Seriously dude, if you can afford SLI 680s, you can do better than that crappy PSU. A Corsair TX750 v2 or XFX Pro 750w (both Seasonic units) can be had for less than a $100 and would be a better bet. Personally I would go for an 850w or 1000w unit simply to ensure it remains unstressed at all times and therefore longer lasting.

Thanks for the heads up! This was my first PC build, thats why its not a good power supply haha.

Time to look for a new one! biggrin.gif

Just received my MSI GTX 680 today and just wanted to share some info on my OC that was stable right off the bat. I'm definitely going to go higher, but from what I've seen in most of the reviews, a lot of them were doing +150mhz on the core so I decided to try that first. The result was turbo mode going as high as 1250mhz (I didn't really bother with the memory).

I also just wanted to say that the temperatures and noise levels are just amazing. I have the fan at 72% and although the GPU is definitely more audible, it's actually not that bad at all - if you did this on a reference GTX 480 back in the days, I'm sure your ears would've been almost off biggrin.gif

Temps are very good as well, I peaked 64c with 3dmark 11 and 69c on Heaven.

Here's what I ended up with (note that the latest version of GPU-Z is still buggy with the readings):

Not that loud. It can definitely be heard, but it's nowhere close to making my ears bleed.

There's something about the "tone" of the stock fan that makes it not as annoying as the stock fans used on the 480's/580's. I'm definitely happy with what NVIDIA have done smile.gif

I actually prefer noise coming from my computer so I'm cranking the fan up high.

I really wish you could disable this "GPU Boost" feature though. It's not really kicking in all the time and tends to make my core clocks spike a lot.

Okay here is a before and after overclock. I cannot believe how good this card is. Coming for a 6950 crossfire setup, this is miles ahead in performance.
Do you think I will gain more performance increasing the core or memory? gaming a 2560x1440.

Before:
338

After:
338

I am a ref 7970 user and for me 680's silent (or not loud if you want) stock fan is the biggest advantage this card has over mine. You can maintain a high everyday ο/c with good temps and no noise. Hell at 70% fan speed my 7970 can do 1240mhz easily but at the cost of becoming deaf one day. biggrin.gif Cudos to your purchase thumb.gif
