Heaven 4.0 crashes for me. Note its a program crash not a driver crash so my overclock is not the problem. It says Heaven has stopped working windows is looking for a solution. Any ideas as to what may be the problem?

Please excuse the noobness but I am a noob with all this stuff, and some of it doesn't make sense. However, with all my hobbies I like to jump in an go crazy. I am looking to pick up two titans soon, however I am assuming I won't be able to get 2 (or 1), and need a backup plan. that backup plan seems to be the MSI Lightning. My main concern is that the voltage on newer lightning has been locked, and they do not perform as well as the older ones. Is this simply a software/BIOS issue that can be fixed. Also, if it can be bypasses is this something a noob could do with relative ease or assistance. thanks for the help.

It's extremely easy, you just need to flash the bios (preferably the LN2 one, keep the default one as a backup) with the unlocked 3A LN2 bios.
The tutorial is on the first page of this thread. wink.gif

Thanks for the help. I just wanted confirmation so I can nail down a backup plan.

Yeah, it's better to get that kind of backup plan, especially when the Titan is more a speculation than truth, until an announcement from Nvidia. rolleyes.gif
New Intel CPU are also being leaked, for this year. Those plus Titan, you can already plan to renew an entire build biggrin.gif

Hey guys, I asked a question a few weeks ago, but never got a response. I've seen you guys find that a 670 @1359= 680@1298, with this in mind, do you think it would be worth upgrading from a gtx 670 capable of 1333Mhz to a gtx 680 lightning. Also, my MSI 670 PE's mem cannot be overclocked very well (+150Mhz in AB). Do you guys think it's worth it upgrading to a 680 Lightning, would it grab me another 5-10% fps if I get a good overclocker? I will be cooling it via H100 using "The Mod".

It wouldn't really be an upgrade, more of a sidegrade. It would be a waste of money.
