Originally this video was meant for a post at MSI Forums with Mystic light issues. No picture b/c i'm at work.

My setup shows a nice gap between the cards. Both cards stay pretty cool and haven't witness the fans running at 100% yet. Although I'm having trouble with clock speeds staying above 2000mhz. Maybe that is when I need to switch to LN2

This is a new setup so don't complain about the wiring. I ordered a bunch of cable combs and etc...

Hi,

recently bought a Lightning X too. I also have trouble keeping it over 2 Ghz. On the other hand it boosts to ~1930 out of box without any tweaking. With power limit maxxed out and a little offset on the gpu it runs consistently at 1987 Mhz. Sometimes peaks at 2012. In the range of 80 - 200 fps I noticed some coil whine though. Still pretty well noticable through a closed case. You noticed any of that on your cards?

LN2 bios doesn't have any effect on my gpu clocks (but that's pretty much what the few reviews on the lightning cards were already saying). Higher power limit or voltage doesn't help. Going on more than +75 Mhz on the core in Afterburner leads to crashes in benchmarks after a few seconds.

Interestingly enough when I look at 3DMark scores, my card often times reaches better framerates than much higher clocked 1080 TIs (2088/2100 Mhz+). Sill wondering how that's possible.

Anyways, very nice, cool and quiet card.

Does anyone know if all the Lightning models are limited production or just the Lightning Z's? Been looking to get one but recently they are out of stock, at least in the U.S.

This happened shortly after the initial launch (sold out), and then a little while later, newegg got all models in stock again. No one really knows but maybe they'll restock again. You can also check amazon, and sometimes people sell some sealed brand new on ebay so check there too. Just watch all the sites once a day and see if they restock again.

Tough to answer. I was looking for a second Lightning for a while. I got lucky and found a used one from a forum member here this week and snapped it up. in the last month newegg restocked once and they sold out literally within hours. Currently there are NONE on ebay. there was one last week for $2000 usd and a used one for $925. I tried bidding on the used one until the owner backed out and decided to keep it. I emailed MSI twice about it and have gotten no response from them about any restock. As far as I know the "Z" was the limited production unit with 3000 or 3500 world wide AFAIK. As stated above keep your eyes peeled daily and strike when you can. or put a ad in the classifieds here stating that you are looking for a used one. they are not becoming any easier to obtain. when newegg gets them in it's consistently in quantity's of 2 x's and 2 z's With the Announcement or the new MSI Gaming X trio. My feeling is they may move away from the lightning and push this card. But who knows. Good luck.

I got both of my X's from Newegg. Although it was 1 per house hold, had to wait 48 hours until I could order again. It was a long 48 hours, was on my knees praying that it would not go out of stock haha.

Just got my second card today. Been benching all morning. My fears of egg scorching temps are unfounded thankfully, with fans fully cranked they didn't even crack 60c. About 76c with stock auto settings. Just need to get a nice hb bridge and done. Very happy with it.

Nice. Glad to hear it. I have a few HB sli bridges for sale in the marketplace section. Take a look. smile.gif

Is that with side cover off, or side cover on? Just curious, you have it off in the pics.
