GTX 1070/1080/TITAN X(2ND GEN) BIOS - Who has it? - Page 55

I was having difficulty searching for these bios. Again, attached are GTX 1070 Asus Strix OC and Non-OC bios.

Asus_1070_Strix_Non-OC_86.04.26.00.61.zip 151k .zip file

Asus_1070_Strix_OC_GP104_86.04.1E.00.21.zip 149k .zip file

cross posting but i wanted it on this thread

I bought the evga 1070sc and have managed an ok overclock, +120 for and +525 memory very stable, temps around 62-65c and 2114mhz peak and usually dropping to 2088. Went ahead and tried the Asus strix bios and could only gain like 10 more MHz stable but had to sacrifice memory, for a grand score of 3982 on valley. The exact same as my stock bios lol. Just want to see what else is out there or if my chip is just tapped out

I thought I'd already answered your question here?

Testing is going to vary from one board to another. A lemon isn't going to do squat with 1.2V while a well cooled high bin GPU might do great things if able to handle the added power consumption.

See they increased the video clock per gpu clock in the t4 BIOS, nice. Better FS score than xoc, less top voltage for me ~1.125V on t4, same power and temp as strix xoc from earlier it seems.

It was the F8 strix1080xoc.rom from this thread

Sorry to burst your bubble but that was just posted to verify 1.2V. The 2.3GHz was in no way stable on load. My bad, I should have mentioned that same as last time, edited now.

Exactly this. smile.gif

Not much detail but looks like your running legacy option ROM. If you can, try UEFI otherwise if you must use legacy there should be an OROM option in the BIOS setup for something like "keep current / force BIOS". Try toggling that.

ahhh sorry bro. I forgot about that post. To answer your question

What Video clock do you get with 2200MHz clock?
What video clock do you mean ? smile.gif

Do you recommend using this T4 bios on FE card ?
post #545 of 600
I generally don't recommend anything, just report what I find and leave it up to whoever to decide what they want to do. One man's meat is another man's poison wink.gif

Fan is still 3600 max on t4 vs 4000 on FE. Is the FE regulation up to it? idk. If we were missing out on 20% or more performance gain I might be a little more concerned but the difference isn't that great IMO.

Monitoring strix t4 FS run of just over 25k graphics score with HWiNFO. I cannot do 25k with stock FE VBIOS. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

You can see the video clock listed. This would run at ~1700MHz with xoc at 2000+ gpu clock. The video clock is something I've wanted to mess with since early June but appears locked for OC'ing. Seems to be shrouded in mystery as well. frown.gif

Anyway got this reminder that I'm spending too much time on this. biggrin.gif

As you've noted, this video clock seems to be a key difference between some BIOS. The Asus ones seem to be the most significant. I'm finding on an NVIDIA FE that the video clock floats around 1885 when the GPU is at 2100. If Asus has theirs well below that then that definitely could explain the issue people were seeing with previous Strix BIOS being so much slower than FE BIOS.

Seems like to get a good all around picture of an overclock we'll need to talk about both clocks. Pushing the core clock well above the video clock might look sexy, but it seems like it pushes the power limit and Vcore without giving performance. Video clock seems to be very important to getting good performance.

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.

Well guys, I used this new bios on my FE, and no joy.
3D is unstable. Cant even get "old" clocks that are stable on stock bios, stable. 3D mark crashing after 10-15s. Even with 1.093v. Even with 1.2V....Hmmmm. Not sure why ?
I only did TDP hard mod + flashed this bios.... redface.gifrolleyes.gif

Strange. Still you already have some great clocks there bro, no need to lose sleep over it. wink.gif Did some gaming last night with Skyrim with t4 xflash, logs afterward showed max temp at 96C. Gonna have to run with OSD on and find out what's going on and/or switch back to original VBIOS. :/

I will reflash again tomorrow.... Thats rly weird that it doesnt work while it should! Also I may try some other bioses.... got any ideas which ones are worth trying ? smile.gif
