"Here is a list of bad card should be avoided if you Aim for manual OC ( voltage locked to 1.212v!)
For GTX 970/9801- Asus Strix or black edition
2-Evga 970 SC
3_ first Gen FTW 980
4-EVGA 980 classified"
Does this text mean there is no possibilty of voltage OC over 1.212v through software or does it mean it cannot be bios flashed over that value?

I'm sorry but your card is voltage locked at 1.212v no way to pass that from the bios
the best we can do is stable 1.212v (under load ) and higher TDP limit & boost off to avoid the throttle at 67c..
let me know if that okay for yo

I have a GTX 980 Ti Hybrid, and very good airflow on my case (16 fans).
This is my current OC:
My GPU-Z reading:
I don't know why the capture doesn't show it, but I get power and voltage Perf.Cap as soon as I boot any 3D application.
My stock BIOS:

My PSU is a Corsair AX860i. I have more than 400w to spare under load.
Let me know if you need more info.
My stock OC is quite good, i think, but I'd like to remove my voltage and power limit caps to get some extra juice. My card doesn't throttle with the above settings (no more than 30Mhz, anyway), but it hits the power and voltage limits rather quickly.
I'd like a BIOS that overclocks the GPU without requiring OC software, but I would also be happy with a simple increase to my power limit, and raising my voltage to the maximum recommended for my card. It's important to me that the card undervolts normally when idle. Is that possible?
Thanks in advance!
Here yo go

Core clock 1531mhz & 8000mhz memory & 1.255v & higher TDP limit & boost off..
we can push the voltage up to 1.28v but no need for that as your OC very good at low volt so 1.255v should be enough
btw no need to adjust the voltage/power limit anymore.. all effective from the bios

Your BIOS is so good, I got stability back AND an extra 25Mhz on the core. I've ran stable at 1475/4000 for over 3 weeks now.
Glad to hear that bro, enjoy it

that Evga 970 right ? its votlage locked card.. no way to pass that limit
