Well I'll start with the good news, my GTX 980 is not broke, problem was it was only folding at 405MHZ, I thought part of it got burned out or something like that. Turned out to be corrupted drivers, I some times have power outages and I think the video drivers got mangled. So I on a whim I re-installed the drivers and all is good.
Now for the bad new, Don, I'll pass you sooner now and Jr, say goodby to my name on your conquest list :rofl:

You got lucky that it's just the drivers! I had similar symptoms with an eVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti and it was because of a wrong video BIOS. It would be at clocks like that in Heaven!
(The buddy who gave it to me flashed an Asus BIOS to it!) (TechPowerUp to the rescue!)
