yes i reported to ZOTAC it's buggy i'm using MSI Aft. Thanks !

Hi all, I made a post on "GTX 1070/1080/TITAN X(2ND GEN) BIOS - Who has it?" about my results with the new XOC bios. I will share it here too since I found the bios interesting.


For me, the new XOC bios t4 helps my card out. I have a 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming.

Pros:
I get 200+ more points with the xoc bios with same clocks in timespy. Fire Strike Compare

No more throttling - In multiple games, I would get major power throttle and the card would lower its clocks significantly (which would show up as a frame drop). More stable frames with bios.

Stable voltage at 1.093V (no fluctuations). Note: to limit the voltage I put the Core Voltage slider at 0% and using the voltage curve I set 1.093 as the highest overclock and then for any above points/voltage I set the same clock as as the 1.093V, it should look like this. I have not thoroughly tested with higher voltages, but using this method does allow me to set the max attainable voltage using the curve (though you may need to fiddle with the voltage slider) to attain higher overclocks. thumb.gif


Cons:
You guessed it - more heat!

Since the card does not throttle anymore, and stays at a stable 1.093V, my cards heats up a bit more. With default "auto" fan profile (and about 24C-26C ambient) with the original bios I get temps from the range of 70-74C max when gaming. On the xoc bios the range is more like 78-82C max with the "auto" fan profile. Note: I did start to get artifacts/crashes sometimes when the card got into the 80's range, so I just made a custom fan profile to bump up the fan speed a little bit to keep it <80C (which keeps it stable and quiet for me).

Though I am able to set voltages above 1.093V and get better overclocks, the card started heating up more and more to the point where I had to set the fan to 100% and it was still a bit too warm.

I do plan on eventually installing or modding the card with a hybrid water cooling AIO. I know EVGA sells this one, but I am not sure I can mod that one since I have a different PCB. Anyone have a source or know someone that has modded their gigabyte g1 gaming with a AIO water cooler? I know some people have slapped the AIO 980 TI on their 1080 FE, but this would a bit different as I would have to cool the rest of the card with fans (VRM, etc). I am sure I could get better overclocks with better temperatures; or at the very least cooler/quieter.

+Rep!

Will install it when I'm finished playing R6S.

You got the flash tool download for me?

Sure. Attached is the NVFLASH. nvflash5.292.zip 927k .zip file

Use commands:
nvflash -i0 --protectoff
nvflash -i0 -6 x.rom

where x.bios where x is the name of the bios.

Also, please save a backup of your bios using GPU-Z first.

Be warned the strix has 2 HDMI slots and 2 DP, whereas many of other cards have 3 DP and 1 HDMI. So when flashing this do not use the DP next to the hdmi port as it will cause issues/not work.

Thanks! I already have my or.g bios backed up to my email, and I have switched the DP cable. I'm using the port that is right below my DVI.

Rep!

Thanks!

Someone tested this BIOS XOC bios t4 with the 1080 ZOTAC FE ?

Thanks


Thanks

You sure? I just downloaded it. It is a zip that contains nvflash.exe and nvflsh64.sys. You have to open command prompt (as administrator) and go to the nvflash folder (with the two files, and the bioses) and use the commands I listed.

NVM! I managed to get it working with winrar. Duh. Thanks again! smile.gif

Sorry for bothering again, but I can't get it to work properly.. If i press a button it will go one menu down, after 6-8 presses it will exit. I have flashed several times before, but I forget how to every time. Hehe.

At least this time people are seeing tangible results. Plus we get extra entertainment each time gangsta bricks his card.
