It's not touching, but it would be if the backplate was on. Plus before I put the top Lightning in i put electrical tape around the fan clips of the Noctua. So, I don't know. I'm frustrated/sad/pissed frown.gif That was the card that did 1380mhz in 3dMark11 too mad.gif

It's running much slower even at stock speeds, and it's reaching nearly 70c? I'd say something is wrong...

i guess all im saying is that there are so many variables to consider in terms of low scores and/or elevated temps that it doesnt necessarily have to be a bad card

I used to get 56fps+ in Heaven maxed before my card died aaskull.gifsad-smiley-002.gif

As if the RIVE+3930k weren't enough, I just ordered a H100. Shame too, because this Noctua was damn awesome while it lasted. But I'm determined to SLI these Lightnings and I do not want to have to do anything with one again as far as removing the Reactor/backplate. I have no idea what happened but the H100 should solve my problem.

Any other members of this thread have nightmares about their credit card killing them for using it so often? rolleyessmileyanim.gif

Are these results for stock or overclocked?

Looking at the link shows HT is disabled, enable for better physics/combined score, should bring up the overall a little bit.

I saw something interesting about Crossfire of 2 Msi 7870 Hawk.
What would be the perf of a such thing ? Better than the 680 lightening as for you ?

to me its analogous to investing in two gtx560 instead of a gtx580, for example
