    So I've been using MSI Afterburner with this card ever since I got it 16 months ago and I've never had this issue but I put together my new PC and put my 980ti in it and now my power limit % resets to 100 every time I restart the computer. Any ideas on how to get it to stick? (yes I have "apply overclocking at system startup" checked)

    Saved it to one of the profiles?

    try this, first in setup have it start at windows login.
    Then as Extraordinary mentioned setup your profile OC how you want.
    Then as you noted "apply overclocking at system startup" and last hit the lock profiles.

    With lock profile MSI AB doesn't even have to start at login.
    Anyway that should work.

    I don't know, do a clean install, delete the whole MSI AB folder content after uninstalling it.

    Could be a locked bios

    Try to use a custom bios to unlock the bios on the 980ti as i have one too an found this was way easier to do, gave better performance and also didnt require messing about to much in msi afterburner! :)
