Hi, thanks for the reply smile.gif. So how is this bios any different to the old unlocked ln2 bios?. I dont have a multimeter, but I should be able to get one in time. So far i'm quite happy with the card, currently I've lowerd the vcore to about 1.203~1.205 and had the core at 1300mhz, and have run heaven benchmark a few times stably and played bf3 for about 45 mins. Not sure if that's a good OC, but 1300 without a hiccup seems good to me for a first run smile.gif. Gonna try find the max I can do, then move to the memory.

The newer unlocked BIOS won t give you the need to do a hard reboot after the failure during overclocking.
My card runs 1300mhz @ 1.175 or so and yes, it s a nice overlock, most of the "regular " GTX 680 go up to 1250MHz and no more.

Believe me, I had 3 of them...biggrin.gif

Haha, 3 of them! Gosh. In South Africa buying one is about all you can afford! Let me put it this way, The lightning through neweggs costs you guys using dollars 549$, to buy the same card here in South Africa costs about 650$ frown.gif. Luckily I got it second hand though smile.gif

Well in the days to come i'll come on and share my benches and what not. I think I should first see what my max default bios can do with the card...

Trying to search the thread for any Nvidia Surround users. Anyone with two of these beasts regretting not getting 4gb cards for their 3 monitors? I just picked up one here from someone nearly new for $520, and can't wait to get a second one.

I'll be running at 5760x1080 (plus whatever my bezel correction will be) and I've been worried that i'll regret not getting 4gb cards for nvidia surround.

Can anyone speak from experience, and maybe shed some light on my whole situation? I'm diving in thinking I'll get much better performance with the lightning cards + a huge OC, vs the 4gb cards with hardly any OC.

Anywho I'm going to be happy either way. I finally get Adaptive Vsync (which I honestly think will be a LIFE saver.) I've heard it helps with microstutter so much... I can't even stand my 7970's anymore because of that very reason.

I was getting into the 14k scores I was after, but didn't do as well as I had hoped to. I did get a better score with z77 but wasn't able to save it, the motherboard went, I had to go back to x79 & ended up with this http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4193929

Vga was at 1668/1752 @ about 1.575V, on z77 I did finish a run at 1700/1800 at 1.6V but crashed pressing the save, turned out the mobo blew a memory channel, will only boot single channel now.
The 3930k would pass with less volts, but higher voltage was adding a bit to the physics score so ran it higher.
