GIGABYTE GTX 9xx H2O/AIR BIOS Tweaking ┌(ô益ô)┐ - Page 334

post #3331 of 7277
Well I haven't posted in a while. Just came to check on everyone. Glad to see Laithan is still keeping busy LOL.

So I finally got around to playing Rise of the Tomb Raider and man is it beautiful. Had to tweak some stuff in Nvidia Inspector to get it to utilize both my 980 ti G1's to 100 percent. Took her out for a test spin last night and the damn top card began overheating and throttling. I decided that I needed to pull it out and swap the paste on it and see if I can help it out a bit. Well the paste worked. Dropped temps by 10 degrees and no throttling but whoever put this card together royally ****ed things up. I pulled off a piece of copper from one of the screw holes. There are some big deep gouges where it sits down on the GPU. I now want to send this thing back to Gigabyte but not sure how to go about it and if the cooler will get recycled and I'd end up with the same **** cooler. But none the less. Laithan, thank you again for a wonderful bios. Still using it and it's still the best damn bios I've used. You all take care.

We can rule out if it is your power supply or not. Here is a test BIOS and the only thing different is higher power. If your power supply cannot provide the power needed these settings won't make any difference. If it was the BIOS holding you back they PWR perfcaps will be gone. I would honestly be surprised if it was the latter but for your sake I hope so.

Good luck friend!

Hey bud, long time! Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated

Yes I would recommend putting some quality thermal paste for sure. It is SO EASY to take a GPU apart smile.gif

Wow thats some quality customer support right here thumb.gif
i will flash it now and report back after i run ffxiv


Edit: soo with this bios ffxiv froze and crashed after three minutes at 1586/4000... will try to lower the core clock a little but i dont know why its crashing
3 minute gpuz log:
GPU-ZSensorLogtest.txt 504k .txt file

Edit2: i just noticed that my power% slider in msi ab now goes all the way up to 175%, i only applied my profile before which goes to 150%, will try again with 175%

Edit3: first run of ffxiv at 1576/4000 completed and gpuz showed no perfcaps, so thats good wink.gif

Always a good idea to delete all existing profiles when you flash a new BIOS. You can potentially end up with the GPU stuck with a strange value (just a software glitch). Re-create all new profiles from scratch. You'll thank me for a problem you'll never have wink.gif

Yup I configured it for 175% just because it was a test wink.gif I should have mentioned that

yeah no problem, just ran it again with 175% at 1586/4000 and it completed without problems and there are no perfcaps in my gpuz log so that did it thumb.gif
did you add a lot of power or was it just a small adjustment? would be good to know if my card is just very power hungry or if this is a problem on more cards. could it be because my asic is so low (66%)??

Thanks for the feedback this is excellent. I smell RC2 biggrin.gif

Folks, please consider throwing some REPs to Mr. 0xzz for his duties to GPU greatness.. Just sayin.. thumb.gif


I increased it quite a bit. Let's dial it in. I suspect we REALLY don't need to add MUCH.

This one is 465W compared to 451W where you found perfcaps. Let's see if you need MORE or if this covers it. typer.gif

Back to 150%, want to see if you are paying attention wink.gif


I updated the OP with some eye candy... Does it look ok? Is it "too much"?

yes this time i was paying attention wink.gif
this one looks good too, passed ffxiv at 1586/4000 and no perfcaps in my gpuz log thumb.gif

OK so this demonstrates that TOO MUCH power defined can indeed be an issue as your stability was returned as we dialed back the power.

If you don't mind, can we find out where it "breaks"? I just don't want to have any more power defined than what is necessary.

This is dialed back to 455W (vs the 451W where you had perfcaps). Could the 4 watts be all that is needed?

Here is another, this time it is is it 460W (vs the 451W where you had perfcaps) or is 9 watts all that is needed?
H2O_RC1F4_DP0xzztest4.zip 152k .zip file


Or will you need to go back to the 465W test you just ran?
