Hey guys,

Looking at getting this card. Quick question..i'm running a lightning 680..will i see much of an increase in performance? And how hard is it to get a waterblock for this?

Cheers guys.

You will see an increase in FPS, power consumption is better, it's quieter, and it OCs like a beast. EK makes a full block.

Just purchased a card for $320. Look forward to replacing my 680L with it. smile.gif So what bios is everyone running for best overclocks? And are people having PSU issues? Will my 850w run a single card with a high overclock easily? (My cpu is running an i5 3570k at 4.5ghz 24/7)

Oh and now i need a waterblock. What type is everyone using and where can i get one in Australia. biggrin.gif

Cheers everyone.

Any of you guys running 2 x lightning on air, if so which board are you using? and what is the pcie spacing like, currently have my build round the z87 maximus gene so looking for the best sli option as the gene does not have the spacing for 2 x lightning on air, wanted to go hard line tubing for my cpu loop and the fact the z87 Asus formula lets you use compression fittings for the vrm block would be ideal over the gigabyte sniper 5 but am concerned looking at photo's that there would be no room for sli and my sound cad on the formula.

The other option would be to wc both and they would then probably fit on my gene board, is it possible to use the original backplate or save any of the lighting features the cards have on air?

Also could just wc the top card, what is the thickness of the card with a block on? thanks

Thanks

I have two 780 Lightnings, using an Asus x79 WS board.  The top one is using the g10 cooler, and an AIO though, so I am not much help on temps.  Before I had the g10 on it did get up to around 80C or so while gaming with BF4.

Trying to avoid swapping my board but think will be impossible, simply too small to sli 2 of these monsters lol, just checked the bottom pci lane and even if waterblocked the top card into my loop to make that lane available the lower lightning would not be able to sit in the bottom pci without conflicting with all the front panel wiring. Is just pretty difficult to get a board suitable to sli this gpu on air due to lane spacing.

Wow. Awesome deal that you got there. I would jump all over a deal like that. Still considering sli, but I am having to look at evga classifieds because I can't find any lightning cards.

The coolers on these things are massive. They take up three slots easily. If you install a water block, they only take up two slots. The GPU reactior also sticks out from the back of the card, but it can be removed without I'll effects. I have an Asrock OC formula board, I don't think that I could fit sli with aircoolers either.
