You might also want to consider slightly lower voltage, you may find that you can hit 900Mhz with a little less than 100mV overvolt which would be much cooler and is a more reasonable 24/7 OC, with two of those bad boys you really don't need to push for every last MHz. You have plenty of power and the extra few MHz is really just a mental thing of seeing how far you can go, really not necessary.

What the other poster mentioned about the switches is this, check on the top edge of the card there will be a two position switch with one of it's positions outlined in white (the position toward the front of the case, away from the rear I/O) if it's not in that position then flip it into that position. You can verify if it's in the wrong position by looking at MSI afterburner and seeing if it says 580 CBB FIX which means that switch is in the wrong position. These switches are fairly easy to flip when handling the card or even just removing it from the anti-static bag. But make sure that you only change that one switch on the top of the card that is out in the open, there are 304 more switches ont he back that are covered by yellow film that will void the warranty if broken so leave those alone. No warranty voiding or anything else to be scared about by flipping the top uncovered switch.

If that BIOS switch is in the correct position already and you at only at 772 then as alex said it's either a BIOS flash or RMA to solve that.
Just fired up my new build and sure enough the Core clock was at 772MHz. Then I read your awesome post and checked my cards and sure enough they were both set to LN2 Bios. Flipped the switches and I'm at stock 832MHz Core! Thanks a ton for your input!

Hey, ive got the same issue with my card. Im bit of a newbie to this, so PLEASE bare with me. My card is running at 832 mhz when i keep it in the LN2 position and 772 mhz when i keep it in the original position. The CBB Fix occurs when i keep it in the original position. I suspect that the bios positions have been reversed. I do not understand what you mean by asking MSI to send a 832 mhz bios n flashing mine. Can u put it a litttle easier?
