Also, you will notice a new "K" button in Afterburner, which activate seperated benchmark program. Why "K"? you will download it and find out VERY soon!

    Changelog

    - Added voltage control for custom design MSI R5870 Lightning series graphics
    cards with uP6266 voltage regulators
    - Added integration with external MSI Kombustor stability testing application
    (coming soon, stay tuned!)
    - Added workaround for overclocking bug of ForceWare 196.21. Please take a note that the workaround is applied only to 196.00 - 196.21 driver versions range in order to ensure compatibility with future fixed NVIDIA drivers. That is wny you may need to force the workaround via ClockDomainIdWorkaround configuration file entry if NVIDIA release a few more versions affected by this problem prior to fixing it

    Hi lenehan, according to the "read-me" it is an app. called MSI Kombustor.
    Like Garret said, "you will download it and find out VERY soon."
    Thanks Unwinder, for continuing to improve on a great little utility.

    I took the liberty to edit your post, Garrett_Wu. The new 196.21 "beta" driver from Nvidia you're referring to is already WHQL. :D

    Beta is working great for me. :) Even on my good old 7800gt 256. I just did a bios flash for the first time ever. i did 486/1200. Its stable but i use afterburner to set low 2d clocks of 365/905 when not gaming. :) Thanks for the fix. Wasnt working ofcourse with new drivers.

    Thanks! It seems NVIDIA will have a fix for this issue.

    Is it possible for voltage control to go below 1v on AB? That would be great for testing purposes

    The upper and lower limit of voltage adjustment is controlled by MSI because of security reason, it won't open to public.

    first of all thanks unwinder for the effort of this free program (even if i dont have a msi card it works like a charm) second, im just curious, why not integrate the stress test within the AB app, i mean just for conveniance 1 app to rule them all. is there like some technical tedious dificulty?

    They are completely different program written by different developers (but same brilliant!), user can receive better support (upgrade, flexibility) when they're seperated.

    Can't wait for the Kombuster software. There isn't any program right now that has error detection for ATI 5 series cards so it will be very welcome. :)

    Nobody promised to give you error detecting and artifact testing in Kombustor. It will be graphics card stress tester just like original FurMark.

    well i hope in future versions it would, it would make a lot a sense, for the nature of the app.
