What 3dmark11 score do you get with your lightning?

So far my new $499.99 Gigabyte Windforce GTX 680 is purring along at 1300core +500mem in Heaven Demo with fan set to 50 percent. My load temps with these settings in heaven demo are 51c.

The asus card is going back, this thing is a better overclocker and cooles just as good while taking up so little space. When I find my max OC I will report back. wink.gif

Its a pain in the neck on the first day until you find your sweet spot, but it is easy.

should i start from the boost clock 1176?

Nice, so you quit your job at asus and work at gigabyte now. Is the pay better? wink.gif

Download the Heaven 3 benchmark, then use the settings in the first post of This Thread to try. Not saying those settings are better or worse than any others, but they are pretty much the standard to compare to around here.

Launch Afterburner then launch the Heaven 3. Enter your settings in Heaven 3, hit Run, and when it loads, click the "Benchmark" button at the top of the screen. Let it run, then see what your numbers are in AB after. You can move your mouse along the graphs to see the numbers, or just look at the max numbers along the edge. Scroll down, there's a lot of stuff to look at.

Then just start moving the sliders over a little at a time and hit "Apply". You'll get tired as hell of listening to the Heaven tune, so grab some headphones or crank up some tunes on a different rig, let the Heaven and AB be your only apps running.

Eventually the thing will freeze or crash, so you'll have to reset your rig and back off a bit. But you might be able to say back off the Core Clock and go up on the Memory Clock and not crash, you just have to juggle the settings until you're ready to puke.

It's not cool distorted guitar like the old 3DMarks were, some ambient drum stuff.

Futuremark paid me to put that in there.

I guess this would be your "joking around" side again right?
