What is the max voltage? Because I read that the stock bios is locked at less than 1.21v?


With the stock BIOS you can add +100mV in Afterburner right out of the box, so that is already 1.25V.  You can go higher than that with Rbby's modded AB, I've tested mine up to 1.35V, others have gone higher.

Ok, thanks.

So other than using this tool there is no way to give the card more than 1.25v? Not even with the SE Afterburner for the Lightning series?

  If there is, I wasn't able to figure it out.  Even switching to the LN2 BIOS on the card didn't allow me to add more than +100mV with Afterburner beta 18.  They got rid of the separate Lightning version of AB after beta 15, now its just an option you set in the AB settings, set to "Extended MSI", and I still was only able to do +100mV.  I had to use Rbby's modded AB to add 200mV when I tested 1.35V.

The later ones were using Hynix, but there are probably still earlier cards with Elpida on the shelves, so hard to say what someone might get when buying a card.

There are a couple methods only they involve a soldering iron. The 780 Lightning does have the connection points to use Elmor's EVC which works similar to ROG connect (it's a USB device, plug into a USB port & control settings from software there), but it is still 3 solder points.
Or a regular hardmod using a variable resistor.

There is software for unlocked voltage but it isn't publicly available.

Have been following this thread since purchasing my 780 Lightning and wanted to ask you guys have any of you modded the blue led's that run along the back of this card? I put black electrical tape inside the reactor to stop that glowing blue but still have to look at the blue led's on the back of the card which I hate.

My Build is yellow and black themed so having blue led's is not ideal. Any ideas on how to remove or turn these off?

You gotta void the warranty likely to get rid of the light.
