It's like buying a car that is supposed to be brand new, 200hp but due to some unknown reason it's less than that. Stuff happens in manufacturing.
Some people (despite what OCN'ers think - there are people who don't know much about computers) purchase pre-overclocked cards for the fact that they either don't know how, don't want to risk it, or just want more performance out of the box than trying to hassle with it themselves.

While I'm not trying to burn MSI to the ground, you have to admit (or you may not be allowed to?) that this was a mistake on MSI's part and the customer should not have to flash a new BIOS to the card or have to wait for an RMA.

If they're at 832GHz, benchmark the Hell out of that card before it burns your house down.

Perhaps innocently, this costumer has kinda been ripped off, no?
They don't sell the Lightning for it's baby overclock. They sell it for the ridiculous components that go into it. The price merely justifies the overclocking and cooling abilities.

It's unfortunate that you got a gimped BIOS but by no means did you get a gimped card.

Yes it's a mistake. You move on.

I already pointed out the resolutions: we provide BIOS, you flash, done.

Or RMA.

The whole point of a warranty is a safeguard against defects in product. If it can be fixed with a simple BIOS flash, we'd go that route if customer insists on not having down time.

I'll trade you my DCUII and PNY 580, they are higher than that out of the box

Make sure you configured your dip switch for the bios. My card out of the box was also at 772mhz, but after flipping the dip switch it booted fine at the advertised default overclock.

Download NiBiTor.
Download NVFlash.
Edit Default Bios to Lightning speed.
Flash card in windows
Profit????

Hmm, no i didnt flip any switches. I honestly didnt even check :/

Just to clarify, im not angry. Im just not well versed in this GPU overclocking and was confused at the clock discrepancy.

Thank you all for your posts. Im definitely learning a lot here.

All in all, I just ran a 30 minute 3dmark11 loop with these numbers, so im happy



I had to go core +162 mV for those numbers and after 30 minutes, the card "max" temp was 85c. The 2nd card max temp was 79c.

Is that too high for a GPU? Am I burning this thing out with these temps?

Well, they are getting up there, you may want to look at upping your fan speed.

No one is going to run a lightning at stock speed anyway, even 830 is too slow for this card
