Love how you have cutting edge electronics in front of a 'live simply' poster. Nice juxtaposition lol
post #6372 of 7827
I have a question that I'd like to see if anyone can answer... I have 2 MSI GTX 680 Lightnings running in SLI and yesterday I took them out for cable management purposes and when I put them back in I switched them up (from top to bottom) and the one that used to be on top and is now on the bottom is now having a bunch of issues. The fans are running constantly at like 3,200RPM and I can't get them to go down no matter what I do... but if I go into the Nvidia control panel if I click on something that uses the graphics cards to do the fans will go back to idle for a couple seconds and jack way back up. ONLY THE ONE HAVING THE ISSUES IS RUNNING AT HIGH RPMS... The other one works flawlessly. The card with the issues also causes BSODs after the computer has been on for a few minutes and I try to open a game or something... somethimes the screen goes black and either stays black or occasionally it will come back on and say Nvidia drivers crashed and have re-opened or re-freshed or something (can't remember exactly what it said... then it will do it again in like 30 seconds... The computer started throwing random errors and shutting different programs and drivers down. It was saying at first that the graphics drivers were messing up... So I reinstalled the Nvidia drivers but it didn't fix it... I also reflashed the bios on it and switched the LN2 switch and that didn't fix it... The graphics card just is giving me all kinds of problems now... I ALSO tried switching it back to the top... but didn't fix the problems. If any of you have any ideas on what's going on or what to do I would be so appreciative!!! This computer is my baby and this is really frustrating me... Both cards worked fine for the last couple months... This card with the issues has always been a little less of a performer that the other... and it wouldn't take the same BIOS flash as the other card... and the LEDs on the back are a different tint of blue than the other card... I think it might be an older stock card... I bought both Brand New from Newegg a couple months ago or less... I'm just so lost... Please help me... Does anyone know what the RMA / Return policy is for the Lightnings from Newegg??? Or who I need to call? If someone can help me with this I will forever be in your debt! Sorry about the long post.

My advice is to RMA through MSIs website. Word of warning. I got a card back from MSI in its stock retail box taped up with shipping labels all over it. So don't be shocked if you get a dud card back do to bad shipping habits. It took about two weeks from the time I sent mine in until I got it back.

I have RMAed two Graphic cards with Newegg, both replacements are brand new card with no sign of opening or usage. However since Newegg's Graphic card return window is only 1 month after invoice date you have missed your window. You will have to RMA through MSI.

So my best stable overclock is 1400/3475 with +100 core/memory and +0 aux (with the card having a quad radiator to itself still).

I guess I just got really crappy memory chips on my card.

I'm waiting for Mcmaster Carr to fulfill my Tygon order on Monday and then I'll drain the loop, install the 2nd card and do the CPU and whatnot.

I can't be the only person having issues with 314.14 and 314.21 beta drivers am I?

Here's a video of the issue. I've made a couple of threads, one on this forum and one on the official nvidia ones without much replies. The reply on OCN states that it happens to him as well... what about you guys?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tgT5TXvDAk

Anytime I hit apply for a profile, change or no change, the Core Clock defaults to reference speed (1006mhz) and undervolts. I hit apply again and it goes back to my normal clock (1280) and voltage. I wouldn't care if when I booted up it were my clock, but it's always the 1006 default reference clocks unless I manually load the profile up every time.

I wanted to be clear that this happens on both LN2 bios and stock bios. Memory clock is completely unaffected.

Note: This never happens with 314.07 WHQL. When I used 314.14 this happened as well but there wasn't any real reason for me to use 314.14 so I just stuck with 314.07, but now that 314.21 is out there is a huge increase in performance for Tomb Raider and I'd like to use them, but this bug drives me absolutely crazy.

Your core clock is Really nice. I'm only able to push 1346 on my core for gaming , 27/7 use. Also running a quad for it. Is your LN2 BIOS? What afterburner your running and whats your power limit, core volt set at to achieve that high 1400 on core?

That is definitely a bug you've came across. Though i'm using 314.07 WHQL driver and LN2 BIOS and experience no such problems. I have tomb raider but never got started on it. Will wait for the better driver to come out. How are your frames in the game? and which settings for 1 or 2 Lightnings?

Yeah I've done it all. It is 100% a driver issue. Have had a guy on OCN confirm it and a guy on nvidia forums. The minute I reinstall 314.07 it works properly again.

With 314.07 the game is unstable and crashes to desktop a lot. General performance (with overclocking) using Ultra preset was around 65 fps. Ultimate preset (TessFX On) was about 45fps.

With 314.21, General performance (same overclocks) with Ultra preset was 106fps and with Ultimate preset was about 64 fps.

Huge Huge Huge boosts.... Biggest I've personally ever encountered in terms of driver boosts.
