Did you purchase your block from that site? If so how was the experience as far as dealing with a merchant across seas? I'm just curious because I can't find anywhere else that has them in stock.

Ok ! Thank for your help kimir smile.gif

Now I have flashed my bios to the 80.04.28.00.3a one...

But I am a bit lost because I don't have much overclocking experience yet.... frown.gif

Here is what can I see in afterburner :




What are safe overclock settings that every 680 lightning should be able to run ? I just want to have the maximum performance, not push it beyond the limits wink.gif

Thank for your help biggrin.gif
post #5923 of 7827
Safe overclock? there is no such thing biggrin.gif
There is stable and unstable overclock, If your temp are ok, you can keep going until it get unstable.
First thing first, find what your card is capable of with no voltage tweak. Start by increasing core clock only, let's say 100 and run a bench (preferably Unigine Heaven, for me it always crashes first compared to 3DMark, so it's more close to what I can get for everyday use in games). If it passes, increase by 10, if it fail, decrease by 10. After you find the max oc w/o added voltage, do the mem same way. Then you can start increasing voltage, either you can go to the max 100mV and try to find the best core clock or you can do it by steps like 50mV, 75mV. Of course, put the fan at 100% while you bench.
I'm @ +150 core with +75mV and +550 on mem for everyday use, but I go way higher for benching, especially 3DMark Fire strike lol. You can already set a custom fan curve for daily use, default is not that great and you don't want to be @ 100% all the time lol. My temperatures were going crazy so I goes to water cooling anyway. rolleyes.gif

Kimir you're so much helpfull !!!

But what is the power target slide in Afterburner ??



And is it helpfull to tweak other voltage settings like memory voltage and aux voltage ?




Thanks biggrin.gif
post #5925 of 7827
Ah yeah, power limit, set it to 130-150 or more (doesn't matter, will never require that much anyway).
It's been "proven" that reducing the PLL to -100mV, you could achieve better overclock, memory voltage does not seems to be any useful by most of us, increasing/decreasing does not help (me) getting better memory frequency, you may try when you got your max mem oc.

PLL ? You mean aux voltage ?

Okay ! What is your average framerate in Heaven benchmark ? I got 49 FPS without OC !! (directX 11, extreme tesselation, high shaders, anisotropy x16, Antialiasing x8, and 1920x1080 in full screen) redface.gif
post #5929 of 7827
Anyway.... How many 680 have you got ? Does a SLI as a good investment ?

Can't tell you, my pc is waiting for water cooling part right now, should have it all this Friday. Will be the 2nd week w/o my pc ohno-smiley.gif

I've got two 680, I was with two 580 but one of them had a problem and after months of waiting, the shop "upgraded" my 580 SLI setup to the same price range of 680, so I choosed the MSI biggrin.gif
I don't plan to get Titan or whatever is coming so, I'd say I'm happy with what I've got now (this is why I put everything on water cooling).
