This is the information I was looking for. Thank you very much.

Glad to help:thumb:

Just FYI I am selling my Lightning for Kepler SLI whe it comes out so I will have a little financial boost ..even though it will probably cost triple^^

Can´t wait for the new technology:)
I am sure it will be a bomb

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us this lists all the official drivers for the card. Search.

There is no way I am disconnecting something based on just you saying it.

So no offense Kung Pow but disconnecting the "polewitch" is not going to happen unless it comes from MSI Alex as being ok or a ton of other people as having done it with no consequences.

Thus, there's some chance in this scenario that raising voltage would accomplish increasing the stability, and cause performance to increase rather than decrease from the higher clocks ... although it's not a guarantee, because at some point in the continuum, the benefit of adding volts disappears.

No, that would describe non-manufacturers, like evga.

Manufacturers, like MSi, buy chips from nVidia, then they design and build custom PCB's, and then they assemble the cards using their custom PCB's. They didn't build ALL the cards that their name is on, mind you, but some of them they did, like the Lightning.

Howdy, Partner!

Reading a shipping label, are we? I'm guessing you've received these chips! CONFIRMED! Starting a new thread now in the NEWS section!!

You do know that MSI also sells reference cards right?
What you are describing is the process of a non reference card like for example the Lightning.
Of course for those cards they develop their own pcb and therefor own cooler.

But for normal reference cards MSI too just buys the chip on the reference PCB and just puts a cooler on top ?
I do even think they can buy a the static black plastic ref plastic shroud + fan in it and backplate and just put their company stickers/coloring on it

Every manufacturer is free to do anything with the chips/pcb´s they buy from Nvidia as long as it is not exceeding their boundries but I am sure that will be insured legally

Ergo, MSI is a manufacturer just like EVGA, ASUS , Plait etc etc they are basically all they same ...some even have alliances and create marketing strategies together in order to boost each others sales

EVGA does not manufacture anything in-house... When the reference PCBs run out from Nvidia, MSI copies them and builds them their-selves later in the product lifetime(see my sig on ref manufact). MSI owns the entire process from manufacturing to delivery and has over 25 years of history doing it.

EVGA is just a reseller. Just like the watercooling kits on their hydrocopper cards which are made by Swiftech. EVGA manufactures nothing.

Sigh. If only EVGA would sell anything in China...
