MSI GTX 780 Lightning Overclocking Horribly - Page 2

post #11 of 18
All 780 Lightnings use the Elip memory I think, don't expect to get much out of it. I would personally try bumping the ram speeds back down a lot, try to get more out of the core. The card is held back by voltage, you can get more from Rbby's voltage tool if you wanted, but personally I can game stable at 1208 core 1576 mem with +25 on voltage. This is on sky's bios, on stock I would bump one thing and it was unstable.

Thank you, man, for those tips.

I'll try those settings and bios.

I am testing stuff myself right now. Found the power percent actually does work with sky's bios? I set it to 300%, set core to +25, and during BF3 the card started shooting to 126% tdp, 1.38 volts core, and got to 87 C. Is this normal? Has this always been the case or is the power percent actually working with the new drivers/afterburner?

It seems that I reached a stable overclock.
thanks to bond32, that lighted up the path. biggrin.gif

I'm using Sky BIOS on default BIOS and using the same target clock that I was trying before and it's flawless so far.

I have changed the power limit to 176% and a little more mV to the core:



I haven't noticed if the TDP has changed. I'll look for it and comeback with more info.


Thank you for the tips.

Nice clocks. I'm trying to get some rep so I can post in the market, getting close!

Nice clocks, I finally got mine to overclock beautifully as well. My current stable is 1312MHz on the core and 1657MHz on the memory! Rbby258's tool was used to bump my core voltage to +125mV though. I hit a maximum temperature of 71C with a warm room under 100% load. So far no issues with about five 3DMark FireStrike runs, three Uniengine Heaven runs and about two hours of Battlefield 4 gaming! Scored 10618 in FireStrike on 3DMark as well, overall I'm pretty impressed!

I am a total newbie what comes to overclocking a GPU (my CPU is well overclocked though).
I have tried some similar settings that you guys have used, but there is always the same problem.
The overlocking works perhaps 30 seconds and then my benchmark program either fails with an
error message or the clocking is just returned to the original level.

Is the only way to overlock this GPU to use that new "Sky" bios? blinksmiley.gif
I looked at the official 780 lightning thread. What does Hynix or non Hynix memory mean?
How do i know which bios i should download? How do i update the bios of the 780 lightning?

Sorry about the stupid newbie questions... redface.gif

Skyn3t VBIOSes have 2 type, the one with hynix memory and the other with non hynix memory, you need to find your memory type by open "Nvidia Inspector" and point your mouse to memory type smile.gif it will show your memory chipset.
Updating VGA BIOS especially Nvidia is simple, you also can run it via windows smile.gif just download the program in >>Techpowerup.com<<.
