Anyway I thought graphic card gone as well but when I bought new motherboard and power supply graphic card started normally. But after few minutes driver started restarting only in idle. I was hoping this is only a software problem not hardware, now I think is a bit of both. Anyway I just flashed your bios no restart yet but I will need to test for a bit longer. Will let you know the results.
Thanks, really appreciate your help.
I hope that fix your problem..

My card ASIC quality is 59.9% and i wanted a stable core clock at 1460-1470mhz and memory at 1900mhz.
Is here any hope that my current card can handle it ? Can its voltage be unlocked? Its currently locked at 1.212 (As per my knowledge by zotac)
Any help is welcome
i've attached my current bios (it has it power limit upped from 106 to 130)

I'm sorry to tell yo that your card is voltage locked at 1.212v
No way to pass that from the bios..
but in general custom bios with 1450mhz @1.212v and boost off should improve your OC ability.. maybe yo can push a little more
let me know if yo want to try that one

Yes, 1.212v is the Max for that card..

One more thing when this crash happens Afterburner records some ridiculously number in the power table, it shows at least 8 digits number like - 33779480% for example.
Hmmm, that strange but okay..
give this a try

Number 5 from the Top is the 8 pin cable...

Thank you for answering my question prior!
Would you be able to do a nice stable OC on my GPU for me? I've heard good things about this card and hear it's quite a good overclocker. I'd like it to be a beast
Could you possibly turn boost off and make it run at max all the time?
It scores an ASIC Quality 75.5%
Thanks a heap!!

Core clock 1506mhz & 3.8ghz memory & 1.255v & higher TDP limit & boost off..
If yo like to keep the card at Max clock all time just switch the power plan from Adaptive to Max Performance from Nvdia driver.. but no need for that

From core I have 1473 mhz (but from heaven benchmark I read 1635 O_o). Is it possible get 1500 mhz without over voltage? I tried core +180 but driver crash when I play at Crysis for example...This is my bios: http://www118.zippyshare.com/v/R9tuEcdP/file.html
Do you think is it possible optimize OC with default voltage? Is it normal that my TDP % is 94,5%?
to push the clock farther we should increase the voltage.. as yo say the card crash at higher clock and same volt..
Btw why no overvolt ? 1.200v still very low on Maxwell card..

As i seen your card last night.. I think something physically damaged on that card...

bios.zip 137k .zip file
yo didn't got it right.. the power usage under load shouldn't hit 100% at all.. if that happen the core will throttle... So we increase the power limit to keep the power usage under 90% to avoid any throttle...
custom bios with higher voltage & boost off & higher power limit should improve your OC ability..
if yo like to try that let me know

Nvidia logic i think
Imagine the 1080 @150% power limit and 1.20v under the water.. lol

The best stable configuration ended up being:
Core = 1561 MHz
Memory = 8178 MHz
I'm not sure the 1.2831V is necessary, so it may be reduced to 1.275V.
Not bad for a free 40% core overclock and 17% memory overclock over the stock base values.
That very good OC.. Enjoy it

With stock bios set to max 110% power limit I can achieve 1460mhz on the core, max volts are 1.225v.
I have had my bios modified with the TDP limit removed and volts locked at 1.250v, and can achieve 1501mhz and still remain stable (1 hr of gaming on The Division). Still no (stable) overclock on the memory.
Is this average? I believe 1501mhz core / 7600mhz mem is unstable, but 1501 mhz core / 3500mhz mem is stable. Am I wrong to think memory should overclcok higher?
Anyway, just looking for some feed back, I could just have bad silicon.@Mr-Dark
This is a copy and paste from the Official 970 forum, maybe you have some more insight. I can play for at least an hour with 1500 on the core, but even +300 on the memory seems to make gaming crash (only tried the division so far). Am I expecting too much on the mem? Or do I just have bad silicon causing low core and mem clock altogether?
-Thanks for the help/advice
If your memory chip's from Hynix then its fine.. Hynix the worst OC ability at all..
Btw yo can stabilize the 1500/7600 by increasing the voltage from 1.250v to 1.260v or 1.270v... higher memory OC = more stress on the core...
So if your OC without memory OC barely stable, once yo push the memory yo will crash... Try 1480/7600 ?

Hello Mr Dark,
Here's my BIOS finally. This is a Gigabyte G1 GTX970, 1x8pin and 1x6pin.
Max I can get via Afterburner is +100 on the boost clock so it makes the clock 1429MHz. After that I get artifacts in Heaven benchmark. Can you reccomend me another software for checking out the artifacts?
I was monitoring my power draw etc while using Heaven, and it gets up to 70%. But my voltage won't go up more than 1.250V. Even if I pull the slider +80 it just stays at 1.25V. You probably know what the issue is
Anyway, my ASIC is 70.2%. What I'd like to get is 1500MHz stable clock.
It would be best if we can start just by unlocking the TDP limit if necessary, also disabling boost since I can keep it around 65c, and unlock that voltage that I can't pump. Do you think it's a good idea for a start, and if that should make me able to achieve more than 1450MHz?
Thanks a bunch!
Sound like your card need more volt for higher OC.. yo loss the silicon this time
give this a try

Dark.zip (136k. zip file)
Core clock 1455mhz & 3.7ghz memory & 1.275v & higher TDP limit & boost off..
Use any OC software to push the clock farther.. No need to keep it under 65c... keep it under 80c
for the stability test use Heaven and Valley as first test.. if pass try Firestrike then some games
