How stable are those clocks?
Core 1282 (For SLI are my absolute max Stable) Memory 1701 can go higher.
My Master/Top card is able to overclock to Core 1306Mhz stable. (I have not found the max Core speed yet)
The bottom card is the one holding me back.... Max can hit 1282 Mhz Core (1290 sometimes can make it though but it is not stable)
OOPs I said I would post this here but I posted it in the Skyrim thread on accident..lol.. Fighting a fire giant at level 15, on expert mode. He will one shot kill me..lol.. Fun stuff..
This is my GTX 680 with all the best graphical mods I could find, as well as the giant giants and mammoths mod installed.
1080p ultra ++ settings & ini modifications.
I can't wait till next month, I'll be getting into WCing and be replacing my 5870 with a GTX 680. Heavily modded Skyrim will be the first thing I play, my poor 5870 can't handle it at my current resolution.
Looks really nice man.... I have never played the game. How is it?
The game is phenomenal if you like the RPG world. Let me put it this way. I absolutely love Mass effect and this game is it's only competitor imo. I have Batman Archam city, just sitting in the corner, waiting to be played, what a sin.. Skyrim "with the mods", is just all kinds of awesome. I can't do it justice with words.
I'm going to be doing almost the same, going to try that hybrid Air/Water cooling unit, coming out at the end of this month, that Sneeky pointed me too.
Freakin 180 bucks but eh, should be worth it.
Yea, I'm thinking the same thing. I try to cap my fps at 60.. The card runs hot once it gets going. If you work it to hard, it will hit 80c I bet..
That's going to hurt the lifetime of the card for sure.
You should play Batman Arkhma City and tell me how it compares..... if you tell me it is as good as that game.... Well I will run out and steal the game from my local gamers shop
Hey guys, this is listed on the TPU graphics reviews but it's very worth a read. Gives an excellent comparison between a 670 and 680 in the same test conditions with different clock settings.
Conclusion is no surprise but an excellent piece for GTX 6xx owners and prospective buyers.
Thanks for both the articles guys..... I will post them on the front page later today.
Articles posted.... Good finds guys... this will really give a lot of people input!
This is my max stable overclock at my 670's stock voltage of 1.175 V.
1313 MHz core (I know the boost clock does not say that, but in game, the core clock goes to 1313 and stays there) / 1507 MHz memory.
Welcome to the club, helloWorld! That is an insane overclock you have there! Beats some of our 680 scores posted here! I hope Nvidia has an answer for us 680 owners. Give us unlocked voltages!
Just seen this thread so thought I would join in (although technically I could have done before now...)
Mmmmmm card sandwich
Finally a shot of them in my case:
After finding a single GTX680 overclocked to 1185/6800 somewhat lacking overall in Surround gaming -BF3 was fine but Crysis with CCC lvl 6 and texture mods seriously wasn't - 23fps average - I decided to treat myself to 2 Asus Direct CU II 670's.
Absolutely love them. Each one is as fast as my old 680 at "stock" clocks thanks to higher boost. They also clock to 1300(1280) / 6800 as well which will come in handy.
I will put a large review thread in the next couple of days comparing them to the single GTX680 and in some games a overclocked HD7970.
A quick snippet though:
BF3 @ 3600x1920 - Ultra settings with 2xAA
GTX680 @ 1185/6800 - 37FPS average
GTX670 SLI @ Stock - 58FPS average
well u get 2 gpu's to handle the games, but the same memory buffer, why not just have gone with another GTX680 so u could have SLi them?
Buying another GTX680: £420 spend
Buying 2 x GTX670 & selling 680: £650-£350* = £300 spend
Essentially it has cost me £120 less to move to GTX670 SLI than it would have done to just add a second 680. Considering the nigh on identical performance it was a no brainer.
My GTX680 was a reference 2GB model so I would still have had 2GB VRAM had I upgraded to GTX680 SLI (or a 690).
*GTX680 already sold for £350...
Welcome to the club Helloworld and Xaser04.... Your names have been added. Sorry I would've done it earlier but I was busy installing my new Gigabyte G.1 Sniper 3 Z77 (YAY) me!!!
Hey now that you got your 670's you wanna get rid of that MSI gtx 680 Xaser04 I am looking for a 3rd now with my new board
The GTX680 is already sold I'm afraid.
Damn Oh well back to finding another one
Posting new Drivers on front page as well as Beta's and older drivers.
