and the loop ran for 40 minutes OK - had to put the fan on 60% to keep it cool /52C/ .
I m starting really to like this card !!
Try running on the LN2 BIOS with the fan speed at 100%. You will hit a way higher clock, especially if you're maxing out the voltage sliders.
I had the F8 BIOS on my other 2 cards, this one came with the 3A so I kept it for testing. I like it a lot better because I don't have to reset the computer every crash. I found my max clock with the stock voltages, then bumped the core voltage and it gave me a higher overclock everytime, even after getting into edit voltages. So, if you want to cut right to the chase and find your max overclock for benches like Heaven or 3dMark11, I would just switch to the LN2 BIOS and throw the voltage slider all the way up and then slowly increase the clocks till you crash.
Going slow will give you max overclocks for each voltage increment, so you can pick the most efficient overclock depending on how demanding the game is you happen to be playing at that particular time. But yeah as long as you don't live in an oven and can keep temps cool at +93mv, I would just save time when looking for your max overclock by going right for that +93mv voltage and then test clocks.
That's a great clock for such a low voltage. You should be running 1400mhz just fine on the LN2 BIOS. Without the edit I hit 1430mhz/7000mhz-
