But, the point is, that the Lightning will be just fine at 1.35v.
Would be supersweet to go 1.4v, and 1400+MHz, even if the gains are small.

might that Galaxy card be adjustable with this afterburner update? and I remember someone asking the same of the ASUS top a few pages ago...

But GOSH it is AMAZING how happy we are all feeling right now LOL

From the reviews I've seen on the Classy with EVBot it doesn't look like additional voltage helps Kepler much. I think that some golden chips just may hit 1400MHz but most will still probably be in the high 1200MHz to low 1300MHz range even with added voltage. Just my guess....

EDIT - Lol at the thought that software voltage control will allow anything like 1400mV! You'll be lucky to see 1300mV (Anandtech said that the EVBot only allowed for 1275mV in their review). EVGAJacob has said repeatedly that Nvidia is very much against voltage manipulation and MSI isn't going to allow you guys to start blowing up and RMA-ing your Lightnings....

I agree with your statement Majin. I think 1.4V could be tops but beyond that, you'd probably need a mod. Why do you ask? That many volts in a GPU will absolutely positively fry it.....LN2 benchers go in that territory, not normal air OC'ers wink.gif Heck even LN2 people don't go 1.7-1.8V.

OCCP is disabled on the LN2 BIOS. Classified has OCCP protection, Kepler throttle, 131% power, and 3300rpm fans at 55% (the max) Lightning has no OCCP protection, no kepler throttle, 4300rpm fans, and 200% power biggrin.gif

When they're on even ground in terms of voltage adjustment oh baby.

I would think 2.2.3 has to give us at least 1.35v. Any less than that and...what's the point? Doesn't the LN2 BIOS already read around 1.269v with a DMM? They would go through all this trouble making the card and getting the software adjustment to work just for 30mv?

I'm pretty sure they will give us at least 1.4V. We'll have to wait and see though - unwinder isn't stupid, he knows that we reach 1.25V already wink.gif I put my faith in him.

Imagine what your cards will do with 1.4v boxing3.gif

You were lucky enough to get 2 great cards. Can't imagine what your Graphics Score will be for SLI after water+1.4v

well you gotta take into account that the anantech review used the lowest of the 3 bios switches......

but I think it's still all bs considering NVIDIA is limiting these overclocks. They probably said "nobody allow software voltage change, that way we can keep the manufacturing process at a bare minimum and not actually put in lots of quality power phases"

HUGE step back from nvidia....they're supposed to be pushing the boundries..not releasing Gk104s frown.gif

I could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure the classified does not have a dual or triple BIOS. It definitely does not have an unlocked BIOS like the lightning does.
