MSI 980 Ti Gaming 6G Card overclocks and pictures - Page 273

post #2721 of 3326
Idle and load temps please. Asic wouldn't hurt either though it doesn't mean much imo. Curious how well it cools for only $30 more with that $20 mir.

There is a reason why there is not a sinlge youtube or any other review. don't even bother!

Figures. The heatsink is too small no matter what material they use.

They really should've went with a tri-fan HSF like Gigabyte and Asus and even their own Lightning card. Seriously the only other AIB to use dual fans is EVGA and they aren't exactly known for making great air coolers.

Or maybe this is MSI's ploy to get more people to "upgrade" to the Lightning. tongue.gif

Not defending MSI, but trying to understand the logic in your reasoning. The size of both gigabyte and msi cover nearly the same surface area, 58 in^2.

Whats the difference in cfm between 3 fans vs the 2 bigger ones?

The reason I bring this up is because I hear mixed results across the board between all vendors.

I honestly wouldn't know, as it would depend on the fan's maximum RPM for one. The other thing about the G1 is that the heatpipes are more or less straight, whereas both Asus and MSI use U-shaped heatpipes (but in Asus' case 3 of 5 heatpipes make direct contact with the GPU). (although to be fair Asus designed their tri-fan cooler to fit both the AMD Fury and 980 Ti Strix, so it's not exactly a shining example of heatsink engineering)

Also I can say that the 980 Ti Classified I had for a bit moved a lot more air compared to the MSI when both set to 100% fan speed. Of course the Classified also sounded like a jet taking off, whereas the MSI was actually somewhat bearable. So I suspect the other AIBs have a more aggressive default fan curve as well.

I thought the TFV heatsink was pretty effective for the GM200 monster. I had fans at 75% when I could start hearing them through my case and it kept Witcher 3 at 72c. Keep in mind that reference easily reaches 85c+.

I had a scary experience oc'ing my card -- the single rail that fed 390w+ to my GPU melted and caused any full GPU load afterward to freeze GPU, but light loads worked just fine. Thought for sure my GPU was toast, because I had lost a GTX 570 from VRM's blowing before and the GPU behaved this way, until it stopped booting completely at one point. Praying that my card was fine, because it is under WC and that it had to be the PSU, I tried pulling out the PCI-e connector from the PSU (modular) and found that it was glued stuck from the melting. After trying a spare PSU, full GPU load worked fine, so then I just plugged in a different PCI-e connector to a different modular port and everything's back to normal.

What do you guys think of running 2x8 pin's off of one PSU rail? Am I putting too much stress on just one cable?
post #2730 of 3326
Woah did you have a really old modular PSU with multiple rails? Modern PSUs should have OCP and if one particular rail is being overloaded it should cut power right away. Anyway sorry that happened and glad your card is ok.

I think as long as you use a quality PSU with enough wattage and don't overload the +12V rail you should be fine. Just make sure you read the rail config on the PSU to see if it has single or multiple +12V rails, and whether it can handle your current draw (33A for 390W @ 12V). Worst case you put one 8 pin on each +12V rail in the PSU (so ~16A for each rail).
