Are ones that clock past 1300mhz rare? Because no two cards are the same and in my case i own two of them that justify that claim.

That's about 1308 average, and that's right at what I can run mine at in SLI. I get 23,500+ graphics score in 3DMark 11 and over 119 fps in Heaven 3 limping along at these clocks.

All of the first 10 or so owners registered in this thread had at least 1305mhz core. I had 2 that did myself. But with more and more people coming in here, we are starting to see that this isn't the super card we all thought. Many are topping out around 1250mhz. If you're going to RMA and hope for a card better than 1282mhz...I'd say you have a 50/50 chance. So...you gotta ask yourself one question...do you feel lucky? biggrin.gif

Yeah, thinking about just returning it and buying a pair of 670 or something, I dont know :|. Paid a pretty hefty price not to be able to do anything with it :/.

Update: I received a call from Newegg about my Lightning, and they asked me a few questions, about my RMA, and they offered me $50 off the card for the "missing advertised features". Well, I went ahead and cancelled the order on my Zotac 670, and decided to keep the Lightning. I've only paid $559 in the first place for it, so this ends up costing me as much as a reference at $509. I am still furious about the voltage MSI, but I am tired off sending malfunctioning cards back, and dealing with RMA's. In the end, even if gets no voltage, I am glad I have a working card, that runs extremely well.

So, I am sticking around....

Nice. Calling newegg to get something similar, I love the card but i'm pissed that software voltage isn't in place yet. Like you said it is a major selling point and all of these high 1270ish overclocks would be much higher with more voltage.

Lets see if they can do something similar for me! I won't reference you or say that I heard this on the internet of course wink.gif

Basically, MSI needs to learn their lesson for advertising this feature without proper implementation. Maybe they will feel the sting if newegg has to issue tons of 50$ credits.

Strange change of opinion... I knew you'd come around tongue.gif

Hmm, I dunno! I was always pissed about the voltage issue, trust me. I'm just happy with the cards as they are, they clock really high for me without additional voltage. I've always enjoyed lightning cards, I had 580 lightnings last year as well that I loved. That being said, I recognize that MSI didn't implement a promised feature yet and that is somewhat aggravating to me.
