[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 455

post #4541 of 7827
I use my card on 1320/7000 for 24/7...so that is not the problem...The odd thing is that I see the drop in some games like Battlefield 3, but others like Batman Arkham City, Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2 are fine

The FSP are dropping and the GPU load is droping (less then 100%) and the game is becoming unplayable ? The graphic is getting too slow, because the GPU can work faster, but it doesn't working faster. And there is no clear reason for that ! The temperatures are normal, no artifacts on the screen, no trottling etc....

I experience this kind of behavior from my Lightning in almost every game, but my CPU is slower than yours - Q9550. That is why i belive the reason is in my CPU - it is slow and can not feed the GPU with data, so the GPU is taking short rests smile.gif
Another explanation: the reason could be in that specific game, games are programs and if they are not written well - they do not perform well ! Of course some kind of a driver could also be guilty for such behavior - not only graphical drivers; for example - chipset driver (VGA->PCI-E->CPU->RAM), sound driver etc.

Hey guys - I am hoping someone can help me out with a problem I am having with my 680 lightnings in SLI..

Basically, when playing just about any game, (BF3, FC3, even WoW) the core clock on both cards fluctuates like crazy - along with temps.

I have MSI afterburner going with a simple +100 on the cores (no over voltage) both under water - don't exceed 45C.

I have the on screen display and the core mhz on the cards keeps going from 1293 to under 900, back up to 1200 and down - and keeps doing this whether I am in graphics intensive scenes or not. The temps are also CONSTANTLY fluctuating around 39-45C... constantly moving up and down its really weird. Looking at the actual graphs, it looks like a heartbeat monitor - just without the consistency of one.

I currently have MSI 2.2.3, but the same thing happens with 2.3.0 as well. I have cleaned and reinstalled drivers (multiple ones from beta to current to past ones). Only thing I haven't done is reinstalled W7, though I don't know that going that route is going to change anything. I have tested both cards by themselves and they work great without any problems - I can actually OC them to around 1390 individually with some voltage added full stable, but when in SLI, nothing I have done seems to stop this constant fluctuation and no matter how much voltage I give them, I cannot get past a simple +100 on the core (to like 1293). This fluctuation is what I think is causing alot of the recent crashes I have experienced in game - where as I had none before.

The only thing I have done differently is that I recently switched to a Silverstone Raven 02 case. Any ideas?

Below are my specs:

2500k @ 4.5
Maximus V Formula
8gb Corsair @ 1866mhz
SeaSonic X 850w psu

I'm having a similar issue with my 2 680 Lightnings. I have no issues with 306.97 but if I run the last couple of beta's as well as the newest official driver, I get random downlocking even with a small OC of 35Mhz. Weird thing is, one of my cards do not down clock at all running the latest beta's and official driver if I have it installed by itself. When I install my other card and run it by itself, I get a little bit of down clocking with the latest beta's and official drivers. Again, no problems when I have 306.97 installed. Last of all, if I have both cards installed along with the 310.70, they both start to down clock like crazy!

I think this is an issue with scaling ?

I can confirm that the current the official released drivers are downclocking during gameplay. Not a nice experience when you deep in the battlefield:) . Sucks! i have tried changed setting in nvidia control panel to maximum performance with regards to some power option and that has made . . . . ZERO difference. Whats strange is that it downclocks to below 1200mhz core and i'm on the LN2 BIOS. i think i saw 900 at a time

I would check the TIM. How is your airflow as well ?

I'm glad that I am not the only one experiencing this issue, though at the same time, it sucks its happening to you and others.

Anyone have any idea whats going on here? If this was an issue with all 680's, there would definitely be some sort of outcry toward Nvidia - so it sounds like an isolated issue @ 680 lightning's. Think maybe we should post this on their forums?

I am not experiencing this, seems SLI users are.
