What's it current V atm? And is it on air or wc? Don't push it too far, you might kill it if you can't control the temp.

After burner is not letting you increase the voltage? Check the settings if you can force voltage control first...

What version is your Vapor-X? If I recall, only a few Rev1 Vapor-X had voltage control. I know the 2nd revision for sure did not have voltage control. That may be your problem right there. Your card just doesn't physically have the hardware to control voltage.
