MSI RTX 2080 Ti Lightning thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A thread dedicated to Discussion, Problems, News and OC stuff around MSI RTX 2080 Ti Lightning. Will be updated constantly.

// Info about MSI RTX 2080 Ti Lightning // 
- Uses custom PCB (3x 8Pin), basically reference but with digital ICs : 8-Phase MP2888 and MP2884. Can handle up to 700A on LN2
- Samsung GDDR6 instead of Micron, clocks better with also improved timings (depends on used BIOS)
- Beefy cooling solution, though I recommend using watercooling as Turing full boost is under 60C.
- Stock LN2 bios allows voltage change for vMem (memory voltage) and AUXs voltages (PLLs) those two are not necessary unless on LN2.
- Max power limit is set to 380W with 108% set in Afterburner its 400W max, NDA LN2 bios is fully unlocked with up to 1000W power limit. Also Core Voltage is unlocked (Custom Afterburner (ABX) needed!!!)

OC Guide :
(Will be updated as soon as I gather enough info and experience on cold)

Issues :
MSI card somehow is scanning everything on PCB, checking for "dead" voltages or malfunctions and if it detects something like an unplugged fan (my case because I'm on waterblock) it goes into safe mode.
Please use this BIOS to fix this : https://www.dropbox.com/s/8s0vewi7gg...RF_Ln2.7z?dl=0

Few words from me :
1) If u want higher power limit or LN2 NDA bios with ABX don't bother unless you're LN2 overclocker, it's extremely hard to get hold of this, also u will need Guide from MSI for HW mods which are needed in order to unlock card.
2) There is a work-around for power limit, you will need to flash BIOS with high-power limit - Galax OC Lab 2000W works fine with card, Core voltage is up to 1.2V.

-- If you want to ask or discuss, please comment below this thread, thanks for reading and lets all have fun with this card ! --

I am reading the thread and clearly , thanks for you and very important info about MSI video card.

I need unlock voltage with W up from Galax OC Lab 2000W or NDA MSI.

Can you contact me at PM.

I am from EU and support its only public and very bit little.

Thanks for support

Galax NVVDD wont work with Lightning and you need custom Afterburner for voltage tweaking which even I dont have.

Thanks friend , and Bios you has , can you send me PM ?

I have until software public , but with good bios can up clocks very well.

The MSI AB unlock voltages Auxiliars on my actual Bios LN2.

Use kingpin bios for bigger power limit. I cant share my NDA

I use Galax Bios 450 W and works fine.

I mounted SLI , and work very well.
