Try a more realistic scenario instead of furmark... Run heaven for an hr at least..
Furmark dont do no good for your card other than to stress the crap out with an unrealistic payload, same method as PRIME/IBT on cpus but not as efficient...
Furmark has proven not to detect a bad overclock either... It will crash if is a extreme overclock other than that no good to check a good overclock that needs to be adjusted by a little..
In the other hand PRIME/IBT are good for testing overclocks specially IBT..
I was testing my card yesterdy and today and with LI power at 0 and stock voltages i can do 1225/1800... I will sacrifice a couple of mhz on the memory to lower my temps as i dont see the need of that much i think 1600 will do just fine, dont see a significant increase of performance with 300mhz extra on them..
You dont buy and watercool a vidcard to run furmark on it, it is good just for testing some configurations other than that it is useless..
I will do a loop of furmark if i spent alot of money on a water cooling setup to be honest, but realistic talking no game is going to put that huge amount directly to burn your card like furmark does...
