Great review, I really liked the in-depth explanation of the heating solutions of the cards. However seeing the performance of the cards fall short of the 6800 series cards doesn't really make me want to get out of my seat. They seem to really suffer from the 128bit interface.

Can you tell me how the author achieved 1350mV on the Core Voltage for the Sapphire HD 7770 OC model using Afterburner?

I have 2 of these cards in Crossfire and the max Afterburner allows me is 1250mV.

Did you go through the steps needed to unofficially unlock MSI Afterburner ?

If you haven't unlocked it try the steps below. If that doesn't work it could be your BIOS are a different revision and only allow the core voltage to go up to 1250 and not 1350.

1st - Remove the current version and download the latest MSI AfterBurner and install.
2nd - Locate the folder where MSI Afterburner installed to, open it, and locate the CFG file named MSIAfterburner. When you 1st double click this file it will ask you what program you want to use to open it, choose "Notepad" and click "ok" Once you have the MSIAfterburner CFG file open in notepad you need to change a couple of settings near the bottom:

UnofficialOverclockingEULA = I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
UnofficialOverclockingMode = 1 (to keep PowerPlay active (may not work on old ASICs), 2 to traditionally disable PowerPlay or to 0 to temporary disable unofficial overclocking path)<--Do not type this, just for reference I have mine set to = 1

After you have made these changes, DO NOT forget to click "file" and "save" before exiting notepad, or your changes will not take into effect!

Thanks for the info Vagabond.

Tried to add the EULA line but upon exit it said Access Denied. I have full admin rights of course, tried going into the MSI Afterburner folder to change security settings but still no luck.

I removed last version and installed 2.2.0 Beta 15. Is that the latest?

Any ideas on the access front?
