with that being clear ... what do you say biggrin.gif ?

I'd still go for the 4GB cards. I mean, why risk bottlenecking on VRAM?

Haha, I'm planning to. Ordered a 7970 Lightning but I want to see what kind of clocks I can get it to (the 7970) before I send this bag of garbage back.

Performance shouldn't be drastically different, 4gb will just give you more image quality (MSAA takes up a lot of VRAM.)

Cool , NICE CATCH LOL

Yeah that is the thing... I mean will 3 cards have the GPU grunt to take advantage of things like MSAA or might that extra VRAM be wasted ...

if it is enough gpu grunt 4gb would be a smarter choice ...

but if not then Lightning would be ...

and WOW in the EVGA forums there is talk that to get past 1.3v SOLDERING IS NEEDED , I MEAN FOR REAL!!!!!!!!

I am happy to pay $800 a card for AMAZING but that is NOT even amazing LOL ...

Unwinder has already said that even if he gets it to work (the voltage control) it might not work without problems :|.

Get 3 Classifieds for bragging rights or 3 FTW for a reasonable price tongue.gif.

50%? That's awesome. I'm going to look up some info on those, since I never really looked into them before. What temp can you hit with 100% fan speed? And what would the ambient temp be for that run?

that rocks, ok so waiting and money for bragging rights

or get right to it at a "reasonable cost"


and now back to the main and often distracted from point of this thread LIGHTNING ....

I have personally tested 8 Lightnings 1 did 1360 with LN2 but only 375 memory OC

ONE WAS HORRID and would not get 1250 core period!!! LN2 or not!

the rest were between 1295 and 1320 or 1325 core and right around 500-525 memory .... most RIGHT around that 1300 core this is ALL with LN2 BIOS

that is all with 100% fan speed in a room that was about 70F smile.gif

and good call on Unwinder mentioning that voltage control might not be perfect ... and with the classies having issues with voltage control "current limit cough cough" it REALLY seems Kepler was not meant for the role it is in LOL

But the Lightings DO look BAD ASS and have GREAT COOLERS as I never got beyond 60C or so in ANY testing LOL
