lol I'm fine with RJ its another that I have an issue with, but you're right steven88, lets get back to the topic of the awesome 780.

Been combing the web every night since Computex for MSI 780L news and nothing. All we got is that stupid glass box and not the actual card itself. Bit disappointed with MSI for not being ready with a 780L at the show:mad:

I'll see what AMD offers to compete, at least they don't voltage lock their high end cards, and this is coming from a gtx680 owner so i'm not biased. Voltage locking makes watercooling the gfx card more of an aesthetic thing than what it's meant for (allowing higher performance via more voltage).

Price is more important for me than most of you because in any case, this card is 815USD in Shanghai where I live (just checked the pricing at the biggest online retailer which always offers the lowest price on all products). USA newegg has them for 659USD. You have to ask yourself if you would buy a voltage locked 780 for 815USD. Yes, there might be a 'lightening version' that is unlocked, but that would be around 999 USD or more.

Even though there are hints of slight possibility that the 780 Classified and Lightning are going to have potential true overvolting, nVidia's decision on the Titan could cripple any hopes of letting their OEM's doing so short of having the user void their warranty by hardmodding.

The Titan's release really puts the 780's potential in jeopardy from the get-go. The better plan was they should of let the Titan go non-reference and be not used as a potential wall for lower lineups to not surpass.

I guess AMD has it going by still making GPU's the true enthusiast's way. However, they still need to work on better OEM support and better drivers and long-term support for the most part.

I didn't know the 570s had the issues too. Thought it was reference 580s and 590s that go boom boom. Especially that infamous youtube video and I think TPU's 590s went boom too?

And the funny thing, the GTX 590 youtube video claimed a voltage of 1.025v too lachen.gif

It was the 570 too. Don't remember the thread "have you killed a 570 lately? " Lol.

My first 580s (tri Zotac 3gb) got up to 965 with the stock bios. Never had a problem smile.gif. The 590s I had, never saw a whim of oc because I was very afraid of killing them.

Btw, my pm pop-up stopped working after the last site crash. I do have the setting checked.

The problem went away as soon as aftermarket guys made 570 custom PCB's like MSI & Asus....cuz u know, Military 3 components and Digi+ VRM's are oh so cool tongue.gif

Ppl stuck with the reference 570s just had to watch their clocks and voltage. This was probably the nail in the coffin for over volting. Nvidia then locked the voltage and gave us boost. Didn't they announce that they were doing this to reduce rma(s) rolleyes.gif

So my card will not take a +100 offset on the gpu clock even if I up the volts to 1.187 and take the Mem offset to zero. So I guess I have a crap card? My OC is stable on 1080P with +83 gpu clock and +550 mem in games and bench. It will crash right away at 1440P in games even at +300 mem and +83 gpu clock. Not sure if more voltage will help or not. I still have yet to mod the bios as I am unsure if I am keeping the card at this point.

You forgot to tell us what your final clock speed is...offsets don't mean anything because every sample is different:thumb:

What is your core speeds dude?

+83 core clock doesn't really mean anything.

Thanks, going to be getting my first pair 780s monday Q_Q, need to move later to the US, so my suffering with shipping will end >.<.

Kind of want to get the 3rd to try tri sli, and will push me to go for a full loop with the gpus.

They should be showing in my signature but they are not so the gpu clock per EVGA Precision shows 1188mhz with Boost and GPU-Z shows 1103 boost clock. Stock is 967 but boosted to 1071 with no OC in precision. Memory OC is 3557 but GPU-Z shows 1777 mhz.

Every one of these monitoring programs shows something different.

Sig read out says 1188.

Not a bad card.
