And I hope to see everyone in the 780 Lightning thread. Well, if the voltage is unlocked again. Hack, edit, whatever. As long as I don't have to take a soldering iron to my $600+ GPU then I'm in thumb.gif

Sorry dph had to fix that for you bud thumb.gif

biggrin.gif True.

We were all new at some point though I guess. Searching for the answer in a thread this size might not be easy sometimes, if you get 1,000 results. So, yep, the old questions live on thumb.gif

the 780 will not have 256bit bus width, rumors says 384 bit... this is the only thing quite sure, there's no point of doing a 780 with 256bit, again.

Just got mine today as I am going back to single card, done with SLI for good selling off both 4GB EVGA 680's tmrw. (Have had 480 sli, 580 sli, 680 sli)


I had to take off the reactor cover in order to fit the card in the top slot as it touched the ram and heatsink on the RIVE and would fit with it on.

edit: blue screen on restart that instantly went away and then it started normaly :S?

edit: noise to temp ratio is 100x better then my ftw+

Definitely. TFIV is a great cooler. I don't think I'll be able to wait until the non-ref cards next series though, so I might just get a 780 or two on Day 1 and then sell them when the Lightnings come out, like I did with this series (assuming they have an adjustable voltage somehow). I'm sure a reference 780 will still be a pleasant upgrade from a 680 Lightning, even if it is a good overclocker.

I might have my lesser Lightning up on Amazon or eBay soon, as I can get away with only my really good one until the 700-series. So if anyone has a friend or anything that wants a good deal on decent one that's been taken great care of, PM me smile.gif I'm going to save the good one until closer to the 780's release.

what would a used one go for?? just curious....i know they are now 500 and lower..but they are worth every penny..even though i payed over 600 with tax and shipping..but if its one of the first cards and it overclocks good would that matter in the resale market?

I think people that know what they're doing ask more for used cards that overclock well, as they know people will pay the premium for knowing they aren't taking a chance on getting a poor overclocker. A Lightning that's of the first batch, released with the unlocked BIOS natively and overclocks like a beast, would definitely fetch a larger amount than the average used ones. I wouldn't doubt that a good older 680 Lightning would sell for even more than the price of a new one, since again, the buyer would be paying for the peace of mind in knowing that they're not having to take a chance on what they want, and are instead assured they are getting it.

Mine would probably be sold for a decent amount less than what they're going for New. This is by no means among the worst cards I've seen so far. Some have a very difficult time reaching even 1300mhz with +93mv, or more (I've actually gotten one in my search for a really good one frown.gif). The one I'll sell soon hits right around 1320mhz most of the time with +93mv or slightly more. I'm sure it would do better under water, but it doesn't repond well to more voltage on the stock cooler. It does do well on the non-LN2 BIOS though, as it's Boost speed is pretty decent for a 680, 1215mhz, and stays exceptionally cool with a nice and quiet low fan speed. But I'd have to look on Amazon and eBay and see what the average used Lightning is going for and go from there.

yep, used usually ~50-100 lower than new, used but excellent overclocker 50-100 more than new. As dph said, it eliminates the need to take a chance and if you buy/sell a couple cards to get a better one yourself you spend that much on them anyway.
