I will test the overclockability of the card in the following minutes.
Asic readings are backwards and should not really affect your decision on whether to keep the card.
for example, i have 2 7970s
My primary cards asic reading is 86%, and my secondary is 78% i think.
the primary card is a 1050mv and the secondary is a 1112mv.
The primary card idles 20c hotter than the secondary card at stock fan speeds.
Depending on load and stock/custom fan profiles, it maxes out 5-10C hotter than the other card with the same usage.
my 1050mv card's OC maxes at about 1175mhz. i havent tested but if everything ive heard holds true then my 1112mv card should be able to pass 1200mhz on air and not choke.
