Are you still on the air cooler. I only reached about 1359mhz at 1.35v on the air cooler because temps would exceed 70c and I would start artifacting. To really use the voltage controller to it's fullest you really need a waterblock. I was looking at that graph someone posted of the load and idle temp differences between the hydrocopper block and acx cooler. if you look at 1.35v load temps they exceed 90c. The voltage really scales well when keeping these cards cool. My card was completely different after installing the waterblock.
Could you point me to that graph please?
Here you go. it's pretty amazing to see the difference. Even at 1.25v temps get to a high enough range where I would start to see some artifacts while overvolting. This card really does need to be kept cold and low ambient temps really make a big difference also.

I found the EVGA LED Controller program and tried to run that, but no matter what I select, Manual Control and move the slider, or LED Breathing or what ever ... the lights don't change.
Am I doing something wrong or does that program not work for the Classified? Personally, I'l like to just turn them off (or at least find out what they are used for ... diagnostics, etc).
I think that LED controller program is for the titans. When I had my titans I used it to change the green geforce logo. It might also work for the reference 780 coolers that look exactly like the titans. I'm not sure what our leds are for to be honest.

Why would someone do something crazy like that. haha. I do have to update it more though. I felt like I got enough info up to get everyone started but I have been really busy. I just added the skyn3t new revision 3 bios.

really nice clean rig. If you could just post a validation link so I can add it to the form. Thanks.Edited by strong island 1 - 11/9/13 at 12:25am
