It is easier than that. Just use MSI Afterburner version 2.2.3 and flash your LN2 Bios to 80.04.28.00.3A if it isn't that one. Ofc you can get a later version of Afterburner and modify it but I see no point as there are no feature you need in newer versions of MSI AB.

Np buddy,

I have read all of your posts in this thread and you have given some great information.thumb.gif


I will check again tonight what in game setting I have but I'm sure I have maxed it out.
post #5203 of 7827
Thanks guys smile.gif Btw, once I flash my card and get into AB, should I just set all voltage sliders to max? If I undertood correctly they are just the max voltage the card can achieve and not the voltage itself.
post #5204 of 7827
I did the config edit for the voltage on the 2.3.0 version, i had no issues with 2.2.3 but i figured with the config edit i can have the new features or whatever from 2.3.0

I did notice that you get +99 voltage now, not +93. If anyone is interested.
However you still get voltage drops from restarting afterburner, or restarting the computer.

Welcome to the site and welcome to the club thumb.gif

But yeah the reference to Afterburner in the first post is for versions proceeding 2.2.3. If you want to use a later version than 2.2.3 because it has a fix for something you'd like to take advantage of, then you'll have to do that config file edit. I just use Afterburner 2.2.3 because I find there's nothing wrong with it as far as what I do with it.

So, using 2.2.3 or editing later versions with the copy/paste of the three lines of code will let you add up to +93mv to the core. If by 'voltage unlock hack' you're referring to more than +93mv, then no, that is something completely different and not in the OP. That allows you any voltage you want, and is pretty dangerous if you're not paying attention to both the process in general, as well as temperatures afterwards.
So...exact same system, and 2 Lightnings crash, but the 470 doesn't. Hmmm.... I don't know, I think it's the PSU for some reason. I'm sure someone can come up with a better diagnosis, but if not maybe you could try another PSU? Order one from a site like Newegg that'll easily let you return it and get a Corsair / Cooler Master or something along those lines and see how it goes.

Thanx for the help, i will try that. Ive read in other frms many people with the same problem , swaped out cards psu mobos, still it hapens. Does anyone hear had that hapen to them? Will post my 3d mark results on stock bios OC to 1372 . Can you guys tell me if its a good score?

Had a much better score with the card that i RMA but the card only OC to 1350 on LN2 bios and the mem was horrible at OC in the other one. Does some one know why? I mean is this card damgd goods?

1411 mhz is not damaged goods, seems very nice. if you clock the mem too far you get poorer scores, try with stock mem and work up. your physics and combined scores are really holding your score back.

I will check again tonight what in game setting I have but I'm sure I have maxed it out.

Yeah I double-checked as well. I don't have anything exceptionally demanding set in the drivers through Inspector or anything like that. And I checked the in-game settings, all of them are all the way up. Tom's used MSAA for their bench runs, I'm using TXAA. Tom's probably didn't use it because they wanted a fair comparison with the AMD cards, which makes sense obviously. But yeah I'm using TXAA, everything else maxed or enabled except FXAA. Have 120hz set in the settings but the framerate caps at 125fps, so I bounce between 115fps-125fps with a constant 75%-90% load on each card. Neither card hits 100% and no CPU cores are either, so, not sure why I don't get a constant 125fps. But yeah it's actually a pretty demanding game compared to the other ones. First COD I used SLI for wink.gif

The sliders are offsets adding voltage. You can set them all to the max if you want, to find your max overclock, but for gaming it's usually more practical to find some middle ground with the clocks and voltage so you're not putting so much voltage through the card 24/7.
