Help with GTX 760 Hawk

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a GTX 760 Hawk today. I switched the BIOS to line 2, downloaded the latest Nvidia drivers, and downloaded the latest MSI afterburner beta version. I know that you can set the power limit to 185% but for me, it is stuck on 111%. I tried all of the settings, searched google, uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and afterburner. Basically have been trying to figure this out for 4 hours and this is my last resort. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong as to why it won't let me set the power limit to 185%? I set to unlock voltage control and that works fine, but the power limit is stuck on 111%. Thanks in advance! I will post pictures below, it might help.

MSI has removed the high power limit on the hawks.

Wow, guess I will return it then. The thing can't even overclock at 20+ MHZ the base without crashing. What a disappointment.

Thats not possible. Something is up. Try flashing a custom bios. I have one. Will upload when I get home

Thanks for the help, but it isn't worth going through all of that. I already shipped it back to Amazon earlier today.

Ya, that doesn't sound right. MSI wouldn't ship a GPU clocked at the brink of instability.

Doing what right? I explained what I did, with pictures. I tried both LN2, as well as LN1, restarted each time. Did a clean install on the drivers restarted, twice. uninstalled re-installed afterburner, twice. Set the voltage up 12, set the power limit to 111%. Temperature on the card never reached more than 60 degrees. I set the core clock to +20, the memory to +100. This was stable, anything over even a +5 core clock increase would crash in furmark, heaven, and any graphic intensive game within about 2 minutes. Leaving furmark running for about 30 mins with the stock settings, was fine. But if I clocked to 25+ it would crash. This is with a 750 gold standard PSU and since the temps never reached +60, i don't think it was an issue with power or overheating. I even left the power and voltage at default and tried to clock it 25+ it would still crash. I basically tried everything.

he's newly joined, with 4 posts ... probably just to ask for help, and probably will never come here again (till he needs help again)
and his attitude is disgusting,
just ignore him
