[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 171

post #1701 of 7827
Hi guys, been reading the thread since post 1. Tomorrow I'm mounting my lightining, hope to get 1350's on air.

Regarding BIOS I've one doubt, should I flash to 3A to get the best out of it or keep F8? Btw, on MSi Germany theres a "v1.1" Bios update to download => http://www.msi-computer.de/product/vga/N680GTX-Lightning.html#/?div=Firmware

What it confuses me is that this ones are labeled internaly as F7/F8 respectively, but don't match CRC with the ones we've been seing as F7/F8 till now.

Hope to keep learning from you.

Kind Regards!

Okay, 1377mhz seems to be my limit on my Lightning, I'm definitely ok with that. The max temps were 74c and +400 on the mem is also nice. Just to confirm: http://i50.tinypic.com/2hwmi69.jpg

What do you do once you get MSI Afterburner in the drop-down menu?? I can't do a Search. And if I go to Edit then Edit Selected, I make the text boxes look just like yours in the pic and then I click OK but nothing happens

thank you for this! works perfectly biggrin.gif
I think you can use the same method for other voltages ... right?

Someone should test this with a voltmeter, perhaps someone not afraid of going up to 1.4V or higher? Because i'm not crazy and don't plan to (because i'm on air)
Voltmeter is the only way to verify....

unfortunately I think lurkers would take advantage of this knowledge and then somehow screw up if they're inexperienced. I'm worried that if MSI starts getting too many fried cards they might actually stop giving out/implementing voltage contorl or using some sort of BIOS check on new lightning cards to use the "Nvidia approved" locked bios and not let use flash the unlocked BIOS.

I think someone should open up a google page/doc and put a password on it so that only us OCN members can access it.

1.4v+ on a 28nm chip sounds a bit crazy for you guys? Wonder how long before the chip degrades before it'll start require more and more votlage for it to run at whatever clocks you're running it on......

what do the mods think? if you want i can edit and remove the instructions... but i suspect its not so much of a "chips easily get fried" issue, rather than a "lets make sure theyre not so powerful so we can sit back and relax for the next generation" issue. after all, we know that the GTX 680 is basically a repackaged 660, it fits what one can expect from their mentality atm.

this is an overclocking site.. if some people cant handle it or will cry like girls when they fry their cards, they need not be in here or attempt these things.. sorry but im just being real about it.

EDIT: If every person who is trying this out to get more voltage doesnt +REP shamefulanomaly at least once, it would be a crime

You're talking about voltages that far exceed what any sane air cooling person could run 24/7. I think there are lurkers that would take this information and hurt their card with it, thats my opinion though....The fact that people are even trying this on air is pretty insane....

If you're into HWBot and extreme overclocking, sure its great, but for the average user (like myself) who uses a PC for gaming, not so much.....or am I overestimating the stupidity of the general (lurkers and newbies) populace? While i'm ALL For overclocking and overvolting...fact of the matter is you shouldn't be using these voltages unless you're on water or if you're going past 1.4V you should be on LN2.....now damage doesn't happen overnight but it definitely does cause electromigration and I have had CPUs die over the course of 6+ months of continuous insane voltages. I've had several i7-870s die, but it didn't happen overnight, it happened after 6 months of 24/7 usage, like I said at really insane voltages.

I think people will try to do this stuff on air, and I think going in this realm on air is stupid. Just IMO. I don't know, I think a large majority of this website is the average overclocker who is overclocking on air or perhaps quite a few on water. LN2 benchmarkers are here but are a minority. For the latter this is a benefit, for the rest....I dunno, I would be cautious.

Maybe i'm becoming an overclocking sissy...i've overclocked and overvolted for years and years but this is a little too extreme for me redface.gif

This is just my opinion, i'm not trying to hate on you guys that are doing this. You all know what you're doing and are aware of the risks, but I just think that newbies will put this info to bad use and harm their wares.

i agree. everyone listen to xoleras he has very valid points. my 1.4v screenshot was for a brief second and then i shut down. i had my fan set to 100% too.

that being said, we all make our own decisions and if someone else breaks their stuff bc they werent mindful of what they were doing, thats on them. then next time they get a 600 dollar card they will either cool it better or not push it so hard. everyone has to fry a few pieces of hardware at some point and theres nothing you can do about it.. even though i know your intentions are good. Anyways, have fun guys but be careful of what youre really doing here.

EDIT: it was 4am last night when i first saw this whole thing pop up.. i was on my way to bed.. I never made it to bed, and have been up for over 24 hours now. Im due to crash out here pretty soon and will be MIA for the majority of the day. So if all you guys are gonna be posting results that need to be updated to the sheet, dont worry yourselves to death if it doesnt get updated today.. ill get around to it when im not hallucinating from sleep deprivation and mild malnutrition biggrin.gif Have fun

i still dont know why theyre getting that whole "need artmoney pro" thing, though.
can anyone try MSI Afterburner.zip 0k .zip file this file? open afterburner and artmoney, then click table > load and select msi afterburner.amt.
the 00449000 address should appear on the right, and should be editable.

note: afterburner needs to be actually open, with a window and stuff, not running in the taskbar.


EDIT: and yeah, maybe we can put another warning at the OP? im thinking the average gamer who has a 680 lightning will respond properly to "OVER-OVERVOLT AT YOUR OWN RISK, WARRANTY CAN BE VOIDED" in huge red letters or something
