[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 118

post #1171 of 7827
1392mhz in SLI, note i'm using ivy bridge so my physics score is not as good as SB-e. Note the graphics score

My temps are high during benching at these voltages so i'd like to put these cards under water as soon as blocks are available.

With SB-E this would be over 21k total I believe. I do think this is the highest graphics (not combined) score recorded on OCN

Even with voltage unlocked bios, are you guys capping around 1.325v? That is what the classy is maxing at without any soldering, as it is being limited by the current sense resistors controlling overcurrent protection.

Long day at work today. Can't wait to see what it will do. I am hoping 1400, since I can hit 1350/7200 in 3DM11 already, and 1331 stable in Heaven/all games.

Xoleras - are you sure those cards are stable at those speeds? Often if they are oc'ed too high you'll actually lose scores. 2 of my classy's in sli at stock speeds net 28962 graphics score.

I will double check this evening but I believe so. The lightning does not thermal or overcurrent throttle, so your clockspeeds will stick on the lightning during benching even at super high voltages..

The temps are high at around 1400mhz/1.3V, no doubt about that.....but I am running in SLI so that is a consideration. My top card would near 75-76C and the bottom mid 60s during stress testing at high voltages/speeds, but would not throttle. For this I am going to look at water blocks whenever they're available.

Your graphics score in 2 way SLI is absolutely not 28962. The world record on file currently is 27k on LN2 with 2 GK104s at 1800mhz.

This is the world record SLI graphics score:

And I know for a fact you're not beating that score wink.gif edit: you're also understanding that i'm looking at the graphics score only in 2 way SLI with no other cards installed right?

You're right, that's my bad. I had just peeked quick at my screenshots not realizing that was for tri sli, stock. My apologies.

Regarding the bios, do you think there's any reason a classy would reject the lightning bios? Tried it last night and it didn't like it so much...

Newegg should be getting an open box Lightning today because I RMA'd mine last week for a refund. It will do 1322 and has the old bios so keep an eye out for it if anyone is interested in picking up another card. I guess its a good thing I did.

This whole voltage thing is getting ridiculous. Thats part of the fun of high end video cards. Theres some sort of kepler conspiracy for sure ha. I should of just originally stuck with my 7970 that let me play with voltage. Anyways, best of luck to everyone. You guys still have some of the highest clocking 680s around.

not just part of the fun, it part of the value of those cards. Its what gives them high resell values and what allows them to last potentially years longer than their lower end counterparts!

Well,

When I got up this morning and saw the PAGES of posts I missed since about midnight last night I knew the new afterbrner was released and then when I saw that the unhindered BIOS was only on the first 5000 cards I was sad as I had 6 of those cards in my home before getting rid of em ...

Then of course it became clear we could flash the BIOS, but MOSTLY it was clear how much of a fiasco this KEPLER thing is with regards to high end video cards and especially enthusiast overclocking, you know most of us here who do not want to hard mod a $600-700 investment!

Though the idea of overvolting makes me happy, I think this has further cemented me to get some good 4gb cards like the Galaxy and wait and hope NVIDIA get their S**T together for us next round,, and nvidia if you ARE reading this I will go right to AMD as well once they get a decent stereo 3d solution if you don't fix this voltage stuff by then!

On another note it seems that those of you with more golden gpu's will have some GREAT numbers under water!!! smile.gif
