    Overclocking 680 SC ?


    How high can I overclock a 680, that is already as claimed Super Clocked ? What is the best software, I don't really have to much interested in a newer card as I believe I won't see that much of an increase.

    Use MSI afterburner.

    I read that the 580 is a little faster then the 680, if that is true, can I over clock the 680 past the speeds of the 580, reaching closer to 690 levels, at least ? Speeds close to that will be more then accurate and fast :)

    hi jerom,

    A GTX680 is faster than a GTX580 hands down, also cooler, makes less noise and uses less power.

    check here AnandTech | Bench - GPU13

    I dont think that you can get a 680 near a 690 as the 690 has 2 of the 680's gpus.

    I use EVGA Presision on my 680's to overclock but I find the 680 at stock to be more than enough for all games @1080p. If your running a higher res it might be worth it. If you dont want to upgrade, consider another 680sc for SLI. That will be enough grunt for a few years.

    Cheers

    I've never considered SLI for the type of work I do, I can get the same power with dual SLI 680 SC as a Titan ? Yet again, why wouldn't I the cost is the same for two as one Titan :)
