Any advantage of 670 on 680 PCB? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Honestly, since nvidia limited overclocking with no voltage increase, it really doesn't matter which one you get, only what chip you get with it.

I got a Gigabyte Windforce x3 OC model and with a modded 1.21v BIOS mine boosts to 1202Mhz and runs fully stable on 1372Mhz.

Benchstable on 1400+Mhz on stock WFx3 air. Of course slightly depending on the bench, Heaven it runs fine on 1412Mhz, 3dm11 as well, but Valley or 3dm2013 is max 1392Mhz.

I am also very pleased with the build quality, looks, cooling performance (hardly ever hits 60c in-game with a <50% fanspeed) and the thickness of the cooler (2 slots, great for SLI)

What were you hitting before hand? I'm 1350 stable on stock, curious how much of a boost that little voltage increase helped.

Well Golden... Not really I guess but it's well above average smile.gif Held the #1 spot on HWBot for a while with the previous owner.
I bought it from a local OCer after my 7970 died.


Before the voltmod it did ~1320Mhz boost gamestable, 1340Mhz bench. It helps, but not a whole lot. But then again, there's no risk in it in terms of hardware damage either. The gain is only 1.175v to 1.212v so difference isn't huge. If we could push 1.312v, now THAT would change the game...

Most you'll get is a busted BIOS so you need a IGP or second card to flash it again smile.gif

I tried it with several 680's (I had 2 DC2O's and a Lightning) and I got the DC2O's to do quite a lot better on 1.212v really. Made +80Mhz and +90Mhz difference.

There's a unlocked BIOS thread on here somewhere. Have a look how much difference it made to those users smile.gif

Point is deaf, you have FTW's. THey are MUCH better binned then the average 1050Mhz stock WF3x Gigabyte smile.gif
But, if you hit 1350Mhz on 1.175v then I wouldn't be suprized to see 1400Mhz stable from them.
