Hi, someone could send me the bios of GTX 960 Point of View ( could be any model)?

A friend did a bios mod but didn't save the original bios. I tried all bios of bios collection TechPowerUp ( but none of them have Point of View model).

Hi guys!

I'm new here, in this forum. I ahve a Gigabyte GTX 960 4gb Windforce 2 GPU. Do u reccomend use custom bios, or tweak voltage? I can run my card at 1480 MHz (GPU) and 1950 MHz (memory) without any problem. Can i make it a bit better, about 2-5 plus fps?

Greetings from Hungary smile.gif

I honestly wouldn't bother. You already have a decent overclock on your GPU and the minimal real world gains, 1 - 2fps at most in most actual games if you are lucky, are not worth the added risk of modding the BIOS and overvolting beyond what the card already allows. These more extreme measures are usually taken purely for bragging rights and to achieve higher synthetic benchmark scores. While some people may use their GPUs overclocked like this 24/7 it isn't recommended for the average user that is trying to get "more for their money". In most cases where more extreme overclockers do run their GPUs beyond their limits they fully understand the risks involved and know their GPU could die much more quickly. Performance seekers often get burned by trying to achieve more extreme clocks only to have their GPU burn out on them way before it's time. Save yourself the effort and potential stress and enjoy your GPU within it's engineered limits.

This is just my 2c but IMO, these measures should be for bragging rights only.

Hey now , just fitted one of these 960's in my main machine , I couldn't turn it down at just over £100 ... it's a Gigabyte GTX 960 Windforce 2X OC ... the 2G one.

It's replacing my trusty old HD 5830 Xtreme driving my Achieva Shimian monitor, although I don't do much gaming (maybe a walkabout in Skyrim now and again ...)
I have been doing some video editing recently so this should come in handy!

Here's a few screenies of some overclocking fun and games ...



I suppose I could have got something more 'up to date' for a few more pounds ... maybe, but this seemed a good deal ...

Hey,
I got a GTX960 from Gigabyte, model number : GV-N960WF2OC-4GD
I wonder why there is two power connector on the card because one 8pin connector can provide a maximum of 150W.
The GTX960 is rated 120W TDP so even with overclock I doubt that the TDP goes skyhigh and exceed what a 8pin connector can supply.

Most GTX960 only have one 8pin connector and I know that the 6pin connector alone can't supply the card by itself (75W max for a 6pin connector). With 6pin + 8 pin we have 225W of power which in my opinion is way more that any GTX960 will ever need. Maybe it's for OC purpose I'm guessing.

My current gaming build is using a RVZ01 case which is a very small mini ITX case (cable management is a nightmare lol) and I was wondering if I can only supply my GPU with one 8pin power cable because in such a small case every cubic centimeter that I can save is helpfull )

I have one of those cards but it is only a 2GB card with two 6 pin connectors. Are you thinking about a 8 pin adaptor that has two six pins out?

Boy u have a awsome gpu, like i saw u have rev 1.0 and yes u need both connectors to power up. I have one exactly like yours 4G but rev 1.10 with 2six pin connectors and in overclock it sucks only 1750mhz on gpu pi. Enjoy it at maximum bro, one question : what asic quality did he have?
post #860 of 865
Yeah I think my card has 2x6pin power connector because I remember that I don't use the 2 extra pin from the wires.
But when I look on the internet with the model number (GV-N960WF2OC-4GD) all pages even from gigabyte tells that it has a 6pin and 8pin connector.

Otherwise it's a great GPU it's very quiet and the zero RPM mode is lovely my computer is very quiet even when gaming in ultra quality thumb.gif
