^^ Not really on topic, but I'll pay more money sometimes to get my goodies from Amazon over Newegg, because Amazon gives you a shipping label and issues a refund without any question.

My story with Newegg that soured me on them was when I bought a cooler and one of the screws snapped in half when I was tightening it down...wasn't even gorilla-handling it or anything. Their response was "it's damaged so we won't take it back". No Newegg, I wouldn't have damaged it if it wasn't defective in the first place.

Just an fyi to all the new peeps getting dud cards....I had a dud card and sent it back to msi and the one they sent me back is a beast. It is stable at 1300/ 7000 with no voltage bump. I flashed the ln2 bios and now I am 24/7 gaming stable at 1385/7200 and can bench at 1400/7200. Not to say every rma will be this good but thought I would mention it.

Hi, I followed the instruction on first page, but after I installed the "old" unlocked BIOS, something went wrong and the screen got tore apart. I had to use a USB to boot to DOS and install the "new" unlocked BIOS. Is there something wrong with this "new" unlocked BIOS? Why did the OP tell to use the "old" but not "new" one?

So I got it installed, things seem ok, but the Core Voltage (mV) still only can hit 100 max. How do I increase it to 150 and more? I tried Art Money on AB 2.2.3, it worked, but not on the new AB 2.3.1.

I tried to push the Core Clock to 94, and Memory Clock to 147, things seem to run stably, but if I push it any higher, it crashes, I guess because of the lack of Core Voltage.

Is this a very low score? Or is it normal?

So I know this may sounds like a dumb question but....is the LN2 bios the second bios stored on the lighting (the one you switch to for overclocking), and if so should that LN2 bios unlock your voltage control (i bought mine today my replacement will be here tomorrow) do you or do you not have to mod afterburner to gain voltage control with a newer model lighting? If anyone can explain in a short but informative manner that would be awesome.......Im new to the lightnings I just switched from a twin frozr III.......bit of a learning curve.

the ln2 bios used to unlock voltage. newer cards don't have this unlocked voltage, so you will have to flash an old unlocked ln2 bios found on the front page onto your card.

The next step is to download afterburner 2.2.3 to be able to adjust the unlocked voltage, or you can mod the profile on a newer version of afterburner to be able to adjust it.

Glad someone else is having this problem. I'm doing an RMA on it right now with amazon. Should get it on friday.

Edit: Random thought. I can Run SLI with both crads over the weekend and see if I like the performance boost... Hmm

How do these cards do under water? I'm really considering picking up a pair.

What types of clocks can you expect? Voltage control sounds like it could be fun.
