are the ones that matter though right? Nobody wants to be in the middle of some intense action and fry their GPU because it was running at 108C..
My point is that the temps CAN sneak up on you. This is also why I encourage a really strenuous test when testing MOD BIOS' to make sure you aren't using a "Firestrike run" for example to represent GPU temps.. a Firestrike run doesn't even get the GPUs warmed up much in comparison
PS. I was just going by what the Manufacturer claims not talking out my hindside
Agree about the ASIC, it means nothing as far as max overclock it just means what voltage will be required to get there.
Ok, time to flex your muscles Mr. Extreme GPU This task, should you choose to accept it:
If you want to take your GPU to the really dark, creepy crime infested, drug dealing, hustling worst neighborhoods that a GPU can venture, do this:(1) Open GPU-z, enable logging (click on the sensor tab, check the box and choose a location to save the log file where you can find it)
(2) Open FFXIV free benchmark. Configure settings. Click on MAXIMUM. Adjust resolution to 3840x2160 (4k, and if you don't have a 4k monitor go into the NVIDIA control panel, 3d settings, global, enable DSR 4x and apply the settings.
(3) Set your GPU to your maximum known stable overclock and overclock your GPU memory to your maximum known stable overclock.
(4) Configure OSD (on screen display) to show your GPU temps during the test (or use an LCD keyboard, I use Logitech G510 but don't buy it, the keys suck). You will need to keep an eye on the temps.
(5) Make sure you set your fan to 80% or use a custom fan curve
(6) Run the benchmark..record the results and share them here.
This way we can all see the difference with the extreme cooler. Would love to see the detailed results. Thank you in advance.
Please also include a screenshot of GPU-z sensor GUI

My card hit 40c today and it's warm in here now ..... I should open a window.
Example ...... my 100% air cooled box in the geeeerage will run at 20c under a heavy load when the door is cracked and it's in the mid 20's F where this box will around 3-5c in the same conditions. So reality is water territory temps are another 15c less than you mentioned...... of course EVERYTHING is variable and dependent on ambients.
Agree, I have a 140mm + 420mm loop dedicated to both my 980Ti's and my motherboard's Northbridge/Southbridge and I topped out at 48C during my ~3 hour Witcher 3 gaming session @ 4k with max settings. My CPU is on another dedicated loop.
25C ambient here
You should definitely flash RC1

Btw i think i sow screen flicker 2-3 times when i lost picture for a ms in game and when loading windows flickes, anyone else experience that with V4BETAF4?
Also want to report another bug, i don't know why my dota 2 crash every time i start it after 4-5 sec and as well do flicking with starting. /edit: i think i find the problem is when i turn on riva tuner on screen display support or when its on by default.
Otherwise it's really good because i don't hit perf caps.
. It is going to be better in every way. Consider it like a windows service pack update
. The change from 1.237v to 1.243v is only 0.006v difference so I wouldn't specifically worry about the temps compared to V4BETAF4, I suspect they will be virtually identical
. If you insist, you can always back off the voltage a little with the voltage slider also if needed (perfcaps are expected then because you are intentionally limiting voltage).Edited by Laithan - 1/31/16 at 1:12pm
