Just an update...
I forgot that I'd told you that I was getting the card (distracted by attempting overclocks, etc.)
I just re-did a new burn in for a second one of these cards tonight, and am going to be testing some different clocks, but one thing that I can tell you off the bat is that the voltage is locked, so there's going to be issues with it immediately just because of that.
So far I've gotten it to run at 850core, and 1150mem stable, but I'm not sure what else will be accomplishable. I'll update you more later as I come across data.
Sorry for the late response.
Here's my entire system Setup, as well as temps under different conditions.
Hope this will help you in your decision
