What is the Right Way to Overclock my 980Ti

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hey guys im new to all this pc overclocking madness ive finally gone and done my CPU but i want to clock my card while its on air atm and watercooling is coming in the future (funds needed) and im wondering what is the best and easiest way to go about doing this for a new person

BTW the card i have is the EVGA Nvidia GTX 980Ti Superclocked+ Acx 2.0+

i dont want to go mad on the overclock but since im still on stock i would like to dip my toe's into the pond and give it a go pref with no bios flashing (if my card can be flashed) as i dont trust my self and dont want to ruin my card

The right way is with a flashed BIOS (IMO)

The simple way is this:

Go to utube and search for MSI afterburner and/or EVGA Precision X. Both of these are free. It's very simple to OC a video card. There are some good examples on utube.

My card has a dual bios? Can you explain this to me ? That's the first I've heard of it.

Look at the back of your card.
See how some ports are on one side and some are on the other...probably with a line between them?
Using the ports on the left side will boot a different bios on post than the right side.

If you manage to brick one side you can still boot into the other side, disable the display driver, boot back into the other side and try it again.
