  1. Why don't you just get a 980Ti if you have enough money to buy two 970s? It's better in every possible way.
  2. Silicon lottery and if it's a good card(like KPE or Matrix), it can go up to 1500MHz. Even 1600-1700MHz in some extreme situations. But usually 1300MHz is the most you will be able to get.
  3. Return them. It's not natural. 65 on Idle shouldn't be happening in any case.
  4. WoW, is he actually that guy? I mostly use his screenshots as wallpaper. Currently using Witcher 3 - Ciri shot actually
  5. I managed to get 1520MHz with 1.230 volt. It was around 72C, fans running at full speed. My card gets 1340MHz max boost speed by default, and stays there without throttling, so I think 1400MHz should be quite possible on most cards.
  6. Custom PCB and all that power phase jazz is good to have but it all comes down to silicon lottery in the end. I got a reference EVGA and it overclocks to 1520~ MHz on Air(you can see mine in valley benchmark thread). I'm not even using a modded Bios yet, I'm thinking about watercooling this bad boy too, pretty sure I can go higher clock speeds with watercooling. If I were you I would just get a reference 980Ti.
  7. Better check benchmarks before making a thread guys.
  8. I have a reference design EVGA but if I had more options I would go with G1.

  10. Gimme that #1 spot CPU: 4790K@4.6Ghz GPU: 980Ti 1518/2036 FPS: 116.3 Score: 4864 Setting: Extreme HD
  11. 970 SLI is better performance wise, but I always prefer a single powerful GPU over 2 lesser ones.
  12. Benchmark: Firestrike Ultra CPU: 4790K @ 4.6GHz GPU: GTX 980 Ti GPU Core: 1251MHz (Max Boost 1484MHz) GPU Memory: 8000MHz Score: 4804 3DMark Link: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5276599
  13. Not enough load I guess, Core was 1470MHz this time. Is there a way to test 1440P Valley without owning a 1440P Monitor?
  14. I told you I would come back with a Titan or 980Ti, finally got rid of that 280X. Been waiting for this since September. GPU was running at constant 1507MHz btw, according to Afterburner. 78.7 ASIC Quality. Reference design EVGA card.
  15. Cores are much hotter than I would like but it seems stable. Gonna change the fans on H110 and try with a new thermal paste soon I think.
  16. Thank god I was saving up some money for the last 6 months, maybe I can get a Titan X. Funny part is that using it with an i5 will be weird. I missed this thread.

  18. Well, according to Bittech you will get between 80-120 FPS depending on your location in Skyrim. So if you use an ENB with heavy SSAO and DOF, I'm pretty sure that will drop to 60 instantly and maybe even lower, without any mods. Just an ENB. Although keep in mind that they were using 8X usual AA, you might just use 4X/2X SMAA and gain some FPS that way.
  19. Better get the Titan X, it's always much better and trouble free to have one single powerful GPU instead of 2 lesser ones. Plus it has 12GB VRAM. 4GB is just not enough for 4K, assuming that's what you were going for with SLI. 12 is kinda overkill but 4 is just not good enough for 4K. Also when you think about future, adding 3rd 980 won't really give you any noticeable performance boost and you will have more trouble with SLI and still the same low amount of VRAM, but 2 years from now, adding a second Titan X into your setup would be more than you need for 4K. That's why they decided to go w
  20. Depends on the seller, no one can safely say that it's safe or not. You might get scammed and be sad [ =( ] or be happy [ =) ] that you saved 200USD on a perfectly working GPU. Think of it this way; What will you do with your 280 when you buy a new GPU? Not gonna throw it into trash I suppose, most likely sell it, and there is a lot of people like you.
  21. The only reason you would not want to get 780Ti would be lower VRAM I suppose. If you get lucky with 780Ti too(just like you did with your godlike 770s), I'm pretty sure you can reach the top spot in single and dual GPU chart(seen Kingpin reaching 1500Mhz without a sweat). I heard that a good 980 Classified can reach 1750Core but compared to 780Ti, that would cost you a lot more.
  22. This is like selling your donkey and getting a brand new Prius, and then thinking that it's a Ferrari. Pretty similar story imo.
  23. Would be cool if I win something before the new year
  24. Find what? If you're talking about the led; http://www.overclock.net/t/1519475/gigabyte-gtx-970-led-swap
