How To Flash A Different BIOS On Your 1080 Ti. - Page 12

post #111 of 341
I've also decided to go back to stock. At the same clock speeds I was getting worse performance. Seems like it's a hardware limit that really just cannot be bypassed with software. All it's doing is limiting the in-game FPS to achieve that constant and stable clockspeed in order to prevent crashing. Similar to overclocking the memory too far, you're going to get worse results than if you'd let it drop down by 10Mhz or so.

Why don't you use "nvflash -4 -5 -6 bios.rom" command?
post #113 of 341
The FE will occasionally run past it's maximum power draw, we have seen it plenty of times. Sometimes you can go up to 125%. That's similar to when the ASUS bios goes up to 112%.

Here you go, I just played a bit of witcher to prove my point. Hitting 124%



This is the stock bios hitting 310 Watts

Just curious what memory chips to the 1080ti cards run ? I remember back in the 980ti days if you got samsung you were good, is it the same now or do they all use hynix/micron ?

I believe they're all running hynix.

It seems that 6 and 8 pin power connectors are not firmware controlled anymore. They are hardware controlled. The only benefit to replace the BIOS on the FE card is if the card does not use the full 300 W on the original bios. https://xdevs.com/guide/pascal_m_oc/
post #118 of 341
I needed something to do because of my extreme pain, so I did a test. I fed 6 and 8 pin power from a secondary power supply and measured with a power meter from the wall and then compensated for the efficiency of the power supply. If we assume that the card draws 76 W from the PCIe slot as former Titan it gets. 294.5 w FE and Strix 302 W (7.5 W 2.5% diff). The question is whether it will benefit or just extra heat FE does not have RGB LED or external fan controller, it may create conflict. So I stick to FE firmware. Blower is not made to pause the fan. Sure, you can run with your own fan curve but it feels better if it loses contact.

I did a measurement yesterday using the nvidia power measure command.

Got 305 max on the stock and 310 for the asus

Although both did have a random spike and went up to 330 watts just for a second. But they did not stay there ever.

"Your top display port will be disabled if you flash another BIOS on your FE"
So, How to fix this issue? Becase I'm using only Display Port for Monitor.
