Dang, windforce is still stuttering and its running about half the speed it should run. this is too bad cause the ln2 bios flashed to without any problems. guess i will revert back.

Haha my bad forgot you are a wanderer of this thread like me. Us non Lightning folk need to stick together.

The Lightning's are the cards that do all the spooling. Caught me by surprise at first then I remembered my buddy's does that and was like oh yea.

That's really lame. Must be very strictly hardware limited.

I did that and can confirm that it does allow my cards to run x16 3.0 / x16 3.0 just fine. Haven't had any problems. Had to do it manually (via my link in this post) since the auto .exe file wouldn't work for some reason. Running stock-for-stock SLI (for least amount of variables introduced) I did a 2.0 vs 3.0, changing nothing else, and scored about 100 points higher on GPU Score, so, within margin-of-error I believe. Not sure if it will help for high overclocks in SLI, but 3 and 4-way SLI will see a big improvement:

+Rep to xoleras, tooshort, and jona for the NVFlash help thumb.gif Showing unlocked in both cards. Quick test with the crappy one that was sent as a replacement, and had the new BIOS, seems promising. Before shutting down to put the second card back in, crappy one was stable at only 1250mhz, then with 2.2.3 it was stable at 1300mhz, and after the flash it did 1320mhz fine. Doing an SLI run now (P20,000...here I come gunner2.gif)

Appreciate the rep btw thank you a bunch.

Yeah, thats what I think.

The Aux voltage is PLL voltage and just can maybe give you a better chance at max effort stability. As far as memory voltage, I've been using it since before it was an option for afterburner and have noted through my Galaxy and two Lightnings that even with maxed out memory overvoltage the memory just runs out of breath at 7200, which can be done on stock voltage. I made a run at 7250 and it was instant crash. 7200 had artifacts even at max memory voltage, still does with 2.2.3
with my custom fan profile +20mV took me to 66C on the core with the fan only ramping up to 67%
with the fan set at 100% (excessive) +20mV took me to 61C on the core.
I will try to take the voltage/core higher when i get home from work today.. but i honestly can't imagine i'm going to get much more out of the N670 PE.

and thanks for the info on the Aux voltage.

I wish you much luck for sure as that was my hopes when I first got the card and heard promise of voltage in general. I lucked out and crested my goal of 12K P score with a 2600K and one card so I am extremely satisfied right now. What's your next plan of action?

Don't doubt yourself my friend. I think you should squeeze a decent little bit more out of it. Good luck and let us all know what happens.

I might just hold onto the gigabyte, it breaks the 1300mhz core barrier already and does 600+mem. Dont know if you remember me or not but I had the Galaxy SOC a while back myself, had to return it to the egg though because of some issues with the fan going whacko on me. lol.

Does your slider also drop to 93 when you apply it at 100?
