I'd say the ~1.36v Afterburner 2.2.3 gives you is perfectly safe. My temps stay quite low at this voltage, and I doubt any degredation will happen, especially within the timeframe when you'll upgrade a few years from now. Trying the edit...well that's another story, and obviously not for 24/7 use. I don't think it's worth it on my cards since they didn't gain much, but even at 1.43v I was able to keep temps at a safe level for benching.

the term 24/7 does not apply unless you plan on gaming 24/7. once at idle the card down volts and downclocks. Nothing to fear

ok so ive been playing with my card and have been wondering what does it mean when your in game but it doesnt crash just stutters for 15 seconds and then my clocks go down to 1006 as if i wasnt in a game?? unstalbe overclock? I have it to +120 which is 1200 after the downclock and it runs fine put my memory up to 500 and it soft locks restart pc and set memory to 250 funs fine.. how much of a factor is memory in overclocking fps wise? I might as well just run my memory at stock?? and what program will tell you without spending hours of testing for sure if your oc is unstable???? i run 3dmark11 and heaven3.0 maxed out for hours fine and then bf3 crashs...

Memory helps out a lot in my testing of Kepler. Try backing off some until you're 100%. To get the most out of your core oc, with Kepler you do need some kind of oc on the memory to increase bandwidth.

This card is awesone, my CPU was "only " oced to 4500MHz though..

^I'm not attacking this guy, but this is a prime example of WHY you should overclock the memory. He has a VERY high core of 1399MHz, but because he didn't overclock the memory enough, his performance is being bottlenecked.

My card was clocked @ 1346MHz, but because of the increased memory oc, my card performed better.

Hi, I know, you ve got the point here , I know-but I was trying to OC one part at the time- the memory will follow.
No hard feeling on my part, really...thumb.gif

im having a huge issue with art money. now it seems my card is running 1.4 at idle and 1.6+ under any load what so ever. i cannot seem to revert the changes. Ive tried switching bios to no avail. soon as the system boots the card jumps to 1.6 and hold then drops to 1.4. as i type this the card is showing 1.402 volts.... does anyone have an idea how to fix this? im looking at an rma otherwise as its a ticking time bomb at this voltage level.

Cool, no prob. I wasn't trying to call you out, just using an example. thumb.gif Btw, that's a very nice card you have there.

I thought voltage was supposed to revert back to normal after a restart when using artmoney, can you go back into the editor & edit it back to the way it was?
