I'm concerned esp because I read that 120Hz can only be accessed with only one particular port, don't remember which one it is though.
Can anyone using this card with a 120Hz monitor shed some light on this issue?
Thanks a lot!

It works perfectly fine with a 120Hz monitor. It's a top end card, it if wouldn't, it would be quite pathetic :d.

PS. I'm using it with a 120Hz monitor. Specifically, an Alienware AW2310 OptX.

Got a question about using the GTX 680 Lightning on a Rampage 4 Formula X79 MB with a Noctua NH-D14. I obviously know that it won't fit with the reactor cap as there is only a 1-3mm clearance, but will it fit without the reactor cap? Anyone using the card on a R4F with an Air Cooler?

The GTX 680 back plate looks like it sicks out a bit from the card. I've currently got my GTX 580 Lightning in that first PCI-e x 16 slot, but that doesn't have a back plate and I had to run electrical tape around the wire clips of the NH-D14 as one clip touches a component on the back of the card. Also, how hot do the components get on the card? The electrical tape wouldn't melt would it?

I know that it will work with a 120Hz monitor. But thats not my question.

What port are you using to connect the card to the monitor? DP, HDMI, VGA, DVI?

AFAIK, HDMI doesnt have the bandwidth to provide 120Hz. DP is required for it. Now that I rechecked, I found out that the card has a DP of its own and I'll just need a DP cable in order to connect it to a 120Hz screen and get 120Hz.

Thanks anyways! smile.gif

No. It won't fit. I know this for a fact unfortunately frown.gif

You would have to take the backplate off.

Get a H100 and you'll be fine wink.gif

You can use a mini-DP to DP cable. That's what I used for my 7970 Lightning and S27A950D...

For all those wondering, disabling DOF in Metro 2033 will greatly reduce the FPS drop, but won't sacrifice quality.

Yeah I never play it with DoF on. Can't even notice the difference really.

I've received my new MB today, the ASUS Z77 Sabretooth today. Putting my old into my wife's "work" PC.

Just figured I share, and ask, should I upgrade to IB and make use of the board or stay at 2500K. Which btw, reached 5GHz today at max 65c stressing.

I think I'm going to wait to see if/what 2.2.3 AB brings, if we're talking 1400+ consistently then this card will be a no brainer for me. If not then i might consider saving $100 and just going CFX 7970s
