I have and do. I play some GTA V mostly COD stuff and motorcycle racing games.

I generally run loops for a couple hours to simulate what I would do playing. Yeap, 24/7 means no matter what I do for how long it's stable. I don't always run my max stable settings. I usually run 1507/8000. wink.gif

I just don't know how the classy's voltage unlock works..is it unlocked all the time like Gigabyte cards or do you need an additional app that can address the programmable voltage controller?
Same here.. I was unfortunately that guy with the "11 the GPU".

My understanding is that the results are actually pretty different between a 980 and a 980Ti as far as "everyone" or "most" being able to hit 8000Mhz.

** With 970/980's, most people would have better success overclocking RAM (to 8000) with SAMSUNG memory. I was one of those who could not unfortunately (7800 max) and I had Samsung on both my 980's. Samsung memory was used on the 1st run 970/980 G1's. Later came 970/980's with Hynix memory and those with Hynix memory were usually singing the blues (unable to run @ 8000). There was a lot of buzz about this, people wanted Samsung cards.

** This changed with 980Ti... not because of the GPU (I don't think) but because the memory manufacturers are able to produce better/more stable memory. The memory contract was won by Hynix so all of the 1st run 980Ti G1 cards (Gigabyte anyway) came with Hynix memory this time. I have not heard of even one person that could not overclock Hynix 980Ti memory to 8000 yet (I can personally push much higher / mine are Hynix 1st run on my 980Ti's). Later now we see Samsung being used again (total reverse of what happened with 970/980). smile.gif All the new extreme and waterforce cards now come with Samsung too.

YES! Agree fully on the Sammy memory although it often takes more volts. I will say that on the six 980's 1550 was easier to come by than on the Ti's or TX.

And thanks!

I'm not sure if it's unlock at all times BUT I know it will run to 1.30 in PX16.

I have a 82.6% card coming tomorrow we'll see how these play together.

Hi guys, I'm a Gigabyte gtx 980ti G1 gaming owner.
I bought the card in august 2015, and never thought about flashing bios or something similar. smile.gif

I have read your mini-knowledge base in the first post, so I'm virtually ready to flash the max unleashed bios (instructions from http://www.overclock.net/t/1544574/gigabyte-gtx-9xx-g1-gaming-h2o-air-bios-tweaking/670#post_24066794 - JoeDirt's nvflash downloaded - the right bios downloaded from the first post of this thread)...

I got a question, since I think I'm not going to overclock the video card, at least not now since I never did that before and I feel like a total noob...
Well, does it make sense to flash this bios anyway? For sure it will be newer than the one I got on my card. Does just the bios improve in some way the overall performances of the video card? smile.gif

Thank you all very much for your answers.. it's all so new to me! smile.gif
Bye!

IF you decide to flash this bios know this....... you will gain performance in every video use UNLESS your card is so sub par (not likely) it can't handle it please report back.

I inform gigabyte immediatlely
This is my configuration in detail

HDMI ----> PANASONIC TX-P42ST30
/
PC GAME - DVI->SAMSUNG 2770H
\
DP TO DVI ADAPTER-DVI TO HDMI CABLE-HDMI SPLITTER-ASUS P2E PROIECTOR


HDMI ----> PANASONIC TX-P42ST30
/
SERVER - VGA---->SAMSUNG 2770H
\
DVI TO HDMI CABLE-HDMI SPLITTER-ASUS P2E PROIECTOR

I have this configuration instead of direct cable because all cables are fixed near the wall (i hate cable management but looks good). GTX 980 has 3 DP - 1HDMI - 1 DVI looking the back of the gpu i've used the last 3 connectors
I've read somewhere wich this gpu has two bios each controlling 4 ports at a time maybe i connected the wrong ports ? Now i do some tests so i could help someone having the same issue and see what gigabyte says. Thanks bye wave2.gif

Some in-depth info in this thread, thanks to all contributors. I had a bit of time today to start messing around with some of these BIOS's.

I have a 980 Ti WindForce with a Kraken G10/Corsair H70 mounted on it. Flashed the 980 Ti Extreme Waterforce BIOS you have posted in the OP (1506 core/3601 mem) and it ran perfectly on Heaven benchmark (max settings @ 1080p). I think the highest temp I saw after a little while was 61 C.

I decided to push the clock sliders up to +80 core and +400 memory, which gave me 1585 MHz core and 4001 MHz memory clocks.
Running Heaven again for a few cycles was completely stable with no artifacts... but after the second cycle or so the core clock throttled. Every few minutes or so afterwards, it would un-throttle and then throttle down again to around 1460 MHz. The core temp was highest at 68 C, which is fine by me but I guess the card's not ok with it.

I'll attach a screenshot of Afterburner while I was running Heaven, note that I took it a second after I minimized so the core temp and power usage dropped a tiny bit during that time.

Is there anything I can change in the BIOS to prevent it from throttling? I see no reason for it to do so since core temps are fine. Unless the card has the ability to throttle due to high VRM temps or something... I did put heatsinks on them and have a Arctic F9 PWM fan blowing at 100% over them, but no way to know how hot VRMs are running.

Card has no thermal sensor on vrm so them throttle due to a certain temp is unlikely. What %tdp you're getting on full load?

So Conroe with only pc connected via dvi you're fan is behaving ok?
