I've heard a couple places say that the BIOS will be locking the cards at up to 1.2v depending on the partner, giving us a measly 38mv of overvoltage at most to play with. I'm hoping this can't be right, as Nvidia actually has the word "Overvoltage" on their site for the first time in a damn long while, and reviewers have been saying that comments from Nvidia were along the lines of "We gave you Titan because many of you enthusiasts wanted to have fun". So, I know someone can just edit the BIOS, but still, depends on what the hardware is locking the voltage at then at that point.

So...who knows. It's overclock on the stock voltage will turn it into an even bigger monster, but actually having more than 38mv to play with would make this beast worth every cent.

At 15°C it should do higher clocks than at 79°, almost every card behaves like that to some degree. Water didn't help 680s too much but it did make a small difference in clocks at the same voltage, colder yet made more difference (& allows more voltage).
Voltage can always be increased, but at that cost it does get scarier taking the soldering iron to a card. Also have to see how it would need to be modded, a simple VR isn't bad, VID modding would suck!

I second that, reference to play with until we see what custom boards become available. Man the tables are about to turn on the bench scores, can't miss out on them.

The card overclocks really bad for me... I can go to +90 Core clock and + 200 Memory clock without voltage tweaking, but even if I put the Core voltage to +100mV it changes nothing I can't go higher than these values ! frown.gif SAD !

Hey Kimir ! I really don't understand what's going on because I think my Physic score (CPU) is pretty low in 3DMark 11 (2x lower than yours) and 20% lower than it should be !!! Do you know a software where I can "benchmark my CPU" and compare it to others ?

Thanks smile.gif

I have a 3930k not a 2600k, you can't compare those on physics lol. Your physics seems correct from what you can see on 3DMark11 results of others.
See:
3.8Ghz ~ 9000 physics
4Ghz ~ 9500 physics
You need at least 5ghz to get near to 12k physics.
It's more weird about you OC capability of the lightning, did you edited the cfg? asked a page ago you might have skipped it.

Editing the Cfg is for bypass the voltage limitation right ? To go above the +100mV limit ?
Because many people can go to +180 Core Clock with only +50mV
post #5957 of 7827
So I think the voltage bypass is not necessary

Nice....

only 2 Titans kills 2 Asus Ares II (4 GPU)...
