I did this originally. I got to +60 core with mem stock and then pushed mem to 450 which crashed. I backed it down to 400 (which passed the test as I was stepping up to 450) and now I can't even get +50/+300 to pass anymore. *** mad.gif

I gotta wonder why he hangs around the lightning thread talking smack about it constantly. Obviously not every windforce will OC to high levels, looking at newegg reviews most people couldn't get past 1250. Anyway, freaking gigabyte employees! They're the worst! (just kidding buddy)

Get over your pathetic overly defensive selfs, I made a simple comment that there is no way I would pay 600.00 for a card that I couldnt overclock "and I doubt any of you would either" I then mentioned that lots of other lightning cards are great overclockers and you guys have a hissy over that? pffft..... get over yourselfs. Im not here talking smack about the lightnings xoleras, thats pretty low of you to say.

My comment was about his card in general, not every single lightning. rolleyes.gif And yes, I realize I got a good card and obviously not all windforce 680's will reach the same clocks as mine, I never stated otherwise.

Absolutely the truth. That's why I bought a Lightning rather than a certain other card that wasn't always stable at stock. The Lightning is a wonderful card and I can't say enough good things about it. It Maxes BF3 at stock and stays quieter than my NH-D14. Anything over stock is just a bonus and while it always nice to get something extra, I wasn't getting my hopes up cause I have garbage luck. biggrin.gif

You spend 10 posts talking about how the DC2 cooler blows everything away (then you sell it ) and now you're talking up the gigabyte. Its just humorous seeing you post more than most lightning owners here, i'm just amused thumb.gif I usually don't spend an ounce of time in owner threads for cards I don't have, thats just me though. Whatever dude, you spend more time here than lightning owners, i'm not saying anything is wrong with that.

I think kepler is just a pain for overclocking compared to previous cards or even the 7970, practically every 680 on the market you will find reports everywhere of bad overclocks. This includes the classified, lightning, windforce, whatever, you will find a report on newegg or some forum saying that their card doens't OC well. There is no consistency thanks to nvidia saying **** you to overclocks and implementing voltage control.

I miss the 580 days of simple overclocking. Hell even the 7970 is a cinch to overclock...when I had 7970s I oc'ed both of mine 250mhz easy peasy. Apparently with the 680 you have to pay a premium for a good overclock and even then it isn't guaranteed.

BTW the newegg reviews on the windforce, most of them aren't getting past 1250. Just par for the course, it is odd that users are registering today to post their overclocking experience without any validation screenshots. Whatever, anyway don't think your card is an exception wink.gif Anyway, if nvidia does this garbage again with GK110 I may just go with the 8970 or whatever. The 7970s overclocked like crazy and it was definitely easier and MORE CONSISTENT than the 680. (I say this after using both) The 680s are just a pain and annoying to get consistent OCs with. In contrast to every 7970 I had which hit 1200 with ease....no questions no problems, no voltage control.

You would be paying $600 for a chance at a great overclocker. Lightnings may have a better chance of hitting over 1300mhz, but at the same time many still won't, as with any card. It's just hard to see your point when you compare a single Lightning card vs. a single Windforce, since that doesn't really make sense with the 'lottery' and all redface.gif

No I do understand it but for a card such as a lightning which the selling point is pretty much its overclocking ability "plastered all over the box" I think its a legitimate thing to be upset about, some of you are pretty dillusional around here.

I never said I wouldnt, even though I only needed to dish out $499.99 for one. wink.gif Your missing my point, if he cant oveclock that card AT ALL then its crap, especially at that cost.
