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...
Here is the link to the video
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.
