I'm not saying this "102" version couldn't be fake, just pointing out that other versions have this internal structure too wink.gif
If you look it deeply, 102 (39) y very similar to 111 (3A), so i guess it might be the normal bios of 3A LN2 bios set.
Kind Regards!
PS: Famich can you tell us if voltaje adjustment is working right for you under that normal bios version?

Yes, Ican go up to the offset +130MHz PWTGT 125 V +93 mV - it took me to 1372 MHz Unigine extr tesselation stable ...
and I can really confirm that this is the BIOS the card came with.

The other LN2 BIOS was the already known 82.04.28.003A , yet the BIOS no I was 80.04.28.00.39

Really considering buying one.

Thanks.smile.gif

Get one. You won't regret it wink.gif

No downside to the new ones whatsoever. BIOS can be flashed to whatever you want. My latest one was purchased less than 2 weeks ago I think it was, and it came with the regular unlocked BIOS. So, not sure if another BIOS will be released that is 'locked-down' to appease Nvidia. If there is we haven't seen it yet. Not sure about the UPC numbers, but yeah even if you're the first of us to get the locked BIOS, you can just flash in 2 seconds smile.gif

I wish I had another good card like yours so I could SLI at 1400mhz, ha.

K, I am tired of looking for one of these magic cards and would like to find someone willing to sell one that is stable in benchmarks at 1400mz or over.
Thanks

Hey guys, new member here. From South Africa (for anyone who doesn't know where that is, its on south of Africa lol). I recently acquired a 680 Lightning second hand(was bought about 2 months ago by the original owner) and was keen on doing a bit of clocking and heaven runs. Only after I bought the card did I read up on all the ****e that nvidia has done with the voltage locking.

So I wanted to see if i had either the old ln2 bios/the newer still unlocked ln bios or the completely restricted new ln2bios. I have tried to read through as much of this thread as humanely possible, but my eyes are getting strained @_@, biggrin.gif

so if anyone could please answer me simply : Which version of the ln2 bios is this : 80.04.28.00.3a. I have tried some clocking and AB reads max voltage to be 1.306, but then this drops to 1.277 when I run a stress test. (not sure if I must just increase the clock to "max out" the voltage as i'm sure the clocks i'm using (1202 Base: 1252 boost, default mem) are not high enough to require the full 1.3V

Hello, it is the newer version of the MSI unlocked BIOS - with the digital MM you could see the voltage to jump up to 1.37 with it.
