    When I go Haswell i think. Still cant decide on what full tower case to go with. I really like the Cooler Master Cosmos II, but it really expensive and doesnt have enough 5.25" slots. I want a case that has the zones type of design where theres the panel that sperates the mobo area from the PSU area.

    Maybe sooner and just slap a fat 120rad into my case for the CPU, as Sandy bridge doesnt run too hot anyways. never gets higher then about 50-55 at load.

    I would totally get the Switch 810 if it had the zones thing I was talking about.

    I do really like the phantom 820 case, but theres just a lot of plastic!

    Yeah; tons of room for rads in 810. Theres also xigmatex elysium, it doesnt have the zones but its a frickin beast. Cosmos ii is an awesome case; cant beleive it only has 3 5.25 bays

    I really do like the phantom though the more I look at it. Reminds of a Lamborghini Reventon haha.

    Oh yeah; the new phantom is really nice. I have a friend with the regular phantom, its well built. I dont really like the pointy asymmetrical nose and top, but the 820 is really nice

    My 680 sucks at overclocking. Cant even get 1300mhz stable, or BF3 just bricks itself! WTF.

    I never have good luck with GPU overclocking!

    My new toy just came in today; ordered the GTX 680 Superclocked Signature+ on the 28th

    Unfortunately.. it was essentially DOA. Artifacts everywhere (During POST, Windows loading, desktop, stability testing) at stock, and while downclocked and/or overvolted. Kind of ticked off since TigerDirect.ca shipped the card from the States (Georgia) and it's $50+ to ship it back with UPS; sent a technical support e-mail to EVGA as well but I doubt they'll pay shipping to them.

    I have had pretty bad luck with cards lately, with an overheating 7970 Matrix to this DOA 680 :cry:

    Thats a bummer. Mxphenom216 has nearly the same card, and his had issues getting hot. He has it on water now tho. Evga wouldnt do an Rma?

    Thankfully I e-mailed EVGA - they were very prompt in their replies (<12 hours for each reply) and also very courteous. I got my BNIB (still in plastic wrapping) RMA card using cross-shipping today (they ship the replacement card first and I ship the defect card second) - it took four days in total, with just two e-mails being sent to them from me. Two days for the explanation, questions, and answers and two days for shipping - pretty darn good support I would say. The effort they took in packaging was also not "cheap" by any standards, with a relatively small cardboard box thoroughly filled with soft packing material. The technician who took my case also agreed to pay shipping to them; I got a pre-paid label e-mail the other day from UPS in less than 24 hours from when they agreed so that was very nice. All in all, it was a pleasant experience; I think they earned a very loyal customer.

    Here are the two cards :laugh: The PITA on the top and the new working one on the bottom. Wish they both worked so I could poke fun at SLI.

    yeah, seems like Evga kepler cards are having a lot of issues, more specifically the Signature ones. A lot of people are reporting Artifacting and Display Driver has stop responding messages with cards at stock clock right out of the box.

    new to the club

    Hey guys, im new to the club, but not a new 680 owner. Just thought i would share my OC achievement.

    I'm using the EVGA Signature+ SC edition. And these numbers are achieved using a modified BIOS i recently flashed my card with.. it raises the ceiling a little on the voltage limitations that it ships with allowing me to hit the hardware limit of 1.2125v instead of the software max of 1.175v. This is all on stock cooling, so it gets a little warm.. I was able to get it to 1356Mhz but anything above 1293Mhz is very unstable with my current cooling solution.

    At this speed I'm able to game stable for hours.. I'm pretty happy with it.

    Nice Overclock.

    Is that the new unigine? I haven't checked it out.

    Also, is that a theme for windows or what? Looks rather awesome from the bit around the edges lol

    Yeah, its the new Unigine Valley benchmark. The program itself is quicker than Heaven.. and instead of controlling tessellation on the fly you control weather effects and lens focusing.

    My desktop is made using a combination of Rainmeter and Objectdock. I tend to prefer the cleaner sleeker looks than the cluttered setup's you sometimes see on deviantart.

    Out of the five Evga cards I've owned, only one never had a problem. Thankfully Evga has the best customer service I've ever dealt with.
