I just use 2.2.3 and you don't need to do the voltage hack it just works. I wouldn't go above the +93mv it will let you go for daily. that should let you go to between 1350 and 1400 core clock.

MSI will still give you warranty as long as you stay within the parameters of the default program settings of afterburner. This is why many people use 2.2.3 because you don't need to hack it for a decent OC.

If your looking to bench high like past 1400 ish you do need to use the hack to get more voltage.
I would say whatever you can get to on +100 or less mv would be a good daily.

Managed to get my hands on an N680GTX Lightning card as well, however, I'm quite disappointed


BIOS #1 -> it barely manages to run stock without a crash @1201.9/1502.3 MHz clock speeds. 1215:1620 is not stable for the most part. Crysis2 crashes after a while, folding at home stops after a few minutes. (stock voltage, which is measured under load at roughly 1.22-1.23v)

BIOS#2 -> nVidia 320.00 + Afterburner 3.0.0b9 (+settings edit) max clock speeds for VALLEY 1267MHz at 1.300v (measured) and 1293MHz at 1.348v measured..

That's pretty darn ****ty to me^^

that is bad. i'm only running 1.31v and i'm at 1405 core 7800 mem. totally stable in anything
im using 2.2.3 and 314.22 driver. i'll update the driver tonight to the new beta one and nothing will change though.

That's the thing though. At +93mv I am getting barely 1300mhz. Which is a bit disappointing but fine for daily. I would like to do some benches though at higher speeds.

The 780 is planned to be gk110, a cut down Titan. The rest of the lineup will be refreshed.

Custom PCB & coolers are supposed to be good to go for the 780s, I'm hoping to see a 780 Lightning.

Since they can't really be found available new anymore, wonder if some of these later 680s turning up were RMA returns that went back for poor overclocking & made a comeback later after testing for stock. Still looking better than average 680s but pretty low compared to what most were getting early on.

You aren't alone, two of the four power editions that I've had are like that. The third isn't much better. Supermi had a few of these too, with similar results.

I had MANY classifieds and Lightnings just like that!!! Only a few of the MANY read more than 20 I tried were actually good overclockers. Gone through 4 titans so far as well, not great overclockers either ... defeated by the grinch of overclocking with kepler LOL

So I just got done with My OC and heres what I got:
Core: 1306Mhz
Volts: ~1.3v (this is the highest I have been able to go with 3A Bios and AB 2.2.3)
Memory: 7484Mhz
Temps under load: ~38C
Heaven Score: 1072

While the core didnt clock all that great, the memory did.

Same here, I believe with better power delivery and less memory on card it would over clock much better, the 6gb of ram is hogging the TDP. I could be wrong but same core with 3gb ram and better vrm's could be more over clocker friendly

At +63 mV (+155 core clock, +600 memory) with the unlocked LN2 bios I hit 55C max, and that is in furmark. In intensive games like crysis 3 I see it barely hitting 50C, and in games like dota 2 it stays at 38C. I got a triple and a double rad tho biggrin.gif.
