I'm going to have to pull my block off and make sure the thermal paste spread properly, because I get 45C under full load @ 25C ambient with it having a quad radiator all to itself (and I'm guessing we have the same block). It's really linear too...if my ambient temp goes down 1C my load temp goes down 1C.

With 22C idle is your ambient around 18C?

No idea what my ambeit is sorry. I to have a QUAD rad just for it. I just tried heaven at 1.42v @1425 core 2000 mem. Ran at 46c. Going to see if it will do a vantage run now.

^^ OK our temperatures are more in line. Seeing as you're from the UK, I'm guessing your ambient is probably lower than mine (since you're probably more accustomed to cold temperatures than I am). Ya gotta get yourself a $5 clock/thermometer combo wink.gif

Either you're lucky or I'm unlucky. I can't get higher than 1500 mem no matter what I do. I've never heard of ABE prior to your post. Does it let all the voltages run higher? As you probably know, with a waterblock there's a whole lot more headroom...I could probably go 1.45V or more and stay under 70C. But I'm a bit annoyed at not being able to check a box to download it....

At 1.43ish. Yes it is an unlocked version of afterburn. Just crashed at 1.44ish 1475mhz.

kickflipper, one thing that might improve the OC: set aux to -100mv or -50mv (try both, see which is better for you). But it is not really important if you can't go higher: the difference between 1454 and 1379 is measurable, but not *noticeable*

Hey thanks for the suggestion, I just found that sneaky setting for AUX but it won't let me change it...if I change the slider up or down it just resets back to zero when I click Apply. Any ideas?

Go to page one of this thread and follow the instructions for editing your AB profiles. It will allow all sliders in AB to work.

Not ever with my own gear, I don't earn enough to risk to blow my rig. Anyway, they didn't even bother to reply, this isn't good (what if I have to contact them for warranty, heh).
I already had to contact Asus, answer within 3 days, Alphacool, answer withing 2 days and Koolance, as long as you contact them in working hours, they answer instantly (had a chit-chat of few email with them, lighting fast answers, love it).
I can do 1411Mhz core clock for bench like 3DMark but it's not stable for gaming or Heaven (well, Unigine bench is buggy right now in SLI with newest Nvdia driver, it uses on of the card only at half load), I guess with 10-20mV more it could be doable.
I find it more fun to try to get the highest OC stable enough for gaming a little, than just for a quick 3DMark run, tbh. sleepsmiley02.gif
My cooling is not insane too, so with 28°c IDLE and 52°c after 3h of Crysis 3 (Geforce Experience set it to Very High on everything and 1x SMAA) with 18°c ambient raising to 21°c after the PC warmed the room lol.

Any clarification on what exactly the Lightning LE is?

It's supposed to be the 680 Lightning PCB with a lower base clock (LE for Light Edition?).

I've seen that Afterburner is now available in v3.0.0 in beta, I'm gonna try it when I get home, just because they "added French localization". tongue.gif
Will see if we can still edit the cfg typer.gif

I haven't heard of this, and can't find anything online about it, but maybe MSI now sees no reason to make 680 Lightnings after nvidia insisted on restricting overvolting on Kepler (raising the fear of electromigration, an old-fashioned concern that the Lightning is designed to avoid). Overvolting is the basic purpose of the Lightning series, after all. So why not just cap the Kepler cards at the PE level? Same great stock cooler, which is worth having. If there really is going to be a Lightning LE, then I'd imagine it's a PE with Lightning branding. Or perhaps they will discontinue the 680L and just stick with the PE for Kepler. I bet AMD is pleased with all this.
