His example of 1.4Ghz is a couple minutes of Sleeping Dogs with the graphics settings turned down though, so, I'm not sure how good of a stability example Sleeping Dogs is since it crashes for me every half-hour so I don't even bother overclocking when playing it. So, going to see what that card does for a Heaven run as a better idea of what it can do before making the buy.

Dun care about fan noise so 80-100% fanspeed is fine by me.. About +120-+150mV? Unlocked ofcourse?

Flash to the unlocked 3A BIOS from the OP and find the directions a few pages back for the Afterburner hack thumb.gif

Hi, wise men of Lightning club owners.
I wanted to do a mild overclock and wanted to know what is acceptable 24/7.
I have single card:
core voltage +25
memory voltage +30
aux voltage +0
power limit 300%
core clock +98 = 1300
memory clock +450 = 6912
Now these numbers aren't my limit. I just want to go this high for 24/7.
unigine heaven:
1920x1200
score 1289
temp gpu max 66c
temp vrm max 69c
(fan auto- I like it quite.)

Thanks in advance.

I finally know what trolling a thread means, I think, 'cause I am on this thread all day every day to see whats up and what's new.
Oh yeah I called MSI to ask what was up with the whole volting the lightning and the guy said "umm, hang on let me get your email address so I can send you afterburner." I thought I was getting the engineer edition wink.gif
But this is what he sent:

Dear all,

Users can also edit the .cfg file in the Afterburner folder. I added instructions here:
http://service.msicomputer.com/html/popup/TechSup/formviewer.asp?esoformid=3026

Dear All,

If you encounter customers with voltage adjustment limitation using Afterburner 2.2.4 it is because we were forced by nVidia to do so.
http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4410624&postcount=67

Please kindly ask the customer to revert back to 2.2.3.

I've achieved the exact same clocks with them, so at least in my case they have the same oc capablities.) 140 is "v80.04.47.00.19" which indeed has capped clocks/voltages.
I upload all 4 of them in case you want to fiddle whit it.
Edit: Attachment removed
Regards! smile.gif
Ps: thanks dph314 for uploading your new bios! If you ever switch the card to normal bios please save your original one and let me check if its a newer one also. Regards!

Well your temps will stay in the 60C's after more voltage/mhz if you increase the fan speed. From what I've read and personal experience, keeping the card below 70C will let it live a much longer life than you'll need it for. Just make sure to increase the fan speed when going closer to +93mv and you'll be fine. It's not like it really matters anyways though, unless you decide to keep the card longer than 3 years, which few on this site do. Because the warranty is 3 years, you should be fine no matter what until your next upgrade.

Thanks dph314.
Have you noticed overclocking your cpu make a difference on gaming?
I know you have to since you are in SLI but in single card on 1920x1200?
