If you dont donate that money (to a good cause other then yourself)there is going to be a pox on your computers...its karma and fitting.wink.gif
It sucks that once all is uploaded to msi and they get the new ab out that you babys will be running 1450+
'to those guys that did not cry and held out for it to be finished,clock um if you got um.

I find your comment distasteful... the first to suggest a refund is Unwinder rolleyes.gif

I recall that we have all already paid for these features long ago... surely I am not angry with rivatuner but with msi and your bad support and communication with customers.

Come on guys stop griping, good grief! This is a moment to be happy that it is coming. Sure, MSI delivering late sucks but the past is past, what we should focus on is that it is coming for sure tongue.gif MSI was in the wrong for sure. But in the end they are going to come through so its all good now in my book, especially if newegg is doing what we discussed a few pages back.

Hold on to your pants. Rejoice when you have the fully working product in hand and some form of compensation for not returning what by law could be considered a defective product up until now.

Until then, hopeful pessimism is what they're getting from me, at best.

I woke up this morning that unwinder has voltage control working so I was happy, you guys are ruining it blinksmiley.gif

Just chill out, I for one think I woke up to good news! You made your point so that is that , we already know that MSI was in the wrong, nobody disagrees with you! It sucks that it is arriving late. Whatever though, it is coming 100% for sure now.

Edit for emphasis: I agree that MSI did customers wrong. But its fixed now so as far as i'm concerned it is water under the bridge Snorkle.gif

^This ..

I just ditched my x58 classified and i7 920 for a asrock z77 extreme6 and 3570k.

On the old setup I couldn't break 1300 without crashing and now I am stable at almost 1317.
I am happy now :-) !!

http://tbreak.com/tech/2012/07/asus-gtx-680-directcu-ii-top-review/3/

Hold up stevemi, just found this Asus DC2T review -- I have to renege on the DC2T recommendation:
Quote:
The ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP was made for overclocking, both the high-end heatsink and components used for energy distribution are proof of this. As such I managed to set the Core clock from 1137MHz (boosting to 1201MHz) up to 1214MHz (boosting to 1278MHz). That’s a 6% speed increase from factory settings and a massive 21% over reference Nvidia speeds. This was accompanied by a 86mV voltage increase to steady things up a bit.Beyond 1214MHz it didn’t matter how much voltage I pushed, the card would crash. Of course, no production card is exactly the same, so your mileage may vary.

Looks like silicon lottery is taking place across a wide variety of cards,... My main point here is going to be that hopefully unlocked voltage will rectify these issues! There is a possibly that unlocked voltage will work on the asus card in addition to the lightning (note I say possibility on the asus, unwinder hasn't confirmed it ---- he has only stated that it works on the lightning and he is still coding it, no timeframe for release yet) but I am really, really excited for some new record overclocks with the new release. thumb.gif

tryed all 4 of them on a maximus v gene/2500k setup and a p67 sabertooth/2600k setup (both cpus oc'd to 4.6ghz). even tryed a clean install of windows with proper driver installation, and also multiple nvidia drivers.
those were the max clocks i reached. think upgrading to ivy will help?

Are you using quad sli? Its near impossible to get good overclocks in quad sli IMHO. Thermal limits will prevent any meaningful overclocks. Heck, even in two way SLI thermal limits become a much bigger problem, overclocks in SLI will hardly ever match single card overclocks. I used 580sli, 7970cf, and 680 sli and none of them could OC anywhere near as well in dual card configs...its just how things are...

The cards will be like .5cm close to each other...there's no way the lightning will have breathroom or legs to OC UNLESS you put them under water.......Now if you put them under water with the upcoming voltage control oh baby....you will be able to OC for sure then thumb.gif

they were all tested individually first. i have 1 in my gf's rig, 2 in mine and i had RMA'd the first lightning i got cuz i was stupid. that lightning was the 1295 oc'ing one...karma? tongue.gif
