post #3241 of 7827
ok thnx.
Does anyone knows how to get more than +100mv in afterburner? My cards are cold but need more voltage.

is there a Vcore switch on the backside of the backplate? Which needs to get removed or something?
I saw posts here with people running on a hacked Aafter burner with +300 support.

I really have to try +120 to see what it does, my card is like freezing in my antec 1200.. really need some modified AB....

This is what i mean >>
http://www.guru3d.com/miraserver/images/2012/msi-light-ab/Image4.png

I need a slider which can all the way up to +200
im sure i can crank my chip up to 1400mhz or something.


can someone please explain how to hack the Afterburner to remove any resitriction so i can do my benchmarks on realtime base

Lightning 600 series has no switches besides the bios switch anymore. It isn't easy to get a modified AB anymore, they just don't leak out like they used to.
A few people here have used the artmoney hack, qwwwizx did a great guide for it here https://sites.google.com/site/qwwwizx/home/gtx-680
It would be good to have a multi meter on as well to see what the card is really getting & do small bumps.
Be careful when using the hack for more voltage, not just for the life of the card but it is a hack & I read somewhere game servers might see it as a cheat. I would suggest it as a benching tweak & not a 24/7 thing. Good luck!

I just used the artmoney hack again - this time with latest whql driver. I am cooling the GPU with a generic EK VGA block and I took my computer to the window to suck in some cold fresh air (ambient 8c).

GPU 1476MHz! (for some reason GPU-Z cant show my GPU frequencies in idle, so look at the graph in the right)

With the LN2 BIOS activated and +100 (+93 on 2.2.3) I'm sure your card is going over 1.3V
LN2 Bios has a higher default voltage so you are getting more than just +100mv.
Are you on water?

Yes, the ln2 bios at +100 maxes at about 1.37V actual.

Arnoud87 I know the AB you mean, but people aren't modding AB themselves & the extreme version isn't easy to get. If you aren't into extreme cooling & benching chances of getting a copy are not good, there is no public download & nobody leaks it anymore.

Like look at the 7970s, even the 7970 Lightning. It's considered an amazing overclock when they get 1250mhz because even the TFIV cooler can't keep it from burning up. And I can run my 680 at 1400mhz and not even break 70C, so, even though it sucks that the new 680 Lightnings aren't as good as they once were, we should still consider ourselves lucky that we have the best card out there smile.gif

I wonder if there is an optimal point in each generation of GPU for these non-reference cards, where on-average you have the best chance of getting really good overclocks.

Hmm ... it seems the ones that got the Lightnings around the time that the voltage unlock in Afterburner became available got the best Lightnings; if not the best 680s all around.

BTW< suddenly my card doesn't seem to response on the voltage control in afterburner anymore.... I use 222.
Is this a bug? Or is there some Nvidia software in the windows background preventing anything?

This is realy weird i was on 1320 mhz on A3 and now it wont work even at 1270 mhz :S... didn't install anything else.
This was at +100 in LN2 unlocked.
Max temp i reach is like 55 degrees.
I try to remove it and try 223 and than back to 222....



BTW i go try remove any crap from AB222 so i can set my VCore slider to sky limits, really dont 't like this Nvidia limit BS. when im home i go edit the damn program, gotta try if i can get past +100... really need more power under these low temps.

AB 2.2.2 doesn't support voltage control. You need to use 2.2.3, or 2.2.4 with the changes mentioned in the first post.
