I ran some benches before and then after installing the new card and it's made quite a difference. Playing Crysis 2 at extreme and getting a solid 60FPS (Vsync enabled) is very nice. I've clocked the card at 1000Mhz and the memory at 1350Mhz without adjusting the voltage. Just got done playing Crysis 2 for 3 hours after running some benches and no problems at all so far, so I think it's pretty solid at that overclock.
I did notice that the card gets up to 72C when either playing Crysis for long periods of time or running the Heaven bench at max settings, is this high? Should I tweak the fan settings a bit?
Anyway just wanted to chime in and say so far I'm very pleased, think this card should do me for awhile.

You and I are the same haha. But yeah. The max my card has gotten is 72C as well. Doesn't go higher, but I think it is normal.

Man I am struggling with these Sapphires! I can't get anything higher than 1240MHz/1800MHz in Heaven 3.0 which resulted in an avg fps of 115.7. That's nearly 4fps slower than my Lightnings were at just 1220MHz/1750MHz. I can't figure out what the hell is going wrong? I'm running the latest beta driver (8.982.0.0) and my temps are great under water (maxed voltage at 1382mV in Trixx which is really about 1290mV in GPU-z) and temps never got over 55C. Should I try different drivers? This is a fresh Win7 install with very little on it so far. Any ideas on how to squeeze out a few more fps?

Bear in mind when you raise to 20%, you may not be fully stable anymore, because now the card will be working in full power in every game.
Because with that clocks and voltage and with 0% power tune, i am 100% sure that card is not running in its full power in most intensive games, like Crysis 2, BF3, Metro 2033 and so on, bear in mind that i had with 0% power tune downclocking in Metro 2033 even on 900 MHz (stock clocks), let alone anything higher. For full stability, that slider must be at its maximum.

I've always just put the power limit to +20 on all my bench runs. Do you guys think I may somehow get a tiny boost if I leave that at 0?

It depends on bench, and how much voltage, because voltage is in direct relation with power usage, power usage is in direct relation with power tune. You can experiment.

what version of afterburner do you have?

1 install msi AB 2.20 reboot
2 do not start afterburner
3 on the desktop shortcut right click and go to properties
4under the shortcut tab by target type in after the " -xcl so should look like this "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\MSIAfterburner.exe" -xcl (space in between " -xcl)
5 start afterburner it will give a pop that your clocks have exceeded
6reboot and remove the -xcl command from the target and start msi afterburner
7 now unistall and install what ever version of msi and apply the above steps

bear in mind that unofficial overclocking must not be applied if it is revert back before doing this
if you had v2.20 installed previously try the -xcl command on your current version

So i realised that it's impossible to overclock both core and ram at the same time. I can reach 1000 Mhz at 1050mV vcore and run one hour crysis bench.
I can reach 1400 Mhz for RAM for the same bench duration.
But both overclocked always end in grey / green vertical lines. I'm using 12.4 Catalyst.

Any idea what the hell is going on ?
