You have your cards in the wrong slot. You want to use x16/x16 in that motherboard and you're not putting your cards in the proper slots for that if I recall correctly. Don't you have to use slots 1 and 3?

Comparing both cards in "auto fan" is nonsense since the DCII fan default profile is stupidly low and it will let the card burn while overclocked. If you put both cards with the fans spinning at the same RPM DCII outperforms TFIII by a good margin while still being quieter. It's for a reason that it uses 3 Slots. In my experience the lightning had more headroom for OC but air wasn't enough to keep ~1000Mhz for gaming, the DCII had avaliable full cover WBs back then already reducing the slots needed to 2... both great cards. I had the DCII and switched to the Lightning hoping for higher gaming overclock and got a hotter noisier card that had potential but air wasn't enought to keep the max OC. Right now with Kepler being so "green" the lightning can keep the max OC as it seens and make the 680 shine, but I think the TF4 with it's sexy looks and neat fan cleaning feature still won't outperform the massive DC II design in terms of temps/noise. But MSI's card engeneering is better IMO.

Continually talking smack about how the DC2 is superior to TF4 is borderline thread crapping, this is a lightning owners club, not a DC2 owners club. While on that topic, the difference between the DC2 580 and lightning 580 is that the TF4 went through a re-design, and the 680 has signifigatly better fan speeds with the TF4. The TF4 has the potential to spin at higher rpms, which wasn't the case with the TF3. Before anyone sees fit to argue, please save it, this is a lightning thread, enough with the thraed crapping about how great the DC2 is. I don't go to the EVGA forum to talk smack about how much I hate the FTW. Or how much better the lightning is than the FTW. That crap is ridiculous. Like I said anyone talking up the DC2 in this thread, why not just make a DC2 owners club thread or something......I don't see the point of trolling in this thread talking about how great the DC2 is and so much better than the MSI cooler....make your own thread...

You wanted comparisons, techreport reviewed both in the same system while the DC2 performed worse. And a card that lets the chip burn while on auto fan? Interesting, thats a sure sign of idiocy in the design phase. Most people do use auto fan. Again, enough with the trolling and thread crapping about how much people love their DC2s. Go elsewhere in your own owners club thread.

Have you disabled Ubber Slamping on TW2 ?
If your issue is still there, As for me it's a driver problem but certainly not a CPU bottleneck. Which driver version have you ?

haha bro i shifted that was my old pic...the gpu reactor bends the ram slightly but i guess its ok.....anyways i offed uber sampling and am getting 80+fps....anyways its was my stupidity.....i saw msi afterburner gpu power and thought that was it....until finally i scrolled down and saw gpu load....thats on 100%
post #405 of 7827
so using after burner....what should i do?? i saw memory clock but do not understand it.....its only 1000mhz how do u guys get 7000+???
post #406 of 7827
They get 1300 - 1400Mhz in memory clock if i'm not saying stupid things.
7K + is for another thing

Soo much hate in your heart rolleyes.gif thanks for the welcoming answer, also I was not talking to you. If you think an owner's thread is only to praise a product, for "members only" to post, you're very wrong (and don't get me wrong IMO the Lightning 680 is overall better then the DCII 680 by many reasons). Many brands have someone on their staff watching those kind of threads searching for feedback and sometimes an honest complain or comparison can enlight newer product iterations. The Asus card is just fine in auto fan as long as you don't overclock. If you do overclock, chances are you're getting a custon fan curve anyway. Also I was not talking to you, and you can't avoid me to answer back by saying "Before anyone sees fit to argue, please save it, this is a lightning thread, enough with the thraed crapping about how great the DC2 is" and being rude. I was reinforcing the guy's argument and giving my perspective on the subject (which you could've just ignored). Also spinning even faster will only worsen the noise profile on the lightning... But nevermind... I'm out on this matter, still waiting for this damn 2.2.3 Afterburn and hoping you guys can go past 1400Mhz!

Wish you luck on that frown.gif

Thanks redface.gif I hope the new one is competent enough to take the place of his fallen brother.

So wait, now the Reactor is going to get in the way of my RAM once I swap the Noctua for the H100? I'm getting rid of this board if that's the case, there's gotta be a 2011 board that can fit a Lightning in the top slot. I'm not home now so I can't look, I don't remember where the Reactor was sitting in relation to the DIMM slots. Going to look back through the thread for some pics now while I'm at work though.
Edit- Been thinking of possibly getting something like this board-
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157285 ASRock X79 Extreme9. Check out the first PCIe slot relative to the DIMM slots....

Dph, I had two 7970 Lightnings with the GPU reactors installed in my RIVE and they fit just fine. Not 100% sure the 680 places the reactor in the same spot but I'd imagine it's very close so there shouldn't be any worries...

Looks similar. The guy on the last page said it was hitting his RAM. But I didn't see what kind of RAM he had, so, I'm sure my Samsung 30nm shouldn't be a problem. No heatsink on them.
