Would this be a valid reason for RMA? It may just be a glitch, but annoying as hell. I can't even overclock because I don't know if I'm hitting my TPD limit.

you could always ship me your dc2 and me ship you my wf3 biggrin.gif hahahahahaha

If it wouldn't have the same issue as mine I'd be happy too if NCIX doesn't accept it!

All the Power limit is going to do is cause the card to throttle, it isn't going to affect yuor overclocking in any other way (what I mean is that it shouldn't stop you from overclocking). Put the power limit all the way up and just overclock as normal - what the power number actually says is kind of irrelevant unless you have actual issues like throttling. And everything I've seen elsewhere shows it as a software bug, not a card bug.

So anyone know about the MemtestCL program posted by someone above?

Thanks for the explanation. It actually went up from 34% to 40% so I guess that's progress. tongue.gif

Got a quick question though regarding oscillation:

If my line is a stable 1150MHz then for a couple of settings it goes up to 1163Mhz and back to 1150, is that a sign of instability?

No, that's normal. It is either temp or power (or load) changing the boost clock.

So when do I tell if it is the bad type of oscillation? Instead of going up 13MHz, would it drop down 13? Would I also see if repeatedly instead of the couple of seconds I saw it for?

It would drop from 1163 to 1063 or 924 or something. The small 13Mhz steps are no big issue. Can't really see from your screenshot, but did you increase the power target in Precision? You normally see those 13MHz drops when you hit 70C, or when you hit the power limit.

Yup. Set to 122%. And thanks for the explanation. Temps never exceed 59C.
