This piece of **** is voltage locked too mad.gif

My previous cards were 2 x Gigabyte GTX660 and those were bad overclockers too, but i decided to give one more change to Gigabyte and this is it.
This sure is my last Gigabyte card.buttkick.gif

Tbh mate i never buy MSI out of principle ... i consider them a low quality brand (tons of marketing but little substance)... I always advice against MSI, all this from previous intersections with this brand. Go with sapphire or asus...or gigabyte... If you want unlocked voltage im not sure which are not voltage locked... maybe some else can shed some light on this.

Yes, the toxic stock voltage is 1.256. This is great. I would prefer not using a overclocking software like Afterburner or Trixx as they just add overhead. Letting my Toxic run in all day today to settle in. I will see how far I can push the core and memory tonight with afterburner. I read that some are hitting 1900 (7600 eff.) on the memory. Hitting 1800 now.
Not sure if the Toxic is voltage locked, See tonight.

So Cool Mike, can you irrevocably confirm that the voltage is locked at 1.256 on the toxic sapphire 280x and can not be modified at all ?cigar.gif

With new cards you are best burning them in a bit, normal gaming for a week will work out the kinks.

That's just to show that their max voltages are different. I'm not using such lol
post #540 of 9745
Wait a damn second ... Asus is adjusting the voltage on each card so that it can match the advertised clocks ?...that cant be... can it ?
Cause if it actually needs THAT much voltage to reach those cloaks then it would mean that the chips are kinda weak... right ?.. im just finishing here dont shoot me.
It would also mean that the chips on the Sapphire Toxic are top notch as the voltage is default at 1.256 with 1100 mhz / 1150mhz BOOST.
