Calling all gtx 460/hawk users!! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Revert to stock settings first, run Kombuster and check the voltage on the screen. Thats your VID that comes stock @ those frequencies. Mine is 1.037, it can do 840 with no voltage adjustments. +100 i can do 940.
338


Now you have 2 ways to further increase voltages. Since HAWK is non-reference and allows for higher vgpus, but its software locked, you can use a modified afterburner that allows volts up to 1.5(never use it). Or simplest way is to use a program that doesnt conflict with AB, thu raising your voltage with it, and using +100 on AB.

Use nvidia inspector, raise the volts to 1.087, then slowly raise +20 values or +10 values on AB, on air never go above 1.2 (even this is just to see what clocks you can hit and not 24/7).

OCN and myself are not responsible for any damages your card gets. You have been warned, happy ocing smile.gif.

Put the memory and pll sliders all the way and it's been rock solid since. If you really wana see what you can get, google gtx hawk on overclock.uk and a guy tells you have to edit the afterburner ini. or config file to bypass the msi voltage chip and start using the onboard nvidia one. You just add a line of code to the file. You do this after maxing the slider to +100mv. Then after putting the code in, it goes back to the way the voltage looks with most cards and let's you stack 1.087 with +100mv = 1.187v.
I was benchmarknstable at 960mhz. Just didn't fancy frying my card so i don't run that speed.

can u pls link me to the ini edit to make my voltages appear normal like in most cards....

You cant :S, the hawk displays +xxx mv, but doesn't tell you how much your voltage is now.

When you add this line of code to the afterburner config it does......................

ill have a look, used to have it saved but not anymore ill only be a min.

For those of you who didn't know, this gpu has 1 voltage regulator and the default nvidia circuit regulator. Since MSI Afterburner limited the custom voltage chip to +100 mV, depending on how good your temps were, you may have been restricted from a bigger OC. In the MSI Hawk GTX 460 review on this website, it shows the reviewer OC'ing the custom voltage chip by +100 mV, uninstalling Ab 2.0, installing Ab 1.6 and OC'ing the gpu further until 1.087 V (<- this is the nvidia circuit chip). But then, he couldn't OC the memory since 1.6 didn't support it.

Now here's how you do it properly:

1) Open Afterburner, select your OC profile applied with +100 mV and apply it.
2) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\Profiles
3) Open the VEN_10DE&DEV_XXXXXXXXX.cfg file and add these lines at the bottom:

[Settings]
VDDC_Generic_Detection = 1
VDDC_uP6262_Detection = 0

4) Save.
5) Open Afterburner, you should now be able to see the slider that allows you to go up to 1.087 V. Moving it all the way to 1.087 V will stack with +100 mV. At the same time, you are also able to overvolt memory because it is still the same version.

To be able to go back, just remove those 3 lines, save and open AB again, you'll be able to see the +100 mV slider.

Enjoy
