The PE doesn't have the lightning ln2 bios, & I have read that it uses a different voltage controller.

I have these cards in SLI and I was wondering about running the fans at 100% 24/7.....Would it be bad for the cards?

I assume the mod I did to previous 2.3.1 version somhow affected it, not sure

Can use use more than 100 mv ?
post #6575 of 7827
it works for me 2 also it works in the new Afterburner 2.3.1, i am on non ln2 bios and voltage goes up too 1.280
post #6576 of 7827
Installed Afterburner beta 9 and I can get +130 core +500 memory now. Before it was just +104/+500. Still can't get +135 frown.gif (using 3A bios).

Anyways noticed that Unigens valley reports 133x but on afterburner its reporting 1320 on core. Is something screwed up? Also on HW monitor my voltage never goes up but on Afterburner I have it set at +50.

It's actually not, because I recently placed my Desktop under my desk and I can barely even hear that my computer is on now so..........

@ Jessie, I bought a PE hoping to pair it with a Lighting and am happy to report all is well. My Lightning scored a fairly low 73% ASIC quality, the PE scored a 71%. The PE had the default bios loaded on both A & B, yes it does have a working switch. I flashed its A & B with bios from my Lightning, running both on LN2 (non-unlocked). Here's them running Crysis 3 in SLI:

I also read the PE has a different voltage controller, but all seems the same after the flash.

I'm confused. According to this nvidia page: "NVIDIA GPUs are designed to operate reliably up to their maximum specified operating temperature. This maximum temperature varies by GPU, but is generally in the 105C range (refer to the nvidia.com product page for individual GPU specifications)."

OK, so let's go to the related nvidia product page. It claims that the GTX 680 max temp is 98C.

So then, why does the company prefer to throttle this chip at 70C? Obviously, we want to avoid the max temp, but why shy away from it by such a wide margin? There ought to be some headroom between 70C and 98C. Why isn't 80C or 85C a perfectly safe limit during hard use like gaming?

LN2 bios doesn't throttle, one more reason to use it.
