Im playing skyrim at 1080p with all settings maxed and Vsync on and my card averages 1,500 - 1,700mb in memory usage. Some times dips down to 1,200mb. With it so high should i be worried soon to be released games will be limited on a single screen at 1080p maxed out?

so according to you signiture series cards are vapor chamber..

Ok, I just started testing out some games. I loaded up Crysis 2 with DX11 and High Res pack. For some reason, I will be at 60fps, then it will drop down to 30fsp (quite a bit actually). At some points, it will be in between, but something is definitely wrong. I would think I would at least be constantly over 50fps. Vsync is on in game settings and set to use 3D application settings in control panel, so I do not have adaptive vsync on. Nothing else is forced via control panel options. Has anyone ran into this at all? Using 301.24 drivers.

EDIT: It is set to all Ultra settings in game and I have motion blur off.

I run at mostly 60fps but will have it dip to the high 40-50 fps range. I am also using the 301.24 betas.

I got it smile.gif I feel so special and proud of myself but a bit guilty for spending 540$ on a graphic card.

I said the FTW's are vapor chamber just like Signature. Never said Signature 2 was. Signature 2 is a duel fan 2 GB 5 Phase PWM.

Just go to EVGA and see for yourself. No reason to shout. Guess I misunderstood your question.

Here's the entire line. http://www.evga.com/articles/00669/#GTX680SC

your saying that the signiture card is like the FTW card using a VAPOR CHAMBER
thats all I want to figure out never said anything about signiture2 card..

Oh, heh sorry for the confusion. smile.gif look at the link and you can see the entire line up.

http://www.evga.com/articles/00669/#GTX680SC

I prefer vapor chamber, at least on the Nvidia cards. I prefer the hot air exhaust blowing out the rear air flow bracket as opposed to dumped inside the case. Lower ambient temp inside the case. If I choose to SLI in mid-tower case, the cards do better with vapor cooling when forced to be sandwiched.

Single card open fans is just fine for lower GPU temps. In a well ventilated case it's no problem.

My personal synth bench clock is 1223 MHz and my game bench is 1254 MHz.

On a side note. I sold my 580 today w/back plate & hi-flow bracket for $300. My kids get this 680 SC in thier rig and my main rig now will be looking foward to mid May for the 680 FTW 4 GB card. Set aside $600 and ready to go. thumb.gif
Do you really feel the need to get 4gb's? From the reviews even at surround it doesn't seem to do much.. I would personally prefer a card with beastly vrms and hopefully voltage control over an extra 2gb's of ram.

I am confused on the vapor chamber thing. Is that what a reference 680 has?

I want the FTW and may end up with the 2GB version. If I did get the 4 GB version the extra VRAM isnt going to be for more performance with a single monitor even for 3D Vision so it'd be just for the Epeen overkill that Overclock.net brings out of me. wink.gif I may just SLI next year instead of upgrade to 780 and it will leave the door open for the longer run going into a two year + run if I should choose. I have a 850 Watt Gold PSU and I know it can run two if these cards but not sure if I can with two 780's when they release. So if I did go 4 GB it's more for open road options and perhaps resale than any performance gains currently on single monitor.

Yes the EVGA reference versions are the Vapor Chamber cards that is with the blower fan in the enclosed shrouded chamber. This traps the air and forces it out the rear flow air bracket and out of the case. I stated the reasons in my orevoius post why I like it. It's a preference thing. 680 - vanilla, SC, signature, and FTW versions are vapor chamber cooling. The only one that is a dual fan option is the Signature 2 by EVGA.

Some prefer non-reference coolers with open casing. Open cases GPU's dissipate the heat quicker off the PCB and allows the fan to keep it slightly lower temps. Lower temps may allow for slightly higher over clocks. The heat immediately exhausts inside the case and in a poor ventilated case raise ambient temps and can increase the CPU temp. Higher CPU temp may effect the CPU over clocking capability. Well ventilated cases it's a non issue for the most part.
