. And not too bad for benching.
But not as good as you'd want for benching if you can make them faster. I would want to OC those mem sticks by increasing speed or through tighter timing. Although you do have some pretty good timings already.

we have no real proof yet about max vcore, (dont think were gonna find a clear answer also ..lol)
only the 1.52V SVID thats in the datasheets from intel,
what do you need if you run 5.0ghz, vcore wise?
if you can fit the antec cooler on the 7970, problem solved right,
any good aircooler is enough for a delidded ivy..
I need 1.488 to do 5 Ghz.
I agree with VonDutch martinhal
. I'd personally keep my 24/7 below 1.5v, and probably even keep it below 1.4v if I could. Most people only need a 4.5GHz OC for about everything 24/7.
But for benching - I go over 1.5v for short periods of time. Just would not do too high a vcore for 24/7 myself. Personal choice though. Whatever you are good with.Edited by PCWargamer - 12/22/12 at 8:21am
