So......still no word on overvolt? Judging by less than 1200mhz oc in review guess not?

Not going to have it.

Even if it doesn't this will be one of the top cards due to the cooling smile.gif

Maybe. It will be hard to beat Gigabyte's $399+free shipping out of the box excellent cooling and OC. As a matter of opinion, I think the WF 670 would be a better choice.

How do you know that? MSI's product info page says it does, as does the box itself. So what are you talking about?

In other news, yet another example of why everybody should disregard Tweaktown and their crappy "reviews". They didn't even bother with overclocking lol, that and why are they still using Far Cry and Hawx to test top end cards? It's almost as bad as when TPU would test overclocking gains with CoD4 rolleyes.gif

Says what? I called MSi and they said it will support overclocking of core, memory and shaders, and that it will support voltage overclocking through software up to 1.175, which is just as the same as anything else on the market, except shaders.

I've been benchmarking mine for the past 2 hours. It's stable at 1267mhz, and a little iffy at 1280. 104mhz offset in EVGA Precision X 3.0.1 for 1124/1202/1267 Base/Boost/Kepler Boost clocks. It would seem that it has the lowest Kepler Boost of any card that I am aware of at this point, it tends towards a 5x multiplier of 13mhz, but will occasionally use a 4x.

48.4 FPS in Heaven maxed out at 1920x1080, and a 1220 score, both of which seem to be in the ballpark for an OC'd 670 on a 4.0ghz i2500K. Temps never got above 60C with the fans set to 50%, which is nice and quiet. Anything over 50% gets a bit noisy.

Max power target in Precision is 114%. Voltage is capped at 1.175, though the slider will go to 1.215. Applying 1.215 reverts to 1.175 though. Perhaps an update to Precision is needed? This is my first 670, so I'm not aware if the 1.215 on the slider is normal or not. I'll need someone else to comment on that. The other voltages cannot be adjusted. Presumably MSI Afterburner is needed to adjust these, but last I heard the voltage settings in that do not stick. Is this still the case?

Obviously this is only one data point, I'm interested to see how the others pan out. Overall I am pleased. Super stable out of the box, stable 10% OC over the stock OC, 25C cooler than my SLI 460s, way less heat being dumped out of the case, no more SLI profile wonkiness, and no more microstutter (I am amazed how smooth a single card is compared to SLI).

Any questions or suggestions on what I might do to eek out some more performance are welcome.

Why not use Afterburner to overclock and to try adjusting voltage? Precision doesn't do triple overvoltage like Afterburner does.
