Fingers crossed that its good to go, if not I'll need to read up on warranties to see if i can send it back doh.gif

Thanks to all who commented, this is an awesome, knowledgeable, friendly forum!

Purchased months ago probably will not allow you return to the store, but artifacting on stock clocks is enough to RMA with MSI.

I have done MANY RMA's with MANY companies and it is almost always smooth, I RMA'd a MB with them once 2 years ago and it was smooth (a tad bit slow) but smooth. I am sure others here can share tips for dealing with MSI.

In general be nice and polite and FIRM as you are entitled to get it fixed/replaced as it is not working (you will get a replacement not a repair but the replacement might itself be a refurbished on but it will still carry the original warranty!

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

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.

What are you using to connect the 2 blocks? I am about to put a block on my second Lightning and I've been looking at a few different sli connectors. I am using the same blocks BTW

Hey guys, I just bought 680 lightning and loving it! But now here is a problem. I flashed Ln2 bios and it is working properly but im not sure has it damaged my graphics card fan. I think it might have messed up bearing from my 2nd fan on card. Im not sure is ln2 bios the problem or something else. I suppose high end card should have fans that can deal much pressure so maybe my fan is just false? When I start up my rig my cards fans rev up really high and then changes the direction becouse of the dust removal so could that damage fans bearings? But now I messed up my older(locked) bios from card so I tought that maybe someone has older locked bios for my card so I can send my card back to warranty? Im currently running prefectly bios 80.04.28.00.3A so I think the card is made later than first 5000.

Srry about my bad english but I hope you understand and can bear with it smile.gif

The spin-up when booting is completely normal. The card was designed to do that. Worry not smile.gif Why do you think the fan was damaged?

One fan makes some noise and other fan doesn't. And difference in stock bios is that fan doesn't rev to maximum and then turn around. On original bios fan doesn't make much noise on booting so I don't think that it should spin fast as it does now in ln2 bios. Could fan damage itself by rev high and suddenly change direction?

Ah, I see. Yeah that's completely normal as well. Some BIOS's do the fan spin-up at start, and some don't. But either way...it's the same hardware. So if one was made to do it, they all were smile.gif

Edit: Good job on the video Julio thumb.gif

Okay, so some bios has high speed fan removal and some dont? So I think my fan is just faulty. Should I flash old bios back if I sent it to warranty or should I send it just the way it is now? If im going to sell card afterwards it would be nice to put original bios back on. If someone has older locked bios for card I would appreciate that.
