Well the odds are it's going to be worse, since this was my 1380mhz card doh.gif

But yeah with the Noctua on my newly-installed Rampage IV Extreme, there is literally no room for even the backplate on the card. It's that tight of a fit for a card in PCIe Slot 1. So I am in the process of exchanging the card and I ordered a H100 to replace the Noctua. So...new Lightning coming in, hoping for another 1350mhz+ one but we'll see.

Haha, nice, when i was reading your post i wanted to say to buy a H100 if the Noctua is huge, and then you said it yourself. tongue.gif Nice sync.

My H100 will arrive Tuesday tongue.gif

I'm extremely unlucky or i have a problem. My 680L with L2N bios can overclock only to 1250Mhz, any higher clock lead to hard crash with black screen frown.gif
With the normal bios i can't even past 1230Mhz :|
The temp is around 60°C, my room is at least at 33°C (it's hot here tongue.gif), i don't think the temperature is a problem.

I noticed only one strange thing, i don't know if it's normal: When i switched the bios to L2N i had to reinstall the nvidia drivers.

Do a clean OS install, to make sure, then try to get higher clocks.

And try 304.48 instead of 304.79

Is this 1250MHz with boost? Another thing is maybe you have a card with high memory clocking ability, like say 7000-7200Mhz? That would help make me happy as memory overclocks help alot with Kepler.

this is kind of my situation. i bought 2 lightnings. both core clocks are rather low for the 'lightning' name at 1275/1255. The card with a 1275 max boost will do a healthy 7100+ on the memory, so i'm pretty pleased with it overall. Unfortunately the card that only does 1255 on the core will also only do +280 on the memory...so i think that card is a dud... Thinking about returning it as i really only need one of these anyways

It's not that simple. My LAN PC I use for gaming has a 1090t in it overclocked to 4.1 GHz with a GTX 580 Lightning in it, and I have no issues achieving the proper framerates for that GPU.

Thanks for the quote. smile.gif
I just switched to i7-2600, and it gives me +50 on score with 54.4 FPS.
Is this still abnormal?
Should I try re-installing OS?

Actually thats right on the money thumb.gif What cpu did you have before?

"CPU Bottleneck"

Seriously ?
With a Phenom x6 1090T at 3,8Ghz ? It seems weird to me, but in that case, what should i do to fix it ? Oc my CPU ?
