I have rebooted, then re-enabled the GPU as it was disabled in DM. Installing driver soon.

PS There was some going dark screen and some noises which I assume are normal when flashing.

Thanks smile.gif

Yup the actual flashing process is pretty simple it's the prep work in advance that matter most wink.gif

Great to read stuff from this thread


Yup! Both the power% and voltage sliders are fully functional in the MUMOD BIOS'. You will get perfcaps if both are not maxxed and may not overclock as high but you can "dial in" pretty much what you want using them (they have expanded range compared to stock).

Push "Ctrl+F" in Afterburner and it will open a voltage curve graph, you can select any step on the curve and push "L" to lock it, aka K-Boost it to that voltage and clock.
You can also save a profile with the lock/K-Boost enabled and one without, and switching between profiles will enable and disable it.
Since you can enable profiles via hotkeys, you never even have to open a program to enable MSI's K-Boost, you just push 2 keys on your keyboard.

Precision's K-Boost is less flexible, you can't choose what voltage and frequency to boost to, and you can't save it to profiles, so you have to open the program and click the button every time.

I have an MSI 1070.
I hope somehow we can deal with the encryption someday :/


I think that's a Pascal specific feature.. due to the different way that they manage the voltage curve (voltages associated with speeds). Pushing ctrl-f does nothing for me. I'm on 4.2.0 the do have a 4.3.0 beta but regardless I'm pretty sure it's pascal only but thanks for sharing. biggrin.gif

Congrats... that test's scores tend to vary but either way a considerable improvement plus no throttling, etc. smile.gif

cheers.gif

Yea it is Pascal only.
I'm pretty sure that trick to get K-Boost in MSI Afterburner isn't worth it anyway, since it requires a restart I believe to enable and disable each time, where it does not in Precision.
This MSI Afterburner is the only way for Pascal unless you do that worse trick which there would be no point, since Precision's K-Boost can only be used on EVGA cards, no other brand is allowed to use K-Boost in Precision with Pascal.

I'm going AMD Vega if there isn't a BIOS editor by then. I can't deal with this GPU Boost, it causes more problems than anything else I've ever had in my PC.
It keeps lowering my voltage during pause screens and light loads and crashing.
It crashes in the BF1 server browser after a couple minutes of sitting there because my voltage lowers to 1.081v.
It's fine during actual gameplay because it stays at 1.093v, but I am not allowed to control my card so I cannot lock it there.

The voltage is lowering simply because the GPU load is lowering...
The core and memory clocks stay identical to what they are during gameplay since I have them locked there, the temperatures lower in the server browser, yet the voltage drops.
"Oh we're not under heavy load right now, let me just lower that voltage for you here WITHOUT lowering your clocks so we can save you some power and CRASH"

I should have just got a 980 Ti, I've had this card for ******* months and I'm still struggling to find stability because this dynamic voltage garbage causing instability where it wasn't before.
If I could just keep things exactly how I want them to be, exactly how I was able to with my 970, everything would be fine again.

GPU Boost does literally nothing useful, all it does is cause crashes because it doesn't know how to regulate voltage properly.

I may as well just run stock clocks, but that's beyond stupid that I have to not overclock because of a garbage power saving feature that can't be controlled or disabled.


I was happy with my 970, nothing but crashes and problems with BOTH 1070's I've had.
I hope AMD starts competing so I never have to buy an Nvidia product for the rest of my life, I want nothing more but to never deal with this for another second.

Hi,

Can you tell me how this guy "White Rabbit" from another forum did it. This is what he said when reviewing it "Those knowledgeable about 980 Ti overclocking should recognize that 1.230V is not a standard voltage. Like I previously mentioned, the card will drop down the voltage a notch if temperatures go above 70C. In the stock BIOS, this lowers the voltage from 1.237V to 1.212V, which is a standard voltage. Unfortunately, 1515MHZ @ 1.212V was not 100% stable in Anno 2070 and Heavensward. I extracted the stock BIOS from my card, and made only one change: an increase of the voltage to 1.230V. This made the card go down from 1.237V to 1.230V, which made it slightly hotter but offered the stability I was seeking."

Also to flash back stock bios i have to use the official not bypassed nvflash right?
And last question can i use OC guru with MUMOD?

Thanks

There was few experienced people warning about the Pascal that is not good inbetween generation (incl. myself),
but no one listen and after they bought it started crying about it... I don't know why peeps do that.

Hey guys . It's been a while since i have flashed my 980 Ti G1 Gaming SLI Beasts . Down below i link a picture of the bios i have currently installed on both cards , which should be the F4 Bios . Now my question is , can i use Displayport with this particular Bios ? I remember there was a problem with one bios so that i can't use Displayport and since i am about to get a new display i would like to know if i can use displayport with the bios i have currently installed on both cards . Here is a pic from the current bios installed on both cards :

EDIT :

Think i found the solution myself after some research . So since i seem to have the DP bios installed the setup pictured below is whats relevant for me right ?

Hey bud long time smile.gif

Yes you are correct, you found the answer. When using the DP BIOS only those ports in the screenshot you found are even usable. Which one to use requires some experimentation as I found I needed to use the furthest port from the HDMI port for my display port connection (when using one display port).

Yup.. and no I didn't get any video until I used the last one. I'm sure if I had more than one display port that the others would work but it appears that you want to start with the port all the way at the end first (at least for the 980Ti G1's).

Ok thanks bud . Now i "only" have to decide between the ASUS PG279Q or ASUS PG278Q ..... tough one ....
