    Yes there is, my ex Asus 7850 2gb v2 could go up to 1.3v so there must be a way.I think it's related to software, there are some versions that does not let you go further.Try with other software or older versions like the 2.0.7.0 from Asus Tweak.

    My ex 6870 could go up to 1.4v with a modded software so...

    is your voltage jail breaking is real or something deceiving like AB which you can adjust voltage up to 1.3 but it's fake and not working
    why voltage is locked for a beast version of 7970 like asus dc2 top

    Asus DCUII 7970 cards use a non-reference design. The voltage control is not supported in MSI Afterburner.

    Have a look at ASUS's own overclocking tool(s). If you find that you still cannot overvolt with that, then you might want to check if VBIOS flashing (to the matrix platinum most probably) will unlock voltage.

    They have started locking the voltage on these so it seems you got unlucky. Same with xfx and gigabyte if anyone is wondering

    Asus Tweak 2.0.6.0 will unlock it for sure up to 1.3v .

    edit: i meant 0.6 not 7.

    Happy overclocking. :banana:

    Me?I did not, i did test with the 7850 2gb v2 from Asus on W7 64 and it worked perfectly up to 1.3v.I was using this card at 1250_core 1.25 or 1.28v 24/7.

    Give it a try with W7 64 and make a dual-boot, w7 + w8.
