Mine says MSI GTX980ti Lightning, here. The AB version number states 4.2.0 right there on the left of that GTX980ti part a little right?

If so, I think you need to use Display Driver Uninstaller and download the latest drivers which they just released new ones again. Then do a full uninstall of your current display drivers with DDU and a fresh install through the new driver install package that you downloaded once you're done doing the DDU part in safe mode.

Some drivers back now there were uninstall issues and it sounds like you might be stuck on a driver somehow.

Good catch Nico. I gave you rep.

Its not recognising the card as a lightning, so I think you may have the first version of 4.2.0. Try downloading AB again and installing it, failing that, setting MSI extended should recognise it too, but I think the trying a new download of AB should be your first shot.

Just saw this, but I have already tried adjusting auxiliary voltage down 40 mV and up as well as like 20 up and 20 down. What could I try next? Lower auxiliary -50, 60, raise core to 1215, 1230, 1245?

It shouldn't be tied to wattage, I have 1300 watt gold PSU and it's the only GPU in my system. Power usage will rarely go above 90% even though usage is at 100%.

I meant that there seems to be a chip on the GPU that I believe gunslinger alluded to, to stop you from going so far as well that you have to by pass with a hard mod at some point depending on your cards behavior which comes down to component quality and variances etc...

You're going to have to feel your card out as far as settings go. It took me awhile but when I want to now I can push my card to 1620 and higher which took me like 10 hours of testing on a very cold night and a lot of coffee to finally be able to do.

There are no magic starting point settings. Your card will be different then everyone's.

Is this card not available anymore?

Had a few good gaming sessions while trying the Beta for "The Division", best I managed was

1575 GPU
4001 Mem

1269 vcore
0 mem
-125 aux

@truehigheroller1's unlocked bios

that ran crash free for the last session I just did which was for around 3hrs

throughout the 20odd hrs over a few days, I never had any artifacts, although the game would "unexpectedly closed" on me when it wasn't happy. It crashed out like that at 1575@1244 vcore after around 30-40mins, but I accidentally set it to 1592@1244 vcore and it actually ran that for 15mins roughly before crashing smile.gif

games do vary I guess, but this was running Ultra default settings at 3440x1440 Gysnc and max mem was 5201.

I am going to buy the waterblock, and then I need to figure out how to actually do the rest of it. Hmm. I could do with some advice. I should post pictures of my case and could do with suggestions on possible ways to mount a radiator and reservoir inside, and which sized radiator would be appropriate. I can put a measuring tape along side the case so you get an idea of the working space.

What was my reasons for finally wanting to do this?
Running out of time to decide, so pressure. They won't make them forever.
Hot summer day today convinced me my machine needs something better to satisfy my overclocking desires.
I don't plan to change out my video card for a long time, so getting a bit more performance would be nice.

Memory will do that behavior. Probably needs to be at around 3900. As you go up with the core speed you can, get faster memory speeds as well I noticed but it might not be stable though 100%. 3900 = 100% stable in my case.

Yeah I had some " guy on here " tell me the BIOS was a foolish yayadablahblah, some troll basically. I love how people come on this forum and bash on people when they have no clue what the hek, they're going on about. Best forum ever!

That BIOS is perfection for me, if you find your cards sweet spots you can tweak it a little voltage table wise and it will run perfect on yours as well. It took a lot of tweaking and figuring out what does what to get that thing perfect like it is. Some people don't even have the BIOS setup correctly at all when it comes down to it but I won't point out the obvious. I will run this perfect BIOS and let them all think they're godly. and superb.

Glad I could help some people. thumb.gif

Waterblock is a great idea. Get a full cover block that cools everything. The memory will clock higher with a waterblock which is why I will eventually get one myself. Our money's coming our way any day now and I'll be getting a solid x99 MB and a 5930k and some ddr4 3200 4 x 4GB and a m.2 drive or two. I can not wait.

This is the waterblock I am going for. Need suggestions for other parts.
Also from looking at the case, it seems I may be able to mount the radiator up the very top of the case. Not sure where the reservoir goes.
The radiator looks like it can be the length of 2 of those 120 mm fans, but only the width of 1. Will that be enough? Or should I consider taking the radiator out of the case entirely and going for superman size? XD

Thinking of using this as my radiator:
https://www.pccasegear.com/products/23458/alphacool-nexxxos-monsta-240mm

If I do, I will have to change the orientation of my CPU heatsink. However considering that the space will be really bad, maybe I should consider dumping the CPU heatsink and use a water cooler for that as well. As long as my Intel core i7 4790K can do 4.5 GHz, then I'm okay with that.
