There was 3 cable in the box that plug in there, insert a multimeter pin inside these cable and you will have the voltage they are link to. One is GPU Vcore, memory voltage and the PLL.

OH i get it now.
hum, do i just connect three two pins cable to the 5V 4pins power supply? By doing it, is it giving the video card addtional power to overclock?

I am so comfuse.. Thank you any way.

NO! they are read points for the voltage only! Do not connect to any power source or you might fry your card.

Because the MSI Hawk is a "Triple" Overvoltage card, they give you the read points to see if the measured voltage matches what you set in the settings. They are meant for extreme overclocking use. If you are a "newbi", don't mess around with overvolting the card until you do so research and learn what you are doing.

SugarJ is right. I am in this for long and I'm still very prudent on GPU OC. I find it harder than CPU OC and there is also a lot less ressource when it come to it.

thanks for the advices sugarJ.
It looks like i dont have to worry about it and just use the afterburner for "software Overclocking" LOL!
