Precision X "Overboost"?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have two 980 Ti Classified's that I'm currently overclocking with MSI Afterburner. I tried switching over to Precision X as I heard about the "overboost" feature made available to Classified and Kingpin Edition cards. What I'm confused about is what exactly that feature does. It seems that you can have both overvolting and "overboost" enabled at the same time, but am I incorrect in saying that they achieve the exact same thing with overboost simply having a larger range of voltages?

Does overboost just supercede the overvolting settings on Classified and KPE cards? The interface makes it insanely confusing. If there's someone out there who can confirm or deny my suspicions, it would be highly appreciated. I would just check my voltages in GPU-Z, but for some reason they seem to be bugged and completely inaccurate right now.

Someone over on EVGA forums told me that it's simply a larger range of voltages available on Classified and KPE cards. The weird and confusing thing is, overvolting needs to be enabled in order to get access to it. It's just a confusing interface and terminology for a pretty simple feature. Oh Precision X...rolleyes.gif. You try so hard yet you're never as functional or well-designed as Afterburner.
