Thanks, so probably not get 10% increase in framerate? I'm putting together a egpu system for my laptop, so a 10% increase may be worth it to me.

10% if you're very lucky, is 10% really worth spending all that money for?

Well, its not really ALL that money, I'm pretty confident in selling my current high OCer 670 for at least $300, so it's only about $150-200. Also, I just moved from a SLI desktop to this laptop egpu setup....with about $1000 extra in my pocket, so I can afford a little light spending if it can get me through to maxwell and thunderbolt ports in 2014. However, 10% is about what I would want out of my money, and I'm not sure I would get it. Thats why I asked you guys smile.gif thanks again for the input

also, what will 10% more frames do, exactly?

30fps -> 33fps
50 -> 55fps
100 -> 110fps

What would be the benefit? Crappy fps will remain crappy, you wouldn't notice any difference at all at higher fps. ALL of this assuming that you get a high overclocking 680.

Very true, great point. I guess it wouldn't help me for future games that can't play well on my setup.

Ok first thing first.

Here is my submission to this prestige club biggrin.gif




http://www.3dmark.com/fs/148347





Ok I have a little tip on lightning overclocking(probably many of you already knew about that)

It's the VRM temp and AUX voltage.

When I first got this lightning SLI setup.
I found the overclock ability on these cards are meh.
I couldn't get pass 1224 core on LN2 bios(the bios added 500mv voltage already!)

Everytime I went pass that. Heaven lock up. no matter how much voltage I added to it.


After few days. I looked the VRM temperature closely. they hit 70 degrees+ at extreme setting Unigine 4.0
Ok I try to lower the AUX voltage in AB by 50mv and create a user fan profile.

Profit!!

Seems keeping VRM under 60 degree have a great benefit for OCing .
My cards aren't any good (ASIC 72.9 and 73.1%)
But managed to OC to 1306 (pass 3Dmark and Unigine 4.0 extreme benchmark) stable.

By just lowering the AUX voltage and use custom fan profile.

I didn't even add the core voltage!


Didn't bother to find the MAX OC with core voltage.
Actually now I clock them back to default clock for daily use(They are just too fast for the games I play)

Hello People.

One question for those who have experience on RMA:

After 6 month use my card is crashing at stock clocks/volts on Heaven 4/Valley/Htiman Abs/Sleeping Dogs/etc, I think it might got broken (tried diferent drivers, cleaning, etc, etc, etc).

I bought it from newegg in the states but I live in Argentina. Do I have to do the RMA process with newegg or with msi directly? Anyone nows if there is an international msi guarantee so to avoid sending the card back to the states?

Kind Regards and thanks in advance!

Well this is rather annoying. After installing heaven 4.0. My OC seems to be unstable (+100 core +725 memory). I dropped memory to +500 and it still wasn't able to finish frown.gif

I believe you will need to go to msi
