On a side note : I have been away again from here for some time and I can t believe what I am reading ..
there s constant whining on and off about Unwinder, GTX 680, GTX 680Lightnings etc etc.

Wake up and see - Lightning , as mentioned before, is the only unlocked GTX 680 without the EV Bots, wiremods etc.
Unwinder did a great job and got p...d off by some whiners here as I recall.

I got just one Lightning, it runs OK. I can understand that some people hoped for more, happened to most of us IMHO. But thats the "silicon lottery ", there is NO guarantee for obtaining a good chip in your card.

That's totally true, in fact I bought the Lightning just for Overclocking...run test and rise up some places in hwbot, but wasn't luck. I tested the GPU in air and only can do 1300 core clock in air.

I'm happy with the GPU, but if you don't want be disappointing, just go and look for the pro overclockers guy that sell the golden GPUs for twice the price.

okay so success! i downloaded the 2.2.3 afterburner and was able to get my OC to 1300mhz+ thumb.gif on the core, which was my target none of my previous cards could do this. It seems that the 2.2.3 has the ability to let the card run at higher volts than the new one so thats probably what did it. Can anyone recommend a good fan profile? I don't have one yet.

So.... randomly a bunch of random unrelated BSODs. Now every time my computer boots, the blue LEDs on the lightning flash a couple times and then a random number of them turn off completely after a random number of seconds - monitor displays "no signal".

It's trending towards less and less time before the screen goes black, sometimes before even reaching BIOS.

This a known issue of some sort or am I just boned?

Hi guys !

I have a problem with my GTX680 Lightning, I started a thread there : http://www.overclock.net/t/1340139/overclocking-problem-with-my-gtx680-lightning

Can somebody help me about this ?

I'm really lost, I tried everything but I think there is something strange as I also couldn't OC my GTX580.. So I'm not sure it's my 680 which is faulty..

Thanks in advance smile.gif

If you're willing to sell to canada (like litterally 5 hr away from the border) let me know

I really want to test the difference between full cover vs my current setup
