I have (2) GTX 570's in sli. I'm using MSI Afterburner and the voltage is capped at 1.1

Is there a way to get more voltage?

I don't see the link in the first post, i'm already using Afterburner. And trixx is for AMD cards...

Is there a bios mod for the GTX 570?

I'm sure that there is, but be careful, I managed to kill my first GTX 570 running it at 1.2v on air - the Asus GTX 570 comes voltage unlocked. I wish that they had set a maximum voltage of 1.1v if the card can't handle 1.2v.

well that was your fault, if you did any research you'd know that it's not smart to run 1.2v on air... and it is factory capped at 1.1v max, you flashed the bios to 1.2v, and it can handle it, just not on air

I will be able to hit 1.2V on MSI Afterburner?

Maybe, but you really shouldn't do this, perhaps unless you have water cooling. Even then I'd still think 1.1v is the safe limit.

You can find the readme in the zip archive.

First overclock, you'll thank me later

This didn't work on my PNY GTX 570's...

The option to go up to 1.4V is in Afterburner, but when you apply, it just goes back to 1.1

Now I did try flashing my PNY BIOS to the ASUS bios on TechPowerUp, it worked, and I could increase voltage up to about 1.21, but no increase in clocks was able to be attained upon testing... So I just flashed back to my PNY bios...

Can I actually get my Volts to 1.4 somehow...?

I can already smell the characteristic smell of burnt chip
