Regardless of temps, lower is always better. You should click that button to the right of the fan slider and enable the fan profile, then when you're benching, uncheck the button for auto fan (which uses the fan profile in AB's settings) and set a static speed of 100%. This will give you lower temps which will give you a few extra mhz for benching thumb.gif

Setting +100mv gives you +93mv, that's how Afterburner 2.2.3 is supposed to be. I just meant that there's a hack that allows for setting the voltage at whatever value you want. But yeah I would try that fan setting out. When I bench with one card I was running over 1400mhz and my max temp was only in the low-to-mid 50C's with 100% fan speed set.

Lol, well at 1920x1080 and everything maxed its ok I think. Oh also I recently saw that you were running at 1920x1200, forgot about that. Anyways I'll be really impressive about 8ghz memory

So how do I raise the voltage even higher? Right now my max heaven stable OC is +198 on the core and +400 on the mem.

I want to break 1400mhz and I need a little more power. Max temp is 61c so I still have some headroom.

You have to use the Artmoney hack carefully

This will explain it A little more, I currently have +125 on the voltage, idk how much it is but I get good temps so I have no problems.

Also I don't know if its necessary to have AB 2.2.4, but I used it.

Too bad the tube doesn't match the H100i one in terms of look, glossy/matt. I might change the 2 fractal 140mm fan in the front and or add one on the top, maybe soon™. I've got the space lol
The pump is no quiet at 12v but temp are about 50°c at the following bench frequencies, which I couldn't reach with stock cooling even at 100%.
At 7v it's relatively discret, good enough for movie playback and internet browsing (increase by 5-6°c under bench).

Best 3DMark score so far: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/105893
edit : new best score link updated.

Hmm. I think my card sucks at core clock speed but memory speed is pretty good. I'm testing at 650+ right now. But is it even worth to push it this far?
post #5717 of 7827
I wonder if anyone can offer advice. I received a new 680-L about ten days ago. Using the factory default clock and voltage settings, it would crash during games. I got it stable by underclocking the core by about 100 MHz. I then switched to LN2, again using factory defaults, and it crashed during the video assessment part of the WinSat evaluation! I re-flashed LN2 with 80.04.28.00.3A, and it became stable (in games) at factory defaults. I have not run any synthetics yet. But the core clock will not take even a 20 MHz OC, no matter what I do with voltages. (I'm using AB 2.3.1. with the profile edit to make the sliders actually work.) I ran TDP up to 300%, increased core voltage offset to 100, played with aux/PLL voltage (up and down), and nothing worked. I'm just glad it's stable without underclocking now. It hits 1202 MHz under load, and 1.2090v (according to AB, so whatever real-world voltage that corresponds to), and never draws more than 40% TDP. Temps stay below 64C under load. Interestingly, it will take a nice mem OC: +700 works just fine on the re-flashed LN2 (have not yet tried mem OC on standard BIOS).

The system has been rock solid for a year. I have an i7-3930K OC'd moderately to 4.4 GHz, running on only 1.1300v VCore even with HT enabled. (I hate fan noise, so I never OC aggressively.) I have 16 GB DDR3-1600 running at 1860 MHz with timings of 1t-12-12-12-24-120-12 (tight as stock for 1600 MHz on this RAM) at only 1.5000v. And my old GTX 560-Ti (OEM) ran at 900 core and 2400 mem stable as can be with only 1.0500v. So the system's 875w PSU is hardly a PoS, and should easily power this card.

I have tried toggling PhysX between the CPU and GPU (the 3930K with HT enabled can handle parallel tasks well enough to do PhysX quite nicely); toggling CUDA processing on and off; toggling PCIe gen-3 support on and off in system BIOS, and using/not using the nVidia gen-3 support patch; clean-installing various nVidia drivers (306.97 whql and 313.96 beta work best for me); enabling/disabling HT in system BIOS; moving the card to a different slot; toggling HPET off and on; re-flashing the system BIOS with the new card installed; and re-installing Intel's chipset drivers with the new card installed. I went so far as to re-install Windows 7 with the new card installed (using the 'upgrade' option, not a clean install -- the card isn't worth *that* much bother).

Have I missed anything? Should I return this thing? I was so happy and excited when I ordered it, and now I am truly disappointed and feel ripped off. MSI markets it as an enthusiast's card, and it won't run properly at its default settings.

It generally is an enthusiasts card, kinda strange that it will take no overclock at all...
I usually get lightnings for every generation & they never let me down, I wouldn't be too happy with that either. Did you get it local or online? If it has to be underclocked to be stable on the stock bios at stock voltages, that would be grounds for exchange (kinda sucks if it has to be shipped & leave you without a card for a while, local not so bad).

Looks as we have similar taste...yours maybe a bit more indulgent :-)

I ran Heaven for a few hrs and it was good to go. Wish I could have got some more core clock. But w/e.
