post #4581 of 7827
Im glad when GK110 comes, i get sick and tired of manually changing volts in AB it keeps dropping down.

I dont even use the overclock function anymore
post #4582 of 7827
same here .i just run stock and im not worried about what my card can do anymore...it runs games and keeps cool..and looks sexy as all hell..be happy...if you payed 600 for your card reciently..im sorry ...cause the newer cards dont clock nearly as high as the older ones..but if you payed 500..it still clocks higher then any 500 dollar card..so be happy with what you got...and the voltage situation..go to lowes or home depot and buy a 20 dollar multimeter.

I feel the same way in regards to voltage control. I'm tired of doing everything manually. MSI AB guru Unwinder doesn't even own a 680 Lightning anymore.

omg what keeps causing this anyways!?

I noticed it after I moved my setup over to a new case - the settings are not saved, and every time I look, the +voltage I have added on afterburner is lower and lower. I have to manually keep resetting it to what I put originally. VERY annoying and honestly, this change is probably what is causing all the fluctuations in mhz..

So.

With all those "problems" I feel like is better the 7970 Lightning...is that?

I still love my 680L's as they will possibly be the last with software voltage the way things are going.

I honestly dont need to o/c them for any games that are currently out meaning I have +200 mhz headroom on both cores and +500 mhz on memory if and when I need it - this really isnt a bad thing at all.

Let me know when Crysis 3 comes out if you guys are all indifferent about double clicking on ab.exe and moving a couple sliders.

Unwinder was suppose to fix the voltage problem dropping after every reboot on AB 2.3.0.

Clearly he did not. I would like to know who is testing this software before release because obviously they don't know jack.
post #4588 of 7827
Unwinder has done an awesome job, MSI has the only unlocked card without some kind of mod, cables attached. There is no need to overclock these cards except for benchmarking. 310 drivers don't play nice with my cards during overclocking. Neither of my cards are spectacular cards but with water blocks and a rad in a bucket of ice I can get 1500+ 0n core and 1842 on mem in sli. I see nothing to complain about. I'm not done with these cards yet, I think they have more left in them

Exactly Geno, nice build you have, just checked your thread, very nice

Anyone with a 2560x1440 monitor.

How well does this card run on one? As a single card set up.

Thanks.
