I am trying to get the best possible bios for my MSI gtx 970 (same as your card). I recently downloaded the updated bios (NV316MH.182) for the card, which solves the fan issues with the latest nvidia drivers (344.65), from this site: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=184740.0
(You have to sign in to be able to see the download link for the bios at the bottom of the first post).
I would really appreciate it if you could apply all your changes and improvements to that bios to make it perform better.
My card is currently perfectly stable at 1582MHz core, +500 memory (which reads 4001MHz in afterburner sensor), and +87mV (afterburner reports 1.250mV, not sure if thats the limit of this bios or if its reporting it incorrectly, I'm hoping you know). You can set the voltage higher than that if you think that will make it achieve a higher clock. The way I found out the max stable 1582MHz core clock was by first finding the maximum stable clock at stock voltage (1.206mV for me) which was 1557MHz. Then what I did was increase the voltage slider to the max (+87mV) and that caused the core clock to become 1582MHz. I tested it several times to make sure it was stable (no artifacts either). If increasing the voltage produces higher core clocks then it would mean that if you set the voltage as high as you think it can go (or as high as you use it) then the core clock would increase even more (and will be stable, most likely, if I properly understand how that works. ,Also, I am using max power limit of 110%, but of course it reaches it several times while running benchmarks and games, so it throttles, reducing the voltage and clock. Make sure that whatever voltage you set, doesn't cause the power limit to be reached, ever. I don't want it to throttle.
My temperatures are very good, so don't worry about that. With my custom fan profile, it never goes above 63C.
Please make this bios for me, it would be awesome if I could use this card to its maximum potential. Thanks a lot!
In case you need more information, please let me know.
The main reason why I'm asking this is because I'm not very good at changing those delicate settings and I don't want to break anything. I know how to flash the bios though.
