My bios is 80.04.47.00.19. I have tried to flash with 80.04.28.00.3A (unlocked LN2).

My question is - is it safe to proceed?

Thanks in advance and please excuse my bad english.

Its safe to proceed. I have done similar for three 680 lightning. I have changed both stock and ln2 bios. If u have sli u can write index=0 or 1 after "nvflash". Gpu main = 0 and 2nd gpu is 1.

Oh no, no unsatisfactory framerates here. It's running at pretty much a constant 120fps, so, I'm just saying, for something like that, SLI is needed at 1080p. Without SLI, I'd only be getting about 60fps, which isn't enough. I just wanted to point out that since it takes a 80% load on each card to get 120fps, SLI on 1080p is necessary if I want to enjoy my 120hz monitor. Yeah, Black Ops 2 runs great, 100fps min's with AO, TXAA X4, everything else maxed. Could still look a little better, but oh well, for a COD it looks pretty decent wink.gif

Just means someone else gives a home to the 680 Lightnings I've come to love over the past few months sad-smiley-002.gif

Hahaha you sound like an absolute slave to impulse with the above dph!! If I find a game that I cant play at 1400/7000 SLI then ill worry about upgrading.

What sort of monitor setup do you have DPH? 30" 1600p?

Slave I am smile.gif I've had this 3390k/680 SLI setup as-is for a bit now. The upgrade bug is starting to make my skin itch. I just hope I can find my credit card by the time the 780 is released, little bastard grew legs and ran out of the room.

No, I'm still on 1080p. I can't go back to 60hz, so I'm waiting for even a 1200p 120hz to upgrade. I know there's some Chinese ones out there, or ones you can OC, but I'd rather wait for a trusted company in the US. But there's a lot of games that really need SLI to even just get close to over 100fps when maxed out. Hitman isn't recognizing SLI so I need my one card at 1424/7000 just to get around 60fps average. Even SLI in Black Ops 2 running at over 100fps puts a 70-80% load on each card. So, what I'm trying to say basically is that even at 1080p you need a lot of horsepower to enjoy a 120hz monitor. Well, I know some people don't. But I don't like to compromise often so I want the game maxed out and be able to get over 100fps. So, yes I'm only at 1080p, but even with a series like COD that's always been considered easy to run, if I had Black Ops 2 on one card I wouldn't be getting the framerate I want. So...I got the upgrade bug and it needs to be fed tongue.gif

Anyone interested can PM me. I know I won't be able to keep track of everyone that posted something in the thread, so it'd be better to just PM me if interested smile.gif

Hmmm I can 180 fps in Black ops 2 with a single lightning. All maxed out.

You have done it right! nothing more do to - you are ready for overclocking - i prefer EVGA precision or MSI afterburner

Theres a locked and unlocked version of the 3A bios, if your card is not old, its probably locked. see if you can OC much higher with it, or measure vgpu with a dmm, if its stock, grab the 3A from page 1

Well I ordered my second card today since I am not upgrading to Titan or the GTX780 if that comes out. This is one niiiiice, does 1280 MHz BF3 stable at 1.15v smile.gif with an ASIC of 82.5%. Mem does an easy +906 like the 1st card too so I'll have plenty of bandwidth to use with them (~250GB/s per card).

I never SLI'd my first pair of cards, but I did for the first time tonight and damn, smooth game play or what. Loving it. Annoyingly I have both cards at 8x PCI-E due to the fact the coolant lines for the primary card define where I can put the second card (still aircooled) but my second aquacomputer block and SLI connector is on its way should be here monday/tuesday next week and I can get them both on water.

These things kick ass biggrin.gif

How does the aqua block compare to the ek block? i have the ek block on order but cant get the aqua block:( unless sidewinder ships to SA
