4 out of 5 eggs Great OC'd, Quiet, Low Temps 01/20/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB WINDFORCE 3X OC EDITION

Pros: Ultra-quiet fans on load, great OC’d (1503 boost), Temps not above 70c on load running FireStrike Extreme 1.1 @ 2560X1600 which scored 8454 (GPU score 9204) / compared to a GTX 780ti GV-N78TGHZ-3GD it replaced which scored before taking it out 5599 (GPU score 5896). The Guru-2 OC software Gigabyte offers is decent and showed the elements as accurate as MSI AB. I am sticking with MSI AB though. Why four stars instead of five, see cons. This model needs a serious GPU BIOS Update which currently doesn’t exist. They do have a very nice GPU Bios Utility and I am looking forward to using it when Gigabyte addresses the issue in Cons.

Cons: I ran into the same issue others have with the GPU not wanting to wake up the LCD, thus it booted with a black screen, no Bios screen, no splash screen, no windows screen with my HP ZR30w using a 10ft DVI-D cable which worked perfectly fine with the GTX 780ti GV-N78TGHZ-3GD for over a year. I tried my other PCIe 16bit slot on my MB with same bad results. I tried a 10ft DP cable and got a blinking screen issue. I then went to a 7ft DP cable and it worked just fine. I tried the 10ft DVI-D cable with an Asus 24” VW266H and it worked fine. I could duplicate the screen not being powered on by turning off the PC for an hour. I tested both the 7ft DP with the HP ZR30w and 10ft DVI-D with the Asus VW266H by keeping it powered off overnight and they both passed. For immediate results fixing the black screen issue, I had to power off the PC, physically unplug the power button on the PC and press the power button to discharge the MB. Plug power cable back in and it would boot fine. Over course, that is unacceptable for a regular routine. Finding the right cable and LCD was a trying procedure to get right.

My card box was not shrink wrapped and may have been an open box. All the protective film was on the shroud of the card though, which I took off.

Other Thoughts: ASIC on this card is 72.8 which I don’t have confidence to mean much with nVidia Cards. NVidia driver used was 361.43. BIOS on MB is the latest. CPU not OC’d, System RAM set at XMP speed.

Corsair 500R Case, H110 Hydro, 1200AX PSU, Asus Maximus Hero VI MB, Intel 4770K CPU, Gigabyte GPU GV-N98TWF3OC-6GD, G-Skill Trident 2400MHz 32GB, Crucial M500 960GB SSD, Seagate 2TB HDD x2, Creative SBZ to Denon AVR-4311ci - Infinity Primus 5.1 w/Klipsch Sub XW-300d, HP ZR30w 30" S-IPS LCD, W10 64bit

The Rise of the Tomb Raider game code came with a nVidia code via the email you use with Newegg, NVidia streamlines the game into Steam from there. NVidia does not give you a code to manually put into Steam anymore. This may affect people that desire to sell the code, as the process is tide to your email, but I dunno because I wanted the game anyways.
