Here is the response that was posted to that very question in the LLC mod thread:

Doesnt work! This mod works with the voltage controller NCP4206/08, the lightning has a chill 8138 i believe, so no LLC control for the lightning i´m afraid!

You are gonna cause a blackout in your area trying to run those clocks. tongue.gif

Thanks a lot. All clear now.

I love that biggrin.gif


I was thinking 480 + 240 in the bottom, 360 in the top. Can I still fit a slim 360 in the front ? or I will have to settle for a 240 or a 120 monsta ?

I'm not sure that the middle fan does a whole lot of good. Have you tried using the Lightning specific fan adjustment tool and turn the middle down as low as it will go?

Hi, thanks for your response. Answers to your questions:

1. I am not sure if the middle fan spins up before Windows or not to be honest, as the PC is on the floor in a tight spot. I'll have to check. Another thing I still need to try is to flip it to the LN2 BIOS and see if that makes a difference.

2. Yes, I've tried the Lightning fan tool. It only goes as low as 30% and is still loud. When I turn it up to 100%, you can definitely hear more noise.

MSI is suggesting I RMA the card and says they believe the fan is bad. However, I am very reluctant to do that since I'm afraid I'll get another refurbed card back that could have other issues (plus this card has Hynix memory). Here are the options I'm considering:

Option #1: Unplugging the middle fan. Thoughts? I don't believe I will try overclocking it higher than the stock overclock.
Option #2: Scouring the forums of most major sites and see if anyone who has replaced their default Lightning cooler with a water block would be willing to sell me their old cooler so I can swap the fans out.

Option #2 is what I am exploring now. No hits on Anandtech so far, but I'll check Hardforums as well and I'll look here to see if there is a FS/FT forum and maybe post. Otherwise, if anyone here has their original MSI cooler laying around and you remember the middle fan being pretty quiet, PM me and maybe we can work out a sale. smile.gif

At the end it turned out good. I went full watercooling:)
I suggest to RMA the card or put water block on it.

Unless MSI can guarantee me my repaired card back or a new card in exchange, I don't think I want to risk an RMA. This card gets a decent ASIC score and has Hynix memory. I don't want to risk exchanging it for some refurbed card that may not be as good or worse, have to be RMAed again. I'd like to try to replace the middle fan so I'm looking for anyone selling their original MSI Lightning cooler or their middle fan (assuming it is quiet).

You could ofc have one of mine. But shipping Sweden to ? If you'll pay for the shipping you can have one of my coolers for free! Just send me a PM.

Neoroy posted a picture on this page actually. You can try unplugging the middle fan connector. It is the black one. You might try that first and see if it makes much difference with temps/noise if you are set on keeping this same card.

I don't believe a 360 will fit in the very front due to hole locations. I wasn't even able to fit the 240 in the very front with the way that I did my build. The alphacool rad ports stuck out too far and wouldn't allow a fit. It might have worked if I flipped the ports to the other end. I would have run into tubing routing issues then. I ended up attaching the 240 onto the hard drive cage with just push fans. I had plenty of room to do that. That made it necessary to place my two pumps right on top of the bottom 480 rad. Neoprene pads and thick Velcro ensure that noise transfer and movement aren't an issue though.

If you were willing to do the 480 in the top and lose the top 5.25 bay, then you could probably put a 360 and 240 in the bottom with the other 240 in the front. You definitely have options. I also had some of my tubing running behind the motherboard tray along with a swiftech micro res back there too.

Looks like a 1600MHz core Lightning on your hands if you do get that loop!

You are probably right. But since I have Elpida memory it would almost be pointless.... Oh well.. hopefully MSI decides to use all samsung in their Maxwell based Lightning. I have been extremely impressed with the power delivery system. It's been fun pushing her.

Elpida is mostly pointless in Valley, but 3dmark will still love to see your Lightning!

I just installed a 780L:

 

(awesome lighting and cell phone pic I know)

 

Mediocre ASIC quality % of 73.3, but whatever.

 

Validation.

 

Can I check to see what memory I have without taking the heatsink off?  I may anyway to replace the TIM if the temps are bad.
