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

Safe voltage don't exist. You need to keep it with good temperature.thumb.gif That's what i think.

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?

You can try this:

Anybody have Arma 3 Alpha? What kind of frames are you getting? I have been playing with settings and on the autodetect settings I get about 30-45 fps with the latest beta driver.

Okay, so my purchases are always a little impulsive. Research was done but in a hastily manner. I'll need some of you to enlighten me. I am an overclocking enthusiast but I come from the 500 series which was pretty standard. Raise volts, raise clocks.. None of this boosting stuff.

Quesitons:

The newer Lightning is locked at 1.175v max voltage (130%) for their LN2 bios (680 reference limit) unless you unlock the bios to an older one?

The Lightning bios has disabled Kepler boost? I read this somewhere, but I can't find anything to back this claim up.

Afterburner 2.2.3 is the last release that allows "official "voltage modification on the Lightning?

Voltage modifications don't stay upon reboot?

What are most of you keeping your voltage at for 24/7 operation?

True and that's what MSI rep said, you can find the quote somewhere here.

You are using a x79 plataform, i'm using z77. It is not fair. poke.gif
Well, It was some time ago and no tweaking as well as not watercooled cards, you can see the date of the score on my sig.
I will receive the missing pieces (res/pump) for my custom waterloop tomorrow, then I will update driver and games (ordered Crysis 3 long ago... pc not working on the release date, shame!).
I might finally be able to try your tweaking guide too (works for 3DMark11?), hoping to get 14k with 3DMark fire strike. I think this weekend will be very short rolleyes.gif
Looking Arma III and waiting for Tomb Raider to be somewhat optimized, seriously, right now it's bad (not talking about TessFX, but lighting effects working in windowed mode only...)

I'm damn sick of using my laptop stun.gif

Yeah, you will not be able to overclock much until you flash it with unlocked bios (you will be able to move the voltage cursor, but it will do nothing). Boost is not disabled, don't know where you saw that.
AB 2.2.3 is the only one that can be used without the modification of the card(s) profile, yes.
Voltages mod stay after restart but it's somewhat glitchy, sometimes it's reduce from the value you've input. Like when you put 100 then click apply and get 93. This does not happen with 2.3.1, and the few lines to add is no big deal IMO.

Hey guys,

Just sold my 670ftws and moved to a pair of proven 1400mhz+ 680 Lightnings. Just wondering after reading some comments from guys in other threads about which driver and version of Afterburner is best for overclocking them?

They both have unlocked LN2 bioses but I read some stuff about throttling on the latest drivers...

Thanks in advance.

IMO the best one is afterburner 2.3.1 with the .cfg edit. It works great for me even with overvoltage. You can use 2.2.3 as well.

Any preferences in regards to drivers?

I was reading an overclocking overview and it sounds like they really tried to streamline the overclocks with the kepler? Sounds like you don't have direct control of the voltages, just a percentage since it boosts itself up and down.

How exactly does the throttle work. Does it downclock from your overclock or just downclock from the boost after you overclocked.

Sorry for asking so many questions, just want to get prepared for tomorrow thumb.gif
