    Anyway, my programmer is on its way and I should have it within the next few days.

    Cool. Got my modded vBIOS flashed and it looks like it's drawing more power as requested. Took a bit of fiddling with the clip not connecting the pins correctly but it seems to be working fine so far.

    With the modded vBIOS it peaked at 166W in uncapped gameplay so a good start. Temps sit in the mid-60s and I can live with that (anything below 70 degrees is fine).

    Hopefully the temp throttling issue can be fixed.

    Nice. Have you noticed any improvement on benchmark scores?

    I thought there was an artificial limit on the core OC of 135MHz? it seems i can go higher :p

    Not on the desktop series, it's mostly just power limits used to control things.

    On mine,
    Nvidia inspector gives a -200/+200 range on core
    Afterburner gives -400/+400
    I haven't checked but think the range on both is -1000/+1000 for memory. I have certainly done as high as +750 (made system slightly unresponsive)

    I haven't benched at any core OC though and expect minimal benefit outside benching since it's all power limited (stock vbios) whatever load is on the cards even at core underclocks

    I wonder if MSI left the clock ranges open on my cards' vbios because they come from a PC (G65VR) not a laptop.

    If it's power limited anyway then there is not much harm in leaving the clocks unlocked I guess.
