+700Mhz which is 2103Mhz raw, 4206Mhz double pumped, 8412Mhz effective.

dang that sure is a beast!

ive ordered the ram cooling stuff

just trying to negotiate a better price for the waterblock/ backplate off a retailer as I would of expected them to came down a little in price because its last gen but its exactly the same price lol
yet there seems to be other 980 ek block models on sale or offer

YUP!

I was thinking of going to them in the past but ones made by alphacool

but decided not to because I thought to myself the money spent would not increase my overclocking, thats what I thought

I am tempted lol to get some but anymore spending and I'd probably be better of keeping the 1080 haha

im sure the stock EK ones will do a good enough job

Isn't 3.5GB enough for most titles at 1440p?

Welp, I'm getting even more confused about SLI'ing the 970s

Yup agree, EK pads are likely still an upgrade from stock pads too. The Fujipoly pads are tough to justify unless you flat out just want (without factoring cost) to create the best overclocking environment you can. They are super expensive to buy all the pads you would need. One package is not enough unless you buy a whole sheet. It may not even increase overclocking at all. No guarantees (but it did for me). It's NEVER a cost effective decision, EVER to install them. I couldn't even measure before and after temps. It's mostly GPU bling and knowing that you've got the best installed... expectations that are any higher will likely lead to disappointment... tongue.gif

Short answer, it depends smile.gif. Sometimes it will be other times it will NOT be. VRAM usage is dynamic. It depends on the title, options (like AA and DSR) enabled and resolution. You can guarantee that newer AAA games are using more textures, etc. and the need to store in VRAM increases. Even "low end" cards are sporting 4 to 6GB now. When you run out of VRAM you won't crash, you'll chug... (gets swapped to disk which is the slowest thing in anyone's PC even with SSD in RAID 0).

A quick search found this:
http://www.tweaktown.com/tweakipedia/90/much-vram-need-1080p-1440p-4k-aa-enabled/index.html

IMO unless the price for a 970 was DIRT CHEAP (cannot refuse) I would sell it for the "going rate" and apply that money towards a single card that has more performance than 970's in SLI (980Ti or higher). You will not only be faster but will have more video memory and if you choose to upgrade to SLI again down the road you won't be stuck with (2) 970's worth even less than now smile.gif.

A GTX970 with EK block and backplate is half the price of a new GTX1070/980Ti (they're about the same price here in Brazil) and I already have one, so it seems pretty tempting to get another one.

Unless I'm going to sell my 970 and block+backplate, I'll be losing quite a lot of money, and in the end I think it's not going to be worth the hassle.

e.g:
Brand new GTX970 = 1000BRL, around 300USD (note that everything here is DOUBLE the price compared to the US) + block + backplate = 1700BRL, somewhat around 485USD total.
If I were going to sell my GTX970 with block and backplate, I'l be selling for the price of a new GTX970

Brand new GTX 980Ti/1070 = 2000BRL, around 550USD + wb + backplate = nearly 3000BRL, which is about 1K USD



So, is it worth the expense of getting a single 980Ti/1070 for the price of 2 970s?
I'm REALLY confused.

You need to give way more info ....flashing what? how, with what program etc...

Did you reboot after the Flash ?

Hopefully you flashed the DP to the DP and DD to DD bios ? look at the Official PDF with the Official Bios's at gigabyte , just don't use @vga to flash them....
