MSI N770 Lightning Testing ( GTX 770 Lightning )

West Des Moines,IA (USA)
Hello all, I have been testing the MSI 770L, and I am going to be posting here my findings. Having tested MSI's 680TF, 670PE, and 660 that this is one hell of a card.

Also, due to the fact that my drivers were pre-release I am going to be re-testing with the official version here asap...
I unfortunately realized this when I was testing that I didn't update the driver that I downloaded before testing.

Please feel free to ask for specific tests you want to see and I will try to make that happen if I am able to.

*Please note that a proper Afterburner version for the 770L is going to be released fairly soon as HQ is still working on it.*

= Benchmark Results =
CPU: Intel 4670 ES
Cooling: Corsair H100
Mobo: Z87 MPOWER
DDR3: G.Skill F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM
SSD: Corsair Force 3 120GB
GPU: MSI N770 Lightning
PSU: Corsair HX 650W

Most of these were run at 5GHz w/ 1300MHz mem and stock GPU settings. some of them will show I was posting it a bit more. When the 770L afterburner is ready I will be pushing this much more ( that and I will have a custom *AB X.X.X -ryan* version that is completely unlocked )


I put the results in a easier to view gallery on my site HERE

Sorry about that - I will run it soon, and it is actually the only one I don't have a license for ( to run other modes)...that is on my to-do list still
Just run performance mode... since its free :)
