Yeah, i'm not too happy with mine, I can't even run haven at +100 without a crash at the default settings, turning haven to max is lol'able right now.
( under water at 45°c )
Also, I noticed that the heatsink on the reference 580 is much better quality than the 680 (my 580 has an all copper bottom, where the 680 has just copper over the GPU... I do want to swap them to see if it makes a difference, but am too lazy to take my water block off.
I have a 15 day return policy on my card, ( minus 15% restocking fee ) and Unless I can hit some decent oc's within that time, its going back for a 7970 that I know I can hit 1200mhz on. or just go back to my 580 until all this is sorted out. ( which i'm really tempted to do )
GTX 680... I am dissapoint.
680 not worth it. ( unless you are upgrading from an old set up )
yes its new gen and expectedly faster than previous gen, but it is 100% clear to me now that these cards are a marketing ploy, just a 560/570 equivilant OC'd from the factory with a 680 sticker slapped on the box because Nvidia failed to bring the heat.Edited by Jixr - 4/4/12 at 10:11am
