Soooo. I guess my card is throttling since I have reached a max temp of 85C in 3DMark11, I have notice that I wont go any higher than 1398Mhz, it passes the test but cant pass 1398 mHz with +205 Mhz offset in AB. im currently doing 1.33V.

Do you thing benching outside in the backyard with cold weather will give me better results or isnt recommended? I did last year with my GTX 580 and temp dropped 20C.

Lower temp by that amount will most definitely result in a better overclock. Just make sure it doesn't rain wink.gif

Card should not throttle on the LN2 BIOS. Do you have the 3A one from the OP? And is the core clock actually going down, or do you just mean that regardless of what you set the core offset to in Afterburner it won't go past 1398mhz? Could be the Power Target. Do you have that set to 300%?

Yesss.... do that. smile.gif set the rad outside. It is the cheapest way to have very low temps at high clocks and push up any benchmark scores. wink.gif

I think , you are right. At the Time of 480 or 580 Lightnings, there was built in selectetd GPU´s. At the GTX680 lightnings i am not so safe. I want to help some LTG users to overclock their Cards, but i had so many read about very bad Lightnings. This can never be a selected chip! One user couldn´t his card overclock at 1280Mhz without push the Core Voltage to min. 40mv (@LN 2 mode) No chance. He send his Card back to the Distributor. Perhaps we should wait a little Time... perhaps there is only a very bad charge of Chips underway...who know it... rolleyes.gif

Thank you for the response. Yes power target is 300% my LN2 BIOS is 80.04.09.00.f8, What is what makes your video card crash? not enough voltage, high temperature or both, I managed to reach 1411 Mhz and almost passed 3DMak11, crashed just before finishing the last test i was using 1.34V. but im thinking if high temp would make my card crash? i really want to try 1.41V, I know theres room for more juice in my puppy but not with those temps.

Also I don't know if anyone else, when the card crashes has to reboot, mine crashes and the monitor goes black, then I have to reset my system. it doesn't go back to the desktop, is this normal or just me?

Mine is on stock air, I think 1400 MHz isnt bad for just air, fans at max speed, it feels like is about to take off.

You'll definitely have better luck with the 3A BIOS from the first post of this thread. On top of having reportedly less problems from users, it doesn't require you to restart the computer every crash thumb.gif Try that BIOS and you might alleviate your problem. And temps make your overclock unstable, in a way. Having an overclock at 70C crash, might not crash at 60C. And low voltage as well, raising it will help. If you have room, flash to the 3A and try 1.36v (+93mv), assuming temps aren't in the 80C's already.

Anyone else get this problem? After a restart, performance is back to normal.
What is this? sleepysmiley03.gif

First thought: "memory leak" - ram not being released after being allocated?

thanks I think im gonna benchmark outside and see how far can I go with this BIOS at least my temps will drop and hopefully click higher. then rry the other BIOS.

Can anyone tell me the command using nvflash to flash my 2nd 680 Lightning in SLI? I don't want to uninstall my first 680 Lightning just to be able to do so. TY in advance.
