So now that they are locking the voltages of all the nvidia 600 series cards, I guess the unlocked ones will sell well. wink.gif

Ok... the (almost) final part of this story. Still working on the RMA for the fourth GPU, but the rest of the system is functioning now, some notes:
  • I didn't have the Reservoir connections set up correctly, so it was trying to use only one pump while the other spun its wheels and did nothing. Explains why it was making noise. There is now a drastic difference in the amount of flow seen in the reservoir and the tubing. In fact, the most notable part about this is that the reservoir looks like its churning like hell in there, when it was almost standing still before.
  • I had the flow frequency meter installed backwards, so it was reporting 0 to the tachometer values in the OS. whoopsie
  • The fans being connected to the CPU fan ports on this Rampage IV Extreme wouldn't slow down when they weren't needed for quieter 24/7 operation. After a lot of trial and error (mobo Q-Fan, SpeedFan, Asus AI Suite, etc wouldn't work) I just moved the connections to the Chassis Fan X and Optional Fan X ports, there I'm able to control the speeds with Asus AI Suite, primarily they just run at 50% now and don't change (because the system never heats up even under load thumb.gif )
  • I did some overclocking and found that I am in no way hindered by Thermal values anymore with the CPU or GPUs. I am still however limited by general chip instabilities. See below for the list of values I was able to set in the system.

CPU: i7-3930K (3.2 GHz) running at 4.6 GHz and 51C under load, 28C idle
GPUs: EVGA nVidia GTX 680 4 GB (Standard, not factory OC) default clocks of Core 1124 MHz Memory 3000 MHz with now a Core +140 MHz and Memory +375 MHz, they don't get above 46C under Heaven load and do 28C idle

Heaven Score for max settings in 5760x1080: 520 (FPS 20.7)
3DMark11 X Score: X8986 (I had one over 9000!)

I had to turn of MSAA though because FPS dropped to the low 50s if it's on 4X. Proc is a 3770k, all components at their stock clocks. Is this about normal?

But it was over priced to start with now it is even worse lol.
That sucks. I remember someone thinking their card was damaged, but I guess word was it was done at the behest of Nvidia? And it's still the same price? What in the world were they thinking?

Evga said the price was not changing cause it had a better cooler and higher clocks lol..

Well the Galaxy GC 4GB 680 is clocked the same as the Classy and has a better cooler and is 100$ less... you tell me what evga is thinking cause there Normal 4gb 680 is more then the galaxy and so is there FTW version......

I have not seen the guts of the classy but i know for a fact the Galaxy is built better then the normal 4gb 680 and the ftw.

Man, it seems like they are walking off a cliff for some reason. They have to know the EV Bot drives sales of the Classy's (which, as you said, are already overpriced, so without that going for it....***??). I am new to pc's building/OC'ing, so I wasn't planning on OC'ing my 680 (which was my justification on spending so much on a graphics card), but if I had planned on it before hand, i certainly would have went a different route.

OC'ing is just so addictive to me. The joy of getting that 24 hour prime95 blend test, or finding the stable clock on a GPU just a few numbers off of it being unstable, all just makes me excited. EVGA seemed to promote a pro - OC stance on their products, and everyone I knew had one, and was really happy, but none of them OC'd. The MSI Lightning would have been my choice, but i didn't know if they'd be around for me to get a 2nd for SLI down the road, cuz I had never seen them in a B&M store, and certainly hadn't followed people online that had them long enough to know how beast they were. Oh well, EVGA's loss.

So is there a sig for this club?
Didn't see it on page 1

Submitted it tho thumb.gif

PS
I honestly find it strange that my Heaven benchmarks were slower with my 3 680's than my 3 670's. Any ideas?
