All this voltage talk , and in a positive spin of it being on it's way is SOOOO exciting (I have said it a few times already) and be prepaired for me to say it several more times!!!

It also makes me have a HARD time taking 3 way 4gb cards over 3 of these babies!!! smile.gif

Big smiles over here in Seattle!!! YEAH!

I hope that with gtx 780 will be able to control the voltage for all models

Yeah if not that would be truly disappointing... I dont get why they did this in the first place but left it unlocked for the older cards that would get fiery hot with stock volts (480 for ex.) If anything these cards should of defiantly had it unlocked as they are more efficient and cooler.

EDIT - Lol at the thought that software voltage control will allow anything like 1400mV! You'll be lucky to see 1300mV (Anandtech said that the EVBot only allowed for 1275mV in their review). EVGAJacob has said repeatedly that Nvidia is very much against voltage manipulation and MSI isn't going to allow you guys to start blowing up and RMA-ing your Lightnings....

i disagree. for those of us that are going to bench these cards with LN2, we will likely have voltage in the 1.6+ range using the LN2 bios. the regular bios may have a limit at like 1.3 or 1.4, but the LN2 bios should give a much greater amount of voltage. Its called the LN2 bios because its supposed to be used with LN2 lol

Think I might have gotten my choices more clear smile.gif

Firstly I will open up the option of having 4 way sli even with the asus rampage 4 by using a pci 1x extentor and putting the sound card into one of the unused case pci slots (big case LOL) .

So I can do:

4 way Lightning with Universal blocks (already have 2 blocks) and add some copper to the heatsink plate the copper on the plate with some air from 120mm fans should keep the vrm's quite cool smile.gif but is only 2gb vram

4 way 470 4gb with universal blocks and the vrm's already have aluminum heatsinks also has a back plate for looks smile.gif a shade under $2000

or

3 way classified Hydro coppers with 4gb ram ... universal block is not as easy and I cannot afford 4 of them with the HC ... about $2500 with EVBOT and backplates

man it is looking like it comes down to the extra vram of the 470's or the VOLTAGE on the Lightnings!!!

I have enough psu power and cpu power for all those configurations and 3D surround to drive ....

well I am SOOO happy the lightnings are back in the running LOL

another thing you should always consider is which of them will be easier to sell and hold its value the most when it's time for you to sell them in a year or so. The more popular a piece of hardware, the easier it will be to sell when you want to upgrade. It's not something a lot of people think about when making a purchase, but it's something I've learned to do.. it makes upgrading A LOT easier in the future.

I'm as pissed about the voltage control issue as the next guy, pal.

Difference is, I realize that moaning about it on the internet isn't going to do anything but make my fingers tired.

So go ahead and make some more posts about it.

and you don't think seeing people unhappy had anything to do with Unwinder graciously shifting his vacation time to work on this for MSI and us complainers?

I am not moaning just commenting here and there in a balanced way, nor am I giving "moaners" a hard time ... SHEESH rolleyes.gif

I also apologize if my comment caused any ill will ... sorry , drunken.gif
