get the MSI software it works with any TTX680 video cards, it's better and u can control other stuffs that EVGA or ASUS software can't

Temps never go higher than 67°C @ 60% fan speed.
I'm happy with that
The only question I have :
- Why, in Unigine 3.0, FPS drop by 50% when I set +150 core /+500 mem... The core clock reported by MSI AB is fine : 1228 Mhz.
It's like the card is lazy and the FPS drop ... I saw no artifacts, no BSOD, no drivers stopped ...
The power monitoring from MSI AB doesn't not show a power pick above 110%
In order to get the card to work properly again I have to reboot the system....
I'll have to investigate further...

Wow that's pretty sweet Kerian. thumb.gif

I'm having difficulty over clocking past 1126 Mhz core and nothing on memory with +132 GPU Boost.

I haven't been rebooting computer when I do crash and that might be some of my problem. I start to high and when drivers fail I reset to default and apply over clock again. No reboot. I'll have to give that a try, might be some of my problem right now.

Technically at default I'm enjoying the hell out of BF3 right now. I don't see the need to over clock and it's much better than my GTX 580 at 900Mhz OC I used to run 24/7.

This is definitely a new GPU in regards to over clocking. It's taking me a while but as you guys report I'm learning. I also realize there is some luck to the VRAM lottery and every cards is different.

So I'm using Precision X - is the beta Afterburner better with over clocking the GTX 680?

I also think it will help a lot when EVGA come out with the 'Fan Unlocker BIOS' so we can run the fans at 100% when benching or extreme OC profiles when gaming.

BF3 is an all new game for me.
I used to play on my 5970 and it was a mess : stuttering, no MSAA, low framerates because of the only 1 Go VRAM.

I only used MSI AB which is alright to me.
The only concern I might get is the monitoring of the core clock....

I pointed out that the GPU is having a lot of clocks.
let me explain:
- Some game like League Of Legends are not demanding, my card is runnong @ 700 Mhz which is low
- Some other game like SWTOR a little more demanding core clocks can go from 900 Mhz up to 1228 Mhz (actual frequency I set in afterburner).

That features is awesome for energy efficiency. Why would I want my card to run at maximum core speed when it's not necessary ?!
The cards clocks itself depending on how demanding the application is.

I used to be on the red side and they were only 2 frequencies : idle and load.

Heyas, guys, been reading your club forums for a few days now. Got mine on Tue, so count me in.
I do however, have a few questions if ya'll wouldn't mind helpin me out. (Sorry, this is verbose.)

Basically, after the nightmare of dealing with a 6 month RMA process through PNY for my 570 SLI setup I got tired of waiting on them and went back to EVGA for my GTX 680. (Figures, after 2 months of trying to get a tracking number after they told me they were returning my cards they finally show up Wed. 2 hours later, they sent me the tracking number. Let that be a lesson for anyone considering PNY products.) At least the cards they sent me are now stable at base clocks, but they absolutely refuse any overclocking (even a 2% OC with a moderate voltage clock crashes 'em).
Anyway, with my current setup, I have no issues keeping a single 570 well under 70 deg C (66 and 64) with fans at the 70-75% range under max load for over an hour at base clocks using Furmark 1.9.2 and Heaven 3.0. In SLI, they run about 65 and 75 deg C.

However, single 680 I have issues keeping under 75 deg C with fans at 80+ % at stock, and if I OC at all it struggles to keep it under 90 deg C (granted even at 80% it's still quieter then a 570 @75% or at least seems that way since it lacks the "whine"). The GPU fan is spinning and ejecting hot air out the back, and considering the lack of issues with keeping SLI 570s cool, I don't think it's an issue with the rest of my setup. Although I'm willing to try any advice that sounds plausible.
Based on what I can figure out, should I?
a.)Just check the thermal paste and/or replace it (gonna have to remove all the screws anyway since I have a backplate coming)
b.)Use the Antec 620 "The Mod" I was going to use on my 570s when I finally got some working cards back... (still need to find a bracket since Chmodlabs is taking his time getting distracted with silly things like school) tongue.gif
c.) Just RMA the darn thing

With choices a. or b. will this invalidate my EVGA warranty?

Last one, why MSI AB over EVGA Precision X? What am I missing, other then EVGA seems to be a lil more buggy (Seems to "stick" updating clocks once in awhile, and never seems to update fan speed unless you change it manually, tho since I run GPU-Z concurrently this really isn't an issue for me.)?

Thanks in advance for the help. thumb.gif

Can someone do a Crysis run please?

post #1007 of 6048

Now that Nvidia has killed videocard overclocking, what's next?

Intel will start selling nothing but fully locked cpu's, I guess.

Everybody's computers will clock exactly the same, so there's no longer any point in having an Overclockers Forum any more, is there?

"ExactlyTheSameClock.net" just doesn't sound right. It's blasphemous.

I've seen the future and it's completely Vanilla!

There's still hope, I guess.

Hopefully AMD is paying attention.

Maybe they'll still allow computer enthusiasts to thrive and allow their gpu's and cpu's to be OC'd.

If not, then this is going to be a very dull world.

I received 2 EVGA GTX680's yesterday. Now I'm bored and depressed.

Words I've never used for any new computer equipment.

Even a new cable held the promise of it being better than what it replaced.

It appears as if the BIOS senses any upward trend in heat and instantly starts downclocking.

Watercooling won't help. If the cards can't heat up then they can't be cooled down.

The only bypass is to cool before heating occurs.

Maybe LN or DI will stop it from doing this but I have access to neither.

Besides, extreme cooling only works as long as all of your coolant doesn't evaporate. Minutes? An hour at a time?

If Nvidia hasn't already done so, then they'll probably introduce a cold bug to future drivers so precooling won't work, either.

You'd better archive these early drivers like the earliest owners of GTX590's should have done. Before Nvidia locked down the voltage OCing of these cards.

You used to be able to take the best videocards and make them even better through OCing.

Now, Nvidia wants all of our videocards to run exactly the same.

Someone asked for a new thread, just for posting the best benchmark results for these new cards.

If there is one, you're gonna be severely disappointed!

1. 24 deg C (nights have been cool, so I haven't felt the need to kick on the AC yet) rolleyes.gif
2. Lian Li PC-B25S (with the kit to add an additional 120mm intake fan in front of the HDD bays) Total of 3 120mm intake fans in the front (the lower HDD bracket has been removed, and I'm meticulous about cable management), 2 120mm fans in push/pull exhaust on the radiator for the CPU out the back and a 140mm exhaust out the top, the PSU draws air thru the bottom of the case and exhausts out the back. As I mentioned, no issues cooling 570s in single or SLI with the current set up.
Appreciate the help biggrin.gif
post #1009 of 6048
Oh, and I do have some new fans arriving later today. I didn't feel like my 140 was really pushing air well enough, and figured I'd go ahead and see if I couldn't get better 120s as well (think some of them are Scythes, but not all). Went with Cougars, even tho I'll never see them most of the time I just can't get over Noctua's color scheme, they really make me wanna barf.

You can remove the stock cooler without voiding the warranty on EVGA cards. You'll only void the warranty if you physically damage the card so just be careful whilst removing the cooler. Also if you send it back for RMA you need to make sure you replace the original cooler when you send it back.
