Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go

 

We were able to reach 1322MHz on our Boost clock on the Gainward GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS', which provided a little wiggle room when it came to our overclocking results. Does the OC help, though? Take a look at our results below.

Power Consumption

 

When it comes to power consumption, I expected the Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' to come close to the other GTX 980 Ti cards that we've tested, and lo and behold it did, we have power consumption of around 390W for our full system when using Heaven.

Sound Testing

 

During our game testing and most of our benchmarking, the Gainward GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' was silent. It was only during our sound testing where we manually cranked the fans to 50% and 100% that the card was making any noise.
