Yup, my card was in the high 80's while I was running Heaven. Thats with my overclock too. Speaking of which, I got a steady overclock at +132%/+165/+500 while I upped the voltage in EVTune to 1.175v. I really wanted my core clock to be 1337Mhz just for the lulz alas it was not stable
EDIT: reading some of the reviews, I'm wondering if the cards they got were somehow special. No way did I ever get +150 without touching the voltage. Edited by uncholowapo - 3/24/12 at 11:14am
