Title: 2080ti Lightning Z clocks stuck @ 1350mhz under a waterblock
Post by: mrkingx11 on 20-March-19, 09:47:17
hello


i have installed Bitspower waterblock on 2080 ti Lightning Z and i noticed MSI AB wouldn't allow power target control and pretty any control over the card then i noticed the clocks were locked to 1350mhz , when i try to apply an OC values the screen goes black for 10 seconds and comes back on without any changes !!!!

i was told to plug the original fans to the fan headers which is almost impossible since i have a hard line tubes setup

i tried to register my card but i get the " strange "  product not recognized error in the website and the android app !!!


someone help please

Ok, issue got confirmed by MSI. They found the following workaround so far, please test it.


1. Connect FAN to the pin header

2. Install the RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z in the system

3. Re-install NV driver  (the version used by MSI is 419.35 (https://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/144363))

4. Power off the system

5. Take the RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z out of the system and disconnect FAN

6. Install the RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z in the system

7. Power on the system and do not re-install NV driver

It should be fixed but so far there is just the workaround. If you want to contact MSI about it: >>How to contact MSI.<< (https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=107326.0)

Dear all,

MSI provided a modified beta vbios for testing. It will disable any RGB working though. If you want to still try it send me a personal message and I will provide a link via personal message.

the vbios has been tested and it did work, thank you flobelix:worship: 

just wondering why MSI doesn't allow for a higher power limit for the lightning, 380w is just a waste for this kind of card as EVGA gives its flagship 2080ti Kingpin a maximum 520w power limit, just asking :rolleyes:

It is a Lightning card. All vbios versions allow overclocking. I don't understand what you are saying about RGB

Hi guy's, I've just finished my first ever custom loop. I've put weeks, ££££££ and my heart and soul into it. Turned out better than I could have hoped for. Low 40's in a 26c room!!Then I updated the driver :-( I'm absolutely in pieces over this. Literally can't sleep!! Can someone PLEASE reassure me that there actually is a working vbios for this issue?? Putting the fans back on is out of the question. Still waiting for response from MSI. Many, many thanks for any help or reassurance anybody can give me. Cheers Adam.

Flobelix, could you send me the Vbios link also? 

Card ran 1980mhz in new computer but kept crashing in 15 minutes. Called MSI and they told me to try changing the GPU in another computer and then updating drivers. Since i did this and installed a new driver it froze at 1350mhz.. but fixed the crashing.
