Same here in Spain, and Germany has very small amount of cards, a few MSI and Gigabyte cards, rest are out of stock.

I guess it was a good move to buy the 2nd card right when I saw it on stock instead of waiting, if I didn't, I would still be waiting for another EVGA card, and both my cards are golden, love them. biggrin.gif

@Denim,

I see you have went to the green team. How are the 680s treating you and I think you should do a comparison review between SLI 680 vs CF 7970. You were really helpful in the 7970 forums and it's a sad place now without you there. I know the 680s are better cards overall, backed up by Nvidia's great drivers, but do you think it'll be worth it for me to move from 7970 CF to 680 SLI? How are Nvidia's drivers vs AMD's?

Drivers are the same imo. I had a 7950 previously.

CCC has way more options in CCC compared to Nvidia. The only plus is the option for SSAO, however I find it a tad overdone.
However Overclocking these cards are a nightmare!

I know this isn't directed towards me, but I will give my experience too, just so you have a few responses. Just switched two days ago.

Drivers are much, much better. Haven't had a single crash since switching, and I didn't do a clean install or anything... Just uninstalled the AMD drivers, ran driver sweeper and installed the nvidia card + drivers. Everything has just worked.

Overclocking my card was simple...super-simple, took maybe 30 minutes with 3dmark11 to find a clock that has since been stable. There is no 'disabled this' or 'run this patch' to get back your overclocking features, like there is with AMD and their 12.3 drivers. In fact, I haven't been in the registry once since switching.

Worth it? Yes. Two nights in a row I have gamed continuously until 2AM, problem free. If I had to estimate, I would say I have gotten more gaming time in with this 680 in two days than I was able to get during the entire month I had with the 7970 crossfire due to having to continuously troubleshoot issues with the shoddy AMD drivers. I can actually finish matches in BF3 now without bluescreens... Most importantly, my monitors can go to sleep without bringing down my entire system when I wake them back up...and no, I don't see 'turning features off' as a valid fix for something like that, either. It should work out-of-the-box, or be disabled by default.

I know this is probably subjective, but the IQ seems better with the 680.

Oh, and the reference cooler is so much quieter than the 7970 reference cooler, it's unbelievable. I am having a hard time justifying watercooling the 680... It runs cool and quiet out-of-the-box. thumb.gif

I haven't went SLI yet, though, I will post my experience when/if I do. smile.gif Surround (5760x1080) on one card has been stable in the few hours that I used it.



PS: My cats are happy with the switch too, as I am no longer throwing things, so they are happily back to sleeping on my desk and the back of my chair without fear of sudden, flying objects smile.gif Wanna know how I know? I literally just pet my cats tail last night and it started purring loudly. Yeah...just its tail. lachen.gif

My physics score was also influenced by my RAM speed. 5.3GHz and RAM 2133 9-11-10 gets me ~12600 physics with right around 40 FPS.

Max Temp 69C with 85% Fan Speed.



Now some "off set" observations:

With my previous GTX 680 I scored 3DMark11 P9456 with higher off sets +125 / +110 / +200.

Funny how with less off sets on the GTX 680SC I scored higher 3DMark11 score 9617 at +110 / +75 / +100.

It seems that the 'off sets' for every card can vary and doesn't necessarily dictate how well your card will dynamically over clock itself. So we really shouldn't be stating our 'off sets' when we report to the club our scores but rather - Core & Memory min/max stats instead.

I will agree this is something we need to stop stating as it's causing much confusion for those newer to the over clocking that come to the club thread to learn.

If we stay consistent in stating minimum and maximum Core & Memory Mhz we will eventually figure out what kind of dynamic over clocking is going on behind the scenes.

Lastly, we will acheive higher Core clocks when EVGA releases the BIOS Fan Unlocker for the cards. Right now reaching 85% is limiting us from true potential.

Well I'm off to Frag in BF3 and go maximum settings in Crysis 2 testing. Poor me. tongue.gif
People have been saying over and over not to post offsets. But for some reason everyone keeps doing it. Hopefully it will catch on eventually.

What exactly is this new bios supposed to do ? Just allow a higher fan speed? Because my card never goes over 50c and it hasn't really helped much. If at all.
