Please add me to the list!

I have a slight problem though, when I switch the bios into LN2, the gpu is not detected, afterburner says cannot detect Nvidia gpu????

Try 2.3.0 Version.

Btw where is UEFI GOP Bios LN2?

Happy new year guys. Long time no see. I have some questions and I would prefer knowledgeable people to help me(as in, I don't want to receive false information) sorry if rude. I bought 3dMark11 on steam for 5$ when it was on sale, and I did some benchmarking and I've now observed something strange. My physics score went down when the lightning was overclocked as opposed to when it was not. Also, my i5-3570k is at stock and I have anti-virus and internet running in the background so maybe one of these is the cause, if not then what gives? Also, in these benchmarks, what tests do the gpu and cpu do?Are some gpu only like 1,2,3,4, physics cpu only and then the combined test both? Finally, if I want to pass unto other forms of cooling for the gpu, what options do I have and do they require maintenance bc if they do, that ain't for me as I've never opened my computer to clean it yet since I've put it together:o. Here are some pictures and links for the tests.

Overclocked http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5458294?loginkey=XR28SXP9sbvzAHk-HGouMw

Two final questions. Is my graphics score (on air cooling) k bc i've seen people say that 12000 is beast for one gpu and I have no idea what is considered bad,average,good, awesome etc for 3dmark11. Finally, My GPU is on the x.16 pcie 3.0 right now, but I want to install my CPU cooler thats been sitting in a box for months and I think that I may have to move it to a x8 pcie 3.0 lane since the cooler is humongous (http://i44.tinypic.com/2en2dk0.jpg, i mean look at that monster); or I could remove the reactor from the GPU; anyway, I'm still scared it's going to bend my mobo (sigh, I knew I should of bought a closed loop for the cpu). Thanks.

Hey guys, i've been quiet for a while since upgrading to these lightnings, fixing the incorrect bios on one of them, and living with Afterburner 2.2.3 and the voltage drops everytime i restart the computer.
I see the version is now up to 2.3.0
I will take a stab and guess that i still cannnot overvolt my car with the latest version, and to keep with 2.2.3?

Hi guys, first time poster here.

Got a few questions. I will start with a huge problem I have with my setup - I bought the card along with the EK waterblock. The damn thing leaks on the contact with this flipping FC-LINK thingy. I have drained the loop, took it apart, resettled, filled about 20 times to no avail. I do have both seals in place and I thought I knew what I was doing ... can anyone comment on that. Had to ditch it for the time being and go straight in to the ports creating a piping abomination to get the downward facing port connect to a top mounted rad in my case. Does not look pretty.

Second thing is temps - what core temps do you guys get on water. Preliminary tests show @ 1.271V core @1346 it hits 74 deg with Furmark after 20 mins. Games about 10 deg less. A bit high I think for a WC? Idles nicely in upper 20's so I think the block seats OK on the core. Previously I had MD 5870 in this loop and it was hitting upper 50's tops.

The other thing is BIOS and voltages. To my surprise it came with the 3A BIOS for LN2. As I understand it 3A is what I what for get overvolt. The problem is with the voltage control cranked all the way up (+100mV) it hits 1.271. I am using Afterburner 2.3.0 with the edited config files to enable voltage control.

Question is - how do I go 1.30V and beyond ? I thought the 3A LN2 BIOS start as 1.31V or so.

Best Regards.

10268 for a GTX680 ??? .... i think is a bit low.

i got 10221 with an overclocked GTX670 ...

Compare the graphics score, not the total.

No modded bios.

You're measuring with a DMM? Because software isn't reliable. As long as you flashed to the 3A in the OP though, then yes, you can go as high as you want thumb.gif

I had to reinstall the drivers when switching to the other BIOS for the first time. Power down, switch to the LN2, reinstall drivers and you'll be good to go. Just run the installer, no need to do a clean install if it's the same driver.

Thanks.

Yes, that's how the tests stress the hardware. I'd close the internet and anti-virus before running it. And if you don't want to do a whole loop yourself, you could always do 'The Mod'- http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod Or try this one- http://www.overclock.net/t/1201657/arctic-cooling-accelero-hybrid-air-water-gpu-cooler not sure about performance though, don't know how much of an improvement it would be over the Lightning's stock cooler.

Also, no, a x8 3.0 slot should not make a difference on performance at all. And for what it's worth, I went from a NH=D14 to my H100 because of the size of it and having SLI and have been very satisfied smile.gif

If switching to 2.3.0, all you have to do is edit the config file, and you'll have voltage control like 2.2.3. I'll search for the lines to paste in the config file and put them here in a sec.

The reading in Afterburner isn't accurate, assuming that's what you're going off of. It may have come with the 3A BIOS, but it could still be locked. People have gotten BIOSs as of late with the exact same label as the 3A, but it's locked down. The only way to be sure is to flash to the 3A from the OP

hey guys

is there some point in using AB 2.3.0 over 2.2.3 ? I mean 2.2.3 can do voltage changes right away and AB 2.3.0 can do it AFTER editing config file right ? I wil be trying my new lightning baby in next days and I would like to use "use setting on startup" for my final OC.

thank you for answers
