Oh no...

First we have to establish that the newer cards won't take the old BIOS. If that's true, then that REALLY blows. If they don't then maybe the hack will work still? Sucks that people will have to use the hack just to hit the +93mv that everyone else with older cards can do, but it might work.

That is the same bios version I have that is voltage unlocked, & it will only go +18mV? Did that one come on the card or did you flash it?

Came on the card, I'm playing with it right now. Its been in the system for a week or two I just haven't had time to work with it much. I think I got the voltage unlocked by re-installing AB. I can set it up to +93mv now but it always reverts back to +18mv when I hit apply. FWIW, the memory goes to +100mv and the aux to +50mv just fine.

Flash to the unlocked 3A one from the OP anyways. Maybe MSI kept the version label the same but changed the max voltage. Flash and let us know thumb.gif

Just being weird, normally you set 100mV, hit apply & it's 93mV. Save as a profile & load at 93mV, when applied it's at 87mV. Normal to drop 6 or 7mV at a time when hitting the apply, but dropping 75mV is unusual...

Maybe this is the new Nvidia-compliant 3A BIOS version? Afterburner still goes up to +93mv because it hasn't changed, but the card is BIOS-locked to +18mv?

Should be interesting to see what happens when he flashes to the 3A from the OP.

Ok, so on a whim I driver-swept the 304.79's and changed to the 306.02 and now it works fine.

Also helped my score a little bit from here: P9919

To here: P10061

Running +135/+300 right now as it was an easy slap-in now that the voltage wants to bump up, I will try for more later. Boost clock is maxing out at 1350mhz. 1364mhz in GW2.

Same as Scorpion49's card above, I have the same bios version that I've run up to 1.6V into. Scorpion is testing now & has it working right, maybe try a clean driver install & make sure voltage is unlocked in afterburner settings.
