So far, I am leaning towards the 680, the 7970 is quite a bit louder and it has this whine to it that just annoys me. I'm going to see the overclockability of each and then make a final decision! tongue.gif

8/10:
2 marks lost for 2 things:
1. Cooler is huge
2. matx board is too small for that case -> waste of space

They can be relaxing at least. Start superpi 32m with intel, you have a few minutes for a beer. Run pi 32m with AMD, get a case, sit back, relax, watch a movie...biggrin.gif

True dat...AMD is more like previous gen Intel stuff (p55 and x58). Much more challenging and fun to oc, and with even higher oc headroom.
Check the highest valids for ddr3 and cpu clocks...AMD fx/fm1/fm2 and older intel stuff.
I love Celly d's lol

I will try that with my new chip, I'd do one corner first with the razor in case the dental floss won't cut in. I'm positive it would do the trick after opening one corner up.
No need to heat anything probably too...

Coil whine? get a replacement, it's pretty commonplace...or try to put some silicon in there to avoid the caps to buzz.
Oc wise the amd card will trump the kepler unless it's volt locked. What model is it? You should have gotten a Gigabyte windforce oc, dcuII or one of the HIS high end models (they are cheap and on par with the best Asus cards for oc)

EDIT: @ the MVG and D14 haters...bruce.gifbuttkick.gif xD

Lol its probably the size of the case vs the board and D14.

I did get the Gigabyte 7970 Windforce.

I think you could try replacing it...see if it's voltage locked or not first. Remember Afterburner has some quirks to unlock voltages anyway, a friend of mine had some trouble with it. Check the Msi 680 Lightning thread here for a quick guide.

I am willing to try but I see your going to. I highly doubt it will work as floss has no way of tearing the glue. it will simply slide back and forth. piano wire is to think. possibly guitar strings for banjos of super thin strings but then it will harm you to be able to hold them and the string might be to abrasiveness then....

tx !...much better but edges are still there...call me the sensitive type (when it gets to that kind of thing) biggrin.gif - I want truly curved, no-edge O-LED's - like in sci-fi movies (...whaddayamean 'that's not real '!) mad.gif

I won't be touching AMD again for multi-screen gaming... would take a performance hit with Nvidia just for more stability.... Even though AMD strokes my Epeen like nothing else redface.gif

Think today I will be receving my 690 (two 680s incoming in as soon as Aramex gets their act togather and delivers them)

Faster Aramex Ship Faster... I NEED MY CARDS YESTERDAY ARRRRGH!

Two problems I am seeing... the 690 is 2gbX2 and each 680 is a 4GB version so I might try going for titan if the performance/price@7680x1440 is justified.

Nvidia pulling something like 3xTitan ($2700) is better then 2x690 ($2000) and not stating any numbers is just.... stupid.

If I see that the Titan is a flop I would sell the 690 and find a used 680 4GB from the influx of kepler owners who would jump ship and use the funds from the 690 to water block all 680s and just have fun with tri-sli until the new generation of cards come along.

./praying that twin forzr 680 4GB is a semireference card for waterblock integration.
