    I recently purchase a GeForce RTX™ 3060 VENTUS 2X 12G OC GPU, one of the selling points in the MSI page is Afterburner and OC Scanner, and the fact that is an OC prepared card...however when i try to run OC Scanner (i tried with several versions of MSI Afterburner: 4.6.1, 4.6.3, 4.6.4B2), i get various degrees of failure, from it starting and crashing moments later with an error 3 (and from what i could understand not properly unlocking the voltage support of the GPU), to simply failing to start altogether from 4.6.3 onwards. I am not sure if it's because it is already applying some kind of dynamic overclocking or something thru the MSI drivers or something since Afterburner shows the voltage and clock dynamically changing all the time.
    I'd like to get it to work so i can get it to do some thermal management on the board.

    it's my main system GPU but i'm using it to mine some altcoins when i'm sleeping so i've installed nvidia 470.05 drivers which unlock mining on RTX 3060 cards.

    thanks in advance.
