    Question Unable to go beyond 1400

    In this review, a picture is posted of GPU Tweak used on the STRIX 970. In the review the author is able to get the utility to give him a Boost Clock of 1460 with an offset of 207.

    Using the latest version available (2.7.1.8), which also happens to be the one used in the review, I tried to do the same but found that the slider would only allow me to go to 1400 even. Is there an extra setting I missed that will enable me to go beyond 1.4Ghz?

    Hello

    v2.7.1.8 works fine for me. Can you go past that limit using Afterburner?

    Hey ya Praz.
    I am not sure. I was hoping to stick with ASUS software to match my ASUS hardware. My OCD tends to kick my butt rather hard on such things. I suppose there is no harm in trying.

    So anyone got any ideas on what could be preventing me from going further with GPU Tweak?

    Hello

    The only thing I can suggest is fully uninstalling and then reinstalling GPU Tweak. For day-to-day use I'm not using any software to overclock the Strix. After modding the card's power, voltage, memory and fan tables I'm happy with the performance as is.

    Did you change the setting to enhanced overclocking? it should be in one of the settings tabs.

    Do you have a copy of the modded bios, I can never get out of Vrel no matter what I change. Notably 1506 ish is about the max game stable I can get at the capped voltage too.

    Hello

    I will need to get an OK for posting this BIOS. I'm not sure how it would be viewed me helping users to void their warranty.

    From the main GPU Tweak window:

    1) Click the Settings button.
    2) Click the Tune tab.
    3) Click the TuneSetting sub-tab.
    4) Check 'Overclocking range enhancement'.
    5) Click Apply.

    You should now be able to set the boost clock higher than 1400.

    Its not like I can use it on my 980 but I have found a way to get rid of Vrel, so it was just for comparison really.
