Really? Because my overclock has gone from +70 to +150 with the F8 Bios (Admittedly I did, at the same time, move the card to a different PCIE slot and upped my VTT voltage).
The hard crash is really annoying, tempted to revert back to the 3A bios if your comments are fact. Will have to do some more testing thumb.gif

3A has worked for me. Granted I don't have a lightning. It did eliminate the hard crash. Only issues I've found which might be specific to not having a Lightning is that I'll get a full card crash blue screen if I try to put the voltage to max on occasion especially right after benching. Another note is that I can get the full range of +93 mv (what it reverts too despite going to 100) when I use anything but 3dmark 11 which drops me down to +55-60 so I'm losing clocks because of it. When I get home from work I will be doing heaven finally. I'm shooting for 1400.

its been posted in the OP for over 24 hours .. way ahead of you, mates thumb.gif (i thought i even made a post about the update... heh)

TO ALL: I have posted a copy of the 3A bios (courtesy of killbuzzjrad) in the OP over 24 hours ago, along with my personal analysis of what it is. While we know it is not a locked BIOS like we've been expecting, I do fully expect to see a BIOS version that is locked. I think this is merely a different revision. Like someone else said, the "locked" ones arent confirmed as having shipped/sold yet. However, we will keep our eyes peeled and update everyone as soon as we get some more information. Us Lightning owners, we're all in this voltage battle together so if you have or find some valuable info about any of this, shoot me a PM so we can get it up in the OP for the whole crowd to see thumb.gif

Ok , just got my Lightning and it's using the new BIOS, but it's not supposed to lock me out on the voltage right? I've tried re-installing the drivers and AB, but still no luck. What could be wrong?

prolly stupid question, but did you check/enable voltage control in AB settings?
