Conclusion: RV02-E vertical mounting does negatively affect the cooling efficiency of the TF4 cooler!

really? cuz i have an ft03 (same orientation) and my lightning runs just fine.

You could give it a try, inverting your chassis. I know there were people who had done similar tests and they claimed not much of a difference. But in my case it's significant. 61C in heaven and 65C in Withcer 2 with ubersampling on.

BTW, I don't know what VRM cooling method that TF4 cooler uses, can anyone point it out?

There is an almost full card heatsink plate on the card which covers the VRM's as well as VRAM ... then the air is hits that plate after it cools the fins that dissipate the heat from the GPU

It's officially been decided. I am stepping down to a Zotac GTX 670 AMP Edition, that I ordered this morning for $427 shipped. Comes overclocked to 1176MHz, and 6600MHz Memory, with Lifetime Warranty. I don't plan upgrading until I get my 3 IPS 27" surround setup or similar, which I may get in two or so years, in time for GTX 880/HD9970. Right now, I am packing the Lightning, and saving $170. It's a great card, and I truly do hope MSI comes through, for the sake of its customers. Good luck everyone.

Anyone with a golden lightning that OC's to 1350+ absolutely stable and having buyers remorse, see me for selling, i'd probably buy it off ya!

I've been eyeing classified 680 OC results pretty intently and they don't seem amazing, so far i've seen (stable) 1260, 1275, 1300, 1333 out of 4 samples maximum overclocks. And the temps are higher too. Hopefully more data will come soon but it doesn't look that great for the classified unless you put it under water, of course the sample size is small so more results will be following I guess.
