    39k FireStrike graphics score. That's almost 3 times the gpu power of my 970. Droolz. Nice one Odellot.

    Would 5960x be a worthy upgrade from my 3930k for SLI 980ti's (when they bloody arrive)? I have "bottlenecking" paranoia from what is most likely misinformed forum posts.

    You will see no benefit. Not now, not anytime soon. For now, fast cores >> more cores. For later, you already have a heavily-threaded (12!) CPU that's powerful enough. Enjoy the 980Ti's when they arrive and don't worry about CPU bottlenecks. If you do hit a bottleneck, then know that no CPU out there can really lift that bottleneck over what you have now, so it's something we would all be facing (e.g. hitting 120FPS in GTA V is not going to happen even if you have the GPU horsepower for it).

    Thanks guys :)

    Im using MSI ab to overclock, +605 for 8210mhz.
    My cpu score helps, im only 500 points from 20k total score, could beat it.

    Weird thing is combined score is 9006 with higher oc than the 1523 clock which scored 9200~ combined.. Some oddity, i notice that gpu usage goes to 80% and stays around there.

    Anyways no need to upgrade your CPU, will last you a few years easy.

    Not much point in upgrading regarding games

    Just saw someone in another forum who wants to use a Titan for physx with his 980ti. :D

    980 Ti G1 Gigabyte card just came in stock. So tempted to pick one up. Think I'd set my 970 up to be PhysX + run my other 2 monitors and just have the 980 Ti on my Acer XB270HU

    Or I have an old 680 4GB FTW, or a 550 Ti I could swap in for the other monitors/physx and use the 970 in one of those machines.

    Sounds like a stability issue. Maybe not enough to manifest itself in a crash or artifacts but losing actual performance sounds like you need to dial it back a bit.

    So I've been messing around with the voltage and having some issues. For one +70 only seems to raise voltage by .045 (to 1.244 from 1.199). Secondly after a minute or two of stress testing it drops the voltage back down to 1.224. No matter what voltage I raise it to it always drops down to 1.224. What's the deal with this?

    Thing is, happens at stock too, i also recall the titan i had not being a flat 99% gpu usage on combined either..

    You said you got 9200 at 1526 core. 1526 isn't stock. Lol

    Upon further testing it seems I've hit my max TDP. 1416 boost seems to be the absolute max I can sustain once the fan ramps up (25% fan it drops down to 1.199v and 1416 core). So how dangerous is BIOS modification? Also how dangerous is water cooling? How much of a chance do I have of springing a leak?

    Well, I've been custom water cooling for 10 years now across a lot of different systems. I've only ever had one major leak, which was user error and I got lucky and didn't loose any hardware. If you take your time and look into it, it's very unlikely you will have any problems. In fact I would never do a build without water cooling as its almost a hobby in itself.

    Can you edit the voltage using the Maxwell editor or can it only be done by hex edit?

    The combined score always seems to fluctuate a little bit.

    Hey there, i'm currently looking into upgrading to a 980ti myself and I'll put a waterblock on it.

    Back when I owned a 680 i was always annoyed by the lock on the voltage, could anyone tell me if any of the 980ti's with custom pcb's dont have this lock on it? I'm guessing the soon to be (i hope) MSI lightning won't have this lock, but are there any other cards that are also unlocked?

    thanks in advance :)

    Think it's worth stepping up to the Classified or should I wait for Kingpin?

    Wow I was just comparing out scores and didn't realize until now how much the CPU matters in Fire Strike. My graphics score is a little over 100 points higher than yours, but your physics score absolutely blows mine out of the water. Same with your combined. I do love benching so a CPU upgrade would be a good idea, but I won't do it anytime soon. Not worth the money IMO because like you said, the differences in gaming are negligible.
