Thank you for the feedback!

+398 MHz Memory
I'm hitting 1600 MHz on the core and 8000 MHz on the memory. Any less on the voltage and it won't boost to the full 1600. Trying for 1610 was not stable, so I'm right on the edge of what it will give me.I'm just curious how safe this really is.
On the stock BIOS, I could hit about 1550-1570 MHz or so. As I understand it, the voltage is capping at 1.293 with this BIOS. With the stock BIOS, I believe I was hitting 1.237 for max boost.
Any feedback or suggestions?
Thanks for the feedback. That's sweet!
You have BOTH the power% and voltage sliders maxxed out right?
As far as safety, no there's never any guarantee that by using this BIOS you won't accidentally blow up your neighborhood
Actually all kidding aside the tweaks are not extreme. The power is within specification of what the PCI-e rails can deliver (as long as you are feeding the GPU DEDICATED PCI-e cables directly from your power supply. NO doubling up and/or using splitters/adapters of any kind
). The power supply must be strong enough as noted by the PSU requirements. Lastly the voltage is quite low on AIR cards and even the H2O BIOS is not using the maximum limit of the voltage controller (which is over 1.3v).
Flash at your own risk as they say but we've got some pretty satisfied customers around here. I'm one of them

Clocks are 1551 core and 7990 mem, card is gtx 980 g1 gaming, no TDRs and no PerfCaps with this bios.

Can you find anything wrong with it?
BIOS looks good!
You most likely have a fairly high ASIC% and in addition you have good silicon. This combination is what is referred to as "the silicon lottery" and YOU WON!

I guess my options are to increase the max voltage on the stock BIOS for the maximum boost states, lower the voltage on the BIOS from this thread to where I want it, or to just lower the voltage slider on the new BIOS to lower the maximum boost state achieved and then increase the core MHz to reach 1600 at that state.
Again, any feedback would be appreciated. I'm new to this. Still learning.
The only thing about these BIOS' that should be "aggressive" would be your mandatory custom fan curve
You can always use the voltage slider if you want to reduce voltage it will just be limiting the GPU (so you will see perfcaps, expected but fine) and isn't the way you would overclock these GPUs. When overclocking you'll want BOTH the power% and voltage maxxed out. These BIOS' are designed for that (when overclocking) as they will allow the best overclocking conditions for your GPU.
Just keep an eye on temps (don't let it go over 80C-85C at the VERY worst) and you'll be just fine.

BUT I flashed your bios and everything is running great aside from a bit of whine
Ok..WHAT THE @(#($*$#(!! QC SUX!
I am sorry brother.. You WILL have something better!! YOU WILL! (sux to wait again
Can everyone please stand up and cuss like a sailor in honor of nicksmizzle? The GPU godz will hear....

things are so bizarre that sometimes i get crashes on games, minimize and then appears: THE APPLICATION HAS BEEN BLOCK FROM ACESSING YOU GRAPHICS HARDWARE(never see that in my life), seconds later > GRAPHICS CARD STOP RESPONDING
i5 3570k 4.6 Ghz
asrock z77pro 4
gtx 980 g1
cx 600w corsair
2x4 gb ripjaws ddr1600
maybe its my PSU?
i'm buying in a few days a i7 6700K, already bought ddr4 3200 mhz and a MSI Krait Motherboard, but that GTX 980 makes me too sad to upgrade my PC
"Gamestable" BIOS from Zoson's thread (we don't have a gamestable BIOS here) or did you mean the one from the OP in this thread?
Are BOTH your voltage and power% sliders maxxed out?
Have you tested with a custom fan curve or fan @ 100% to see if a thermal issue?
Over 95% of the 980G1's ran great @ 1531Mhz boost default (with both power% and voltage sliders maxxed) and were able to go even higher so unfortunately you may just have a poor overclocking GPU. I am hoping maybe your sliders were not maxxed and that solves the problem for you.
Good luck! Let us know

another issue is GPU-Z read my core boost @ 1696 while afterburner OSD shows 1520 I dont know if its a glitch or something wrong.
Thanks for feedback
If you are seeing 1696Mhz you may be confusing the CORE GPU clock speed and the BOOST GPU clock speed.
You want to start out like this. Adding nothing to core and nothing to memory but max out both voltage and power % sliders.
Monitor your boost with GPU-z
