Yes, but i think 80.04.28.00.3A bios is better choice.

Definitely 3A. I don't know of anyone that has had more luck using the F8 BIOS over the 3A. So, definitely go with the 3A because it doesn't force a hard reset every time you crash from OC instability smile.gif

And yes, 2.2.3 will give you +93mv on either unlocked BIOS. I've been using the non-LN2 BIOS as of late because I don't really need the 1.36v of the LN2 BIOS too often. Get the F7 unlocked non-LN2 BIOS as well, and you can game with that when you don't need all the extra voltage. You can add the +93mv if needed, and you'll be up to 1.31v on the non-LN2, as opposed to 1.36v on the LN2. I can hit ~1380mhz with 1.31v, so I game with that and leave the 3A BIOS for benching.

Hope you get a great card. Good luck thumb.gif

7880?! Defiantly memory. I have found much bigger increase on my 670 going from 7408 memory over stock compared to going to 1330 core over stock.
