How that? There only one way/side how yo plug them smile.gif

Sounds like a bad connection/cable if all 3 are not running ( 1 fan could be a bad fan), unless you shorted something putting the water block on?

I am amazed by your scores... biggrin.gif    thumbsupsmiley.png
I did some testing (quickly) this morning and I'm seeing something interesting, which doesn't help me explain your scores much either.

Here is the basic information I gathered from your system:
* You mentioned that you overclocked your GPU @ 1610Mhz roughly.
* You mentioned that your VRAM is running @ 8Ghz (+500Mhz)
* You have a Haswell quad core w/HT (I don't know if HT was enabled or not)
* You don't seem to be overclocking your CPU at all (but superposition doesn't report cpu speed correctly)


So I did a test of my own... I disabled SLI on my system and rebooted.
* I overclocked my GPU @ 1625Mhz
* I overclocked my VRAM to 8Ghz effective (+500Mhz)
* I'm using a MOD BIOS
* My GPU has a full cover block under water
* I have a hex core with HT enabled
* My CPU is overclocked to just under 4.7Ghz

Comparing those basic stats one could argue that I would have an advantage over you and should be able to at least meet, but likely exceed your score.

But I didn't... mad.gif



I really don't understand this...

So then I said to myself, AH HA! I bet I know why, it is because I have HT enabled. Let me go into my BIOS and disable HT.. rebooted, ran the same test and got the same score.

Then I even overclocked my CPU to 4.8Ghz... and actually got a slightly lower score...So it looks like CPU speed, number of cores and cache size (arguably cut in half per core when HT is enabled) have no impact on the score of this test. If the CPU doesn't matter much than would the chipset be playing a role (advancements from IVY-e to Haswell?!? I mean I'm even running quad channel memory clocked @ 2426Mhz (32GB)...


You may have a golden sample there bud... wow... I just don't understand why I'm not beating your score lol!!
cheers.gif

Can anyone else explain this? What am I missing here?


EDIT: Looking at 3DMark I am now seeing scores that I would expect to see in comparison..

Mine

Yours (I can also now see that HT was disabled)
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/12468010


Can you post a FFXIV free benchmark (on MAX PRESET) score?

I'm starting to be a little suspicious of Superposition...

CPU wont increase the score unless its the component that is causing a bottleneck on a PC. If you look at my vs your Firestrike you will see I still have a higher graphics score, you have a higher overall score due to your CPU being much stronger at multitasking but in gaming our CPUs wont make a difference as neither reach 100%.

What is FFXIV? :|

Oh an I wanted to try the custom bios but I'm getting an error when trying to make a backup of my driver using GPU-Z "BIOS reading not supported on this device"

FFXIV is a very demanding gpu benchmark.You can get it here:
http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/benchmark/

Remember to put every graphic setting to its maximum then run. It also generates the most heat out of pretty much all gpu benchmarks so watch your temps

Never had bios saving problems maybe try another driver and/or other version og GPU-Z
-nvm never heard of somebody extracting intel hd graphics biggrin.gif

If someone have unlocked BIOS for PALIT GTX970 JETSTREAM please post it here.I find very little info for this card on that topic.
If someone more experienced can tweak my bios for more than 1550mhz that will be nice. My OC with the original bios is 1515-1525mhz in-game. In Benches goes higher.After flashing core is 1530-1543mhz.

If you wanted me to mod your bios, you can decide if you just want higher voltage and set the rest in software or if you want everything built into the bios (clocks,voltage,power limit) -no oc software needet anymore
If you want the clocks built into the bios , I would need to know mem and core clock.
I need the max voltage you want for your card in both cases.

Im pretty experienced with bios modding and just moddet another 970bios the other day.

Laithan(the creator of this thread) is pretty good at it too.

VERY close.... smile.gif

1631Mhz single GPU (my record for FS)
4.67Ghz CPU (going to try again @ 4.8Ghz)
http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/12532427/fs/12524531#




I think you were at 1636Mhz right?
This is some crazy stuff biggrin.gif

Here's a link with all 3 scores together

Yes I want, but I really dont know what option is best for me.If its not too dificult for you maybe you can do both bios versions so i can decide from experience which is best for me - everything built into the bios or just want higher voltage & OC myself.Ill give you my original stock bios and the last one i made. I cant go higher tha 1543mhz which very little over 1515mhz on original bios;.or RAM I had +750mhz offset but now i dont know
Original bios:

the one im testing now:

TBH I would consider that the effort is kind and should not be doubled wink.gif

More importantly you don't know your max stable boost clocks yet, you haven't thoroughly tested with the MOD BIOS to know. There are usually Mhz gains (not guaranteed) with the MOD due to the voltage bumps.

This is a Gigabyte thread so I'd like to remain focused on them here (of course I have no problem if someone wants to help, please go for it) however you the tweaks are certainly not specific to gigabyte and I would encourage anyone looking to MOD a BIOS with another manufacturer's GPU (excluding a reference design) to utilize the MUMOD BIOS' as a "reference" (do NOT flash them directly but instead compare side by side and copy to YOUR BIOS ).

There's some things to know as some vendors limit voltage, others require a 3rd party tool to access.. so even when voltage is modded in the BIOS it does not always increase voltage on the card itself (Gigabyte and MSI are the easiest one's and do NOT lock voltage but there are others... EVGA (a four letter word) is a mixed bag, one must dig deeper on those). redface.gif

Best of luck to you!
