I did notice that at +25 and +38 it gives the same monitoring voltage of 1.187v, so unless something is reporting wrong, using the top 2 settings for Voltage in precision nets the same voltage of 1.187v. Now at both +25 and +38 I get the same boost clock of 1150 using a +150 on the offset.
At using the +25 I did crash at the +150 offset after it started it's 7th run of Unigine, so starting a run with the +38 and the same +150 offset to see what that does, even though it is reporting the same 1.187v in the monitoring software. What I am still seeing consistently however is that my card DOES NOT down-clock at all and I am NOT using K-Boost. It stays rock solid at 1150mhz when using +25 or +38 on the voltage setting. When using +13 I get 1124 Mhz rock solid.
Will be back after it crashes or makes it through 8-10 runs of Unigine.
I just ran mine, stock everything with 106% TDP and I still get throttling though it's very minor. I then set the core to +90, leaving everything the same and leaving voltage at stock.
Look at the difference (gap where the line goes down shows where I stopped test, applied +90, and restarted):
Basically, what I figured out is no matter what I do... +70 versus +100, the card will throttle down to 1100MHz over time. Even with stock voltages, temps being good, and TDP being the same. Edited by Murlocke - 3/2/13 at 5:04pm
