This should give you a proper picture. Those are ref cards. So i would say it would be a major upgrade from 580 to 780 lightning. Cant go wrong

Mine will be here tomorrow (Halloween). Should be a noticeable upgrade from my GTX 580 1.5gb card. My UPS person always delivers in the evening...I'll trade em some candy for the Lightning:) Regardless I'll be monitoring the front porch closely so some rogue trick or treaters don't intercept my shipment.

I would love a 2CD but i dont have enough room for the extra rad space i would need to cool both and a 3770K at 4.5GHz.

All i can fit is a 120m/240mm and i dont want to mount a rad externally again like i did on my 800D.

1 should continue to hold me over for a long time....

What is your watercooling setup atm ? im running only 1 360 rad to cool 3770k @4.8 with a 360 rad. Ill get another 480 rad later on. I have 900D. Btw short question regard radiators. The more rads u have, the better cooling u get? Strong pump calculated.

haha i just went to the store i bought my card 20 days ago with printouts from amazon, newegg and tigerdirect. i got a pricematch for the card. i also requested to buy a new one so i ended up paying $200 and i now have 2 lightning. nice thing is my old gtx 670 4gb sold on amazon last night too for $350! smile.gif

My question is that I've been hearing of average OC's on them. I know from a experience my now dead Palit 780 non-super Jetstream was doing 1254Mhz/1780@1.2V.

Do the Lighting's surpass this easily on average? I know its a lottery but I mean on average if they are better than my previous card.

It also commands a 50-65euros premium too.

I would love to hear your constructive input and info. thumb.gif

The core overclocks are good, there is always a bit of luck involved with getting good silicon but it is the same for buying any new cpu or gpu from any manufacturer.

The Lightning's components are heads and tails above other 780s (except for the Classified), so they can handle extra voltage without worry. That alone justifies the premium over other 780's.

This, as far as the gpu core & PCB, lightning is generally equal to the classy. When pushing the voltage & clocks, Lightning & Classified owners can breathe a bit easier than than those with reference cards, the VRMs can take it, with reference it is a guessing game at where a mosfet will blow.

Whats the avg OC for the Core clock?

Lightning Owner here smile.gif

With no added voltage mine benches easily at about 1215 core, +100 for ~ 1.25V gets me 1300-1320 core clock.
MSI did make some with Samsung memory, I don't know if any were or will be sold retail though, they exist but i have no idea how many. There are at least 16 of them out there

Still waiting for waterblock for higher result.My 2 cards have 75 and 80% asicLightning is running with elpida mem but i dont care bout that since its for benchers.I have 2 lightning running in sli at 1280mhz and 200 mem at 1.21volt. With voltage added i could reach 1420mhz with both. Stopped there cos of temp and still waiting for waterblock for higher clock.

This is true, great memory makes a pretty good difference in the Valley scores, but Elpida with a bit lower clocks doesn't make a game unplayable, a nicer core clock can make up for quite a bit.

The memory has really been the only difference on the Classy. Evga was a smart cookie this time buying up all the Samsung ICs, Classy has been ruling the 780s in the Valley thread.
I will have to try to change that... tongue.gif
