1300MHz on stock is a pretty hefty overclock , most "regular " GTX680 do 1200-1250 MHz with 1.175 V overvolting, so what you want is not easy.
Not every card is the same , some need more "juice", that cannot be helped .

Try to put +18mV offset and +60MHz offset and see ...

Oh I know, I know. It's not a bad card, I've seen worse =P

I usually have it running 1300/7114 with +78mv on the core and stock volts on memory.

Is anyone running LN2 BIOS 24/7?

Going to put my order in on Thursday for two of these bad boys and a M5E! Part of a new build, that I've been looking forward to for a while. Super excited to get some cards that can overclock as my old 6870's are crap at overclocking. I'm hoping to squeeze 1300+ on each of them, is that too much to hope for on an sli setup? What real world temps should i be expecting for an sli of these bad boys? Have a Haf X and an h100, so the airflow should be pretty nice. Again, super excited for the cards and to join the owners club!

1300mhz in SLI is entirely probable, yeah. As you can see from mine, you'll have to test the cards and put the better one on top, as there's probably going to be one that does a good amount better than the other. Comes in handy when I only want to use one card for a particular game wink.gif

But yeah temps in SLI aren't bad at all, especially if you have decent fans in your HAF-X, particularly the side-panel one that blows right on the cards. I've ran +93mv in SLI before, and I think I have my fan curve to hit 100% around 64C, just to keep them nice and cool since I usually have headphones on anyways. I've literally never seen either one of my cards hit 70C. Whether in SLI or 3dMark11 runs at 1460mhz/7300mhz (granted 3dMark11 is short, but thats still a lot of mhz/volts), never been in the 70C's before.

I have since the day I got them. I use stock clocks most of the time since these in SLI is more than enough at stock speeds. But the top card is the better one so I usually undervolt it to -50mv core voltage before gaming instead of opening the side panel and switching BIOSs everytime I want a good overclock. It's been stable in every game at the stock 1202mhz at -50mv, so I'm going to start testing the next increment soon.

I got over 1300 in SLI with AB 2.2.2, got over 1400 in SLI (3DMark11 only) with AB 2.2.3. 1300 is my daily driver clock, +400 mem, LN2 BIOS in AB 2.2.2.

So if you get some good ones, 1300 SLI is certainly possible.

Hey dph314, thanks for the response, I'm looking forward to running the cards in the Haf-X. Is there a replacement side fan that you would recommend? I'm excited to see which card ends up doing better, luckily that should be pretty easy as my mobo has the pcie dip switches to turn off the cards to bench each separately, or would you still recommend that I place each card in the top pcie slot for optimal results? Thanks I appreciate it!

As long as it's in one of the x16 PCIe slots then there shouldn't be a difference.

And any fan is better than the stock ones in the HAF-X. When I switched from the stock side-panel fan to an Aerocool Shark (I'm sure there's better ones out there, I just like these, pretty decent price and they move a lot of air), GPU temps dropped 5-6C. While you're at it I would swap out the exhaust fan too, since you'll need to move a lot of hot air that these dump into the case.

I have 2 Asus GTX 680 DCII Tops running @ 1300 boost stable on air. I really wish they'd release a 4GB Lightning with voltage control. I'd ditch my DCII Tops for that.

I want to pass this info along:

http://www.ekwb.com/news/262/19/MSI-N680GTX-Lightning-to-get-FC-water-block/

New EK block is being made for the Lightning 680, should be epic performance. This EK style block worked great on my Asus DCii 680.

What are you guys using to stress test for 24/7 clocks?
I normally use Heaven, but I feel as some games can run higher clocks then what is Heaven stable.

I used to like GPU Tool but opening this program causes an instant red screen of death, it's a shame as I love that program.
