Anyone know how to fix this?

I flashed a BIOS on my Ln2 mode switch on my 980 TI Matrix, but it screwed stuff up in the process. I used the correct BIOS according to the thread on HWBOT, the Samsung Ln2 BIOS "Elmor" released. ( The card has Samsung on it)

Did the same thing I always do before flashing, disable GPU in nvflash, then cmd prompt nvflash -6 BIOSNAME.rom and went through the prompts. Then restart re-enable card etc.


Now the card is throwing up loads of issues, no display output on boot, so no BIOS splash screen etc. Once I get to windows it will load NV Driver and give display output, but GPU Tweak 2 was giving me an error saying "BIOS load fail" and not opening. I could wait ages and eventually get GPU Tweak 2 to open and benchmark & play games etc, but upon reboot, no display output at all. I'd have to go back to normal BIOS mode, boot up then power down, go back to Ln2 switch and boot up again.


I tried flashing back over the BIOS with a new one, but I get this error:



Tried everything I can think of, using GPU as secondary card, DOS, and 3 different BIOS for my card. I also tried using the "safe mode" button on the card, that re-flashes the STOCK BIOS, but that doesn't work either. It gives me a "recovery fail" error.

Is there someone who knows why afterburner retain my overclock even after reboot and even if I don't put the tick on "apply overclock at system startup" and even with afterburner closed?

The strange things is that it retain the overclock settings but not the Dan curve. Is this because I saved that profile as the first?

Another questions. Please answer both.I'm trying to overclock to 1440MHz without any overvolt using 105% power target.
In gpuz I see vrel and SLI.

I suppose that sli is referred to the fact that I have sli enabled and vrel to reliability.
Is vrel something "to solve" or my oc can live with that limitation? What is the oc parameter to tweak to make vrel go away?

Thanks

Vrel just means nVidia Boost isn't increasing voltage automatically any more. nVidia Boost automatically changes voltage once temperature exceeds 62C, as long as your GPU isn't crashing above 62C you should be fine.

you have always an answer, your presence in this thread is precious. smile.gif thanks.

do you have any experience with MSI Afterburner?
It seems that it retain my overclock even when the app is closed, even if I don't put the tick to apply overclock at startup,
is this normal since I saved the profile?
It's good that it retain the overclock, I like it but I don't like that it retain the overclock but not the fan curve.

Another question please.
What about RAM overclock? Does RAM overclock brings some visible performacne improvements? Should I OC the RAM too?

click USER instead of AUTO to enable your custom fan curve. the profile will remain active until you click on default. but are you saying its still is going after a reboot?

personally i don't OC vram unless benching. though at higher resolutions it can benefit. if you don't need to back down your core speed (too much) - go for it.

Edit:
sorry lays, im' needing sleep too much help you ATM.

however, with the latest joe dirt's nvflash - no need to go through all that - just drag the bios in nvflash.exe in window explorer and you're good to go.

Tried it, same error. Literally tried everything I can possibly think of.

custom fan curve works ok, but only with afterburner started and yes, my overclock still there also if I close afterburner and I reboot the PC.
is this normal?

wish I could help but this is exactally why I leave the bios stock. A 2% overclock gain and 2% fps gain just isn't worth bricking a card.

I used to use MSI Afterburner, but switched to EVGA Precision X cause I prefer the interface. MSI Afterburner should retain the OC until either: the display driver crashes or the MSI service is prevented from starting when restarting Windows.

Profiles are useful, and you can set "2D" and "3D" profiles to be used when apps are opened. Saving the profile won't result in Afterburner auto setting the GPU overclock unless you specify the profile in the "2D" and "3D" settings. The fan curve is a bit weird, you have to enable "Custom Fan Curve" in the settings to use that, and set the fan mode to "Auto".

Overclocking VRAM is useful for higher resolutions, but also has a very minor boost (1%~2%) even at 1080p. Basically, unless you're running 4K, focus on the core clock first, then set the VRAM clock at the end.
