Settings I recommend:
Core Voltage +0mv
Power Limit: 110% (Prioritized)
Temp Limit: 85C (Unlinked)
Memory +250 (You may be able to go higher, or have to go lower)
Fan: 1:1 or whatever you prefer to keep it below 80C. Card will throttle to 1137 at around 80C.This should achieve a steady 1150mhz with no throttling on pretty much any card, while keeping temps easily in check. Try 1.162v first, and if that's not stable try the next, then the next. 1150MHz 1.162v is stable on my card.

1150 1.186.zip 132k .zip file
I tried these BIOS, as well as making my own modified version of Naenon's with lower voltages set - but - my voltages still always read as 1.21 under a full load.
Anyone else encountering this with the modded/non throttle BIOS ? Regardless of what voltage I set in the BIOS, my voltage is still being reported as 1.21. I've tried Afterburner and Precision, both are reporting the same...
Irritating as I'd like to just run the cards at 1150 with a lower than 1.21 voltage to improve temperatures. Done benching the cards and they are already far faster than I need for gaming. Any help would be appreciated.
