By the way, i forgot to mention that i'm getting the same gpu clock speed even on stock voltage. Now that makes me realize that my efforts and owning this card are pointless. But that is not to say lightning is bad card overall, it's just the piece that i bought is somewhat a lemon

I have a similar issue in that I can clock to 1254 core and 1750 memory at stock voltages, but adding ANY voltage doesn't yield a higher clock. A real bummer, but it's not the end of the world. I don't understand it because adding voltage should always yield results, but even adding 150mV doesn't get me any higher.

I bought the card on sale so it's a tough decision for me whether or not to replace it. It's like owning a lightning at the price of a little over the reference 780 card. But then again, I wouldn't mind if I pay $50-100 more on a regular-priced lightning if I can overclock the gpu and memory more. Was actually planning to slap a water bock.

I'm disappointed with the overclock, but I love the card because of the build quality. Now I'm considering either the 780 Ti or r9 290x lightning as the replacement.

Thats a tough call. I mean they market the card as an extreme clocker and such but when it hits clocks a lot of regular cards can do it is a bit disappointing. Some people will frown about returning a card for that reason, others see it as you paid a premium for better clocks. In the end its up to you and what the stores return policy is.

I will say though that overclocking and temps are very important. I havent been able to play with a 780 (yet) but with my 770 when I had it on an h70 cooler could game and bench at 1463mhz at 1.385v, then I decided to see what the stock cooler was made of and couldnt even pass a single valley run with even 1.43v, temps were I think around 70c with the stock cooler and 50-54c with the h70. Needless to say now with an ek uni block on and 10c cooler that the h70 Im tempted to see if I can break my last 1515mhz run but it proves the point that temps do make a difference.

yeah, needless to say i'm really disappointed. But in your case, at least you're getting 1750 for memory clock...that's decent.

so, that being said, theoretically these chips are able to produce faster (stable) clocks as the temperatures get lower (?) In my case, it would still be pointless going on water since i don't get much higher clocks, as many of you have achieved, on stock cooler/voltages.

Anyways, i have just ended this lightning misery by going to 780 Ti. I'm yet to see how far this new card goes but it's a relief so far, i'm getting way better performance for lesser power consumption (50W less compared to an overclocked 780 lightning). Plus, no more gripes and disappointments which i couldn't put an equivalent price on...smile.gif

It is rather strange because that is a good clock on stock voltage. You enjoy the 780ti. Hope that it plays nice.

I guess the only thing 'good' i could say about the 780 lightning that i had are:
1) build quality
2) cooling
3) MSI 'modded' stock BIOS that copies EVGA classified clocks (yep, they have it!)
4) skyn3t BIOS

thanks, 780 ti so far plays out nicely...it's like an athlete in evening dress ;-) [got the reference cooler]

Late to the party (LTTP) but loving my GTX 780 Lightning. IMO - best bang/buck card.

GPU-Z validation: http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/dq8s6/

Doing 1280 MHz boost clock using stock BIOS (not LN2) with +25 mV. I have Elpida GDDR5 so memory OCs so far have been meh. frown.gif Going for "game ready" OC so as crashes have hit I've pared back. I can bench a bit higher if I go all out fan and such...ha. Debating getting a 2nd! Great value at $500!

Where did you get yours? I can't find any new ones on sale here in the US.
