post #5041 of 7827
so guys is there a way via MSI to set two differents oc settings for two cards?

the (minor) problem i'm having right now is that i've managed to use 1306mhz for gaming, by setting +106 on MSI, the fact is that the second card with +106 added doesn't reach 1306, but hits 1280mhz, so each time i have to go on msi uncheck "syncronize similar gpus" and slide up the second card, this is allready annoyng, is there a walkaround to get two card at the same identical clock without being pissed off every time? mad.gif

this is what i'm talking about :

There's a go-getter thumb.gif Diving right in. I like it biggrin.gif

With some more voltage, you could probably surpass my 1480mhz one if it's winter where you live or you have them watercooled. You should be extremely happy you got 2 great ones thumb.gif I could only manage to get one.
I know the BIOS might have said it's the 3A version, but it might be locked. Do you have a 300% Power Limit?

here is winter, it has started do snow just an hour ago (already stopped), but is still very cold out there and i'd prefere having full blocks, but no bucks redface.gif

btw maybe i did explain it clearly, for 1400mhz they need +143mv at least on 3dmark2011 but i actually don't know if that voltage is more than necessary .... using +150 i gained 1433mhz, the other card isn't so lucky .... but anyways i'm still happy since i was able to run 1400mhz on air wich is simply amazing for me smile.gif this with artmoney hack eh... tongue.gif

next time i run som benchies i'll make sure to plug my digital multimeter so if anyone ask i can clearly answer with precision.

so your cards are with stock cooler too?

Yeah, mine are on the stock cooler. I wish I had 2 good ones, but I definitely don't. My one good one makes up for it though I guess. Hitman is incredibly demanding, and I can run it at a constant 99% load at 1424/7000 with voltages at +99mv/+20mv and I get a max temp of 63C smile.gif (this is without the window open or anything like when benching, normal room temp of ~20-21C)

I think I'll sell my good one to Majin, because I know he's been wanting one of these since the beginning. I'll use my worse one for the last month or so before the 700-series comes out. Probably going to sell it in a month or two. So, yeah, Majin, let me know if you're interested in a card that does 1480mhz on air wink.gif

LOL ... 1424 +99mv is a really great card mate smile.gif and temps are really good too! actually i don't know if is a good idea selling my two cards for those 700 ... cause if i do, i'd definetely going on 780 lightning biggrin.gif no moar custom cards! tongue.gif

can you help me out on my previous post? thumb.gif

Damn right 1424 @ +93 is awesome. Mine won't go over 1398 MHz @ +93

I'm not too sure actually. I'm not home at the moment to test, and I never really use the profiles so I don't know off-hand. But when you save a profile to the "1" slot, that's only for the one card, but when you go to settings and select Card 2, the profile is still there in Slot 1 I believe. So, you could just use Slot 1 for Card 1 and switch over to Card 2 and use Profile Slot 2 for that one. That way when you start up, click the "1" to load that profile for the first card, and select card 2 in the Settings, and click "2" for that card.

Other than that, not sure. You could keep both on the LN2 BIOS. Same Base Clock for them that way. Then you can keep the 'sync similar GPUs' checked and they'll both have the same overclock with the one saved Profile.

Thanks. Yeah the other one sucks. Can't get it over 1340mhz with...I think I actually went slightly over +93mv. Maybe +99 I went up to. And I was still only stable at 1340mhz core. So, one sucks and one is good. I don't usually need to overclock in SLI anyways, so, I'm fine with one good one I suppose. Really jealous of you and xoleras and a few others that have 2 great cards though.

Newegg dropped mine off a day early biggrin.gif


This card is MASSIVE for a single GPU. It's longer than my 4870x2s.


$1500 dollars worth of GPUs. Too bad $1000 worth of them are dead. I hope this card lasts longer than those two did. Not that I intend to use it for a decade, but it could go into another machine or be sold when I upgrade to something else. Those 4870x2s will be going in the oven soon thumb.gif



Messy wiring solution. I have no idea where the 8 pin PCI cables are that came with my PSU, so I used the combination 6+2 and 6 pin. Had three of them since my PSU was originally designed for GTX 280 Tri SLI.


It fit PERFECTLY around my SATA ports. Just barely.



Gave it a run in Heaven, DirectX 11 no tesselation. Is this good for these settings? (Note this isn't my official Heaven run for the club)


At least Heaven isn't CPU limited


It's amazing how cool and quiet this card is. I can't hear it over my case fans. It's DEAD SILENT. Stays around 60C too.


I tried 1254/6110 on stock voltages. Heaven got about halfway through and crashed so looks like I'll need to load the old bios on there for some more volts.

Use 100% fan speed for benches, every degree helps.

And yes, you'll have much more luck with the 3:thumb:A

Hey guys,

Can some people please post pics of the AB setup with their Lightnings?
I'm struggling to get a decent OC with SLI lightnings.

I want to see Core, AUX + Mem voltage.
Also Power limit, i heard lowering it from 300 can give me a better OC.

Card 1 so far on LN2 voltage i can get around 1355mhz
Card 2 i struggle to get +100 on the core clock.

I have +93 core voltage
-50 AUX
+30 mem voltage.

Overclocking these individually is a pain in the arse because AB 2.2.3 keeps lowering my core voltages on each startup...

I'm wondering the same thing about afterburner saving the settings... btw StreekG where did you get those black 8 pin cables in your sig rig? I need a set of those for my Lightning.

Were both cards flashed to the LN2 BIOS?
Did you sync the cards at those settings? If you did, you might have to un-sync them and drop that core clock on the top one to match the bottom (dropping voltage too, of course). Same issue with me. I have one good card and one not-so-great one. I don't OC in SLI often, but when I do, the bottom card needs a good bit of added voltage to hit 1300mhz, and the top one does 1300mhz on the stock voltage. So I set things up for both cards individually instead of sync'ing them because of their varying capability levels.

So, being in the same boat, having 2 cards with considerably different silicon, I'd just go to the 1st and 2nd card's settings individually. Run the max clocks/voltage you can hit on the 2nd card, and then set the top card accordingly to match. Top card will need less voltage than +93mv to hit the bottom card's max speed, so set them individually so you're not creating unnecessary heat.

Hey, a fellow Buffalonian. Nice to meet someone else suffering through this incredibly cold day with me. I think the high today was 0C biggrin.gif I would have went for the top spot on HWbot in the single-card 3dMark11 stock cooler category today, but it didn't stop snowing before I had to head out. Didn't wanna blow any flakes into this bad boy redface.gif
