Some games are heavier than others, Tomb Raider
and Bioshock Infinite seem to be great to test stability.
I thought I was perfectly stable at 1202 everywhere! 3DMark, Valley, Heaven 3.0/4.0 etc. (even EVGA OC Scanner passed full two hours) Tomb Raider would crash to desktop or cause machine to hang requiring a reset usually within 5-15 minutes. Peak GPU temps of 31°C. Dropped down to 1189 now solid. Your ASICs are slightly better than mine too but I believe at this point we're splitting hairs.
It's amazing that 1202 isn't solid yet 1189 appears to be.
I have memory at 3333 (in BIOS) and just completed a Valley run at 3700!
Time to hit Lara again!
+700 memory is quite impressive. I'm using EK copper/acetal blocks with the aluminum backplates btw. I do believe the backplates reduce VRAM temps considerably over having them exposed however the VRAM on the component side getting cooled by the waterblock really see benefits.
