Yes I am BACK LOL

I got 4 classifieds and tested them on air individually and then picked up another 2 later before putting them under water just to see if I could get an even better one NOPE the originals which are I think sn# 041 , 043, 044, 045 turned out to be golden ...

So I got 4 universal blocks and some copper heatsinks and made the most monster build (good looking as well) I have seen i a while LOL

the cards took closer to 1.3v under air but under water in 4 way sli seem very happy at 1400mhz with 1.26v might even go lower but I have not checked ... with my crazy rad set up 1 gallon plus res and dual pump the gpu temps are mid 30's to low 40's (they are water cooled in series so the 4th gpu is about 3-4 deg C warmer than the first few ... even in summer at those clocks I doubt it will crack the low 50's if it even gets that warm LOL

BTW playing border lands 2 in surround 3d and seeing each card at 97% usage is AMAZING!!!!

BUT I think I wanna be part of that titan club so I am gonna find some buyer/buyers for these cards, they are AMAZING but I need the newest stuff LOL just moved from my galaxy s3 to the note 2 within a few months and will go to the S4 and Note 3 fairly soon as well ... it make me happy, what can I say hehehe

Can we see some pics? redface.gif

Yeah I'm keeping my S3 until the S4 comes out. So you get good scaling in 4-way SLI with most games, or just Borderlands 2?

If your PSUs can take more, I'd see how high you can really go before selling them. Oh and don't forget to try to knock some of them AMD guys out of first place in the Heaven thread wink.gif

I will take some pics later this afternoon smile.gif

PSU's can take a fair bit more, I need to use 2 15a surge protectors as one trips within 30 seconds of loading over 1400mhz !!! That is ALOT of juice!!!

What settings do I need to run in heaven, I am happy to give it a shot, I have never really done benchmarking before ... I wonder if 7500mem and 1450 core in 4 way can kick some AMD butt?

Some games scale better than others boarderlands 2 is GREAT and on the other end of things BF3 is trouble, a friend of mine and myself use little tricks like changing res while in game to trick BF3 to using near 100% usage otherwise it wants to use, 50% though MOH runs with about 80-95% gpu usage with some dips into the 70's at times ... MOH fps fully maxed in surround 1080p x 3 gives me 90-130 fps again fully maxed. Max payne 3 also gives me 80's and 90's of gpu usage ... and heaven of course uses near 100%.

I actually just listed my classifieds on CL LOL, if I sell em I hope this romour of the titan is real LOL or i will weirdsmiley.gif

Ok so the cards crash on stock clocks well lightning stock anyways . Both of the cards cause this black screen reboot. It hapens in assasin c 3 the most. After I chekt my ram my overcloc. Still hapend. So i ran every game and bench i could find. Left some overnight , like unigen FC3 AC3 in that test they all rebooted when i woke up the next day. Btw i run a 27.5 inch hans g mntr 1920-1200 . Also get a lot of tearing with both cards. And yes on my gtx 470 no problems. Thanx for the help

http://www.overclock.net/t/1235557/official-top-30-heaven-benchmark-3-0-scores Settings are in the first post. You can do it thumb.gif Never did any benching with a setup like that? Damn. You gotta show that thread what you can do biggrin.gif

So, you only can go up to 1450mhz or that's as far as you want to go?

Damn 4 x classys that hit 1400 MHz at 1.26v, very impressive.

Its funny EVGA claims they are binned...............maybe as with the lightnings the first ones were, then when nvidia clamped down, they probably thought why bother people will be awestruck by the initial results and buy them hoping for the same. Less expense and they still sell units = profit.

There's reports of classys overclocking so badly, at least one will not go over stock clocks on stock voltage lol, how bad is that? Would be disappionted if that were me and I had just shelled out for a top tier OC card. You should find buyers no problem.

I'm running my 2 x lightnings at 1280/3911 MHz at 1.21v and they pack a punch, plenty for what I'm doing with 2560x1600 and I can (just) run them and my 990x off an 850w PSU (although I'm considering moving to a larger unit to increase headroom and reduce heat output).

Do we still need to do the voltage unlock hack ??

Sorry, I'm new over here and my lighting should be arriving anytime now. Is that voltage unlock hack for afterburner the one referred to on the 1st post?

I think k2mil is asking if we still need to do the config edit to adjust the voltage. If so then I'm sure you do, since we're not going to get native voltage control any time soon.

Welcome to the site and welcome to the club thumb.gif

But yeah the reference to Afterburner in the first post is for versions proceeding 2.2.3. If you want to use a later version than 2.2.3 because it has a fix for something you'd like to take advantage of, then you'll have to do that config file edit. I just use Afterburner 2.2.3 because I find there's nothing wrong with it as far as what I do with it.

So, using 2.2.3 or editing later versions with the copy/paste of the three lines of code will let you add up to +93mv to the core. If by 'voltage unlock hack' you're referring to more than +93mv, then no, that is something completely different and not in the OP. That allows you any voltage you want, and is pretty dangerous if you're not paying attention to both the process in general, as well as temperatures afterwards.

So...exact same system, and 2 Lightnings crash, but the 470 doesn't. Hmmm.... I don't know, I think it's the PSU for some reason. I'm sure someone can come up with a better diagnosis, but if not maybe you could try another PSU? Order one from a site like Newegg that'll easily let you return it and get a Corsair / Cooler Master or something along those lines and see how it goes.
