Because they promised voltage control and didnt deliver before my return period.

Ended up getting a ref card with a full cover block for less that does 1300 so I am.

I'm completely over voltage control this generation. Hopefully better luck next time I guess.

So I'm a little unclear on the different BIOS readings and max voltages. Does both the 'old' and 'new' BIOS read a max of 1.308v in software, and you'll only see the difference on a DMM? And Michael, what was your Afterburner graph showing during that 3dMark11 run when the DMM said 1.36v?

So the LN2 bios on the Asus top bios is a no go for me. It does allow 1.21v atleast, but at stock and overclock clocks, any benchmark will stutter. I noticed in gpuz and Afterburner the clocks are fluctuating from 1400MHz down to 1200MHz, and down even further at times, but very frequent.

Also afterburner recognizes my 680 as aircooled and has the fan speed going up and down. So I thought I'd fool everything by setting manual 100% fan speed. but it didn't work.

Oh well, there is always the volt mod for me using my R4E board, or just live with my 1338MHz OC!tongue.gif

i dont know, i didnt have AB running. next time i run it ill try to remember to have AB running and I'll check it out. From the Guru3d article, the "new" bios is supposed to prevent anything over 1.175.. i dunno

frown.gif I wonder what it could be. Could it be something with watercooling? no.. that doesn't make sense confused.gif

for me though, i can finally break 1300mhz! haven't tried any higher. biggrin.gif shame the limit is just 1.21. in gpu-z it says 1.207.

i noticed though, when the gpu is in idle, the lowest it gets is only 1.195. is this the same with you guys with Lightnings on LN2 bios?
is this something to worry about?

also does the fan dust removal at start up heheh pretty cool, i dont mind it

Because I haven't been home since this old BIOS was posted (thank you for your efforts thumb.gif), so, I don't know, but I had both cards definitely showing over 1.175v in AB. But they would show ~1.28v during runs when they'd crash, so I guess the software is way off as has been said, since I would think they'd give themselves more voltage before crashing. I'll check BIOS versions when I get home in 5 hours or so.

I wonder if using a driver pre-304.xx would do anything? I mean I know it's a long shot, but if it's the 680 drivers holding back even the unlocked LN2 BIOS, would using a driver with no specific ties to the 680 allow for a higher VID for the offset to add to? I don't know, just throwing ideas out there since I can't do it myself at the moment. But I would definitely be interested in the Afterburner Extreme version, if anyone can offer any info on this if they've attempted obtaining it before?
