Strangely it's only the Lightnings and my card that it works with. A few people with ASUS DCII cards tried the BIOS and it only gave them the LN2 1.21 volts and no voltage control and it has the same chip. All the Lightning features work on my card. I would have to take a volt meter and probe for what the aux volt is pushing if at all. Pretty sweet though. Wanted a Lightning but they weren't avail so this Galaxy filled in and she's doing great. I got 1411 to run at 1.26 volts. It throttles down from 1.3 in 3DMark for some reason. Kinda sucks I can't push it.

AFAIK it starts to throttle upon reaching 69-70c, keep the card under that and it should not throttle. Air conditioning units are great for that. Needless to say keep fan at 100% if benching on kepler, these are sensitive to temperature

And price is good too, product + shipping. Besides US that i need to pay around 200 dollars more for my country customs, when the card arrives. So it's better for me to buy from Europe Union, no taxes here.

I had to buy from here from the beginning, not waited 1 month for nothing, in the first place.

It will throttle the moment it gets into benching in only 3DMark that I've noticed. Temps are totally fine. I've benched it at 52 in a fast made cold room and in my normal room with 85 ambient. Highest I seen at those volts was 75 at 80% fan. I haven't noticed any throttling on this card even before the BIOS. I struggled to heat soak it to test but when I did it only throttled at 88 degrees on the Galaxy BIOS and haven't tested it yet on this one for max temp but I don't think it does on the LN2 BIOS

I pulled out my Fluke today to test the voltages on different settings. Switched back to 3A bios (as per above conversations) because the hard crash was pissing me off. My card also runs at 1241MHz on the standard bios, which may affect my voltages. Here are my results (all at load):

Standard Bios
Default Voltage - Software: 1.158V
Default Voltage - Probe: 1.210V

Standard Bios +100mV
Default Voltage - Software: 1.246V
Default Voltage - Probe: 1.311V

LN2 (3A) Bios
Default Voltage - Software: 1.214V
Default Voltage - Probe: 1.253V

LN2 (3A) Bios +100 mV
Default Voltage - Software: 1.281V
Default Voltage - Probe: 1.351V

What I can deduce from this is that, if I'm only wanting a mild +100 overclock, it might not even be worth using the LN2 Bios. Going to do some more testing tonight.

Not bad, so I'm stable at 1360 on the core and 1700(6800effective) on the mem smile.gif These Lightnings sure deliver.

Also, with regards to AB, the +mv bar seems to keep 'dropping' on its own, it's now at +62 (it was 93 or so yesterday and I didn't make any changes). I've restarted AB and re-applied the OC and voltages, but it still does it when I reboot the application. Is this normal as well? It's just not staying at that fixed voltage for some reason... although the mem and AUX stay put. Or, could it just be a reading error on AB?

Just ordered right now with paypal, in max 7 days should be here. smile.gif

Well the price + shipping in usd is 878 usd (converted from 577 euros with dollars) but it's with my 24% VAT taxes, in USA i think it is 19%. So less than 870 usd.
