I must say though my BIOS flashed 780ti at some point did something weird and burnt itself out and my MB. I didn't really troubleshoot the damage as much as just get a 980 and new MB. I didn't want to risk the 980 by testing the board or the new board by trying the 780ti on it. But yeah, the 780ti was drawing ridiculous amounts of power. I clearly had no idea how much.

It's kind of good benching two big cards and not having to add a second power supply, two over volted 780ti KPE's on an overclocked X79 or X99 and one wasn't enough to bench

Thanks for offering help and to Hyper for suggestion. By the time I read your CMOS issue that helped you, I was so frustrated that I ended up doing a fresh install of Win10. I still had some odd issues after the fresh install, it appears one of the SSD's or the port it was connected or even the cable was bad. After I did the install, I wiped that drive, removed the MBR from it, but when I would try to add that SSD to my system, it would just hang and be stuck in the loading of Windows screen forever. I was able to get my 1tb SSD to work without issues. Anyways, system is up and running, still doing some tweaks to settings and such.

But the good/great news is I was finally able to mess around with my new Titan. My card seems to be running well. I was able to hit 2012 with not hitting higher that 65c in temps in Fire Strike Ultra. I have a fan profile where it matches speed with temp. I was able to hit rank #40 in the world on the Fire Strike Ultra Single Card Hall of Fame. I originally was at 50, but I had ended up adding a +200 to the memory, which stabilized the clocks. I noticed that when I had the core at +200 with memory untouched, it would fluctuate from 1785-2012 and bounce in between those ranges. Again, temp never breached 65c. However when I added a +200 memory, the clocks would stay in the 1945-2000 range pretty consistently, it would never drop below the mid 1900's. It seems like a +200 to the memory helped sustain the clocks at a more consistent speed. Don't think this happened with my Titan Maxwell.

I did try to go to +250 on the core, but that was a no go. It would crash within 30 seconds of the run. I am going to do a few more runs going up +10 on each to see what I can top out at.

Last question because I am still installing stuff, whenever MSI Afterburner runs, I get a error that that it cant reach the River Tuner servers or something like this. This is with the latest beta version. I am still able to use AB without issue, but whenever I load it up, about 15 secs after I get this pop up error about it not being able to reach the RT servers. Any idea?

I also did a run of the new Time Spy and was ranked 29th. http://www.3dmark.com/hall-of-fame-2/timespy+3dmark+score+performance+preset/version+1.0/1+gpu

Shunt mod tutorial:

Warning: CoolLabratory Liquid Ultra (and Pro) are conductive thermal interface materials. We use this conductivity to lower the resistance in the card to do this mod, but this conductivity means it is dangerous and can destroy your graphics card if it spills and touches another component on the GPU. I take no responsibility if you break your own (or someone else's) GPU with this mod. If you choose to do the mod, be careful.
NOTE: you can use other liquid metal TIMs as well. Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut works fine too


EDIT: Criminal gave me a link this morning to a video where der8auer does this mod as well. I posted it at the end of this tutorial if you ant to see someone apply the liquid metal in a video rather than just pictures.



1) Start off by removing the backplate and cooler from your GPU. To do this you will need a size #0 phillips screwdriver and a 4mm socket wrench. Once all the screws and bolts are out the cooler should come off relatively easy, so if it is not coming off then you probably forgot a screw somewhere. Likely places that get forgotten are on the end of the card with the display outputs.

2) Once the cooler is removed your card should look like this:


The three resistors on the card are circled in red. We are only going to mod the top two resistors.



3) Place a small bit of Liquid Ultra on the two top shunt resistors. These resistors have a case label of "5MO". You dont need a ton of CLU, just a small dab that you will spread out. See the picture here for how much I applied:





4) Now use the brush included in the CLU package to spread the CLU over the whole top of the resistors. Be careful not to spill it off the resistor. If the CLU spills off the top of the resistor it will most likely destroy your graphics card. Be careful not to use too much CLU as using too much will cause a spill as well when you put the graphics card back together. There is an inductor very close to resistor #2 (RS2) that can easily be spilled onto. Be very careful with this step.





Your graphics card should look like the above picture now. Put the cooler back onto the card and you are done!

To remove this mod from your graphics card, simply wipe away the CLU. If the liquid ultra has hardened then you may be able to use a hair drier for a very brief period to liquefy the material again so that you can remove it.

I showed a screenshot of before and after the mod in 3DMark earlier to show the mod works. Graphics score rose by 223 points in FS Ultra with the mod. I have now been playing a video game for the past 3 hours since doing the mod and posting this with no problems.


By covering both the resistors on the Titan X you should increase your power limit by about 30-35%. This will give you some additional headroom for overclocking so the card doesnt throttle down due to power limit. However, the Titan X (Pascal) has very poor VRM setup on the GPU. It is not rated very high and adding 30% more power from this mod, combined with setting your PT slider to 120% will allow the GPU to draw what I consider to be unsafe levels of power to the core. This mod should let you draw around 390 watts of power, but I dont consider anything over 350w on the Titan X to be safe. Just because you *allow* the card to draw that much power, doesnt mean it will of course. However to be safe, you may want to limit your power target slider to only 110%. That, combined with this mod, should let you draw around 350 watts max before the limit kicks in which will keep your card's VRM from frying.

As you can see, this mod is for the Titan X, and Der8auer's video is for the GTX 1070 and 1080. These mods works for any Nvidia card going back to at least the 700 generation, and probably in future generations as well. Not all cards will have 3 shunt resistors, you may only have 2 resistors because of the single power connector input on your GPU. If you only have 1 power connector, only apply CLU to the one resistor at the top.

Just gone one to replace my Maxwell Titan X
post #1736 of 7600
If possible I want your opinion guys about a few questions, thanks so much. i try to get the more speed possible from my pc to help me with my titan x pascal performance.

I made some tests with witcher 3 with my memory ddr3 downclocked from 1600 to 1066mhz. and with ddr3 at 1066mhz, some people were right , i got much more fps drop and they were worst. For a example , at 1600mhz it was down to 55-56fps drop VS 49-50 with 1066 speed instead...
Its not night and day difference , but 1600 is really better than 1066, and some place i got no fps drop with 1600 but 1066 got one. So to help me with my fps drop problem i made a move...

I got a deal. i sold my h97-plus and 32gb ddr3 1600 for 200$Canadian money , i keep my 4790k and i got a big sale deal so i bought 32gb ddr3 at 2400 mhz cas 11 from Team Dark( i will overclock at cas9 or 10 or 2666mhz, which is better 2666 or cas 9-10?) and i bought a MSI Z97 PC MATE. I bought this msi board and the ddr3 team dark memory because it was very cheap vs other hardware choice. So in canadian money it cost me 280$CA( its like 180-190usa money) , so for 80$ca more im ok with changing my ddr3 memory and im happy to got a z97 board too. I trust msi a lot, i always loved their board and custom videocard. Is team dark memory reliable enough?

What do you think of this guys? Is it a good deal, a good upgrade for 80$ ?

I have another question. I checked a lot on the web, i have a 1tb wd black for Windows10 and gaming, and it seem that SDD hard disk only offer faster loading, but no fps gain. Is it true? Otherwise i will buy a cheap one . But i had one with a laptop and i dont care about os loading faster , and programs loading faster. If it cant offer better game performance in fps , i dont want it. BUT if it can help with fps drop or stuttering i will buy one. Thanks for your opinions, its always very appreciated guys thumbsupsmiley.png

I made these changes to get the more power possible of my TITAN X PASCAL wink.gif

Thanks for clearing that up. Out of curiosity, do you need to pay any custom charges too from EU?

I believe all of us got tracking number for that french site that did not work. I checked a local delivery company and found out the card was in sweden then checked the same tracking number on a swedish delivery company. My card arrived in Norway this morning and can now track it here. You can alos try and check your local delivery company and see if they have a global search function and just enter your tracking number there.

There is a custom fee for some things. For automotive parts there is no customs fee. It is probably 3 years since i ordered pc parts outside norway so i dont remember if it is any fee on that.
We need to make sure we dont pay local tax in the country we order things from. Norway will charge 25% no matter what.

Price of item + shipping + 25% and maybe a custom fee on top of that.

But the price on the site should reflect the total cost with tax...

Woot. Went to local UPS site and I can track it there. smile.gif Thanks a lot!
