Yep OCP is in hardware, only way around it atm is voltage modding or spending a lot of cash on a x79 ROG board and DCII.

VGA hotwire ftw.

However, these stock coolers are pathetic! No wonder these cards are running 70-80C.

wait, so i should replace the TIM even though AMD said not to?

You can safely ignore that. It's just reading your clocks while you are idle.

@overclocker55, what AA do you have it set to (both in CCC and in those specific games)?

With reference coolers I strongly recommend you don't do that.
The paste they use on it is pretty decent...
Also, chances are you would ruin the thermal pads that go on the VRMs.

So please... if you plan to stick to reference cooling, don't change the stock thermal paste.
