Nice! I Did it come with the unlocked bios or are the stores selling out of the original stock?

I just took some voltage readings out of curiosity, posting my notes for those who do not have a DMM available:

Warning: the formatting is terrible, these were just notes to myself
==============================
= 680 Lightning DMM volt readouts: =
==============================
LN2 BIOS
idle stock: 0.993v
idle max volt (+93mv): 1088
load stock:
-heaven avg 1.255v max 1.257v
-3dm11 avg 1.256-57v max 1.260v

Note: first test in 3dmark11 always produced highest voltage spike (maybe good one to loop for stress testing? idk)

==============================================
==============================================
==============================================
~
BIOS1
idle stock:994mv
idle max volt (+93mv): 1089
load stock:
-heaven avg 1.215 max 1217
-3dm11 avg 1.215 max 1.220

=============================================
=============================================
=============================================
LN2 BIOS 24/7 OC
+37 offset = 24/7 max (preference) Period. this is 1.3v
idle 1.032v
3dmark11: max volts 1.302v, avg 1.28v
heaven: max 1.298v, avg 1.296v
STABLE +111/+500 @ +37mv GPU/ +0mv Mem &&&&&&&&&&&&
(Translation: 1313/7012 @ 1.3v)
-can push higher on mem but meh
COD: MW2 avg 1.233v max 1.247v
=======================
-It was really boring but my friend Mary Jane was here to help wink.gif

i flashed it to the F8 without any issues

with max 2.2.3 vcore im topping out at 1392/7012
havent messed with the aux or mem voltages so i may be able to squeeze out some more

Congrats on the better card thumb.gif I'm really hoping I get a similar one to yours so that I can SLI higher clocks. I'm still waiting on the replacement for the one I sent in that was failing WU's on stock clocks. Status is still "Processing". I hope they don't end up doing a bunch of tests and the card folds fine mad.gif That card couldn't overclock for crap, hoping they replace it.

Nice, wasn't sure about the new cards after that post on the bot. Looks like he was pretty rough on his cards though. biggrin.gif
I was just looking at the front page & realized my card came with a different bios, I don't see any mention of 80.04.28.00.3A, which was the original unlocked ln2 bios on the second one I got. The first was the 80.04.09.00.F8

What are you using for a display that you don't want the 2GB card?

Hi Michael.

Thanks for the update. Just wanted to point out that BIOS 80.04.28.00.3A and 80.04.09.00.3A in OP are the exact same one, in fact I think I never saw a "true" 09.00.3A BIOS around.

Kind Regards!
