I do. Just installed them 2 days ago when I got the card.

Does the MSI APS utility work for everyone else?

I'm having the exact same problem with the exact same card. That application is saying "Unknown Graphics Card!". Any solution? These LED's are very bright :/

There is something I have always been wondering about:


At 03:10 a lot of switches are shown...for overclocking you normally only use Vcore ...will those switches be able to stabilize or even help to reach a higher overclock?
Or is it wise to leave them alone if not on LN2 or Phase?

I was able to get the MSI APS software working. Make sure you are not using the beta version of Afterburner. Once I installed the non beta the APS program starting working, granted the software is junk.

MSI really needs to work on their software a bit more. You can have the APS software start with Windows but it never remembers your settings on reboot, so every time you restart you have to turn it back on and hit apply. Not a big deal but just annoying.

Those switches are mostly there for subzero setups.

If you are really curious why not just flip one of the switches, hook up a multimeter and see what the voltages change to.

Here's what they do specifically:

- Memory and GPU voltage (how much it changes I don't know)
- PWM ClockTuner, lets you select PWM clock frequency from 260mhz to 310mhz
- A switch to increase PLL voltage (no idea how much)
- A switch to remove the overcurrent protection of the card

If you are not running MSI APS then what you wrote is normal. If you are running the MSI APS software then you should have around 4 green lights and no red when just sitting at the desktop, at least thats what I see.

So if I don't care about the power saving function, 6 red/6 green is utilizing all phases?

I just uninstalled Afterburner Beta, and it still said Unknown Graphics Card. Tried installing a non-beta Afterburner, and MSI APS still gives me the same error. confused.gif
