Second* try, with 1372/7114 (+100mV) and my bios with correct revision and OC settings:
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/24642

Godamn it get really hot, 85°c on GPU1 and 73°c on GPU2 max, ordering the watercooling loop tomorrow ! sleepsmiley02.gif

[*] not really the second try, I had a weird issue, with 3DMark stopping unexpectedly, figured on guru that it was because of Fraps running, after exiting it, went all good.
Good night sleepysmiley03.gif

Hey guys this is me haris again, I was one of the first original owner of this card. Unfortunately a few months ago I returned my lighting and bought the classified (don't plan to discuss the switch atm lol). Now fast forward to this year I just pulled a trigger on another one of these bad boys and want to fully unlock the card to its max potential. Here are a few key points I am looking at

1. Flash the card with the OLD 3A bios?
2. Use msi afterburner 2.2.3?
3. What are the water block options for this video card
4. I am using a seasonic platimax 860 power supply, will run single card for now but will upgrade to titan asap :O


I have a lot of experience flashing nvidia cards (flashed my gtx 680 classified to unlock 1.26v, flashed my gtx 660 to unlock 150% power target), please let me know if i am missing anything else.

Thank you for your time and please let me know anything else that I should be looking for (I primarily play bf3 at 1080p, with all ultra settings and 2xmaa)

Thank you guys

1)Yes
2)Yes
3) There are 2 blocks, one from EK and another from Aquacomputer.
4) Is that even a question lol?

Titan will be SOOOOOO overkill for bf3 at 1080p, unless you run it at 120hz. Good buy with that lightning thumb.gif

Thank you sir

Np, and i think you could easily run 2 lightnings with a 850w PSU. There will be absolutely no problems with one, unless the PSU dies on you, but lets hope that doesn't happen tongue.gif

I had two on a 875w PSU, overvolted and overclocked they drew 925w from the wall...
post #5597 of 7827
Yep 860w is fine, I was running SLI on an Antec 850w SG plus an OC and overvolted 990x without maxing it out. Just moved to an AX1200w but for headroom and silence more than need.

Ive had that before, reboot and flash as the first thing I did fixed it.

Same for everyone I think, if you check out the Fire Strike 3dMark threads. I think we've been sold a beta...

I've tried on a fresh boot right away and I get the same error. I've also tried putting the files on another drive but the problem persists, any other ideas?
