    Hey all, I'm probably going to get an MSI 980 Ti Gaming 6G card when it is available and was wondering about how the clock speeds come out of the box.

    There are three modes : Silent, Gaming and OC. I believe this works the same as the 980 4G. You download the MSI Gaming app and this allows you to switch between the three. If I just install the card and use it which setting will it be on?. Does it start with the highest clocks? Out of the box. (which is the one I will want it on).

    If any 4G owners have the answer that would be great.

    Lee

    I think this would get better results if posted in the MSI partner section

    You could always Google the card and look at the specs on the MSI site... ;)

    That's a good point. It never even crossed my mind to post it there. I'll see if it can be moved.

    Ah yes MrMad I know the different speeds. What I want to know is if I stick the card in straight from the box which speed mode does it set to straight away. If it's already at the OC setting then I won't bother downloading the software.

    All you'd need to do is download GPUZ to find out.

    What difference does it make? Being super, uber lazy or something?

    Just installed the app on my pc. (didn't even know it existed)

    Fired it up and it was default set to silent on my 970 4g.

    Ah thx Crapbag. They really should say in the instruction manuals that come in tbe box especially as lots of people are purchasing for the overclock.

    Rather interestingly I have just fired up BF4 and I have Afterburner which displays info on my lcd on my keyboard and without the app running my 970 is running at 1342mhz which is faster than the advertised boost overclock setting.

    I have no other overclocks running, not touched any overclocking in afterburner. Looks like the card automatically runs overclocked without the app and faster than it should be at, memory is running at the stated overclock speed though.

    I think depending on the GPU temp etc the chip can go up 1 or 2 extra bins with excellent cooling over what is stated as it's max overclock.. I think I read that is how the 980 Ti nearly equals the performance of the Titan X at stock frequencies.

    I believe for the GAMING series, it's default mode is the Gaming clock speeds.

    Ah thank you MSIRawZ. If I set the card to OC mode I presume it stays in that mode unless I switch back?. Does it require a reboot to switch modes? (I think I read that somewhere about the 980 4G)

    Ps any idea when the 980 ti 6G will be available to purchase?

    Thanks, Lee

    The 980 Ti should be available shortly. :)

    The mode should remain set unless it is set to do something else on reboot. I *think* that you can set it to apply the profile on boot, but someone else will have to confirm that for me. I'm basing my assumptions on most other GPU overclocking software.
