Spall Still looking for a stock backplate and baseplate if anybody who went water has one they want to unload.

Spall Hey all,

Has anybody here had any success installing a Morpheus II cooler onto their FTW3? I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to install it while keeping the baseplate that cools the VRM/Memory intact.

Also, wondering if anyone has a stock backplate and or baseplate that they would like to unload. EVGA will not sell the parts for it.

Thanks!

ThrashZone Hi,
You'd have to show some screen shots what your clocks are exactly
Power limit I'd stay lower than maxed out same with core voltage all it does is zap to nvidia driver safety features at best it may throttle the heck out of it worst as you state crash.

OC 101 is max all three fans 100% using evga precision it's the only utility that can control them all
After that you could use msi ab but why unless you want to use a custom core clock and I doubt you'd be able to go further than 2038MHz maybe 2050 at 1083 or so 1093v is hit and miss at about core +88 depending on the benchmark used.

Memory clock is usually the best I've used on air cooling +900 easily most the time.
Core clock is the quirk
All I can say is start with +65 and run the memory clock up as far as you can until you get memory spots and dial it down -20.. until they disappear.

Then start raising the core clock +13 until unstable happens.

On another note if the card is going past 60c you're wasting time oc'ing it further you're passing the throttling temp and the ftw3 has three sensors which will cause throttling core/ memory/ power sensors of which power is usually highest and not read by msi ab

DivineLight Looks like I found the right thread for me, since I have this card. I am currently trying to run a custom curve. What kind of clocks can I expect at 1 V? No matter what I try, applying a custom fan curve will crash.

I also have the EVGA software installed (because I once reworked the fancurves for each fan), but use Afterburner.

ThrashZone Hi,
Darn thread was buried lol

For the record this is the ftw3's slave vbios
https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...i-11264-170418

And the king|pin fix just read the op it does fix the slave vbios perfectly

BullyApC Kokin, thanks for the clarification. I noticed that there were 3 FTW3 Kingpin posted Bios installing applications. The release dates on them were all back in March. At the exact same time that Kingpin posted his three applications, this .rom was posted at techpowerup: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...i-11264-180309. I think it is the same bios. I have been running it for a while now. Before flashing to that bios, my superpostion score on extreme was: 6466, after the flash my score improved to: 6513. That seems like a small improvement but honestly it's' a huge jump.

I apologize if my wording was vague as it's still a BIOS meant for the FTW3, but came from the Kingpin forums as an "unofficial" BIOS. From my understanding of the situation, EVGA says Nvidia has certain power delivery requirements/guidelines that prevent them from listing this BIOS as an "official fix" for the power limit issue. However, they are allowing people to reflash it to their Slave BIOS slot as long as the Master BIOS slot is left alone.

Honestly I didn't see a difference between the stock Slave BIOS and the "fixed" Slave BIOS in terms of higher overclocking numbers even though it's pulling more power. I'm using an EK waterblock, so I do not hit any voltage or temp limits, but was always triggering the power limit.

I used Superposition 8K optimized to push the power limit.

The original Slave BIOS had no issues reaching 127% back when I bought this GPU last September, but it's a shame Nvidia mandated lower power requirements preventing EVGA from calling the Kingpin BIOS "official".

somebadlemonade I keep hitting the voltage limit at 2025MHz.
=/
I guess I can't complain about getting over 2GHz.

The weird thing is I'm not where near either power limit at around 108%-110%.
