    That's the maximum that can be done with 680L PWM architecture. And honestly, even if there were some room to improve 680 Lightning voltage control further, it I'd better invest time into something more useful. MSI doesn't provide it to Lightning users anymore and doing something myself and reading things like that feedback @ OCN is a bit demotivating.

    Aw man, and I just got 2.2.5 yesterday... :p

    The download link says "Download AfterBurner 2.3.0 - MSI announced today that its Afterburner v2.2.5 overclocking utility and its Kombustor testing utility is now available for all gamers to download worldwide."

    Also, the official site (where I got 2.2.5) doesn't list it yet: http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm
    Clicking "Download latest MSI Afterburner beta" gets you 2.2.0 beta, but "Download MSI Afterburner" gets you 2.2.5 Beta 1... When I start the software it tells me that 2.2.5 is available for download and directs me to the same webpage... :3eyes:

    Anyways, thanks for this, going to install as soon as I get home from work. :)

    Could Anyone please take the time and help me with a beginner sound question?

    I'm trying to get my ingame sound, as well as the sound from my microphone on my G35 logitech headset to work whilst recording. But no matter what setting I seems to try out, I only manage to get my in game sound to work.

    Thanks in advance.

    If your G35 is visible as WASAPI capture device, select it as the second audio source.

    Just checked the latest changes in hardware database, added from MSI side to 2.3.0 distributive and I'm afraid that I've got bad news for those who own reference design 7970 GHz Edition cards.
    The database defines any 7970 GHz Edition card as MSI custom design 7970 Lightning Boost Edition card, which means that Afterburner will search for Lightning specific voltage controller on any reference design 7970 GHz Edition card. As a result, voltage control will be available on true 7970 Lightning Boost Edition cards only.
    I'm not sure if it is a typo or not. These changes make sense only if MSI ships 7970 Lightning Boost Edition cards with reference 7970 GHz Edition BIOS, but in this case voltage control for reference 7970 GHz Edition won't work in Afterburner at all.
    I'll ask MSI to clarify those changes inside the database.

    This was awesome although I would love for a Audio Source #3! Because then I could use Virtual Audio Cable and then have it like this:

    Audio Source #1 - My in-game sound
    Audio Source #2 - My friends's voices in Skype/Teamspeak
    Audio Source #3 - My microphone

    But really good job on the update guys, much appreciated!

    Define "no picture". Do you check video ****** properties and see that it is physically empty? Or there us no video in some player? Or In video editor application?

    open Video in VLC no Visual just Audio, File size for 1 min run time around 7-10 MB so far.

    also tried the OLD MPC-HC with FFDshow Codec Extension. nothing from all VFW files that ive recorded so far.

    Try to go to .\Bundle\OSDServer folder and edit SaveMedia.cfg (admin rights required!) to enable debug mode. Then record short movie (5-10 seconds is enough) and post contents of SaveMedia.log file, which will be automatically created in the same folder.

    Then you were not editing the file from application with admin rights or did't record video. Cannot say what't wrong with your system without a log, sorry.

    What you want to do should already work. In previous versions I was able to record the in-game sound as well as my friends voices from Skype just by using the default recording settings. I just couldn't record my own voice.

    Small workaround: happily starting from this version the databases for reference design cards and custom desigh cards are stored in different files. So it is enough to delete MSIAfterburner.oem file to get rid of all custom MSI cards support including 7970 Lightning Boost Edition.
