No you dont, it does not effect the drivers in any way smile.gif

I'm sorry, but I'm pretty new to this overclocking GPU stuff... But may I ask... Is it rare to get a high AICS like my card? My AICS reads 84.2%...... I bought this card used from someone on craigslist who claimed it was only 4 months old. Got it for what i believe was a very good price, and it has been a beast for the past month I've had it. I overclocked it as you can see in the screen shots, and it performs very well and never get hotter than 60 degrees C... Mostly hangs around 57-58C during hours of gaming at 2650x1440 and also 1920x1080. Ive never upgraded the BIOS on this card as I;ve felt I dont need to because of how well it performs. Also, the best thing about it.... The fact that it is NOT volt locked. I can completely manually control voltage. Currently running 100% stable 1.100Mv... 0.803 at idle.... and 1.050 under load after vdroop

It is unusual for GB cards to have such high asics quality. If you read this thread you will see what i mean. your card is older revision and i think this is the reason for this score. smile.gif you're lucky.

yeah most of those new cards with 1250mV are clocked at 1 GHz and are weak overclockers.
It seems the last batch of 900 MHz cards are weak too. Mine can only do 980 MHz at stock voltage and 1175 MHz @ 1300mV not impressive at all.

Yes - mine can do the same - 970 on stock, and ~1200 with 1.3V.
post #478 of 1324
Yeah it seems OC isnt the best on these new cards. But still running 1150 at 1.2v and 1500 mem at 1.4v, after flashing to F43. F1Z was terrible. 1100, even with 1.3v, would crash for me..

I've changed to TriXX tho. When i used Afterburner the card didnt change to 2D voltages in idle?! Which gave me idle temps of 40+ and fans could actually spin up during hd playback etc.. With TriXX they are below 30.. (0.805v idle)
