Galaxy GTX 680 GC 4GB.

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I placed an order of one of these amazing cards, received it and it is working well. However Tiger direct did not include the two free game titles that were to be included. I contacted the support phone number to no avail. I was wondering if the Galaxy rep could help me out with this issue. Other than that I will included my unboxing video, and a link to my 3dmark11 score with this amazing card.

is that gpu oc?? if so that phenom is bottlenecking that card about 15-20%..you gpu score should be higher unless your running stock? nvidia did the same to me with ac3..i bought the gtx 650 for a friends build and never recieved the game..tigers should have included a card with a code on it..when i bought my 680s i got 2 cards for boarderlands 2..so tiger is the one you wana talk to about getting that. and the only person helpful here was a galaxy rep! so you came to the right place

Not a concern to me at this point in time. What is a concern to me is if tiger direct will send me AC3 and Borderlands 2 Game Vouchers. or if I can receive them directly from galaxy.

So far the current boost clock hits 1188 but in most of the games I play I wont notice the bottleneck, and I'm very happy with my current performance for what I do. If i was more of a benchmark NUT I would probly go 3570k.

Thanks for the help SnitchKilla11

So Far Cry 3 and Battlefield 3 has crashed at random increments (anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours into a gaming session) My video card has not seen temps higher than 65C and usually stays well below that when running my fan profile. These crashes happened on both 306.97 and 310 not sure which 310 driver. I am using Windows 8 but I did not have any crashes when playing any games with my gtx 460 with 306.97.

Game performance is excelent I usually see average of 55 FPS with Far Cry 3 and about 60 FPS average with Battlefield 3. I notice no texture load with any of the games, and no tearing at all or stutter like I have had in the past.

Upon overclocking attempts with Evga Precision X I was able to set my power target to 110 +40 +40 and It seemed to be ok, with not much improvement to my boost clock. I beleive 1214mhz.
AGAIN TEMPS NOT REACHING 70C usually below 65C MAX thanks to the excelent non ref cooler on this card.

Going any further I was well under the magic 70C for throttling due to my fan curve setup. But when running EVGA Oc scanner, OC scanner would load the benchmark and freeze. Im hoping im just having driver issues.

*note*
I did do a fresh install of everything video card related, DRIVERS FRESH INSTALL
EVGA PRECISION X FRESH INSTALL, EVGA OC SCANNER FRESH INSTALL. I wonder if im having factory overclock issues. I will try at least one more different driver install maybe two to see if i have any further issues with both overclocking issues and gaming issues.

I do have the galaxy tech rep in my contacts and I have almost resolved the issue above about receiving my game vouchers.

If anyone has any other suggestions beyond a fresh install of windows 8 I would love to hear it.

I talked to NVIDIA and they in turn are working it out with Amazon/Tiger now. We should hopefully have things taken care of soon on your game codes.

As for the crashing, is FC3 freezing up like the OC scanner bench or are you getting an error of any kind? Does the game still crash when all the eVGA software is completely disabled?

The error I get is Far cry 3 has stopped working, and in event viewer the error is 1000.

I did not play any games last night, but I did run oc scanner stress test for 2 hours, along with the high heat test on prime 95. Every thing was fine.

Today I ran heaven for more than 1.5 hours and no crashes in it. I just think Far Cry 3 Needs a patch or two, BF3 on the other hand is just notorious for crashing even with factory overclocked cards, I have a friend who has a EVGA 680 FTW 2gb and he has crash issues with BF3 every other day, hes running windows 7 so who knows. Ill just keep an eye on things. My temps are great even when looping heaven. Im not that worried I think if anything im just having issues with drivers and windows 8.

Ill also note that I do have a bit of a bottleneck with my phenom 955 black edition, even at 3.84 ghz its still a bit of a bottleneck.


Thanks for your amazing work Galaxy you the man!
