Newbie BIOS issue, Max Base clock not being hit

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So basically what I set as my max base clock isn't being hit in game. here are some screenshots I'm just unsure whats going on.




Just for reference the voltage I believe is set to 1.250, I know this is probably a really simple issue but I'm just unsure where else to ask/find info

copy every 1506mhz value into your bios. save it and the max boost limit slider on ther first page should be set to 1506 -if not set it to 1506. Now you should be at 1506 mhz in 3d mode

Thank you! This did it, now I'm still very new to BIOS tweaking, is having all my frequencies set to 1506.5 like I have on the front page a good practice? Or should I instead maybe change it back to a semi stock layout with a higher boost clock?

Okay so actually that didn't quite fix it, I did what you said and my front page now said boost to 1506, however, after running a benchmark still stuck on 1392 max, and GPU-Z confirmed it. I then went and put 1506.5 into the p05 profile as well and still no fix sadsmiley.gif Any other suggestions?

I think I know what you did wrong You HAVE TO go into MSI Afterburner and MAX OUT voltage and power limit slider ! -forgot to tell you that This should give you about 1.26V and exactly 1506mhz core clock Sometimes TDP base clock is used on the desktop and you really dont need 1506 I recommend setting tdp base clock and 3d base clock to the stock settings These setting dont affect boost clock of 1506 in 3d load

See I was hoping to configure my bios so I didn't need an external software anymore, but anyways I downloaded at maxed both those values and voltage for good measure and still no luck arrowheadsmiley.pngsadsmiley.gif is there maybe something wrong with my card? anyways I attached some more pictures maybe it helps troubleshoot it more.








anyways thanks for all the help too, I appreciate it!

Okay so I found a bios that had a similarish profile, however it was at a higher voltage 1.275 and I went in flashed it and it worked just fine no afterburner needed or anything, but then I went and adjusted the voltages and now it's back to the 1392.5Mhz. So I'm assuming it must be a voltage issue which sucks since I wanted to run 1500 mhz at a lower voltage.

I can makea bios with no software needet too Just tell me your stable men/core oc and ill mod it this afternoon For example 1.26V and 1506 4000mem in 3d mode and the rest is standard -no software needet anymore

I made a software one because instabilitys are easy and quick to fix
Just tell the mem/core oc you want in the bios the voltage will go to ~1.26 by itself and core will go up too
And tell me the voltage you want I used 1.26 as an example for air cooling Maybe you want voltage a bit lower

Sorry I just saw this but yeah that would be awesome! So Ideally I'd like the voltage around 1.25 - 1.26 with the core clock at 1506.5 Mhz and the mem at like 3900! Fans if you could would be around 50% at like 65 and 100% by 78. Anyways here is a link to my specific card stock bios! https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/168096/evga-gtx970-4096-150108-2

Thank you much mate! thumb.gif
