Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go

 

With MSI having a factory overclock on its GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G, I didn't expect to squeeze much more out of the card, but I did. I was able to drive the Boost Clock from 1279MHz on the OC Mode to 1299MHz.

Power Consumption

 

The reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti consumes a very respectable 360W of power, with the overclocked and faster MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G not using any more power than that. Even when it was overclocked, the MSI card was only using 390W of power.

Sound Testing

 

For all of our testing, the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G didn't make a sound, and that's how we enjoy our cards lately. Of course for our testing we cranked the fans up manually to both 50% and 100%, but gaming at all resolutions the card is silent.
