    Does anyone know how it works? I'm used to using the voltage slider.

    Best guess it's the same as the Power Control setting in Overdrive? What does it go up to?

    -20 to 20.

    I just ran a twenty min test at 1100/1225 with it set at 10 without issue (temps 49°) but I'd like to know what it means before going any further.

    Yeah that's just the same slider as in Overdrive. It just allows the card to use more power(adjusts the Over Current Protection)allowing it use more power if it needs it(it is NOT increasing voltages)
    I just have my slider all the way up. But then I am just using Overdrive because I'm not really overclocking mine(100/50Mhz) for 1100/1500

    Well the "Scroll Bar" could be using the Orange of the clock sliders making it more visible/obvious and tying it in with the other sliders?
