Exactly, & the more expensive a card gets the more scary it is taking the iron to it. I have killed one new card just having an off day with the soldering.
Looking at my post above I should clarify that the 7970 can beat the Titan in a few benchies still with Hwbot rules, default settings Titan should come out ahead (haven't seen all benchies to really know yet, can't judge just by kingpin results, it's Kingpin...).

I still think the 7970 fares favorably against the Titan, considering the fact that its a much smaller die GPU, its over a year old and its supposedly a less efficient architecture than Kepler. AMD may be onto something when they said they weren't worried about the 7970 being their highest performing video card for the rest of the year if this is the best Nvidia can come up with.

That said, the Titan is still unquestionably the single GPU king bringing the title back to Nvidia legitimately for the first time since the GTX 580 held it. Hoping to get my hands on a couple myself.

Hi everyone i am new here and i came looking for some overclocking advice.
Alright so i got a gtx 680 lightning a few months ago.After successfully flashing the locked ln2 bios to version 3A i decided to do some oc.
Unfortunately my card is not a good overclocker.
For days i've been playing with the settings trying to hit a stable 1400Mhz on the core but it doesn't seem possible.
I've got the voltage set at +250mv,mem voltage at +10,power at 300%,core is at +200Mhz,mem at +400Mhz.The temperatures are still acceptable(max 74c on the core,62c vrms,56c memory)
Now unigine 4 doesn't crash but i get artifacts and i've noticed the core throttling from 1398Mhz down 1320 or less.On the other hand 3d mark just crashes.
If i increase the voltage further it get no artifacts but the throttling still happens and the temps are just too much for me.(80c+ on the core)
Could it be that my psu doesn't deliver enough power to it? because according to afterburner when the throttling happens the power is at 100%-105%
I've got the card connected to a quality 650w psu(54a on single 12v rail) using an 8pin and a 6pin(adaptor that came with the card) But I've also got lot's of harddrives,fans and a very highly overlcoked i7 920 that pulls a lot of wattage witch doesn't leave me with much headroom on the gpu.

Any tips would be highly appreciated!

Hey I did the voltage bypass with MSI afterburner 2.3.1, and it seems that voltage isn't changing.... Still locked to 1,212....

Need some help smile.gif



EDIT: Finally fixed it... Removed and Installed it again.... x)

No its not acceptable, the card with throttle back after 70c

Are you sure? mine didn't throttle even at 80°c on air

No it won't with the LN2 bios!

I preordered a Titan but they don't seem like great overclockers. Might just get another Lightning. Thoughts? Only gaming at 1920x1080P.

Edit I just realized I could actually buy 2 more lightnings for the price I paid for the single Titan. Hmmmm
