**TPU's GTX 600 Series Owners Club**

*Note Decided to open to all GTX 600 Series Cards.

Requirements....
Must own a GTX 600 Series Video card (Any make model or color)

Ahh Shoot your Right! Maybe we can get a moderator to change that. I completely forgot about that section. I'll send a shout out to a couple of them.

Nice.What kind of oc do you get on water?
I can run about 1285Mhz Stable (1295Mhz Max) I am limited on voltage not Temps. The max Temps I have seen on an 80 degree day were 38c top card. That was overclocked running EVGA OC Scanner

After thought.... Would it be better to open it up to all GTX 600 series owners???

Happy GTX 680 owner here :)

Although I have to admit its a shame that there is a somewhat low limit on the voltage. Max temperatures I've seen on my card is 53° C but I can't pass 1205 MHz without getting TDRs. :(

These cards definitely feel voltage deprived lol.

looks rubbish compared to 20mm but i'll just blame it on my phone camera,

I too wish these could have more voltage, Does anyone know if anyone else apart from EVGA will be making backplates? i think they look awesome but seems wrong to put EVGA backplate on mine when its not

well i was thinking about an EVGA card, but they was always out of stuck and always every since i had money for a GTX680 and Palit's JetStream GTX 680 came too late so i am after a cooler but i dunno maybe the new closed water cooler from AC or a Gelid Icy Vision again bcs Tardan showed me it can be mounted even i only want my card to still be only 2 slots.

Thats funny got a second card??? LOL Wanna trade :D

On a separate note.... I guess this as good as time as any to dive in to a GTX 680 conversation.....

I am noticing everyone posting their screen shots with their clocks and overclocks. I would love to do that but for some reason.... my clocks don't represent correctly in GPU-Z. Here's what I mean....

Under the main tab it reads:
Base Clock: 1006
Boost Clock: 1059 >Just like everyone else.

But my cards (because of Nvidia's Boost technology) Actually run at
Base Clock:1006
Boost Clock: 1124 >No I did not flash the BIOS

It shows the correct higher Clocks under the GPU-Z Sensors Tab
It also shows the correct higher clocks under EVGA On Screen Display, EVGA Precision X and half a dozen other monitoring programs....
But it does not show the correct clocks (Stock or While Overclocked) under GPU-Z Main Tab

I am fairly confident that the higher clocks are correct.... (because several other programs are showing the higher clocks.) I have also heard and read that just because Nvidia says the GTX 680's clocks are 1006 and 1059 that does not mean that people won't receive cards that actually run higher then Nvidia's Minimum clocks. (As long as your card stays under Nvidia's thermal limit your cards can keep in creasing by so many MHZ)
It's just frustrating I can't show my real overclock as easily....If you look at GPU-z Main page it will show a
Boost clock of 1220Mhz (When in reality)
its a boost clock of 1285Mhz

Like I said I have talked with overs in other forums experiencing this... and I am sure I have figured out why.... but is anyone else here at TPU experiencing something like this?.

yeah i get similar, mine goes up to 1226 i think then drops down to 1215 when the temps creep up. but gpu-z shows 1203.

As far as i know nvidia have set it to have a maximum boost of 1124 if the temps are low enough for them to think its safe, as your under water that would be why. the 53Mhz boost GPU-z reads is the minimum the card will boost

thx Tardan for confirming that a Gelid Icy Vision can fit on a reference GTX 680 pcb.
My pleasure, glad to help :)

I have the exact same symptoms. Not sure why it does that, the only way I can figure out my true boost clock is by enabling the OSD on Precision X. I get a rock solid 1256 MHz when I'm playing games or benchmarking on the OSD. In GPU-Z, it only says 1204 MHz boost clock. It's only a minor issue for me, but it would be nice to know why it happens.
