Well I really wanted to wait till I had it 100% complete, but since MUYA jumped the gun by creating this thread... well here's what I got:

Erotic!?!? I'm certain I've no idea what you're talking about. :lol:

That's not the reaction I was expecting! :o :lol:

I was hoping for more ":wtf:'s" than anything. :p :captnkill:

Stock first


had to rerun this because I got 60k, but forgot PhysX was on.

lol from a die hard OC fan


I got to stop trying to fool myself.... these cards are crap for the modder.
Like a mac of the overclock world....sell sell sell

That right i said it...
lets see
COLD air does squat
Bios mod..not happenig
Voltage with software...not really
Hard mods ok np but if you dont put half an ass from another card on it its done might as well put right in fireplace.
it runs two benches "okish"
that all adds up to POS


& he dropped by overclock.net

Yeah, these are not the cards to buy if you want to overclock. You can't even flash a different bios as they are all digitally signed by nvidia/aibs.

Is anyone without a review card getting that 1300mhz core I've seen posted around? By athlon i think...not too sure though it was in one of these 680 threads.

Re: Official GeForce GTX 680 Benchmark Thread!
Jacob from evga dropped by Overclock.net 680gtx OC thread and said they might release a "OC fiendly" 680gtx with 6+8pcie and full 5PWM in the near future.

Looks like these first ones really are hindered and can't be OC'ed more then ~ 1200-1300mhz.

We could try to show absolute value, but it wouldn't be right.
Do you have any idea about how the upgraded PCBs will affect the overclocking potential? Do these cards need more power to get a good overclock, or are we pretty much at the maximum potential as is? It doesn't seem like moving the slider to 132% gives much of an overclock right now, so I have my doubts that going with 2x8 PCI-E connectors will have much benefit, especially if we can't mess with voltages anyway.

Thanks for taking the time to browse the forums. EVGA has never let me down.

Or Nvidia did it intentionally and said sorry no Oc for you lol (lee)

Galaxy 4gb with custom PCB spotted, now this looks interesting :)



Galaxy and KFA2 are working on a new GeForce GTX 680 graphics card.

The photo's show a Galaxy GTX 680 4 GB based on a non-reference design. The card comes with a factory clock at 1.10 GHz (base, boost not mentioned).

The PCB uses a 5+2 phase VRM, which draws power from 6+8 pin power connectors. The VRM appears to make use of International Rectifier-made DirectFETs. Perhaps Galaxy also went off-spec with the VRM controller, and maybe it supports a software interface.

The cooler is an in-house design by Galaxy, too. It consists of a large heat-pipe fed aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 90 mm fans. Have a peek:

Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 Hall of Fame Edition

Apart from the GeForce GTX 680 4 GB, NVIDIA's major AIC partner Galaxy, is also working on the GTX 680 Hall of Fame (HOF) Edition. Galaxy uses the "HOF" marker to designate its highest-grade custom-design products, with the highest out of the box OC, and headroom. Galaxy unveiled an unfinished prototype of this card, along with a presentation of what it will look like, when finished, at a media event in China. The card will use the same exact cooling assembly as the one used on its GTX 580 Multi-Display graphics card. This cooler uses a complex set of aluminum fin heatsinks to which heat is conveyed by copper heat pipes, and which are ventilated by three 90 mm fans. The cooler shroud is illuminated by blue LEDs.

Under the cooler of GTX 680 HOF, is a milky-white PCB (Galaxy is known for white PCBs on high-end graphics cards). The card uses an 8+2+2 phase VRM, which reportedly makes use of International Rectifier DirectFETs, and high-grade chokes, although still an analog design. The VRM controller will be Galaxy's custom GX31 chip, with software voltage control, voltage monitoring, and power-draw monitoring. The card draws power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
The card will also feature a dual-BIOS design to insure against bad BIOS updates. Apart from hard consolidated voltage measurement points, the card features a header for what's called "OC Panel", a physical tweaking gadget, similar to EVGA EVBot. Apart from this, there's a heavily updated Magic Panel software, with a boatload of settings. Galaxy did not give out its clock speeds information, but one can bet on the card having a massive OC headroom. Galaxy did not give out a launch time-frame
