post #8531 of 16143
I'm not to knowledgeable about bios editing with gpu's (never done it before), so I'm thinking of getting a cheap used nvidia card to have a test round on. Thinking a 680 or a 760 region, around £100, so at least it can be used as a playable settings backup card if my 980ti ever dies, unless a maxwell card would be a better bet like a used 950. I'd rather brick a £100 gpu than a £500 one XD

Even bricked it isn't hard to unbrick. I don't even know why the term is still used today with igps and dual tri quad slots. Maybe back in the day when you had 1 slotted mobos and no backup display devices to fix the card, but these days its nothing to dread anymore.

Ok I'm hoping someone can explain this a little better to me . Sorry if I sound so new to this . Ok my Evga 980ti hc card is getting regulations in gpuz. Like vreg all the time sometime it even hits a power reg. While running heaven the gpu never hits even 97 percent usage . Does this mean my card isn't all that great. The card this one replaced had a lower asic score but also scored higher in every benchmark I ran at it . I was almost thinking of seeking it and going to the kingpins or classified cards because I have heard you can change the bios to allow for more power and these cards have more power input via plug ins . So is the card I have right now not that great. I can Rma it because it arrived with the corner bent . But it's not having any crash issues as the other one . Oh yea one more thing that is going on is sometimes when I fire my computer up the mb stops and won't load Windows and the vga voltage light comes on on my mother board. I have a Asus rampage revenge

It sounds like you have a few different things going on there. For one thing, vRel is perfectly fine and normal. For the power reg... is it vOP, or Pwr? vOP means you're being limited by your BIOS (it's a safety feature so you don't melt your card) and Pwr means you've hit the max amount of juice that the manufacturer allows you to put into the card. Both are perfectly normal and aren't a sign of anything "wrong" with the card so much as they're there to help you diagnose throttling and fine tune your overclock.

As for the vga voltage light bit.... make sure that your card is fully seated in the MoBo socket, and make sure that the power cables are fully connected (they should "snap") to the card.

It's is pwr. And ok thanks. Just wondering why the card this one replaced never did this . One more question. If I decide to go with the 980ti classified 2.0 is there a water block made for this card yet? And would I need to getv2 of these right off the bat or could I just buy one for now and save my money and run it in sli. I think the classified would run at the settings of the hc but it just seems there is so much more performance potential with the classified and kingpin

If you are wondering whether or not water blocks exist for your card you can check here: http://configurator.ekwb.com/ It's not definitive since other vendors make water blocks too, but it's a good place to start. smile.gif

"Much more performance potential" is a loaded term. Potential, yes, but you're ultimately going to be at the mercy of the silicon lottery. I'd imagine your current card is probably running in the 1470-1490mhz range, which means that realistically you're probably only looking at an improvement of 30-50mhz with the stock cooler.. If you're seriously into min-maxing and getting the absolute most out of a card that you can, then sure... go for it -- especially if you can either return your current card or sell it for roughly what you spent without having to pay any sort of commissions or whatnot. But if you eBay it, you're looking at an extra $150-500 to upgrade to the Classy or KPE after you pay your eBay and PayPal fees...,so unless money simply isn't an issue, at some point you have to question whether the modest (literally maybe a difference of 1-2fps in games) is worth the cost premium.

If you do decide to go that way and get the EVGA Classified, the EK 780 Classy block is compatible with the 980ti version as well.

Right now I can only get 75 MHz added to core clock which puts it at 1490 MHz using k boost in precision x16. The cards aisc is 74.5 I would think it is decent . And now I'm getting vreg and pwr. Regs. Which to me seems the card has hit its wall for performance
