^ Same story here! I thought there was something wrong with my cards, I once was at +215/+425 then was at +150/+360 now my drivers crash at anything over +122/+272 ......

Not that I noticed yet. But I did find out that the card I'm selling works at 1306 in everything but Heaven 3.0 which is only 1296.

Instead of posting offsets, can you post what actual numbers you're getting? We have no idea what you have if you just post offsets.

The clocks I get are dependent on the usage/boost/temp so it seemed more straightforward to post the offsets. Under 70 I get 1202 with +120 gpu offset, over 70 it tops out at 1184. The offset is not consistent but neither are the clocks at given offsets.

^^ Makes me appreciate the 680 lightning so much more. It never throttles with BIOS 2 no matter what the temperature or overclock is, whereas 680s generally throttle in 13mhz increments at 70C.

I never had an issue staying below 70 until summer rolled in (90 degrees+ on the east coast). My old house's AC struggles to keep up. Now even with an aggressive fan profile they hit 70.

EDIT: I also upgraded to a u3011 which has made it harder for the GTX680 to keep up...likely heating it up in the process of trying.

I hit 45'C with my gtx680. no throttling here!

That's helpful...would you like a cookie smile.gif
Ya, the Asus DCII is supposed to be the coolest of the aftermarket boards...is it still triple slot?
I'm on a reference EVGA card that has been in use since GTX680 launch.

I just noticed that you have your 680 watercooled...of course it doesn't hit 70. A couple of hundred dollars of water cooling is making that happen. Kind of misleading without noting its water cooled.

It doesn't throttle, but still somewhat temperature dependent. I got my 680 the night before leaving for TO, tested a little bit while packing & pass heaven at 1383 boosted, tried it in TO where it was quite a bit warmer ambient & it did not want to clock as well.
I love this card!

That puts things into better context. I figured the heat my be the cultpret but it hasn't been an issue for other cards...in terms of OCing. They get a bit hotter but a bit more aggressive fan profiles always brought the temps in check...without impact to my OC. Thanks for the input...maybe I should consider a water block...or maybe the Kuhler 620 mod. My 680 is only a hold over until the big kepler arrives smile.gif. I don't think that 680x2 is very futureproof for my resolution, especially the 2gb versions, and I'm not liking the boost and lack of voltage mods. I'm really quite like everything else though smile.gif, better then the 7970s I tried.
