TPU's review of the MSI N670 PE indicates the hardware will not allow voltage control. The following is from page 4 a closer look "MSI uses use a Richtek RT8802A voltage controller on their card, just like the reference design. This is a fairly simple controller which does not offer any monitoring features or software voltage control. Voltages are controlled via VID pins that are directly connected to the GPU."

So... Afterburner 2.2.3 will not unlock voltage on the N670 PE?

Before it's all doom&gloom, just wait for Unwinder to deliver a nice piece of magic, okay?
