    Pop over to the 3dmark 11 and 3dmark 13 threads in the benchmarking section. Ran FireStrike at 1430 7604 and 1506 7604 and look at the fps and graphics score. Run the benches at my clock speed if you can and compare. Pci e 3.0 8x vs pci e 2.0 8x.

    At 1430 your Gfx score beat mine by 5.8k for FS, I can get the cards stable at 1506 on their own but together they don't want to play nicely.
    I'm pretty sure 3DMark scores lower on Win10 at the moment, but there's still a wide gap between our scores.

    Give em 26 to 52mv 1506
    That's the way sli is tbh. Your likely to get a higher clock in single configurations, than sli. Won't be huge maybe around 50mhz or so.

    Well I'm running the 425w BIOS. Couldn't get more core speed out of it but it's throttling voltage much less so I have a higher boost clock over time. Might I have more luck with other BIOS?

    I'm not too bothered by the clock speeds, 980Ti is such a beast at +1400. I'll give it another crack when there's new drivers and Win10 is officially released, etc. For now they're stable at 1460-1480.

    Better temps and higher voltage will give a better overclock, as long as the BIOS isn't limiting you it shouldn't matter too much.

    Just for benchmarking, 24 7 use is clocks in sig, I up the cpu to 4.8ghz for the tests. 4.6 regular use.

    I got tired of waiting for a hybrid card, so I ordered a Gigabyte G1 980ti which arrived this afternoon. I messed around with it a bit and ended up flashing one of the BIOS I downloaded from overclock.net.

    As it stands now, the card is rock solid at 1509 MHz, +300 on the memory and +60mV to the voltage. I'm very impressed with the cooling on this card. After my hybrid 780 SLI setup, I was completely sold on a hybrid solution, but the cooling they have on this card is impressive. The BIOS I downloaded has a custom profile and while benching they can get pretty loud, but not overly so. Temps rarely climb above 70 degrees in benching.

    I'm going to play a few games now to see how the performance and noise is.

    My 3DMark for the 980ti: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5464964
    And my results from my OC'd 780 SLI setup: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5224176

    I have to admit, I'm pretty impressed so far. Now to test some games! :D

    Edit: ASIC Quality is 67.4%.

    Anyone know if the NZXT G10 bracket fits on the MSI card?

    Couldn't increase the clock even at +87.

    This.....running at 4.2 or more on a 6 core is not going to bottleneck a 980Ti.
    The 980 cpu is still a great cpu tbh and if i had it i wouldn't change just yet as there is no need cpu wise.

    Yeah I said the same thing. It's a single gpu anyways. That 980 has enough grunt to push that card well.

    Greetings all,
    Been waiting to get a Fury x, but after the last two orders I placed were delayed.....
    Sorry AMD, paper launches don't go over well.

    So anyway, I'm back on the green team. Picked up the Zotac 980 ti Arctic Storm.

    Card is doing great but I'm a bit rusty on overclocking Nvidia stuff.
    I'm using Afterburner. What's the best approach to overclocking this card and what other programs should I use?

    Thanks,
    Terry

    You made the right choice.

    For overclocking basically all you need is afterburner. You'll want to turn the power limit all the way up. Then increase your core until you find your fastest stable clock then increase memory until you find the fastest stable for that. Unlock the voltage in settings and turn that up if you want to go further. +87 is probably fine on that. In my experience with this card all cranking that way up seems to do is cause you to have a higher voltage and boost clock until it just throttles down.

    Even @ stock speeds on a 4930k is not bottlenecking gtx 980 ti in sli.

    Loving my card. I'll post some anecdotes about my experience as I think it's good info.

    MSI GTX 980 TI Gaming 6G

    Got my card like two weeks ago. First thing i thought my card was bad. It was like way too hot. Am i right? Witcher 3 @ 1440p vSync off im getting like 80c unless I ran the fan at 100% then it'd stay at about 73/74c even all the way up to 79c at times.

    Second thing I noticed is I was getting some pretty significant boost/volt drops. I started at 1.224V, next it'd drop to 1.205V, then it'd drop to 1.187V, and finally it'd bottom out at 1.168V. This corresponded with temps from turning on to 46c/56c/66c/76c. Would take me from about 1468.1Mhz down to 1400Mhz. It was a 71% ASIC card btw.

    I went out of town and tried not to think about my card that much. I decided ok well i dont wanna be voltage dropping so ill have to cool the card down and went with a Kraken G10/Corsair H55 combo.

    Now since I rarely get past 56c unless im playing some intense games iike Witcher 3 and i'll only see the one boost/voltage drop from 1.224 to 1.205 so I end up with an ok OC of about 1455Mhz on most games.

    I tried some higher voltages. Actually 1.255 seemed to be pretty good and was stable on most games for 1481.5Mhz. Some games like Wticher 3/Project cars showed red artifacts after about 15 minutes very mild. I tried 1.278V and it ran @ 1535Mhz but with all kinds of green artifacts.

    Anyways just thought i'd share my experience. The card's great other than those few quirks i dealt with.

    You sure you need extra voltage for 1455? I am running stock voltage at that speed. If you need extra voltage do it in small steps.

    1500 seems to be the limit on gpu 1 with a slight voltage increase, anything higher either has anomalies on screen or crashes to driver and returns to the stock boost of 1342 in heaven 4.0. Going to keep it at 1455/7604. Maybe with cool ambient I can raise it a bit. Not bad for air cooling.

    Not adding voltage, just normal boost/voltage states from a stock BIOS.

    Anybody here with the GTX 980ti HOF from Galax. Ordered one yesterday and I'm planning on getting a block for it but i never owned a Galax card before and can't find any reliable reviews of the ti HOF model.
