I'm rolling the 306 beta and I've noticed some decreased stability 1402 isn't a stable clock anymore. 1377 seems to be my new stable clock. Also since AIDA64 has been updated I tend to get red screens out of no where. 60c temps low clock 945~MHz. I have turned it off and will do some more testing to see if the problem persists but so far it seems to have cured it. I'm a little disappointed that the 306 drivers caused me to lose clocks. Maybe this issue will be fixed in a final release.

Anyone else have trouble with Aida or instability at a overclock once 306 was installed?

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

These blocks are fantastic, 2 Lightnings in sli first 3D11 run at 1350 core 1728 on Ram, both cores at 39 degree's, very promising.
If you are thinking about getting these blocks I would say jump on these they are just great.

Now to up my CPU past 5.0 and GPU???

Menthol, how many items do you have in your loop? 40C in a benchmark run is pretty darn good, I'm hoping I can get something similar with 2 GPUs and 1 CPU in a loop.

Good God xoleras, I cannot wait to see you Graphics score once you get them under water biggrinsmiley.gif With your Lightnings, you won't have to upgrade until the 800-series, ha.

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.

If you have the 3A BIOS then you don't have to flash, the 3A is pretty much the best BIOS we have. And yeah like xoleras said, the hack shouldn't be used for gaming at all. I don't think people need to spend hours pumping over 1.4v into their card just for ~50 more mhz and an extra 2fps. But for quick benches, temps can stay pretty low, like 3dMark11 with its short Graphics Tests. I had the voltage up to +151mv for a couple runs and I still kept core temp in the 60's and VRM temp in the 50's. So if temps don't have time to climb, then you probably don't have to worry too much about a quick +1.4v run, but not if you can't keep temps relatively low, and never for gaming.

I may have a similar problem with 306. In Arkham City in SLI at 1290mhz, my lower card needed +93mv to be stable, but it was stable. Then today I crashed for the first time. Not sure if it was just a coincidence that it was shortly after I switched over to 306 and it just took a while for that overclock to show itself as unstable, or if it was the new driver.

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 2 loops, a RX360, push pull on my CPU,with the XSPC 750 bay pump, res. a RX480 push pull mother board blocks to my GPU's in series with an EK D5 pump 140 res, combo. 7/16 tubing.
I have a Case Labs Magnum TH10 so I have the space for Rads in just about any configuration.

So after about 45 minutes of BF3, my card crashes yet again... I can't even get 1300MHz stable with this damn card. I'm livid that a card like this can't even out perform my friends EVGA FTW+ card...

+93mV on the core,
+100mV Memory
+50mV Aux
Power limit at 300%
+100 Core
+425 Memory
Fan auto.

Would having my memory that high affect the stability overall for my card? Affecting my core stability?

When the lightning first came out the reviews mentioned how the memory did not OC as well as others. Yes unstable memory will affect your OC.

Hi guys,


i can run my card at 1380core and around 7100 memory speed. heaven score with max setting at 1080p is 1421. Driver used is 304.48

My question is why in Afterburner 2.2.3 i can only increase my power limit to 133%. Can anyone help me? i can post some screenshot after i get home from work. Thank you
