[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 603

My lackluster memory always kills my physics score...
post #6022 of 7827
Hi everyone

I just purchased the lightning. I got a couple of questions for the club.

Does msi support the new locked cards if the old ln2 bios is flashed? Failing that, Can it be reverted back to the locked bios without msi knowing?

What kind of OC potential does the "locked" card have?

Does unlocked OCing create much noise over the factory settings?

I value queitness more than extreme overclocking, and i must say i am extremely impressed with this card. I had a reference 670 that sounded like a leaf blower. I returned it and got the msi and i think it was well worth the 200 dollar price dif. I did notice however that this card coil whines a tad bit. I noticed it during the Windows Exprrience Index test, the Triangle of Death MSI Kombustor test, and the opening credits of Crysis 2 ( crytech, nvidia plug). Its most noticable during WEI. Is this normal for the MSI 680 ? I have read that the 7970 cards do it very often, but only come across a couple of examples for the 680 lightning in youtube vids, nothing else. Im wondering if i got a bad card.

I am a console gamer turned PC gamer, so i appreciate your patience if my questions are a tad noobinsh. Im typing on my phone so pardon any bad grammer as well


Thanks

3930k & 2 x 680 lightning boostred to 1400 core scores about 21k for me in 3d11, I still have a lot of benching to do with the 680s .

It is a Videocard Benchmark. But you loose any challenge if you have a low Physicsscore. sicksmiley.png

Dual channel on a triple channel rig, I know it has a pretty good effect on 2d scores, & probably has some effect on the physics score.

If you get around to it FtW would you run through the Valley bench with dual 680 Lightnings?

I'm hoping to bench the sli 680s & 3930 a bit tonight, still need a vantage score for the team comp at hwbot & can run valley while at it.

My best 3D11 sli was this



Vantage was this



I haven't benched with any latest drivers, not records but respectable I guess

Unigine Was this

Please run Valley 1.0, Heaven 4.0, 3dmark11 and Vantage if you get the chance. I'm thinking of going SLI 680 Lightnings under water and want to compare scores to my 7970's. I think they'll be close but I really just want to switch back to Nvidia for a while.

How on earth did you get a 26k GPU score with two cards???
post #6030 of 7827
It takes a lot of time and effort, many bsod's, rsod's, freeze's and reboots, trying every combination of voltage and frequency settings until you hit a good combination, many many average runs for one good one. Well it takes time effort and determination. hwbot version of Unigine Heaven is still the toughest bench for me.
