yeah right now i also have push pull on the 200mm rad, with both stock fans. may i ask what block you have on the gpu? and would the mx4 be a good paste for the gpu?

back to AB 3 beta 9, everything run smooth. however I've got this message/warning whenever i open the AB 3beta9 where it says," Warning! This version expires on Wednesday, June 05, 2013, 10:00:31!"
does anyone have this kind of message/warning?and if it expires that means I wont be able to use it after that day? thanks

The Titan is 350 over the price of a 780.

For that 350 you're getting the ability to 4-Way SLI, 3GB more of VRAM, 2 more SMX cores...384 more Cuda Cores, and the ability of Double Precision.

I'm about to buy a 770 Lightning; will I be able to SLI with my actual 680L if I flash same bios for both? Thanks

That extra vram and more cores are why the Titan OCs like a dog. And due to diminishing returns in scaling, 4-way SLI gives a horrible RoI. None of these "features" is worth a dime to me, much less $350.

I haven't heard of anyone doing this yet, so unless someone here has had this experience and can tell us how it went, all you are going to get are educated guesses (and uneducated guesses). FWIW, mine is that it will work, especially if you can find a BIOS that works nicely on both of them.

Another guess is that down-dating with the 680L's unlocked LN2 BIOS would be better than up-dating with the 770L BIOS. Do let us know how it goes. I have a selfish interest here: I was set to get a second 680L for SLI but I couldn't find one. If the 770L works with the 680L in SLI, I'll be quite pleased.

Till someone does it I'm going to say no. nVidia is treating the 770 as a different GPU from the 680. If you want to flash your 680L with the 770L BIOS and see if it can be "unlocked" good luck too you

Burden of more. Either ways that's a reason to keep a 350 dollar price gap between the two, allowing nVidia to have a price gap filer between the Titan and the older 680, Won't shock me since the GTX 770 is a MSRP of 399.99 that we might see a GTX 775 to fill in the gap between the GTX 780 649.99 and the GTX 770 399.99.

set at 1400 / 7000 both cards in AB 3.0 beta 10 with the config. edit for voltage control (set at +80mV core, +0 mem and +0 aux)

It appears maybe the new 770 lightnings are really 680 lightnings with some of the oci'ng pre-done on them?

They are basically the same card, as long as the core is identified as the same & the memory controller is the same (to work properly when flashed from one to the other) sli should work.

I haven't really seen that 780s OC a lot better, looks like most are doing low to mid 1200s on the core overclocked, not exactly blowing Titan away. I do have to agree with 4 way sli, scaling is bad enough that it is almost a waste of a card.
The extra bit of performance in the Titan wouldn't be worth the $350 difference to most, but it is to some.

Pretty much, just upgraded memory. Many 680s couldn't do much more than 1750Mhz mem overclocked, 770 starts there & overclocks . The guys who do have 680L that hit 2000Mhz memory basically have 770 Lightnings.
