And what watercooling you talking about its not worth it at all, all the money wasted on that you can get sli lol and have almost twice the performance not even 1500 mhz chip couldnt beat that really, i dont know why people run for such insane OC's if you could buy sli instead of H2O.
H2O worth only for cpu cause easy socket swap when you want to change,gpu you are forced to buy new expensive vga waterblocks when you change cards such a waste.
I'm building an ITX rig, so SLI is not really an option, nor can I install a GPU bigger than a ref 670 due to the space limitations of my case once all the radiators are installed... I'm watercooling purely for the fun and looks. I'm aware there's plenty of alternatives that will give me more performance, but nobody ever blows 500 dollars on their cooling for practical reasons
Might as well get a nicely clocking card while I'm at it. The temperature difference could be explained by my card being poorly mounted or something... As we're still talking air I can't really be bothered, am likely to sell it and try my luck on a few other samples I can get my hands on.

Living in Europe, shipping in a 1300MHz card from the States won't really be cost effective but thanks for the offer
Different question: any way to stop the card throttling in 3Dmark 11? It runs at max clocks during 3 hours of playing Far Cry with ease.
