This is absolutely untrue. Why would you even post this? All you get in that case is the overclock the card can achieve at stock volts. That is often not the max overclock it can achieve with added voltage. The gap can be as big as 200mhz or more on kepler cards.

once you mod to 1.212v it run that all the time, no need to adjust the volts cause that the max volts already.

You can do that, but it would be better to find the minimum voltage needed to keep the overclock you want to reduce heat and noise if you're air cooled. For example, if your chip won't go any higher than 1100mhz between 1.175v and 1.212v then there is no reason to apply that much voltage.

LOOL...I don't want to bash you, so i will just take it that you did not understand what i said lol tongue.gif.. As the guy above me has said, it will do that on it's own... Once you increase your TDP, your Kepler card will run at its max voltage when needed for it's Max Boost clock.

If your chip cant do that, then there would be no need to use the modded bios. Anyways, your chip will still run at 1.175mv with stock bios when needed.

I take it back, you're right. Most of my Kepler overclocking have been with custom PCB cards that actually have voltage control. Learn something new every day! Apparently only a handful of cards actually have full voltage control which has of course since been removed which I knew before, I had to flash one of my Lightnings to get the unlocked vbios.

Looks like most cards setting a voltage is more of a vdroop control and acts as the lower limit.

Just post my benchmark in valey, then i go sleep.
Tomorrow i will work more and flash the new bios, thank you yungbenny911!


Max boost 1150mhz
Memory clock 1600mhz
stock voltage, 110% power

69ºC in a MSI twin froz III ohno-smiley.gif
I never pass 65ºC before on this card, this valley is a a power stress test redface.gif

alright so its still ok if your card never goes up 104% TDP even if its set to 150%?
post #510 of 6755
Hey guys, I need help about the bios flashing thing.

1st) I never flashed a video card before, I was reading the xtremeforum trend about it but it was too simplified for me. I need detailed instructions . So if there's anybody willing to help me, please pm me or post the instructions here. I can't find it here either if ever somebody posted it.

So what I understood so far was:
1> backup the bios 1st
2> edit the bios (and save as rom file???)
3> flash the edited bios (correct?)
