Anyways...came home from work to find a brand new Lightning sitting on my porch!
The RMA went through, thank God. Not that I lied or anything, I mean, it was
failing WU's on stock clocks, that was really true. But, I'll admit, since it was my really bad overclocker, I was more than happy when it started failing WU's and I had a valid reason to return it
I was just nervous that they'd run it through a bunch of games and synthetics and take it upon themself to decide there was nothing wrong with the card. Didn't happen though and they did do a swap, checked serial numbers.
But, the model numbers are different.....
"Model Number In- 602-V283-02S" "Model Number Out- 912-V283-009" Haven't put it in the computer yet, am going to now. But the PCB says Lightning on it, so, yeah, we'll see what happens. Will post an update soon....
That's funny the RMA card they are shipping to me has the same serial: 912-V283-009
Do they give all the RMA cards they send out the same serial? Do you still have that card?
That's the model number, not the serial number. Serial number looks like this-> 602-V283-02SB12061XXXXX. You shouldn't be receiving back a card with the same serial number.
The ones I ordered the day they came out were 912-V283-009, I just checked my registered products at the MSI site, registered them at the beginning of July.
I think the difference in model numbers from that post of mine you quoted is from the cards coming with a different BIOS maybe? Because I think that card I got back was locked down, had a locked BIOS instead of the unlocked 3A or F8. I don't remember exactly. Anyways, yeah if you bought the card recently, you'll get one back with the same model number probably, and I'm willing to bet with the same BIOS you got the last card with. Maybe unlocked, who knows.

So the unlocked version of the 3A works with it? Nice.
And yes, my first gtx 680 lightning works perfectly with the F8.
The other only through 3A.I have a question, 70A at 12V line is enough for an extreme overclock?
how much power limit to 70A?
Psu: xfx 850W Black edition.
XFX Black Edition 850w Rail Layout
I have used this to unlock voltage too
VDDC_Generic_Detection = 0
VDDC_CHL8318_Detection = 46h
VDDC_CHL8318_Type = 1
I want to hit as least 17k with my sli in 3mark11.
Btw my validation:
Depending on the rest of your system, I would think you're fine. Just don't go SLI with your extreme overclock on that one Edited by dph314 - 1/25/13 at 1:57pm
