Okay! smile.gif
Good to know that.

Thing is, any average user would come to the conclusion that getting a 2nd GPU would be more sense than doing Ln2.

One thing I did see on these forums that I thought was absolutely amazing was, putting the GPU on liquid, then putting the radiator into a bucket of ice water. LOL

Yes, that would make more sense to a gamer / enthuists... Ln2 benchmarking is a hobby on its own (as well as of corse the pros) which requires its own skill set, comittment to push your hardware to its limits..

And yes putting a radiator in a bucket of ice-water is pretty common biggrin.gif bongs as well (not what your thinking lol)....

Look into this method for more voltage options guys wink.gif

Way too much weight is being put on the ASIC score of cards and I blame the internet for that. Unless you are a pro overclocker with the knowledge and LN2 to use, it isn't going to make a huge difference on these cards.

EDIT: wording
If it crashes it is because the overclock is unstable poke.gif

Perhaps it would help you if you read a few basic overclocking guides before you start throwing sliders around thumb.gif
The only Lightning cards I have owned that stopped fans were the 290x Lightnings. I believe that has more to do with AMD power saving features though, which makes the card "sleep" when not in use, not MSi's.
Btw does msi Lightning 980ti ,does the fan only moves after a certain temp ? like 60C ?
like the asus strix 780, where the fans off but once it hits a certain temp it starts moving ? or does it permanently spin even at low temp
Thanks i didnt expect Msi lightning 980ti fans didnt have that feature for that price. having the fans not on until a certain temp isnt it better. helps the longetivity of the fans. and noise reduction dBA when idle or below 60C . isnt it a great feature to have at least on the high end cards ?

MSI Afterburner lets you create a fan curve. This does let you set 0 as your desired fan speed. You can also setup a fan profile in the bios as well, but get ready to nvflash your card if you choose to do so.

oh okay thanks , but by default the fan is not 0 at idle or low usage ?

I found in the bios, it was setup by default to 0 rpm the fans at the desired factory set temperature.

Fan Control (Experimental) ??? what the MSI?
RPM11: 0
TMP11: 59.00
PER11: 0

RPM12: 850
TMP12: 60.00
PER12: 15

RPM13: 2500 (This here is the max speed)
TMP13: 90.00
PER13: 100

PER01: 0
PER02: 100

RPM01: 0
RPM02: 2500


From personal experience with overclocking this card, you wanna keep the temperatures down when you need it (makes voltages more stable), and then when not in use, turn the fans off. But since we live in different places in the world, I can't decide for you what is the ideal, and neither should the manufacturer, so I suggest making a fan curve in MSI Afterburner 4.2.0 Beta 2, or something better when it comes out and supports full functionality of this card. It must support Triple Overvoltage to be a supported MSI Afterburner.

Random question, and I figure here is the appropriate space to ask:

I have managed a stable OC of 1455Mhz core clock and 2002 mem clock on air, with a decent - but not earth-shattering - Heavenmark score of 2546. (1080p, ultra, extreme tesselation, 8x AA.)

Here's the catch: I am only able to do so in the LN2 BiOS, using EVGA Precision X 16, with their K-Boost function turned on. (K-Boost runs the card at max clock for core and memory and max voltage.) If I attempt to use Afterburner, I am unable to achieve any overclock, as the voltage will not increase past 1.07 under any condition.

I have tried to force constant voltage in AB, change the power settings to prefer maximum performance under NVIDIA Control Panel, increase the core voltage in AB, and my max voltage is still 1.07.

While using Precision 16 isn't a massive inconvenience, I'd obviously prefer not to roll around with a max'd OC 24/7 on a daily driver.

So two questions, then:

1) Based on what I've said, does a simple solution seem obvious to anyone?
2) If not, is my only option downloading Rbby as Gunslinger suggested above and changing the addresses for AB 4.1.1? Will that then force constant voltage - though obviously not force max clock?

Also, as there were a few comments about EK water blocks earlier in the thread: I was speaking to their customer service reps yesterday, who claim that pre-filled EKWBs will be released with QDCs to create quick and easy loops with their new Predator 360 AIOs.

With both AB 4.2.0 and EKWBs on the imminent horizon, some nice water-cooled OCs are in my future. biggrin.gif I'm thinking a Predator 360 for the CPU and Predator 240 for the GPU!
