[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 698

post #6971 of 7827
Hello there
1. Don't use GPU-Z, he doesn't know this card.
2. At stock, your native clock is 1110Mhz, and in games boosts to 1202Mhz
3.Unigine valley and heaven reports wrong, the GPU core clock
4.Only afterburner 2.2.3 and 3.0.0 beta 8 and beta 9 has unlocked voltage control, it works for both normal and F8 (3A) bios. If you want to use other versions and have unlocked voltage control, you need to make some config tweaks into afterburner
5. People say that the real voltage measured by multimeter is about 40-50mV higher of what afterburner shows.
6. It's normal after reboot to show in afterburner different voltage, as you said, 81,and after reboot is 74mV, etc. I dunno the reason, i think it's some kind of driver and afterburner bug. Also, you can do increments of GPU core only in 13mhz increments, so, +13Mhz, then +27Mhz, etc.
If you want to have after reboot for example 81mV, and to not change anymore, you need to set in Afterburner 81mV then to get into Afterburner folder, then into Profiles folder, and you will find one (or two) long file cfg names, open those, see if core voltage is set to =81, then close the windows, then set the config file to read only, and after reboot it will have 81mV all the time, even if afterburner still displays smaller voltage into his window.

And for stability don't use unigine heaven, cuz that one is kinda broken, it needs higher voltages to don't crash, use 3d mark programs, unigine valley, and games, play games for some time, and if you see it crashes, put more volts, or reduce the OC.

PS: The stock 680 comes with 1000Mhz, the lightning comes with 1110Mhz and it boosts to 1202, so is very much overclocked by default, don't use some extra OC, because it will bring you very high temps and it will not make in games a difference for, say +50mhz more.

Overclock only the memory voltage, you should bring +350Mhz from the start with no problems, above that it's kinda useless.

Hope it helps !

Pointless without OC results imo. The only point of a Lightning edition card is OC headroom lol...

Will anyone get a 770 lightning and flash it to 680? Or vice versa? Because I'm considering getting one for SLI with my current 680 lightning.
post #6975 of 7827
680 can be flashed to 770, so I suppose the same for viceversa...
As used 680 Lighting are too expensive, I'll wait for 770 Lightning to lower price.
770 SLI are awesome, 770 LIghting will be more; and... unlocked 680 Lightning SLI?
post #6976 of 7827
Any idea whether 680 Lightning water blocks will work with the 770 Lightning? Might actually be able to sell my two unopened blocks if they do.

It has a default 1202mhz boost clock. I had two power editions that couldn't even hit that without the LN2 bios. You can sure bet that the 770 overclocks better on average. My current lightning doesn't do much past 1250mhz on the LN2 bios.

It also has significantly higher memory clocks, I'm sure that there is headroom on top of that too.

I'm sure that it will. I would send a message to EK. I'm sure that they know for sure. They usually respond pretty quickly.

My 680 has the exact same boost clock.
Sure your results may vary but I want the juicy details regarding voltage control. For example they sell it with the locked BIOS but hint that the card has the hardware capability for voltage control if the BIOS is modded, etc.

I would like the 770L to OC better than the 680L but I simply want to see some results first and was hoping the review would provide a glimpse of that =P

Seems the 770L is physically identical to the 680L, but with a new BIOS and possibly better binned die. Can't find anyone definitely saying this but that's what it seems like.

I kinda feel bad for everyone that is buying the 770. They're pretty much getting what 680 owners have had for a year at more or less the same price. I'm waiting for a 780L before I consider upgrading.

I was thinking about this. With with a bit more voltage and the Lightning cooler the 780 overclocked should top most maxed out titans for a lot cheaper. I feel like the Lightning cooler is not praised enough, the thing is bloody amazing. With a pretty conservative fan profile I rarely top 54c in my games (LN2 stock voltage but still)

I can see the temps sky-rocketing after a certain voltage range though, it's a pretty big chip.

But anyway, I don't play anything that even comes close to maxing my 680L
