    Hello. Have an question about OC SCANNER MSI AFTERBURNER.
    What is recommended before START SCAN. All power limit,temp limit,voltage maxed? Or only power limit and temp limit without voltage?
    Or maybe all default? I have 2080 Ti

    After scan when i clicked test i think curve was go to lower and boost was lower but before test i must click apply or not?

    Pc:
    9900K 5ghz
    2x16GB DDR4 GSKILL 3000mhz
    Asus Prime Z390-A
    Corsair 850RmX
    Rtx 2080 Ti Aorus

    Try different settings.

    I found a nice curve with Power and Temp limit maxed out and voltage at 0%. Custom Fan curve.

    Fairly quiet with max at 2010MHz Core Clock, no memory OC.

    And yes you must click apply. Also save to a preset just in case, you can always overwrite it later if you don't like it

    Something is f**** up. Even without curve my voltage fluctuating like crazy,maybe its normal? I have maxed sliders power ,temp,voltage. One time on 2020mhz is 1.870v ,second time is 1.050v. Its random. Its normal? Sometimes on 1950 is 1.340v ,sometimes its 1.670v,1870v etc. I am testing firestrike gpu test 1 and i have crashing when i am looped. Even on small oc is crash.
    Even +20 core boost, and crash after 10 min or 30min or 4 hours. Tried on stock memory but still crashing.
    Only not crashing when gpu core is on stock + still all limits maxed,but stock boost ( 1695mhz ).

    My psu is fine.
    Corsair 850RmX



    ps:
    Ah its only firestrike gpu 1 test. On all games and other benches i am stable on 2080mhz even .




    Stock boost is 1695mhz. When i left him default ( no oc ) but max all sliders: power limit,temp limit, then my max clock at start is 1995mhz. So basically i dont must oc right? Core is 0+.



    And then its not crashing lol so where is the point?!



    When i oc to 1770mhz it starts at 2055-2077mhz and sometimes crash,sometimes when temps raise go to 1955mhz but crash at 1955mhz.



    But when core is 0+ no crash.

    You don't have multiple programs open that are monitoring the voltage, do you? If multiple programs are pinging the hardware you will get erroneous readings.

    How would that work?
    It is just reading some hardware register. It should not matter if one program reads it or hundreds

    The auto OC button never worked for me, but I was able to do a mild manual OC myself.

    It worked for my 2070 but I already found slightly higher working clocks manually.
    In any case I suspect you still need to test stability after auto-oc... or maybe they simply know all Turing cards will hit some clocks (as every review shows they do) and all auto-oc does is to set those clocks +/- few MHz and that is it ;)

    I overclocked memory to 800+ but left stock boost ( 1695mhz ). Real world clock is 1980-1930mhz in games. this is with power limit maxed 133%. No oc. Because small oc and have crash after 4 hours in firestrike test 1

    Max power and temp full right. OC scanner only pushes based in your set limits.

    If it's anything like the EVGA version, the automatic OC function doesn't work very well.
    On mine I just ended up boosting my clock by 100, memory by 500, and setting the power limit to 133%. Going over those values has lead to crashes/issues, but those seem to be rock solid.

    1980 is a little low but not out of the realm of possibility. My stable is only 2080 and I have a waterblock which helps stability.

    What did you expect? 2040? You’re talking about 2-3% increase which is negligible.

    Realize a lot of OC numbers you read online aren’t actually stable. People like to pass firestrike once and use that number.
