[TT] MSI Geforce GTX 680 Lightning Spotted - Page 68  

post #671 of 900
Nice, do you have most of your custom loop stuff together yet?

I've purchased about half of mine, I honestly don't really care to add my CPU to the loop since IB doesn't benefit from water much it seems. But lightning 7970s should be great on water...

What is the max voltage of the 7970 Lightning? Also, they don't seem to go over 1300mhz often?

Up to 1.8V for LN2...

I traded in the 7970 Lightnings for Sapphire OC's so I could use the reference EK blocks. The Lightning block they are releasing has the CSQ design which I am NOT putting in any rig of mine!

And is that normal for SLI? Losing a few mhz? Like my one went from 1372mhz to 1350mhz, and the other went from 1302mhz to 1296mhz stable. Memory took a bigger hit.

Sorry, I don't want to make a new thread for every little question, so that's just why I'm posting it here. I appreciate all of the help.

Totally normal. They never OC as high in SLI as they do on their own in my experience...

Agreed with Majin. Single card overclocks are always higher than SLi or crossfire, every dual gpu setup i've had has been like this. Its harder to sync the data at super high overclocks between the two cards, i'm guessing.

Well BF3 is running beautifully with one card, may not use the second one as often as I did before. On the references, fastest I could run it was 1265-1270mhz. Just played multiplayer for 1.5 hours @ 1350mhz/6700mhz and it ran beautifully. Framerate never went below 70fps and highest temp was 61C (stock fan profile).

Anyone heard anything on 2.2.3 yet? I don't follow Twitter or anything like that, so, has MSI been quiet about it being a week after it was supposed to be released?

This really pisses me off. Alex I would like some answers if possible.

Sorry to sound harsh but this is just kind of frustrating to hear.

I still don't have a card, sorry. So those MSI reps who declare that 2.2.3 is in active development right now and expected to be released in a few days are misinforming, sorrry. I cannot even predict anything until I get the hardware.

As much as I like this card I'll send it right back if voltage control doesnt happen.
