MSI 980 Ti Gaming 6G Card overclocks and pictures - Page 274

post #2731 of 3326
Did some more testing today. i tryed Far cry 4 in 4K with max settings temps never go over 70.c with 1420.mhz gpu and 8000.mem 1.187V . Previus card did 79.C . I think the cobber is strong at higer temps.

i can run the mem at 8000.mhz previus card did 7400.mhz max



Now i need a custom bios for this card so i can test overclocking!

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?

From my understanding most PSU are single rail and having more or less cables connected for PCI-E shouldn't matter. However, if the cable itself isn't large enough gauge it could be an issue.

I don't picture most reputable PSU manufacturers including PCI-E cables that can't handle the fittings they have. For instance if they come with cables that can do 2x8 then the cable itself should be up for the task.

However, I don't see how it could be harmful to use two different PCI-E cables. Other then adding clutter.

What PSU did this happen with?

*Watch out for extensions, or after market cabling.

My sig PSU - Seasonic X850 Gold, and using the CG04 PCI-e connector. I have not ungplugged the modular base for over a year, so it can't be external stuff getting into the socket.

Yea, that's crazy. I'm not PSU expert but I know the X-850's are supposed to be pretty good PSU's. Hell, I have one myself. Must of just pushed its limits.

Should take a picture of it and send it in to SeaSonic and see what they say. Maybe it was just defective.

Not that I disagree, but doesn't the Zotac AMP also have a 2.5 slot cooler with 3 fans? Does no better than either the G1 or the Palit and louder than both to boot.

Also the particular reason I like G1's cooler, is because it's the only cooler (that I know of anyway) to provide active cooling for both the memory chips and the VRMs. Active cooling as in the components actually make contact with a coldplate that's connected to the heatpipes.

Try to find something that uses more VRAM, I run the same clocks on my MSI GTX980 Gamming 4G, I just run out of VRAM playing 1440p on ARK.

so in previous page you say there is no difference but now you say it's almost 10C difference at load. that's a massive difference.

Yeah, I'm skeptical about those improvements. The MSI Gaming cooler (non-gold) is nickel-plated copper which has almost identical thermal properties. AFAIK the heatsink is the same size and shape too.
