It is 1920 x 1080 for this thread, the official scores thread in the bench section uses same settings but 1680 x 1050 resolution which gives higher scores.

The DC2 is a great cooler, but it is not designed to scale with temps as well as the TF4 is (the TF4 again can do up to 4300rpm on the fans). Techpowerup has reviewed both cards and their findings (at auto fan settings, obviously)
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_680_Lightning/32.html
Here the DC2 is outperformed by the TF4, in the same testbed machine. Again, i'm not saying the DC2 is bad -- quite the opposite, however you keep insisting that it is superior to the TF4. That is simply not the case.

Im not sure why you feel the constant need to follow up behind every post that I make in regards to both coolers, you are entitled to your opinion and thats fine but im entitled to mine as well. The reason I mentioned it again is because of a previous comment which happened to have something to do with the GTX 580 lightning vs the DC2 version of the GTX 580. I stated that I owned both cards a while back "Which I did" and took notice that the DC2 GTX 580 cooled better and was quieter than the Lightning GTX 580.

You completely jumped the gun without even taking the time to see what I was talking about and assumed that it must be about the GTX 680 Lightning rolleyes.gif . But since you bring it up again im still waiting on a contender..........but have not had one come along yet. Also I still have yet to see anyone with a 680 lightning with temps of the high 40's after several hours of gaming which im consistently getting on my DC2 GTX 680 with a fan speed of a mere 40%. Its not as though the TF4 is a bad cooler, I dont mean that at all by any stretch of imagination but I do believe the DC2 will give better results over all.

You can keep talking all the scientific dribble you wish to talk, I will stick with the results which I have seen in this thread thus far. thumb.gif

Overclocked to
Core: 1313 Mhz
Mem: 7000 Mhz

Is that your score with the overclock? that is a bit low.

I'm just saying, I saw pretty good benchs on this thread by 680 owners and I'm wondering why you get so low results.
For example, I got a 670 PE and I can bench this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
325

No, It seems right to me !! You have a higher clock then me and a lower score.

Well I sent the dead card back to Newegg yesterday for replacement, and they're In Stock at the site so hopefully it won't take long. Maybe this all happened for a reason and I'll get some super silicon thumb.gif Fingers crossed.

Any Twitter info or anything from Unwinder? His vacation is in 2 days frown.gif

Apparently. No idea what happened. Just took the backplate and reactor off. Now it won't work with or without the Reactor chip. So, I don't know.

Hmm very strange, the card should work without the reactor chip...but why you took the backplate off ? The nice part is that you could get a better oc-able card smile.gif or possible a worst oc-able card than previous one... who knows, let us know.

Paying 470 euros (500 dollars more or less) and not being able to run those game in ultra is a joke isn't it ?
So, on bf3 and skyrim, i disabled AA, which is supposed to be heavy for the card ==> Still no change, 60 to 38 fps in riverwood (skyrim) or gulf of Oman (bf3).

I decided to sent it back, and now i'm looking for a new one a fastest and powerfull one => a 680 with a stable OC
My specs :
Amd Phenom x6 1090T 3,8Ghz
Asus crosshair formula IV
SSD crucial M4 128Go
16Go Ram Gskill
Waterblock Corsair H50
Cooler master HAF X (the case)
So Far i had an ATI HD 5970 but ATI's drivers made me sick so i changed for Nvidia... Was it a mistake with my specs ?
Sorry if my english sucks

CPU bottleneck.
