[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 704

post #7031 of 7827
sorry to jump in your thread guys!

i got a windforce 3 770 yesterday and today is dead


it was astonishingly silent!

i been contemplating getting the Lightning due to their reputation!

how silent is the cooler? (for example the windforce was nearly dead silent at 50%...and kept the card under 65 degrees @1300)

i might pull the trigger today or tomorrow

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

Very nice...I get around 94FPS in Valley. My cards will do around 1380/7000, any higher and I have to give it a lot of volts. One of my cards will actually hit 1500 on the core with some serious volts:) Don't have the extreme cooling to bench it there though.

Have you seen any benchmarks at those sort of clocks?

Thats true, its usually best to ignore people complaining that can't come up with any specific examples.

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've never heard that. There are methods to measure microstutter. I would be interested to see FCAT measurements in tri-sli. I haven't heard any complaints.

I've been using it without issue. If you listen to all of the complainers at guru3d and Nvidia forums that for all you know have been having issues beforehand you'll never update your drivers.

Then again there isn't a need to update the driver unless you're playing something new like Metro last light. This driver helped a lot in Tomb Raider for me.

Pretty much you get really good scaling with a second card (like 90% on well supported titles), then adding a third card it tends to drop a lot.

Realistically with a Titan, you get 3gb more VRAM (compared to a 780), which really is of limited value, save for high resolution mods on Skyrim and maybe if have a multi-monitor setup. I wonder what the average Titan OCs are. Perhaps ~1150 MHz? I mean, if "Titan Lightning" came out, we could see perhaps ~1,300 MHz seeing that the PCB is also a bottleneck for OCing on the Titan, but due to Nvidia's policies ... mad.gif

What modules do these 770 Lightnings have? I can't remember the 680s, but the 7970 Lightnings carried H5GQ2H24MFR-R0C rated for 1500 MHz. How good are the memory clocks that people have been getting?

If people are frequently getting 1,400 MHz Core and 2,000 MHz RAM, this will be awesome.

Thats not really all that true. You're just more likely to run into cpu limitations with three cards. In gpu limited games or when using SSAA like I like to do a third card tends to scale very well.

Here is a good forum review on GTX 680 tri-sli scaling with realistic settings that I would actually use.

At the end, I ordered another 680L to SLI with mine, I can't risk the 770L not to be compatible.
I found some on ebay.it @ €437; 770L costs €458; I'll eventually try 770L bios flashing when I'll be sure...
EDIT: will a Seasonic M12D 850W will be enough for my SLI+3570k and some overclock?
