YOU SPEND TOO MUCH ON THOSE GPUS! 690 + 2x 680? That's like $2000 on just GPUs!

Hmm.... Lets see how much I spent on GPUs...

4x7950s = 320x4 = $1280+($200 Shipping to my country) = $1480
Waterblocks+Backplates+Single Slot boards = 4x(100+25+10) = $540+Shipping = $680

Getting royally rustled by AMD poor driver support and contstant AMD issues (I went for a 3770k instead of a 3930k because of their crappy issue of X79/X58 crashing eyefinity/crossfire users) and now facing daily issues with just keeping THREE SCREENS ON.

Made me go green.... literally!

Now 2x680 4GBs = (2x$400)+$50 Shipping = $850
Switching out two of the 7950s for a 690 = -1000+(2x455) = -$90 I actually something out of this transaction lulz!

Now I am debating if the 690 with 2GB on each core is worth it over selling it and getting a third 680... Two 7950s to get rid of too.

Thats high end hardware enthuasim.... too much of a money sink.

Oh well until I can sort out the GPUs my beautilfull delidded 3770k will be cooled by 3x360 Rads! thumb.gif

Waaaay too much money. If I were you, I'd stick with the single 690. It performs faster than the 680s (I believe so) and it will save you money on the electricity bill. tongue.gif Also, your CPU won't bottleneck you because running 2 high-end gpus will stress the CPU a lot!

Also here is what I have planned so far:

I'm thinking of changing those RX240s to 2x MONSTA radiators.

I might be repeating myself re posts, but if you decide to keep the 680 you REALLY want to try out the GTX 600 series Bios mod thread at OCN and look for 'KGB' mods...you in fact can base those mods on your existing Bios, or another one.

...I ended up with three Asus Direct CUii 670ies (ultimately for other productivity machines here which currently just have iGPU) in my 'play' rig. I tried several different BIOS configs (from mild to wild) but then went to Asus' site and got the 'TOP' Bios which I then loaded on all three (via a bootable USB). That was a big step up, but I followed that up by modding that new TOP Bios with the KGB. Cards are stable and don't overheat but GPUs now peak between 1250 and 1370 + -, while all of their VRAM is up to an effective 6800 from 6000 (1502 to 1702)

Bottom Line: EACH 670 on its own now scores over 10000 @ 3D11, and in SLI, my Vantage score is mid 51K (need to finish my case move before tri-SLI scores). That alone was a gain of about 1000 points just for an afternoon of 'free modding' and a $12 USB stick

The described mod does work for all 600 cards and the 680 is no exception, regardless of make / model.. biggrin.gif

.I realize it is a brand new card you want to keep for a long time and you don't want to wreck the thing, but when the urge hits later...with 'KGB' you have the option of basing it on your own factory BIOS...all that without external Volt modding, which of course remains an option (which I might try later, already have been asking the specialist re voltage mod points)

what modded BIOS did you try ? There are so many of them listed and I had to go through several - what is your card's make and model ?
post #12226 of 33658
Those modded bios are all ready downloaded and put into sequence for testing purposes biggrin.gif

Single 690 is two 680's in sli with lower clocks and tdp and less oc headroom.

Your dcu II gpu has gpu tweak solder points clearly labeled on it for voltage control via gpu hot wire. Check it out, google it or search it at anandtech forums...You can solder two or three wires and get hardware voltage control to exceed the stupid nvidia limits too wink.gif
post #12229 of 33658
Time to sell the 690 then... Quad-Sli scaling is meh anywhy biggrin.gif

Head hunting a 680 4GB now I give out meger sweets to those who help biggrin.gif... Forgeting the titan since it's not within my budget rolleyes.gif

Praying that the Twin Forzrs I am getting are reference PCBs smile.gif

Thinking EK blocks+Parallel Flow Bridge!

Some twin frozers use the same lightning pcb so you might not be lucky with that...

Where are you located man?
EDIT: ah, Dubai...noticed you used private couriers (200 shipping), that ain't a good idea man. Use USPS Priority and voila. You save on custom tax too if the packages aren't big.
