Please go read up on the facts. Nvidia has locked this crap down. If you have the older version, good for you....that still doesn't mean every single one is going to OC great....there are Gigabytes out there that run higher than your 1359 but on STOCK voltage. Its all a toss up. You act like the MSI is superior in everything from OC to noise. It's not, especially considering every 600 series card is locked down now.

670 PE and 680 Lightning(with official LN2 Bios 3A) still have Software overvoltage from MSI AB 2.2.3. MSI gets away with it by releasing new version of MSI AB that don't allow OV but there is nothing stopping us from finding MSI AB 2.2.3 online and OV the PE/Lightning. PE's problem is that MSI had to use a smaller fan on the PE's TF IV, thus it is noiser than a Lightning TF IV.

This I understand...and have always had and I state this above as well....but randomize doesn't understand this and thinks every single MSI 670 PE is superior to every other 670....yes I understand you can find the older bios and flash it....but heck, ANYBODY can flash ANY card and void their warranty and turn up the voltage....the point I was trying to make is that NV has locked voltage down, and you're stuck with the silicon lottery....and randomize just keeps going "oh my card this, and my card that"....okay thats good for you buddy, but you missed the point completely.

They are superior in overclocking, due to the higher possible overvolt. On average, you will see higher overclocks on the PE cards, when you can boost the voltage all the way to 1.3v. I did NOT flash any BIOS, and I am running 1.294v atm!

YES, nVidia locked down the voltages, hence MSI removed this feature in AB 2.2.4, still doesn't change the fact, that this card is overvoltable beyond any other card.

Some people claim that MSI removed this from the BIOS in later versions of the card, but a simple BIOS flash should solve this.

Is Afterburner 2.2.3 where it's at? I just got a MSI 670 PE and I have no idea if I should download the latest version of Afterburner or 2.2.3?

Thanks!

Manage to get my card to:

Core Clock +135
Mem Clock +615

Pretty stable so far, ran through Heaven Benchmark about 5 times. I believe there is still more room to OC as well. Temps are good, everything is usually under 63-64 at load.

Test your OC on the games like FC3, or BF3....a lot of people have a problem when testing their OC on games....got stable on heaven, then crash on games...

Yes, you're right. It did good on Heaven but after like 10 minutes or so on FC3, artifacts everywhere. Back to the drawing board. It can't even last 3 minutes on FurMark without getting artifacts.

I would say don't worry about furmark....its really un-necessary stress that you will never see in the real world. Focus more on games like BF3 or FC3. Heck even the new Crysis 3 Beta is pretty taxing. I can't wait for retail to go live smile.gif

Heaven looping is cool because you can just setup and walk away. The problem with Heaven is, it's not really that taxing. But it does give you a "decent" idea of where your GPU stands...and its easy to overclock, and walk away while it runs

^ Yeah, I was merely testing it for temps to do the fan profiles.

Stayed up last night for a bit, ended up with these clocks:

+133 core
+550 mem core

It's stable on Furmark with out freezing and popping up artifacts, just need to get a long session in with FC3.
