Believe all the Lightnings do this. It's voltage added by MSI for stock
OC. Most Lightnings should hit 1150 without adding any more voltage. Try bumping core with stock voltage until it just starts to artifact and then a bit more voltage to gain stability. Use Valley, Heaven, or 3dMark to test. AMD chips will usually start to slightly artifact before a crash. In fact I don't think I've ever totally crashed an AMD gpu. Usually turns out to be a driver issue if you're experiencing a crash.

Just done a clean install, will test in a moment.

I didnt crash yestarday, just black flashes when running firestrike extreme.

Will post results as soon as i can.

What voltage would be safe for 24/7?

Thanks

This would depend on who you ask, but for me, 1.26v for 24/7. I usually keep a mild overclock for gaming and save what's in the tank for benching. It also depends on temps.

That would be how much in mv offset? Since by default is already +63mv

Depends on the card. My card reads 1.22v on load with default voltage and 1.25-1.26v on load with +100mv. Some may say it's okay to use more voltage, but that's what I'm comfortable with. Do yourself a favor and pick up a cheap digital multimeter and use the middle read point on your Lightning to measure your voltage. Make sure it has at least a 20V setting.

Well, it seems that this card is a dud, the stock voltage is way too low, never past 1.181v peak in AB, normaly under 1.14v. At stock cant even do 1100mhz without some pink flashes in firestrike extreme.

Try running at stock and see if that passes without issue. Also, try something else other than Firestrike Extreme and see if the issue is happening in other benches. Definately sounds like it is throttling if AB is anywhere in ballpark on voltage. What is your asic%? Do you have the 3rd power connector plugged in?

My Asic is 79.1%. At stock it does fine without any issues. If i run Heaven it does fine at 1133 stock voltage, but firestrike extreme is more demading on the GPU. Yes, i have all 3 power connectors pluged in.

Hmmm. I don't know what to tell you. Seems like you've done a lot of troubleshooting. It doesn't seem to be getting the voltage it needs. You should need in the 1.22-1.25v range for 1150-1200 on air.
Go into CCC and make sure that you have powertune enabled and that the power limit slider is corresponding with what you are putting in AB.
