Spread spectrum messes with that as well...I'd just set it at 100 manually and disable spread spectrum and focus on multiplier ocing for 24/7 anyway. That's just me though. thumb.gif

Lightning is best for ln2 really.

But not true man...Look at the scoreboard, no 7950 in that ranking for a while scrolling down...

True dat...ssd data corruption is the only concern I'd have and instability for 24/7 use. For benching, bclk all the way thumb.gif

It is very true id say a good 10% faster.

Reason u see no 7950s is because ppl who compete on HWBot are not gonna buy 7950s to do it there gonna use 7970s lol. doh.gif

I was thinking the windforce from gigabyte, the ghz edition or no?

Nope, ghz ed might be locked...older non ghz are the ones to get.

Hokies is partly right, although at least one guy has pushed the 7970 & 3770k on Ln2 not many are. If andre was using one, it would probably be higher up the ranks.
But that one ln2 cooled 7950 result, in the rankings counting all gpus in 3dmark 11 it is way down that list, #160 in the ranking. http://hwbot.org/benchmark/3dmark11_-_performance/rankings?cores=1#start=0#interval=20

Upping the bclk does overclock the pci-e, it isn't going to blow anything, but data corruption does become a possibility. There are a lot of overclocking do's & don't's that get ignored, bclk is like vdimm, a lot of people think going over 1.5V on the memory will kill their cpu, far from it. Kinda like a bit of bclk.

I've been totally happy with my lightning, good overclocker with all types of cooling, & can take what you throw at it.
If you're going to run on air, no reference cooler unless you're comfortable with earplugs. & as ivan pointed out, Ghz editions aren't really better binned chips, & many are voltage locked.

Alright so the normal ones huh. FtW ill be ln2/ h20ing them. Will ln2 them first mostlikely then through them into my rig for normal usage tongue.gif

I mean I wouldn't mind keeping the 680 and get 2 more of them but I want some serious boints this summer. New 3770K soon (hopefully) got my new 8800 ultras waiting for me got my 8800 gtx hungry for ln2 and just need a new psu mobo and then ill be good for a while, just need pots and ln2 and moar gpus really.

For ln2 I would go for the lightning or matrix, not sure if the giga models come with overvoltage software or ready made hardware mod points like the lightning/matrix do.
Otherwise, you will be soldering to those little 0.5mm resistors for more vgpu. I've done it many times & still found just the other day that soldering on a new expensive card can be really nerve-wracking.

Two for two successful thus far. Mystery nick on the PCB, I have no idea how I got there, because by the time I was using the sides I was almost pushing it flat with my thumb. The damage seems to be a corner of the blade rubbing up against the PCB - you can sort of see it squished up. I recommend using Feather blades first to split the glue and IHS apart, and then using a thin break-off box-cutter blade to do the rest. In my case, the razor blade's width was perfect so I could push it all the way in without going near the die on the sides.



1. Feather blades are thin so easy to break/loosen the glue. It goes through em like butter.
2. Razor blades are thicker to fully separate the IHS and PCB. The blade goes in easy and the thickness forces the two apart. I just used my thumb to gently push the blade further and further in, and when the base of my thumb hits the CPU PCB I know that side is completely done.
Then I used nails on the side to twist off the top.



This time it took 15 minutes tops. The second time around I knew what I was doing.

Yah if u want to really compete you need a 7970 lighting or Matrix.

I just wany my 7950s each running 1250mhz + and 1600mhz mem +

Which should beat a 680 in most games.
