My gpu temps were still maxing out at 40-47 though considering you have 2 I guess that makes sense for the extra 10degrees, this heat is killer, I definitely notice now the my pc is down how much heat she gives off
I am using the AC but she is dying. I can't get the house to cool to 75 anymore, so my room, which is the farthest corner of the unit is 87~90F with my computer running.
I actually just set up a portable AC unit in the room not 60 minutes ago, and we have reached 75F and it feels frigid!

Crysis 2 in full DX11 high res, plays like butter at 2560 x 1600 where as this overclock on the other bios, was stuttery for some reason. Not sure what you did but even Witcher 2 is playing like a dream.
Thanks for putting so much effort into the 590 scene, I might try increasing my OC, what actually makes this bios special? Currently stable (Furmark, 3dMark11, Games) on 700Mhz, 1800Mhz . No throttling in sight. Happy as Larry. Cheers mate I owe you a beer or two
Nice, make it either British Ale or German Wheat Beer
It really was nothing, but this ex-sailor will take a beer any day

while Crysis 2 is downloading i can test stability only on these benchmarks
after 3Dmark11 voltage and GPU Clock were strange - in GPU-Z 533MHz @ 0.9v under load; in furmark 700MHz @ 0.963v under load but result shows 533MHz @ 0.9v (score and fps were as before 3Dmark11 with 700MHz @ 0.963v); in afterburner graphs 700MHz @ 0.963v under load but 700MHz / 50MHz (GPU1 / GPU2) first 10-15 secs of idle right after load
That is very strange, perhaps lower the overclock (after a reboot.) Any chance the driver crashed? Its been known to stay in kind of a safe mode, or PDL Mode 3, but a reboot fixes it.

Your BIOS has been uploaded ReignsOfPower Specials. Be sure, you especially, to monitor temps, 100% is already unlocked for you, but if you find the temps start increasing (keep it under 90 at the most) go back to stock for a bit.
Don't forget, nobody has proven anything with Specials. They are another attempt to get past 700 MHz like we used to be able to @ 0.963v.
@All, Please don't forget that I am human, I have made a lot of BIOSes, and if I have forgotten a request, please post again. I feel like I have caught up to date.
I spoke with Juggalo, and I thought it would be great to have another post showing how simple it is to install a water block, and what to look out for when doing it. Most everyone already on water feel free to add their experiences, I know I have a few tips in dealing with HydroCoppers excessive restriction, that I only found out about after the purchase
Also of note, I have heard rumors there will be an AXP aftermarket cooler for the GTX 590. What a beast that will be!
