I'm assuming with Afterburner 2.2.4 (and the config edits) I should have no problem with voltage control or voltage resets after driver crashes?

personally i got a higher oc in 2.2.3 then .4..any body else oc higher in the old afterburner?

I have used both and noticed no difference. Both seem the same for me.

just ordered watercooling supplies *_*

Will have a high performance universal block (Supremacy don't judge... its copper and its the highest performer D: and should also be much better on the core than a full coverage block ) on the core and 20 thermal tape on heatsink things with a high power fan on the other mem / VRMs

Will post back next week (or whenever it arrives) with results....

side note... i hate the waiting game.

So I attempted to overclock using Afterburner 2.2.4 and the config edit, and it didn't matter if I maxed out the voltage, I couldn't run 1320 core/6800 mem. I know, that is a very high clock, and I was more so just doing it to see how high I could reach with this card. My problem is that it doesn't appear the config edit worked for that version of Afterburner, so I reverted to the 2.2.3 version. My question is, how do I get an accurate voltage reading? I'm currently using GPU-Z, but no matter what voltage I give it, the program always seems to read 1.175v, which is the max voltage locked by most cards. I have the 3A unlocked LN2 BIOS version, so why am I still having these voltage issues and not being able to get an accurate voltage reading?

At +100 the voltage is about 1.35v.

I actually just found the solution. Let this be a heads up to future Lightning purchasers, even if your BIOS reads as the modern unlocked LN2 version (80.04.28.00.3A), it can still be a LOCKED version. It appears that MSI may have updated their 80.04.28.00.3A BIOSes, which are usually acknowledged as the unlocked version in these forums ,so that they are now locked as well. I finally noticed because in MSI Afterburner, my max power draw could only be set to 133%. Once I flashed the BIOS to the unlocked version on the front page, my max was set at %300. Looks like I'm going to be able to overclock this sucker hard after all!

They want you to think the bios is unlocked.

yet another 8000mhz mem run at +0 voltage... +100 or +50 gives same score btw wink.gif

Need fans really maxed out, BF3 runs great. Heaven some artifacts after awhile.

Unfortunately, I got a bit of a CPU bottleneck

What's your score with the memory at, say, 7500mhz? You sure you're not losing performance at 8000mhz from the ECC or whatever kicking in?

Hope that annoying bug with voltage backwards after pc restart is gone, MSI gets worse and WORSe seems
