basically were all screwed

can someone please figure out a VR mod for this card so we can actually bench the dang thing!?!?!?!?

I'm sure msi themselves will get the mod to its pro clockers soon.
BTW
did you even test for cb cbb yet?

Yeah, the guru3d article is really depressing. Even with the old BIOS, voltage adjustment desn't seem like the old days...EVGA Jacob was right, sadly. If Nvidia does this again with GK110, I'm jumping ship to AMD.
Quote:
That means that only the first batch of 5000 cards will have an OLD Bios that is freed up from the limitation and thus allows voltage tweaking to a certain extent. We can only assume that the old BIOS will spread like a virus to current Lightning owners to give them a little more flexibility on voltage tweaking matters.

We understand NVIDIA's point of view on this, really .. extreme voltage tweaking can damage GPUs, and in the end these are returned to NVIDIA. Next to that the complexity of this new methodology is extensive and to a certain extent even unreliable. For NVIDIA it thus is matter of RMA and cost.

The flipside of the coin however is that when imposing such limitation on the high-end GPUs it pretty much kills off the fun for many of you. Extreme performance and tweaks drive the overclocking community and in the end drive the sales of the complete product line.

We do hope this point of view will change in the future allowing the AIC partners more flexibility. But for now you guys will have to face the fact that NVIDIA's 1.175V limitation is a solid fact. But sure, this news is a little bitter.

yeah i hope so..

in other news.. my multimeter is reading out a max core voltage of 1.349 now, even though afterburner is the same +100mv

..and ive already pushed the core to 1360mhz (and still going up), when before my max core was 1320

well sir you are getting there its adding +100mv so your ln2 bios 1..24+.10= 1.34 there you go i knew it had to work since XBEATX is upwards to 1440 boost clock on his run thumb.gif.
