[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 424

post #4231 of 7827
in some games i cannot run the cards overclocked much anyways..i allways run in sli so i dunno about single card. but really its not going to make a difference..maby 5fps give or take a few..but with one 680 you can play any game maxed out with very playable frames. even at 1008mhz refrence card speed. i would say yes its worth it now that they are 499. refrence cards 1008 vs 1202..mine boosted to 1228mhz but when i flashed it it went down to 1202. since i unlocked it with 100mv i can get an extra 100mhz.. stock card did 1350 give or take. now i can push it to about 1460 given i fix the problem of them running under load!!

I just got a brand new lightning it does 1320 core, 7000 mem rock solid. I'm pretty happy with that, especially since I got it for $450 http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=73224

If it could do 1400mhz that would be cool but I wouldnt run that for games anyways. ASIC is 79%. If you are considering it grizzly I would say its definitely worth getting a lightning, you will still get the OC numbers you are looking for.

PS: the 1320mhz is just the number im reading in gpu-z. if the default is 1202mhz, and ive OC'd by 122, that gives me 1324. So does it not boost clocks when in LN2 mode? The boost clock is bugged and only reads 1059. So I'm not sure if im actually getting a higher max clock under load.

He has HT disabled on the 3770k, needs to enable for better physics.

Leave afterburner or gpu-z (on the sensor tab) open on the desktop to see what the max clocks are while boosted under load. Good price for the lightning!

From what I've read, GPUz doesn't read the clocks correctly on the LN2 BIOS, so you would have to use the monitoring programs on Afterburner to get the correct readings.

Moved over to the Mpower board and RAM, installed Windows 8 onto a fresh Kingston SSD and gave my lightning a run in 3dmark 11 at my best stable OC so far.

Not trying to insult you, just inquiring to get a clear idea here, so don't take me questioning you the wrong way. wink.gif

I think systeminfo reads the jedec specs of the memory, it always says 1333 or 1600mhz no matter what the memory speed is.

What was the win7 physics score? Looks like physics takes a pretty good hit in win 8.

Are we sure that they are getting binned lower? Could the latest drivers have any effect on overclocks making the cards more unstable? Also of course the ones who got crappier binned cards will come on and complain while the ones who didn't usually wouldnt.

Ah benched at stock clocks, I was thinking 4.5Ghz like in your sig. Doesn't really look like much difference in physics then, I was looking at a 3960x physics score the other day that was really low in win8, might not have been win8's fault...
