so guys...i ended up buying the gigabyte windforce just because it actually was box sealed new as the seller said. but as is my luck always..i ended up losing the silicon lottery. my card stock boosted up to 1911mhz and settled at late 1800s with temps around 64c with my custom fan curve.
i then started to play with the clocks. adding 25 mhz on increment and using heaven i started to crash at anything above 2012mhz. raising the voltage or power limit only found that 2012 ran with higher volts + power throttle. but since the chip itself is as bad as my ******* LUCK (i really like oc'ing for the fun of it) i dont think it can handle even 2050. however i thought since i have my stable at core i might as well lower the volts for the sake of it .
playing the v/f curve for the above said challenge with max volt and power i figured that i can least achieve 2000mhz at 1.05v. at this point the card doesnt power throttle much and stays between 1950-2000 (2000 90% of the time due to lower volts). i couldnt find time to test for same freq at even lower volts.
i might as well mention all these tests were done with memory clocked at +550.
what do u guys think should be the lowest volt for 2000mhz. i mean i really havent got the energy to test all volts between 1.5 and 1. so any ideas would be nice.
another strange thing i noticed was that with memory oc'd i found my card to power throttle harder than with only a clock oc. any ideas on that as well?
as i said earlier m not new to oc'ing and did my fair part on 970 and 980 ti.
another thing to add is that i cant water cool. my custom fan curve at 65% gives me 65c. i dont wanna raise the fans much due to noice.
closing request. how can raise my performance with the above stated conditions.
lolz m really sry this post is getting long but i thought i should mention. i read like the last 100 pages honestly. but i really couldnt find much about windforce. so if anyone can actually link me to a possible high power limited bios for my 8 pin
