Hey guys!

Thanks to all who suggested I update to the 313.96! I've had no crashing issues since the update so hopefully that means my card is not faulty thumb.gif

I have noticed this weird glitching on the blood detail in game though , any ideas which setting this plays into? I can tinker around with each, I just wanted to see if you guys thought this was anything serious.

This is zoomed in using a camera, it looks the same at all distances. The yellow trace around the blood shines like a light in game. This does not happen randomly, all blood splatter in the grass looks this way.


FPS 50 avg, GPU TEMP 60'c, GPU 68-71 %, VRM 70'C..
My game settings are:
vsync -off
cpu max buffered frames- 4
dx - 11
msaa AA - 4
alpha to coverage- enhanced
SSAO- HBAO
FOV- 88.55

All the following are set to the highest option: Textures,ambient lighting,shadow,post fx, geometer, vegetation,terrain,water, environment.

The rest looks pretty good..



I noticed allot of you guys run these benchmark tests so I tried one out ... there where no visual errors( would they show if I had card problems?) and "I think" the score wasn't bad for a stock set up lol...



I'm pretty sure its a crime if I don't learn how to OC this card! soon enough

Cheers !

It's this one Koolance Dual VID Connector, used also by Cryptik with the same block (thanks him)
Available in different colors, I've got it in silver, he has the black one:


PS : +1rep Julio for the great ArtMoney tuto, can't try it cause I'm having trouble with pump/res atm, damnit piece of c**p.
Also thinking about adding the cpu to the loop, so I czn OC to 4.8/5Ghz with no fear to the heat.
Thanks god, I still have my laptop biggrin.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.

I would flash the card back to the BIOS it came with before you sell it, just in case you get a picky buyer that wants the card "as-is". Or if you're in communications with the buyer ahead of time, you could ask them maybe? Since they may be planning on flashing it anyways, going back to the locked BIOS may be counter-productive.

But yeah, some have the fan spin-up and some don't. I never paid attention to which ones do and don't, but that's how it is with some of them. Nothing to worry about really. It definitely will not hurt your fans' bearings.

And I'm sure between all of us here we have every BIOS saved that there is, so whichever one you need, if you didn't save it before flashing, I'm sure someone has it thumb.gif

What's the general feeling about the new nVidia drivers. Anyone having any issues?
post #5826 of 7827
They always worked great for me when I was running SLI 580's. I had tons of issues with my 7970 drivers earlier on but they've been really good since 12.11.
post #5827 of 7827
More specifically, the 310/313 drivers. I updated a while back to the 310.54 and had some issues, so I reverted back to 306.23. Since then they've released many 310.xx beta and non-beta drivers, including the new 313.96 drivers. I was curious what positive/negative experiences everyone had with them on their Lightning(s).

The new drivers have been pretty good in general for me, although before the 300 series drivers I had never corrupted an nvidia driver to the point it couldn't be repaired before, & had that a couple times with the pre-310 300 series drivers. Pretty much had to reinstall windows to get an nvidia card working again.
I do push my system harder than most though, so not sure if it was something completely on my end or not.

If someone could post here locked bios what was added after first 5000. I could flash it back to card and send it to service for fan exchange. Fan runs perfectly but I wouldn't mind if that noise wouldn't be there also. I also wonder why there is only unlocked bios available for download in here. Those bios files doesn't take up much space so if they could add these also.

So today I received my second GTX 680 Lightning, very happy me trying to flash the new one to F8 unlocked LN2 bios for overclocking.

Followed all the procedure like I did with the first lightning, success!

So I reboot BAM !
Computer keep restarting and refuse to boot into windows.
Ok I go into Safe mode and reinstall the driver.
Next time I boot into windows , success!!

BUT
Both NV control panel and Afterburner can't see the new card!!
only GPU-Z can see it.


I noticed the bios written differently in GPU-Z
The first card is like

Bios Version: 80.04.09.00.F8 (P2002-0000)


The second card is like
Bios Version: 80.04.09.00.f8

So, there is no (P2002-0000) and the F is in lower case in the newly flashed GTX 680 Lighting.





In panic, I flashed back the backup bios, reboot
Everything back to normal. SLI enabled. Both card up and running.


This is the original LN2 bios version came with the card out of the box.



Anyone know what should I do to flash it to unlocked LN2 bios??Or which version I should be using?
Or this version is hard locked, there is nothing I can do about it?


Thanks!
