Seems pretty good pretty much same as me when I ran the benchmark at those settings. Have you tried going any higher on the OC? I was able to do +130 on the core at stock voltage. +140 need more voltage. Currently running the benchmark @+185 and +400 on the mem.

I did +135 (lol) and +125 but both crashed the app. I really want +135 but I don't know what to tweak to get it stable

Just max out the core voltage. That way you know as you slowly start to overclock if it crashes its because you are hitting the gpus limit and should back off around 20mhz.

I'm still in the process of overclocking mine. I overclock really slowly. I started off at +100 on the core and +400 on the mem and started raising the gpu clock 15-20mhz at a time then play all my games and benchmarks and OC some more.

When I hit my gpu limit then I will work on raising the memory.

Also I have suggest making a user defined fan control setting. I have mine to hit 100% if the gpu passes 60c. So far my max temp has been 64c.

Hey Guys!!!!!!!!!.............Got my Lightning today!. first thing I did was flashed the LN2 bios to the old unlocked bios. Dloaded afterburner 2.2.3 and boom, we in bizz!!







Gpu was selected for the phys-x test, didnt realize that!!

Great card so far, max temp was 66C in vantage redface.gif, sorry about the grainy pics, 2 lazy to take the d90 out

Well I don't get it. I ran heaven again using the same stats I posted and it crashed the app. Then I ran 3dmark11 using +137 and it ran fine and no crashing. I figure I got nothing to lose, SO I booted up Sleeping Dogs (+135, +500) and that ran fine. Drove around the entire map (highway) and no random artifact popping up.

Nooo, all cards stock 1.15v bios rises to 1.175v (software) when card is at max boost *but this is actually ~1.20-1.21v real when measured with a DMM.

heaven is pretty stressful, perhaps its highlighting instability before the other tests?

Still testing here. Let's see what my max settings is. Keep pushing GOGOGO:

Yeah I was just going by what most people think smile.gif. I know those that have measured the references do in fact get higher than 1.175v. I was just saying that even going from stock reference to a stock unlocked Lightning is a voltage bump, let alone doing 1.36v or higher.

Ah yep vs the unlocked LN2 bios sure, the lightning has around 50mv more than stock bios or reference card.

I still haven't got around to clocking mine in SLI, haven't even flashed the LN2 bios to card no#2 yet hehe. I'm using the newer card as 1 and the older as 2, running 1.15v (stock) on 1 and 1.1625v on 2 for an easy 1241/7400 daily clocks. I couldn't (or rather didn't want to) OC them both until I had sorted out my PSU, as it was an Antec Signature 850w but didn't have 4 x 8-pin PCI-E cables so I was forced to use 6->8 pin adapters which limited one card to 225w. I have a Corsair AX1200 now so all is well, just been busy with work and gaming when I get a chance, but loving this pair and think I may just skip titan and the 700 series and keep saving for my house smile.gif

Looking forward to your results after you finish flashing thumb.gif
