Starting to think that the newest Lightnings are hard locked when it comes to voltage, i got mine yestarday from Fys and there is no voltage control even with the unlocked bios mad.gif

You using Afterburner 2.2.3, or editing the config file if using a later version?
Also, software reading is inaccurate. But voltage displayed should still rise, even though it's not actually the voltage the card is at. But yeah, mine is usually 50mv lower than what I have it set at, so if it's the same for you then 1.21v software reading would be 1.26v, like you should be getting. If it's not raising along with the slider setting, then you might not have version 2.2.3.

Just got my 680 lightning today, was able to get it to 1385mhz stable in 3dmark11 using the f8 ln2 bios (using win 7 64bit) thumb.gif

Is there any way I can increase the voltage higher than +100mv? Msi afterburner OSD shows the card at 1.28v while the program says its running at 1.31, but I'm sure if I can give it a little more voltage I can hit 1400mhz

See this thread info about the Art Money hack .. but be careful with your temps.. dph314 has posted the thorough instructions twice here wink.gif

I am really curious how does ASIC score correlates with the OC on Lightning. Does higher ASIC score means higher OC or it does not really matter on air. Maybe You guys can add Your ASIC score together with the 3DMark11 score so we can get to the conclusion. What do You think?

I have a problem with my new msi gtx-680 lightning card.
It seems something i can't get my mind on to fix this, that is why i came here to ask help.

A few times a day the fans go spinning real hard, without reason.
Normal during surfing etc. the fan speed from videocard is about 1140 rpm, and gpu temperature is about 39 degrees celsius.

Then suddenly the fans spins up to 3350 rpm and then slows down back to 1140 rpm, while the temperature is not changing.

The cpu and videocard are both not overclocked.
I have tried several drivers, from nvidia site and msi site
I have bios version 80.04.47.00.41 in videocard

My system specs are:

PSU corsair 850 watts
CPU : i7 2600K
MOBO: Asus p8z68-v pro
Mem : 2x 4GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8

I have made a screenshot, red arrow is gpu temperature, and yellow arrow is fan rpm speed

Maybe someone knows what is going on with the card.

Ok, since I have had time to mess around with the card a few things.

1. Yes, voltage control is inconsistent with afterburner 2.2.3. Sometimes I will start it after a gaming crash and it read -83 for core voltage.

2. Can you use art money for AB 2.2.3 or only newer versions? I tried using it and I don't see the 00449000 value. Maybe I'm looking for the wrong address?

3. My gpu max clock offset is 150 and 730 offset for memory. Temperature wise it's not pushed nor is power. Long term gaming stability I run +600 offset on mem. Without more voltage I can't push the gpu.

In regards to testing overclocks. I used heaven and prime95 and thought I had a solid system afterwards tuning out CPU, gpu, and mem. I started battlefield 3 and it was completely unstable. It seems heaven will run on settings maxed out and is less picky with hardware settings.
