Maybe the card you bought was sitting there for a little while, and the freshly-shipped ones just recently getting to retailers are the gimped ones. Either way I hope you got a 'real' Lightning.
Who's to say how long they had it or when it was manufactured, nether one of mine will bench past 1350 by themselves or 1325 in sli at 1.35 volts, got blocks today, maybe i'll benchmark them separately and maybe not, gettin kind of tired of overclocking and locking up and going again. I will take a break and try soon.

Get the 3A BIOS, it doesn't make you reset every crash thumb.gif

Water will definitely help. Maybe 1350mhz in SLI? Which is something I wish I could do frown.gif Damn my other card.

Flashed to bios without fan spin up at start without problem.

I got the card for 1 month now with the exactly same versions of BIOS, so it might really have been there for a while...

Operation water cooled MSI lightning 680s commences over the next 2 weeks biggrin.gif

Gonna take my time and do my WC build right! Its my first! I'm seriously looking forward to doing benchmarks with max voltage without having to use 100% fans. 1402mhz is nice but 1402 mhz at whisper quiet settings .. even better!

don't forget a build log or pictures thumb.gif

and report your temps and new OC's of course wink.gif

Oh I will!

Question for you if you know! I'm torn between going with a quiet build with a RX360 and 1500ish rpm fans versus a black ice GTX 360 rad with better fans - and with a fan controller to manipulate fan speed.

Is it possible to get high rpm fans with a Black Ice rad and maintain a quiet build (with a fan controller mind you). I'm pretty torn right now. I don't want a noisy system but I also want max performance, so i'm trying to find the perfect balance between the two!

I have my card for a few days now and I did some playing around with it Friday night. I have the 80.04.28.00.3A LN2 BIOS. I have not tried to flash it because I wanted to see what this on can do do. Without the hack I made 1300 core and did not play with the mem. I hacked it using the java editor with a 125 voltage (didnt know how high I should go on air so this seemed like a safe number) and made 1360 core. Played with the mem and got 6912 with 30 (again air and seemed like safe number) on the mem voltage. Temps where 68 for a maxed out Heaven run (see screen shot for details) which to me did not seem like a bad temp with the fans only going maybe 45% max. I have a couple of questions. How do you save the core voltage value? I saved the profile in afterburner but after a reboot the core voltage went back to 93 max. Do I have to do the java hack everytime I want to use the card with these values? That would suck. Also, what max voltage would be considered safe for 24/7 OC? I plan on doing some max out testing to see where the card can go but I would like to run the 1360/6912 or better 24/7 if that is safe. Again that wont happen if I cant save the core voltage value somehow. Here is the screen of the Heaven run.

The hex edit? That is much better suited to real LN2, I don't believe anyone on air should use it ever personally......1.4V or higher is really high. Insanely high, even. Afterburner allows you up to 1.37V .

Secondly, there is a limitation with afterburner, you have to re-apply voltages after reboot. A new version of afterburner may fix that.

hmmm
Yes to your question....restriction is very high in the "GTX" series rads. They've got a super high FPI and do need high RPM fans to shine.
In the end; its up to you of course wink.gif

I went with a RX480 myself instead of a GTX 480 rad.

hello Guys I was playing crysis 2 for good 2h on my LN2 Bios stock and suddenly ma game turned into rainbow I don't know how to describe it but it was multi color everywhere. I had to exit it and everything was great I do have to mention that the card was in upper 60 C and it was supper humid that day in Chicago. Could that be temps or maybe latest beta driver?? then I played again for another 2 hours and it was fine.
