Hey guys, I recently received my GTX 770 Lightning (2nd one on the way for SLI) and I've recently encountered a slight problem with the voltage of the card.

I originally downloaded and used MSI Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 12 not knowing it wasn't for Lightning edition cards. I used it for a few days until I had realized that version wasn't for my card, but that version of Afterburner was actually reporting 1.20v as stock voltage when it boosted to 1241MHz.

Today I downloaded MSI Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 11SE, which is for the Lightning cards. This allowed me to add +100 to the core voltage but Power Limit was still limited to 109%. I started up Crysis 3 with everything stock, and noticed that my voltage while in game was boosted to 1.176v instead of the normal 1.20v when it boosts to 1241MHz. I've tried a couple other games as well, and still reporting a voltage of 1.176 instead of the 1.20v.

The thing is though, when I quit out of the game to go back to the main menu, the voltage shoots back up to 1.99v for a split second then the card goes idle due to it sitting in the menu.

Is this problem caused by this version of Afterburner? I'm not sure what to do here, i'm afraid to add voltage for an overclock while this is happening.

Any suggestions, and help is welcome. I hope to hear from someone soon on this issue.

EDIT: Forgot to add i'm on LN2 BIOS and driver version 326.41
