Its a load line fluctuation based on GPU load, the higher the load the higher the voltage. Fluctuations within a given range are totally normal. What kind of fluctuations are you seeing with your DMM?

I tried to Max the voltages (Core Voltage +100, Power Limit +133 and Memory Clock +100), put the core clock +50 and memory clock +100....... and when i'm playing BF3 it starts to mess my game. Can't overclock at all.

Can someone help me? I won't flash the bios because i'm worried it might damage my cards, i live in Brazil, bought the cards on Amazon, so if something goes wrong i'm really screwed.

My system:
i7 960 (OC'ed to 4.0mhz)
12 GB RAM corsair dominator GT (OC to 2000Mhz)
Asus rampage III extreme Mobo
HD WD Velociraptor 750gb

I want to overclock at least +50 on core clock and +100 memory (running on SLi, it's giving me a lot of trouble)

Reset all your overclocks. Run stock. Follow the flash guide on page 1. You really have nothing to be comcerned about you have 2 cards each with 2 bios that's a large safety net.

The biggest issue is getting faulty bios for a failed flash. The unlocked 3a bios on the page is solid I used it to flash my 2nd card.

The difference between locked and unlocked is usually right around 100mhz.

And you gave because of that 3 stars to the card? C'mon, you should have known they needed a good flashing. Once you do it you'll see how well they overclock rolleyes.gif

Anyone knows what does aux voltage do? Because I have no idea and increasing it seems to do nothing.

No idea what it does but couple of pages ago it was written that reduce it (like - 50/-100) could improve stability. Since then I set it to - 50 and totally forget about it, still don't know if it help.

Aux is just an additional voltage to the core. All Lightnings unlock this option in AB (used it quite a bit with my old 7970 Lightnings)...

Yep, I posted this a long time ago. It works for some cards, not all. It yielded an extra 15Mhz on the top end for me.

Its the phase locked loop voltage

Aux voltage its one of the features that let you oc the pll of the card (memory bus etc) so you can get more stability during extreme overclocks, Idk if actually works on this cards but well, something extra.

About the voltage problems of the drivers its something that is killing me because when I'm playing for example Farcry 3 and its loading the voltage goes up to 1.3v and when Im in-game the voltage drops instantly to 1.275-1.285v and if I push the card to 1430mhz on the gpu clock the voltage drops to 1.250v making this impossible. mad.gif

What exact "connector" do you need for the EK block?
