[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 57

post #561 of 7827
I think that a water cooled 680 Classy with the EVBot just may be the baddest single GPU card on the planet but it sure as heck ain't worth the price. You're getting dangerously close to 690 territory at that point...

EDIT - Also, when MSI gets their heads out of their you-know-whats and delivers voltage control (and blocks become available for the 680 Lightnings) they will reclaim the "King" title in my opinion...

659$ + 99$(EV Bot) + 150$ (EVGA block)

The lightning certainly isn't cheap but the classified is on a different level in terms of expensive lol. Thats basically 690 price like you stated. On air certainly the classified isn't amazing, it seems to be overclocking on average around 1280 (high 1200s) per posts at EVGA + newegg. I'd certainly welcome seeing more results OC wise on the classy but it is what it is so far, that is what users have reported.

I do hope the voltage stuff comes out soon, but water blocks are being developed thankfully. I'm definitely in for 2 lightning blocks thumb.gif

For all the BF3 players on here, have you noticed some stuttering or performance drops in multiplayer? I've switched back and forth between 304.48 and 304.79 drivers and the lackluster performance in certain maps still exists.

The Classy without the EvBot is a standard 1.175v VS the Lightning 1.21v and 1.26v.....So yeah, what do you expect? rolleyes.gif

I'll have two after I sell off my signatures. I look forward to comparing my oc's vs the lightnings. Last gen, I had two 580 Classified Ultras that ran 1058Mhz 24/7 in SLI......That's why it's so funny reading that guys post because he bashes the Classified so much without ever owning it. rolleyes.gif

This is the best bench I found on my HDD from the Fermi days....

580 Classy 980MHz SLI

I have noticed that the game is horribly bad when I turn off vsync. Jerky, stuttering, etc.

That's great. I so happy you're excited. Now, go create a Classifieds thread, and bloat.

On a handful of multiplayer maps, it never dips below 59 fps with VSYNC on, but on a few, it drops tremendously.
