^^ Their bridges aren't product specific. Unless for some reason they decided to change the spacing between the in/out ports of the Titan block.

Thank you, yeah that's what I meant. I wonder if bitspower will work...I have another PC to throw the lightnings in, what better time to get them wet.

Does this look like a normal score with these settings in Unigine Heaven 4.0? They seem low to me but I don't have much experience with this benchmark, I'm just going by other peoples scores and doing approximations. Should I be scoring higher?

I think you can tweak that a bit. I have a mediocre Lightning (asic=70.9), but using the same settings in Heaven, I get this:



At this resolution, my top stable boost clock is 1333. The fan noise is a bit much, and the heat more than I like, so I back off a bit for daily use.

Hi guys...I just installed my new Lightning (MSI GTX 680) according to the instructions posted earlier in this thread....

My settings are as followed...btw...I flashed to the 80.04.28.00.3A.rom with AB 2.2.3

I ran Heaven with the settings below and it ran stable resulting in 2068 points smile.gif
I don't know if it matters but I am running Win 8/64

Core Voltage (mv) +93 (Defaults to 93 when I try to set it to 100)???
Memory Voltage +10 (Any less I and I crash in Heaven)
Aux Voltage -100 (lowered it)
Power Limit 175 (Is it enough)??
Core Clock(MHz) +100 (Seems to be my max) If I add 10 I crash mad.gif
Mem Clock +350 (Stable)
Fan 90%

Temps never go above 56 and GPUz says 1293.4 MHz with the above settings. Is that all my card can do???
Am I on the right track here???
HELP!!!

Aqua makes a connector

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/twkitforgtx5.html

But I used these





I also have a 480 rad on the other side of the case with quick disconnects, when I bench the cards i disconnect the 480 and put my chiller in the loop.

I have ran it in dual and single loop setups, series and parallel. I can never make a decision on how to complete my setup. So it has become my bench inside a case.

Nice, thanks!

Do you have a build log anywhere? I have to figure out which parts i'm going to get for my loop. I procrastinate way too much frown.gif

No I didn't keep a log, I had an idea to begin with, then I joined a team on hwbot and started benching, entered a challenge and can't stop changing and benching, not addicted I just don't want to stop

Hey guys, I've been itching to pull the trigger on a Lightning for quite sometime but I've been patiently waiting it out to see if there will be any word on the 700 series release date. But I've still been shopping around and noticed that supply has been limited. Has MSI stopped production? Maybe because the 700 series is around the corner?
post #6289 of 7827
They went out of stock on newegg and amazon last weekend, which is when I bought one. I don't know if they'll have any more in stock. I would think that retailers wouldn't want to buy more of them when they have other 680s in stock. No word on 700 series yet. I'd be surprised if they came out before December though.
