    MSI 480GTX Lightning
















    Main characteristic
    GPU -> Add +500mV
    Memory -> Add +500mV
    PLL -> Add +500mV

    Because GPU power is divided A, B block 12 phases
    Memory 3 phases
    GPU, memory, PLL add voltage support (switch control)
    Conneter support that voltage check is available
    PWM Clock control support (switch control)
    Dual Bios (CCB Fix) (switch control)
    OCP Unlock (switch control)

    hey OC_Windforce! Mine maxed out the same on air. 884 stock voltage for core, 900 passed +50mv but no scaling at all after that. Where you able to get higher with more voltage? I went up to +150 with no gain in speed.

    oh hi bro
    Was impossible even if is 900Mhz limit and gives voltage better. (+120)
    Perhaps, do cooling improvement higher Clock possible may

    Lovely card. I'd have gone this route vs a 470, but my PSU can't power a 3 pci-e power beast like this card.

    How were temps with that card on air btw?
    BP ruined my dinner and my region. (yep, I'm still pissed!)

    Nice.

    I think the twin frozr II HSF should generate about the same temps on 470. Good to know.

    I wonder how it would do in a case.... but that's great w/ those OCs.

    Is there a better video card than MSI GTX 480 Lightning? 900mhz on air, 1400mhz on LN2

    I've compiled a few things we did that might help people to get higher clocks on the Lightning: http://elmor.se/view/108/howto_overc...ghtning_on_ln2

    From mine and Henrys findings, the most important things are to use good thermal paste (OCZ Freeze) in combination with keeping the pcb warm. This is basically what allowed us to run 1400 core on these cards. If the thermalpaste looses some of it's conductance at low temperatures, it will have huge impact since the heat emitted from the GPU is quite severe.

    Still amazed you didn't touch PLL voltage and ran those clocks because it scaled core clocks with the two cards we benched. Maybe yours can run 1500+

    Haha, we'll see. We tested with higher PLL but didn't gain anything (just the small boost from the vSwitch).
