[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 272

post #2711 of 7827
At my place it looks that they still got the unlocked Lightnings / Czech Republic, EU / wink.gif
They do advertise that - it d be only logical me being able to snatch oneof the third or so batch of them a mere month or 5 weeks ago..

The turnover of such HW is here lower than in the U.S. biggrin.gif

Kind Regards as always!

To run a chip at high clocks/low voltage you either have to get lucky buying a great chip, keep buying & testing chips until you find a great chip, or get the temps down (depending on the chip, temps may have to go down a lot).

Hi, it is simple - I have tested around 8 of them and had luck- 1 German overclocker sold me this one thumb.gif I got it runnin actually at 1.376 to be on the safe side , but 1.368 was stable, albeit only on P8P67 DL-- Sabertooth needs more juice.

Same to you , elbubi, and thanks for the frienly environment here.
Better than on tthe German forums, really.

Personally I'm really mad with such decision.

I actually agree with nVidia here.

If you were victim of the fiasco where manufacturers shipping non reference 5xxs and the mV was off so crashed, you could get why nVidia is taking measures to even things across the board.

It's not nice for us who like to play and tinker, but it's a sound business move.

Fiasco?

For every agreement there's an equal and opposite disagreement? lol.

Those who care can keep 2.2.3 and older drivers then....can't they?

wait....
so you're tell us overclockers on an overclocking forum where the majority of us void our warranties and do crazy stuff with our hardware to agree that Nvidia is correct in locking us down? rolleyes.gif

blasphemy! tongue.gif
