Tri-SLI just isn't worth it. Avoid going Tri-SLI. Scaling is poor, and not too many games support it.

Yeah I agree but if the 980 ti ends up dropping to $300 after the release it may be cheaper than taking such a hard loss on two. I don't know just a thought

980Ti will not drop down to $300 when Pascal drops.

If say $500ish...
post #11295 of 16103
i don't know . .just before the 980 dropped you could sell a gently used 780ti for $500 easy.

then BOOM you were lucky to get $350.

still no sense in throwing more good money towards bad. that's tech, you cut your loss and move on.

Final fantasy XIV is a CPU intensive game moreso than GPU. I wouldn't use it's benchmark to test for stability tbh.

The benchmark is engineered to test GPU

@ GunBlade ... You may be the 1st 980Ti user that can pass Heavensward but not Unigine Heaven at the same settings ... many of us found we had to lower our clocks 13Mhz to pass Heavensward along with seeing 3-4c higher load temps (on air) ... more info/links HERE ... Your right on regarding Furmark, it's day has come and gone! Maybe post your system specs and setup along with some screenshots of your bench's to get more feedback ... especially over in the G1 thread (linked above) where Laithan and ssiperko initially got the ball rolling?

@PedroC1999 Your comments are right on! ... +R thumb.gif ... Penryn confused.gif

Please correct me if there has been an update? ... But earlier in this thread? or in one of the Modded Bios threads, it was well documented not to run "daisy chained" PCI-E power cables to your 980Ti(s) when overclocking and especially with a custom bios with modded power tables ... could melt a connector or cause hard to find instability redface.gif .... disregard if your running stock wink.gif

Nice job troubleshooting the heat problem, also looks nice(er)! thumb.gif

"Daisy-Chained" PCI-E power cables???

Hello, registered here to ask a question that's been bugging me for some time now.

I've got a MSI Gaming 6g 980 TI in december, and I've been struggling with it's temps.
Some info first: Asic 74.8; using an old P8Z68-v pro/gen3 motherboard that has only one 3.0 x16 slot, and even this '3.0' works in a very strange way, according to many people who tried using new cards on that mobo. Also, maybe this info is important: using a 120hz monitor and not using VSync anywhere.

Anyway, everything I'll describe below was attempted both in the first (3.0 x16) slot and the second (2.0 x8) one. The FPS results between those two options were completely, absolutely the same - not even a 1FPS difference was spotted by me.

I've tried playing with 100-109 Power Limit; going to +30mv at most; and +100 core / +250 mem (that would put me at ~1467-1480 mhz depending on what's happening in game).

The vast majority of games play at ~72-74 degrees on max settings; in case some game has a slightly... suboptimal thing that puts GPU at instant 100% load (for example, in Diablo 3, if you don't limit the framerate to 200, you reach astronomical ~800 FPS on the lobby screen), my card slowly but steadily goes up to 83-85 degrees where it starts throttling.

I have a rather good air-cooling case - HAF 932. I've tried using a really strong side 200mm fan, even a 120mm fan at the bottom of the case (getting the air in, just like the side fan) - those things don't really help.

The most brutal thing, however, is World of Warcraft. If I use the Nvidia MFSAA settings suggested by GeForce Experience (not using the DSR settings), I get almost instant 82+ in any large zone. Even if I use some other AA setting, it still hovers around 78-84.
I've tried playing with the fan curve, but it doesn't really matter because I see such numbers even when I test it with constant 100% fan speed.

Is something wrong with my card? In my country MSI doesn't provide any service for videocards - I'll have to speak with the retailer, and unfortunately the retailer I purchased this card from is known for being incredibly customer-unfriendly, so I don't really want to go there unless I'm 100% certain the card needs replacement.

Maybe a silly question, but have you verified that your fan curve is actually applied? Does you hardware monitor show 100% fan speed?
