[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 561

post #5601 of 7827
Need alittle advice, I'm starting to piece together an egpu system for my laptop. You don't need to be familiar with this, all you need to know is that it requires the best single card solution, and that overclocking can be done just as easy as a desktop. I'm torn between using my current msi gtx 670 pe card or buying a gtx 680 lightning. My current gtx 670 is stable at 1398Mhz.....caveat... it's chilled liquid cooled and never sees positive celsius. In the egpu setup it would be back on air cooling, or possibly a modded H100. I don't suspect it will do 1398, but may do 1330ish. Also memory overclock on this card is very poor. If I were to buy a new gtx 680 lightning, flash ln bios on, then overclock it what kind of performance increase(or decrease) range am I looking at for games?

To put it shortly: msi gtx 670 pe @ 1330ish/tiny mem oc VS new msi gtx 680 lightning, what kind of performance gain will I see in games %fps wise. I've seen 1356 670 = 1298 680, how rare are the 1350 and 1400mhz lightnings out there?

I hated the R310 family, but the new 313.95's seem to working great for me so far.

That's how it's supposed to be. If you use a later version than 2.2.3, you have to edit the config file to allow for voltage control.

I'm having a big trouble here with my cards

Take a look at this PIC. this was DURING the game (BF3)

Core clock is down to 810 for a huge time on both cards... is this normal?

Totally agree with you.

Have you tried increasing the power limit further more and what are the temperature of the card(s)? And please, don't tell me you are in SLI with driver 310.90 ! Get the beta one already,310.70 and 310.90 are really bad for SLI.

I can't see usage. Could you detach the graph so the whole thing is showing?

I'm willing to bet that usage was probably pretty high if it was BF3 though, so, no, that's not normal. But if you could detach and post the whole graph, that'd be nice. Also try selecting 'Force Maximum Performance' for Power Management for BF3's profile in the Nvidia Control Panel.
