    Yeah the gigabyte windforce cards look fantastic.
    Have you had any success with overclocking your card to 1400mhz?

    Haha nice! Love this card, runs cool and oc's like a mofo. Mine's running at 1310 with no voltage tweaking. Gonna push it a little more this weekend. Very impressed with it so far.

    Adding some benchmarks for a little fun friendly comparison Funkengreuven are going to be having. Feel free to get in on this everyone. But here are my (video card completely stock runs) for Metro 2033, 3Dmark11, 3Dmark Vantage, and Heaven Benchmark 3.0.
    Settings:
    Heaven and Metro 2033 were performed @ 1920x1080p on the highest settings possible. (Everything enabled) 3Dmark11 and 3Dmark Vantage were done on performance settings.

    Here they are..... post your stock video card runs and overclocked runs.... I will be doing some overclocked runs tomorrow.

    Stock Clocks 3 Way GTX 680 SLI /+-0/+-0/+-0 1058 Core / 1502 Mem CPU = i7 3770K @ 4.5Ghz

    Haven't yet, but it's only another 30mhz, so I'm sure it's doable. Might try it tomorrow if I get a chance. It's late tonight...

    @20mmrain: 3dmark11 and 06 wont post scores and crashes half the time with a system info error. I wonder if its a dx issue? Idk.

    see if this works.....

    Or you can try this one I found for 3dmark06

    See if either of these fix your issue.

    The last thing I would try is uninstall reboot and re install the programs.

    Here's my 3dmark11 score. I'm pretty proud of 10361 for GPU. I just have 3dmark11 basic so score is online: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4171652

    Jesus some nice runs you have there! I will do some 1 card only runs tonight. To see how a 680 stakcs up. Because that 670 you have there is a beast.

    And a 1 or a 2 min run @ 1400mhz..... I don't think my card can get that high. I think that highest I have had one of my cards is 1342Mhz.

    Nice job man! :toast:

    Thanks!

    I'll try at 1400, but I actually got better scores at 1240 than 1300. Idk why.

    So here is a single GTX 680 Reference @ 1324/1701 with a P Score of P10869 and a GPU score of 11083. This was done with my cpu @ 4.5 ghz. I feel that my score is stalling because my CPU is actually starting to hold back the overclock. I get this idea.... because of watching the FPS during the benchmark. In areas it looks like it is being capped @ 60fps and I know it is not because of V-sync. I may try to up my cpu overclock and see if it does make a difference in the GPU score.

    Very nice.

    I got another 48 points lol. 25 more for GPU.
    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4183447


    I'm having a conundrum. If I OC any higher my score drops by like 1000 or more points, even only 20mhz on memory or core clock. Is that normal or no? because It's still stable, it'll get through the benchmark just fine, just lower frames. Don't know why

    Hello! I am new to this fine 6xx Club, I just got myself a Gigabyte 670OC.

    I installed the Gigabyte OC Guru software and like it's simplicity, but it does not interact with Logitech LCD screens or as an transparancy, and it's Ctr-F1 shortcut does not work here.
    MSI Afterburner is just fine but a bit boring after using it from it's first version...

    Now a question:

    did anybody find the TIM (thermal paste) on the Gigabytes to be bad or not well applied? I didn't check and I am curious... (my temps are very good, but in the past it was my standard check, this time I was to anxious to play with it)

    Amen! I test these cards for a living so I'm constantly swapping out. I just went from an HD6990+HD6970 Trixfire setup. Talk about noisy! These GTX680's are near silent even at full tilt!

    I am having the stuck 3d clocks issue on a single GTX 680.
    After leaving a 3d program, the card does not return to 2d clocks.

    I have made sure to set mouse program, web browser and anything else to adaptive power management, and it will not cease.

    Rebooting is the only way to fix it.
