I have found 2 different ways of doing voltage, one is manual voltage and the other is using an offset voltage.
Offset will be the easiest one to use and likely the safest, and by default the controller already uses an offset of 18mv, this is why voltage set at say 1.3 reads as 1.32.
Query this command using MSI AB in a cmd prompt.( this is a read command, not a write)
You must have opened a cmd prompt in the MSI afterburner directory for this to work.
If it returns 03, that is normal. Let me know if its a different value.
If it returns 03, this command will allow you too add more voltage.
To test if it works for you run this command msiafterburner.exe /wi3,20,DD,00
00 means an offset of 0 volts(default is offset of adding 18mv).. If you were stable at 1202mhz(for example) than you should be unstable/crash in games because there are less volts. If the above works, you can add voltage.
The above command would add a total of 36mv.
Each bit higher returns an extra 6.25mv, 07 would be 42.5, 08 would be 48.5 and so fourth, up to a maximum of 200mv. The bold number is the value you change.
If you want a specific voltage, ask and i shall give you the correct value.
Above is a 780ti with an applied voltage of 1.375 on a reference EVGA SC ACX.
To make afterburner show voltages correctly you must do thisWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
First make sure you have latest msi afterburner beta. Go to msi ab directory > profiles. Add these lines under VEN_10DE and save. make sure AB is closed while you do this.
REFERENCE cards only
VDDC_Generic_Detection = 0
VDDC_NCP4206_Detection = 3:20h
After that, go to MSI AB settings, and click unlock voltage control monitoring.
Next, go to monitoring tab and scroll through and make sure voltage is checked.
This makes MSI AB read data directly from the controller and not through NVIDIA drivers.
Do note, adding too much voltage can potentially kill your card(essentially the inductors pop to protect the card from further damage)
This is at your own risk, people with water can potentially go as high as 1.45 volts(what i use 24/7), but i will not recommend you do so. Air cooled cards i recommend to stay at 1.25v or below.
