You said it's fine if you don't adjust the overclock while testing it? So set it to 1200 core (after turbo), and then test it.

yeah I can get 1200 stable... guess I'm sticking with that. Really wanted to reach 1300 though. mad.gif

If I test with tessellation then I really get screwed. Do people usually run with that on?

dude, I feel for you, I got a 680 that was a poor overclocker as well, and I did everything I could to it.

the card is technically not defective, but depending on where you bought it, try to see if you can return or exchange it for a different one. But depending on the vender, and with the limited supply of the 680, you may be stuck with the card.

I do have a 680 that OCs to 1320 core, my other 680 can get as high as 1292 before crashing on me...Both are reference cards.....

As for OP... It is true...some cards to OC better than others, I have been very lucky with both of my cards, but i see most usually get from 1180-1250 on core.... Try a more aggressive fan profile to keep temps down and instead of only worrying about core...up the memory speed as well and try to find a balance with them... When i upped the memory speed on my higher clocked card...the core went from 1312 to 1320....This "dynamic" boosting makes OCing it a little trickier than before...

If your card can't handle it on max with extreme tessellation then it's not stable. Infact, I found that after doing over 2 hours of heaven loops that I had to back my overclock down more when I started to test other games.

You won't get much (if any) over 1200 core unless you got a good card. I wouldn't suggest setting memory above +300, and i've seen many get worse than that. I've also seen many set it to +500, but memory intensive games like Skyrim will quickly show you that it's not stable, when heaven will loop for ages and have no issues with +500. It really depends on the card though.

I would say average results:
Just set it to 1200 core when turbo is enabled, and set memory to +300. That *should* be stable.

before you storm off to your room, also know that the turbo boost for the 680 varies card to card, some cards turbo anywhere from 1100-1200, and if you hit 1200 thats not that bad, you can still max out every game out there, unless you have a high res 120hz monitor, or multi monitor set up, I don't think you will be saying "man, 100 more mhz, and this would make this game look so much better"

And I do agree with you, I don't like the locked voltage as well, which is why I went back to my 580, and unless Nvidia changes this in the future, i'm going to switch to team red. at least with the case of a 7970, you should be able to hit 1250+ if you pump enough voltage into it and can keep it cool. So far, there is no official reason why voltage is locked on the 600 series, IMO, its either a cost cutting measure in maufacturing, or trying to reduce the number of RMA's from over cooked units.

Yeah I'm getting way better results pumping up the Mem speeds more and just keeping the core clock low. Thanks for the info. I got ****ed frown.gif

just another note, if you are monitoring temps and core clock during benchmarking, the 680 does not start to downclock itself until 70c, so try to adjust your fan profile to keep it under 70 if you can. under 70c, watercooling or on air didn't make a difference in OC stability.

and you didn't get (blank)'ed, the 680 is a very good card, You just had your hopes a little high. ( as did I when I bought mine )
