The card isn't bricked, it has 2 BIOS. Only the Ln2 BIOS is messed up. Unfortunately the Ln2 mode is the one that unlocks all the features in GPUTweak, like completely unlocked voltage frown.gif

I care about every ounce of performance I can get, trying to get into the top 20 of the USA on hwbot.org is difficult frown.gif

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.

Generally I play with in 4K DSR so I should try memory oc.
I know that overclocking ram is tricky and few remunerative, so I don't know, probably I will leave the ram as it is.

Gonna try and keep up with this thread, I debated between the Gigabyte G1 and these after a lot of users talking about coil whine I went with the MSI even tho I love the look of the cooler on the gigabyte.

I noticed you're running 980Ti 6G in SLI in the other thread,but I didn't wanna mess that thread up with off topic. I have one 980Ti 6G and considering SLI but I'm worried about the temps. How is your top card in terms of max temperature during games? I'm also running 1440p/144hz so your results will be very valuable for me.

If you don't have a pcie space between your cards they will run hotter than 90% of users liking. The top card will most definitely tempature throttle.

I do.

Then in my experience they should be OK. Mine ran at about 70c at 99% useage with people airflow and fan curve.

Actually I cut 6 ports on the side of my case and put x6 70 cfm fans. So you're not that far off lol.



You can kinda see them here but in the end it was still too hot for me and I went w/c.



Then decided that case wasn't optimal for rads then switched again lol..



It truly never ends..

depending on ASIC, voltage, bios, temp and power target - it will go further.

so yeah, welcome to gpu boost 2.0 thumb.gif

Woooowwww I just assumed it was a glitch.

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.

Make sure not to contact ASUS or it will void their warranty. I contacted them about reapplying their thermal paste, (really wanted to know if I can buy a waterblock) and they said changing anything to the product will void your warranty. Try the various -4 -5 -6 commands on nvflash. Also make sure you are using all the stock bios. But it kinda sounds like its software, so try a system restore.
