    I was hoping someone could help me out on this one. I can't seem to get it to work...

    I've got modded bios for my card to raise the power limit.


    I have a feeling it has something to do with the file type being "text document" instead of the OEM2... am I correct? How can I change it?

    I choose "extended MSI" for the voltage control correct?

    Control Panel -> Folder Options -> Show file extensions.
    If you're trying to use custom voltage controller support, you need to choose "third party".

    Thanks for the reply. I got the first part. But There is no third party in MSI? Right?
    It's either "Reference" "Standard MSI" or "Extended MSI"

    If you have a proper oem2 file in MSI Afterburner's folder, there will be "third party" option after you restart Afterburner.

    I figured it out! Thanks for the help. I now have full voltage control.

    Can anyone help with that ASCII file? I can't even read the files that came with installation (4.2) When I try to read original files like MSIAfterburner.oem1 I get weird symbols no matter what coding I try. And if I make a custom database using these directions I get "Some of MSI Afterburner components are expired, missing or corrupted" No matter what I do. Even when I copy from here.

    My card died this past week... I'm 95% sure it wasn't from this mod... however, I have to RMA the card...so hopefully there's no issue there. I only overvolted a little and temps were definitely in check, never over 60C. Card wouldn't boot randomly with a signal, had to do a full power off to get it to respond, then 1 day it just stopped working completely...

    Hi Unwinder,

    i have got voltage regulation on an ASUS HD7770-DCT-1GD5 enabled thanks to your manual.

    Here is my i2c dump.

    Hi, I have a Sapphire Radeon HD6790 1GB, I believe it has the CHL8214 controller. I tried doing the steps in chapter 4 (e.g. MSIAfterburner.exe /ri1,20,9c) with every bus and device adress conbination posible and got "invalid" every time (supposed to get = 43). Am I doing something wrong or is my GPU defective or something like that? Hope you can help me, thanks!

    Edit: Nvm, my VGA has an unsupported controller.

    Hi baumy15,

    mayby this will work for you

    ;OEM

    [YOUR VENDOR AND DEV ID]

    ; matrix platinum 290x

    Desc = matrix platinum 290x
    VDDC_IR3567B_Detection = 6:30h
    VDDC_IR3567B_Output = 0
    VDDCI_IR3567B_Detection = 6:30h
    VDDCI_IR3567B_Output = 0

    You need to put in your vendor id and your device id which can be found in the device manager in windows.

    Do it on your own Risk

    Greetings

    My custom design 5870 V2 from Asus works with MSI Afterburner 4 and voltage control :)
    This thread was very helpful to obtain the result!
    This is the text to add to the oem file:

    The default value should be +13, it equals zero offset to the voltage (stock voltage).
    Any values below or above +13 cause downvolting or overvolting accordingly.
    To check the real voltage GPU-Z is very helpful in that, because the voltage displayed on MSI Afterburner has some tolerances in values.

    Hope it helps :)

    980ti classified & Voltage.

    I've got MSI Afterburner in, but because of my 8350 there really was no need to overclock and was using Precision before. Well upgrading to 1800 Ryzen here soon so I'm messing with overclock just to get feel for. Anyhow I see my card was put in 3rd party database, so does that mean I can put on third party and control my voltage without having to do anything else? I just want to make sure before I do anything it's a real nice card and want to keep it that way and I'm a noob to MSI software. Thanks and appreciate. Its in title but just in case .... EVGA 980ti Classified.
