    I might start clocking my 680 this weekend even though it already runs everything I need perfectly. I want 1300-1350 on my card. Wonder how cooling will hold up though. My card gets kind of loud near 60%

    My FTW 670 is still blasting thru everything I throw at it and running completely silent.

    I thought about it; but then I turned my global power management in the Nvidia panel to 'adaptive' and it made no change.

    I reinstalled drivers over the current ones and it seems to be ok now.

    Thanks though

    AIDA64 (not latest build but my paid update period is over):
    GFX670 does only report
    - GPU Fan speed
    - GPU temp
    - GPU Voltage

    But Voltage is in fact indicative of MHZ ranges... 0,99 V is idling, 1,18 V is Load.

    Just FYI...

    And remember, latest internet browsers and Flash want the GPU to run in 3D mode for their convenience/propaganda...

    Windowed modes causing 'stutter'

    I am noticing a lag/stutter/hitch in games when using windowed mode stretched to full screen size or 'fake' full screen windowed mode. The frames per second are 60 constantly, even while this happens. Best way to notice it is if you stand still and something moves by on screen, like snow or rain. It will be smooth and then there will be that moment something just doesn't flow correctly, then it goes back to seeming ok. There's no time that passes until it happens again, nor does it last for a specific duration.

    If I switch to actual full screen it goes away.

    Single Gigabyte 680 on 306.02 drivers.

    It's almost similar to the weird anomaly we experienced in Skyrim, where you'd have 60 fps and when moving the camera around *particularly up and down* you'd get this stutter/shake effect (something related to the frame refreshing?). Using a program like Dxtory and capping at 59 frames solved the issue. However that was in full screen only. It would seem windowed modes create their own problem exclusively.

    Is this just one of the downsides to windowed modes?

    The irony is that I don't want to start using any windowed modes for multi monitor browsing or etc.; it's so that I can get the color profile to work in-game since Direct X titles override color schemes in Windows while in full screen.
    ATi Tray tools had a hotkey option to let you manually apply while in a program, but Nvidia's control panel does not, which is why I've resorted to playing in fake full screen modes.

    I wish Nhancer was still supported.

    Got my Evga GTX680 Signature 2 card overclocked today. Stopped at 1275 core and 6408 memory for right now. Will continue tomorrow. Hoping I can do 1300-1325mhz on the core. I only needed to bump my power target to +110% for 1275 to keep it running at that.

    Thinking about experimenting with water cooling for my 680. Ive always wanted to try water cooling, but it was expensive, and now that I have a high paying job, I think I might start looking at parts for it.

    I'm not in your club but water cooling is addictive.

    We have a TPU clubhouse for it.

    I've heard varied things about cooling the 680's (i.e. you don't need water) but if you like silence and want to make a hobby out of your PC, then water is the way. As long as you dont cock it up!

    Its just the Evga dual fan cooler gets kind of loud passed 55% and so I dont like the fan getting up near there, and then the temepratures get up to 70c and such so.

    Are you thinking of putting just the GPU on water or the CPU too?


    LOL!

    Just the GPU right now, as my 2500k runs at like 50c max at 4.5ghz.

    Alphacool NexXxos UT60. I need something thicker, double pass, and that doesnt need fans that run at 2000rpm to keep temps down.
