Superglue did the job though, fan has spent quite a bit of time at 100% & still holding. Not much can be done with a stuck or dead fan though...
They wouldnt even let me send it in. They outright refused to get me a fan in any way or let me buy a fan in any way. I have no fan since I got the card free.

First the higher voltage slightly increases power consumption of course, which means the PT is reached earlier (that's why so many people bought the 670 FTW), and secondly the PT isn't a hard barrier, in monitoring you'll sometimes see the max power consumption go past the PT for a short time before the throttling kicks in.

You Should Google the Galaxy Gtx 680 SoC Hall Of Fame.. They all do 1300mhz... lol..

Stock out of the box clocks... 1202mhz 1267mhz boost.. Most boost stock from 1280mhz to 1320mhz "Stock"

And as the Lighting it shares Unlocked Voltage chip...

It's the dual fan 670? 2gb or 4gb? The Galaxy PCB is totally different than the other 680/670 pcb's.

This is the Modded Galaxy GTX 670 GC 2Gb Dual Fan GGC670VM.zip 56k .zip file

If you mean this card then there is none made

I hope nothing goes wrong with my card.
I'm done benching for now so the stock bios is back on.

If they are going to find anything I changed, it would probably only be that I changed the TIM to MX4 lol.
Edit: I'm kinda hoping that they can't fully repair it so I get a new one. The one I had ran hot up to like 76C and clocked only to 1280 with the modded bios, ~1240 on stock bios.

yeah, if it's dead completely then you might get lucky about it smile.gif keeping my fingers crossed for you man smile.gif
my card seems very similar to yours as per max clocks (absolute max 1302MHz core on modded bios with memory stock, 1242 with the stock one combined with mem overclock), however mine runs cool even on air I can't make it hit over 64C even when benchmarking ... but I do use aggressive fan profiles for time being. decided to put my card under water as I simply hate the buzzing noise of small fans... probably not the best decision of my life, but ... always wanted to have a watercooled gpu ha ha!

that's pretty decent price for such "repair" anyways. I had my lump of bad experience with ASUS mobos in past (ages ago), but I might give them a shot again with my next build ... I am not too fond of of EVGA's vision of fully operational BIOS on their boards (even though the hardware quality is very good, the mediocre BIOS kills the deal after all).

The "boost" is partially disabled and you have a fixed gpu clock now.
