Bf4's not getting below 60fps! I'm so freking happy right now! That special copy would be nice though. I have my core clock at 1125 and mem clock at 1447. Need the core volt to do anything else. But i'm a noob at overclocking so i'm trying to to F#&* up.

Ya. Well I don't know why you wouldn't plug in the 6 pin but you want to adjust voltages. I mean. Seems to me like providing the card with stock power should be a logical first step.... They didn't give everyone voltage control so that noobs wouldn't fry their cards and return it to MSI. I mean. I killed a card before. But it was 150 bucks. Frying a card is easy. Don't just bump voltages and expect it to work better. Plug in the 6 pin then retry overclocking. You will not be voltage limited on this card on air. Not until we get waterblocks and a ton of rads before we should ever have to bump voltages. You are a gamer as am I. Don't try to set a world record as there is people who get paid to do that. Plug in the 6 pin, re-adjust your OC and sit tight. No need to voltage bump on air.

I like people like you :-) I was planning on plugging it in. I'm just doing the initial test. I wasn't planning on OC any more than I did for the simple fact I really don't know what i'm doing. I'm surprised I got my cpu to 4.5...

Lol sorry to be blunt. Obviously its just my opinion and you may not agree. But I gave my reasoning for my opinion and tried to justify it. I also gave you the best advice I could lol. Expect to get about 1150+. 1200 seems to be like 75th percentile. 1225 is something idk if I have seen yet, on air that is.

On air in very warm room I think mine did about 1175 through firestrike extreme. On water it did 1200, but at that point was limited by voltage.

Thanks!

So far - 1175 / 1550 is making it through Unigine Valley and 3DMark runs. 1200 gets me crashes/artifacts. I'm using the "standard" MSI AB, hoping the unlocked voltage version will get me some additional gains. I have Samsung GDDR5 - is that every one of these or are some Hynix?

have you tried Trixx? this is just an example with 2 open to show Power Li (Power Limit). I only use this to bench and have achieved 1320/1620 (watercooled) in some benches on my reference MSI 290. you will have to set the fan manually to 100% when bencing.



i've seen the VDCC go as high as 1.41v at load with 200 offset.

Neliz said MSI was working on getting you guys +200mV in AB for the 290X Lightning I believe.
