This with 1185mV.
Now that I have my second card which is a 69,4%, I probly need to use 1,2V for 1150/1500 tongue.gif
Anyone know about a GPU stress test that will actually stress both cards?
I tryed GPUtool and OCCT, but they wont stress both of them..

I found Crysis Warhead and Crysis 2 to max the card more than unigine or 3DMark 11, surprisingly enough.

Ok so I did the following:

1. Uninstall drivers
2. Used Driver Sweeper
3. Uninstalled card from Device Manager
4. Uninstalled MSI Afterburner
5. Deleted MSI Afterburner install folder.
6. Rebooted
7. Installed driver
8. Rebooted
9. Installed MSI Afterburner Beta 11
10. VID now shows 1.12 at default instead of 1.75

Card still artifacts in 3dmark 2011 right away even at 1125 on the core.

Asic quality is 74.5%

Idle temps dropped a little to 56c, down from 66c before driver install.

I am also getting Eyefinity weirdness. Monitor drop outs and 1 monitor is showing as a Generic non-pnp device and only maxing out at 1600x1200 resolution. It should do 1920x1200 like the other 2 identical monitors.

Debating on wether I should RMA the card or not.

That same eyefinity issue happened to me in the beginning.. it was a driver issue. I ended up using Atiman after un-installing ccc from control panel. Then driver sweeper last. Eyefinity works great now.

I initally had a similar driver problem. Artifacts on stock clocks. I uninstalled msi afterburner. Downloaded new driver package, instead of installing I went through the steps in the install package and uninstalled everything. Reboot, reopened the package I just downloaded and installed. Reboot and worked fine from there.

This is Official overclocking, within TDP limits.
Unofficial overclocking, hence the name is unofficial and goes over the TDP and can damage the card, so it is not covered by warranty.
Increasing the voltage of cards is not allowed with official overclocking, to keep within the TDP limits.
If you overvolt with AB or trixx, powertune is irrelevant.
Not only are you wrong, you are spreading bad advice to other forum members, which is unacceptable.

He's technically right, powertune in and of itself doesn't raise TDP. It raises the point at which it will throttling thr card. But since you still don't understand the tech, you just post the marketing ad.
