This is true at least for the Lightning cards. New owners are having to flash to old an old bios and use an older version of Afterburner (2.2.3) to get the full unlock. I bet its something similar in this case. Try 2.2.3 first and then see if your BIOS might need some work.

You may try EVGA precision, I couldn't get MSI Afterburner's OC to register at all in the Kombuster benchmarks, nor did changing the voltage sliders seem to do anything either. However, my OC is about the same as your's in Precision, and I think I should be able to get higher with the 660ti MSI Power OC edition. I've been able to push it to about 1260mhz without even reaching 92% of TDP. If I can push it to the 114% TDP, that should translate to a few extra mhz than I'm getting, am I right?

I don't know if anyone has seen this, but on the Kombuster web scores page, there is someone posting over 100FPS scores (46 in the combined) in the X-Score 1080P benchmark! I can't even get half that!

For comparison, my Nickname is Mac Daddy.

I would very much like to know how I can pull more power out of my card.

My voltage is also stuck at 1.175 no matter what I do in Precision or Afterburner. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I am having this problem also. Despite moving the voltage slider up it makes no difference.

Have you tried this in EVGA Precision as well?

I haven't tried it yet, I have always used MSI Afterburner because it's always worked for me in the past. I Might have a crack at it afterwards smile.gif

Yes, You should always max out heaven settings when running benchmark to improve/narrow down stability.
