Power Connectors 6-pin x 1, 8-pin x 2 for msi lightning 980ti,
which is the best most optimum connection should i use ? all 6 x1 8 x2 pins ? can anyone tell me whats the best connection to get ? im building my own pc for the first time smile.gif

You have to use all power connectors 6x1 and 2x8 pins!

Thanks for your post.
Every input vcore GPU over 1.206 v is also unstable with my card (maybe it depends on my 79 Asic GPU), but lowering AUX Voltage -100mv gives me also more stability on GPU and RAM and more clocks with Stockvoltage on GPU and RAM.

First test with AUX -100 I get without problems 1.570/4.104 running FSX (GPU and RAM Voltage@Stock)
With Stock AUX I cant get more than 1.550/4.001 FSX,

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?

With AB 4.2.0 beta 2 you are able to set up to 1.294v (real 1.263v - tested with multimeter) - but everything over 1.206v is unstable (with my card)

Well done, keep trying to get first place in FSU smile.gif

Use Liquid Helium smile.gif

Even in the 4.2 Beta, my voltage will not increase above 1.18 under any circumstances. As you can see, I have power limit and voltage increased, and still my voltage will not budge.

Does this make sense to anyone? Is this just a card issue that I'll need an RMA for?

EDIT: Oddly enough, I can't even see my voltage in AB - and that's with voltage control and monitoring enabled in settings.

Could someone run the GTX 980ti Lightning fans at 80 percent and tell me what temperatures you get after playing a game for 1 hour smile.gif

wow, didnt expect a graphic card requires 3 pcie wires from power supplu.
usually just 2 xD
but thanks smile.gif

70C was highest temp.
