Im so sad i can't seem to break that limit :'(, might try to flash one of the alternative BIOS' today, to see if that allows me to go higher, or even edit the voltage in the BIOS, even though that shouldn't be an issue on the Power Edition

Have you tried setting a more aggressive (and unfortunately louder) fan profile in Afterburner?

I'm only clocked at 1254, but I've managed to keep my temperatures at 71 and below and keep the throttling more or less under control (one of my two cards never does, the other bounches a bit in Heaven runs).

Im running my fans @80% while i test it. When i am satisfied with my overclock, i will find a more balanced fan profile. I am no where near the 69C mark, where the GPU starts throttleing, i am pretty much convinced that my throttleing occours as a result of my card refusing to go above 103% TDP :'(

What do you use to measure TDP?

Power Limit in Afterburner? However, i am satisfied with my overclock, it did get me a nice fps boost in BF3 (my game of choice btw, the only reason i went nVidia and not AMD). I just do not like giving up!

I think I got the two worst clocking 670s in history. The power edition is even crappier than the windforce I had. Good thing I got a pe to be stuck at 1.175, even though the box says otherwise. I wonder if I can get a refund and get a 680 lightning instead.

Do you know for sure that the voldtage is stuck at 1.175? For me it doesn't show a higher voltage, although I know it is higher

Instead of raising the max power limit, i just set the default power limit a bit higher (to what corresponds to the default 114 limit). My power limit now tops at 80%, and i am now in progress of pushing the overclock even further! although, it seems to not like going above 1333Mhz :S
Mine isn't unlocked though. In both afterburner and precision the max is always 1.175.

Yup the max voltage for MSI PE is 1.175 Volt.

Hmm, seems odd to me :S

I am able to reach a higher overclock, when i raise the voltage, although the reading stays at 1.175? :O dunno, my card is weird in a few other aspects anyways :S
