How to enable voltage in MSi Afterburner?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, going to overclock my GTX470 soon.

How do you enable voltage control in MSI AB?

I'm going to test first stock clocks with OCCT and FurMark to make sure the card is stable and not unstable at stock.

Help please smile.gif

EDIT: nvm, I found it under 'unlock voltage'
EDIT2: How do you find out VID?

Thanks guys

When you first install afterburner or a new driver the voltage displayed before making any changes is the stock VID on the 470s & 480s.
Nvidia inspector will show the VID along with whatever voltage is set in afterburner.

Ok it's reading .925

Is this good or bad?

I think me means it is grayed out, it is for me won't let me change it even after I allow it to be changed in the menus.

I think .925 should be pretty good, my galaxy 470 VID was .982

awesome thank you so much.

I have up to 1.087mv correct? That's the max it will show.

Gonna test stock clocks in Furmark and OCCT first before I start overclocking. redface.gif

yup you are bios limited to 1.087 ( can be bypassed with unlocked bios, needs better cooling ), Which I can tell you even with a very aggressive fan profile a 470 will have trouble holding that voltage for everyday gaming clocks.. ( w/ stock cooler )
If you want more voltage, you need better cooling, perhaps a Zalman V3000F if you want to keep it on air.. thumb.gif

ok cool thanks. I plan to run the fan at 100% to achieve my max OC.

So I should look into getting an aftermarket HS for it eh?

EDIT: I just went from 40% fan to 100% and boy did it ever sound like an airplane on liftoff lmao
