    Ahahaha, nice I'm not the only one that has happen this to him. When I baught my 580 Lightning I suddenly figured it didn't fit in my case, and I didn't even have a drive cage that was removable... I ended up picking up a new case on the next day :D


    Yeah, just that, a strangely coded game which I personally don't even want to consider anything near a benchmark of a GPUs performance, it's crippled in so many ways it's a pain.

    yeah thanx.

    but a question pls.

    it looks like DSR is active all time in games. as my monitor is default FULL HD , i cant go 2 more up resolutions which seems nice.

    now playing dead island riptide and seems no performance hit anyway at 2*** resolution and all max with control panel maximum AAs too...amazing card.

    Just started an account, been a loooooong time lurker. Popped a reference GTX 980 in my rig and I've been exceedingly happy.

    My Firestrike graphics score at 1387MHz core (1505MHz boost) and 7.6GHz mem is 15,803 which looks pretty good to me.

    The overall score is only 10,571 because my FX-8350 @ 4.5GHz only scores 8802...the Athlon 1700+ has forever made me an AMD fan, and even in the face of super impressive Intel offerings I just can't ditch my FX-8350.

    Just a couple quick questions and stuff. I'm using Afterburner to OC and I was wondering what others settings were? I've found +37mV, 125% TDP, 1387MHz core, and 1900MHz mem to be pretty reliable, but I still crash in a couple (admittedly "borrowed") games like Dying Light and Alien Isolation. I've seen some reviews where they brickwall the voltage to +87mV and TDP to 125% and got good results, and others where they don't touch the mV at all and just max the TDP limit and got good results (the logic to the latter was that the card is TDP limited so increasing voltage means less power for the core?)

    So what's the consensus? Should I try for a higher OC by increasing or decreasing voltage/TDP?

    Thanks!

    Similar setup to mine apart from my CPU OC @ 4.8

    Last Firestrike run I got this:

    Could probably squeeze a bit more from it, haven't tried since getting my new PSU, old one was causing crashing so was never sure if the OC was unstable or not

    Boosts to over 1500 depending on the game, vRAM @ 3800

    Nice shot and really nice OC! I've tried 4.6 at 1.3 but it doesn't like it, so 4.5 at stock voltage it is. What's your OC settings for your FX? Board?

    I went cheap and got a 990FX UD3 Rev 4.

    Got the FX @ 4.8GHz using 1.53v~

    It's a decent clocker this chip, if I had better cooling it would stabilize at 5GHz Im fairly sure, I was running 5GHz for a while but wasn't game stable

    Very nice! I just tried 4.6 at 1.4 and it didn't like that at all...guess my board just has an aversion to anything north of 4.5. Oh well.

    There's more things like LLC to play with that help stabilize the chip, I've had to set mine to V.High iirc

    I`ll take a few screens of my BIOS later on

    What cooling have you got for your FX?

    1.55v is max recommended vCore for these chips, but they get hot when you get up there

    Still on air cooling but finally broke 1700 MHz :)

    Got the EK-Thermosphere her but not sure it'll fit, researching as we speak.

    :3eyes: I still don't get it to be honest, what do you do different than other 980 overclockers, even those with the EVGA card?

    I give it a lot of vcore and vmem through the GTX Classified Controller software, 1.435 vcore and 1.71 vmem combined with -1C air temps blowing over the GPU.
    I'm using four 2k rpm fans to get enough cold air from an open window to the GPU, ambient in the room drops fast from 22C to 16C :cheers:

    Here you can see what I'm doing :)
