I have 3 cards, one is not a great overclocker, 2 do 1550 on chilled water, I am waiting on 2 7970's to arrive as i have played with the 680's since they were released so If the 7970's prove to be good cards I may be selling my 2 good cards, I installed the stock cooling back, although I have over volted and clocked them to no end, they still work as the day i purchased them I have blocks for them also, I plan on installing the one that doesn't overclock well in my son's pc. I had 2 Titans on preorder but cancelled when I seen that they basically all clocked the same and will play with the 7970's until msi releases the next high end Lightning.

Your posts almost made me not want to buy one. I've had a dud before from MSI with my 570 and their RMA is really poor.

I don't blame you at all but once I got one that was in working condition it was worth trouble.......if you plan to overclock.

Thats another reason to purchase through amazon they have great customer service and its very easy to get a replacement or money back.

Yeah I'm aware, but I also get charged an extra 50 dollar because they tax NY... I got mine from new egg because it was overall cheaper, and they ship it from NJ which arrives here in one day. Neweggs RMA isn't that great either, but I really didn't want to pay another 50 dollars.

I'm pretty sure those cards are binned anyways, so most of them should be at least fairly good overclockers unless you get some faulty one.

What kind of overclocks were people getting @ 1.175v? The original post does not include the voltage numbers.

I'm having a difficult time finding what safe voltages are for the 600 series.

I know this has probably been asked a million times, but google isn't helping me and I can't read 6000 posts.


Is it possible anymore to get the voltage above 1.215 (multimeter actually reports a little bit higher)? From reading it sounds like on the driver level it blocks over-voltage, so it doesn't matter even if you run an older version of AB. I've got the unlocked ln2 bios because I can get +300% power. Also for me I can set +100 Core Voltage and it appies no problem without reverting to +93. I don't see how to increase memory voltage, but I assume that's the cfg mod that's posted above?

Will do.... when my pc is ready, hopefully soon™.

Very nice.

I hit 19.876 today, i'm tweaking more it to hit 20k.

You are using a x79 plataform, i'm using z77. It is not fair. poke.gif

Yes it is still possible even with the latest drivers. The driver doesn't block it out - you have to use the afterburner .cfg edit so that overvoltage is applied properly.
