Overclocking QUAD 980 GTXs with this guide

post #1 of 9

Guide

Has anyone tried, and does it work?

Is it safe, I mean it won't brick the cards once done.

Are you trying to fold on them after OCing them? If not I will move this to the proper section.

Hi,

Sorry, I'm confused.

I'm just trying to overclock them more, but I can't because of this power-strang hold.

This isn't the proper section. @dman811 @hertz9753 can move it for you. Probably to volt mod sub forum, or nvidia maybe.

Anyways, have you tried a modded bios with increased power target? I would try that first before "hard modding"

Please move it to the right direction.

I've read a flash will not work. If I'm wrong, I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Alright, I'll move it to NVIDIA. If it isn't suited for that section, someone else will have to move it again.

 

EDIT: Wait... appears someone already did it for me.
