[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 456

post #4551 of 7827
I had similar issues with my quad sli 680 classifieds on the last 2 BETA's (though the 310.70) betas seem solid for me... HORRIBLE gpu usage in BF3 and MOH but no more of the low 3d clocks...

I have a buddy with quad sli 670's who had the same issue ...

This all seems to come down to some nasty driver stuff...

Good luck, maybe try a clean install?

I've already tried manually uninstalling the drivers according to the guide found here as well as installing windows 7 on a fresh partition. Same issue. Like I explained before, 1 of my cards running alone does not down clock at all with the newest drivers but my other card does down clock at random when running alone. I was thinking that the card that's down clocking with the latest drivers might be defective but then if I install the last official drivers (306.97), I get NO down clocking at all. If the card was defective, wouldn't it ALWAYS down clock no matter the driver?

Exactly - I don't think our cards are defective, as much as the newer drivers have done something to them. We will see what happens - I have opened up a topic on the MSI website.

I'm messing with my 1 680 Lightning that down clocks when running the newest driver. I switched back to stock Lightning BIOS, uninstalled the drivers, rebooted, reinstalled the drivers, rebooted and then ran heaven benchmark. No more down clocking.... I'm going to do the exact process after I switch back to the LN2 BIOS.

So you don't have ANY down clocking in Heaven with the latest official drivers with your SLI setup?

Card still down clocked. I'm going to sell 1 of my cards on Friday and I plan on returning my newest Lightning after Christmas. These issues along, lack of strong SLI support in a lot of games I play and the BS Nvidia and MSI has put us through in regards to voltage control has turned me off on this card. The GTX 780 is only a few months away...

Understood - definitely a pain. While I do feel that what Nvidia and MSI has put us through is bull, I still find that overall, SLI is much more stable than Xfire. Either way, I honestly don't think the voltage restrictions will change on upcoming Nvidia cards AT ALL. I mean, they are still selling a ton of cards, moreso than AMD atm I think - so there is no reason for them to go back on the voltage locks unless the community as a whole speaks up with their wallets and stops buying their products.
