Nvidia GTX Titan SLI or as @Brian says "Damn you Conkers!"

post-1291-14494994435273_thumb.jpg

So there it is, the real successor of the GTX580 chip, how much rumour was out there over the months.

Nvidia broke my resistance, I had to buy at least one card. I managed to get two of those beasts, I know the price is ridiculous but for a triple display setup it's totally worth it.

The cards are working in my Xigmatek case along with the GTX670, which is now dedicated to Physx.

At the time Intel will release Haswell processors, I'll move the cards in a smaller case with an mATX board.

My Xigmatek Elysium case is reserved for another project, which I will show to you at a later date, maybe by the end of this week or next week.

Comparison: Asus MarsII vs Asus GTX Titan vs Asus GTX670 DCII Top

@ConkersGrillforce1337 DAMN YOU CONKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) That's a sweet setup, I like the dual PSUs, I may opt for a bigger case in the future and do the same if I ever go extreme (custom WC + SLI). Always good to have a dedicated supply for the graphics, I used to do the same back in the day. Man I'd love to have a Titan but the price for one costs half as much as my system lol! I think those two titans you bought cost almost as much as my entire rig + display hahaha! I'm going to be creating some more desktop subforums to expand the scope of T|I's audience some more since you, me, @svl7, @Jimbo all have desktops now.

To do list:

1. Keep looking at picture of stacked titans.

2. Summon hatred.

3. Nurture burning coal of jealousy.

4. Fan the flames of revolution.

5. Lead horde to Switzerland.

6. Claim Titans in bloody coup.

7. :Banane48:

Now THAT is a desktop. :D

Can't wait to see more benches, builds and ideas, hope they treat you well.

Isn't it a 680M's successor?

I see a turbine type fans. Smaller than fans on other GPUs... interesting how good they are?

Congrats.

hahaha, yes the price is insane :moneygrubber:

Good work with improving/expanding the desktop part of T|I forums :congratulatory:

The fans are good or better to say the combination of vapor chamber and radial fan is a good choice :D

The disadvantage of radial fans is well known...noise increases significantly with increasing RPM :indecisiveness:

Just got my first Titan couple weeks ago and looking to pick up #2 ASAP.

One question. Do you play borderlands 2 and if so I'm finding I can't max everything out including PhysX on High and keep a solid 60fps in the high action parts, which is like most of the time. I'd like to hear your experiences with 2 Titans if you play that game of course.

@TimeLord84: Hi, cool to see somebody else with two GTX Titans on T|I :congratulatory:

I do not own Borderlands or Borderlands 2, but Metro2033, which also makes heavy demands on PhysX, I have in my Steam games library. There I can find no problems, even under high load graphics and PhysX.;)

Close enough, shipping to Gallifrey must be a bitch. ;)

As for your BL2 issues, I could swear I've seen benches of titans pulling 150+fps. I know a guy with dual titans and a dell U3011 who owns BL2, let me know what res you're running and I'll ask him to do a test.

Well I have a single Titan right now and with PhysX on High I get drops down to 25fps @ 1080p. I'm planning on a second card but shouldn't be necessary to play something like that at 1080..

Even a single 680 shouldn't drop you that low let alone a Titan. Something is up with your configuration.

Do you have any suggestions by chance? I've tried stock clocks and voltages for everything, CPU, GPU, and few other little things but yeah I'm stumped and a little pissed...

This is the first computer that I built but still a computer build is really simple and everything's running normally and my 3Dmarks are on par with similar setups too.

I'd probably pay you money for AMD hardware, but I know you'll refuse... :P

I'd take the money under the premise I'm buying AMD hardware but then claim the store was out of it and I ended up with...a SECOND TITAN!

Only problem is that there's no store which has such overpriced AMD hardware :D HAHAHA

Where are you going to be posting your benches?? I'm interested in comparisons that I can use to gauge where I'm at performance wise in games like Crysis 3, which I play Very High except Shadows and Shading on Medium and with 2X SMAA to get the best performance.. Obviously I'd love to see some comparatives in Borderlands 2 hopefully but yeah I'm definitely interested in checking out your benches and whatnot.

      I got a msi ge60 2pf Apache pro & its specs :
       
      Processor-i7 4710MQ
      Ram-16GB 
      VGA- GTX 860M 2GB Maxwell 
       
      Could anyone tell me the best overclock that I could use on this GPU?
      Please keep in mind that the voltage cannot be changed as this is a laptop
       
      Thank you
    • By ReverseEffect
      3dMark11 Performance Preset Benchmark: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/11262792
       
      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home
    • By Brentjuh2000
      Who can help me with modding and getting my 980M working?
      I replaced the M6100 that was originally in the laptop with a 980M but I can't seem to get it to work. I keep getting Code 43
      the Hardware ID : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_15CD1028
      I heard i need to modify and INF file but i have no experience with it
       
      The vBIOS is from MSI
