Use a different 680 for SLI?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
guys im wanting to get another 680 for my current build, but i have the EVGA 680 Superclock Signature now this card i can't get in australia anymore

What other card can i run with it? I understand if the other card has higher clocks it will down clock to match but i need to get one that will also fit waterblocks on it

Get any reference 680 with the same vram size to match your reference card. Clocks do work independently, there is no down clocking to the slower card.

Oh really? So if 1 card overclocks better than the other then it will stay at those better overclocked speeds whilst the other one will stay as is (providing it doesn't overclock as well)

So if one is 1300mhz on the core, the other is 1266mhz on the core they both will keep their respective overclock?

Correct. Look at the separate clocks on my GTX 690 in gpuz:

Excellent! Explained perfectly mate cheers for that really appreacite it!

Just one more question to put my mind at ease smile.gif

So my current EVGA GTX 680 SC Signature (reference design i believe?)

Coupled with this gpu

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19988

The EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2GB Superclocked will be fine?

In other words it seem's they will work in tandum which is great, but are the cards the same size? Would i have an issue with putting on a waterblock if one is shorter or are they the same size?

Seeing they are both reference (depending if the SC Signature is also) they should have the same size PCB right?

Sorry for the noob questions mate haha, Haven't watercooled GPU's before but looking to expand my WC'ing loop smile.gif

I wouldn't know about the PCBs of said cards and water blocks. I have seen some EVGA reference 680s with revised PCBs that are supposed to be the same card.

Hopefully someone else will help out with this question.
