Btw, does anyone know if the Swiftech Uni-block MCW82 will fit this card w / o a spacer / shim ? I'm using those with great success on my 780 Ti Classies, aided by triple Silent Typhoon 3k for VRAM / Power section - VRM temps on the Classy never went above 45 C so far w/ 20 c ambient.

...btw, the last time I used the MSI AB (18), it said it would expire March 28 headscratch.gif

No shims are needed for this card.

thumb.gif ...thanks, that makes me very happy, got an extra Uni-block already...the MSI-included little metal plate w/ thermal pads then is ideal for uni-blocks ?! Also, I'm cooling the back-plate of my Lightning w/ extra fans already as I do with all my cards > seems to help VRAM just a bit.

EDIT: Tx sugarhell for the link

I also placed directions on the op. To increase change the 10 to 20, ect. ect. Many thanks to sugarhell! As good info comes in, I'll continue to add tips, tricks, and helpful info to the op.

Thanks again for the extra info guys...

...also, I just tried out the Rbby tool (163+ / 163+ / 50+) per below...manually kicked up the fans to 97%...over 1300 core / over 1700 VRAM...certainly wouldn't want to call that bench-stable as I only ran that mini-GPUz test, nor did I necessarily max the clocks for the extra voltage, but once water-cooled, this tells me that the Lightning has some big reserves smile.gif

Wow, my powercolor 290 is jealous.

Just a heads up. If you want minimal/simple. Sapphire's Trixx latest version of overclocking software works well with the lightning. +200mV max is native. No memory voltage adjust though. +163 core gets 1200 Core and 1650 memory for me.
