thank for each answer
every card is different, the highest i can get my 768mb cards is about 825/linked/2100 at stock voltage (note the 768mb cards have a lower bus speed on the memory, the higher you can get the memory stable the better) where as some people can get all the way up past 850 on stock voltage
over-volting doesn't give me anymore headroom on my memory but it does allow me to get my core up to about 895 stable, raise your card to about 820 and stress test,then raise it in steps of 5 MHz until it goes unstable, then you'll know what your max stable oc is at stock voltage, afterburner and kombuster should work fine, but you can also stress test by playing games or running heaven. hope this helps (also note, without over-volting, your temps shouldn't be of too much concern, your card is more likely than not to go unstable far before reaching the temp threshold)

ANYONE want to answer my question about reading voltage with software seeing as how GPU-Z doesn't read properly?

Most of all I want to have msi afterburner show the actual voltage I'm runing instead of just +100 mV, any way to edit the .INI file or something to change that ?
the latest afterburner beta does an excellent job for me
I had to enable voltage monitoring, and check my gpu under the monitoring tab in the settings but now my gpu voltage shows up in afterburners graph and it seems to be pretty accurate, ill compare with gpu-z now
update: gpu-z is giving me the same readings as afterburner

Thanks a lot.Now i want buy somethink like that http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/sp...05.html?c=2208
a try it.Do you have some experiences with this?My vrm are without cooler and i have fear about my VRM.

im assuming your just refering to the heatsyncs, yes they will help keep your vrm temps down although they are mostly only used by people who watercool there cards so i dont know how well they work personally

Could i do OC on stock voltage without cooler on heatsinks?

i too want the answer for this question...i tried the latest afterburner v2.2.0 beta 2 and still i cant see actual core voltage of my card...i can only see the offset from 0 like 20+ 100+ etc...can anybody tell any way of making afterburner give correct reading of voltage on my gtx 460 hawk......

yes, as long as you have your cooler on the gpu

ill post screenies to show you in a minute

hope this helps for voltage monitering in afterburner



(above)you may also check show in OSD if you want any of the info in the grey box displayed on screen when running 3d games and apps

In addition to the above you may need to go into the cfg file to gain full voltage support. I didn't think this was as much of an issue with the 460's but it isn't any big deal if you have to do it. Just go to the afterburner folder and open up MSIAfterburner.cfg in note pad.

UnlockVoltageControl= 0
UnlockVoltageMonitoring= 0

Those are the settings you would be looking for. Changing them to =1 and save should unlock them if they are not already. Just make sure Afterburner is NOT open when you do this.

I didn't respond to this earlier because I didn't think this was actually your problem. It seems to me that for some reason some brands of cards just don't show the voltage, Only + XXmV. The only thing else I could think to try is maybe try an older version of Afterburner I'm using 1.6.1. Or you could try EVGA Precision which is nearly identical to Afterburner.
