And the problem is that there is only reference coolers out on 780's right now with the 1 EVGA exception of course. Sure the Reference coolers look bad ass but im sure any cooler anyone makes for them will be better cooling.

And the 780 actually performs better then a Titan because they overclock so much better with compute disabled. They should have never marketed the Titan as a gaming card/dev card. It should have been a Entry level Dev card only. Because the $1000 price for basically a Tesla is amazing. But $1000 for that performance in gaming is a rip off.

The 780 *should* OC better than the Titan, since it has less memory and occupies less of the chip. I haven't seen any evidence of that, but it's what I'd expect. A 780 Lightning is something I would look into. But I'll definitely wait for Max unless a 780L comes out. Even then, I might still wait.

In the first post of this thread, near the end is a section "Tweaking Afterburner 2.2.4"
The cfg edit there works for all versions after 2.2.3

OC to 1228 @ only 1.2v !!!!!! 23% is pretty good for refrence cooler Hopefully MSI has that lightning edition ready to go

Unboxing and good info on the card

I'm actually really hoping for a shroud change in the 780 LE card because im getting sick of the same old look of twin frozer

Also, removing the GPU reactor and its cover (useless, unless you are seriously overvolting) helped with air flow over (possibly through?) the card.

My current 24/7 config (unlocked LN2):
Core: +25mv
Mem: -50mv
Aux: -100mv
Core: +56mhz
Mem: +600mhz

Works nicely and stays cool enough for my conservative tastes. This card has to last until Maxwell, and I use it very hard every day. I am not impressed with Titan (a Cadillac marketed as a Ferrari) or the 780 (even less interesting).

All bets are off if MSI releases a 780 Lightning, however smile.gif

edit: typo


Well, first, i don't want to use the LN2 bios, because it gets a little more hotter with LN2. And second, if i put and OC of 50Mhz on core clock (that is the maximum i can reach with nice temps and not crazy voltages) i don't think 50mhz more will impact in games fps, maybe 1-2 fps more. I OC only the memory to +350Mhz. And third MSI has again locked the voltage tweaking on AB beta 10, only beta 8 and 9 has unlocked voltage.

So stupid think by nvidia to lock these Kepler chips, why because that degradation, well every component degrades overtime if using overclock, or not overclock. And i don't know why MSI did that nvidia wanted to lock the voltages, these Lightning cards are made by their PCB components to be overclocked even higher. Don't forget, 680 Lightning cards are already overclocked by default with 100Mhz and possible more, so there isn't alot of headroom to clock further and still able to get nice temps in games, to not throttle down. And i got a very bad chip, i saw people able to get 1300mhz on very low voltages, i can't pass 1280mhz even on LN2 bios with max voltages.

Well I've officially been waiting an entire month for a working card from MSI RMA. frown.gif

The lightning is a beautiful card, but I've gotta say this has eroded my confidence in MSI.

MSI was basically told by Nvidia that they have to adhere to the green light program or face consequences. MSI wanted to keep the unlocked voltage going, but they are a business & have to consider supply.

Agreed. As much as I like MSI, sending a dead card as an RMA replacement is just full of fail. At least for the QC department.

My second RMA status has been sitting on "processing" for a week now.

The guy (or gal?) who issued me my second RMA wrote "[Return Label] *2nd RMA PROCESS EXPRESS SERVICE ONCE RECEIVED REPLACE CARD AND SHIP BACK FULLY TEST AND MAKE SURE IS IN GOOD CONDITION* HH" on both the online form, and on the shipping label.

Somehow I don't think it a week with no results qualifies as "express service", unless they are getting hung on the "fully test and make sure is in good condition" part. Perhaps they've simply run out of working 680 Lightnings? I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that is in fact the case, and not that they are simply being lazy and negligent.

I also sent them an email saying as much, so hopefully they catch my drift. I can't say I'd entirely object to a 770 Lightning, or a reference 780 as a replacement, if they can't source a working 680 lightning wink.gif

Lets just call it compensation for lost time, eh MSI? *crosses fingers*

Well, sad thing nvidia is making this, i hope when i will buy a GTX 880 Lightning, it will have unlocked voltage and nvidia will not say anything. I will stay with this card, the 780 doesn't worth the money, new fresh things will come on 8 series nvidia, this 7 series, 780 is just a small titan, and the titan is just a small tesla.

Hi all, new here.

Got my 680 Lightning today, running the F8 unlocked bios from the OP. I'm having trouble with the Core Clocks, I have no idea what I'm clocking to. GPU-Z states my default clocks are 1202 GPU and 1059(!) Boost. Is this weird having the boost clock so much lower?

Overclocking seems to result in different results everywhere. A 1184MHz Boost in GPU-Z results in a reported 1320MHz boost in Afterburner, while Unigine Valley reports 1327MHz. I have no idea which one of these (if any) is right, so really struggling to know where I'm at.

Also, afterburner lowers the voltage everytime it launches. If I set to +81mV, for example, next time it launches it'll be 74mV. After that it'll be 68mV and so on. Anyone know why this is? I'm using 2.2.3.
