I have to admit, I'm a huge fan of EK full cover blocks and although I did see a company that makes blocks for the cards I'm hesitant to break away from EK...

It could be a deal breaker IMO... not sure..

Have a slight prob after months of being stable. Powered on comp today and got green vertical lines after bios splash screen. Had to Reboot twice and booted into Windows. Played wow a little bit and no problems. Played overwatch and it crashed midway through or towards the end on both games I played. Down clocked the graphics card after the first crashed still did it.

980ti g1 gaming overclock was stable for months till now. No change in driver's recently or anything just shut it down last night turned on today and problems. Is it the card?

Windows install is two weeks old and latest drivers except for today's new ones

depends on how heavily you used it in those months and how much heat was being output. It could be electromigration at work on the core but I'm betting its the VRAM. You really need auxiliary cooling pads on the VRAM on the backplate side of the PCB because they do get hot after being OCed contrary to popular belief.

Yup agree.. thermals issues are really the main thing to ever worry about. I'm also taking a guess that your thermal compound and/or thermal pads have seen better days based on some assumption and basic logic.

Typically if a GPU is running hot all the time..(this isn't the only way it can happen but to make my point) I mean like closed case, no supplemental fans (Ghetto cool Tech), bad airflow, a combination, etc.. it is going to "dry out" the TIM and thermal pads to some degree. I think we've all seen pictures of bad pads.

for example (I just found these quick, I didn't bother searching for a 9xx card but the same thing can happen):
Hole in VRM pad

PADs/TIM dries up



Another assumption is that you have either one of two issues:
(1) All you need to do is replace the pads/tim and you're good as new again!
(2) There's been too much heat damage and there is a faulty component.. time for RMA


Heat is going to be your GPU's enemy... that's why we see MASSIVE triple slot coolers on some of these GPUs. It is why people install water blocks. It is something that we tend to not pay much attention to until there is a problem however IMO overkill cooling doesn't exist....

Overkill cooling is an insurance policy.

Good luck to you please let us know how the GPU maintenance works out.

PS. I recommend using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut TIM and Fujipoly thermal pads. It is what I use and I cannot be any happier with both.

Hey guys!
I want to replace my thermal paste and/or thermal pads on my 980 Ti G1.
I have Arctic MX-4 at home and no thermal pads.
Do I have to buy Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or I will be fine with my Arctic MX-4?
Could you provide me the width/height/length for the thermal pads? I found their dimensions on EKWB site, but I think for default cooling system the dimensions will be different...

Thanks a lot:

I run ghetto cooling fan on it. And fan curve hits 100% around 70c but player unknown did take it to 80c before thy patched it. I went ahead and ordered a 1080 ti. I'll prob rma this for a new one maybe to keep as backup

MX-4 is good, no need to buy anything else if you've already got that.

The pads, ugh.. I always forget to write this down but someone emailed gigabyte and got an answer! I don't want to give you the wrong info that might be the best bet. I only know what I need for my EK blocks.

Guys I bought a G1 gaming 980 ti last week on special, it has Samsung memory and an ASIC of 86.8%. Stable at 1600-1615 Mhz and 4000Mhz on ram in superposition and firestrike. Is it worth modding the bios or should I let it be? has anyone killed their gpu with modded bios?

Wow impressive 86% may be the highest we've seen here yet


Yes the MOD BIOS will certainly help in all instances however one may benefit a little more than another but overall they all benefit. Even if you cannot overclock higher you'll be able to allow more power and eliminate throttling, etc.

Nope we're not doing anything extreme here, as always flash at your own risk but as long as you watch your temps and use a custom fan curve you should be just fine.

Any questions feel free to ask (detailed info in the OP). I'm curious to see how the MOD BIOS works for you.

Looks like I have a competitor thumb.gif

Can you post your FireStrike / Superposition scores ?Fire Strike link would be nice.
