    Does anyone remember how to get MSI AB to show the correct voltage in the OSD? I found it somewhere in these forums but I don't remember where. I just remember I need to go into the AB config and add a string of something to enable it.

    Make Afterburner show real voltage

    Show real voltage in Afterburner for 7970s.
    Warning: Spoiler! (Click to hide)With Afterburner closed, open your Afterburner install directory, traverse to profiles. There will be a config file for each card or cards inside. If you have more files than cards, then you can just delete all the files, ie. VEN_1002&DEV....cfg. This will effectively reset Afterburner. Now run Afterburner again and it will configure your cards and create new config files. Now you can edit the newly created config files. Close AB and...

    Add this under the Settings for each card you have.

    [Settings]
    VDDC_CHL8228_VIDReadback = 0
    MVDDC_CHL8228_VIDReadback = 0

    Depending on your card's VRM controller chips, the specific strings might be different. These instructions worked on my 7970 that uses reference hardware.
