Some people don't notice the difference between 1600 CL9 RAM in a gaming system and 2133mhz CL9 ram in a gaming system. I do notice it.
Weren't you talking about GDDR5? I highly doubt that a couple hundred mhz difference in memory clocks make much of a noticable difference either way with Tahiti. Its just not an issue with these cards like it is with Kepler.
I had assumed that you were talking about the GDDR5 on the video card and not the DDR3 on your motherboard.

Going by screenshots it looks like Sapphire Trixx which is a different utility made by Wizzard from techpowerup. He also does Asus' utility iirc.
Just watch out with this tool if you use crossfire, it can crash your pc.

That sucks. I wonder if that is now the norm.
MSI is so inconsistent with what they release. I once received a GTX570 on a GTX470 pcb. It was the same model number as my previous reference MSI GTX570.Edited by BababooeyHTJ - 1/27/13 at 11:04am
