Got the 970 FTW + back up to 1519/8018 1.281v 286-357w@ 125%. I don't know how to make those settings work with the MSI card though. Hope that helps.
Thanks Mr-Dark for the advice about power table+core unparking+pagefile, LMAO!
good to know that. you're most welcome
Yeah nothing on AB, monitoring shows core clock at 1468, temps go to about 70 but can't keep them much lower at that voltage.
With stock bios getting +195/+500 (about 1435/8000) and that's with voltage at about +55mV
Refuse to believe my card can only max at 1435!
Sound like chip limit for me. once you hit that wall nothing will help to push more..
Your card isn't locked as you think who tell you that ? and yes you will see a benefit from a custom bios with higher voltage and boost off "
Hi Mr-Dark, when you remove the boost, will the card ever throttle speed and voltage down when not being used or sitting idle in Windows? Ive added a zip file here with the BIOS from both the cards and named them accordingly. Can you please hook me up?A boost would be really nice! Thank you so much Mr-Dark! GM204.zip 274k .zip file
The card still idle at low clock/voltage.. the boost control the clock under load depend on the temp/ASIC/Voltage..
Give this a try
EVGA980---Dark.zip 274k .zip file
Core clock 1506mhz & 3.7ghz memory & 1.250v & higher TDP limit & boost off
both bios has same setting above. also i recommended the Hybrid card in 1St slot to avoid any overheat
Now is it better then before?
Yes. beast score honestly!
@Mr-Dark, what version of windows 10 do you recommend for gaming stability? I have 10240 RTM, 10586 TH2 , 11099 and 14251. Please advise breaker, breaker. lol.
I have no idea about the build number as my Pc down now. but i'm using the latest one for sure.. Up to date 24/7
