    First Leadtek card WTG and welcome to the Club. Also nice ASIC!

    Still a beautiful Rig puma99dk| and an awesom ASIC score too. Further proves that almost all GTX 600 series have a good ASIC. Most up to 100% but I have yet to see one with above 100% does anyone have one?

    Thx, and above 100% is that even possible? i mean if custom pcb can't hit that, than what will? :D

    My ASIC is only 96.9. I feel left out...lol

    I've OC'ed +220 core and +296 memory. 1200 and 3300 respectively

    Ive only overclocked my 670 by +17 on the core just so itll hit 1200mhz in games haha. I don't need much more, and Summer temperatures suck haha. Waiting for fall/winter/spring to push it.

    600 series cards

    Do reference cards count?
    If so, you can join me in here if you'd like.
    Man, these 600 series cards fly.
    :pimp:

    I would have gone with non-ref but

    Cool, I would have gone with non-ref but they were not available from EVGA through the StepUp Program, it was Reference only. I'm not worried about the design differences anyway, the only reason I would consider one is for the looks of dual fans. My machine runs cold enough with the HAF design case and the fans I have in the system.

    And I don't intend to OC these reference cards to any aggressive extent or at all. I don't have the need. I can play any game so far maxed out and that's about all I require. Not that I can't OC them pretty far, I have tried once and all I can say about that is...I'm impressed with them.
    1149MHz clock speed with low voltage...amazing. And I could go higher easily.

    But I backed them down to default after the test and that's where they will stay for awhile.

    well if u r worried about temps, u can replace ur EVGA stock cooler with a custom, if i am not wrong they still got warranty after u do that ^^

    I do like the looks of the dual fans though

    Worried...lol.
    Not at all worried about temps, as I said, I run cool, very cold actually. The HAF setup I use and the Noctura cooler is the bomb. Just look at the picture, at a 97% load it only gets to 47 C and at only a 46% fan speed.

    I just OC'ed once more to test further...just for shits and grins.

    I bumped the GPU Clock Offset to +135
    The Mem Clock Offset to +139
    The Power Target to 111%
    The Shader Clock: 2465

    Result: CORE: 1.232 MHz
    Result MEM: 3118 MHz
    Result: VDDC 1.175 V
    Result: GPU TEMP 62 Degrees C Max
    Result: Fan Speed 62% Max (2520 RPM)
    Result: Artifacts - cur:0 -max:0
    Result: SCORE 8820 (147 FPS)

    I also use my pcs in a basement and as the home is air-conditioned the basement is somewhat cool. Cool from the duct work down here.

    I do like the looks of the dual fans though and I may look for some kind of custom cooler just to dress up/eye candy my cards. Any recommendations?

    Yeah they do RAW welcome to the club! :toast:


    Yeah I know what you mean Nvidiaintelftw....... This summer has been brutal.....I don't even want to push my Water cooled cards all that far until Fall.

    You should rename my card in the OP as the Evga GTX680 Signature 2 because thats what it is actually called haha.

    Sold my previous EVGA GTX 670 Signature and purchased a(n) MSI GTX 670 Power Edition.

    Really disappointed though; it TDP throttles at 101-103% no matter what I set the power target to. Seems like I'm not the only one who is having this issue either.

    Its boost is also far less than my previous EVGA GTX 670, despite having lower temperatures. If I remember correctly, my EVGA GTX 670 hit a maximum boost of 1307 (and maintained it) at a core clock of 1085MHz with temperatures <70C. My GTX 670 PE only hits 1269MHz at a core clock of 1100MHz, with temperatures <62C; throttling kicks in as well so it's not maintained.

    Not sure if this matters, but I'm using version 304.79 Beta of Nvidia's drivers. Will try 301.42 next.

    EDIT: Well, after hours of overclocking, I've managed 1150MHz stable on the core, with a maximum boost of 1320MHz and no throttling at all. It would be a lot easier if the extra 14% power target worked. With this said, the boost is still much lower than my previous reference GTX 670.

    Using simple math, my EVGA GTX 670 gets a maximum 13MHz * 17 boost, whereas my GTX 670 PE gets a maximum 13MHz * 13 boost. Anyone care to shed some light on the (significant) variation? Or can anyone else chime in about their maximum multiplier boost?

    Based on your overclocking breakdown, would you look over my oc numbers to see if I'm right?

    I've hit so far 13mhz * 18 boost? on my Gigabyte 670Windforce :

    gpu clock +150 to 1130mhz
    memory clock +600 to 1802mhz/7208mhz
    boost clock to 1209mhz
    max clock to 1365mhz

    If you're talking about the math, then it's right. That's an outstanding maximum boost and multiplier compared to mine. Some people have all the luck :p

    What temperatures do you have, and what fan speed? Are the fans audible at that speed?

    I'm just a bit perplexed at the variation of the boost multiplier. Really hoping someone else with a deeper understanding would chime in about it.

    At that oc, the temps hover at 50C and 50fan speed. Fan is pretty quiet. I had to raise the fan speed to 70+ to hear it.

    I'm still want to reach 1400mhz but think I will be limited due to my air cooling.
