GTX 600 Series Unlocked Voltage Bios' downloads and tools. - Page 180

I still think that Green Light program thing is a lame thing for Nvidia to do...may or may not be related to the whole mid range kepler card pushed out of spec to keep up with AMD till they finished big kepler.

It could have been your card just could not handle the extra voltage or something else along those lines. If more people come out and say such things THEN we should be worried.
Very interesting... I personally still have not had any problems with the bios on my card, at all. My max overclocks are still the same and the card does get used almost everyday in games like BF3 at 1300 core, so it is still being stressed. Lets just hope you where wrong and a bunch of broken 600's threads don't start popping up.

The only thing to consider was the volt mod as that was the only variable that changed I tried with my max stable OC (still using same settings many months later on stock bios w/ only the 35mv increase and its fine) and w/ the extra volts it would red screen randomly. yea maybe its just my card being a vanilla 670 but based on what nvidia has said I highly doubt it...

I would like to be able to agree with you, but other people with vanilla 670's have not had problems.

yeah I've seen that nvidia article, it's been discussed HOTLY in OCN rumors section of forums ...

it seems that nvidia is trying to tell the world that those mid-range Kepler chips risk rapid silicone degradation if we keep using them over-volted ... but that mainly was targeted at Lightning/Classified 680 models that can do 1.35v on gpu core ... it's not like it's gonna die instantly at 1.21-1.24v (mine didn't with vmodded BIOS), was fine everywhere except Vantage, but that was the BIOS TDP management issue I think related to rev19 evga BIOS) ... zero problems for many weeks after that at stock rev31 BIOS ... evga 670 reference here.

Okay thanks for the heads up. Knew something was off.

All I'm after really is the voltage unlocked so I can push the highest OC I can within a decent voltage.

Yeah never buying gainward again. Never wanted them to begin with (wanted EVGA 4GB + Backplate) but after 3 returns of different set-ups (Lighting HD 7970, Devil 13 HD 7990 etc) the shop was getting pissed off even though I had good reason to do it every time so I just grabbed what GTX 680 4GB they had in stock and left. With the core at default the most I can OC these cards is 400+ on the memory.

What about in my situation.

0+ core
400+ memory
135+ power

Is the max overclock I can achieve with my GTX 680 4gb SLI. My GTX 690 did 1212mhz on the core and 6700mhz on the memory with the stock BIOS. In my case I'll need the extra volts just to get a similar 1200mhz overclock like most users and to me it will make a huge defference running a 3860x1920 resolution over three screens. 3 FPS increase for my average (from a 50-100mhz overclock) is a big deal, where as most 60Hz and 120Hz single screen users 1080P or 1600P it really isn't.

Okay not gonna do the BIOS mod. I'll just not tell other people my core/clock speeds. All that matters is it's a 680 anyways lol. Now I gotta decide if my second 680 will still be a Palit or some other card..Guess whatever pops up in the market here. Gonna get a used one in a couple months anyway. Thinking of placing an Asus Direct CU II TOP at the bottom PCI-e slot so then it won't get in the way of the other card lol. (Currently in the daydreaming stage, I have like, 0 cash right now lol)

Hmm, you sure? It's like that using overclocking programs as well like gigabyte oc guru

and as you can see its becoming higher with overclocking and the boost is way below? Just checking to make sure I'm not going to screw my card up
