Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go
With EVGA already clocking up its GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+, we didn't expect to be able to push the card much higher... but we were wrong. With some tame overclocks applied, we were able to reach 1356MHz on the Boost Clock, and 7204MHz on the RAM.
This provided a nice increase in performance, and with the performance on the card already offering around 10% more than the reference GTX 980 Ti, the added performance is nothing but gravy. When it comes to the performance benefit, we have some great results to share.

As we expected, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ consumes just a little more power than the reference GTX 980 Ti.
With the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti in our system, we're looking at 360W of power consumption, while the overclocked EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ bumps that up by 20W to 380W total.
For all of our testing, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ was silent. The only time we heard the card was during our sound testing when we manually increased the fan speed to 100%.
