It's not "Limited edition", the L stand for light.

It's a shame they already discontinue it, there is no replacement at this price range yet >_>

Looks like it's the same as this:

I was looking at reviews of the Lightning (I'm interested in finding a very quiet GPU), and I came across this review:

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphics/display/msi-n680gtx-lightning_4.html#sect0

Does something seem wrong with the results they got here? Seems like other reviews found that the Lightning is actually a very quiet card. Or am I reading these results incorrectly?

Yes that's the one, they name it differently but it's the same.
Weirdly, this one appear only on NA and JP version of MSI website, not on global (and EU/France for me).

Wow that's a shame. MSI did a very custom GTX 680. That news, however, got me a little worried. See, several days ago, I posted, as my first post, asking for suggestions of gpu stress tools, because my PSU fried my mobo and my hdds and cpu, and i wanted to know if my gpu got damaged too.

So far, i have tested with furmark, occt, msi kombustor, 3dmark vantage and 3dmark11. And everything seem to be working fine.

But how can i be sure that my gpu wasnt damaged? Because that's the gpu i want.

I dont want a lower replacement. However, several members have posted how to flash the GTX 680 PE with the Bios of a Lightning though.

P.S: I checked with a PSU tester, the volts on the PCI-E rails of my damaged PSU (wich was a Seasonic x-750, what a shame for Seasonic) and it says 12.1 V. Is that alright? Do I need a more powerful PSU, because i already bought a Corsair AX760, and im worried i need more power. My CPU is a Core i7 3770k, it will be OC. and 32 gb ram.

Thanks in advance!smile.gif

That should be enough if you don't go sli.
And if your card is working don't be afraid that it could, possibly, maybe damaged. Either it's working, either it's burned.

Since I'm new to the overclocking world, i wanted to ask a question.

I'm using the latest afterburner with the latest drivers for my gtx680 lightning. i can push the core clock up to +100. after that, either the kernel crashes and restarts or the core clock drops to 700 immediately and stays there no matter what I do unless I reboot my PC.

Any help/explanation?

Thank you!

Thanks for your reponse Kimir. That is what i thought. In fact I did a little overclocking on my Lightning and could reach a stable gpu core of 1201MHZ and a gpu boost of 1301 MHZ under furmark and kombustor.

The fallen mobo i had was a very cool Mpower Z77 from MSI frown.gif

On the PSU subject, tha wattage power is really enough for an Overclocked 3770k right? In that Motherboard?


As a side question, when i was trying to overclock my Lightning. I set to max the Power Limit slider under MSI Afterburner. Also i set the GPU Boost Frequency or Core Clock to maximum without notice it.

When i tested MSI Kombustor, i obviously crashed the benchmark tool and my PC freezed. Does that sort of mistakes damaged the GPU? I just rebooted my PC, and restarted the overclocking process making small increments, and everything worked fine.

Cheers

My latest stable 3dmark 11 run on my lightning. 1424 core/ 4001 mem. I need to change the cpu soon, my score suffers from it frown.gif

Not a bad score at all. Dont think upgrading cpu is going to change a whole lot. Maybe in 3dmark11 but not in actual gaming and certain other benchmark programs
