Your blowing it all out of proportion, I didnt spend even a single post claiming that the DC2 cooler blows everything away. Anyone in this forum is welcome to go back a few pages and see that for themselves. As for the gigabyte card as I mentioned earlier the price last week had dropped to $499.99 which is a heck of a good deal and I had been curious about that card anyway so I purchased it and it happens to overclock a fair bit higher than my Asus which cost a little more money so I will be returning the Asus and keeping the better overclocker of the two while saving a little $$$. What is so hard to understand about that? Who wouldnt do the same if they were able to do so?
Its just humorous seeing you post more than most lightning owners here, i'm just amused
So I have to be a lightning owner to post here? dont remember seeing the rules about that one. BTW- I post here because I love hardware and I am interested to see what the lightning can do when/if it gets voltage control. In the meantime im gonna continue to post here and talk about hardware, if you dont like what I have to say thats fine, but taking the things that I say and blowing them up to mean something that I never intended is pretty darn lame on your part.
Apparently with the 680 you have to pay a premium for a good overclock and even then it isn't guaranteed.
No, you do not. Plenty of the lesser expensive models are cracking the 1300mhz barriar, what it comes down to is the good ol chip lottery since it would seem that even some of the more expensive 680's can come with a crappy chip. I guess no one is really chip binning at all. BTW
my very first GTX 680 was a reference Model PNY which did 1325mhz core and 500+mem rock stable, that one I sold to a guy on ebay for a nice fat profit because its when the cards were first released and no one seemed to be able to keep them in stock.
Also you spoke about the HD 7970 earlier, I had one of those as well.
After the installation of the Artic cooler-
This is a hobby to me, man. Forgive me if I converse with others in this thread about the things that we love.Edited by RobsM6S - 7/19/12 at 8:16am
