3A is much better, if only for the not having to do a hard reset every crash. But also because F8 has reportedly had many issues.


So, just out of curiosity...I don't like to think about it too often, because my credit card grows legs and runs away every time I do, but the day of the 780 is swiftly approaching. Just out of curiosity...what do most people plan on doing? And those with great overclocks on theirs especially. Still plan on going after the 780 right away or are you going to hold onto the Lightnings for a bit?

depending on the performance gain..and games coming out..if i need more then 2gb of vram for 1080p on new games then yes..if not i may hold on to mine..i allready get over 100-150 fps on all games maxed out

I can game stable as a rock at 1400 SLI while keeping temps in check, I cant see a 780 with no voltage unlock making me sell up. Esp when its not going to be, for instance a 50% performance jump from one 680 to a 780.

I don't game at 1440p so memory bandwidth wouldn't be a deciding factor on the new gen either.

Seems like overclocking is coming to a bit of an end with the potential for NV voltage lock + BGA cpu/motherboards. So between awesome clocking 680's and a crazy clocking 3960x I think ill sit pretty for a couple years for consoles to catch up to current GPU power.

bah more runs testing new drivers and such....

was the best i could get with the new beta drivers.... need to take comp outside for some cold runs biggrin.gif

Same here, I game now Far Cry 3 on air at 1350 at 1,29 V , but I have already ordered the same AQ WC blok you got wink.gif
If I could run 1400 on water stable, I will not upgrade, especially if the 780 will be locked out.

I can't afford to be upgrading right away. I'll definitely be hanging onto my 680 Lightning. Also since I've invested in the water block and the custom loop, even more reason for me to hang onto it. What I probably would wanna do is eventually get a second Lightning, I'm even thinking about going ahead and getting the block now that way I don't have any trouble finding one in the future when they become scarce. Maybe you can sell me one of yours when you upgrade. wink.gif

Yeah I'm the same way, may stay at 1080p for a bit. Only game I ever really saw Afterburner say I maxed VRAM usage was Crysis 2 with MalDoHD4 mod (looks amazing by the way thumb.gif)

I don't know what Nvidia plans on doing, but yeah I'm going to keep mine for a while too I think. Wait and see how the 700-series plays out, what the non-reference cards have as far as voltage control, etc. But BGA is only affecting OEM's and factory-built. LGA will still be available to the enthusiast-level.

Not bad at all. Once you get a chance you should fill out the RigBuilder thumb.gif Also, what voltage/clocks were you at for that run?

Far Cry 3 is insane! It's beating up my 3930k even at 4.6Ghz. Anything less and my Lightning's get bottlenecked. I can get full-usage on them at 4.6Ghz though, and only need stock boost speed of 1215mhz for 105fps min's. But yeah, that game is beautiful and runs great but definitely demanding as hell. Good to see Ubisoft taking advantage of our i7's and 680's thumb.gif

I can't either, that's why I'm hoping I have the will-power, and people help convince me, to stick with my Lightnings, ha. It would be much cheaper to set up a loop for mine than to drop +$1,000 on a pair of 780's, so I just need to be strong and resist. If I can't, I'll definitely ask you if you're interested. One is amazing, I'd love to see it on water so I'll let you know if I cave wink.gif

@ dph I'm running at 1.31v, +195 core (1398), and +500 mem (7000)

When its dry and cold enough I'ma go do an artmoney run outside and see where that gets me
