Overclocking

As well as the internal GPU overclocking you can, of course, manually overclock the GTX680. We managed to get it completely stable at a mighty 1215MHz and the Memory to 6110MHz. A pretty handy boost.

Temperatures

The new cooler is a big improvement upon the old reference design, being the magical combination of cooler and quieter. Our overclock came with an overvolt, which brought the idle temperature right up, but the load temperatures remained identical whether at stock or overclocked. The silence is the big thing though. Damn this card is quiet.
