Why don't you run hwinfo64 to show you're actually making some change? What are you afraid of? Stop looking at your intended voltage, it's meaningless.

I did run GPUz. At stock under load my voltage is 1.05v. At my overclock, its at 1.175v load. Increasing to 1.30v in MSI AB, I'm at about 1.25v under load (fluctuates between 1.25 and 1.28v).

Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for posting that. It worked flawlessly.

The orig exe version corrupted my bios on switch one. Had to revert, then this one worked like a charm. smile.gif

So I'm just wondering how many versions of the bios are out there?

That was confusing.

What does hwinf064 show under load using for ex. furmark? TBH, I don't care what AB shows. I only want to know what your intended voltage is and what hwinfo64 displays once that voltage is applied under 100% load.

Just flashed mine, successfully. However, something wrong with my driver even before flashing. I installed 12.7 on fresh Windows 7 but the driver not detected. 12.7 removed and 12.6 installed, driver detected correctly. However, I read somewhere that to enable Ghz feature, need 12.7 driver. Can someone verify me?
