Bit the dust

Looks like one of my 980 ti's bit the dust last night and wouldn't post a picture to the screen. I mean I could tell Windows was loading but got no picture.
The motherboard would beep even at post with code D6 which meant no console output. Was weird because I always had trouble syncing the screen via
displayport to the video card but now not even hdmi or dvi port works. Wonder what went wrong. Had both cards water cooled and temps were good.
Overclocked to 1506/8000 mhz and everything seemed stable. No instability while gaming. Even was playing Wolfenstein an hour earlier before it went
to hell and no problems. At least if I unseat the primary card from the PCI-E slot I can get into Windows from the second video card.

Guess I need to rethink my cooling and video card setup now.

This sucks.

H3avyweight I have a GTX 980 non-ti Kingpin and the Nameplate led in blue color got weak, almost erased.
The red and green are already normal. In other sectors of the gpu the blue Led is also normal.

davidm71 Hi,

Any of you guys familiar with the XOC bios for the 980 Ti KPE? It has a bios version number that is one step newer than the other bios versions. XXXXXX.D0 vs XXXXXX.90.

ThrashZone Hi,
You can also ask on the evga community too there are some good people there.

fpisti35 Thanks for your respond. I though this forum much faster like a customer service but if nobody can help I will ask them.

I have found two unverified vbios for my card just I'm not sure they are original one or already overclocked. But will check tomorrow when work from home.

ThrashZone Hi,
You can probably message evga support for original vbios.

fpisti35 Hi mates,

I bought a second hand EVGA GTX 980 K|NGP|N Classified video card but it has same fan issue. The fans are always off but if a set control to manual on EVGA Precision nothing happen until PC switch off. After the PC restart fans works on constant rpm but automatic control doesn't work at all. I stressed GPU to 90 Celsius but still nothing, always off.

I didn't check BIOS yet but my plan to change back original factory BIOS.

I spent few hours but didn't find an original BIOS just overclocked ones.

If anyone has a saved factory BIOS please send it to me?

davidm71 Hi,

I know I'm late to the game but finally water cooled my old 980 Ti KPEs. Had the blocks sitting in a draw for three years too afraid of taking the risk watercooling until now. Anyhow was wondering if any past 980 ti KPE owners mind sharing their overclock settings for that card. My Asic scores are 75/76.5 depending on card and load temps under 3dmark Stress testing module maxes out at 39 degrees on hottest gpu. I have also enabled both 25mv dip switches on back of card though while stress testing Afterburner is saying each card is at 1430 mhz at 1.20 -1.21 volts. So going to raise the frequency now without touching vcore through Afterburner. Read I could go up to 1.3 v max if I had to but not sure about that..

Any help be appreciated..

MonarchX This is my setup and my best OC on air with GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin. It's a fully 100% stable 24/7 crash-free gaming overclock. GPU goes up to 2025Mhz as advertised, but downclocks itself to about 1950Mhz at times, depending on temperature and game GPU utilization:



1. Does OC seem right to you?
2. When it comes to MSI AB "Compatibility Properties" settings/options, am I using correct ones? Kingpin edition uses its own custom VRM's, sensors, BIOS, etc., therefore I assume generic settings would not work correctly. When it comes to OC, there doesn't seem to be a difference between:
a. "User mode" and "Kernel mode" options for "Enable low-level hardware access interface"
b. "Reference", "Standard MSI", "Extended MSI" and "Third party" options for ""Unlock voltage control"
c. "Force contrast voltage" option enabling and disabling

I neither like nor use original Precision X or the new one because both are very cluttered, bloated, stuttery, cause pauses when applying settings and do not help with OC in any way... I just don't get how EVGA could take snappy and responsive MSI AB as a base and degrade it that far.., but back on topic - this thread is about getting the right MSI AB settings for EVGA GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin.

Which makes 1350 in Valley or anything I do since I'm watercooled. The sensor on GPU-Z doesn't monitor boost clock, so it never sees it correctly and the main page on GPU-Z only reports the core clock and boost clock, not the boost clock within temperature limit. So that's the answer. I'm running at 1350 stable. Happy camper :-) I must have a decent chip since I can push it to 1375 and still be stable on stock voltage.
GPU core clock as reported on gpuz sensor tab is the actual gpu frequency. So per the images you added in your first post, your gpu is running 1154mhz
