Hello boys

Someone would be so expert and informed on these cards, to make a list from most to least overclocked out of the box cards ?

Because I noticed that some are more and others less...

Just for the 680 models.

Thanks :rockout:

I have heard of some models hitting 1245mhz, mine hit 1215mhz any higher and it would crash.

some only get +15mhz, those are the real duds lol

I understand that they are already 'on the edge.

I intend to do a ranking of brands and models that differ in clock speeds are a few more overclocking than others.

But i believe that the most aggressive is the ASUS Direct Cu 2 TOP.

Hi

The POV UT dose not attain the high clocks of the Asus GTX680-DC2T-2GD5

Nice all the same:toast:

TGT-680-A1-2-UC - 2GB POV GTX 680 Ultra Charged, 28nm, PCIe 3.0 (x16), 6008MHz GDDR5, GPU 1110MHz, Boost 1176MHz, Cores 1536, DP, HDMI

TGT-680-A1-2-BST-W - 2GB POV GTX 680 Beast Watercooled 28nm, PCIe 3, 6008MHz GDDR5, GPU 1058MHz, Boost 1110MHz, Cores 1536, 2xDL DVI,DP, HDMI

and EVGA pip it at the post with

EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper

EVGA announces immediate availability of the EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper. This card offers a preinstalled Hydro Copper Waterblock, and reduces the GPU operating temperature by as much as 50%. Additionally, the EVGA GeForce GTX 680 is optimized for overclocking with a 5 Phase PWM Design and 8pin + 6pin power connectors. The EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper ships with increased clockspeeds of 1215MHz (boost clock) and 1150MHz (base clock). The memory has further been tuned with a stock frequency of 6300MHz.

I thought they had already finished the series with the GTX 680 EXO out a week ago.



The POV Beast will definitely cooled to liquid so we talk about 799 dollars card ... Wich is very expensive for me...

thanks guys for the useful links...

But for that price POV could put a backplate too !

The Evga Hydrocopper comes with backplate, i think that is worth more.

Thanks masterinvader i immediately thought that this is the most aggressive clock frequencies ...

If it were not for the appearance in my opinion is worth all of its $ 799. Need to save alot of money to get one...

With these clock frequencies i think it will last at least 2 or 3 years in more than one stock
