Respectfully superericla, i'm sure you're aware that the reference GTX 680 does not generally overclock anywhere near 1350, in fact out of 3 680s I tried they topped out at a 1240 maximum boost, with others lower than that. Furthermore, all reference 680s are subject to the dreaded 70C throttle which doesn't happen on the lightning - and most reference 680s do hit high temperatures unless you use high manual fan settings which will make your overclock unenjoyable.
Now i'm not sure if you have an extrodinary chip, or if you're testing with wacky conditions (vsync on, low ambient temps, water cooling) but 1350 is definitely not the norm. I'd say 99.9% of reference 680s won't last an hour with ultra crysis 2 at 2560 resolution with vsync turned off, not even close. Like I said though maybe you got REALLY lucky? I dunno your statement just seems inflammatory especially with the kookoo emote that you put there....come on. Lastly, the voltage isn't fully unlocked yet. I'm getting this with 1.21V.Edited by xoleras - 6/27/12 at 7:29am
