Are you using Bios 2?

Of course. 200% power, plenty of power, 301.48 driver, sweeped old ones. Perfectly stable at 1270, blackscreens in 3dmark11 any higher

I bought about 12 video cards from this store, NEVER got a good clocker hmm. [edit] scratch that I got a 470 off them that did 900 core wc'd in my buddy's rig[/edit]

I purchased this one for a client build so no big deal but still... talk about bad luck

Unwinder will be leaving for vacation tomorrow. Im a little disappointed in Msi. Can't believe no one from Msi has had anything to say at all.


They responded to my letter with this:

Dear customer,

If you need refund or return, then please contact reseller where you purchase it from. Thanks!

So, basically their answer was "ohh well".

Most MSI email reps barely speak english, they probably didn't even understand what you wrote lol. Anyway yeah the whole situation sucks. I think I can live with it since I have golden chips and the alternative costs 660$+660$ + 100$ so thats 220$ more than what I paid....

Ohh, dont get me wrong the card is more than enough. But I didn't pay an extra $100 over the other 680's for same performance. And you've seen my benchmarks with baseline 1202 vs 1350 MHz. They are not that big in fps..about, 3-10fps depending on games. At least not worth extra $100 over to me when most 680's reach mid to high 1200 easily. I've made my point why I am returning the card, and it has everythingto do with MSI and their falsified advertisementof the 680 Lightning.

One thing is for sure. They lost one customer for sure.

Now that last line of reasoning makes little sense to me, you went seeking overclockable cards but now you don't care about 10 more fps-thats how overclocking is on any card, you pay a premium for slightly higher framerates via overclocking. If 10 fps doesn't matter, why would overclocking and overvoltage matter? Yeah I get the entire principle thing, but why would you even seek out an overclockable card in the first place? I'm not flaming you, just genuinely curious - don't take this the wrong way. If 10 frames didn't matter to me I would own something crappy like a 7870 and be done with it, I wouldn't bother with SLI and I wouldn't bother with overclocking.

I'll summarize why I went the lightning route:

1) Lower noise with a proper fan profile
2) No kepler throttle (no other 680 has this feature)
3) Steady clocks (offset boosts are different on every other brand, again no other brand has this. +100 offset is 1302mhz on every lightning no matter what. Other brands : every card has a different speed with +100 offset. 1 DC2 might be 1275 with +100, another might be 1250 with +100)
4) Slightly higher framerates
5) Better than average overclocks

Anyway , I am more than happy. Looking at the EVGA forum it appears that the 680 classified isn't getting amazing overclocks, the last post I saw showed OCs ranging from 1260-1300 which certainly isn't game changing so I think I can rest easy with things as they are. I am not absolving MSI of what has seemingly been done - they are in the wrong for advertising something that isn't ready, but i'm pretty satisfied nonetheless.

Did MSI every officially promise voltage control? I don't remember that. Anyway, it goes back to what I've been saying about Kepler all along. Nvidia obviously locked down voltage for a reason and it may be more complicated to offer it than people realize. Still glad I stuck with my 7970's (though even without voltage control your 3dmark11 scores stomp mine into the pavement)....
