I haven't commented in here in a while. Does anybody know of a good way to add a support for the weight of my GTX 690 + Koolance waterblock? I bought an EVGA back plate originally before realizing how flimsy it was and resold it again (I could have literally folded it in half with just a few fingers). The weight of my card causes it to sag and warp over time. I'm using a thick piece of stiff tube squeezed under my card to push upwards. The temps between the two GPUs are normally within a couple degrees of one another but without support, that variance increases by 10-15c which means that the warping of the PCB is affecting the GPU contact to the cooling block. Does anybody know of any elegant solutions?

Lol can't finish a session of 3dmark on 1215mhz without throttling like crazy but I can play Metro LL @ 1228mhz fluid boost clock...strange stuff. Really hope there is a way to lift the Power Limit on this thing.

To everyone looking to buy a GTX 690 over in the states, there are a ton of 690's going for $650-$700 on amazon's sale section under the warehouse sales.

I was going to order one, unfortunately they won't post to the UK.

You don't want one.... 2GB is now not enough, especially for the new games coming. 3GB is now the bare minimum standard imo.

It appears that anti aliasing is what eats up my VRAM and if you're gaming at 2560x1440 and turn anti-aliasing off it's perfect. As far as I can tell, anti aliasing doesn't help edges at that resolution and but what it does do is make surfaces appear a bit more shiny and artificial which I don't like. For a price in the area of $700 it blows all the other cards out of the water.

If anybody wants my EVGA GTX 690 Signature Edition + Koolance VID-NX690 waterblock already attached using a heavy amount of Shin-Etsu MicroSi G751 TIM let me know. I haven't decided to sell it but if somebody is willing to buy it I might entertain offers. It overclocks at over 130+ MHz GPU and Mem gets 300-500 MHz overclock, maybe more (I noticed I get a higher overclock since switching to an X79 platform but I haven't pushed it to find out how high). Temps have always been kept at or bellow 40c.

Those are 4gb, 690's don't come smaller than that.

And the memory bandwith thing is getting old. Having owned a GTX780 I can say that my FPS is far better with my GTX690, the raw GPU power more than makes up for the 1GB difference.
I haven't had a single problem concerning memory bandwith @ 1440p, even with 4xMSAA on different games. It probably helps that we have ~21k graphics score power on our hands wink.gif

Assuming you have an Android phone Save a Search on ebay for GTX 690 so it alerts you to new listings. I have seen them go for £410 and £450 (used) recently.

2GB is still plenty for single monitor gaming. Even at 2560x1440 which is what I use, I don't come close to using 2GB worth of memory and that's playing newer titles as well.

The fact that they advertise having 4GB worth of memory is misleading. It's 2GB per GPU, so even though that's 4GB total, in SLI memory does not add together so you still only have an effective 2GB worth of memory.
