Yeah, agreed with you. Getting 1400+ in sli is hard because temps on the top card will be high, I mean, I could do it but temps definitely get warm. It will be easier in single card mode for sure though - temps in SLI easily exceed single card temps by a lot. Make no mistake kepler without throttling can get warm. I'm not saying a lot of people will get 1400, some will some won't but since the lightning does not have thermal or overcurrent throttle (while the classified does) it will get warm at 1.35V+ / 1400mhz. Its doable but definitely would be better on water. I don't feel like using 100% manual fan 24/7 lol.
If you simply lower voltage by about 20-30 mV and clockspeeds 20-40 your temps will be WAY WAY better which IMHO is more worth it. With water these babies will fly though , I cannot wait to see what clocks FtW420 gets. I really cannot wait for blocks to be released (and they are being developed)
Maybe i'll get a universal block though ! drool.gif

i'm just waiting for pricing from sidewinder's before we go about putting a method to implement preorder (OCN discounts)

I used the newer BIOS briefly and noticed that it doesn't black screen on an overclock instability crash, it always TDRs.......(I was using 3A just to test it out)

Not sure what the voltage is with the newer one. Other things: Dust removal fans at startup is gone, not sure of any other differences. Thats a sure way to tell if you have the old bios, the old bios always has the dust removal spinup at startup.

1350 core stable in H3 and 3DM11, still under 70°C. Never thought I'd see that on these 2 cards thumb.gif

I thought the dust removal fan speed was cut in half.

Crazy that your 1350MHz in Heaven only beats my score by 1 fps even though my 7970 Lightnings were clocked only to 1225MHz. I can't wait to see if I can get 1300MHz on my Sapphire 7970's under water.

As far as 3dmark11 goes, I have no chance against you guys...

The 1350 score was a little higher, and I don't have a 3930K.

I just flashed my Galaxy GTX 680 SOC with the LN2 bios and I'm unlocked. I'm getting up to 1.3V as reported by AB, and I know it's happening because I just did a loop at 1377 without crash. And at pure stock I couldn't even do 1300 (1.175v max).
