RobertoDaG Good evening to all !! I beg for your help: I recently bought an used 980TI EVGA HYDRO COPPER and I modded the bios by myself, reaching a 1500 on the core clock and 8120 on the memory, but I would like to know if I modded the bios correctly, and if I could go over the limits on the core I reached: it seems to me that my 980ti is not so good in OC or I made some mistakes modding the Bios (I spent a lot of time on it, making dozens of experiments) !!!
I'm on water so I don't have troubles about heat and temps !! Thanks for interesting !!

(This message contains my originl Bios and the one I make changes on)

The problem is that I'm not familiar with this table and I don't wanna ruin anything.

So I added my current BIOS here (for whatever reason, I you'd like to take a look), I want to change these setting through the BIOS and not with MSI AF cause I want this overclock to stay on whatever system/pc this GPU in.
The BIOS I made you have the power limit at 400W. If you can't push past 1506 mhz it's because that's the limit of your card. Increasing power limit won't help you overclock further anymore.

snorlaxgangs @Cyclops Hey man, i was doing some [email protected] projects and i just realize power limit glider works. The lowest i can set is 37%, only 176w power consumption. It's so great for folding 24/7. Thank you so much. This is great.

I want to change it in the BIOS itself so it'll stay even if I boot into Ubuntu.

I got into a bit trouble. The BIOS works amazing but apparently my PSU can't provide more than 300W(more or less) to my GPU.
I want to know what is the maximum I can set in the voltage slider and what values exactly should I change in the power table ('cause this is kinda scary messing with it, I don't want to kill my GPU\PCIE\everything else).

I included the BIOS here.. Thanks!

Kulltukk Damn, keep hesitating since this is my first time. I run a ryzen 3600 and it doesn't have internal graphics. Doesn't that mean that when I disable the display adapter I have no video output to do the rest of the process? Also, I reset the afterburner settings. Anything else I need to do?

EDIT: Fixed it with google chrome remote desktop. My main monitor was still running after disable display adapter. But all my GPU settings are still stock... gonna figure it out I guess

EDIT2: Okay, I got it to work. Stable for now with core @ 1532MHz and mem clock @ 4095 MHz. Max GPU temp 61 degrees. Just got 1st place in all five benchmarks in 3Dmark back to back for the Ryzen 5 3600/ single GTX 980Ti combo.

Thank you again @Cyclops Now the real stability testing begins !

I guess its individual and I have to measure the surface temp and make sure its way lower than 120 degrees celcius. That's the best I can do, right?
Yeah, that I don't know. Should be alright as long as you keep them bellow 90-100C.
