Windows 7: Going back to my old card?

Going back to my old card?

so recently i bought my gtx 780 ti. well im still having some issues with it. after installing drivers and fussing around, i decided to go back to stock. to i wiped all drivers, and reinstalled. after doing so, i began to have the same issues i was having before which is crashing. along side that, this card is a poor OCer. i can only get to 1180mhz on the core which only leads to about a 5fps increase. what im worried about is in a few years, even though the issue may have gone dormant, if it will pop up again and i wont be able to RMA the card. my last card was the asus gtx 780. this card was flawless. unfortunately, Newegg wont let me get another 780 ti because the prices have increased quite a bit from when i bought mine ~$100 otherwise i would have gotten the EVGA Classy. ideas? what should i do? even if the issue seems to be "fixed" as of now (i thought it was before aswell until i reinstalled the driver and had issues again) im worried that it will come up again and have even more issues later...

If you send it in for another 780, chances are it may be a poor OCer also. Your playing the lotto as not all cards will OC real well. I would stick with the TI.

I honestly think your best bet is to get a water cooler for your GPU, then you can push it further. Wait it out, save up for a bigger PSU, and another TI and SLI it.

its not even stable at 1180. ive tried modded bios and to increase voltage to 1.212 which is the max possible, and i could not get it stable at 1200mhz. my old 780, i got stable at 1200mhz at 1.162V. i got through a benchmark at 1300mhz at 1.212.

You do realize these cards use Boost right ?

What i am seeing is you are OCing that card high and forgetting the Boost will be even higher lol

I suggest you put a moderate 70+ Core and 300 + mem with a power setting 105 and GPU temp at 95 with them unlinked

You don't need a silly OC just to play some games just a moderate OC is good enough

Yes I know. The speeds I'm talking about are actual in game speeds. Weird tho, I yet again didisableDSR and got significantly higher clocks. In bf4 I hit 1247mhz. But in bioshock, I only hit 1200. Which is expected. My last few cards were like that too. But anyway, it was DSR that was screwing the OC. TBH, these cards are fast enough and font need to be overclocked. Mine is running at 1100mhz stock. But I'm trying to "future proof" it in a way. So when more demanding games come out in a few years, I can just clock higher. And not have an issue.

how about taking off the Heat Sink and remove all the paste and put new paste in and reinstall everything and keep it running on stock clocks

Now their is a great idea. I do agree.

Future proof is a dream we all have. I know the answer.

**Save your money so when the newest great video card come out you can buy it along with other hardware that might be needed.**

That is the only future proof that I know of.

You have to keep buying the next best silk purse.

What's the GPU-Z ASIC value tells for your card...It can tell you which of the Air cooling or water cooling could be better to have OC results.

Try to fine tune your hardware and Operating system power managements settings too.

All of that is done and thermal paste has been changed. Asic quality is 74.4%.


Eh, I'm just going to leave it. It's not worth returning and downgrading to a 780 when overclocked, meets the same performance of a stock 780ti. I'll just leave it and enjoy it. Temps are about 75c on stock. Overclockdd it hit 77c
