Sure! I monitor everything that's happening using both MSI AB and gpu-z - and checking inside the case to see that the fans actually work.

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.

Have you set up a fan curve (more aggressive) for the card or is it running at the stock settings? Consider using 4x 120mm fans on the side of that case. That is what I did when I was air cooling. That 200mm fan is fine, but the 4x 120 helped more for the time when gaming as I sped them up to get more air to the card (via fan controller, but is doable with FanXpert, too). I also used that cage fan set up to help get more air to the card.

Please correct me if there has been an update? ...

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

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


Really? I have no idea. If it is like that then I need to fix that. I guess it's "daisy-chained" because it's a single cable with 2 connectors on it. Is it a limitation in the connectors of the cables or what is the issue?

I'd imagine it's a current issue. With modified bios, these cards can pull several times the quoted power draw when using a stock bios. My G1 Gaming pulls just over 400w at 100% and a single cable can't carry 33amps which is roughly the equivalent of 400w.

Okey. I have no idea what my cards is pulling. 1493 / 4001 at 1.274v.

But looking at the power usage in AB the cards uses at most 85%. And I think my modded bios is set to max 400w by Mr.Dark. So I guess that's about 340w and 28 amps

It just depends on the load applied to it, it varies from game to game or app to app. Using a killawatt is the best way to determine your draw. Of course getting a baseline at idle and then under load and finding the difference is your Gpu pull.

+ or - some for CPU usage depending on your load applied

I believe HWinfo also shows individual power usage by component but I always take software reporting with a grain of salt.

Yes I did try that, even with constant 100% it doesn't get any better. To be honest, I'm not sure whether it's an issue of getting it a bit better with extra cooling, my main concern is whether I'm dealing with a faulty card...

Hi!
I'm the owner of a Asus GeForce GTX 980 Ti Strix non-OC version. Would it be possible to just flash the OC-version bios of the STRIX card?
post #11310 of 16124
Hey guys, just got an evga 980ti reference card for 376€ from ebay and want to overclock it. I couldnt find information about the reference cooling concerning the vrms and wanted to be know, whether the are kept cool enough to not die, when overclocking. The card is 8 months old.
