I fixed this problem by setting the Global profile to Adaptive and individual game profiles to Prefer Max Performance. When I'm in Windows it's whisper silent and in game doesn't throttle smile.gif"
Sure I can add that advice, thanks!
Thanks for the feedback!!Holy Benchmark!! (Click to show)
WOW!!! Look at those scores!!!!

I took a look at the log, I can see that you did have a 100Mhz throttle occur which is a sign the card wasn't happy. I have seen that happen when the GPU is just simply being pushed too hard. It may not necessarily be your GPU, it could be other PCB components limiting you. Each card is different. I would recommend you lower your overclock to say 1530, test to make sure everything is good, and then bump it up +20Mhz at a time as far as you can go until the issue appears again. Your temps look OK your fan was wide open but if you notice at the end you started getting a "4 Perfcap".

Reverted back to the GIgabyte F4 bios because this bios only gives me ~20-30Mhz depending on the game/benchmark boost over that before artifacts appear and that was only testing a few games/benchmarks and requires much more voltage for the same clocks on my card (200mhz higher at the same voltage on gigabytes). Also my card is pretty much silent on the Gigabyte supplied F4 and loud as hell on this.
Specs: EVGA 1300w G2, Asus X99 deluxe and a 5820k.
I was able to get 1527 on stock bios, tested for several weeks so I can confirm its pretty stable. This only got me to 1555 at best and that got artifacts in the witcher 3 so I dialed it down a little to get it to run with no issues. FPS and temps in the witcher 3 were the exact same, only noticeable difference was the stock bios the 980ti is almost silent and on this it sounds almost as bad as a fermi card/290x reference cooler. On this bios that was with memory set 200mhz lower than the gigabyte too since raising it to what I used on that was crashing windows.
I also tested this bios on my last 980ti which only could get to 1480 stable on the F3 bios, but this got it up to 1540.
Thanks for the feedback. Fan speed is something you need to tweak, we'll never get one setting that suits everything. Custom fan curves sound like what you would need to suit your personal preference, not really necessary to change the entire BIOS for a fan reason but that's up to you of course. +20/+30 Mhz is more than some others get, that's not bad. The GM200's don't seem to need as much voltage as GM204 overall in general, meaning that LESS people need MORE VOLTAGE to overclock higher. 1500Mhz is excellent regardless of STOCK or MOD BIOS, a BIOS can't make magic happen
If you read the release notes there are multiple benefits of the tweaked BIOS, arguably one of the MOST popular features is the virtual elimination of throttling. The increased power will also help prevent throttling, etc. but at the end of the day it is what you like best
Thanks for trying it.

I extracted the bios after flashing, and although the versions are different, all the clock settings are identical - it is just a few fan control settings that are different.
Name: GV-N98TG! GAMING-6GD_P/F4
Checksum: 9A -[9A]
Name: GV-N98TG! GAMING-6GD_P/F3
Checksum: B5 -[B5]
Would this cause problems in games etc? I know that the nvidia drivers are rubbish at the moment, but I've been getting crashes, and display driver stop-responding problems. Also in some games, I get like a squealing at random times.
I should mention that I also use MSI afterburner for manual fan control and to boost the clock and memory some more.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi there and welcome! I keep most of the common stuff in the OP and I see someone helped you out (Thanks Robertr1!)
If you have any questions, just ask!
NVFLASH -i0 -6 nameof.rom
= GPU 1
NVFLASH -i1 -6 nameof.rom
= GPU 2
NVFLASH -i2 -6 nameof.rom
= GPU 3
NVFLASH -i3 -6 nameof.rom
= GPU 4
-i1 is short for --INDEX=1

As far as I know, you can't. I wish they would release a stand-alone app that does this.[/I][/B] Geforce experience can mess with the pattern but not the color. I actually started to try and hack the colors but didn't get anywhere. I thought of using "CHEAT ENGINE" to capture the color change commands in memory or something but lately cheat engine is bundled with Malware so forget it.
Wonder if anyone else has any ideas? I suspect technically the default color should be hackable in the BIOS itself... find WHITE, replace with BLUE or whatever...
