Something else is causing your issue

I'll do further testing tonight and put the classy back on. But first I will change Pcie slots with the msi.

Can it also be because I'm on a 8x lane and pcie 2.0?

I can reach 1320 and I paid about $200 less then a classified with evbot. This card also runs cooler then most classified temps I have read.
The lightning being 2gb is good enough to max any game for most people that are playing at 1920x1200/1080.
Actually , I would suggest the lightning over any other 2gig on the market right now with some of the best features period.

Try this out. I am in the process of doing an RMA with my SOC right now otherwise I'd jump all over it.

I said right away you should RMA that card. It should not be crashing, even if you are showing over 2000MBs VRAM usage. Tell them it crashes when VRAM usage goes up on stock clocks and they will tell you that you have a valid RMA reason. And the PCIe 2.0 x8 probably won't affect a single card much, but either way, even if there was a ~5% difference in performance between x8 and x16, I doubt it would cause crashing.

xoleras is right. And MSI Alex has even said that the 2GB card will be faster than 4GB on any single screen set-up, and that they went with 2GB for the Lightning because it was built for performance. They would have made it 4GB right off the bat if needing more than 2GB was even somewhat common among users. 4GB will only improve performance if you get massive stuttering because of VRAM limitations. If you don't get insane stuttering, then 4GB won't help you.

not sure if this question has been answered already...been busy actually enjoy my setup and playing through some games smile.gif...what does it mean when i alt tab out of a game and look at AB and for some reason one of my lightnings has the core voltage at like -131 after i set it to +93 offset? what causes this?

Oh wow. I'm kinda surprised by this, if I had that card i'd keep it for sure. Didn't it clock over 1300 out of the box? Did it have issues ?

My slider for the core voltage only goes down to -100. No idea. Does it do it all the time or did it just happen once?

Oh WOW.

Remember how I used to always talk about how my GPU1 was always a lot hotter than GPU2? I switched my GPU positions (GPU2 > GPU1) and found that one of my GPU2 was higher in temps (remember , I swapped this from top to bottom). I knew this wasn't right because GPU1 is supposed to be hotter than GPU2 in SLI, yet here i swapped my cards and GPU2 is still hotter.

So I took my card out and inspected further, and I may have gotten a used card from newegg. Thanks newegg (I bought this on week 1 by the way, W T H??). There are fingerprints where there should be none (on the PCB!) and such, apparently someone before me removed the shroud as well. I'm not HAPPY abou this, but i'm not complaining *that much*, because this is my golden chip that does 1400 .Newegg gave me a 50$ coupon so whatever. So anyway I remove the shroud and reapply PK1 TIM and reseat the shroud and my temps literally improved by 10C. I am just floored by this because both of my lightnings run within 1C of each other in SLI now.

I just did a 1402mhz run in SLI and before that would make my GPU1 go up near 80C. Now both GPUs are around 70C at that speed! Better yet, my GPU1 doesn't get far hotter than GPU2 in SLI like it did previously.

And GRR at newegg for selling used cards. I *may* try that hexedit thing now, i'm feeling brave today. Or maybe i'll wait for water blocks frown.gif

FINALLY the beast has arrived. Just finished and installed drivers. Haven't tried to oc yet, cannot stop staring at how magnificent it looks. Also it came with the 3A bios. Time to test out and report back later.biggrin.gif I will probably buy a volt meter this weekend to get the clocks down.

3dmark11 run @ 1402, top GPU1 @ 67C, GPU2 @ 64C

This TIM re-application did wonders
