I still want to know why mine is showing ~100% at 1480/7200 @ 1.42v while other people have had less voltage yet almost double the power usage. Is it confirmed to be a 2.2.3 error?
Yeah, I know. I ve already had 3A version of BIOS. Now I ve just moved to old F8. If I set my power limit to 300% (now it is 160%) shall i get more overkclocking ability?

Ah, I see. raising It just prevents the card from throttling. If the Power % reaches the limit the core clock will throttle to remain within the Power limit. Apparently Afterburner 2.2.3 reads power usage wrong. So setting the Power slider at anything 200% or over is high enough on air to allow the card to stay at its speed without throttling. It won't help stability though, although a few have said different Power % values do make a small difference, but it could just be that other factors were in play and were responsible.

I see, thanks. Now I have not yet changed core voltage in AB from 0. AB allows me to set it up to 100. Shall I get more overclocking stability from setting it to 100?

And to use AB 224 you need to add strings in ur hardware profile to get +83 effective, so read post 1 for info.
And you really dont need hardmods to bypass the limits of +100 AB for voltage, but you just need to hack it, and thats not for people new with overclocking.
I ran my 680 Lightning on 1,5V + on air (+200 vcore AB 224). for 30 sec to check some things, works fine. Useless on air anyway.
Good to know there are really NO limits with the lightning if you know more about it.
Artficats is often just a limit of the core, and crashing with no reason often results in not enough volts.
+80 on air really is enough, tho.. thats 1,37V realtime.
Mine is maxed out at 1293mhz, bad chip even at low degrees it cant keep up.
Everything at 1250+ is good anyway, biggest limiting factor is the slow 256-bit memory controller on the 680.

To the extent this is directed to me at all, I read the first post in detail. It doesn't mention anything about a locked 3A bios with the same bios number as the unlocked. That seems to be a relatively new development.

Definitely. Voltage is the primary variable, Temps too, to a lesser extent though. So just make sure they don't get too high while raising the voltage.

With no voltage control I don't see the point in putting blocks on em

Oh there voltage control, nvm

Went through the same thought process. I just went with the 2 Lightnings and some blocks from Aquacomputer. My 670PE will be sold soon. The blocks look great. Sidewinder should have a few left.
