What top quality paste are you using? Also the above post was correct if your scores decrease most likely it is due to instability. These instabilities are not apparent on graphs since they will not show any throttle of any kind. Memory errors cause exactly what you are seeing. Lower the memory a bit.

If I'm doing some serious gaming or trying to get a better score while bench marking i'll ramp it up to 100% and then the temp sits around 64-65'c. The cooler on my card is great but the sound from the fans is unwanted.

even at 60'c the overclock cannot go above 1450mhz. and my voltage is around 1.24v changing it to 1.194v, stock 1.212v and higher hasn't done a thing either.

Also maxwell runs better with less volts or so I've heard from everyone in the HOF thread. but even lowering it doesn't help me. Kinda pissed that I pay premium for a card and your 980ti FTW can out do me haha.

My Zotac 980TI AMP! Omega with the Extreme BIOS flashed on it, at 1460/8000 doesn't ever exceed 70ºC. ****ty 68.5% ASIC, and default fan profile. Fans don't even start to spin until 60ºC.

Maxwell is different from past generations when it comes to heat and voltage. The gpu can't do anything with increased voltages generally until you get into sub-zero temps.
High temps on memory will cause instability. High temps on GPU will also cause instability if you've gone and screwed around with the power limits. Heat increases resistance. Also, increased heat scews around with quality power delivery from the phasing.

It sounds to me like you already have everything figured out though, so why are you asking questions?

I use Cryorig CP5 cryo paste. Cryorig have smashed the air/water cooling market recently and their paste is amazing too.

Well Maybe I have done something wrong. I've overclocked previous cards quite far and this one card won't go high, it should do 1500/2000 easily. 8pack got 1600mhz core, and 2150mhz memory using an air cooled 980ti HoF. he got the silicon lottery, but either way whatever I have done I can only get to around 1450mhz, it's kinda frustrating.

I don't like EVGA or other brands that much, I find them too popular and I like supporting the smaller brands and KFA2 have some great cards. Stock bios gets me similar results and similar temps, so I used a custom bios to stop the auto boost and to stop thermal throttling which I thought was hindering my overclock, but after doing some testing it hasn't really gained me anything

Well, you asked for "suggestions" and temps can affect stability. Sounds like the cooler works as expected when the fans get going. Idk, silicon lottery and all that... (there aint nothing wrong with a FTW card btw)

Hi all,

I hope some1 can help me. I think i may have overwritten my copy of my original bios. I am not really sure. But just to be sure i am asking if any 1 can sent me the original bios of the GV-N98TWF3OC-6GD from gigabyte. The F10 version.. So i can compare them

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5560#ov

Thx in advance ...

I think Nvidia intentionally slowed down the last generation video cards with their drivers. I have two 980Ti's and now they throttle down in 3Dmark. I have a custom BIOS and EK waterblocks connected to two 420mm rads, keeping my cards nice and cool below 40c. My cards would always stay at 1506mhz runnning 3Dmark but after the latest drivers I now throttle and my once solid clocks oscillate. I think Nvidia did this because the Overclocked 980 Ti beats the Founders/reference GTX 1080.

Barely. They have a better case to sell the 1070, which does truly get beat by the 980 TI. However, latest OC benches show that the 980 TI is even behind the 1070 now. Bring on the conspiracy theorists biggrin.gif

I just SLI'd two 980Ti's without prior experience SLI-ing GPUs, how's the performance scaling on the 980Ti? Keep in mind that I'm playing at 1080p.
