Dude, I don't think you have enough gear. You must buy more. Go, now.

There are two BIOS' ROMs for the MSI lightning and when someone states that it is "unlocked", they mean unlocked voltage control via software.

The voltage is not locked, you can adjust it up to 1.37V via afterburner. I have literally no idea what you're talking about, every msi lightning is unlocked in terms of voltage adjustment regardless of which BIOS it uses - 2 versions have been released and they both allow it.

Concur to that ...thumb.gif

So what voltage are you guys running on your daily OC? Also please specify if you use BIOS1 or LN2 for daily use/gaming. Cheers.

Personally I either run stock on BIOS1 or +68mv on BIOS1 for 1300/7000

I have a feeling this chips won't like high voltage in the long run unless exceptional cooling is used. - I could be completely wrong however, I was just surprised at Nvidia's reaction to voltage control...

Same here, BIOS1 for approx 1320ish on both GPUs in SLI. I can bench on LN2 much higher than that but for actual games there isn't really a need for it, that could change on water though. I'm pretty happy as is - BIOS 1 uses less power / heat output than LN2 so I use BIOS1 for 24/7
post #2246 of 7827
I had a MSI 680 lightning that the LN2 bios was way different. Don't recall the number but it didn't have any letters in the bios name. Also that card was horrible if I increased the voltage +001 it would crash and burn. Even if no increase on anything else. That card was returned.
post #2247 of 7827
Xoleras is that with stock voltage for BIOS1? If not, what's your offset voltage for that OC? Cheers

Does anyone have the Aqua Computer water block installed yet. I haven't seen anyone post any pic's or results yet. Or have I just not looked in the right place. Sidewinder has them on there site.

Is this the new 'Nvidia-friendly' BIOS we've been hearing about?
