Not necessarily. Takes two seconds to check if the air cooler is dusty.

Dude, my 470 took 1.125v for 750 core! If that's the correct voltage, then you sir have a golden 470 and I say keep!!!

It doesnt look dusty..my rooms dusty so theres dust in my case..which I'm trying to fight. Thought the 800D was good at dust control lol. BTW I listed the voltage wrong. It should be 0.975 V..I think lol

So how should I go about telling newegg this aint working. Should I pretend I'm an idiot and its running too hot and it don't look right my games a crashin! or what? Should I be 'assertive' and demand a good quality exchange or just pay the restocking fee and get my money back? What about return shipping? And I need a gpu so any suggestions? Are evga refurbs any better or should I just go for a 570? I dont want anything lower.. I want a card that actually deserves to be under water

So should I play with the voltages first? Whats the max safe voltage? I think the steps are 0.012V, Do I keep increasing in small steps until/IF I find something that works? Also set it to 700 core and ran unigine..came back and computer was frozen.. had it work at 730 but results were lower than when I ran unigine on stock right after install..***f...

If your card has a VID of 0.875 and will do over 700 on that voltage that is amazing. My card has a VID of 1.0V and I need 1.087V to get to 765. Change the TIM (with EVGA you can remove the cooler as long as you don't damage it but I am not sure about other brands), up the voltage to at least 1.0V and then OC it.

Okay, first of all, what's your VID? That'd be the stock voltage as reported by MSI Afterburner. If its under 1.0v, that is AMAZING! My 470 was a 1.0375v VID, and it clocked terribly.

If you're hitting 730 core with 1v or less, that is AMAZING. You could be looking at a 900+ core GPU there, and those are quite golden.

Voltages, you're safe up to around 1.10-1.125v on air, depends on temperatures. Keep the temperature as low as possible (preferrably under 90*C or less), and just keep toying with it.

EDIT:
Also for stress testing, you can try OCCT GPU stress (shader complexity 8), for a 20 minute run. If it passes 20 minutes with no artifacts you're stable as a rock.

Something doesn't add up...

875mv = 730 core = 90C = 90% fan speed = does not compute

Ok so after fooling around I was able to get an 800 core on 1.075V. Looked at atitool for about 15 mins with no artifacts popping up. Slightly less voltage or higher clock gave me a yellow dot or 2 in the first few mins but would stay clean up to 5 mins (didn't run longer). After about 8 mins temps hit 90C, maxed out at 91C with fan at 100%. Afterburner wont let me set vid higher than 1.087V. Is it worth flashing to custom bios and do I have to use one made for pny cards? Oh and occt was a bust. Didn't see any errors but I could not run it very long(max 2 mins) as temps sky rocketed into the 90s and kept climbing. Maybe I can go higher if I can get temps under control. Does the card seem decent? decent enough to put under water and see if I can get it higher?

edit..cant rep mods? +1 pioneerisloud
