    I've been able to change the power limited via bios flash with all my Kepler cards. Will find out soon enough when I go to maxwell.

    Wonder about power consumption of that thing of yours. Not because I care about electricity or stuff like that.
    I just wonder how many watts that small thing dissipates in comparison to stock which runs 30% slower.

    Not quite sure as to why that is ? Remember, samples are often the first batch that is send out. Small changes do happen.

    However you guys immediately jump on the conspiracy train and don't even realize that you have got the better part of the deal. If you get 109% and I get 120% allowance that means at the default clocks you already have had 11% more on the power limiter. So the incremental extra on the power limiter, is already in use for you.

    In the end the boost allowance is all the same for these cards, you simply already had a notch more at your disposal at your default clocks, meaning your card probably already clocked a little further on the boost frequency then the review samples.

    "Default powerlimit" on customer bios is bigger, than we have less percentual but same end power (300w).

    How u get 1,274v? 980TI drop to 1,205 over 70c...

    I'm not happy of temperature in OC: hot (83°c) and a bit noisy (87% fan).

    He is under water. He probably never goes over 40°C

    Have mine set to 70% and ramps up to 80% if it gets to 80c

    Any advice before unpacking?

    Having just purchased a Zotac GTX980 Ti Amp! Extreme, I understood from the specs of my motherboard, ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3, that the graphics card would work in the x16 PCIe slot.

    I decided to check for the latest Bios for my motherboard and whilst doing so came across a few alarming threads wherein people with that ASUS motherboard had not been able to get the card to POST.

    I was wondering if anyone here has that motherboard and a 980 Ti which they managed to get working as a combination and would pass on the knowledge as to how to accomplish a full, stable boot?

    I bought the motherboard as it promised a fair degree of future proof use, especially in the GPU department. I'll be miffed if their marketing hype was all bluff and stuff.

    Here's hoping I get a positive reply or two soon as my rights of return will expire under EU consumer law next week.

    Ignore my rig specs on the left, they are over a decade old! I'll update them soon.
