May be a stupid question but is the second card on its LN2 BIOS?

Testing the cards separately so it's on the LN2 bios. Just tried to re-install AB 2.2.3 and still nothing is unlocked. I'm at a loss, really strange.

Sorry If this has been stated but what's the "best" bios for these? I have one of the first cards out so I can almost bet I have the 1st revision.

Keep what I got or is there something a little better? I would like to ditch the total black screen system lockup on a display driver crash

You have the F8 bios, the 3A bios is pretty much the same but the driver can recover after crash.

So I just flashed my card to the 3A bios listed in the first post and now its showing the 300% power limit and higher default voltage. Both bios versions had the same number. Strange. So if you get what appears to be a bios that should be unlocked based on the bios number but isn't try flashing.

Anybody ever use TweakForce drivers?
post #3397 of 7827
Lots of the later joiners really ignore reading post #1...with questions like, my bios is locked, how to flash, etc.
And to use AB 224 you need to add strings in ur hardware profile to get +83 effective, so read post 1 for info.

And you really dont need hardmods to bypass the limits of +100 AB for voltage, but you just need to hack it, and thats not for people new with overclocking.
I ran my 680 Lightning on 1,5V + on air (+200 vcore AB 224). for 30 sec to check some things, works fine. Useless on air anyway.
Good to know there are really NO limits with the lightning if you know more about it.

Artficats is often just a limit of the core, and crashing with no reason often results in not enough volts.
+80 on air really is enough, tho.. thats 1,37V realtime.

Mine is maxed out at 1293mhz, bad chip even at low degrees it cant keep up.
Everything at 1250+ is good anyway, biggest limiting factor is the slow 256-bit memory controller on the 680.

Hey guys! I ve bought this amazing card several days ago, so i resulted in 1293|6800. No so fast as i wanted but nothing to do. What gives me setting power limit up to 300%. Does it help me to overclock more? Thanks!
post #3399 of 7827
Agree, that "F8-3A" difference and some other things are really very nicely covered on the 1st page, so, everybody is kindly requested to look up everything there before posting same questions over and over again...

BTW my card came originally with the 3A unlocked BIOS - its a good one, could run almost 1440 MHz
on air without the AFB hack. For the "real " life is 1205 -1300 MHz more than enough, believe me.

Switch the card over to the LN2 BIOS (switch to the right, and only when the computer is completely off), and flash to the 3A BIOS from the first post. People are getting the exact same 'BIOS version' as the unlocked ones, but theirs is still locked down. So people just have flash to the unlocked one if they notice less than a 300% Power %.


I still want to know why mine is showing ~100% at 1480/7200 @ 1.42v while other people have had less voltage yet almost double the power usage. Is it confirmed to be a 2.2.3 error?
