hey awesome I needed this too for new bios...the 4gb cards I have suck at being overclocked. hoping some more volts. will help

is it ok to push to 1.21v as long as it stays under 70c correct?

edit: when i set the voltage to manuall 1.21v with 122% the overclock on the gpu goes back to stock.... remove the manually set voltage and the overclock comes back but the cards won't get past 1.15- 1.7v at all.

am i doing something wrong here?

They both go to 1202MHz on my cards. The bios on the first page seems to hold it's overclock when it jumps up, Where this new one jumps around alot more. I wanted to try the newest bios that I know of, And I think the one on the first page might be better for me. Can't hurt to try both of them, And see what one you like better thumb.gif
If your card can't do 1202MHz you might want to put up your stock bios, And just get the voltage bump.

Well you are going to be pushing more then EVGA wanted you too, So there's always a chance something bad could happen.
I know with my cards 1.21v is not the best idea on air, Because my cards run really hot with the stock cooler even at 80% with just 1.175v.
My cards will be under water next week, So that will fix my temp problems biggrin.gif

Edit: Your overclock and voltage will drop when it's not needed just like stock.

It's probably jumping around a lot because everything was 'upped' except the power target which is stock, so you're being throttled. The one you were using I think I made and that was 200W.

Here's one if you're interested, it's: 1202Mhz / 3500Mhz, 200W (100%) @ 1.21v (version 80.04.4B.00.F1).

add: I'm pretty sure we have the same cards. At your own risk as always, I don't create BIOS files for others incase for some weird reason it causes a problem. I recommend you create your own with the tools and knowledge provided here.

So the stock 122% power won't give 200watts? I would like to edit my own bios, But im just not sure what all the settings do when editing it yet.

Edit: Seems you where right, I took my stock bios and used the V3DT online bios editor. Now my 100% power target is what the stock 122% power was, And 116% gives the full 200w the card can put out. thumb.gif

Do you think it's dangerous to go over 225w though ?
Will the card ignore pci-e cable standard and try to use more if it needs it?

It is by no means dangerous to go higher than 225watt, you can do that, there is another setting (hardware or software) that will limit it, and we haven't been able to avoid this yet. The card won't draw more than the PCI-E spec, although it should (technically) be able to.

Question about throttling tho, is throttling considered when Heaven freezes for a min fans cut off n then it comes back up and picks up where it left off? If so then that the only thing i have got when oc'ing my 670 and im guessing adjusting def mW will make this go away?

Its my fault, I am sorry, your card needs voltage set to 1.18v not 1.21v.
Throttling is when your card stops running at 1241mhz and starts underclocking to lower speeds. If its not happening, then you dont need to edit anything alse smile.gif
Just make sure you test stability properly.
Freezing in Heaven should not be happening. Its probably sign of unstable overclock. Back down memory first, 7160 is above avarage overclock. If it still happens, back down gpu clock by entering for example -50 in evga precision.
To test stability properly, you need to leave Heaven running for hours. Just one-two runs is not enough. Also, play games like Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3. I found Far Cry 3 to be sensitive for core overclock ,if you can play it for an hour, core is stable.
You can also try old 3mark06 and loop test called Canyon Flight. I know this doesnt make sense at first, why would 7 year old test be able to test new cards properly ?
But it does. It tests both core and vram stability. It is so intensive, then you can only loop it for 10-15 minutes, if it doesnt crash or artifact, your card is stable

Ok, thanks for explanation !

Stability testing 101: Play games, if you crash you are unstable, if you don't, you are stable. If you get artifacts, your memory is too high, if you don't, they are not too high.

It is my humble opinion, that people take GPU stress testing way to seriously.... Heaven 4.0 crashes my memory overclock in less than 30 seconds, but i have never seen a crash, nor artifacts, in any game...

First of all, most of your questions are not simple! On this BIOS, you will most likely be running a stock clock speed of 1306.5mhz. Dropping the values in BIOS does by no means change the overclocking results. Yes, you might have to put the values into the negatives in MSI afterburner, but this isn't a very big deal, since you will still be running at a way higher clock speed, than you use to. Really, you shouldn't worry about that. If you are unstable, you drop the clock speeds, if not, you can try to raise them. Nothing has changed from the "standard manor".
The memory isn't overclocked, so that should be overclocked "in a standard manor", no reason to put that in the negatives.

As long as you make a backup of your original BIOS (there is a backup at techpowerup as well), you can always reflash that one - and it is impossible to discover it has ever been messed with! wink.gif

Really, just go ahead and flash it, we will be more than happy to help you out!

Thanks for the go ahead iRandomize. I have flashed the BIOS for my MSI 670 PE and all seems OK except for certain readings. You mentioned that the stock clock speed would be 1306.5mhz. This was what I got after the flash.

GPU Clock - 1202mhz Memory - 1502mhz Boost - 1098mhz

The boost seems kinda weird. Any ideas?

Additionally, started the overclock somewhat, and have only been able to crank the GPU Clock to 1277hmz on +100 voltage. Heaven 4.0 bombs if I go any higher. Power also maxed!

That seem alright or am I missing anything?

Yeah, but its not always as easy as it sounds.
I did exactly as you advice, and ignored the fact that my memory would artifact in 3dmark06 ( it didnt even crash Heaven 4.0- I run it for 2 hours, no single artifact or crash )
I am playing Far Cry 3 now, after about 10 hours of gameplay it crashed ( two session of about 5 hours over 2 days)
I left core at stock just to test if 3dmark06 results regarding memory artifacting have any meaning - and they have.
When I just got my card, I played Far Cry 3 for about 20 hours without single crash or issue. ( without any overclocking )

All these stress runs and benchmark do is expose unstable overclock much sooner, if card is unstable if will crash sooner or later in some game
Only difference is you can know within an hour or even sooner, or you can know after 10 hours or even more playing games

If Heaven 4 crashes in less then 30 seconds, not only is your memory unstable, but it is really, really unstable smile.gif
I gurantee you that you will have problems in some game sooner or later

EDIT : I just tested Far Cry 3 with memory overclock so high it would crash/artifact in Heaven after 30 seconds...
I played it for about 7 minutes until I was back at desktop smile.gif
Did you try playing Far Cry 3 with so unstable memory OC ?

It really seems Far Cry 3 wins by far as the best game to test gpu overclocks-its sensitive to both memory and gpu unstability smile.gif
