Right, I find 2.2.3 a little more of a hassle for normal operation and I really don't need it for 1300Mhz SLI. I still have 2.2.3 on the machine if I feel the need to whip it out wink.gif

Right so 2.2.3 always lowers the voltage on my computer, is it actually lowering though??

I am thinking to install 2.2.2 again, my 1st card OC max is 1355mhz, my 2nd card is maxed out at 1317Mhz .
So in SLI i have them both running at the second cards max. Would i lose my stability at this speed if i change to 2.2.2

Also i am wondering, i hate the look of my GPU Reactor, i have a black and green them with my assassin board and black cables + green lighting.
Would i lose stability by removing both my GPU reactors?

My plan is to cover the holes on the backplate in which the blue LEDS shine though, and remove the GPU reactors.

Mine just got in today to replace my crappy clocking ASUS GTX680 DC2O..

Haven't taken pics of it yet so that'll come later.

First thing I did when it first booted was flick the switch and flash the unlocked F8 BIOS.
This resulted in artefacts all over and the BIOS was unusable. I flashed the newer unlocked 3A BIOS and that works fine. Did give me a scare with the level of artefacting it gave with the F8 BIOS... Got both of them from the OP here but..

Ehm yeah, with MSI AB 2.2.3 I got control of the voltage up to +93mV which gives 1.308v idle and a nice load voltage of 1.279-1.283v.

This is enough to run 1350Mhz core perfectly stable in Heaven, even with everything maxed incl Tesselation and AA, combined with 7200Mhz VRAM.

Temps get up to about 55-60c with a custom profile (fanspeed is around 50% at that temp) so I can handle more..

Simple question. Can I GET more? I want more voltage for gods sake...
VRM's and Core hardly ever reach 60c so I want mooooooooooooore.

What more can I do to get more voltage. Like the +300mV limit I read about in MSI AB.

I wanna see if I can get 1400Mhz 24/7 stable cause with this voltage 1375Mhz crashes within the minute in Heaven.

Havent tested 1350Mhz in long term gamign with BF3 yet which is VERY harsh on your overclocks so I will try that now.
Thundahcat.

I have a g1 also and the green led interfered with the blue theme from other led's.
I just unplugged the little plug on the northbridge on my g1.
If that works for you, then you don't have to go through the hassle of removing the reactors...

Thanks, but i want to stop the Blue from the graphics card from interfering with the green.
As my theme is green.

I'm thinking of picking up 2 or 3 of these cards pretty soon, but I'm curious if there's been any talk or rumor of the 4gb version? I kind of wanted to directly replace the 580 Lightning Xtreme 3gb cards I'm running now.

Also curious about this. Would consider picking this card up if it was 4gb.

Hey guys i just spent time replacing the stock thermal compound on GPU number 1 as its above number 2 getting its heat.

Look at the factory job on the thermal compound, terrible.

Thats cool just threw my two cent in.
Man that is a terrible job.
I wonder how come they throw so much tim on there.
Supposedly they know not to, but yet they do, I wonder if makes a diff with the tim they use. or is it only aftermarket one's that don't need so much.
I've seen the same basic amount on all my gfx cards i've replaced tim on.
3xgtx 285's.
let us know how the temps fare after the reapplication.
And what tim are you using.
Thanks.
