Yup! You can use the screw slots in your case as a reference for card placement. You will hear a click and that's a wrap. For removal (if needed) there is usually a small lever on the PCIe slot on your mobo to press in and it will pop out a bit.

I have been playing around with the Korean card. So far it doesn't seem to be overclocking all that well. I could get heaven to run 3x with the core to +130 (1215mhz) and mem +250(3251mhz).

My power limit seems to go up to 176% where as most peoples top out at 132%. It doesn't seem to do much though. My power never goes over 100% frown.gif

Nvidia are in a much better position with this cooler running, power sipping GPU. They don't have nearly the same power envelope hurdles to jump over; compared to what was pushed out for the GTX 590. While the clock speed may be reduced slightly, I anticipate it shouldn't be hard to overclock the card to match stock 680's in SLI - similar to the AMD HD5870 and HD5970.

It really goes to show how big of a home run Nvidia have hit with Kepler - too bad TSMC can't seem to keep up with demand:

The question is, given the scarce availability already for the 680's, what kind of release rollout are we actually looking at? And along those lines, was the limited availability of the 680 due to having to double up chips to make these cards? If not, we are looking at even rarer cards that will *really* draw in obscene price-gouging.

Just recently got my MSI GTX 680 after I sold my 7970 because I wasn't satisfied with the overclocking performance.

Ironically enough, this card doesn't seem to overclock well either.

I've tried running +100 on the core but after 2 runs of Heaven Benchmark my video driver just crashes. (latest 301.24 beta driver)
Got a custom fan profile going on so it never really exceeds 65c or 149f.

I can't believe that I've got another bad chip on my hands...

Mine isn't great either. I can only get up to 1200 Mhz core (max boost) without it crashing in Heaven. Which on my card is +76 on the core beings it is factory OC'd.

Yeah, glad I'm not the only one with bad results.

Honestly expected more from this card.

1200 is very common for these. Honestly imo you are more likely to get a good OCing 7970 over a 680. But the 680 at 1200 is still a beast.

I feel the same way though I'm on my second card and they both wouldn't do much past 1200. I think my current one is stable at 1228. Hasn't crashed yet.

Just to clear things up, does anyone actually use voltage overclocking on this card as well?

I have not. I read that it didn't do anything. Only thing that I set other than the offsets was setting power to 132%. Even though the highest I hit was about ~109%. It is usually under 100% though.

And here I was glad I got the Twin Frozer because I wouldn't have to worry about temps going over 70C ever and the card downclocking...but ended up not getting a great OC'er. It is still a lot better than my 470 SLI though.
