Congrats. You can probably crank up the memory another couple of hundred... but mostly just for benchmarking not 24/7 stability.

+500 is about right. I don't know if your core can really be stable for 24/7 even with the volts cranked up, but the fact you can even run it at that speed should mean that you can easily run it past 1300 for 24/7 settings.

Put the aux to -50/-100 it will help for higher oc.
Dafuq with the temp, 50°c core with dat big rad outside the case, and the vrm temp lower. O_o
It's the other way around for me.

I think what I'm seeing is the limit for how fast the block can get heat off the components (mine is all nickel, yours is copper which probably makes a difference). Obviously an RX480 is way more than enough for a single GPU. Hell I was planning on running my cpu and 2 gpus off it.

(That screenshot might also have been with airbubbles still in the system, I'll get fresh one in a sec).

Right now it looks like + 225 core and + 500 memory is the limit. Past that it shatters like glass (only looking at 25 mhz increments).

Setting Aux to -100 and seeing what happens.

EDIT:

New screenshot, +250 seems ok with a few min of playing (it was crashing before with Aux = +100)

For Gaming and to get stable high clocks, which is better on aux? -50 or -100. Based on your experience

Edit: +250 still no go. Just crashed. Thank cripes for SSDs and being able to reboot in 15 seconds. Is Aux supposed to help memory then?

What are your ambient temps like? I too run a quad to gpu:

My temps are max 49 during hot days here which are about 30Celcuis Ambient Temps and max around 46 normally. My VRM's get Warm should i say

So I said "eff it" and just did the loop with only the gpu. Reverse osmosis water. Put together in 5 minutes and filled in another 10. Quad radiator = overkill much? Didn't even bother using the built in psu...I'm an engr. so I used a spare one I had for these sorts of projects)

Hopefully it takes more than 2 weeks for algae to grow. Pump is running full blast.

Just cranked all the voltages to the max and am running 1400 / 3500. No idea if it'll go higher...that's just what I guesstimated to. Playing BF3 with 32x AA like a champ.

Ambient is 25C exactly right now. (Also keep in mind I'm only watercooling the gpu right now. CPU and 2nd 680 on the todo list. Just needed to get the one card working right now). Idle I'm getting 28C core, 30C memory, and 32C VRM.

The stock they have left has probably been reserved for RMA, should be OK as long as everyone doesn't go on a card killing spree.

I still can't figure old why the mem sucks on both 7970s I had. Aw well its going tomorrow.

One of my 680 lightnings does close to 2k memory, but the core isn't as good as on the other card. The other has better core speed, but the memory doesn't like to get pushed over 1800. My 7970L will do 1900 mem on air, but frozen doesn't want to pass 1800. Hard to win...

Very nice! Just about the same as what my better 680 Lightning can do with water in 3d11.

I just picked up my 680 Lightning today, and I've been browsing the bios files for the unlocked LN2 one, and I was curious if download a new/older bios voids your warranty?
post #6320 of 7827
^^ Highly doubtful they even have a method of knowing that the BIOS was reflashed. It's just an eeprom....simple stuff.
