I'm asking because no matter what I set voltage table when I mod my 680 bios still in game it does not exceed 1.21v. I know reference card and also reference boards have hardware limit of 1.212 on 680 but my lightning 680 and its bios is the LN2 which is supposed to "disable" those caps.
The 1.21 is right for referance type cards , its capped "but" you have lightening and if you use MSI AB and you have MSI extended voltage control .
I think it goes a little higher (1.275v ?), but it been along time . You can tell its in right mode cause you should see voltage for core, memory and Aux .

All that said i think it be best to check dedicated 680 lightening threads ,as its been a while i messed with kepler .

What is RC2? How does it differ from RC1 in the OP?

rc2 has slightly increased power because there were some power perfcaps on rc1 after the STB was sorted out

I raise voltage in MSI AB to 1.295v just fine!. The issue is that I want to tweak my 680 Lightning vBIOS (OC without MSI AB)

I posted there in the 680 Lightning thread but no answer there yet!
Here's my post their:
Hello guys,
I'm trying to mod my MSI GTX680 Lightning vBIOS using Kepler Bios Tweaker 1.27

After extensive testing, I found out that my card capability in MSI Afterburner 4.2 is as follows:
+61mV on core
+50mV on vram
Max power limit
+140 on core
+500 on vram

These settings ingame would effectively be:
Around 70%-75% power limit
1346mhz core
7000mhz vram
1.256v in voltage

These are rock solid settings in games like BF4 and GTA V and I'm happy with the performance.

My original vbios is the unlocked LN2 VBIOS that has stock all power limits to 600watt on 100%. So i did not tweak power table when modding the bios, it's quite enough for what I'm doing.

Now I'm doing everything in KBT 1.27 and doing voltage table as much as 1.26v in the boost clocks(I increased all the clock table voltages sliders above 1110 mhz to around 1.25v) then I flashed the bios but ingame and at 1346mhz it only reaches 1.205v and then crash to desktop.

Any help on that? And why msi AB ups the voltage to desired levels but tweaking the bios voltage does not?
I'm using last WHQL 361.75 on Win 10 pro 64bit

Thanks

I think I know what your issue is.. here's my best guess: I think your GPU's voltage controller is set to 1.212v by default. You cannot change that value using a BIOS. The MSI AB software is able to communicate with your voltage controller (meaning it is addressable) and modify the default value from 1.212v. You would technically need to have BOTH a MOD BIOS with voltage set at your desired voltage AND use the MSI extended voltage (addressing your voltage controller) to unlock your voltage to the value you specified in the BIOS.

Ah , Ok . If my memory is right, sorry you can't do it w/o AB , reason is the lightening (an other MSI cards) has an added voltage regulator that add's the offset voltage to ref regulator .
SO you need AB I am afraid , you can adjust other values in bios ,like clocks , power etc .

BTW 1346 is very good OC on kelper , be happy with those results.

SInce they all have Perf Caps... Is there any significant difference between V4BETAF4 and AIR_RC1F4_980TiG1. I mean... more voltage doesn't do anything for my 980 Ti G1. Why do i need AIR RC1 compared to V4 BETA F4 ? Thanks.
