The Lightning exhausts air into the case the same way the DC II does, and any other cooler that is not a blower style.

Well I'm also hoping for an actual memory OC as well, since my DC2 TOP doesn't like anywhere near 1600 on the mem (6400 effective) which is kinda crap.

What's are the max temps you guys have seen with maxed voltage? Preferably custom fan profile, looking for both benchmark and gaming temps

If you're running single card i'm pretty sure you would never go past 60C ever. Even with maxed voltage.

SLI, thats a different story...the top card will get warmer. I tested single card briefly and getting 1400+ mhz was ridiculously easy, and I still had good temps on air. Obviously things are different in SLI, its more difficult to get huge overclocks in SLI

To be specific, I tested single card briefly and in that configuration I hit 1402 with ease and my temps were around 53-54c at 100% manual fan. That was with maxed voltage. I know I could have gone higher but I didn't really bother. You will need manual fan at high voltages to optimize your temperatures, you won't have temp issues-- trust me-- as long as long as you don't do something stupid like running auto fan while overclocked.

I mention this because I see people trying to get 1350mhz on auto fan, which I find ridiculous TBH because people knew a couple of years ago to not use auto fan for overclocking (not sure what changed in the past 2 years)... 99% of people can't do that regardless of core temps.

Ya well, the bests gpu coolers on air focus on cooling the gpu itself, not the whole case.... If you have a descent air flow in your case, it will do no difference and those coolers are better than the crappy closed box ones...

My card hits over 70c at 1400mhz, at 100% fan during heavy gaming sessions. Otherwise temps are in the low 50's at low 1300's.

Which shouldnt be an issue for any modern day PC case with moderate airflow to exaust the hot air.

I'm discussing pre-order/special OCN members discount with Gary@Sidewinder. I'll be putting up a new survey so you can submit your name; OCN name and contact details so I can inform you of final pricing and when the blocks will officially be available through sidewinder.
more information please see this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1275528/please-read-possible-680-lightning-waterblock-from-ac/0_30
edit:
Please fill in this survey if you're interested. Need to let gary know roughly how many blocks he'll need to order as well as a way of contacting you wink.gif

  • Page 2 (labeled AB 2.2.3) of the spreadsheet is now up to date. If I accidentally missed your OC, shoot me a PM and let me know..
  • As a reminder, the the first sheet of the spreadsheet is reserved for OC results using AB 2.2.2 with 1.215v, while the second page is reserved for OC results using AB 2.2.3 with greater than 1.215v.
  • I may decide to switch the sheet order, having the newer OC results on top and the older results on second sheet.. i dunno, we'll see.
