it's time consuming for sure...but honestly...isn't that the fun in overclocking? Baby steps and trial and error.The gains are meh at best...

Yeah, follow SeanPoe's guide.
It's just a ceiling...doesn't mean you will actually see 145%. I think the highest I've seen so far on higher voltage was 133%. And the FTW uses the regular 2x6pin...only the Gigabyte WC uses the 6+8pin AFAIK

I'm jealous. I can bench at 1228, but FC3 and BF3 crash if it's above 1215. I guess I just got a somewhat crappy OCer...
Hopefully OP has luck like yours
mine is a decent OC...just look at overvolted thread and I'd say majority are in the 1300+ on core
mine is actually pretty pathetic for overvolted cards...I was originally 1250 core and 7334 on mem...I'm only up at 1293 because I dialed back every 4mhz of mem for every 1mhz of core...so technically it's a similar OC before overvolting...I just like the bios as both my cards now run the exact same boost so I can sync my settings in Precision X
