OK thanks,

I've submitted a request through their tech support for an RMA as I cant find any RMA forms for UK customers. I'll let you know what the outcome is


Thanks

Allright. I am in desperation MSI 460 GTX Cyclone 1 GB DDR 5 OC supports (according to MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 beta 6 manual) software voltage adjustment (it's fu*****in written at a box ).

Yeah, I can manually change with this slider but it's useless because when I hit apply button nothing changes. It has stuck at 1.012 V and doesn't go any further

I've tried to change drivers for these from MSI homepage 269.22 and nothing. I have tried all kinds of Nvidia drivers from 260.99 to 266.58 and still nothing!

I have even unlocked "Unofficial Overclocking" in MSI Afterburner but still no succes :[

So... What the hell is going on with it??? (sorry for swearing)

Anybody? Any ideas?

I can run all 3 cards overclocked at 865MHz at 1.050v w/out any issues. I have not had much luck pushing all of them at the same time past that while maintaing stability for f@h w/the low volts I use of 1.050v and I'm not willing to go any higher on the volts.
Well, I have tried to find out max of this card and it was sth around
Core: 865-870 MHz
Shaders: 1720 Mhz
Memory: (only) 1900 - 1930 MHz (which gives me 3880 MHz against default 3600 MHz)
I used 1.012 V because I can't go any higher with voltage :/

---

It is a beautiful card, especially heatspreader which cools down this card very quickly.
BTW! I made today some modification. Added one 120 MM fan which blows directly onto the card Under heavy load temperature stays at 60 - 58*C.

I know it looks not very professional but earlier the card produced so much heat that my PSU which is beneath the card was "boiling"



I have bought this model to utilize this overclocking potential (using voltage regulator). I have heard that in tests this model was able to reach 900 MHz (core) and 1980 (memory) and it was only on air.

So, any ideas what I do wrong or what I should do (right) to make this voltage adjustment work ?

Pendrago. Are you trying to use the MSI Afterburner software that came on the disk when you got the GPU? If so you need to google MSI Afterburner and download the most current version. This should allow you to change the voltage. You also have to select a check box to allow voltage adjustments in one of the settings windows.

No, I didn't try this version. The latest official release is 2.0 ...
I got 2.1.0 beta 6 ... does it mean it makes any difference?
Of course I have checked boxes Unlock Voltage Control and Unlock Voltage Monitoring and even (as I wrote) I have unlocked unofficial overclocking mode.

I will try with MSI Afterburner from my CD with drivers.

Hope it will work. Thanks

No the one on your disk will be an older version and prolly not work for you. Uninstall Afterburner and reinstall it. Ver 2.0 is what I use not the beta

Well, I can say that I panicked a little bit.
I have got MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 beta 6 and I can offically confirm that voltage adjustment at my MSI 460 GTX works just fine!!!

The solution was very simple. It is even written in readme file for MSI AB.
For this card I can rise a voltage up every 0.013 mV. Default voltage is 1.012 and I tried to set it at 1.015 and the slider just went back to 1.012 when I hit apply button. So, another value that I can up my voltage is 1.025 mV and then 1.037 mV.

So far I could overclock it to almost 900 MHz but with 1.037 voltage and there were some artifacts (unfortunately).
Stable settings are:
Core = 875 (880) MHz
Shaders = 1750 MHz
Memory = 1910 MHz
Voltage = 1.025 mV

So, my 3D Mark 06 score would be now: 21020
I took a screenshot but ... unfortunately I cannot submit my results to ORB (you can guess why

I just wonder what is the maximum safe voltage for this card.
You wrote that you run your cards having 1.050 mV ... so, another step would be 1.063 mV.

What I noticed is that everytime I rised my clock CPU score (in 3D Mark 06) was higher also.

Now it's only a matter of overclocking my CPU to 4.2 GHz or 4.3 and give and memory to 1700 MHz

I can recommend that card to everyone. Last night I played "Dirt 2" with Max details, resolution 1920x1200 and MSAA x 8 (Vertical sync was on).
Average FPS was sth around 50-55, so it is not so bad for a Direct X 11 game.

Wow such a super clean build. Congrats on the great overclock as well!

Do you have the 3 holes on the bottom of the case for your PSU? I've been wanting to do a PSU hole mod as well, but haven't had the tools to do so. Any chance you can provide pics of it? Edit: this is directed towards your Intel build in case I wasn't clear about it.

I dont think there's another rev. yet. Probably just better CPUs. Mine isnt OCing any better, I was able to grind out a better OC on my RAM with the DRAM strength options.
So even though there's no new revision CPU's there has been some changes made that were made public or is this a "speculation"... Could it really just be the bios?

Guess that it doesn't really make to much sense that the chips would "mature", in a sense... At least without a new revision, everything would stay the same unless they changed something during mfr process...? IDK...

I gotta agree that the newer chips are just more likely to get 4ghz performance on lower volts because of the "maturing" of the chips. I'm sure they didn't make a new revision because the changes weren't as drastic as C2 going to C3.

You should be able to, though every chip is different, so there's no guarantee to 4ghz. First update to 1.G, lots of people are getting good results with that BIOS, myself included.
Yeah Kalvin is abuot 7 onths old and now! He doing well. My little girl turned 3 at the end of Nov. So we're adjusting over here....

Maybe I'll try flashing the BIOS and see what it yields.

When did you get this CPU and which version is it? Also, What BIOS are you running?
