This one seems to do fine on the stock volts, no crashing during folding or anything like that like the last one (unfortunately), so, no reason to RMA. Guess I'll have to take the hit selling it used if I decide to buy a proven performer.

Already sold mine. It's a real shame Nvidia has stuffed such a great card!! frown.gif. No point RMAing it anyway coz you would most likely get the same thing again.. The original batch lightnings were killer! frown.gif. Someone feel free to sell me one, I'll pay new cost price.. Lol

Ima lookin, but it's not gonna be successful.. frown.gif

The other week we got a chance to look at the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition which is the little brother to the GTX 680 Lightning we're looking at today, so it will be interesting to see how the two models compare against each other.

A very interesting and foreseeable info... the first batches are usually the best on CPU/GPU s - but with the GTX 680 I ve not seen it- I mean with the vanilla ones .. when it came out , I had rushed to buy one of the first batch in my country, but it had proven to be a measle OCer/ max 1215 MHz @ boost /.

SO I bought EVGA and it was even worse /max 1185MHz !!/ . that has been sold and I ve bought ZOTAC -that one was the best so far/1290MHz stable / But with the Lightnings it is the same story - they needed to bin the chips to be that good to stand up to the specs.
With the capped up voltage control now it is another story. Yes, "thanks " NVIDIA §§§

Hi Famich.

110 is the original unlocked "v80.04.09.00.F8", while 110a shares the same bios number but its internal coding is different (it sets 30% fan startup instead of 100%, I grab it from here, its the one I'm using right now), 111 is the "v80.04.28.00.3A" you are using now. I've achieved the exact same clocks with them, so at least in my case they have the same oc capablities.) 140 is "v80.04.47.00.19" which indeed has capped clocks/voltages.

I upload all 4 of them in case you want to fiddle whit it.

Edit: Attachment removed

Regards! smile.gif

Ps: thanks dph314 for uploading your new bios! If you ever switch the card to normal bios please save your original one and let me check if its a newer one also. Regards!

Guys, i'm getting mine next week as I got fed up by my ASUS DC2O's crappy OC ability (with a 1.212v BIOS it still hit just 1202Mhz max before crashing).

But ehm, how migh can I jack up the voltage with the standard cooler in a extremely well ventilated case?

Dun care about fan noise so 80-100% fanspeed is fine by me.. About +120-+150mV? Unlocked ofcourse?
