MSI afterburner, increase max voltage?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The max voltage I can set in MSI afterburner is 1.138v, which lets me get 960 core.

But the temperatures at max is only 42' Celcius (meassured while using Furmark with limiter off) while also stressing the CPU in Prime, So I want to go higher thumb.gif

This is what I have set it to in the MSI afterburner notepad file:
Code:
[Properties]
ShowGeneralTab= 1
ShowFanTab= 1
ShowMonitoringTab= 1
ShowOnScreenDisplayTab= 1
ShowScreenCaptureTab= 1
ShowVideoCaptureTab= 1
ShowProfilesTab= 1
ShowUserInterfaceTab= 1

But it didnt help, what else can I try?

Try this:UnofficialOverclockingEULA=I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it.
It works on ATI.AMD cards,But not sure about Nvidia cards.
Restart computer afterwards.

Try this too:
Open>Regedit>Edit>Find>Enableulps>Modify>Change value to 0.Restart computer.
Leave MSI Afterburner like I said in earlier post too.
Like before,Works on ATI/AMD cards,But not sure about Nvidia.

I downloaded the MSIAfterburnerVoltUnlock files, and set max to 1,2v. and it works now. though seems like its a nono from the makers. tongue.gif

Edit:
Whenever I press Apply, the voltage just goes down again to 1,38 frown.gif
Any other advices?

Probably need to edit the gpu bios with a higher voltage limit & flash it back to the gpu, afterburner will not set higher voltage than the gpu bios will allow.

then 1.138V is max for you ... unless you directly mod the card itself.

By the way, I dont see any benefit to disabling the power limiter and running furmark. Nvidia put a power limiter on your card for a reason, and it's not to annoy overclockers.
