[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 435

post #4341 of 7827
Not sure *** Nvidia is doing but I just installed the latest drivers (310.70) straight from their website and I'm getting massive down clocking in games with my 2 680 Lightnings. MIght have to return my newest Lightning just so I won't have to bother with this crap.

So...convince me to trade my 7970 Lightning for a 680 Lightning....

MY biggest issue right now is that I run a 2560x1440 monitor, so that worries me with the limited memory bandwidth

Any input guys?

Convince you... with PHYSX!
I haven't seen issues with my 680 lightning on the catleap but I'm not a gamer. I'd consider the trade though.

Ok so i have not modded afterburner to unlock even more voltage but, this card cant do 1300mhz even with +100mv and +300 on the power limit, i crash like 20 seconds into heaven on stock heaven settings. Is it common to require more than +100mv to reach a stable 1300mhz ?

Been lurking this thread a while and you guys seem to know these cards well. Any guidance would be much appreciated.


EDIT: Using the f8 LN2 bios.

I've had massive downclocking since the last few betas. Far cry 3 sucks in sli for me. I've tried all the fixes. What actually did fix it for me was to turn off sli. Starting to think the extra $600 for sli gtx680 wasn't even worth it.

Probably only worth it on multiple displays. Or High res panels.

I do with LN2 BIOS, at +300 and voltage slider all way up to 100mv ( which when i click apply, goes down to 93mv??) am able to hit 1345 on my core, using 2.2.3 and zero voltage hacks. And i force my fan to 65% which isnt too loud:). Which BIOS are you on? i got my card last week and everyday i itch to overclock it but going to try and keep it in till My Lighting goes under water. So to some it up, i changed my BIOS from the Latest one MSI ships with to the Unlocked 3A and it works! Still scratching my head with those of you who get over 1400 on core by just adjusting the mv slider and no voltage hack?? Do tell!
i recommend you flash to the A3 unlocked bios. Oh and i'm using the nvdia 306.xx. not the BETA release

how do you get your volts to run @1.31v? i see mine going to just below 1.3 but never 1.3 with my slider all the way up. Using 2.2.3 and zero volt mod.
