Is the only way to get more then +93 mv to do the memory hack on afterburner or is there another way

Use gpu-z latest version to save the bios, open gpu-z & click the green emblem beside the bios version to save.
Mostly in case you ever need to flash it back, if you save it, it is there if you need it.

The Artmoney hack is the more common way, AB extreme does allow much higher voltage but it is hard to get a copy. You pretty much have to show MSI you are serious about benchmarking & have results to show that you are capable of making use of the software, then sign your warranty away to get it.
ABX is customized to each user now, so there is no sharing if someone ever wants an updated version. If one goes public, they can see exactly who leaked it, so no one leaks it anymore.

Thanks for all the help so far. Saved original bios and going to try and get LN2. 2 questions before I do.
-If I have issues with this card down the road, can I flash back and MSI will honor the warranty?
-currently im able to get about +100mhz more from the clock, 250mhz memory. Voltage is letting me get about +62, anything more on any 3, I crash. So that seems to be about the max. Will I be able to get a lot more flashing to LN2?

If you are crashing due to high temps, the ln2 bios likely won't help. Crashing due to lack of voltage, then the ln2 bios should make a difference.
The ln2 bios starts off at 1202 core after boost, so that will be the low 3d clock under load with no overclock. Overclocking will just go up from there.

With the thermal limiter gone whats the safe temp to stay under if you want your card to last a few years. some people say not to go above 70 but other cards i have had in the past lasted many many years in the 80's and 90's(gtx 580 and 480)
post #6638 of 7827
Above 70 degrees the original board GTX680 card will start to trottle, so it shouldn't pass 70. I don't know about the Lightning card, because I've never passed these degrees. Your GTX 680 Lightning card will not pass 70 in normal conditions. If it did so = you have applied too much voltage and/or have very low fan speed .

Thanks to everyone for helping me. Was able to flash bios to LN2. Was up until 4am run tests and for the life of me I couldn't break what I was already getting with the original bios. GPUz was saying default clock was higher than GPU clock. 1006 vs 1206 i think. Was hundreds of points less on Valley with LN2 than what came with it. So I flashed back

+1 for those who helped.

Let me show you what you will get if you buy a more powerful CPU. Mine is a 3930k @4.5ghz. So my physics score is a quite respectable 14712. But with a Lightning on air, my graphics score is 12051 and combined is 9914, only slightly higher than yours. Well, see the difference for yourself:



I think the conclusion here is, save your money. Maybe get a second 680L for SLI if you're not satisfied with what you've got.
