Thanks, that's good to know! Yes I'm on 358.50. I've seen so many crazy benchmarks with newer procs I guess I was just a bit paranoid haha. Absolutely loving this card so far, it's really shown me how bad the SLI experience can be even though you get used to it after awhile. It's just the opposite of smooth, the 980 Ti is like butter.

Is it true for the reference 980 Ti design that the power limit is hardwired in and can't really be changed by a BIOS mod (as is shown for the 970 and 980 below)?

I believe you can change the TDP through the BIOS. There's a theoretical limit based on hardware. Reference card is PCIe 6 pin x 2. Here's a couple good reads if you're interested in that.

Well i could see PrecisionX being the issue for me as i have it set to start at start-up in the program and i added it manually and it never starts ups on it's own i always have to click it to get it to run ill try turning it off before putting it to sleep.

Been messing around with different OC combos such as 1.168volts @ 1450 vs 1.148 @1400, vs 1.223 @ 1500 vs 1.255 @ 1550 and I can honestly say that in real world gaming the difference between 1400 and 1550 @ 4k is not worth the added heat on air.. These cards just don't seem to scale as well as Kepler when adding voltage and clocks. The difference from 1400 and 1525 in The Witcher 3 is 2fps, from 36 to 38fps avg (depending on the area of course and settings in game). But my temps go from upper 60c to low 70c to 80c.

There appears to be no point in OC past 1400 in most cases -- unless bench-marking, etc, but I play games with my card not benchmarks. Maybe if you could get on water and get to 1600mhz then it might scale better, but as it is right now, at least at 4k, the gains vs the increase in heat (the requirement to flash to a modded bios) just seems so deficient compared to Kepler.


Really unimpressed with the OC scaling on these Maxwell cards.


Here is an example I found on YT that shows the poor scaling (atleast at 4k) The video is pretty much in-line with my findings as well.

My suggestion would be to get the card to 1400-1450, or as high as you can on stock voltage and be done with it. There is no point outside of synthetic benchmarks to go past 1450 (tops) on a 980ti for 4k gaming. The results are different I presume at lower resolutions and may make a difference there, but I haven't tested anything but 4k yet.

So does anyone know if that modded BIOS in the OP will work for an MSI M7 motherboard and MSI 980TI?

Mobo has no relation to gpu bios. What MSI variant as theres plently in the MSI thread. I wouldn't condone throwing a EVGA bios on a MSI card.

Just wondering if my scores are where they should be, I'm coming from SLI 670s so it's been a while haha. BTW, my 3770k is OC'd to 4.5.


YES YOU ARE FINE !!!

Thanks I am totally new to modding a BIOS - I know nothing about it. I guess I will check the MSI thread then? And is it the GPU BIOS you mod or the Motherboard BIOS for power limit, voltage limit, etc?
