Things about my new GTX680..

So I just switched my WHINY 7970 for a GTX680 for around 120$ more.
Don't know if its worth it tho. Just played Conquest Domination on Scrapmetal, 48 players on Ultra and got around 70FPS something like that.
The temp keeps flying up to around 80C when gaming and it's on 100% usage, and I don't feel that much of a diff between that and the 7970.
Is that normal? It SHOULD beat it.
Got it OC'ed at:
Power Limit (%) 132
Core clock +111
Mem clock +100
Fan speed on 50.
Cant change voltage for some reason.
Using the MSI but the cheapest one. Not twin razor or whatever, just the plain MSI 680, because that's the only one they had and was on BF.
Did I make a wise choice?

  1. Is this FPS ok? The coil whine is virtually none existant over the 7970, I thought even if it had the same performance I better get the none-hear-impairing card.
  2. The 670 easily overclocks to the 680's area, and the 7970 competes with the 680, it only figures if the 7970 is hitting the same area as a 680, you made a mistake, you needed to have done more research.

    I couldn't PLAY or even have my computer ON from all that coil whine. And I get 15-20 FPS more on the 680.

    Only MSI power edition and MSI lightning can tweak voltage. In some cases twin frozr should also be capable of doing it, but I'm sure they're not meant to, because my old GTX 560 ti Twin Frozr died on me when I tweaked with the voltages.

    It wasnt the GHz edition.
    It was a crappy Sapphire one.
    I am getting from 10-20 more FPS now on BF3 and can run H:A just fine, while NOT being deaf.
  7. Basically, I couldnt stand the whine of the 7970 so I just switched it to a 680. No whine, more costly and slightly better performance, I think.
