  1. I think that the problem also might be the fact that the card is factory overclocked quite a bit. So that probably leaves me with nothing to overclock. Yep, they are applied and they do go up Thank you for your help though I will give voltage and power limit a try.
  2. Just tested it on lower settings - 1080p medium settings (Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Benchmark) Literally went from 73 to 74 FPS even though the FPS difference should be quite a bit bigger with higher frame numbers That's 1.3% Increase. People are easily getting 10% from this card (Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming GTX 980 TI)
  3. Hi! I've been dealing with some strange overclock results with my GTX 980 Ti card. Firstly my overclock settings are looking like this: GPU Clock: +50Mhz Memory Clock : +500Mhz Power Limit: 110% No Voltage Increase Now the issue: When testing in many games that ususally run about 45 FPS in 4k resolution, after applying the overclock and seeing the clock speeds go up properly, I'm getting maybe +1 FPS at best. Which is within the margin of error, so it might as well be +0 FPS I tried running a benchmark like Shadow Of The Tomb Raider's benchmark and I went from 37 to 38 FPS on 4k, High settings and that's it. I've been having trouble increasing my GPU Clock much past +50Mhz without running into issues this is probably part of the problem, but as I understand the Memory Clock still should make a big difference. I have a LAPTOP with a gt740m pushing +340mhz on the memory clock (even though people saying that 300mhz is the absolute maximum) and with +0 Mhz on GPU Clock getting +25% boost in whatever application meanwhile my WINDFORCE GTX 980 Ti which I believe is the best model on the market is barely sqeezing half a frame if you take the margin of error into account. My specs: Ryzen 2700x Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming GTX 980 TI (441.66 Driver Version) 32GB Ram DDR4 Windows 10 Home
  4. Well, for sure that's not the temps, because even when I launch a game fresh, while the gpu temp is just 48 degrees. I'm not getting any increase in performance or gpu clock speeds when changing the offset. I just noticed that I have the same with my GTX 980Ti too on my PC and that surely doesn't suffer from any sort of thermal throttling, so it's not just a problem for my laptop anymore. Which makes me think, is this a common issue or what? I barely find anybody talking about it anywhere. I might try to mess with the power limit I guess.
  5. I wanna overclock my gt740m in my old laptop I don't really care about and I have overclocked the memory clock for the card successfully. But the gpu clock won't increase even though I cranked up the offset. So I feel like I'm leaving performance on the table here. I've tried nvidia inspector and precision X so far and I get the same result. The operating system I have is windows 10. I'd like to know if there is any fix for this, thanks! Let me know if you need any more info.
  6. Actually I have an update! I just plugged my GTX 960 into my PC #2 and the HDMI didn't work, only the DVI worked. and as it turns out... the GTX 650 I tested, none of the ports actually worked for some reason even in the PC #2, and the PC #2 Actually was running on the integrated card while the GTX 650 was inside it. Which is weird because the GTX 650 was running just fine a couple hours ago, the fans even spin and everyting. But anyway.... The VGA to HDMI adapter is probably faulty, i will get a new one and see how it goes, I will also get a display port cable.
  7. But also... Remember the GPUs ports only don't work ONLY on my main PC (the PC #1 in the original post), in other PCs both gtx 960 and gtx 650 work just fine. So is it worth potentially bricking your GPU for something that has seemingly low chance of solving the issue given the circumstances? Could it be something to do with the motherboard (which is only like 3 or 4 months old) or a powersupply? I also tried reseting my BIOS to defaults, didn't work. Also could reflashing my motherboards BIOS potentially fix this?
  8. Ok I might need your help reflashing my vBIOS! I followed the instructions in this forum post: https://www.overclock.net/forum/69-nvidia/1627212-how-flash-different-bios-your-1080-ti.html But something didn't go trough, I didn't brick my GPU, but it didn't work. I got my replacement BIOS from here, which is my exact card model: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/181331/asus-gtx960-4096-150630 I have uploaded the CMD output in attatchments BIOS flash.txt
  9. Ok I'm back now after running safe mode DDU and installing latest drivers. As I expected, no progress, the HDMI still doesn't work on my gtx 960. This a very weird sutiation and it doesn't make any sense I really don't know where to start. Another thing I noticed is when I would unplug my DVI connection, plug in the HDMI (which doesn't work), then after unplugging the HDMI, and plugging in the DVI, the screen turns on but it shows only black and PC has to be restarted to make it work again. With the HDMI the monitor just goes to sleep mode, it doesn't even show a black signal. Also before we continue, let me mention that the situation originated yesterday, simply by unplugging and replugging the HDMI cable. After that I was never able to get it working again. I don't have another HDMI cable in my house, but I'm 99% sure it's not the cables problem as the GPUs HDMI port when I plugged it into PC #2 using the same cable and VGA to HDMI adapter. My monitors do not support HDMI so I have to use an adapter. That's the next thing I'm going to be doing Also massive thanks to everybody helping me out, you have no idea how much I appreciate your help even though we haven't fixed the issue yet :))
  10. Yes I'm a 100% sure it is not the cables or the screens. In fact the computer I'm typing from RIGHT NOW is the problematic PC #1 with the same monitor and cable I used for troubleshooting. I will try it in a second, though note that I already ran DDU, just not in safe mode. Also when HDMI is plugged in, not even bios screen shows up, so I don't see how drivers can affect something when I'm not even booted in windows. But I will try it.
  11. I don't have a display port, but I've read one similar thread on Toms Hardwere with a guy with a pretty much identical problem with his gtx 1060 and he tried HDMI and Display Port, both of which gave him the black screen. So switching to a different port I'm 99% sure is not gonna be a solution. There is something in my PC that hates every port except for DVI.
  12. I have a problem which ruined my dual monitor setup and I have no Idea where to even begin solving it. Check this situation: 1. I have a monitor which is connected to my PC #1 using a VGA cable + VGA to HDMI adapter (bc gtx 960 doesn't have a VGA connection) and it shows a black screen 2. I swap the adapters and plug my monitor into my PC #1 using a VGA to DVI adapter. It works correctly. Now i'm thinking my GPUs HDMI port is fried.... 3. So I put the same GPU in my PC #2 and connect the same monitor using a VGA cable + (the same) VGA to HDMI adapter. And It works. It also works with the VGA to DVI Adapter. 4. Put the GPU back in PC #1 and connect it using VGA + VGA to HDMI adapter and it does not work... So my GPUs HDMI is not fried... but there is something my PC#1 doesn't like about that HDMI connection. Just a note... that HDMI connection was working just fine yesterday... it literally broke in split second. ONLY on that PC #1 Additionally: I got a gtx 650 from my friend and installed it into my PC #1 and all of a sudden the HDMI and even VGA didn't react, the monitors just went to sleep mode. And the gtx 650 was working just fine before
