Yeah its a new card and for sure its lower quality "overclocker" it had different sku to bad I lost my investment. The Titan is to expensive for me I'll guess I live with my poor oc lightening and wait until Maxwell generation.... games still play just fine anyways. But if someone have an idea what could i try with my card I'm open Thanks

80.04.47.00.41

go first post there you can see it.
but i guess you need to yes.

FOR THE FIRST 5000 LIGHTNING 680s
80.04.09.00.F7 (non-LN2)
80.04.09.00.F8 (unlocked LN2)

AFTER THE FIRST 5000, WE'VE SEEN THESE LN2 BIOSs FROM THE FACTORY:
80.04.28.00.3A (unlocked LN2)
80.04.09.00.3A (unlocked LN2)
80.04.47.00.19 (locked LN2)
80.04.29.00.3A (locked LN2)
80.04.28.00.39 (non-LN2)
80.04.47.00.18 (non-LN2)



The first 5000 Lightning 680s that were made shipped with the two BIOSs that are mentioned above. However, apparently NVIDIA has now imposed a new limitation that prevents all other 680 Lightning cards from having voltage control, even with the new Afterburner 2.2.3. These newer 680 Lightnings still have two BIOSs (one regular, one LN2), but the LN2 BIOS is no longer "unlocked" to allow voltage control above 1.175. Thus, if your LN2 BIOS version is something other than 80.04.09.00.F8, you have one of the new restricted cards. If this is the case, you can flash your card's BIOS (while it is in LN2 mode) with the unlocked LN2 Mode BIOS file (BIOS version 80.04.09.00.F8). Download this BIOS file here.


To flash the BIOS, download the latest version of nvflash here.
extract the nvflash files to C:\
save the BIOS file to C:\
open elevated cmd window (hit start button, type "cmd", right click cmd icon, run as administrator)
change directory to C:\ (type " cd C:\ " )
OPTIONAL: type " nvflash --protectoff " then hit enter (turns off any error msg that may result from software write protection)
BACKUP ORIGINAL BIOS: Type " nvflash -b backup.rom " and a copy of your bios will be saved to the nvflash directory
type " nvflash -4 -5 -6 680L_UnlockedBIOS.rom "
wait for it to finish
reboot
OPTIONAL: reinstall drivers.

Just purchased the 680 lighting last night (pretty stoked about it). Should have it sometime today. I assume the odds of the card already being unlocked is pretty much 0% these days. But, in order to gain control over all the power settings ect...I'll have to flash the bios to any LN-2 unlocked bios correct? Or I could get lucky with an unlocked bios? (switching from a twin frozr III 680 which could barely overclock but still a great card.)

You need to to put unlocked bios e hack Afterburner to get more voltage.thumb.gif

Another thing to check, what does z-gpu report as the pci-e speed and lane for the card? Prior to updating the bioa on my sabertooth z77, it was being recognized as pci 1.1 8x. I updated the bios and it went to 3.0 8x. I then reseated the card and it went to the proper 3.0 16x. Just another thing to reconsider since yoy have the same mobo as me.

Btw, you should be able to get the 3570k to clock a good bit higher than what you have. Im running air cooled with the 212 Evo and i have mine clocked at 4.4.

Finally was able to look at this. Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. Still a no go. Looked at gpu-z. There is something strange there. It says "pci-e 3.0 x16 @ x4.” What does this mean exactly? I plan on upgrading my bios later to see if this fixes the problem.
