I got the exact same heaven score keeping the card between 60C-70C, as I did keeping it at 78C-82C. Less than a 1FPS diff on min/avg/max. If I adjust fan to go above 82C, that's when scores start to slightly go down... but 82C is very hard to reach on this card.
Current OC is +135 core/+500 memory and it's 1 hour heaven stable (haven't tested longer). Extreme tess, 1080p, 4x AA, 16x AF, and all other settings maxed I get about 30FPS min, 64FPS average, 160max. My 580 got 44FPS average and 11FPS minimum while overclocked on the same settings.

OK...maybe some of the GPU's are hitting the limit before the thermal/TDP limit. Can you try it at 85%?

I'll be posting up my results sometime on Monday or Tuesday, as long as my MCW82 bolts right onto this thing. Wish me luck thumb.gif

I just did a temp comparison and the card performs the exact same in heaven at 59C, 72C, and 80C. It is not downclocking before 80C.... at least for me. The temp shown was the temp for the majority of the test, given a few C difference at times.

Scores have the card at +135/+500.

Yea it's really quiet until about 70%, but it's still bearable at 85%. 1100RPM = 30%, 4200RPM = 85%.

I can keep it at 73C load and cannot hear it with the above overclock.

Thanks for the tests. It might be possible that it is in the driver as that review used the older drivers. It might have been raised to 80C.

Can you guys report if you are overclocking single GPU's or 680's in SLI? It's difficult to keep track.

I have two 680's in SLI and they crash Heaven 2.5 at only +130/+400. The thing is I also have the fan at 100% and they run really cool maxing out at only mid 50's C yet it still crashes at what I would consider a fairly low over clock.

My 7970's were much easier to overclock and had more overclock headroom to boot.

Single. Why are you using 2.5 over 3.0 just wondering?

And I do agree, these cards are subpar in overclocking so far. I've tried every possible combo. I'm at +135/+500 but I still get random strange flashes in heaven.. and I don't know why, i've tried to troubleshoot it but it's only happens maybe once every 2-3 runs and it's not crashing so it may just be drivers.. Or I need to back down to +130/+450 or so... considering people on here are claiming +600 mem stable it would be crazy there's that much overclock difference depending on the card.

When you say 130 what is the exact clock speed? There appear to be 8 OC steps. 130 only adds 130Mhz to each step. So there could be 2 people with 130 but 1 could be at 1150 and the other 1200. You have to look at the actual clock speed. And what's really great is each game could be at different clocks. lol

Look at the GPU boost table

http://www.anandtech.com/show/5699/nvidia-geforce-gtx-680-review/4

Each step is 13Mhz apart. The 130 adds 130Mhz to each.

It's like 1190MHz *with* boost according to GPU-Z, which I will call pretty pathetic. Like a 13% overclock. Not sure how Zotac claims to be releasing a 2GHz core version on air.

The card needs a way to disable that. It only takes 1 step to be unstable for it to result in a unstable overclock. If we could just force a solid voltage and core freq we could probably overclock better... or at least give us voltage control where we can increase the voltage to all those steps.

I got it now. The top step is limited to 70C and the steps below it are designed for a higher thermal level. So you say you can get to 82C and you are at 1190(1180) that is 3 steps up from the base clock. There are 5 more steps to 70C so each step has a 2C lower thermal limit moving up the chart.

Further, what this means is that you might get a higher clock speed with a lower GPU boost. Since the thermal thresholds are mapped out you simply pick the GPU boost which allows you to OC higher up the chart.

You posted earlier that you can go higher if you set the voltage to 1.175? Try lower than 135 and monitor the core clock.

I think the whole idea of "Stepping" is completely stupid. All we need is an idle clock and a 3D clock. Nothing more.

Also, my two 680's don't seem to have the same speed when overclocked in SLI even though I set the sliders to sync. Another pointless change.
