Actually, I take that back. My overclocks on air was my completely stable overclock. Lower temps don't mean much for overclocking the GTX 680's. However, I find it odd that I can be stable at some games and benchmarks with higher overclocks that aren't stable for others.

I got my temps up to 45C after some Metro 2033. :)


Yea it's odd. On my 570, I can hit 1000mhz and Heaven/OCCT and gaming is great, but 3DMark11 craps out after a minute or two. Lowering to 975core makes everything ok. *shrugs*

Mine's the same. I can run everything fine in most applications when overclocked to max, except for heaven. It always wants me to lower by 10 or so

nice temps there El capitan. So we have proven here that watercooling for a GTX 680 is hardly necessary. :lol:

Nice overclocks though. Im impressed.

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"

If that does not fix it I hop in a Timber Wolf and Blast it to microscopic Particles.
