Anything above 22c is pretty warm. Unless grandma is living with you. sky is the limit then

Wish this wouldn't of gotten discontinued. I was looking to pick one up. Went with the 670 P/E OC. That dust removal technology sucked me in.

Off topic, but I think Maxwell's going to be a winner. I usually go with the tick/tock release cycle. I don't like buying refreshes, personal opinion.

On topic though, does anyone know why they discontinued the lightning?

Quite a few 680's I've seen have gotten discontinued, I'd imagine its to free up chips/ push sales of the 770, purely speculation though !

Very very interested about that 770 BIOS on a 680, anyone tried it with their Lightning yet ?

I don't see the point. You would lose voltage control. On top of that its an entirely different pcb.

The spoon feeding from Nvidia this time around with the 700 series is to the point that my eyes are turning towards the Raedon 9000 series due in Dec 2013
I mean my lightning is getting +28% performance over stock. I can guarantee you now that that is going to be a chunk better then what the 780 will be.
Thing that pisses me off is that they are spoon feeding so badly now that they have divided up chips in the same series of GPU
780 will be GK110 (Basically just a slightly gimped Titan)
770 and less will still be the same 104 chip

Based on AMD's screw up with the crossfire algorithm thing forcing them to skip the 8000 series for desktop i think that they are going to step it up big time come Dec with 9000 and just blow anything Nvidia has out of the water. Kinda like how 7000 dominated for so long.... well as long as you weren't Crossfire that is.

The store that i sent my GTX 680 Lightning messaged me that they have processed my RMA and ordered me a new "compensatory product", so i guess im full of s... and i will own another lightning biggrin.gif I could have just sent the card straight to MSI but yeah it is what it is. When the new card arrives maybe i will flash the 770 bios, use silver marker and write 770 on top of the card and join the GTX 770 owners club biggrin.gif

Edit: I hope i have great luck this time and get a golden chip thumb.gif

So curiosity got the best of me and I flashed my 2 cards with that '770' BIOS. Works fine ! Cards run cooler than my LN2 bios cards did, presuming that's from the less voltage being out through the chip. Performance is about 5% more stock for stock between the BIOS'. Card is still recognised as a 680 in GPUz/AB/NCP, but the clock speed matches the screenshot on the last page.
