no, maxing the voltage slider on stock bios does nothing unless you need 7/24 fix voltage and its up to 1.150 or 1.175.. but when you mod the bios with voltage unlock you get 1.21 V and card boost it when it needs or you just fix the voltage to 1.21 in voltage slider.

note: voltage slider only sets the min votlage not the max voltage.

Oh ok. What I actually want to ask is what you mentioned in your last sentence that if you mod the BIOS to 1.212V then would the slider be of any use if it is maxed out? I hope someone can confirm this.

I don't *think* it will.

^^ I don't see any difference.

Take AB Beta 6 for example. that is broken on it (as in, you cannot put volts up) - it still behaves exactly the same way with volts in games.

Just flashed the straight KGB unlock BIOS and the voltage slider doesn't appear to do anything any longer. It sticks at 1.21V no matter what the slider is (even if I put it all the way down). I kind of wish I could use it to lower it actually, not sure I want the full 1.21V all the time under load. The flash was easy though and boosted my overclock, so far, from 1280 to 1333 - still pushing, although it crashed earlier at 1359 so I might be close.

Thanks for the confirmation. You can do, however, make your BIOS mod not stay at the full 1.21V all the time under load. Try to set the voltage to 1.1875V, it will still ramp up to 1.21V if needed. Not sure which between 1.875V or 1.212V is better though.

First of all: Thank you very very much for this guide! With your help I was able to overclock my GPU for the first time. And I'm a total newbie to OC!

But I have a question... Since I've overclocked my GPU, the GPU clock is at a constant 1202 MHz (without OC it should be at 980) and the temperature is about 47°C all the time. Even right after starting my PC with the default Precision-X settings and without any processes running I have a permanently high GPU clock and temperature.

This can't be very healthy for my card, can't it? And how can I fix this?

When I was initially doing the OC with Heaven and running FurMark etc., this wasn't the case. The GPU clock and temperature immediately dropped after I closed the programs. I can't tell when this thing started, I just noticed it after playing for a while.

Thank you very much for your help!

PS: I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but as I told you, I'm a total newbie ;-)

Great guide. Got 10k + 3dmark11 graphics score following it... still working on memory/CPU overclocks.

Very detailed, follow the long method, it's worth it!
