10 k|ngp|n achieves 1442MHz core clock on air cooled GTX 680

Overclocking expert k|ngp|n has been tinkering a lot with his EVGA GTX 680 SC card lately and recently reported his result of a whopping 1957MHz on the core using extreme cooling measures.

Overclocking expert k|ngp|n has been tinkering a lot with his EVGA GTX 680 SC card lately and recently reported his result of a whopping 1957MHz on the core using extreme cooling measures.

Since then he moved onto seeing what he could do with a more day to day setup, confining himself to air cooling and reaching for the skies once again. Despite the more limited cooling properties in place, the card still managed to handle being boosted from the default frequency of 1058MHz (1124MHz Boost) to 1.44GHz.

05 k|ngp|n achieves 1442MHz core clock on air cooled GTX 680

You can see in the screenshot grab that k|ngp|n had applied 1.212v to the card which is the highest voltage limit set by NVIDIA, while the memory frequency sat at 1812MHz (or 3623MHz effective).

The platform used for the result was Intel's i7-3960X, overclocked just shy of 5GHz and the system memory at 1245MHz (2490MHz). The result of this overclock allowed k|ngp|n to achieve a 3DMark 11 score of P12745.

Quite the impressive feat. from k|ngp|n yet again given it was done on air.
