Cant adjust voltage on MSI gtx 560 ti 448 core.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
im using MSI afterburner 2.2.0 beta 10
with driver 285.66


it seems that i can change anything else on it expect voltage. on every monitoring program its reading the default 1.0v stock speed.
but my afterburner says its going at 1.1v or w/e i put it as.

i know its running at 1.0v because i become unstable with higher speeds even if i set the afterburner to 1.1v. i should be able to get 950mhz at least but im not.


temps stay below 50C.

im using latest GPUZ/CPUID hardware monitor/ furmark/ HWINFO and they all say im running at 1.0v.

have you enabled voltage tweaking in the afterburner settings?

You can only do it in the beta version. You go to settings and tick "Unlock Voltage Control" and "Unlock Voltage Monitoring."

Two things...first don't worry about the GPU-Z score showing your lower Pixel Fillrate. Your not the only one. Here is a thread I started that found the same bug. The previous version 0.5.6 will show the correct specs. Don't be concerned it will be fixed I'm sure by next release 0.5.8 I bet.

GPU-Z 0.5.7 Displaying wrong specs for Pixel Fillrate

Second do you have any other GPU monitoring software running in back ground? IF two are running at the same time it conflicts and can keep you from uping voltage.

Other note, if changing too small of increments it will revert back down. Are you clicking 'save' instead of 'reset'?

Last check point, have you changed the Seek UnofficialOverclockingEULA field and add following text: that says "I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it.

1. Set UnofficialOverclockingMode to 1 to keep PowerPlay active (may not work on old ASICs)
2. To traditionally disable PowerPlay or to 0 to temporary disable unofficial overclocking path.

Found C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner in the cfg file.

Side note...have you updated your BIOS ever on your Gigabyte card?

Found this on HardOCP regarding unability to set voltage. It's pretty detailed might want to take a read if your still having issues. Click here.

Good luck and let us know if any of these worked.

PS. Sorry if I hit some obvious things you've already tried. Never know, mom told me her TV didn't work, got to the house and it was unplugged when she did the vaccuming. tongue.gif Sometimes it's the simple things over looked.

Hey bud, See your home giving it a go.

For me this is new territory. Try it out and see if that works. It's going to be trial and error if this is the fix. I've never had the voltage issue like your having.

Keep us posted. Someone is bound to read the thread who's dealt with this very issue and comment.
