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

Is the MSI logo lit up on the back of your card?

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.

Have u seen another card like this? Just got it 5 days ago

How about my card OC speed is it good and the same as others? If it is good i dont really want to bother about it. However, if i flash to older bios and hacking the voltage will it go to 1500 on air? haha

Yes the led at the back of msi logo is working.

Es

Yeah make me wonder too how high it can go

That's a great overclock, but it should be saying 300% Power limit with that BIOS. It probably won't throttle at all though, because even when I had a huge +150mv offset on the core, I was only hitting around 100-105%, so, but yeah It would be interesting to hook a DMM up to that thing to see what voltage it's getting. But no, I've never seen a 133% Power limit on the 3A BIOS.

I did monitor the gpu-z under heaven and BF3 play and the card never throttle under full load. Hm im not good at using DMM(never used one) haha but i can try to buy a cheap one and see how it goes

Has anyone tried there cards without the GPU Reactor, if so did it affect your overclovking or stability in anyway. That is my only complaint, it interferes with the slot above, I would not sacrifice performance by removing it tho.

If you flash to the 3A BIOS from the original post and you then have a 300% Power % then you'll be good. The overclock you're getting sounds like you have the same voltage as the rest of us, as you're right around the average overclock. But flashing takes 2 seconds so I'd give it a try, and it should give you the 300%. Directions for that are also in the OP.

.

Both the LN2 and non LN2 BIOS that is shipping now is version 3A, I think MSI germany has it on their website for download. I downloaded it from there a while back
and both BIOS files were version 3A, while the original BIOS had differing versions for LN2 and non LN2

I did leave the gpu reactor off while benching water cooled, it didn't make any difference for benchies at least.

Ah. Thanks redface.gif

Well froloz, I guess you didn't flip the switch to the right afterall (do so while the computer is completely off)

Nope , I had the same version of "regular " and LN2 BIOS , LN2 only ending with 3A -see my older posts, I have uploaded the BIOS ses as well..
