He's still got me by a hair, my physics score just blows chunks.

Yeah yours are awesome too. You gotta try the edit and see what happens, if your temps will allow.

Lightning unfortunately will be going back since I cannot clock it as high and mine also came with the unlocked bios so that wasnt an issue.

Yeah that Windforce you got seems pretty nice indeed.

Well, I may sell mine, for whatever I can get for them, and take another shot at the Lottery. It seems like I can't do too much worse, so why not. 1320mhz with 2.2.3 is good, but not as great as many on here. Worst-case scenario I get one that clocks similarly. I think I'll go for it.

Mine was doing 1325mhz and 500+ mem on the Regular bios which is good but when I switched over to the LN2 bios for more voltage I had a lot of stability issues.

I just don't see how LN2 BIOS is less stable , thats weird, it is always more stable for every person i've spoken to. Unless you max voltage sliders out from the getgo, which is a stupid thing to do and a horrible way to OC a card. The max voltages are way overkill. Further, it doesn't completely matter what the core temp is because there are a lot of mission critical components that get way too hot if you max anything and everything.

Anyway, I just don't understand some people I guess. I must be the only person here that doesn't really give a f* about 3dmark11...the good score is nice but in games it makes 2 fps difference, I don't care to impress people in 3dmark11, that wasn't my goal. I used lightning 580s prior and really enjoyed them, really fast and OC'ed very well on air (even though I used low speeds for 24/7 cruising).

There must be a clear differnece in personalities on OCN, those that only care about benchmarks and those that use their computers for real world stuff and games on the side. I am definitely the latter, i'm not out to impress people in 3dmark11. You can make an argument that its a 600$ card etc etc and I can definitely respect that opinion but I still think you're all crazy to go through the hassle of changing cards for 50 more mhz lol. My only goal with my cards was 1290 or higher for 24/7 cruising and I was happy. Definitely far better than reference cards. I still love you all though. wink.gif

Like I said, I can respect the other argument, hoepfully nobody takes this the wrong way. I love you allwink.gif. Its 600$ and you want the best. Well, its silicon lottery which does suck.

I think 1300-50 is probably the sweet spot for everyday use with these so far. Ive only overclocked to 1350, and i am completely happy with that. I know it could go much further but for everyday gaming no need.

You know, you replied exactly the way that I expected you too as an overly defensive little prick. No one can say a damn thing about the lightning unless its something positive without you going into this mode that you get into. Also no, I didnt just go straight into maxing the voltages as you so wrongly assumed that I must have done rolleyes.gif I just noted some issues with the LN2 bios that I didnt get under the standard bios, I wasnt dogging the card but OF COURSE you would take it that way.

With that said the cards that I purchase and return are none of your concern neither are the places that I purchase them from.

I don't care what you do. I can't be bothered to spend 48 hours and more money on 25mhz. Like I said I respect and understand your outlook on video cards and I can understand why you are doing what you do. Its 600$. I get it. 600$ and you want the best. That said, I still think you're crazy wink.gif
