Click the top left corner and it will drop down some items. Go to check ASCII and it will give you a %. The higher the % the higher you'll be able to OC typically speaking.

learn something new everyday. i thought you were messing with me. ASCII is something else, its ASIC in GPU-Z

mine is 70.4% sounds average

I think it's good people are reading this. Don't get me wrong I feel bad that it happened to you but everyone should go into overclocking with a firm realization that messing with voltage in anyway can lead to hardware failure. Even if it's just a small bump or at a level considered normal.

Haha my bad, I couldn't remember exactly what it was called I guess its ASIC thumb.gif but yeah 70% is pretty average. My 580 is only 74.4%, it does 900MHz @ 1.088v.

ASIC % is meaningless. There's videocards with 60% that overclock better than others with 90%.

What do you mean the video card is banged up? Is it damaged? What voltage were you running at previously? You can edit the bios and change it back to what it was before.

there are just light scuff marks all over the heat sink and the PCI bracket is bent and gouged from screws being too tight. its not a big deal, but it obviously hasnt been handled with much care.

it was at 0.975 @ 800mhz before i started bumping up the voltage.

They only replace it with a card that WORKS, they don't guarantee the cosmetic condition of the card. I'd be happy with a working card that I got back after I sent them a non-working one.

i understand that, and after reading all the horror stories about ASUS RMA I am very glad that I got one that works. but it really isnt that hard to be careful, and you think they would be with a piece of electronic equipment.
