post #951 of 6048
After buying and cancelling a bunch of 680's that ended up being backordered, I think I finally hit the jackpot a Zotac 680 from Amazon. Feels good man. Is Zotac a reputable company?

Sorry i meant safe max limit of clocks on core and memory, im aware of temp limits.
Just done a 1337core 3506memory run was fine, tried a 1357 / 3550 = FAIL. lol, i guess ive hit the limiter.

Can someone tell me why I'm not getting 120fps? In BF3 Multiplayer, and this is the Precision graph. I have the 2500k @ 4.5Ghz, and no cores are hitting a full load. I have Adaptive V-Sync on but it shouldn't be doing anything at these framerates since I'm not at 120. You can see that GPU usage on both 680's is around 60-65% and I'm holding somewhat steady around 90fps. Does everyone's adaptive v-sync let them sit at 120fps if the cards don't have a full load on them?

EVGA is definitely the most popular, so I would've expected the bigger increase from them.
I wonder when the SC and SC+ will show up on Newegg.

Yeah, the Radeon 7970's did that too for the first few weeks, these will come back down soon enough.

Does anybody know if I can run a 520 along side my 2 680s in SLi?

 

I'd like to have SLi going to my main monitor and the 520 powering the left and right monitors.

 

Possible?

I have a zotac 680, and have owned two 570's and still own a 580 all from zotac. Reference is reference, so it should perform the same as any other company. The 680's specifically have yellow and simple black. Pictures are in this thread here http://www.overclock.net/t/1232673/kepler-folding-performance/40

As far as rma and other customer service I can give you no advice, no card has gone bad on me, and I use microcenters replacement plan.

A note maybe to heed. Zotac does not give out bios updates for changing fan profiles, it is however pretty easy to change it yourself with nibitor and nvflash for windows.

edit: just realized something, it also came with assasins creed 1, 2, and revalations. Actual game disc, not codes to download them. My 570's and the 580 all came with a prince of persia game.

So figured I'd give the card a lil OC testing and was curious:

1. What software can I use to capture actual FPS in games (I know precision server works in Crysis 2, but isn't working in Skyrim). Is there an alternative
2. What should I use for benchmarks? 3DMark, Heaven, Uningine(?)....anything else?
3. What stability test should I run?

Cheers...
