[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 682

post #6811 of 7827
Tough decision, but I'm saying farewell to my Lightnings. Moving on to some 780s or Titans. Aquacomputer blocks that I never got a chance to even use are already up on ebay. Cards to follow.

What's people's opinion on max temps ? Currently keeping them under 70 since I know that's where standard cards throttle. Want to push my OC a bit more, but if adding more temp to the core will hurt the cards in the long term, I'm not too bothered !

On water I couldnt get mine over 40c if I tried. It's a pretty cool running card, even overclocked. No clue on air.

I would say that with Kepler you need to worry about Electromigration from over volting rather then damage from temps. I'm sure the card could handle mid 80's for daily gaming and stuff but to even make the lightning get mid 80's you either gotta have the poorest case cooling ever or have it way over volted. Personally i would not go over 1.4v for daily even on water.

My case may have the worse case cooling known to man ! Nice to know I have a little bit more headroom, well before I put them under water wink.gif

well remember that your card probably can never be cooler then your room temp. Most people keep their rooms at 68-70c. My card has never gone above 73c

You'd be dead at that temperature.

So its kind of unusual that I keep my room between 20-25c, or did you mean Fahrenheit?
