Yeah, that seems to be the case, sadly. Which is a shame as it was a real good deal (a misprice in fact). Typically, there were five different Warehouse listings at the same price and I managed to pick the broken one. rolleyes.gif

It's a strange fault though. I was expecting the worst anyway, but maybe just an outright dead card or a dodgy fan or something. The fans had a little dust on them, so it'd obviously been used for a while by whoever bought it originally, so I wonder if they half-killed some part of the power circuitry with a bad overvolt or something, then returned it as unwanted. Amazon obviously must do nothing in the way of testing for it to have been resold.

My thought was that I don't want to write the firmware from the first card to the second because it's larger so if the ROM on the second card isn't large enough it might brick (soft?) the card.

Have a look at the picture below and let me know what you think. thumb.gif

the numbers aren't size but version. the 32 were the older hynix ram and newer 41 for the samsung ram. everything (else) is exactly the same.

i have seen folks try flashing the newer (41) on an older card (32) and get a black screen (aka brick). but that might have been user error since i did the same accidentally (RMA'd a ":sammy card and got back an older hynix one) w/o issue. but it gain me nothing as far as performance or OCing.

i'd suggest just forgo trying to flash it.

size makes no difference for the bios file. however as loon has said the 3 stands for Hynix and the 4 stands for Samsung. I have 4b which means Samsung second revision

So while I am in limbo with my 3rd 980Ti I currently have my my other two running in SLI. I have not been doing a lot of gaming, but a couple days ago I loaded Battlefront and was NOT happy with what I saw. My gaming monitor is a LG 31MU97 which is 4096 x 2160. The graphics looked amazing but their was a lot of stuttering during the videos. Is it unreasonable to think you should be able to game in 4K with a pair of these cards? So now I'm faced with the dilemma of selling my cards and upgrading or lowering my game settings. So would a pair of 1080s under water solve my issues? I have also looked at the new Titan X, but after reading their forum have noticed a lot of people are having failures with them.
post #14357 of 16235
i would suggest seeing if the SLI profile could use some tweeking. guru3d forums might help w/that.

also the rumor mill is pumping out about the 1080TI getting released after the first of the year and maybe a pascal refresh.

so maybe hang out, see if anything comes of that and avoid making a new purchase right now.

So decided to replace my thermal paste on my 980 ti hof. First used Arctic silver and what a fail. At least I already had it on hand. Was still getting 74-80C on abient room of 22C on the games I play. I decided then to get the best I can get here and that was cooler master mastergel maker nano. Amazing thermal paste cause my temps drop up to 10C or maybe a little bit more versus stock and arctic silver 5. In games like BF4, Rainbow 6: siege ETC it only goes to about 70C max but average about 60-66C and that's with a ambient temps today of about 26-28C. So a win for me.

I'm playing on a pg279q and I think it's worth spending a bit extra cash to get the better thermal paste to get much lower temps
