    Thanks for the reply. Locked voltage control has been frustrating, seems these cards are leaving a lot of untapped potential on the table, especially for those of us with custom water loops.

    Moving the slider after the results are displayed, isn't going to affect the results screen.

    theres zero possibility of a 7970 hitting that score with a core clock of 1005. its a tesselation cheat. turning it off in the cat and setting it to extreme in the bench lol

    Nice cheats. What exactly are you trying to prove? that you know how to disable tessellation? :puke2:

    I can be wrong, but is not the voltage range is increasing by set higher tdp limit ? basically the voltage is still automatically controlled, but you give it a higher range ? If not , this is plenty stupid.

    You're right but it's capped at a certain point and you can't take it any higher. It's basically the sole reason why I haven't bought a 680 yet. All these companies are selling cards with additional 8 pin connectors and stuff and it's all pointless, since the reference cards all max out anyway.

    Hilbert you don't have a Rampage IV Extreme to use the "VGA Hotwire" feature to control the Vgpu of the 680 DCUII and see how far the card can overclock for 24/7 usage with additional voltage ? ( I'm pretty sure that it'll be more than able to handle 1.23 - 1.25V at reasonable temperatures & sound levels for everyday gaming )

    I would hope so bill since my ref asus 680 handles 1.28v(+80mv) with just the hotwire and power mods.(h70 cooling)
    I think any modded up pbc can just fry like any other but these "should" go 1.35v(+150mv) without fear on proper cooling.

    Hotwire is nice, normal Vmods are ok as well ( as long as you're capable of soldering everything properly ), but I really can't figure out why they didn't go with software voltage control ( technically it can be done ).
    Perhaps waiting for MSI to play their cards first, or just wanting to keep it for the Matrix / Matrix P.E.

    I would sell my left nut for one of these cards. I'm as broke as a joke though and I want to play through The Witcher 2 again at 60 frames but there are no games in my library even worth playing at the moment so I'll have to go 2 playthroughs back to back and a third when I upgrade.

    Next time I'm saving in advance of a card launch, I always wait until it's too late...

    ..or at least a right nut, so maybe not be so picky?
