I have this weird issue with my card/AB.
I run the A3 unlocked Bios version.

If i use any other version of afterburner than 2.2.3, e.g 2.3.1, the whole thing becomes unstable. Even with the same specifications as i used with 2.2.3. I start getting In-game errors, artifacts and what not.


Any solid answer to as why this is happening, or should i just stick to 2.2.3?

So decided to give the latest AB a try, 2.31 and well...it does not seem as relatively stable at all when compared with 2.23. I run a mild overclock of +105 on the core and +105 on the memory not running any voltage hack or edit to the msi config just +100mv on the core (+93mv when applied) , power limit 300, +100mv on the mem, and aux at +50. Have always used these setting with 2.23 and any time i have problems it seems to be driver related not my overclock. Has anyone also noticed the instability with 2.31? I just ended up reverting back to 2.23.

Also it seems sometimes the majority of my crashes stem from AB itself especially in games like Black Ops 2, when i run AB and the game crashes the game tends to re-open itself immediately upon a crash. Anyone else experience this?

EDIT: I guess i could set my AUX voltage to 0 ? I have been reading people have better stability with AUX set to 0 ?

Hey guys, i've actually been using 2.2.3 forever on my lightnings - 2.2.4 did not support voltage offset.

Is this still the case with 2.3.1? I was under the impression that to over-voltage, you had to stick with 2.2.3. Or did that change?

Also: if you're experiencing crashes disable all onscreen overlays. They can cause crashes on some systems, especially the origin overlay. There are a few games where I have to disable the afterburner overlay as well.

Thank you i will check this out about the overlay crashes.

I have also been using 2.23 forever, i have also noticed not as stable even with the same settings. See my post above yours.

Yeah, definitely give that a shot smile.gif The Origin ingame overlay especially - is notorious for causing crashes, that has been the biggest offender for me.

2.3.1 works great and holds your volts and oc between reboots.

Gotta do this:

Go to: My Computer -> C:/ -> Program Files (x86) -> MSI Afterburner -> Profiles

Unwinder:
add the following lines there-

[Settings]
VDDC_Generic_Detection = 0
VDDC_CHL8318_Detection = 46h
VDDC_CHL8318_Type = 1

If you can't edit the file, right-click the config file and go to 'Properties', then the 'Security' tab, then click on your User name for your PC and click 'Edit'. Then click your User name again and check the box that says 'Full Control' and click 'Apply'. This should give you full privaleges to edit the file. Edit both config files if there are 2 there, each card's file needs to be edited if you have 2.

You must enter this for each GPU if you have more than one.

No version other than 2.2.3 works properly for me. I get graphic errors and artifacts and gfx card resets using other versions.

I'm using the latest AB (2.3.1), and it works fine after the cfg edit. Running a 24/7 overclock of +155 core clock, +600 mem with +63 core voltage and mem voltage on stock. I can push it to +230 core with 100 core voltage.

^^ thats a nice chip you have their.

I ended up getting another 680 lightning for an sli config. I didnt really need it right now since i only have a 1080p monitor, but it was my plan all along to get another one later as an upgrade when new gen games came out. But after hearing that the sabertooth might have a problems with sli lightnings (space and overheating), i just had to try it out. Im happy to say that it works flawlessly. I have a c70 case with 3 intakes, 2 exhaust fans. The top card gets up to 73 and bottom card 63 after a couplenof heaven 4 runs at stock. OCed, 80 and 70 with a custom fan profile. Not bad really.

One thing i learned the hard way was that the f8 bios doesnt work on some of the newer cards. My new card has a "#1in germany" sticker where the 3 year warranty sticker was on my older card's packaging . Enabling sli with the f8 bios crashes my pc and afer it restarted, windows would come to a craaaaaaawl. Very strange behavior.

Im still debating whether or not i should have 2 680s at the moment. I get nice benchmark nunbers, but in games i see no difference. I thought i would see a big gains in crysis 3 atleast, but im starting to realize that crysis 3 has optimization problems that even an OCed sli 680s cant overcome.....Decisions decisions....
