Hello.

How much do you want for the waterblock for the gtx 680 lightning.
post #7682 of 7827
Hey all,

I've tried to OC my card in the past, I failed with stability issues and ended up just running stock. Being deployed I hadn't the time to really understand and resolve the issues, hopefully an RMA wasn't required. Anyway, I have the time to once again attempt OC this card with at least mild success. Could someone fill me in on a few things to get started?

What LN2 bios should I use? I still have the 80:04:28:00:3A , which I downloaded last year...hopefully that wasnt the issue.

Which Driver and MSI AB should I run? Currently driver 314.07, and non profiled mod 2.3.1 AB.

SYSTEM
Win7
i7 3770k stable oc 4.5ghz
stock gpu cool, cpu liquid
p8z77vpro mb

Thanks for any info!

Should be all good. Good luck.

Thanks man!
Yep got LN2 80.04.28.00.3A, beta 18 msi and driver ver. 335.23

Running into some issues but working @ it! This seems like some really good advice from early in this thread..so I'm working up from here!

Here is how to do it. First, set aux at -100mv, mem at -50mv, and core at +0mv. Now you're ready to start. Try a modest OC like core +0mhz and mem +250mhz. If that's OK, bring up the core freq first, to like 20, 50, 70, etc, and increase core voltage a little at a time as you go, like +25mv, then +37mv, etc. Leave aux and mem voltage alone for now.

You will probably not need to increase aux above -100, or mem above -50, but stock voltage on mem is not unusual. You should be able to reach a nice OC of +300 to +600 mhz mem using -50 mv or stock mem voltage, and +40 to +80 mhz core using +25 to +50 mv core voltage.

Once you dial that in, you are ready to go for benchmarks, using higher core freqs and voltages.

Still no 780TI Lightning on the horizon =(

To be honest the LN2 BIOS is too good to go with other vendors. I like my clock speeds locked in during 3D apps. I noticed I always had no performance problems where as other 680 owners get wild clock speed variations that have a negative effect on performance. It probably helps me with 120fps @ 120hz in the games I play.

There won't be any 780Ti lightning, they made a dozen for LN2 event, but it will not be released for public.
If you are looking for the equivalent in OC potential to a lightning with 780Ti chip, take a look at EVGA with the classified. thumb.gif

i still see them going from 300-350 if you can find one below 300 i would say its a good buy.

Hi, I have a 680 lightning and considering upgrading to sli for folding purposes. Given they are now harder to come by, do I have any options other than hunting down another 680 lightning?
