[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 488

post #4871 of 7827
Hi

I have tried searching this thread but its rather massive and difficult to get the result I want.

Has anyone else gone from a 580 GTX Lightning 1.5GB to a 680 Lightning 2GB and noticed any difference in performance?

I've been trying to find comparisons and reviews for this but havent dug up anything yet.

I'm not sure if this helps but a work colleague recently went from his MSI 580 Lightning to a GTX 670. He has overclocked the 670 to 1137MHz Boost. He seems to be very happy and enjoying the performance over the 580 he had. He also did OC the 580 quite a bit with the LN2 BIOS. His CPU is a 2500k.

I may just raise up to 1.089V & I don't have the Power limiter slider; I tried with 2.2.3 and that's the same...
I checked my bios backup with the one you provided and there are difference...
Any help, please?

Ok, I found the problem with Poweer Limiter slider, it was an old skin...
Now, why I can't get over 133%? It seems that I'm still locked...

yes i have just upgraded 580 lightning for the 680 lightning and yes there is about a 10 to 20 fps increase in performance and the new twin frozer cooler 5 is less noisy nand the new gpu seems cooler as well also the memery overclocks very well , also pcb back plate was a great feature

If modding 2.3 don't work just use AB 2.2.3.

Thanks, I found the problem...
My stock bios was 3A, but it was locked! I flashed the one in first page and it worked!
Now, wich one is the latest unlocked non-LN2?
Thank you!

Think this is the unlocked non-LN2 BIOS your looking for. If it isn't (pretty sure it is though) then there is another one with the same version (80.04.09.00.F7) in the database to try. Hope that helps. smile.gif

on afterburner 2.3.0 i could only get +60 on the core i mmessed about for days and al i needed to do was use v 2.2.3 thank good i can change volt

i will see what my card can fully do tomoro
