Just recently picked up one of these bad boys, and plan on picking up another soon. Any chance anyone can help me get started on OCing these beasts? I've OC'd by 7970's in the past, but they were stupid easy, I've never actually tried OCing anything like this before.

What steps can I take to get the best possible OC for stable gaming? What are some things I should do within MSI Afterburner to get things started? I've already got my unlocked voltage control ready (durrr rolleyes.gif ) So I just need to know what I've gotta do to get this OC ball rollin'!

Thanks in advanced! smile.gif

Well I would see how you do at +93mv before going beyond that. Both of my 2 that only did 1330mhz-1340mhz with +93mv absolutely hated any more voltage, but the one that did 1430mhz actually took more voltage quite well.

OC'ing should be relatively similar to the 7970. Find your max core with a particular voltage, then bump it up for more mhz. Or just skip right to +93mv and see what the card can really do biggrin.gif (on the LN2 BIOS of course). Heaven should give you a decent idea of what you can expect to be stable in most games.

But if you're used to OC'ing the 7970, then I must warn you... When looking at the graph in Afterburner showing your temps- it's not an error, they really are that low tongue.gif

is there any difference? If there isn't I expect that the Lightning bios can be flashed on and if the PCB's are the same the lightning block will/should fit as well wink.gif

Interested in this too. If the hardware is the same, anyone who knows how to flash a BIOS is going to be saving 50 bucks biggrin.gif

PS- The Lightning Power Edition is the slower/cheaper one? That seems a bit misleading for those who aren't well informed and want to make a decision between the Lightning and the Lightning Power Edition. Obviously if you're buying any kind of Lightning you should be slightly well-informed to begin with, but still, seems backwards to me 2cents.gif
