The separate smaller heatsink plate? It is mainly for sub-zero cooling, where you don't want the full PCB heatplate getting too cold & getting condensation over in the power section, although it may have uses for other cooling solutions.

You would remove the stock heatplate & then install the MOS plate, they don't go on simultaneously.

Nice Link! Thanks! 19k @ 1220 is very impressive on 3dmark perf.. The ram oc seems to have helped a great deal.

Guys, my Lightning starts artifacting at around 1210 at +100mv on either bios. Has anyone modded a bios yet to get higher power limit and a bit more vgpu? Can someone detail exactly what to add to the shortcut to get +200mv?

I also found that my vid card doesn't like mem clocks above stock, performance seems to go backwards even at +50mhz ....

Thanks

It's somewhere in this thread try searching afterburner 200 or something but you basically change a hexadecimal line in the properties tab or something to change the max mV Afterburner can apply

Rbby's tool here http://www.overclock.net/t/1398725/unlock-afterburner-limits-on-lots-of-cards-some-with-llc-ab-b-18/0_50 works fine for voltage control as well, just have to check the 'enable +200 core' box to put in higher values.

Had a few runs with my card today:

Firestrike 1280/1500 It seems this is the highest for my GPU on air



Valley 1250/1700 This is the highest for the memory:

Nice scores! Can I ask what settings you're using in CCC for Valley? I feel like my cards are really underperforming in the benchmark. With 3 290x clocked at 1200/1600 I'm only getting 145ish fps on it. They are reference but still..

Everything on factory setting, i just set the cards clock and ran the bench

What were you looking for? I reviewed one... likely not up to your standards though... biggrin.gif
