Haven't encountered any freezes since changing the BIOS *touch wood*
I wait for them to release the final version F8 then i flash, otherwise beta bioses are not for me, never putted one for motherboard tongue.gif

I've recently noticed that certain games and stress tests are causing my system to hard crash. Including the 4K Firestrike Ultra and recently the System Shock Remastered demo. High temps are not a problem for my SLI Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti G1 cards (temps are not exceeding 75 degrees on load). The crashes for the System Shock demo occur even if I underclock both cards. My PSU is a Corsair 1200AX and I'm beginning to suspect that it may be the culprit. I've been monitoring the voltages for the +12V rail and I'm getting a reading of 0.048V.

Any suggestions would be great as I don't want to commit to a PSU replacement unless it is absolutely necessary.


You can probably determine if it is PSU related by removing one of your GPUs and test again with just one installed (to guarantee no additional power is used by the other GPU). I also am thinking PSU despite that being a high quality PSU... anything can break regardless of make/model... 1200W is "riding the edge" of (2) MUMOD 980Ti's.. depending on your system it might not be enough (I personally use an AX1500i for (2) MUMOD 980Ti's).

Question 1

I was just wandering if this is normal, and apologize for the extremely nooby question, but i own the Waterforce Edition 980ti and for the life of me, since flashing the MUMOD bios with stock setting with both voltage and power sliders maxed out, my gameplay is not stable at all and I'm always getting driver crashes.

Would it be possible that my card is just not stable at all at 1507Mhz ?

Even if i underclock to what i was getting on the stock bios, (1471Mhz) its still not stable at all. again as always voltage and power at max?


Question 2
I backed up my stock bios with NVFLASH and when i flash that backup rom its giving me a base clock of 1103Mhz, when im pretty sure it used to be 1215Mhz.

Was it a mistake to backup using NVFLASH and not GPU-Z?

GPU-Z kept on saying it cannot save the bios.

Did i have to disable it in Device manager first? Derp


Question 3

Could someone help me find the stock bios of the Waterforce as i have checked online and haven't found anything.



THANKS TO WHO EVER CAN HELP, IM KINDA SCARED I DO SOMETHING WRONG AND BRICK MY CARD derp


(1) Check out this post (only to be lazy and not re-type it lol)

YES it is possible that your GPU cannot handle 1506.5Mhz although it would be the first watercooled 980Ti that could not (that I have heard of).

Hoping the above post helps, let me know. smile.gif

We have options to try if you have issues. Also make sure if you get a TDR to ALWAYS reboot after. If you don't you can expect oddities. Reboot sets everything straight.



(2) No, GPU-z is fine but you missed some key steps (covered in the OP on how to flash a BIOS). If you have overclocking profiles loaded @ startup that were set with the MOD BIOS, trying to load those same profiles on the STOCK BIOS is many times going to result in a "software glitch". It's not an application bug really because you can reinstall the same version and it will work just fine.

You need to uninstall ALL applications that communicate with/monitor/overclock etc. the GPU. The only one you can keep is GPU-z. When you remove MSI Afterburner for example MAKE SURE you ALSO remove all settings. When it asks if you want to keep settings you need to say NO.

Reboot

Check your GPU speed with GPU-z. If back to normal proceed to reinstall all the same software. If not back to normal there's still "leftover" settings you need to find and get rid of. smile.gif



(3) Seek, and you shall find thumb.gif

Oh cool I didn't know they added a stress test. Thanks for sharing.

How does it work?

Flashing GPU = VERY stable and generally considered "Safe"

Flashing MB = Risky... I have bricked motherboards this way even though nothing wrong was done and all steps followed. Admittedly, this was LONG ago before MBs had dual-BIOS' also... perhaps these days it's pretty stable IDK, I just cringe when I think about it now wink.gif

Its very demanding...bios works great

My fans won't go over 3200 rpm. The card is 970 G1 F41 BIOS modified.
Is there any solution?

GM204.zip 136k .zip file
is it ok to copy this evga custom bios setting to gtx970 g1 gaming f60 bios and is it safe to go 1.3v

First of all thank you so much Laithan! You're a real champion.

Indeed it appears to be the removal of msi that I missed.

I followed the steps again to the tee, flashed and everything worked superb. I was able to achieve 1540Mhz on the core. very stable indeed.

Thank you so much for you work and the help!smile.gif

Hi, I have an issue where I can't revert my BIOS to stock. I've tried using the .rom backup I made using GPU-Z, before flashing to the custom BIOS, but this error appears: BCRT Error: Certificate 2.0 verification failed. I'm using the latest nvflash v5.28. Is there something wrong with my backup BIOS? I've tried using someone else's stock BIOS and the one uploaded on Gigabytes website but the same error appears. VGA @Bios won't even detect the gpu. Anyone faced this issue before?

having the same issue as well. what i did was just load my stock bios on maxwellbiostweaker. then opened another window of maxwellbiostweaker and opened the mumod bios. copied all the values from the stock bios to the mumod bios and saved it and i flashed that bios and it worked. but still i want to know why nvflash doesnt allow flashing back the stock bios.

Hi. I was thinking of doing the exact same thing. I managed to get advice from a different thread suggesting I use an older version of nvflash. I tried each version before the latest release one by one until I found nvflash v5.250 worked flawlessly for me. I managed to flash my card to the stock BIOS without issues.

Hey!

I bought a Gigabyte GTX 980Ti Extreme air.

I dont want a full fanless mode (gets too hot in MutliMonitor view), but can I do a BIOS tweak to run the fans under 500RPM (14% in Afterburner)?
I also dont need any voltage boost or something, my card runs fine with 1500MHz/4050MHz with a 77.1% ASIC.

My GPU now is the only thing i can hear out of my case.

Please help me to get my card more silent!
