MSi Lightning Overclock Need Input From Owners - Page 2

1. So whats around the OC on the core clock with volts that arent crazy high? So I can just go from there and then test for stability and downclock if its not stable.

2. Do I just increase the voltage of the Coreclock? I am new to the 3 types of voltage control.

3. Will I see improvements if I OC the memory?

Reps for inputs
1) Many lightning users generally get 900+ clock pretty easily. Install MSI Afterburner (on the cd, don't install 2.2 beta), go into settings and enable "voltage monitoring" and "voltage change". Close AB and start it again

2) For your first OC, i'd say stick to 1.1V and under. Thats roughly +100 in ab. Leave memory at 2100 until all other settings are stable, oc'ing the RAM does not make a big difference. Yes, only concern yourself with voltage of the GPU for now.

3) Start in 10 mhz increments and see what you can get. The best stability programs are furmark, and heaven dx11. Actually heaven is better....run it for about 30 minutes to test stability. If you find say, 925 stable then you can bump it up and run heaven again to test stability again. If you're not stable, you will see artifacts or flickering during the test...if that happens either up the voltage (within reason, be careful) or lower your speed.

Repeat this until you find your sweetspot. GPU clock makes the biggest difference, don't concern yourself with memory so much. +rep if helped

I like the Lighting club idea alot!!!!!
Be prepared to see a monster! I couldn't believe how huge it was when I opened the box lol.

Me too if you want you can start it, I have no idea on how to start one

Thanks man don't have time to test since I am installing BF3.

I did the Metro benchmark w/ 3 runs seems stable. Got it at (920Mhz/2100Mhz) with +112mv, will fine tune it I'll just get into BF3 and see how it runs!

BTW temps didn't even break the 69C AMAZING that's all I got to say.

Thanks for the input

ive noticed that +118mV is the sweet spot between temps and oc potential, try not to go over 75c and you will be fine

Okay since I'm completely noob at this, I have an MSi GTX580 Lightning for Core Voltage I put it at 100 (Memory and Aux Voltage I left at 0+)

Core Clock and Shader Clock are Linked so its at 900/1800 respectively, and Memory Clock is at 2100 and fan is set to Auto are these settings fine for a mild overclock of the stock settings?

Thanks

If I get approval from some of you or suggestions to bump it up a bit and see if its stable I'll make the change.

Hey buddy, you can go safely up to +150mV, even +200mV if its for a quick bench it depends on your temps, with a high ac at +150 try not to go over 75C on the core, with +200 try to stay at 67-68c max. Check what your stock VID is first

I have a 750W power supply from Corsair (AX750), I'm planning on keeping it OC'd for daily gaming like BF3 [ultra], Crysis 2 [ultra], CSS, etc and rendering videos.

Right now after pressing reset on Afterburner these are my settings:

Core Voltage (mV) : +0
Core Clock (MHz) : 832 (LINKED)
Shader Clock (MHz) : 1664 (LINKED)
Memory Clock (MHz) : 2100
Fan Speed (%) : Auto

I want a little more FPS in demanding games like BF3, Crysis, Skyrim, Witcher etc..

go into settings in msi ab and in monitoring tick gpu voltage on, run any 3d app for a few sec and check whats the max voltage, thats your stock vid. Im just after running BF3 ultra at 832 and then at 970, difference was 7-8 fps

It says my Min is 0.956 and Max is 1.006

great thats a really nice vid on the same one i can do 1000k at +70mv try setting +132mv and 1000 on the core, fan to 100% and run 3d11
post #20 of 37


well this isn't good, i set those settings and well i ran a DX11 Kombustor test, it crashed the fan automatically stopped and went back down to low settings.

So any other settings? :[
