My Lightnings are starting to come around! Just need to get to 1250/1850MHz and i'll have a killer score!

Do you prefer AB over precision?

Temperature seems to be a limiting factor on some cards.  Stability issues have been seen at temps we consider normally safe such as 80-85c.

 

Most cards can hit 1200 MHz, a lot can hit 1250 MHz, some can hit 1300 MHz, few can hit 1325+

I think for most cards its 1175-1225Mhz. 1250Mhz you got a good card. Over that you got a very good card. 80% will not hit over 1225Mhz. I cant hit 1250Mhz even with 1.3v and Water.

Well I got to 1225MHz with two in CF. I'll keep trying for that 1250MHz but my case limits me temperature-wise...

He's running two cards bro. It changes things a lot. Temperature obviously becomes a much larger issue. It seems as well that both 28nm cards are much more sensitive to temps that two years ago people would have considered good (80-85 degrees).

I finally broke down and bought Z68 mobo and 2500K. Restricted section, here I come. Ya'll better beware, my 680 does +200 in 3D Mark biggrin.gif
post #259 of 416
I vote for the 7970, my 680 is a terrible OC'er, I can't even hit +60mhz without a crash ( and before i'm flamed, yes i'm doing it right )
at 45°c underwater

Back to the store it goes for a 7970 if they have any, if not, back to my beat of an OC'ed 580.
