Am I doing something wrong? Even switching to the LN2 bios has it locked at 1.200 V, and I could get some more MHz on the core (currently 1492 stable on the core, haven't messed with memory yet until I nail down the core).

How do I raise it above 1.200 V? The voltage sliders (all 3) do nothing to my eye and when monitoring.

I currently have SLI Lightnings and I can only do 1.2V/1.187V (even at stock settings) when I try to overclock the voltage, it does not change it. Something does seem to be wrong with the Lightnings

Ok, what are you guys using to verify nothing's changing?

Afterburner, HWmonitor and GPU Z

Same, any tool I use (GPU-Z, afterburner 4.2, precision X...) will not report voltage above 1200 mV. Idk if that means it's not overvolting or undervolting or if it's not being monitored.

Best to get a DMM and use the connector to the voltage point at the end of the card... the top one thumb.gif

Do you have any advice on a cheap one or recommend one?

The ones i use are Yugo, but not sure if they are available where you are... You can go to a Electrical or Home Improvement store and have a look, and if your after cheap, around $10 - $15 you should be able to pick up a DMM for. You dont need to spend a lot on one.

I find HWmonitor and GPU-Z are not reporting the correct voltages. If you have Triple Overvoltage enabled with Ln2 switch on, and you enabled the Ln2 switch while the drivers are disabled in Device Manager > Display adapters, then you should get access to 1.3 volts.

Just remember, each card is different, and some cards do better with less voltage, and others do better with more voltage. Mine is a card that does better on less.

I could be wrong, but we don't have to go and edit the msiafterburner.cfg file with unsafe overclocking EULA statements do we?

The problem is any direction of change the voltage I apply doesn't change its higher or lower. Also is there anything I actually need to do to.enable triple overvoltage? I can adjust the auxiliary voltage and memory voltage sliders, is it automatically enabled?

If you can adjust them then yes, they're enabled already because it picked up your card type. You can enable monitoring of voltages through AB which is not enabled by default to check and see if the voltages are getting set. Another way to tell easy would be to set the voltage and watch if your GPU core temp starts rising because it will with a voltage increase, oh it will be noticeable too.
