My question is why in Afterburner 2.2.3 i can only increase my power limit to 133%. Can anyone help me? i can post some screenshot after i get home from work. Thank you

You must be on the default bios and not the LN2 bios...

Right now im running very stabil core 1390 and memory 1720. However power limit is only maximum 133%. Bios version is as in GPU-z. Just want to know why its not 300%. Its running at most 70 degrees celcius at 60% fan speed. And im sure im using LN2



3D mark score at http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4291164 . my Heaven score is 1421 max setting at 1080p . Ithink the score is good enough already

I also noticed that lowering the power limit to something less than 300 helped me, around 220, 225. Could just be my imagination.

Water will definitely help. Maybe 1350mhz in SLI? Which is something I wish I could do frown.gif Damn my other card.
Using Artmoney I can raise the voltage and clock either card to 1400. but in SLI and using Artmoney to raise the voltage I end up with the Red Screen of death. On driver 306.02, haven't tried any other drivers since a fresh install of windows. Back on the 3A bios now that I don't have to listen to the fans spin anymore. I never used the pcie lane switches on my ROG boards before now, they are one of my favorite functions now.

You definitely have the right 3A LN2 BIOS showing, but GPU-Z is saying your default clock is 1111mhz, and it should be saying 1202mhz. And a +155mhz offset gives you 1397mhz core, which means a stock clock of 1242mhz headscratch.gif You look like you're on the default BIOS and it Boosts to 1242mhz, but GPU-Z is showing the LN2 BIOS. Is this another one of the potentially gimped cards? Maybe they changed the Power % in the 3A BIOS, try flashing to the 3A one from the original post in this thread and see if that helps.

That isn't the LN2 BIOS. Just flash over it with the BIOS files from page 1 of this thread. That is the non LN2 BIOS.

Almost 1400 core on non hacked voltage? That dosent seem right. Then again maybe my card sucks. I can only get 1330 core without hacking the voltage. Once I do the hack I can get up to 1400. Seems a little odd that the card can go that high without hacking AB.

The BIOS version in his GPU-Z is exactly the same though. This mean that MSI is releasing cards now with a 3A LN2 BIOS that is locked to 133% Power %?

My one does 1430mhz/7100mhz without the hack, the other will only get up to 1340mhz core without it. So, there's a wide range of cards out there.
