Well, if I haven't missed anything, it doesn't seem like running my Lightning on pcie 3.0 will increase its OC capability beyond 70 MHz. Guess I was unfortunate then.

Since MSI isnt cherrypicking gpus, its all about luck. You should benefit a little by the extra hidden voltage in the lightning, but you never know if its a good clocker or not.

Heck no they aren't. That I'm sure of.

Have you tested it on stock bios is it stable? The other one of my lightnings is unstable on stock bios, but in LN2 bios, overcloks GPU +100 MEM +450. But i run them in SLI so it really doesn`t matter. Funny thing i noticed, that it`s also missing one pin on the other power connector.

Anyone see the new GTX 770 Lightning that's coming out that appears to essentially be a 680 Lightning?

Well, it looks like those gpus are actually cherry picked at least by Nvidia. It probably also uses faster memory. Other than that I'm sure that its essentially the same card.

Unfortunately, 70 MHZ is on LN2 bios. :S

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.
Anyone?

May not hurt to try, I got about the same overclock with both bios' though. I stick with the 3A bios for the driver recovery.
When the driver crashes with 3A it can recover to desktop, when the driver crashes with F8, you get a blackscreen & have to reboot.
