I've used SLi several times. I currently use a machine with dual 670s a few times a week. Shocker, I don't list machines I don't personally own.
Exactly what experience do you have? Based on your logic that users have only used hardware listed in their sig rigs, you've never even touched a nvidia card, yet alone two or more in SLi. Yes, I know how incredibly stupid that sounds, that is exactly the point.

Microstutter still very much exists. Improvement is not elimination.

Prove to me that every single reference 680 is capable of running at stock lightning clocks without issue. I don't need to prove common sense.

Now, with that all said, please educate me, oh great one. How does using a 60hz panel magically eliminate microstutter? How does a 120hz panel magically transform into a 60hz panel? How does any of that have anything to do with frame limiters? Oh that's right, it doesn't. There are no magical work arounds for microstutter, there are only ways to lessen its severity at the expense of responsiveness.

It's cool and all that you have conviction in your opinions, but they're just that, nothing more. Quit making presumptions about other users, and if you want proof, be prepared to first provide some of your own.

i was under the impression that Nvidia cards had very little microstutter in SLI. Way less then AMD cards. Im pretty sure that microstutter gets worse for each additional card you add also. like 3 and 4

The most i would personally use is 2 cards but i don't because you lose some of your OC for each additional card you add also and i try to get the most out of my money and single card overclocking does that for me.

I don't think at any point i would ever SLI. i like powerful single chip cards.
780 is looking pretty sweet but its just not enough of a gain from a 680LE so im just gonna skip to the 880

Is anyone having problems with the new 320.18 driver? I always like having the newest driver but ive heard lots of horror stories on this driver.

I'd be surprised if the 680L unlocked BIOS didn't improve the 770L. The other way around, not so much.

Shouldn't we change the name of this thread to the [Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning and 770 Lightning Owners Club? Might as well invite the 770-L users, since it is essentially the same card.

As far as i know only beta 9
and 2.2.3 voltage controllers actually work correctly
The other version do nothing to your voltage

Yes, it sounds like his voltages are no longer being applied. But the AB profile edit on page one of this thread will unlock the voltage sliders on every version of AB from 2.2.3. Beta 9 was special only because it didn't need the edit.

hey guys,
got a question for you.
I have a 680 lightning now for a year and I am thinking of watercooling it. i already have a cpu loop.
I have a 200mm rad and a 240mm rad will this be enough for a i5 3570k and the 680?
If yes what block would you recommend? already seen the aqua computer and EK.
Thanks!

All the 680 Lightnings boost to 1202 on the ln2 bios at stock.
But then the Titan overclocks too, unless putting a golden 780 up against a dog of a Titan, the 780 isn't going to beat the Titan in the hands of an overclocker.

The "real" question is the Titan worth the $500 price over the 780? Performance/ dollar not looking too good with the Titan but the argument for the extra vram come in play too. What ever I guess...

I run 2 Lightnings OCed @ 1350/7000 1.35v and a 2600k @ 4.8 1.4v with 240mm and 200mm rads. Check out my pics... I have a very similar setup as yours but I am doing a push/pull on the 200mm. I am going to get better 200mm fans because the stock fans for the 600t are horrible.
