I was running my 990X at 4Ghz @ stock vcore until recently and bumped it up to 4,4GHz/1.26v for that exact reason you mentioned - enjoy it now or it will be like all the others. Im not even pushing it truth be told and its on water too so it'll be around for awhile yet. Good news about no degreadation for you so far, if I crank mine up and run it hard I should at least be able to get past the 780 launch date!

You definitely will. Most of the people here are on air, and even including other models and references and everything, no one that I know of has reported any type of degradation. Obviously references probably never will, because of the locked voltage. But the Lightnings have been out since late June, voltage control shortly after, and I still have yet to hear of anyone experiencing any type of problems. New drivers have been said to lower stability for some, but even if that's true, that has nothing to do with the silicon itself.

Yeah I had to change my way of thinking. I kept my CPU, aside from initial benching when I first got it, at a low voltage with only a mild overclock because it was so expensive. After a month or two, I'm like...why not enjoy it? My H100 can keep temps in the 60s even in the most demanding games at 4.6Ghz, so why not? I have the Performance Plan through Intel as well, so, all the more reason to enjoy it. I still probably won't get my $30-worth out of that Performance Plan since the chip will probably be fine till I upgrade, but it's still good to know I have the option smile.gif

But yeah, if Kepler was extremely sensitive, we probably would have heard something by now. Some crazy voltages have been ran in this thread, a few upwards of +1.5v, and no one has said anything about any type of problem developing. So I'm just going to enjoy my card, and even if I lose a few mhz at some point (which I doubt), an upgrade will be right around the corner anyways. So, I plan on mildly abusing my hardware to get the most out of what I paid for wink.gif

Really looking forward to seeing what your card can do though. You don't plan on doing any benches maxed out just to see what it can do? Not to pressure you or anything biggrin.gif

So.. uh.. you guys think of anything I am able to do about my memory? I put the voltage to the max and can only squeeze out +260 on it stable.. and apparently that's pretty bad lol. Any way to check that its ACTUALLY getting all that extra voltage?

Have you tried it with less voltage?

You can also use a DMM in the test point to check what it's running at under load

I have never tried less voltage, is that the trick, lol.
I have had 2 cards almost since release, I have ran both at 1.5 to 1.6 volts on the core for benching many times and have not noticed any difference in performance from purchase till today. Both on water of course. I use them day to day at stock volts and clocks as there is no need to overclock them during day to day use.
I should clarify that I am not recommending anyone else to use these voltages

Welcome biggrin.gif
Just a tip. You should enable manual fan control in Afterburner and set it to 100% when running benches. Every degree lower helps stability. If you had the stock fan profile running for that run, then I wouldn't be surprised if you can break 1400mhz core when using a manual fan speed of 100% thumb.gif

yes i dont think its that good as mine does 400 with no voltage change and i am yet to push it to the limit so it could do 700 or 800 for all i no at this time,

what bios do u have as some people have said some versions are poor
