some (newer) versions of NVflash have given me issues flashing back to STOCK bios but would flash MODDED bios.using an older version worked fine. so if you havbe an issue with stock try this one - works fine for me:

btw, it's suggested to COPY the settings from a modded bios - its pretty easy and you'll get a bit of understanding what is "going on".
Thanks, that version of nvflash worked like a charm. The bios wasn't the correct one as I ended up with a black screen but no biggie, found another one online. So I tried flashing max air but even properly following instructions I end up at the same original problem. Maybe my card is a newer revision or something and the max air one is based off an older bios? That's my only guess since I did the same thing for the Titan and had no problem. I could use the other modded bios but since I'm on air it's a little risky having voltage so high.
Is there some guide on modding a current working bios? Or does that require knowledge of hexadecimal and whatnot?
use maxwell bios tweaker (also added kepler bios tweaker):
MnK_BiosTweakers.zip 199k .zip file
here is a guide (in german so translate in google or enable in chrome):
pay attention to:Unlock volt regulator --- Only for 980 Ti / Titanium X users needed
(this is where KEPLER bios tweaker is used)
andSetting Voltage Table (980 Ti, Titanium X) --- Volt regulated (Beta)
however i believe to have found a discrepancy:
Column 1 = volts generally for the entire card
. 2 Column left towards possibly lower throttle limit?
. 2 Column right side = min. OC controller
. 3 Column left towards any upper limit throttle?
. 3 Column right side = max. OC regulator.
1. row single entry max voltage allowed
2. row left - min boost voltage/right - max boost voltage
3. row left - min temp voltage/right - max temp voltage
the guide show how to find and set all the voltages the same - this disables boost. a quick and dirty method:
set row 1 (single entry) and both row 3 (min/max entries for temp) the same; the latter will disable any temp throttling that MAY occur
as low as 62c. afa row 2. for boost voltage; i set mine 1212.5mv min and 1268.8mv max; this allows lower voltage for my boost clock gaming but allows me to adjust the voltage in AB (and boosts higher) for benching:
and if you're wondering about the power targets (look for the 75000):
after increasing MAX while benching i noticed the max was ~330 watts, so i set that for 100% and gave it some headroom for later. and yeah, i do not account for the PCI-E power setting those targets for reasons.
btw, sorry the bios i posted din't work out, was sure it was stock for the sammy ram cards - which came later (84.00.41.00.90 bios) i had since RAM'd my card and got an older one back (84.0036.00.98 w/hynix ram) . .with 66% ASIC as opposed to 72% that i sent in.
oh yeah . .ASIC . .mind you when setting/adjusting voltage in AB or PX there won't be fine grain control - it may bump up anywhere from 12mv to 36mv per adjustment. ASIC will dictate how much of a bump and how many of those you have before hitting max voltage. atleast comparing what i had to what i have now i believe to have noticed a difference.
have fun but BE SAFE!
