Interesting point.

I didn't think the 6gb of vram possibly could hinder the overclock as how it does on ram size on cpus.

Question:

I just purchased one of these cards from a local retailer, Bios version is 80.04.47.00.18

I noticed in the Original post that it says non-LN2

Does this mean my voltage is locked and I do not have a LN2 Bios option?

If you have a 680 lightning then you have an LN2 option. It probably won't be a true LN2 though. Check out page 1 of this thread to go about fixing that.

The hard limits that include fan power & the works are pretty new with the titan, the amount of memory may well make some difference.
Being more into benching than gaming I have pretty much always gone with the lower vram amount cards when possible, power aside less memory usually has a bit lower latency.

Good overclocking! What sorta clocks you get with +93 voltage? Im getting a 200mm and double 140 rad next month hoping to get similar temps like you and others!

At +100 mV ( my slider will stay at that tongue.gif) I can hit +230 core. I really don't need to touch the memory voltage to get +1000 mem.

That is very nice for memory clocks!

Sweet Jesus I wish I could get results like that out of my card. I was running mine at +130mhz with +100mV on the core for a while but I was getting some wild graphic glitches in Skyrim so I had to back off to +100mhz. Pushing the memory to +600 with mem and aux voltage at +0 is the best stable gaming I can get. All this on water as well, I guess some of us aren't as lucky with binning! thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

After reading through this forum I was unable to get a general consensus about whether down volting the aux and/or memory is better or not than upping the voltage. Some people pump up the mem volts and some not. Could anybody possibly elaborate on this for me? Or is it one of those "what kind of attitude does you card have" things?

I believe it depends on what kind of cooling you are using, the colder your card is the more voltage you can use, I was using a chiller and for some benchmarks an increase in aux voltage allowed for lower voltage on memory with a slight increase in memory frequency, every card reacts differently and every driver and or program, either game or benchmark is different, it really takes a lot of experimentation. For benchmarking you may want to take the card to the edge of stability, for everyday use and gaming I always recommend and use default settings, I don't mind crashes during benching but not during normal use, if I can't get the fps to run a game smooth an upgrade is in order. Just my opinion though
