nVidia GTX 965M overclock - Page 3

post #21 of 68
ive tried a few of Mr. Dark's bios's and it always downclocks to below the stock +135 overclock (which stays at 1173mhz) on my 970m. When i try my own modded bios, the same thing happens. i can do a tad above 1173 (say 1200) and it always goes to like 1163 or even lower even though temps are in check. i know the 970m has tons of power, but i just cant seem to get it to stop downclocking. any suggestions?

Can you give me your laptop model and your modded BIOS for give you my opinion?
Btw the throttling can to be related at temperatures but also at power limits like you said...

I am hitting the power limit, that's confirmed for sure . but here is my unmodded bios anyways (don't have the modded one available at this time)

GM204.zip 66k .zip file

I tried to mod your BIOS and it's uploaded here:

I still haven't been able to flash the vbios so I tried to overclock with Nvidia Inspector and pc crashes at 300mhz....

Posted in Mr. Dark's thread as well, but I flashed it and all I gotta say is bye bye power limit lol. Saw what you rose in MBT. Question is, is it pretty safe, as long as you don't overvolt to much and keep temps in check????

Strange that you can not flash your bios... by the way try your overlock by software, 300MHz looks a lot without a mod, try to increase just 50MHz, step by step, monitoring temperature, voltages and power limits with GPUZ

well, is a laptop, so if you need a decent battery life, restore the minimum power limits, like previously... but if you use it more attached at the power line, with these values you can have more stability in your overclock.

Keep always monitored the temperatures with GPUz at a maximum value between 85 ~ 95 celsius, then add step by step, voltage and power...

I'm using Furmark after every modification, whatever stress a lot my GPU, but by this way you can to be sure about the stability of your overclock.
Unigine Valley, Heaven and Firestrike are commonly used.

If you want, run Furmark with a Preset at 1080 (there is a button in the main page) keeping GPUz open and share here your results. We will give you a better advice!

Thanks for everything! I really want to push it farther, but I'm pretty happy with it now. I get a Heaven score of 1054 (1080p all settings maxed) and temps don't exceed 72C. That is with stock voltage. If I bump up the voltage to 1.050, I can get a higher clock, but the temps get to 77C and my CPU temp also raises. Still, not bad at all for a "budget" laptop
