Are you running in stretched mode vs centered? I think you can pick up a little by running it stretched.

then the bench(3d mark 2011) with the bios LN2 make me stutter \ drop fps
which does not happen with the stock bios
sorry for my english

I can't see all of your AB results, but it looks like GPU 2 has 0 Utilization. Your SLI isn't working. Do you have SLI enabled in the Nvidia control panel, have the bridge installed, have the PCI-E power cable connected, and have the PCI-E slot enabled on your MB?

I don't think it's a problem with your card unless it's just dead, you might try swapping cards and see if you can get it to run in the other slot.

Could this card run on 660watt? 3770k, 16GB ram.

Clean driver install is what I recommend.

Yeah, I d do the same
BTW, thanks dph314... but I think that s the end of the way for me thumb.gif on air and without the V boost .Anyway, I m happy -
Ibought ASUS GTX 680 first week after the release- did 1215 max, then it wend dead /R I P /
RMA- bought EVGA , was worse -max 1175 ! Sold it and than the Lightning came .. so .. happy chappy here biggrin.gif

Hello Guys My 680 L arrive with the new LN2 .A3 BIOS. Fist impression this thing is a beast compare to my 670 PE which I thought is a big card (and now on its way back to vendor). To the point.... I haven't test it a whole lot because I got a new corsair 650D case to accommodate the card most of the time I spend o cable management (and listening to my wife what kind of mess I did..boxes, tools, more boxes).

I move the voltage all the way up I gave me a value of +93mv

Here is a question I left power limit at 100% should it be increased while over clocking and if yes is there any good value to start with?

The core I add +200 so my frequency jumped up to 1402 MHz

I only Run 3Dmark 11 P preset Test completed my GPU Score was somewhere at ~ 12500
The benchmark run really nice but two times I got like a green flare that lasted no longer than a blink of an eye.
What should I do to eliminate that problem?

Just got my Lightning installed today. I will be OCing and benching it soon. What a monster card. I am going from SLI GTX 570s to this. Here are the screens:





Can't wait to see what this card can do.

Got my Lightning now for a week or so, but i must say i'm very disappointed with its overclock results. Paying extra for cards with special quality components and settings basically, but getting less than what probably a normal gtx 680 would do frown.gif

My card does around 1325-1335MHz on the gpu (which is not super bad but my goal of 1350MHz will simply crash over and over) and MAX 6500MHz on the memory(6600MHz works but will give crappy performance in Heaven, plus very very subtle artifacts after a while in GW2) with bios1 with;

93+ mV on the core
+0 aux
+0 memory
133% Power Limit

Been trying everything to get it higher but it simply won't be stable. My memory absolutely hates ANY extra voltage at all and will make it artifact even quicker, even playing with aux voltage doesn't seem to do anything. But then i got some hope again because someone mentioned not being able to do much on bios 1, but bios2 was a world of difference.
Didn't really wanted to toy with that since i bought this card for gaming and not benchmarking at all, but i decided to give it a shot. After all, (my personal goal of) 1350/6900-7000 was not that hard to achieve for most of you.

Bios 2;

Basically nothing changes at all, even putting the Power Limit on 300% and everything else on max (+50mV on the core though) will not make much difference.
My Memory just flat won't go any further than 6600 without giving artifacts, even with more voltage and the higher power limit. Tried everything basically, even giving it - voltage but without succes.
And what's weird as well; +300% Power Limit alone (so without extra voltage) just does nothing at all for either memory or the GPU clocks. The GPU just needs at least that +50mV to not crash on 1325MHz.

The core i haven't tried much higher since i thought +25MHz won't be that much of a difference, i just need the memory to go higher.
I knew i should have kept that other card that did 1325 on the core with +50mV and 6900MHz on the memory without any extra voltage at all (bios1)... too bad the box was opened, that's why i sent it back for a new one.

So guys, is this normal or do i just have a crappy card?
3th MSI for me that just doesn't overclock well at all (had 2x 6950's), think i'll be looking at a different brand next time.

no ... SLI works but I have disabled it!

Scores are low on the bench with bios ln2
the use of the gpu bios ln2 is low and the fps drop \ stutter
I formatted it yesterday .... but the problem remains.

I see a lot of people posting their overclocks that are purely for maximum benchmark performance, but I would like to see what people are able to do with everyday gaming overclocks that hit that nice performance/noise sweet spot. Just got my card in recently and am still toying around and getting used to Afterburner. From my very brief time playing with overclocks, it seemed that I was reaching a point where it was downclocking to almost default boost speeds and to that 70c threshold with not too much of an OC. I was just using Kombustor to quickly test, will download the other programs once I get a moment.
