thanks! Not sure about beating you, I would love to hit just what you have!
It was a lot harder than I like to admit. Did a little self-binning. I had to make up for the very first one I had, bought on Day 1. It did 1373mhz on the stock voltage
. I say that in the past tense because it stopped working. I was careful but I don't know if it was my fault or not; it stopped working right around the time I took the back-plate off to fit it under my NH-D14. So, if something happened when taking the plate off or if it touched the Noctua (which had electrical tape around the clips, so...?), I'm not sure. But yeah, the voltage from unedited 2.2.3 gave the card I have now an extra 80mhz from the stock voltage, up to 1430mhz. So, add 80mhz to that first card I had, and damn. Would've had a 1450mhz @ +93mv card. Probably would've hit 1500mhz with that one by now if I still had it. And with a block and custom loop set up and the rad out the window like DJ has...God, I don't even want to think
about what that now-dead card could've done
Anyways, yeah, that's why I was determined to get another good one. I had some extra money at the time, and didn't see too many great ones for sale at the time with proof of an overclock, so it went towards binning instead of a SSD. Ah well, I'll get that SSD someday. Want to set up a loop though like you have. Very jealous of people with nice loops.

I have a molex socket above the first card, and one at the bottom of the board facing down
I plugged an extra molex to the bottom one.
I never plugged into the extra power inputs in mine and SLI is running great. Had the voltage up to 1.4v on both cards a couple times and they got enough power as far as I
could tell. But yeah I'm sure someone else knows more than I do. No idea about a more stable overclock from it.Edited by dph314 - 11/16/12 at 6:42pm
