Thanks
If you look further back in this thread 200 pages or so you will find a link to a GPUZ version that can save your bios file. There is also a link to a Zotac Firestorm version that can save your bios file and flash your bios within windows, works great, I have used both.

Hey whats happening guys? So I have had my lightning for a month now, and I am encountering some issues while gaming. When I run benchmarks like heaven, the gpu usage is pegged at 99%, but when I game "crysis 2/BF3" my gpu usage is all over the place causing severe stuttering. It was not doing this when I first got the card, and I have tried all the available drivers to no avail. Nothing has changed in terms of updates, or software/hardware. Not sure what is going on, and I know if I RMA the card i'll prob get the turd version. Any ideas?

I just use NVflash to save mine. You have to use it to flash anyways (well, you don't have to, but it's easy).

1500, on one card only but I had to lower my memory frequency and got a lower score and close to 1.6 volts I was a little worried if my card would survive

Yes,
I use a full-waterblock on my Lightning. (look at my rig)
And my Radiators (a 480 and a 240er ) are standing outside. At 1,5 Ghz and running Unigine 3.0, the Gpu goes not over 30 - 33 °C . You can see it here:

1.6 volt might be a little rough for the GPU, but I noticed something else. You graphics score is really low? You should be reaching a graphics score around 14000 and you are not even at 12000?

Yeah just took a closer look and realized that the core clock wasn't running at 1500mhz for the graphics tests. Look closely at the Afterburner graph. Clock looks like it was all over the place for the graphics tests for some reason.
