post #3611 of 7827
Just my thought on a card with big fans, you need Antec 1200 or something like that, to get 20 degrees lower or something compared to real bad cases, That case is not ment for open air coolers, to max it out.

if you get on 70% 60 degrees than its something bad... not on auto/ thats what I read in ur post 70% on 60 degrees.

To get MAX clock speeds potential you need MAX airflow as wel.
I dont know about average cooling but for me thats like wayyyyy too low, I need the best airflow in my case there is.


And anything 1200+ isnt noticeable anyway. And the REFERENCE GTX 680's makes annoying noise and some wont even past 1060mhz!!!! even a lot. SO the Lightning worth every piece of money anywayz.
So maney people complain about reference 680's lots clock just over 50mhz or so...

And I would run 24/7 on my 1,37V .. because why the heck not? If it brakes I RMA it. And never had any issues with my 580 Lightning too. That ran +200, non stop

BAM! +1000
+0 on voltage wink.gif.

But needs about 44 degrees to keep stable,

And 8200mhz, yeah artifacts in 3 sec biggrin.gif.. but still works, lmao..

I understand that these cards need to keep cool to really show their potential, and I understand you don't want to have a sub-standard cooling case in that regard, but my GPU temperatures never go over 60 degrees. How would that be seen as an issue? My fan profile is pretty generous, so when my GPU temperatures get around 60 degrees, I have my GPU fans bump up to 70%. That fan speed maintains my GPU temperatures at 60 degrees, and it NEVER goes higher than that. Wouldn't that be seen as a good thing?

As a matter of fact, I just removed the side panel on the case that has the sound-dampening material, added another corsair 120mm high performance fan, and my GPU temperatures went down 10 degrees! My temps now stabilize around 50 degrees.

Thank you Bern and DPH. Just ordered the lightning today, now I'm looking for a good universal water block. Right now I have the Raystorm picked out, any recommendations over that?
