I think it is only when you are really pushing the card. Mine did not like temps above about 67c on air if I remember. But that was with much higher clocks.

Appreciate the feedback. What are the max temps the card can withstand on Core/VRMs for 24/7 use if I don't see artifacts or have hard locks?

85c should be fine as far as I know.

I am getting 74C Load in BF3 with fan ~ 48%. 1150/1575 @ 1.2v. I am not sure why but i was expecting this card to OC more. There was so much hype when they came out. I feel like AMD did this in purpose. They could have easily released this cards @ 1.05v @ 925Mhz and leave no OC headroom until you pump up the voltage.

I don't know what you've been reading, but that's a good overclock for air while keeping the fan bearable.

I can get 1125 at 1.2v, or 1150 at 2.4, or 1200 at 2.6. But at 2.6v, I still get artifacts in OCCT, and the temps SKYROCKET under serious load (the real reason I run OCCT - nothing heats up my card quite like it). It will run heaven, but the FPS gain is like...2, so I dropped it back to 1125. Memory on the other hand...I've had no problem with. I'm at 1700 at 1.64, and I haven't found any real issue in temps increasing my memory voltage, while increasing performance (albeit moderately). That is about a 15-20 fps increase in my heaven benchmark over stock, for reference.

With that, and a more or less cap at 40% fan, I never really get about 72C, and it doesn't seem to affect my stability. I was running BOINC for 48 straight and at ~98% load last week, and playing TF2 and league of legends on top of it, and it didn't seem to be too much of a problem for the card.

From a detached perspective, that's normal, and some people are getting much better. When you look vs. stock, it's like a 20-25% increase in performance (according to programs like heaven). I know what I said about the 2 fps, but the "score" increase was higher, even bumping up just 75 mh. I think why everyone revels in these cards is that the OC's they get give them gives such linear returns, not that they OC to 1400.

...now if I can ever put the thing under water...devil.gif

Yeah. On a related note - does it play ME3 effectively? Or are there still driver crashes with it?

I just tried to fire up the ME3 demo and it wont launch now. Either will Dirt 3. I uninstalled Dirt 3 and redownloaded it and it still wont launch. I'm wondering if that's because of this 12.X Feb28 driver. I had no issues with the RC11 driver. Everything else was working so well, but these are not launching now and I'm thinking of trying the 12.2 whql. You guys think I should give it a go or should I try something else to get these games to launch?

No ME3, but Dirt3 works on rc11 here. I was surprised the scaling works now lol. GPUs all pegged 142fps on 3 screens on ultra 4x. I don't play it much anymore to go back and bother with 8x hehe. thumb.gif
