I have a problem with my new msi gtx-680 lightning card.
It seems something i can't get my mind on to fix this, that is why i came here to ask help.

A few times a day the fans go spinning real hard, without reason.
Normal during surfing etc. the fan speed from videocard is about 1140 rpm, and gpu temperature is about 39 degrees celsius.

Then suddenly the fans spins up to 3350 rpm and then slows down back to 1140 rpm, while the temperature is not changing.

The cpu and videocard are both not overclocked.
I have tried several drivers, from nvidia site and msi site
I have bios version 80.04.47.00.41 in videocard

My system specs are:

PSU corsair 850 watts
CPU : i7 2600K
MOBO: Asus p8z68-v pro
Mem : 2x 4GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8

I have made a screenshot, red arrow is gpu temperature, and yellow arrow is fan rpm speed

Maybe someone knows what is going on with the card.

This should never happen. I haven't seen anything like this on my card. I think your card is defective and You should RMA it.

Could someone please post the two apropriate bioses that i can use please? It would realy be nice supplying the direct links to the files to :-)

Like i said i dont want to loose my waranty flashing something that isnt aprooved by msi or anything. Thanks in advance for the help guys.

no it wont void the warrenty..i use the 3a bios..i think its the best cause when you have a driver crash you dont have to hard reset you computer.just follow the directions on the first page of the post and you will be fine.i think its best just to flash the ln2 bios and keep the other one clean for just normal every day stuff..use the ln2 for benching and achieving high oc

Is the 680 lightning a good choice for 1440p? Just kind of wondering because I bought a new monitor and I plan to build soon, I also wanted to go Nvidia this time around. However, A bunch of people talk about vram limits with 1440p, so maybe the 3gb 7970 is better option? kind of unsure what to do.

im the long run i think of..will you have the card for the long run? if so nvidia will allways support there driver..amd not so much..if you update your cards every gen then go with what will work better..2vs3gb of ram at 1440p is the same..some games will use more then 2gb of vram..hitman uses over 2gb at that resolution and skyrim does with mods..who knows about next years games..you can buy a lightning 7970 and that card is a beast also..

Careful if you buy a 7000 series AMD card as some don't have DVI-D output, 7970 Lightning is one that doesn't, you may have yo buy an expensive active displayport to DVI-D adapter. Nvidia also has 4GB cards, so there are many choices that will work.

He didn't mean they don't have a DVI port at all, but that the DVI output it does have is not dual link. So it only supports up to 2048x1536 unless you buy an expensive adapter, because it's single link. That's why I didn't go with the 7970 Lightning, because I game at 1440p. The 680 Lightning has dual link DVI which supports higher resolutions up to 2560x1600.

This review explains it better than I can. Click me.
