Nvidia GTX 900 cards custom bios (upon request ) - Page 601

post #6001 of 8708
Yohou guys!

Gonna start my post with some performance data about gtx 1070: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/8802396 <.-- here.

Sold my old gtx 970 and got myself Msi gtx 1070 Fe, i guess i was kinda lucky since they only had 8 pieces in whole finland tongue.gif After my testing i would hafto tell you some bad news, while this awesome card provides about 30 to 40% performance gap compared to 970 its still not enought to play newest games @60fps, 4k with full graphics even if you turn off anti aliasing.. It will run 30-45fps though.

Can't wait for the pascal bios tweaker to see what potential this card really holds maybe i will be able to hit min 50fps on games with full 4k graphics and just turn down my monitor to 50hz for smoothness. It would need 2 of these to run 4k @60 fps.

Also i have one concern about power input to this card, it only has 1x8pin connector and so does most ot the aftermarket versions too (msi twin frozer has 1x8pin 1x 6pin). Now the tdp is set to 150W and it seems to be number 1 concern limiting the cards performance. Would this 1 connector be enough to raise tdp for example 250w?

Also i ordered artic coolings liquiq closed loop solution, so temps won't be limiting the overclock.

What are your thoughts about gtx 1xxx series?

What are the key limiting factors for overclockin, for example is the hard mod for removing tdp necessary or should you be able to remove the limit from bios tweaker? Is the Fe edition voltage locked from vrm or are all the cards?

Hey Mr Dark,

Can you please increase the voltage on this custom bios you helped me with on my 980TI Strix? For some reason my machine has been locking up lately in the middle of gaming. Just complete hard lock with little yellow square boxes all over the screen. I thought it was my motherboard and or CPU at first so I built a whole different system, new everything include memory, cpu, mobo, and it has also locked up. The only thing they had in common was this Strix 980TI.

So I wonder if maybe increasing the voltage a bit would help this? You made me a 1506 core clock with 1268.8 mV where this 1443 one is 1243.8.

So I think if maybe we cranked up this 1443 voltage to be 1268.8 it would be more stable?

Please adjust this voltage up to 1268.8 when you get a moment:

Hrmm I've tried multiple systems with all different memory. Even this system with a new motherboard, I have three sets of DDR4 and all three do it, whether overclocked or not on memory.

I've pretty much narrowed it down to having to be something on the video card.

I'm flashing back to stock bios now and seeing if it still happens... I'm betting it won't though.

EDIT - Oh wait you said V RAM... so you think it's the memory on the card video card? I do have that clocked up too, maybe that is what it is? It has been fine for like a year or so though at this overclock, I thought maybe it just was needing more voltage.

I'll try the memory lower..
post #6005 of 8708
Lol yeah I've done the same thing. But boxes are almost always memory in my experience. You might lower the memory to stock or at least lower than your current oc and you may find you can get higher core

Glad to hear that, but yo can Contact Evga and they will replace one of them for yo at no additional cost as that Evga problem wink.gif

Evga is the Best when it come to RMA and fixing problem's thumb.gif

Can you help me with removing restrictions from my BIOS? I have MSI GTX 980Ti Gaming 6G Golden Edition. Below I attached my BIOS and screenshot from GPU-Z.

GM200.zip 146k .zip file



+1- Disable the boost (to avoid throttle at 67c)
+2- Increase the TDP limit
+3- Increase the voltage
+4- OC the memory
+5- Custom fan curve
+6- Highest OC without any OC software!
+7- Unlock the hidden voltage slider for Titan-X + 980 Ti Cards!

Thank you in advance! smile.gif

Hello bro

here yo go

GM200---MSI-------Dark.zip 146k .zip file
Dark.zip (146k. zip file)

Core clock 1506mhz & 3.7ghz memory & 1.255v & higher TDP limit & boost off & a little aggressive fan curve..

It is throttling with "Perfcap Reason: Pwr" in GPU-Z... must not have enough voltage because it is certainly rated for enough power now. Are you aware of any way to bypass the hardware limitation of 1.212v

I think there is Misunderstanding here..

drop the stock bios here again so i can check the voltage limit ?

Thanks

the oc is crashing on the 3dmark stress test so i am trying to revert back for the time being

i am getting this error


Identifying EEPROM...

Hello

For sure yo can flash the stock bios anytime.. to fix the problem use this Nvflash

Hello

your psu at the limit... the FX 8 core use to much power.. anew psu is good idea so yo can push as yo like.. 850W Gold one or 1k is good idea thumb.gif

I have a (Gigabyte) 980 Ti Reference card w/ the EVGA Hybrid AIO. GPU Core stays <50C during 3DMark, Furmark, and GTA5 bench at 4k, so core temp isn't an issue. I've left the reference fan at 50% speed to help cool the VRMs (enough?)

I'd like to keep using MSI Afterburner for all of my OC stuff, so I don't want to change clocks or fan curves in BIOS.

What I'd like to do is raise the TDP to 300w. (PCI-e Lane plus 1x6-pin and 1x8-pin should total 300w power, with the stock TDP of 250+10% that sets the card at 275w max. Is there any reason I shouldn't bump that up to 300w? My PSU can absolutely handle it.)

I'd also like to raise the maximum voltage by a little bit. Right now, with +87mV in MSI Afterburner, the card caps out at 1.23v. I'm thinking 1.25v might be a good balance of allowing a bit more OC, yet still staying on the safe side. (Thoughts?)

I'm open to any other thoughts/suggestions here.

Last 3dMark: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12519618 (20,459 Graphics Score. Mem Clock: 7660MHz / Core Clock: 1440MHz, voltage limited.)

Many thanks! smile.gif


Attached untouched reference vBIOS:

Gigabyte-ref-GM200-original.zip 152k .zip file

Hello there

300W TDP is big limit for 980 Ti.. we set 420W at 100% slider so no need to tweak at all and yo can push as yo like.. for the voltage to push that over 1.24v we need to Disable the boost and set the clock to specific point..

for the blower fan, yes 50% is fine... we can do 1405mhz core clock / 7660mhz memory / 1.250v / 420W TDP limit / Boost off.. what yo think ?

let me know so i can help yo smile.gif

Hello

Nice graphic score.. almost like 980 Ti @1450mhz.. and for sure not enough for 4K games.. rolleyes.gif

when it come to push the power limit, we can push the 8 Pin to 225W (if the psu good ) and the PCI-E can push 75W so the total 300W... that's around 200% over the stock thumb.gif

the big problem with Pascal is the voltage scale.. as yo know the stock voltage is 1.075v.. while push +50mv improve the OC ability by 20 to 40mhz.. so its worse that MAxwell on the voltage scale rolleyes.gif

Oh wow thank you so much good sir! So you do think it may help to have some extra voltage even if it is the VRAM causing the issue? I wonder if just to be safe I should ask for a bios with the memory turned down from the 4000 to like 3800, what do you think good sir? I will try it now with the higher voltage but the square box lockups are random. Sometimes 10 minutes in, sometimes 2 hours.

Thanks for everything!

If you disable Boost, do I have to specify clock in vBIOS or can I still have it at stock (1000) and then just up to to what I want (1400-1500 somewhere) in MSI Afterburner? Can you just raise the maximum vcore voltage allowed (again, so I can adjust in AB), or do you have to set it at a specific voltage?

Also, will the card still downclock/downvolt during idle w/ your modified vBIOS?


Your help & effort is much appreciated! smile.gif

Oh, its voltage locked at 1.212v mad.gif

Evga lock the voltage on that model as they think its basic version for the 970... rolleyes.gif

Hello

If the Vram Oc the problem, it will not hardlock or crash on yo.. the Vram Artifact or give yo one color when Unstable.. the core is the reason for the crash after 1h or 2h as yo say..

how your temp ? as i know the Strix cooler is garbage smile.gif

Hello

Yes, the lowest clock we can use from the bios is 1280mhz... and we can use 1.250v with that so yo can push as yo want..

and yes the card still down the clock/volt in IDLE just fine.. smile.gif
