I have an Asus 970 Strix (STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5) mounting the latest bios released by Asus, the AS17 that I have attached in this post.
On MSI AB, I have set +20mV at core voltage, 120% power limit, 91C Temp. limit, +170mhz to the core and +440 to the memory. Either by increasing the core voltage or keeping it at +20, there is no way to increase even of a mere +10 the core clock or memory clock without generating artifacts (checked on the furmark artifact scanner).
ASIC quality is 68.9% and keeps temperatures very well, around 70 degrees at benchmark time.
I have tried today some modded BIOS that people have made in this forum for other people having my same GPU but I have never been able to improve the Unigine Heaven Benchmark's score where the difference between a modded bios and the stock+AB is around 10 points, with the vanilla BIOS scoring more.
I had a look at the BIOS mapper but I prefer not to mess with it. I wonder if any of you guys would be able to mod the vanilla BIOS for me to try going stable and safe beyond my current settings (as shown in the attachments).
