I have not maxed out vGPU on the first one. it runs 1hour+ through heaven @ 1.402MHz. with 1.281.

The newer one which i had to flash with the 80.04.28.00.3A unlocked LN2 Bios seems to max out @1.372 MHz 1.281.

For vGPU 1.281 i have to set offset +93 - it won't let me go higher.

So newer unlocked bios has smaller vGPU headroom? 1.372GHz is still a great overclock for the Lightning 680 yes? No?

That's definitely an above average OC.

I didn't plan on overclocking my card yet but I'm thinking about flashing and seeing what I can get out of it.
post #3036 of 7827
Yeah just flash LN2 unlocked Bios .. when you got artifacts you may switch back to normal boot with that ...

Switch back to LN2 when your system is running and re-flash your previously backed up LN2 Bios or another one.

Due to the switch and the dual bios its no big deal at all.

Nobody else can get higher than +93, that's all there is unless you do the Art Money hack on AB 2.2.3

Wont let me go higher than 1.281with Bios 80.04.28.00.3A wink.gif

On the locked LN2 Bios its way less though +93 has been applied.

With Bios 80.04.09.00.F8 on the older one i may get higher vGPU ... so it depends on the Bios.

Unfortunately 80.04.09.00.F8 won't work with the one i bought recently.

hey guys, just got my lightning couple days ago, just to check in if my card is behaving normally, during a 3dmark11 run my boost clock absolutely will not go past 1176 with no clock modification, from my understanding of the boost clock, the gpu will usually boost itself past the rated speed depending on temperature and power usage, my temperature does not go past 55c during the run, just wondering if that is normal for a lightning? Also when I start overclocking on the locked LN2 bios the TDP goes up to 108%. So far with the locked bios and +93mv on the core, I managed to get core up to 1311 bf3 and 3dmark11 stable, not the greatest clocking lightning but hell of a lot better than my old 7970 tongue.gif.
Other than that the card is freaking amazing. Any info about the first two issues would be appreciated smile.gif

why would you want to get a subpar block from a lying cheating company like EK?

There is a block available already for the lightning......Aquacomputers specifically made one after I asked them to and generated enough interest. You can grab them from sidewinderscomputers
