So you decided to uncork a lightning?
No still have not shot yet, I canceled my sale due to issues(not with him) but he said he could wait so in a day or 2 I will sale it and order the card with 1 day shipping. I am just stuck though: I know the 7970 will be faster, by how much and whether it will make a huge difference at what I do I do not know. I do not want to go crazy bench marking, just a little for fun I still will mostly just game(My main games being Starcraft II and BF3). Both cards will run those games perfectly fine, hell my 670 runs them both perfectly fine. It is just whether or not I want to take the plunge to AMD. I am by no means a fanboy, but all this talk of how the games are less smooth and stutter more with AMD effect my decision greatly. I mean, I run games at all low just to never drop below 120fps, I am kind of a smoothness freak tongue.gif , these monitor do that to you. I am about 70% sure I will go with the lighting though. Both will be within a few fps of each other. If I choose to not upgrade to the 780 or wait for aftermarket 780's or AMD's next offerings, and go dual gpu, I am kind of afraid to go dual gpu with AMD because of all the problems I hear about it and how they are not smooth(coming back to how I am a smoothness freak) and how Nvidia is smoother with dual gpu setups and AMD is for raw fps.

The 7970 with a good oc will be a LOT faster...you've seen those hard ocp 12.11b comparisons I guess.

Good news, check this out!!!
Makes me wanna sell my ftw locally and grab a 680 dcuII lol

Yeah, indeed, only downside is the lack of a full coverage water block. (toasty vrm will limit your oc)

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/3504758

I still think a 7970 is better all around, without so much hassle (and less arguably fun biggrin.gif, unless you do the same treatment with vga hot wire to a dcuII top or matrix tongue.gif)
Perhaps you can go sli with a second ftw card? 120hz/3d would benefit from sli 670's, as long as it's 1080p

EDIT: have you tried the lightboost no motion blur hack?

I just tried and and no luck, can not find a solid guide.
EDIT: Found no never mind.

Hi guys and thanks for great guides and files and links.

I did everything just fine like guide with KGB i took the bios for Gigabyte gtx 670 OC windorce with base clock 980mhz(the one with 3 vents and the 680? blue pcb 6+8pin) i unlocked it with kgb made a flashing USB etc etc everything worked just fine flashing wise.
My problem is after boot up in gpu-z it shows 1202 mhz i ran afterburner increased voltage to max, tdp +150% and started running unigine and games all with no exception crash.
So my previous max clock was 1170 anything above that and i had error on all 3d app''s so i droped it just under 1170 and all apps worked just fine with the flashed bios.
Now i dont know if the bioses are useless/i did something wrong/ or its a hardware/Driver limitation.
Seeing you guys reach 1300mhz somewhat stable is just wow O.O
Seems like i have a doomed card no matter what wont go over 1170 not even by 1mhz without crashing 3D app's.
I also tried different OC's 130 power only +50 mv 1190 mhz nothing works above 1170.
So if anyone knows whats the problem and can help i apreciate.

Btw i used 310.70 beta? driver.

Maybe you just got a really bad overclocker.

On stock BIOS (1.175v) mine can both do ~1240MHz Core and +500MHz Memory while at Custom bios (1.212v) they can do ~1306MHz Core and +500MHz Memory.

frown.gif( that bad?? i can do 500-550 memory no problems but not the core everyone with any version that said they oc the card they get at least 1200 with or without bios mod my just doesnt want anything.mad.gif

It can happen...it's a lottery after all. Try the modded bios (if you have an igpu or extra gpu in case something goes wrong and you need to reflash)

seems like a bad clocker card as said above ... if core becomes unstable over certain frequency, sometimes no matter how high volts you put it won't stabilize ...

my both 670's can as well do 1240 on stock BIOS, after BIOS mod, one card goes up to 1293MHz (with +525 mem offset), other does up to 1280MHz with around +550 mem offset.

in SLI however I need to keep them at 1267MHz or if higher then one of cards (secondary most likely) will blank out and lock the system. common memory offset in SLI is +500 max for me. not bad. nothing great either LOL! suits my needs though.
