  1. I really appreciate the comments and numbers, thankyou I have more to try! I'm not used to being so far off the mark, especially as the sticks have done better MHz previously and there's no reason for them to be degrading.
  2. Thanks In terms of volts, is that ~1.25/1.05/ 1.1v?
  3. On the subject of PSC.... how much variation is there in Haswell IMC? None of my PSC does anything good- tested on MSI, Gigabyte and Asus, but I wonder if im a bit rusty or being too soft with vSA and vI/O
  4. Aurosonic.... this iso works really really well for me, thankyou VERY much for putting the work into it and posting it
  5. I've been Googling and I can't see anything that has this layout. There are extra mounting holes in the middle of each RAM section. The layout of the memory areas makes me think RTX2080Ti... one of the thermal pads for the memory is untouched, which backs up that idea. The PWM pad at the front has an untouched area, so partial population there. Any ideas? Thanks
  6. (narrative) This card has threads all over the net about its inability to work at factory Boost speeds....or even factory base clock. Apparently the first batch are the worst and they can be identified by the lack of backplate. I picked up one of these and got stuck into figuring out why they suck (sorry, eVGA) A lot of comments online pointed towards the HDMI firmware and i'm certain that a % of people fixed their problem using the HDMI firmware patch from nVidia. The MHz issues are real, though. Online comments talking about hacking the MHz away until the card is running
  7. I got around this by using a different version of nVFlash.
  8. Hello all! I have encountered this lovely message for the first time. In-Windows attempts have been done with the card (GTX980) disabled in device manager. I've tried nVFlash 5287 (certificate bypass) and 5.59 board ID mismatch patch. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get around this?
  9. Thankyou for the input on this I wasn't looking at the card correctly because I don't (yet?) have the experience with newer PWMs. Made some progress, but the card has had an awful life. It's currently not an 8-phase PWM, put it that way!
  10. Hello all I have a GPU problem that i'm running short on ideas on how to solve. It's an MSI GTX980 Gaming edition card, picked up faulty on eBay. It briefly worked, but a shunt resistor fried under load. (Panasonic ERJ-M1WSF5M0U) i've replaced it twice, but insta-fry upon power up. Could there be damage to the current detection IC that the shunt is connected to? They are V3505's if i'm looking at this correctly... I don't know much about them and as of yet, I can't find spares. I can find replacements for the shunt resistor and I've thought about buying hig
  11. Not many people will care now, but this card was released with a vCore of ~1.55v and a fairly simple aluminium cooler. No prizes for guessing how that combination worked! Here's a VID mod to reduce the vCore for day-to-day use.
  12. Asus BIOS are for Asus cards ....but i'm glad your card is working again!
  13. Clearing the CMOS won't help Did you save a copy of the original MSI BIOS?
  14. *sigh* Please can a mod delete this result? I swear, I picked the 3DMark Vantage box for the submission. https://hwbot.org/submission/4510084_ Also... it took MINUTES to enter all the info for this.....any timescale on when the main site will be responsive enough to.....errr.....use?
  15. Thanks for the replies Mr. Scott, Is there a link to generic/universal competiton rules? I know that most have unique ones too Hey Alby! Are you looking after yourself? Family is all good here! Catchup on Skype soon?
