There's a tendency for people to max out voltage when doing this stuff (including memory, aux, etc), but that is definitely not the best approach (IMO) it usually causes a lot of secondary issues if you go too high. When I go to 1402mhz on my cards, I get that with +100mV --- if I add more voltage on top of that or max out aux, memory, etc, My temps just go 10C higher with no benefit except crashing whereas it doesn't if I don't max out...(need to try it on water)
Of course, you could just be at a wall and that sucks if so frown.gif

Well the second cards seems to take voltage a little better. This is the one that was at only 1320/6950 with unedited 2.2.3. With the cooling I use for these suicide runs (AC takes the room down to 16C, side-panel off, fan blowing cold air onto GPU), I keep temps with all this voltage at only slightly higher than when I don't freeze the room and open the computer. For example, in SLI this card's core will reach ~62C with my max OC it'll do (1320mhz). When using all this voltage on the card when it's alone and freezing the room, it got up to 68C. I don't know if that little of an increase affects the clock so much or not. But this card's clocks didn't seem to love the voltage either (CPU only running stock speed)-
----

----
With Core at +179mv, Memory at +120mv, and PLL at +80mv, I got the card up to 1345/7000, 1355/6950 ended up crashing. Temps weren't insane, as you can see in the pic. I understand what you're saying too about the higher voltages, but my experience has always been- if a clock is stable at a certain voltage, it will only become unstable at some lower one, not higher (temps permitting). I've never crashed on a stable clock/voltage combo by raising the voltage first, as I sometimes do to make sure temps are OK before also raising the clock and making temps even higher.

So I don't know, this edit seems to show my cards just don't like more voltage. I mean with 2.2.3, that's +100mv we got and I got roughly 40mhz more. So, with another ~70mv, only getting another 20mhz sadly enough seems about right sadsmiley.gif

This card does stay pretty cool though. I mean considering the insane voltage, I kept it under 70C and the VRMs under 55C (assuming software is reporting correctly). So, that's really not bad. I could never run my 570s at 1.1v because temps would get into the high 80C's. Now 1.4v+ isn't getting temps into the danger-zone. Awesome card, but I wish it took the extra voltage better.

Let us know how it overclocks! Thats a beast of a card for sure, although the price is a little too high for me thumb.gif

The address should be 00449000. Select 'integer 4 bytes' for "Type". Check the "Freeze" box, then choose "from minimum to maximum" in the adjacent dropdown box. Then enter 143 and 150 into the "minimum" and "maximum" boxes, respectively. This prevents the value from being changed back down to the +93 max of AB.
  • voila!

Well, I was really hoping for "easy" 1350 core... that + lower power consuption + better performance on blizzard games would make my mind towards the 680L... But bypassing this voltage lock and the boost is getting very very tricky... even more with SLI... I guess is time for me to pull the trigger on a decent pair of 7970s that can do 1300Mhz with 1.3V... god I hope 7xx doesn't have this stupid lock...

Almost every Lightning will do 1300mhz without the edit, and with less than 1.3v. And definitely remain a lot cooler while doing it too.

I get a steady 1377 on a pair in SLI with no hex editing, just the parameters in AB 2.2.3

I got a 24/7 everyday 1300+ with AB 2.2.2, in fact I have AB 2.2.2 set to start in my startup folder so I get the rather aggressive auto fan profile I have set any time I fire up my rig. If I want to try a bench, I launch AB 2.2.3 and run it with manual fan, but it's not as handy as 2.2.2 for everyday stuff.

What were your results with the edit? With like, say, +130mv?

I never tried the hex edit thing. I'll flash a BIOS or install new drivers, but I'm not about to go fiddling around with that hex editor thing. All I've done is download AB 2.2.3 and flashed to the new A3 unlocked LN2 BIOS. I'm very satisfied with what 2.2.3 brought me, I had one of the lower clocking pair of cards before, now I have pretty respectable numbers for an SLI application when I want them, but I don't use them except to run a new bench.

DPH, My instability temperature threshold has been low on the lightnings, when my core temp is 70C and i'm overvolting a lot I can feel the side of my card and it is hot. I mean..HOT. Like, my top card in SLI it hurts to touch the heatpipe sometimes. The cooler does great on dispersing heat from the core and VRM but there must be other temp sensitive components i'm thinking. Thats the only explanation as to my results. I can get 1402mhz @ +100mV but maxing everything out will make it unstable at the same settings. I absolutely cannot go in and max out every voltage slider in existence, that ruins my overclocks and honestly I don't think its the best approach to air OC'ing. If anyone else has other opinions on this, please share.

I really think there are more components that suffer when volts get high, although I can't say for sure. I do know that overvolting too much on air will always lessen stability for me, I really think past 1.3V is not meant for air and won't help things on air..... I really feel like more is not always better, you have to find a happy medium.

I don't know, thats what my findings have been. If anyone else has any overclocking particulars or oddities they've found, please share by all means thumb.gif Keep in mind that this is in the context of SLI. Temps are never ever an issue with single card with the 2nd card removed. But in SLI temps are much more sensitive for GPU1. (GPU2 blows hot air directly onto GPU1)

If any other lightning SLI users can share your results and thoughts, i'd love to hear em!
