Yep, didn't realize it was the mouse software at first.

Simple fix is go into the Nvidia Control Panel, set the "Global Settings -> Power Management Mode" to 'Adaptive', and then in the "Programs Settings" tab, set the individual programs you want to run at "Maximum Performance". That way the card will only refrain from downclocking when one of those manually-adjusted programs is open.

I have measured today , on a default BIOS , the AFB readout of 1.175 makes around 1.2 in real, will try with the LN2BIOS as well.

Awesome scores guys. I barely broke 13k with my best run, How much did the waterblock help clocks?

i don't know ... I mounted the waterblock almost at once smile.gif

however I think that the card is still far from its maximum potential ... This winter I could get nearly 1.6GHz biggrin.gif

Is the 680 Lightning still worth buying for overclocking? Or do they all come with the speculated voltage locked bios? I ask because I'm seriously thinking of buying one tonight

Suppose I pull the trigger and it comes with the locked bios. Where can I find instructions on how to flash the bios? tongue.gif
