Kind Regards!


Ah thats great! Cause I'm actually using the LN2 bios on my DCII heheh.

Heaven 3.0

Stock cooler: 1315mhz +450 on RAM
Water: 1331mhz +450 RAM

BF3

Stock cooler: 1320mhz +450 RAM
Water: 1335mhz +450 RAM


I could get great clocks I'm sure if I use Hotwire. But i'm not willing to fork over that much cash just to get a RIVE or a MVE. I'd rather go SLI. biggrin.gif

Great clocks you got there with ln2 stock voltage, the DC2T is really a good card, thanks for the info!

Btw, using 2.2.4 with profile mod and it works like a charm... thumb.gif

Is there any particular reason you would do this, are you part of a benchmarking team or something? I wouldn't advise messing with it because it

1) doesn't help games performance
2) increases heat output tremendously
3) higher than 1.4V is pure madness, only reserved for those that are doing LN2 benchmarking IMO
4) kepler architecture changes GPU clockspeed depending on the application, MOST games don't even push the card past 1202mhz on the LN2 BIOS because its already capped at 60 fps.

Most of my games run at vsync and barely stress my cards. A stock MSI lightning gets nearly 1.375V, that by itself is pretty darn high, very much past kepler specs. I'm just curious, I dunno, this is all my opinion though - I recognize that some competetive benchmarkers may want to go with a higher voltage - but I should reiterate that going past 1.4V you need better cooling. And you don't do that type of voltage 24/7.

just got 2.2.4 after burner. it says i'm on 1.212v when gaming on BF3. What is the "real" volt figure of 1.212v?

Around 1.25-1.26v hardware usually. Grab a cheap DMM.. wink.gif

haha yes yes biggrin.gif. It does not go over 65 core / 63 vrm, so I'll live with that temps cause its so damn quiet on auto fan... Do you think those temps are not safe?

Regards!

Naw, sounds good man! I'm using SLI though so my temps creep up (on the top card) steadily with auto fan frown.gif

With SLI you might really need the watercooling smile.gif

You on the LN2 BIOS? And what version is it?
I have no idea what that means biggrin.gif But whatever works. Plus since the unlocked BIOS is already out here, we could probably use the hack with any version of Afterburner, since these cards aren't BIOS-limited like many other ones.

Make sure your temps are staying at safe levels. And make sure you follow these instructions carefully.

I know this is the type of site where people want to do this kind of stuff, even if it doesn't mean a trophy in a Pro competition. I know I get nothing out of it except the thrill in and of itself. That's the only reason I keep posting the directions for the hack, because I know it's fun, albeit a bit dangerous (adds to the excitement of course wink.gif). But, again, just watch temps and be careful redface.gif

-Download ArtMoney SE v7.39
-Open Afterburner 2.2.3
-Right-click ArtMoney and select Run as Admin, then click continue
-Select Afterburner from the drop-down list in the center
-Set the core voltage (or any voltage you want to 'edit') in Afterburner to a number other than +0 (just to help narrow results) and click Apply. For this example, we'll assume you set the core voltage to +31mv
-Click Search in ArtMoney and enter 31 in the value box and then click OK, then click OK again
-Change that same voltage in Afterburner to another number, we'll say +63mv, then click Apply
-Click Filter in ArtMoney and change the Value box to the new voltage value you just applied in Afterburner and click OK, then OK again
-Click the top arrow in ArtMoney to move the top value listed in the left column to the right column (If you did the search and filter correctly, then the addresses for each voltage you should have come up with depending what you were editing are- Core = 00449000, Memory = 00449030, Aux = 00449060)
-Once you moved one of those into the right column, right-click it and go to Set Value, enter the voltage off-set you would like, then click OK, and notice that it's changed in ArtMoney
-Now, change one of the clock speeds so that you are able to click the Apply button in Afterburner, and then click it. You will now see the edited voltage jump to the amount you entered in ArtMoney
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ENTER. Make sure the voltages in Afterburner jumped to where they were supposed to before you put any type of load on the card

Umm yes i have unlocked Bios, the card i have now isn't great i did have a golden chip but i sold it to a mate on my forum.. It did 1365mhz stock with AB 2.2.2.. If i still had that card i could have gone 1500mhz now.. Oh well frown.gif Im buying 4 lightnings to run 4 way SLI so i will see what the best card can do... wink.gif

Hey while im here, what mhz clock does your Lightning do / bench on LN2 bios with untouched +0mV ???

Glad it worked out thumb.gif Mine did 1350mhz/7000mhz with +0mv
