Other than that, he could be thinking like me. I'm on 1080 now, but only because upgrading my monitor would kill my current GPU, and there aren't any nice 1600p IPS monitors out there yet for any kind of reasonable cost. After upgrading the GPU, and giving it about a year for LG and samsung to release all those new panels they're talking about, I'll no longer be on 1080 and that extra 2gb will matter a lot.


you hit it on the head i have a 120hz nvidia 3d vision monitor that is only 1080p but I will eventually upgrade to something better in the future 2k res lets go!

4gb does not help you AT ALL unless you are at 5760x1200, with 4x-8x MSAA. Otherwise its a complete waste.

Zero: you're willing to spend 1k$ on GPUs but you stick with a 1080p panel? You should spend more on your monitor than your GPUs, thats 50% of your experience. Just IMHO:o

So I take it nothing is happening today? Ah well, at least it's coming soon.

So he's aiming for around 1.5v? I wonder what the temperature will limit us to... Especially in SLI. Although even in SLI, running Heaven with both cards over 1300/6800 I only hit 56C on the top card.

So, just wondering...since this is my first Lightning... How much does the PLL voltage help? Anywhere near as much as the core voltage?

I'm still holding out for an Extreme 4GB version...again I have NO idea whether there will be one but I can wait. I just got my 2nd of 3 Catleap 2560x1440 monitors today. I think I would like to play it safe with more VRAM. I'm glad to hear people are enjoying these wonderful cards!

From what i understand, based on the guru3d, all chill based cards will be able to change volts? Also if voltage is unlocked i love to see a new separate thread about oc results.

I nominate you as Thread Owner of a new OC GTX6XX club!thumb.gif

I am hoping very much that voltage will unlock on my Asus 680 as it does have that very same voltage chip.

Doesn't this include DCII cards as well? DIgi+ is the same re branded controller right?

I remember seeing you around here and the EVGA boards ALOT when the Lightning and Classified were announced smile.gif

unlike you I did not wait and got the lightning .. though I got rid of it now that I am back up to three screens smile.gif ...

So if the lightning extreme is just a meme LOL and not released what other cards are you considering? I was looking at the galaxy 4gb as a backup personally...
Also how many are you planning on running for that res?

BTW does anyone know if those galaxy x31 voltage regulation chips which I believe that 4gb as well as the SOC both have are the same as the one the lightning uses?

Thanks guys! The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H and the Asus RoG Maximus V Gene look good. The Gigabyte seems to have more options, while it's slightly cheaper. What's ther deal with the Asus?

Hyper 212+ or Contact 29 should be fine.

What is Ivy? More suggestions on a cooler would be nice. biggrin.gif

I'm a performance and longetivity enthusiast. Performance as in fluid game and mouse look, longetivity as in knowing the system will do the performance thing for some time and I don't have to upgrade nine months later.

Out of curiousity, what is the next best GPU after the GTX Lightning? A MSI Radeon R7970 Lightning perhaps? biggrin.gif

Hey there!

Yup, I got quite busy with work unfortunately, but still active in other areas on the EVGA forums, just not the 680 threads.

I am not really sure what I will do yet. I have 2 680 2GB HC on another X79 build, While I like these cards I should have waited for the extra VRAM before purchasing but I never claimed to be smart:)

I am not convinced yet that the Classy is the card to have. I REALLY like everything about this card, except worrying about the AB release. Maybe I will consider a 670 4GB card and get some blocks? Heck I don't know!
