OK then, I could assume that there is nothing wrong with my gpu for now. However, is there a way to stress test the gpu to see if his longevity was affected?

What would you do?

Please add me to the list of owners. Just got mine today.

BIOS Version: 80.04.28.00.37 (is the 37 a good or bad version?)

Note: Only turned up AB settings to show whats its allowing.

Why would you be added to the lightning version when you have a Power edition?

My mistake. Didn't know Lightning meant Power Edition. You don't have to add me than.

It is very similar to the lightning, same pcb, same cooler. The differences are in the bios (which can be flashed), & possibly the voltage controller.
This would still be the thread for him to ask questions, etc. The card is closer to a lightning than anything else.

The actual Lightnings have all but disappeared. You can try flashing one of the original bios' in the OP to the card, & if it gives you voltage control (afterburner 2.2.3, not sure if any newer versions support V control yet), it may as well be a lightning. The only difference would be the box it came in.

any benefit to flashing the bios to "Lightning" per se
post #6629 of 7827
The Lightning ln2 bios does have extended OCP & OVP ranges, & stops any throttling. The main difference is the voltage control for overclocking, as long as your card has the same voltage controller it would allow some control.
It is a good card as it is, doesn't hurt to run it as it came & maybe try flashing when you just want to try getting more out of it. Be sure to save the original bios that is on it before flashing as well if you do!

The voltage controller is trough software? If you flash the ln2 bios on the Power Edition 680, with the same as the Lightning, you enable the voltage controller?

Besides is it possible to flash the standard bios on the Power Edition (or the Lightning also) with the unlocked standard bios that came with the first batch of Lightnings? Where can i download that bios?
