I plan to pick up a 120Hz or 144Hz monitor and add another 680 (since everyone is unload them for cheap) to run at that refresh rate in BF3/4. I run with vsync disabled, even with triple buffering, it always feels like mouse lag to me. It's not all a selling point, those higher refresh rates really do make a huge difference if you have a machine that can sustain those FPS (without a huge variation). I thought if I used the maxvariablefps 60 command in BF3 that since I was at 1080p/60Hz it should be 'smooth'. It looks 'good' but not nearly as a 'great' as 120fps at the same res. Very odd. Guess it's all preference.

My 144Hz monitor should be here tomorrow, will let you know how it goes.

PS - I'm running the modded bios that increases voltage to 1.212v and core to 1202 boost. For some reason, if I screw with afterburner at all regarding the core, I notice in Gpu-Z it shows the core at only 1006Mhz when under load. I have to re apply the settings in afterburner to bump it back up. Anyone else seeing this?

can someone explain to me if what I'm experiencing is normal, i don't quite understand how 680's overclock just yet.

Boost clock : 1124
Kepler speed after running heaven: 1228

That's stock..

I go to EVGA precision and do +60mhz .. the boost clock is now 60mhz more (1184) but after running Heaven the max speed doesn't change, it still runs at 1228mhz. Is that normal? I thought it would be 1228+60mhz.

So basically editing the clock in EVGA Precision does nothing?

See, this is odd... Remove MSI Afterburner and using Precision X. Using the modded bios I installed last year after I got my card, my core clock never changes from 1201.9. In GPU-Z it will on the right (boost) but in the stability test, in heaven, in crysis 3 (just played for about 45 minutes) they all say the same thing, 1201 (they don't round up). Anyone? Sorry for the ridiculous size, just wanted ya'll to be able to read it okay.

Did a clean install of 320.18. Still oddities I think. At least it's 'speed stepping' properly again. New monitor is a kick. Makes for ridiculously smooth gameplay at those framerates without tearing. Night and day difference and well worth the money.
