GIGABYTE GTX 9xx H2O/AIR BIOS Tweaking ┌(ô益ô)┐ - Page 602

post #6011 of 7499
Should I apply a thin layer of thermal paste to the VRAM and VRMs before I apply my new thermal pads? I have some Gelid GC Extreme just for the job. And if so should I use the spreader to apply it?

Sorry for being a pain.

EK (waterblocks & watercooling) recommend applying a small! drop under the pads, but that's for full cover waterblocks that actually touch the VRMs ( not for the mems). No need to spread anything. I don't know what you're re-assembling there ( u didn't mention) - water block or air cooler back on.

Peace

Figured I'd let u guys know it's out, and WHY you say?

Guess what, some of the NVCP options are changed, and also IT NOW REMEMBERS THE GLOBAL SETTINGS ON REBOOT, WHICH IT DIDN'T BEFORE. thumb.gif

Nice to add fast sync, so i can put it in global settings, except for dota 2 which need to use separate normal vsync otherwise it get laggy wink.gif



I am surprised My 970 has the Fast Setting too now ...... not that it's Fast smile.gif but every bit helps

Re-applying the windforce heatsink, just trying to do anything to help improve the temps of my cards (outside of going for a custom loop). Kinda figured this would be more suitable for waterblocks.

On re-applying the Windforce heatsink back on the only thing you need to worry about is that the pads are big enough and placed properly squared on the mems and vrms. You'll notice that one side of the thermal pads is stickier than the other. That side goes on the vrms/mems, - then just make sure that when applying the cooler you do it straight down without twisting as that can twist the pads underneath.

I wouldn't do any TIM other than the star on the core itself.

Peace

Why do some games not hit full boost clock?

I can understand less demanding games but Arkham Knight doesn't do it. Is it a bug or something?

My 980 ti Xtreme gaming is F10 and is in D_S mode.

Can I flash?

The Off mode ln2 is a blue LED?

Can I use NVFlash_Certs_Bypassed_v5.287_x64?

I have to take some care when running the bios mod?

Posso usar o NVFlash_Certs_Bypassed_v5.287_x64?

Extract your factory Bios - most likely a F10. save it - in a couple different places. Follow the instructions on flashing, they are very easy and self explanatory.

LN2 on = RED
LN2 off = Blue - leave it on OFF. Do not flash over the LN2!

NVFlash version is listed in the OP.. Do not disconnect the monitor while flashing!! that is the only warning, other than flashing the right Bios --->>>F10

As far as running the Bios, just follow the directions in the OP.

In use, TRY to keep the card lower than 65C as it throttles starting at that point. After flashing do a baseline benchmark in Heaven with power & voltage maxed watching the GPU -Z window for Perfcap. You should have no perfcap at all.

To overclock just add +10 on the core till you reach your max core overclock, then start adding mem oc till you get crashes or artifacts, then back off a little.

IF you cannot stay under 65C temp with the bios's fan curve, do a custom fan curve in MSI AB to keep the temp at max 65C.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the help friend.

About nvFlash , I can use a more current version such as 5.287?

If the temperature is slightly above 65c , I will have problem?

I will use a bios AIR_MUMODV1.1_980TiXTREME_F10_DS.zip

I meant to say that you might be having fan problems, instead of coil wine. Try to set fan speed to 70 % when playing light game (like dota 2) and listen if you have any sounds, nomatter how the clocks are set.
