I see you got ASUS Rampage, Kimir, why do you like lightning instead of ASUS Matrix or DCII TOP? biggrin.gif looks nice if you have ASUS mobo & ASUS card.
Perhaps lightning card is more tempting for you biggrin.gif

Lightning is the undisputed 680GTX king. It's the only software voltage unlocked 680gtx capable of reaching 1.4v+ with no hardware mods.

Cooler aesthetics don't matter once you put a waterblock on the card.

In matter of fact, I had Asus cards before, 2x GTX580 Matrix, both went bad and got replacement at shop expense. I had the choice between multiple 680, the MSI was the best pick for OC and I didn't wanted Asus card no more.
Seriously I'm almost at 1500 without hardware mode on benchs

So I've just finished OC'in using unigine valley.

I've got stable clocks at:
+100mV, for voltage
300% power limit,
+160MHz Core clock
+450MHz Memory clock

with a max temperature of around 70 degrees celcius. This however, is at an ambient room temp of only about 20 degrees C, and I live in Australia so summer temps can get up to 40.

My question is: If I have a low gpu temp, will it be considered a safe overclock for daily use? And if not, how much should I downclock to get a safe daily use that I could expect 4 years or so of life in my gpu for?

I was thinking around
+50MV
200% power
+120MHz Core
+350MHz Mem

for a daily, is that reasonable considering my benchmark max?

I think the fans die b4 the components on the pcb.

I think it's the same in the end smile.gif once you start to overclock, the risk is ofcourse impact in lifetime unit/components ... no one can determine how long it will last, but at least with TOP supported components such as in lightning series I guess the impact will not degrade to soon like reference model does smile.gif

I'm actually half glad to hear that, so that I don't have to clock it down too much!
Thanks


Hey also another question, do the other voltages give much more performance? Are they worth tinkering with? (memory voltage, aux voltage?)

Honestly bro, you decide. Nobody can tell you how much reduction in card lifespan you get from OC.

On air I do +50mv on the GPU daily. Memory clocks are the same as max oc, no point lowering this if you're not using voltage control on the memory (memory voltage does nothing for my memory OC). Plus keplers love high memory speeds.

I'm putting it under water as soon as I receive a shipment from FCPU then I will run it +100mv daily because:

high heat + high voltage = bad
high heat + low voltage = ok
low heat + high voltage = ok
