You can use the softmod for higher voltage.
Also with the kepler bios tweaker you can raise your power target limits too.

Anyone know of a way to actually turn off this down-clocking on the 770's? (Preferably the MSI Lightning).

I've already OC'd, and edited my MSI AF to accept the OC and the voltage increase.

The only thing I still struggle with is games actually using enough of the card to boost it all the way up to my OC.

By default, my card runs at 1150 core, and my OC is set to 1306 core. In very intensive game, with high GPU usage, I get a steady 1306 on my core clock.

Now, when that doesn't happen, I will often get something in the middle....like 1254 core clock (that will fluctuate from 1150 to 1254 to 1306 and any random number in-between).


It really messes with my FPS. Is there a good way to turn this off completely?

I don't think it's in Afterburner, but in EVGA's Precision utility, there's a setting under the voltage menu labeled "K-Boost." Basically, what this does is forces the GPU to run at it's highest clocks all the time (i.e. 24/7 boost clocks). I don't recommend using it, though, as it means your card will run at its max clocks even when just using your OS or on the internet.

As for a setting or utility that will change this only when games/3D apps are running, I'm not sure one is out there.

Ya, I have used EVGA's utility before. This was before I had to mod MSI AF to be able to OC past a certain point, as well as add voltage control. I don't think you can do that with precision though.

Wish I could be a bit more help, but the last time I messed with anything past a software OC, I almost bricked my card. Luckily, EVGA's dual bios thing saved my ass.

Should I get an Asus CU II or a EVGA Dual OC? I'll be going with one of the 4GB versions (since it's only ~50 more) and the price point after MIR is nearly identical (~330) for the two. I like the looks of the Asus and it comes with a backplate already installed, but in terms of loading a modded BIOS and oc'ing I'm leaning towards the EVGA card.

The very noobish question of the day : what are the benefits in flashing a custom bios found on here ?

Just made the purchase of a Gainward Phantom 2GB instead of a MSI Gaming.. I chose it as I've read it was a better overclocker and performer, and not loud. But I didn't take into account that there are custom bios'es and mods for GC.
With its custom bios (and mods?) applied, choosing the MSI would have been a better move ? than a customised Gainward ( for gaming )

Haha, that's ok man, thanks for the help though.

Hopefully one day I will figure out how to do it. Just SUPER annoying when my card doesn't OC when I don't run a game that puts it under a lot of load. mad.gif

AFAIK Asus don't make a 4Gb and the only way to overvolt is a hard mod i.e. soldering
EVGA does have a 4Gb that can be software volt modded
as for 2Gb I game @ 5760x1080 I play BF4 AC4 Crysis3 @ "high settings" while keeping 60+FPS, 2Gb of Vram is enough IMO.
Ultra settings are simply too demanding for the core speed in 2 way SLI.

Man I wish I could get a def answer with this. Enough, not enough. I currently have 1 Asus GTX 770 DC2OC-2GD5 was thinking of getting 2 more for the new build for x3 sli. Only playin 1080p and have 2 matching monitors was getting ready to get the third so I will be playing in surround also. Also was thinking about picking up a bigger monitor for the middle and just have the 2 on the 1 each on the left and right for accessory monitors. Errrrr Too many choices. Just don't want to waste money. Cause this will be my rig until I can't play anymore at least 3-5 years.
