Awesome thread you have going on here.
I am a very proud yet dissapointed owner of 2 x GTX 680 lightnings. As I am only get very slight overclocks(compared to the usual around here)
Can someone please help me figure out what I am missing.
Both cards are on LN2 BIOS(Unlocked, downloaded from this forum)
Both cards overclock to +90mhz on the core and +450 on the mem. I used afterburner 2.2.4, and I have since gone back to 2.2.3.
Both cards do not read any more than 1.2v. And this is the problem. I am sure that they will clock alot further if i could just adjust the voltage a little.
When i rolled back to afterburner 2.2.4, i did not save previous settings. So i thought that maybe it would then give me voltage control.
Also I am running these cards on a R3E, did any of you have problems with the x58 board and these cards?
Any help will be much appreciated! Lets see what we can get out of these puppies!

You have to use a DMM to know what the voltage is. Software does not read any 600 series cards correctly.

Hey guys, I've just ordered this amazing card and wondering if my cpu will handle two of these. I'm running my 950 at 4.0ghz nowadays. Also one other question, is it ok to use one of my 6 to 8 pin power connectors for one of the 8 pin slots ?

Your cpu is enough to push two 680 Lightnings.

But I'd suggest to get your uncore up to around 3600-3866MHz to push the cards even more to thier full potential.

The 6 to 8 pin connector should do fine, I see no problems there.

@KUSTOMIZER

You have to unlock the voltages for both cards through afterburner. Also you need to add code to your .cfg for EACH card.

[Settings]
VDDC_Generic_Detection = 0
VDDC_CHL8318_Detection = 46h
VDDC_CHL8318_Type = 1


Once you do this you will be able to set core voltage to +93mv which should give you around 1.3v. ALSO, make sure to uncheck the synchronize setting in afterburner. Good luck!

Hey guys i added a bit more stealth to my Lightnings by painting the cover of the GPU reactor.

@bluntman.

Thanks a mill for the advice. Let me see if that helps......

Why disable synchronize settings? Does it cause issues with overclocking in SLi?

Congrats on the painting, it looks gooood. Did the re-tim lowered down your temps? Regards!
post #2999 of 7827
Thanks smile.gif

Yes re-tim did help, but it really only made a difference once i did both cards because the bottom cards temps were affecting the top card, not the result i expected but i lost 2-3 degrees each card.

also do you guys measure your overclocks based on where the core turbo speed goes or the actual core clock???
