I left the global profile the same so the cards still downclock on desktop.
Yes also Vertical synk to off and single display performance mode if you use only one monitor

Voltage is fine if temps are OK.
It is very easy to remove heat sink. The 4 screws around the GPU, the ones with the springs. No need to remove back plate to re-apply TIM.
Best thing you can do for your cards temps is use a good TIM. I recommend cleaning the GPU and Heatsink with alcohol or Arctic cleaner, I prefer Prolimatech PK-1 or PK-3, PK-1 is by far the easiest to use, and as good or better than any other TIM available. But any good TIM applied correctly will be better than factory applied.

After enough Far cry 3 and BF3.. i gonna sell my 680 Lightning for 400 euros smile.gif....
I m also pissed off about afterburner with that voltage bug and the 780 is arround the corner also...

Think its a good time to sell this card now.....
post #4644 of 7827
yes i was reading somewhere that after the next few gen cards come out..the dedicated gpu can boot up a computer and there will be no need for the cpu...but its the same on the cpu side...the integrated gpu will be alot more powerful and most people wouldnt need a dedicated for gaming..i guess only time will tell...i wish nvidia and intel teamed up and made some bad azz shizit and quit playing around and show us what they can really do.!!!! il pay the premium.

whehe, I would pay for that 1000 euro CPU.GPU combo wink.gif.
Would be nice. But thats not hwo this world works yet, unfortunately.

But I got the money for the 680 Lightning now, im SO glad I sold it and MSI afterburner, screw you with your annoying voltage bugs !!

Also, i think the 680 is kinda slow for what you pay for it!

I go wait for GK110, new rumors say its 50% faster than the 680, till than... ill stick to the 8800GTX and UT2004 lolz. Maybe in the meanwhile i buy 7950Crossfire and sell it 2 months later tongue.gif, also curious about AMD crossfire

Been benching some recently.
Can't get my memory clocked high enough or could improve my score's

Concerning issues with 310.70 I have personally made some headway. Last night I realized that while I was having issues with 310.70 I was using the LN2 bios. This led to me to switch back the the stock bios and then re install 310.70 drivers (I had reverted back to 306.97 previously to alleviate the issues I was having with 310.70). After doing this I found the issues I had been experiencing previously with 310.70 were no longer an issue (sporadic gpu clock and vcore levels as well screen flickering on my non gaming displays). **Keep in mind I have had a limited amount of time to confirm my success.**

The last thing I did was to use kgb to set the stock bios vcore to a max of 1.21250v. This nets me the same vcore as the unlocked LN2. For now I will be testing my 680 Lightning like this and see what happens.

FWIW my 680 is not a special clocker. It requires 1.36v to hit 1350mhz. The memory though does clock to 7GHz.

I'm noticing the odd GPU clock issues on 310.70 as well, running the LN2 BIOS, I'll be in game and all of the sudden the clock will drop for a brief second. It's really annoying. It didn't do that on 306.97 though....so I was going to role back. But are you saying you think it's not a driver issue? But a BIOS issue? @MightUnit?

Yes Indeed. IMHO it would be worth giving a shot if I was you.
