Your pal Laithan has the #1 Unigine Heaven score for 2xSLI 980Ti @ 4K biggrin.gif

That's more like it smile.gif and still VERY good temps, congrats!

You are correct, fans can go up to 4,200 in most instances. It's extremely loud but might be used for benching. The fan profile in the 980Ti BIOS' are all modified from STOCK to offer a better "auto" mode than STOCK however I would always recommend a custom fan curve. AUTO was just a bit of me trying to make sure people increased fan speeds when modding. All the 980 BIOS' have untouched fan settings (and yes they can be modified to 4,200 rpm also, if needed just let me know).

I know this because my old 560 Ti Hawk went to about 1000 more RPM than what it would when I manually set it to 100%, when it hit 101 degrees by mistake, it overrode my manual % settings as well.

Regarding this matter as well, since I don't know myself, if this increase in fan speed were to be used regularly after a modified BIOS would it not cause harm to the fans themselves?

Yes, we can access 4.200 rpm manually also with this BIOS. The fans are designed for this speed, they are usually just capped due to user noise complaints.

also i'm searching and thinking about my first Loop cheers.gif

what yo think ?


Hell ya! H2O is the way to go.

The Swiftech MCR140x is a great way to get into a "real loop" (to make things easy for someone getting started). The pump will support and extra RAD and (2) full cover water blocks without issue. I would be willing to bet it would also support the CPU in the same loop but might be best to just leave your CPU separate since it would be close.

I have seen this myself as well. The game does not appear to be optimized. The longer you play the higher GPU VRAM utilization goes even through different scenes.

(in fact i expected to get way better OC with my ASIC quality). And thank guys for Ghetto Fan Tech idea. The only things that blow my mind last couple days is that i want more power. I ran my games at 3440x1440 and 1 980ti is not enough for stable 60+ fps, so i decided to get second 980ti Waterforce card. The problem is that i cant find it in stock nowhere. Is production of it is over? And if so, what card you can recommend for sli? Sorry for my lame English. Cheers.



Thanks for the feedback! specool.gif

I would have NO ISSUE at ALL buying a used waterforce. They haven't been on the market long so they can't be used that much and there's few moving parts so wear and tear isn't an issue. Check the bay..

Good luck!

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5915#bios

Thanks for sharing.. So they released a BIOS update already we can see. OP updated with link.

Funny, for the ENTIRE 980Ti line they NEVER released a BIOS update...

dp_custom is the BIOS from which I copied the information from.

GM204 is my normal current stock BIOS, and GM204Modded is the one I copied the info from dp_custom.

I would also like to know if it's possible for me to modify something with the fan speed, as sound is not a problem for me and I think I've heard the fans could go to 4200?

Lastly, I'd like to know what exactly is the specific commands I should enter in CMD when flashing the bios, some people do like nvflash -6 *insert bios name here*, some people nvflash *insert name here*, I'd like to know which command exactly should I enter.

Also, since I'd be flashing an "upgraded" version of my own BIOS, what are the risks of bricking my D_P BIOS, or even GPU?

My nvflash is the version recommended in this thread (Thank you OP for giving me the dw link and helping), it contains just nvflash.exe and nvflash64.sys, should it contain something more?


dp_custom.zip 136k .zip file

GM204.zip 136k .zip file

GM204modded.zip 136k .zip file

Edit: I forgot to mention, do I have to manually disable the GPU in the device manager before flashing, then re-enable it after it flashed and restart the PC or will nvflash do it automatically?


Hi there.. I can check your BIOS. I need to get F60 posted in the OP anyway. I now have both DD and DP BIOS to do this. I will let you know when posted wink.gif

Please review the information in the OP as it covers most of your questions. If you cannot find the info or still have questions after taking a look that's fine just want to point it out that MOST info is already in the OP.

I tossed a new Lian Li 12cm fan in the back since it has no LED's and this way I can have all my LED fans showing nicely. 3 x 14cm intake and 3 x 12cm exhaust...12cm running at 100% and intakes at 7v instead of 12v, whatever RPM that gives me...forgot to check.

This minor tweak has given me the little bit of improvement I was looking for but Witcher 3 Blood and Wine is a dog to be honest. I can't understand how a cinematic can take my card to 100% TDP but meh.

In any case, my temps while playing Blood and Wine are now low 60's...usually 61-63 Celsius and I was also able to drop down my fan profile by 5%. So at 60 Celsius I have it now at 65% instead of 70%. This all running with a 1500/2000 OC and stable.

Very nice! It's all about the fine tuning and getting things "just right", well done.

FYI, 100% TDP is not the max tdp of the GPU.. This is why it's useless. I've seen 140% before. smile.gif

Here you go, regular and 4200rpm versions wink.gif

970F60-MAX-UNLEASHED-REL1.1.zip 273k .zip file
970F60-MAX-UNLEASHED-42001.1.zip 273k .zip file

The AUTO setting in the 4200 versions are going to be loud but will cool very well. You'd want to override those settings by using a custom fan curve to dial things into your own personal preference.

As long as you have the same card as Saruth (GTX970) how posted that ? I don't see any mention of your card , so I am not sure....


Laithan has just posted for you the F60 versions.......http://www.overclock.net/t/1544574/gigabyte-gtx-9xx-10xx-g1-gaming-h2o-air-bios-tweaking/5560#post_25290217

Doing some final checks if I copied my BIOS fine I stumbled across the CLK 18 from the voltage table, which is at 818.8mV-887mV, but the ones below CLK 17 to 0 all start at 825.0, is this intended or a typo?

Great stuff

inbetween the beeping and the cmd doing it's thing my heart was rushing at the thought of a bricked card.

But it worked, all it took was 10 seconds and it flashed flawlessly.

+REP for the OP for all the help you provided me with and the explanations, couldn't have done it without you biggrin.gif

I know how you felt, but you'll get use to it after 2-3 flashes it won't bother you one bit biggrin.gif

Hopefully the Gigabyte 1070 WindForce OC gets some love and BIOS mods here since it's basically a 1070 Gaming G1 minus 1 fan and RGB stuff, it's an equally capable card.
Still an 8-pin and 6+2 power phases. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5922#kf
Mine is on its way, from Cali to Canada.

Also, does anyone have info on how GPU Boost 3.0 and K-Boost work on Pascal? Are we getting throttling at 68c like Maxwell that will require BIOS edits to disable?
EVGA's new overclocking utility XOC lets you customize the GPU Boost voltage to frequency curve, and maybe they improved K-Boost and now it overrides some throttling? That would be nice.

Seems like we possibly have more control over throttling at least without needing to edit the BIOS but I have no idea, if nobody else knows I suppose I'll find out myself hopefully this week.

Could be, which BIOS did you see this?

Thank you sir smile.gif

4,999 was actually the 1080p score, I did pretty well in that one too (and YES I wanted 5,000 so bad but couldn't get it lol) but you have to click the 4K tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet biggrin.gif

There is some NVIDIA published info re: boost 3.0 however as far as modding the BIOS and what the behavior might be in relation to maxwell, we just don't know. It does sound like tweaking might possibly be done different (the voltage table might be different). We just don't know yet frown.gif.

Throttling behavior isn't clear. There is one thing that is clear, voltage and power increases are needed...there's no doubt once we get them, we can expect higher performance especially under full cover blocks.

Oh I know 100 TDP is not max, I'm just surprised that going through some cinematic sequences in the game pulls that much power from the card. Normal game play is in the 70's 80's % TDP
