My first Nvidia was the 580 in Jan 2011 and now the 680. Ive had a great experience thus far. At first I was reluctant after years of thinking Nvidia was the dark force. Now that I've tried it resistance is futile. I love it. smile.gif

Just got my second one in today! I just had my first hands on experience with SLI+surround and I have to say I am impressed! All of the jittery buggy mess that was crossfire+eyefinity is no where to be seen! Never thought I would say this but I am glad to be back on the green team.

My Twin Frozr's overclock like champs, haven't pushed them too far yet but I can play BF3 stable at 1250core and +300 memory. Temps are a bit odd, top gpu runs at 65-68C while bottom runs at 50-52C during gaming! Definitely gonna have to try and improve my airflow or move my sound card perhaps it's blocking airflow.

Well, just a quick example even though it's an old game. I'm replaying the F.E.A.R. series because F.E.A.R. 3 was so cheap on Amazon I finally decided to get it. Anyways, playing FEAR 2 @ 120fps maxed and almost everything cranked up in the Nvidia Control Panel put quite a hefty load on 680 SLI. Not sure if insane levels of AA did anything after a certain point, but I just did it because I can. Anyways, yeah there was a 80-99% load on the cards and the average power usage % was in the 60s. Clocks were at the max boost steadily, yet the cards needed hardly any power. Memory usage was quite low, being an older game obviously, so I'm thinking that games with a large load on the core but lower memory usage use much less power.

But I've had similar results in newer games, just kind of stopped paying attention to power usage, always keep it at 132% since I never have temperature issues (top card never goes above 70C), so, I just took power usage % off of the graph in Precision a while ago.

i never get 99% usage ever. vsync is off for me. but i get high frames 70+. is that normal? should i be getting 99% usage?

SO CLOSE!

I just got an email from EVGA saying that the Signature Superclocked+ was in stock.. was too slow =(

Soon and I'll be among you

Your FX 8150 might be bottle necking your GPU's. When you can't get 99% usage from your GPU it means your CPU is holding it back. Your not experiencing the FULL power of your GPU atm.

I get full 99% with my single GTX 680SC on i7 950 over clocked to 4.0GHz.

Newegg selling back plates this year is new. Only place prior was directly from EVGA and still an option. I get them direct from EVGA when I've needed them. smile.gif
@ Mariusmsj - Congrats on your Gigabyte GTX 680 Windforce. Staryoshi swears by it. Great card. Robust hardware and kept very cool with the fan system. You should get great performance over clocks. thumb.gif

@ Omega Red - Congrats as well. smile.gif 1250 Mhz Core is a great over clock, and no voltage tweaking required. wink.gif Enjoy the SLI. biggrin.gif

My first nvidia card was the 8800GTS 320mb, then games started running out of vram in a big way @ 1920x1200. So I went to a 4870, which did it's job for a year or two. The 5870 replaced that and was great. I felt like amd was "king of the world". I then found an awesome deal on a u2711 monitor, and 2560x1440 was the biggest visual improvement I have ever had from 1920x1080. The 5870 was not keeping up, so I saved for a long while, and finally got a hd 6990. At first it was a fantastic improvement, I was finally able to get 60fps and vsync back with some room to spare. Then, slowly, when games came out that ran below 60fps, I noticed that my framerate never quite felt 'right'. Since then I have been doing crazy research as to why, microstutter, frame perception based on two gpu's. Nvidia vs AMD. This was - admittedly - extremely hard to research. The reason is that AMD people where tight lipped/uninformed about microstutter it was always "your system, mine is fine" "You got a dud card" or nvidia users saying microstutter was a myth blown out of proportion by fussy people.

Eventually, some actual articles started coming out (toms hardware being the most brought up), saying they would find some way to bring this important issue into their reviewing systems. Those articles died out, and became what "microstutter defenders" used as a reference point in their arguments - the reviews did not change. Except for a mention in HardOCP in their gtx 680 sli review - where they where quite passionate about the gtx 680 cards feeling a lot smoother at a wider range of framerates.

Getting that small amount of information was like squeezing water out of a rock while locked in a small cage for 2 years. No specific user, or debate on a forum gave it to me. I had to scour around reviews looking for any information whatsoever about it.

That's what led me to the subject being hugely taboo - in a sense, a large percentage of the users and the graphics cards manufacturers did not want the issue talked about - the reasons seemed to range from "hardware sales" to "protecting epeens". And the fact is - any site in charge of reviewing hardware - gives the consumer what they WANT.

All I ever wanted was an honest framerate.

Anyway - I hope, and no doubt the wider gaming community hopes, that me getting either a gtx 680, 690, or two 680's. Will shut me up for a generation or three.

Your sound card will heavily increase temps on the top card since it has a radial heatsink design. I bet removing it would grant you another 5-6C tongue.gif If you could position an intake fan on the side panel, that would work, too. You could re-purpose your GT on the top of the case, as it's not doing much good up there wink.gif
