I was stable w/ 1250 / 1450 @ 1.225v and the stock BIOS. With the Asus BIOS I'm stable at 1300 / 1500 @ 1.26v, but that would be about it. I can bench above 1300/1500 but even with 1.3v its only barely bench-able at around 1330-1340mhz. Getting to 1350 is impossible and anything above 1500 on the memory usually results in a crash.
How am I honestly not missing too much? You got an extra 50 on both core and mem with the additional .04v - not too shabby.
Maybe I'll give it one last try this weekend...thanks for the reply, btw.
Well, my card seems to clock better than most 7850's. Anything over 1.26v doesn't really increase stability anyways. From what I hear, anything in the 1200 range is very good and most won't do anything over 1250 even with 1.3v. I think mine could actually go higher than 1300/1500 24/7, but I need to cool the VRMs better to get there.
What kinda clocks are you getting now?
