[Official] Nvidia GTX 980 Ti Owners Club - Page 889

post #8881 of 16162
I have two EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTWs and I am etremely happly with the temperatures while gaming. Using EVGA Precision X fan profiles can get these cards running at what to me are amazing load temps. Of course I traded up from 2 R9 290x's which always ran at 94c as throttle starts at 95c. Even though AMD's CEO has stated 95c is well within the safe operating range of those cards I admit the temps made me very uncomfortable. For those I was considering water cooling but don't see the need for these 980 Ti's. I just built the rig and got in an Acer XB270HU bprz G-Sync monitor yesterday. I have not yet had time to try it out but am looking forward to it (even though I am a bit skeptical I have read good things about the technology). Bottom line I really like these cards but admit they were an impulse buy and I likely should have waited until next year when I have a feeling Nvidia is going to come out with something revolutionary. Either way these cards are fun albiet major overkill. Once again I only finished the rig yesterday and have not had time to really see what the cards can do and have had no time to try overclocking.

Are there any waterblocks for the EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTW? Last I checked there were none. I want to get 2 and overclock them but not extremely and Classified seems overkill for my situation, FTW looks like a nice middle ground but I want to water cool them (VRM too).

Yes, I know as long as temps are good voltage can be high, but I want to find a good compromise between clocks and volts, without having to flash the bios every single time I want to change the voltages for testing. I know HOW to modify the BIOS, just not WHICH row in the voltage table controls the voltage range/max amount of voltage.

Can someone tell me which current line of MSI 980 TI is reference design? I am using it with my Aquacomputer Waterblock.

Cause the EVGA SC is sucking hard!

MSI GTX 980Ti 6GD5 uses reference PCB.

Though you're running 2 cards, I'm only running a single one, I just bought a Recertifed SC+ ACX 2.0+ a few weeks ago when EVGA had them for $550, I could have gone for 2, but trying to limit my spending as I have already spent more than I intended, I was gunning for a dirt cheap 970 or 780, or even a 980 if found below $350 (leave open possibility of going SLI later), but when I saw the 980 Ti for over $150 below normal retail, I couldn't help myself, as I had already justified spending upwards of $400 if it was on the right card (including some 290X 8GB models), I just got my system put together and finished yesterday as well. i5 4690K, 980 Ti, etc.

Haven't even gotten the OS installed yet, but idle temps seem to be stable on the CPU, so not to worried about first build/boot (not my first build, been building for almost 20 years) hiccups and issues.



But I was wondering, what are your gaming operating/load temps for the GPU? (what resolution are you running? I'm still stuck on 1080p, but will be occasionally powering 2 or 3 monitors, all different sizes, Primary is 27", 2nd is 40" TV, 3rd is an older 1600x900 20" display)



At least gives me an idea of what to look forward to. I'm coming up from a GTX 760 I bought almost a year ago as a side step upgrade from my pair of overclocked 560 Ti's in SLI. Temp drops (WoooHOOOO, I was so excited, borderline aroused when I saw the operating temps at full load, some games maxed at 1080p on this thing, 40-60+fps, and never breaking 65C), power consumption dropped almost in half, tad bit of performance boost in a few games (that didn't support SLI or not optimized for it, and one or two that enjoyed the 2 fold memory increase up from 1GB, Skyrim/ArmA 3 etc), now I'm going from 760 back to a 200+ Watt card (250W). Prior to the 560 Ti's I was running a single stock speed, reference style cooler GTX 470. I know CPU speed will be a big bump, i7 940 at stock to an i5 4690K, and runs WAY cooler, thats already a given.

Just out of curousity what can of temperatures were you getting that led you to watercool your card? I am running 2 EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTWs in SLI, a build I just completed, and have not yet had time to test it. However I am coming from twin R9 290x's, the top of which ran at 94c while gaming (95c being throttle) with the bottom in the high 80s. While the CEO of AMD has stated 95c is a safe operating temperature for the card I was uncomfortable so switched to the 980 Ti's. I am finding my top card can run in the 70s at idle and am wondering if I should consider water cooling. Therefore my question as to what temperatures you were reaching that let you to want to water cool. I have not yet had time to run the cards under load but I am not getting a good feeling given the idle temp. While I can get the temperatures down significantly using a fan profile the profile is very aggressive, kind of loud and does not get the top card to what I would consider an acceptable idle temp while under heavy fan load. Thanks.

How do these look?

Here's a quote from another user where those voltages are explained. Hopefully this is helpful.

Sorta yeah. The problem is I don't have those 2 extra rows on my Hybrid. I think I have to change the actual P00,P02 power state voltages.
