Go Swag ! thumb.gif Congrats, great choice - and kudos (that's kudos, not cudas of which you have plenty now) how you arrived at it...ask for some feedback, then get the top two competitor cards and try them out yourself in your rig until you find what you like best...plus great expansion capabilities if that's really needed thumb.gif

Yea, I've done decisions before by just going with it but this time I decided to see which one I truly liked better. If that 7970 wasn't so damn loud, I would've probably went for that. And the fact that the 680 looks 100X sexier. tongue.gif

...of course, now you have to deal with IvanL when he finds out biggrin.gif - if you can't chase 220 volts through it, he probably won't like it - but I have to say I love the guy's 'unique' approach to things

Honestly, I don't want to increase the voltage going through this card... I need it to last 3 years at least...

...besides, even at max 'factory v' you got some nice oc tools available without frying the card...I go through s.th. like that with my delidded CPU...I can push it even more at room temps than I already have, but this system also has some big work stuff (software design) on it. The latter takes about two weeks to set up right...so if it is a choice between a 'Banzai' run that however endangers the whole setup, or a few validation runs that are still within my safety envelope...

BTW, as a new 680 owner, NVidia released a new WL driver earlier today (314.07)

I think that's the one I'm using. Lol, I reinstalled my entire Windows too. I'm loving this Precision X tool, very easy and straightfoward for OCing this card.

But seriously folks, the NVidia Kepler family encompasses a whole bunch of chips from the 6 series to the Titans...sort of like a car manufacturer with various engines on offer which share much of the same architecture such as bore, stroke, valve timing etc....what's different is the number of cylinders and turbos...you want a 4, or straight six, a V8 or a V12 (or for Titan Bugatti fans, a W-16 with quad turbos biggrin.gif )

...paying $500 for a 670 sounds a bit high, even with w-c...in any case, in a well-cooled case SLI 670ies such as Asus Direct CUii don't really need w-cooling in my my experience, only when moving to tri-SLI might it become an issue due to impeded air flow (I will soon find out). In my SLI 670 Asus Direct CUii setup, temps in the GPUs, oc'ed that they are, never exceed high 50ies / low 60ies -- even during major benchmarking such as 3D11, Vantage or Firestrike...intense gaming for an hour is in the low 50ies. Max temp threshold for this card is about 85 C, and throttling starts at 70 C.

If $s are a concern, you might want to find the best deal on a well-cooled 670 solution such as Asus Direct CUii which should run you about $360-$380...if I recall this correctly, you already have a machine with an (EVGA?) 670...you can even for just an afternoon SLI those to find out what you gain...SLI 670, even before they are 'breathed on' represent a very fast combo. (SLI will work across different manufacturers, just not different classes, so 2GB 670 by different manufacturers can be SLI-ed)...see how that works with your favourite games and settings, then make a decision.

Water -cooling GPUs is s.th. I will look at soon, but only because a.) I will be running tri-SLI and b.) I am really looking to get ready for a Titan SLI or tri-SLI later in the year (and distribute the current 670ies across other machines here). Therefore, I am NOT buying 670 custom blocks, but Uni-blocks and some sort of VRM solution I can switch over to Titan later. thumb.gif
Thanks a lot for the post, and information.
It is entirely possible I am doing something wrong, since I am new to GPU overclocking. Maybe we have different views of fan noise, personally I am allergic to it. If mine 670 (at 1163 and 3734 oc) hits 55% fan speed I think it is annoying, and the card will throttle as soon as it hits 70c. If you can tell me a way to have a single 670, by itself, run Heaven with max settings at 1920x1080, never have it hit 70c, and never have the fan go much over 50% I would love to know it.

As far as the case goes, I can’t seem to get much difference out of that when I am testing. I am sure it would be different after hours of game play, but whether I close my case up with a couple slow fans or take both side panels off and point a large floor fan at the mobo, temps on my 670 still go over 60c while stress testing with Heaven.

With a single card, Precision X works best - even for those with non-EVGA cards. I had it running for a month, but for some reason it did not like voltage adjustments (within factory envelope) on card #2...Asus' GPU Twek is ok, though Precision-X is better otherwise

...working on 'White Elephant' - my new system in a white Stryker case...so many upgrades that I probably will have to reinstall windows, like you...bought an Intel Series 520 SSD yesterday and staring at the 'transfer OS' button...instead of a fresh install...

the aforementioned work stuff is what holds me back re a fresh start right now...

Yeah, I'm disappoint... xD
Enjoy your card Swag. It's more of a straightforward thing with the kepler boost. Remember to replace the stock tim with Liquid Pro/Ultra. That will keep it from throttling when reaching 70c.
Thus you won't even need a bios flash and pseudo-overvolting. Just oc the ram as much as possible and the core a bit without getting throttling (and max the power target)
