[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 689

post #6881 of 7827
So, just seeing from the 3dmark11 scores of the gtx 780, which was P12100 at stock, could I say a 680 lightning fairly overclocked (around 1400) is just behind it in 1080p gaming.

Also back to my original question when i subbed:

Is it safe to max memory and aux voltages?

Non-reference PCBs can still be voltage locked by nvidia, it's easy enough to get full voltage control (warranty goes bye-bye though). A PCB that can handle the extra voltage without replacing the VRMs would be nice.

It should be reasonably safe, but max memory & aux. voltage doesn't usually make anything better though. Some guys have had better luck overclocking when undervolting the auxiliary, & memory ICs can really dislike too much voltage.
Best to ramp up the voltages & test as you go.

Not worth the upgrade/ sidegrade for me...both of my Lightnings get 12k in 3dmark by themselves. But it would be a good upgrade for 580 owners.

On a more serious note, just stick some black electrical tape over them, under the backplate.

Does pcie 3.0 benefit your graphics card significanly?

I'm running my Lightning on pcie 2.0; I can't seem to overclock it past +70 MHz and wondered whether this could be the problem.

Yeah, I was considering this route. How unfortunate.

Hey guys, i've had a GTX 680 Lightning for a while but never really overclocked it. Now im starting to look into this stuff and just wanted to clarify something about my bios version. Im running a 80.04.28.00.3A (unlocked LN2). Should I flash it to 80.04.09.00.F8 (unlocked LN2)? Also could anything go wrong during flashing? Thanks.
