PoV/TGT GTX 680 review, Air Cooling vs. Water Cooling - Overclocking

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Silence either way

 

Despite the GTX 680 4GB Beast’s watercooling, our overclocking didn’t yield significantly better results than those we scored with the air cooled GTX 680 4GB Ultra Charged. Naturally, watercooling alone is no guarantee for success, because the GPU requires more power for extreme clocks. Both cards managed to hit Base GPU clock of beyond 12010MHz, as the GPUZ shot below shows.

It appears Nvidia’s Boost technology runs better on the water cooled card. If you look at the GPUZ shot, you’ll see that the difference between Base and Boost clocks is 65MHz on the UC and 92MHz on the Beast.
