Famich I do really envy your luck getting golden chips!
Mine's need +68mv to get to 1300 core heaven stable
. At least I can reach 7000 on mems at +50mv, got 4 extra fps en heaven just with mem oc (1350pts vs 1225pts). Really surprised me how much of a performance increase mem oc represents in this card. I can settle down with 1300/7000 (was my goal when bought it), just wish I could achieve it without voltage tweaking so to avoid this nvidia/msi restriction hassle.
One little doubt I have, if I save my profile with +68mv, when I reaply it, it goes down to 62m. The only way to have +68mv aplied from start is to save a profile with +74mv so it goes down to +68mv when applied. Actual aplied offset seems to be replaced by target offset when profiles get saved.
Is that correct or am I misunderstanding something? Btw: using stock fan profile I get 69º core and 64º vrm on heaven, are those readings acceptable or must I use a more agressive custom profile? Like to keep it silent if possible...
I agree with you all about nvidia restriction and msi obsequious, it's definitely wrong
, but most probably a workaround will be found (I wish so, if not I'll lose 100mhz on core and 1000Mhz on memory, my card does not overclock over 25mhz core and 100mhz memory without added voltage (it sucks, I know)). So, if the lockup is definitive, I'll lose that nearly 15% performance bunch I get from voltage tweaking this card, and taking into acount we all paid MSi for that voltage tweaking, I feel they are now "stealing" it from us. I would like to know how many of us would have bought the lightning if it had no voltage tweaking from scratch (5% perhaps?). I would personaly have gone for a reference if wanted to save, or for a CUII if wanted granted performance (in most cases they can reach 1300/7000 with no extra voltage added). Just my 2 cents...
