Overvolting my EVGA GTX 460 SE 1GB

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is it possible? I turned on voltage unlock in MSI Afterburner and it still sin't letting me change the voltage.

Do I have to flash the card to get it working?

Thanks guys.

Did you allow unofficial overclocking in the config file ?

Go to MSI afterburner's folder in program files.
Open MSIAfterburner.cfg with notepad.
Change the "enable unofficial overclocking" from 0 to 1
Save as. Make sure "All Files" is in the "Save as type" box and save.
You should now be able to control the voltage.

Beware not to fry the card.

That didn't work =S

I noticed EnableUnofficialOverclocking was under the [ATIADLHAL] (what I think means ati) column and not the [NVAPIHAL] (what I think means nvidia) column.

You are correct, that flag is to allow ATI cards to OC higher than the limit set by the ATI drivers ... it has nothing to do w/voltage control, and nothing to do with NV cards.

Are you on the latest version (probably a beta) of Afterburner? In order to have voltage control using AB, your card must have the proper physical hardware (generally a Volterra-branded voltage controller) to support software voltage control, and Afterburner has to be programmed to support the particular model of voltage controller on the card.

If it were me, I'd (politely) inquire on the Afterburner forum at guru3d.com, where one of the AB devs (Unwinder, of Rivatuner fame) often hangs out, as to why the voltage control isn't working on your particular card. Make sure you SEARCH the forum first though because you'll get verbally abused around there if you re-ask something that's already been discussed ever in the history of the forum

I've found this is the best way to avoid a bunch of hearsay and generally useless advice on a subject like this.

I just tried to register on the forum and registering is closed. It looks like Unwinder is on holidays or something, that could be why.

Oh well, I'm fine for now, got it running at 845 mhz core (the max it'll let me go) on Afterburner and things are 100% stable with stock voltages
