Other than the stock and boost core speeds, are there any differences between these 2 models of GTX 680?

Will they SLI together? If so, can they SLI together as the core speeds stand as stock, or would I need to flash them to have the same exact core speeds before they SLI?

The Microcenter model has 2x 6pin connectors, potentially lowering it's overclocking capability.

Also, if you're getting one, then what would you want for the Planetside 2 Station Cash code? Perhaps a key to Crysis 3 or Bioshock Infinite? ;D


P.S. Microcenter doesn't seem to be listed on the bundle deal, so you might want to check with them if they give out the codes or not.

I bought the microcenter 680 today, and didnt get any PS2 Station Cash sorry :(

As far as the connectors go, that must be a typo. It has 1x 8 pin, and 1x 6 pin just like my 3685KR model.

Mmm, it's worth e-mailing them about. Or e-mailing directly to Nvidia since in theory every gpu should be eligble for the bundle.
