Most likely, there seems to be just a single bin mission for those 14k you're after.
If you OC that cpu to 4.6ghz you will get physics ~ 13100 and that will give you extra points to break 14k
I get ~ 13450 @ 4.7ghz.
Joined the "980 club" a few days ago.. Coming from SLI MSI Twin Frozr GTX 680s (2GB)
Got a straight Nvidia reference 980.. Very first reference Nvidia card I've ever bought. I usually always went with the various other makes.. Nice to have a Nvidia branded version...
So far.. Very impressed.. Did a quick +250/+500 OC and adjusted my fan curves and it out performs my previous SLI setup.. + the 4GB of VRAM.. Single card.. I'm loving it.
980 Vs SLI Twin Frozr 680s...
3DMark 11 Extreme test. My 680s were poor poor poor overclockers so I kept them at stock speeds.. Can't wait to add a 2nd card in a few months
ASUS GTX 980 STRIX DC II OC Video Card
Just bought this card...love it so far !!
I am overclocking at this moment...so far :
GPU boost at 1500 mhz, rest default also Power Target at 0100.
Fan at 70%
Tried running Unigine Heaven several times, no artifacts and a temp. of 63C
Any good ??
FPS 150.0 and score 3777.
In most reviews I saw you have to pump up the power target at 0125 ??
to get 1500 mhz boost...not me.
Forgot, PC running at 4.6 (stable)
EDIT : max stable seems Memory 8064 without overclocking GPU.
Congratz on new toy they are nice indeed.
Most people have power target/core Voltage set so the card is allowed more juice when needed (this will also raise temps if card needs the voltage to keep up)
Regarding your results, to thoroughly test your stability in heaven, run all at max/ultra , judging by your score that has not been done
Note: even when you get no arti's/strange behaviour in heaven, you'll need some hours of actual game testing also.
I did 2 runs just now to illustrate (1 at my resolution all maxed and 1 with 1920x1080 not all maxed:
As you can see, quite the difference and most important, you WANT TO STRESS that F**** for artifact hunting hehe :nerd:
Lastly, my card run at 75 degrees when doing heaven for an hour, and the reason my mem isn't clocked higher is that if i do..i loose performance, this was the setting that yielded best for me.
Thanks for your reply
So back to my drawing-board so to speak.
Its a great card thats for sure !!
I also noticed a big difference with my CPU set at default or 4.6 !!
This mean this card needs a lot of headroom, default the difference with my GTX580 wasn't that great but with 4.6 GHZ :thumbup:
So your MEM is set at 7600 mhz ?? gives better performance then higher ??
So higher is not always better.
Nice day !!
Did heaven 5 times...later on longer.
Mem > 8064 GPU default...also POWER TARGET and so on.
Heaven with 8xFSAA and ULTRA quality !!
FPS 90.7 and score 2285
TEMP. third time 69C after five also 69C ...not bad
I want artifacts
I forgot TESSELLATION > EXTREME !! 70.1 FPS / 1766...no problem, 62C.
I have done some GPU only tests...rest default.
GPU > 1500 no problem > MAX 63C
GPU > 1510 no problem > MAX 61C
GPU > 1520 no problem > MAX 61C
GPU > 1530 no problem > MAX 62C
GPU > 1540 no problem > BUT suddenly 70C :3eyes:
ALSO 5 FPS less in end-score HEAVEN ????
Any idea, why lower score ?? a lot more heat.
Did you check if you hit power target? vrel target? Also, those cards start to step down from their full boost at around 68°C as far as I've read, so you might be getting the occasional downclock for split seconds. Hard to tell without readings and pics of those
Using GPU tweak (asus) ...it gives MAX power target (monitor) 100 %.
Maybe the max is 1530, not bad
Also gave GPU max 1580.0 during Heaven, is that a good thing ?
Well 1530 isn't a bad clock if it's stable for gaming, espacially if you're having the vram at 8GHz+. If you're hitting power target at 100% you see why the card does not clock higher: It would need more power to do so. Try raising the power target with the GPU tweak slider, that's what I'd try then.
I will give it a try
I have been running Heaven for half an hour...TEMP MAX 70C
Both GPU 1530 and MEM at 8064 seem time.
FPS 75.7 / score 1906
TEMPS are fine ??
Good result....or good it be better ?? I red somewhere that guys who hit 1500 with the GPU already were the Lucky ones.
14003 in firestrike
gpu at 1500 isn't all too uncommon with the right settings, whereas vram at 8064 isn't bad! Fortunately, the Strix cards seem to have Samsung memory I believe, which makes it easier to overclock than Hynix chips.
Also, have you taken a look at Shamino's Lair? There's special tools and BIOSs there, capable of working around the voltage limit on the Strix cards. See [here] for further information.
Of course, use at your own risk, and be safe and edit your own card's BIOS just to be safe.
I've got a question: Does anybody here have one of those 'pro sli bridges', the hard ones from nvidia, EVGA or Asus?
Because I was wondering if I should get one of those, or just run with the 'soft' bridges that came with my Rampage 5 Extreme. Mind you, I'll try running 1440p + SLI 980s (2way) plus up to 144Hz.
I am running the new PRO SLI bridges V2 and they are running great. Also used the V1 that came out couple months ago. Quality products from EVGA
Did you buy them after having troubles, or did you just get them for the looks / a 'hard' bridge?
What do you think about my performance?
Nope. Never had any problems with any sli bridge from EVGA. Used the V1 for about 5 months, then I saw EVGA released V2 and bought them mostly for the looks. Been running V2 for couple of weeks now. All running great.
I have Gigabyte 980 G1 Gaming with BIOS from January this year(I updated to that myself), so stock gigabyte BIOS.
In MSI afterburner I see the option for power limit and voltage are greyed out!
How do you guys bump the voltage a little bit ? my card is not getting stable more than 50-80 MHz on the core and I guess it's a voltage shortage that I need to increase. My card never exceeds 60C when gaming so cooling is not an issue for me.
